The service was exceptional and the staff you can tell are all well trained. When passing waiters, hostesses or management from the front door on the way to the back outdoor area, all employees look you in the eye and say “hello”, or “have a nice evening”!
The food was very good (although my fish taco could have been made with a little bigger portion). Overall our evening (4 of us) was very enjoyable!
The outdoor patio cannot be beat. It is beautiful and a very pleasant environment. The food is fine, but the venue makes up for it.
The atmosphere of the outdoor patio at Bowery Bar was fantastic. On a Wednesday evening there was a small crowd and it was quiet enough to hear the great playlist and engage in conversation. The service was truly fantastic!
I met an old friend for lunch. It was very nice; the service was excellent and we were definitely not rushed. I had the fish tacos which were delicious. She had the Baja chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries which she enjoyed.
It was a rainy night and all terrace and inside diners were squished together. However, through the good graces of Brian and front of house staff, chaos was kept to a minimum and everyone was having a great time. What a comfortable neighborhood tavern! The bar has plenty of seats and dining room and terrace options are also fine. The bar makes excellent drinks and the kitchen is solid. On my third visit here, I've enjoyed the guac or the popcorn shrimp starters followed by burger, blackened fist tacos and the Sangweech. All very well done. Our waiter, Chloe, was friendly, helpful and prompt. This is a place for frequent visits.
Mother nature didn't help us at all with all the rain yesterday! Coming from New Hampshire, We celebrated my cousin's birthday yesterday here and was hoping to get a spot outside but because of all the rain, we ate inside. There was 9 of us, so the area where we sat was kind of tight. But other than that, the food was EXCELLENT and the drinks were delicious and strong. I will definitely come back and hopefully the weather will be better for next time to enjoy the outside!
Fantastic drinks and delicious food! Highly recommend the cob salad!
Good service, food was good. Outside is a nice atmosphere for a date
OMG! Thank you for putting up with me and my family. I always have a great time when I'm here but this time was too much for me. However, I will forever be grateful for not only the customers around us but the staff for begin so patience. Thank you so much!
My sisters loved the food and that Watermelon Margarita Pitcher is soooo good! We'll be back but without the kids!!!!
Fabulous patio seating ambience and great food/service. 10/10 recommend.
Absolutely loved everything about this place! A hidden gem. The cocktails were tasty and not too strong. I want to bathe in a vat of the spinach dip with caramelized onions, served with fresh pita bread. The burgers were huge and the fries were crisp. It’s loud, but fun. Can’t wait to go back!
Love the back yard! The outside area makes me feel like I am on vacation. The staff is friendly and mostly accommodating! Because it is a popular spot on summer nights it can feel a bit rushed. I’m not a fan of leaving a deposit for a reservation.
Great outdoor space, large and different types of seating. Everyone that served and seated us was great except our waitress who was efficient but not friendly or interactive at all. Food was higher level than I expected. Tuna tacos and burrata were VERY good!
Great food, vibe and service
Amazing food, service, drinks and atmosphere! I can't wait to go back.
Lovely brunch spot. We ate family style and everyone's entrees were really good. We'll be back.
Belated Fathers Day
Great experience overall. Friendly and accommodating staff, yummy food.
My FAVORITE place ever! Love love love love love loved
Delicious food , great atmosphere and drinks!
My daughter Katie works at sister restaurant, Lucy's!
I really want to start out by complimenting the service. I was with my friend who has multiple food allergies (eggs, nuts, strawberries and tomatoes); she told the waitress who took notes (actually, surprisingly unusual) and placed her order. The waitress said she would talk with the cook and then came back to say there was a slight chance of cross-contamination, so my friend was able to adjust her order accordingly. The order was filled exactly as requested and we were able to have a lovely lunch. Really, outstanding care was taken.
We ate on the outdoor patio, which is really second to none. It is a beautiful space.
The food was good--we both had the Baja chicken sandwich, although my friend's was modified and it was a good grilled chicken sandwich.
I actually took my husband back the next day. Again, we ate outdoors. He had the baja chicken and I went with the fish tacos. The tacos were good; the chicken was also good. Service was absolutely fine.
Beautiful outdoor space with light misters spraying from above to keep you cool on a hot day. Food and drinks are good with large portions provided.
Great restaurant, layout, service.
Such a perfect patio for a hot summer night and very family friendly
Great food, great staff and really nice outdoor seating.
Father’s Day at the Bowery was great.
Father’s Day brunch. We had a reservation, told it would be better for ‘us’ (the hostesses) if we ate outside. We were with our four year old twins and it was 95 degrees. Asked for indoors as there were many open tables. They sat us with two four year olds at the bad on stools while 3 other booths in the area stayed open the entire time we were there. 1 hour wait for food. waitress rude, hostess rude and very unpleasant.
Covid clearly has them understaffed and very very busy. But not worth the visit until they get some of this straightened out, especially with 3-4 restaurants right next door with better food.
We went here for our first outdoor dining experience since, you know, everything (vaguely gestures at state of world). And it was amazing! The outdoor area is so nice, and the misters made it totally doable on a hot day. It's so beautiful, I almost thought we were in the Caribbean!
Great place loved the outdoor seating!
The back patio is a diamond in the rough. You truly don't feel like you are in the city.
I’ve been to The Bowery three times and it has not disappointed. A great place to meet on a Friday for drinks and appetizers.
Service and food was amazing! Love the atmosphere there!
Got the oysters and the steak and avocado salad. 10/10 recommend both! The oysters were large and so fresh and the steak on my salad was cooked beautifully!
Everything was great, the menu was out of what I originally wanted but back up meal was delicious!!! An amazing hole in the wall hem, right in my backyard… will be back soon!!!!
We had a great experience at the Bowery The service was fantastic the food and appetizers were amazing 11 of us had lunch there and all very happy with our meals Our waitress was amazing We fined on the patio what a beautiful spot Can’t wait to go back
If I am not mistaken my server's name was Lydia and she was AHHHH-MAZING! I loved my overall experience and she was a large part in making sure of that. The drinks and food were great and I will certainly go back again.
Loved the brunch here! Our server was great and always on top of it no matter how busy it was. Food and drinks were great. Will definitely be returning.
Food and service excellent. Staff always friendly. Lobster Roll among the best in Boston.
Great food, great outdoor setting - a little pricey but worth it.
We had a going away party for our colleague who’s leaving for another job in Europe. The service was outstanding - our server was Gwyneth, she was very accommodating and gracious with handling all our requests, especially the recommendation for vegetarians.
Thanks for a great time.
