22 Bowens Wine Bar and Grille
Sunday - Thursday 5:00pm-10:00pm
Friday & Saturday 5:00pm-11:00pm
Grand restaurant sur l un des principaux pier de newport beaucoup d ambiance.
Carte sympas avec pas mal de choix ( viande/poissons ).
La qualité des plats un peu en dessous de nos attentes ( plats trop cuits ) mais pas mal. L endroit vaut la peine et le service est excellent.
Summertime dining in Newport is an adventure and requires a little patience. The kitchen was understandably backed up with entrees as the appetizers came out quite promptly. Ordinarily this would create quite a stir, however, the friendliness of the servers and staff made the creative dishes worth the wait. Be prepared for a 1 ½ - 2 hour dining experience but one that is worth it.
Server great - food delicious - kitchen disaster - took long time for food - Mgr apologized - no other reparation
Great time! Outdoor seating along Bowen’s Wharf was special treat. Our waiter (Sok) was friendly and extremely helpful in both food and wine selections. Highly recommended!
Management handled a situation very poorly! Not focused on the customer at all! Disappointing that things were handled s badly! And dictated to the wait staff to deal with!!! Poor Poor Poor!!!!
The food wasn’t very good. The Steak was super dry & chewy & the Tuna Poke wasn’t good.
Always great accommodating service! The best steak in Newport.
Used open table and rest took us early w nice table. Great food and darn good service (above avg). Use caution on MP as not always clear.
The swordfish po boy should just be off the menu. Teeny pieces of fish,no way in a NE restaurant. I love a fish sandwich and the Mooring took away all of their best fish sandwiches and now this disappointment. My nephew liked the chicken cordon bleu sandwhich. The cuke salad and side salads were good. As always the manager Julia checks on us,service is always excellent. Just do good food.
The restaurant had a great location, being right in the heart of everything and close to the marina. However, we were underwhelmed by the food choice and menu. For the prices paid, we expected better and had had a better experience the night before at 41 North. The service was friendly, but the restaurant was busy and so we had to wait for the server to come to the table a few times.
Amazing service and food. The duck confit flatbread was heavenly! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Arrived at 8;45 got meals at 10;20. We have eaten here plenty and usually everything is outstanding. Very disappointed this evening, altough the manager seemed just as displeased.
Appetizers and salads (and wines) were fabulous. Food was inappropriately timed- waited 45-minutes between courses and the rib eye steak was supermarket-grade.
Went to Newport with my cousin’s Bride Tribe for a Bachelorette weekend and had a blast! Lunch at 22 was delicious and the atmosphere and weather couldn’t be better. Right on the wharf with friendley staff and great food. A little pricey, but it was worth it for this special occasion.
Fantastic restaurant with superb food, service and ambience!
Burned our appy but the service was excellent and the mains were perfectly prepared with larger portions than expected.
Somehow we got lost in service chain as it took over an hour to get our food. In defense of 22 Bowen’s they did apologize and adjusted the bill appropriately. It is a very busy, noisy place, not our cup of tea.
OMG - awesome food and awesome service! Brian, the chef totally outdid himself. Daniel, our waiter, was beyond exceptional. We visit 22Bowens every summer when visiting family. Highly recommend.
Beautiful location right on the water with great views and romantic setting. I chose the 10 ounce filet which was tender and delicious. My husband ordered the 90 day aged ribeye- he ordered it medium when it arrived and he cut into it it was definitely over cooked to well done. The waitress apologized and took the steak back. They made another one which was brought out by the manager for him to cut into. The second steak was raw and the amanger acknowledged that right away and took it back to be cooked more. The 3rd time it was brought out was still undercooked but in an effort to finally eat we just said it was fine. This wouldn’t prevent us from going back bc the manager was very nice and acknowledged right away both steaks were incorrect. Next time we will stick with 2 filets. Sides were very good, mashed potatoes, a baked potato and the crab meat on the steaks were all enjoyable. Would definitely come back again.
Excellent service as with any other Newport restaurant group restaurant in the past
Everything was excellent from service to food. Great atmosphere with accommodating staff. My husband has many food allergies and they were extremely attentive to those needs. I highly Recommend this restaurant!
Perfect service, cocktails, food, and wine for 6 of us...
It was a festive, crazy busy night- even for a 9:45 Table. We were swept away to a perfect table (near no others) and Jessie, our requested server appeared immediately with a great level of energy and happy attitude.
Her knowledge of the menus, both bar and food contributed greatly to being cared for and both of us, as restaurant people have now established a new moniker for hospitality, as being “Jessied”!
Fresh fish prepared perfectly and served hot, made it all especially excellent, and with some take home leftovers the experience perpetuated as delicious, fun, and memorable.
Great food and service. Our waiter was excellent.
Great food, good wine selection and terrific service. Highly recommend.
Food is excellent and the place is dry nice. Our waiter was one of the worst ever, he took a long time from the start to just order drinks and every time we wanted to order our food he would run away, we finally had to say we need to order. Lastly, we left a gift card with he check and he did not scan it only the credit card.
Outstanding menu, good was incredible and service impeccable.
Excellent in every way possible! Our favorite place to come when visiting Newport!! It never disappoints! Wait staff is exemplary!
I don’t often comment or rate my meals, but this was sub-par on many levels. First, the service was not attentive or accommodating. The shrimp cocktail was very good, but we waited over an hour for our entrees and the wine was not at all timed with the delivery of my wife’s lamb as requested (it came way before). Probably the worst rib-eye I’ve ever ordered. It was correctly cooked but served below room temperature and had a lot of gristle and almost no fat and wasn't salted or seasoned at all. The baked potato was also lukewarm and uninspiring.
Overall, we had high expectations that weren’t met and frankly the only reason I ate my steak was because it was on a plate in front of me.
Food and drinks was very good. The only complaint I have was the service. The waitress was nice and knowledgeable but she took a long time to bring drinks, bread, and overall checking on us to see if we needed drinks etc...
Great food and service. We enjoyed out night out without the kids
Used to be my favorite restaurant. However, after having lunch there, July 5, 2018, I probably won’t return. Everything was different; chowder seemed changed, bloody Mary wasn’t as spectacular as usual, my order came out weird (watermelon feta salad, but came out with no feta, watered down dressing, watermelon chunks that seemed not fresh, and another cubed fruit that was bright yellow and had the texture of pear, but not the flavor, and no roasted olives) and just not the service we’ve always gotten used to at Bowens. In fact, we walked out saying it seemed like it might be under new management, or something. So sad.
Food was amazing, service was shaky. Matt was our waiter who was nice, but you couldn’t hear him as he was beyond soft spoken.
Our meal and overall experience was excellent. Finished just in time to see the 4th fireworks.
Our server Carol was very experienced and a pleasure!
Great 4th of July experience! Waiter was great; allowed us to take our time for dinner. Excellent food as always! One of our favorite places to dine.
This is a very nice restaurant however, they always make us wait even when there are no occupied table. Why do we have to wait for a table 20 minutes after our reservation time when no tables are occupied?????
Outstanding ambience. Meals were good
Put in a very bad table in dark corner of bar after requesting window table with view. There were empty tables by the window set for dinner st 3:30 lunch. Told they were unavailable ...
Waited almost an hour for good. Very underwhelmed with service and food. All in all a very negative experience!
Excellent gluten free options. Great service. Sunday lunch
Food was excellent. Jonathan, our server went above and beyond! Great place for a nice fine dining dinner. Wasn’t our first time, and won’t be our last!
