    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.

    I mistakenly made a reservation for 2 instead of 4 on a busy Saturday night. The hostess was terrific to us and after a 20 minute wait was able to accommodate us. We had great service and delicious food.

    Had an amazing time in the yurt with 8 friends. Our server was very attentive and kept the drinks following. Ordered a bunch of apps to share which were great, brussel sprouts was a group favorite. We ordered so many apps that every couple decided to split their entree. The kitchen was nice enough to split the entrees and put it on individual trays. The yurt was warm and beautifully decorated, we had a blast!

    My friends were visiting from out of town and I had to bring them to the Bowery! Thankfully we made a reservation because brunch was very popular! We all got the boozy adult iced coffee and it was a perfect combination of alcohol and coffee! We then had the breakfast tacos, pancakes and “hangover bowl”. Everything came out perfect 10/10 will be returning for brunch again soon!

    Online said no group reservations. Would have been helpful to have mentioned that we could watch TV outside in open area, rather than reserving two booths inside. (On nice day), but overall went well. Thanks

    Food was average pub food, nothing really to separate it from others. The cocktails were tasty and well balanced. Service was minimal, had to ask for cutlery. Won’t rush back.

    This restaurant never disappoints with both food quality and atmosphere. Our party of 5 was able to enjoy one of the last warm nights of the year on the back patio and we were free to stay as long as we needed to. That patio is a gem. The food all amazing. And I was brought a cool glass of red wine that wasn't the same temp as outside. Loved it!

    We sat on the outside patio for Brunch and it was very pleasant. We started off with a Bloody Mary and walking on sunshine. We ordered the corn dip to start ( amazing) and then we ordered the Cobb salad, steak house burger and the chicken sandwich. We give all entrees a thumbs up burger was cooked to perfection and the fries were delicious. I honestly couldn’t decide on what to have but I made the right choice with the burger. Definitely to full to order dessert. We are going to hit this spot up again as we want to try the breakfast side of the Brunch menu.
