    The Yurt was fun and had a great welcoming, cozy, touch of magic feel. Perfect getaway feel for winter. It was great for a small private intimate gathering. The food and drinks were very good and comforting. The hot chocolate and coffee drinks were perfect for the atmosphere & weather.

    Food great. Roasted brussel sprouts delicious as an app. Finished up with warm cookie cooked in a skillet and ice cream. Shared with the four of us. Loved the booths to sit in. Easily found parking on street. Will come back.

    We booked an outdoor yurt and had the best time, the service was incredible, or bartender and server were super funny & the food was great! I’m vegan and their vegan options were incredible including the burger, truffle fries & Brussel sprouts!

    I love it ! the yurts are stunning the service is perfect. Buffalo wings were EVERYTHING. Ambience alone made my birthday worth it ! So glad i spent my birthday there. Parking is decent you can park in cvs. And the prices are so reasonable. Why drive downtown when there’s a quality restaurant in lower mills !!! LOVE IT

    Everything from service to food was above my expectations. We sat in one of the Yurts (upscale igloo) outside (party of 5). The decor of the Yurt was beautiful & they even had blankets hanging for the guests. My only piece of feedback is to have a better space heater as yesterday was a really cold day and could have used a bit more heat. We had burrata, crab rangoon dip, seafood chowder and the caseser salad for apps. 10/10 for all apps! For dinner we got the bolognese with homemade pappadelle, salmon dish, chicken pot pie (not in a pot), Steak frites and a kids fish & chips. Again all meals were a 10/10 even the kids fish and chips was fantastic, oh and the sweet potato fries, maybe best I ever had. Lastly we tried both desserts and had an espresso martini and a hot cocoa with screwball whiskey, all delicious. **Disclaimer, we had LOTS of leftovers but we wanted to try a lot of things!**

    Great service. Yurt was fun. Recommended for a group of people say 6-10 for a fun outdoor experience. Dress a bit warmer than normal but the Yurt was for the most part warm.

    Great food and ambience. Great waitress. Could have been a better space heater but heater above was good. Needed more blankets and she found some for us. If more than 4 people maybe bring a couple extra. Dress warm and enjoy.

    We had a birthday party for 12 people in two of the outdoor yurts. It was fantastic! The staff was super helpful during the reserving and planning, and then the waitstaff was great during the party. Drinks are creative, food was tasty 'comfort' food, with plenty to share. Everyone enjoyed the large pan cookie at the end! Thank you, Bowery Bar, for a great experience.

    Dinner in the yurt was great for food, service and ambience. The only difficulty we had was in making the reservation. We were told we could not make a reservation for a table of 8 and had to call back to inquire on the availability of the yurt. Almost went somewhere else.
