Named after the spectacular port city on the Mediterranean’s Turquoise coast, Bodrum breathes some fresh air into the NYC’s Upper West Side with an ambitious, unique menu of Mediterranean food. With Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, French & Italian culinary influences (just to name a few), Bodrum places brick oven pizza next to mezzes, kebabs next to fish, finding a common thread that unifies Mediterranean cuisines.

    This restaurant is very good, very comfortable, nicely laid out and, with its expansion, all the more agreeable in now giving breathing space to tables next to one another. Our favorite local restaurant!

    If you like Middle Eastern food, the mezze plate here is my favorite in town. Everything else is delicious as well. In fact, I like everything I've had so much that I keep ordering and it's tough to try something new on the menu. The solution: Go with a larger group to try more things.

    The first time I had the Lentil Soup at Bordrum Turkish restaurant I found it very pleasing and ordered it on my second visit there, that time it was bland. For my main course, I ordered the Lamb Tangine which was very ordinary in flavor. On the next visit there, I ordered the Lamb Chops which were very disappointing because of the small amount of flavor from them.

    The mezze plate is delicious, which is a relief since the last two Middle Eastern restaurants I dined at, always ordering the assorted mezze, were disappointing (i.e., I will not order that again!). At Bodrum, the mezze and the two mains we had were both delicious.

    Had several delicious appetizers and then shared a lamb shush kebab. The meat was perfectly cooked and so tender. Perfect summer meal. And their bread is baked in a wood oven — perfect.

    I was quite happy to discover the service, food and sense of welcome at Bodrum. Our server was charming and knowledgeable about the menu and wines and the food arrived for each course in a comfortable, timely way. I would definitely return for the delicious food and general experience. A terrific find! (If only there were a sister outpost of Bodrum in Chelsea. ( We need excellent restaurants like this)!

    Bodrum has become our go-to place for a reliably excellent and reasonably priced meal in our neighborhood. Personal favorite dishes are the chicken wrap and the mediterranean salad. But we've never had a dish that wasn't delicious, from the Mezze platter to the pizzas and the tangines.

    I brought a group of my friends from Barcelona and they were very pleased with their meals and the service. I diverted from my usual order of Kefte and had the Med. salad, which was good. Of course we shared the Mezze(not Messi!) platter which was tasty as ever. Sitting outdoors on a beautiful night was ideal! Love eating here and often order in. Love that your prices are so fair, and that we don't have to use the awful delivery services. You have your own. thanks!

    Bodrum does not disappoint! It’s been a favorite for a decade, but now I’ve introduced it to my friends and they love it too! The lentil soup is divine, the wood fired pizza is ridiculous, but eating outside on a hot evening I opted for the Yesil Salad with chicken. Absolutely perfect for the hot evening out! Thank you Bodrum for another fantastic meal!
