Excellent food and service! Worth a visit!!
This is the second time we have dined here when visiting Newport. We both order a la carte steaks with a couple if sides. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the cognac cream sauce was delicious. The waitress helped us in choosing the perfect bottle of wine to accompany the dinner we were having. We will definitely be back.
Food was outstanding, presentation was exceptional, and portions were healthy. The waiter, John Paulo was superb. We asked him to space out the courses - (there’s nothing worse than going out for an pricey dinner and be done too quickly) - and it was spaced nicely. He actually asked what he could do to make
Our dinner even better. Very attentive but not interruptive.
We lucked out, as it was restaurant week, so we got three courses for $50. Good to note that you should ask if the restaurant week entrees are exactly the same as the regular entree - because not all of them are. For instance, the special scallops only had 4 scallops, while the regular priced entree served 6 scallops. So depending on your appetite, it might not be worth it economically to get the “restaurant week” special.
Special drinks are pricey, I had a champagne cocktail which was $13 for a small champagne glass. But regular beers are reasonable at seven dollars each.
Overall, we had a really special dinner, I would recommend it.
Jack and his staff were very attentive. We stumbled upon restaurant week and found the menu options and food terrific. it was a cozy, inviting environment and the pace was relaxed.
I love the location of this restaurant. Their sangria is my favorite. Service was excellent.
This restaurant has great food and is in a great location on a wharf. We enjoyed an anniversary dinner there. Everything met our expectations.
Restaurant week and the menu was to not disappoint. We sat upstairs in the deck area and had an awesome view. Michael is one the best servers we have ever had here, highly recommend requesting him!
We went for restaurant week. The menu was good, my scallops were Luke warm and could’ve been cooked a little more. My husbands steak was perfect, the truflfle Mac and cheese is out of this world! Service was impeccable and the restaurant is beautiful and they catered to our anniversary!
Service was first class, Svetlana was both charming and efficient. Her timing was impeccable, we never felt rushed or ignored, she was there to fill our wine glassed just as we were ready for more. We were there for restaurant week and the choices and quality were spot on, we've been to some restaurants were you are made to feel like coupon people when you order from the restaurant week menu but here they understood the reason for having a restaurant week and did their best to make you a regular customer. The next time we go to Newport I will definitely be making a reservation at 22 Bowen's and asking for Svetlana as my server.
Always a great time and experience at 22 Bowen’s. My favorite place to hit up when I’m in town with friends, family or solo!
I came to Newport with my best friends for an impromptu girls weekend. It was hands-down the best meal we had all weekend and the service and ambience made the experience even better. Manny was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable about the extensive wine/cocktail lists and gave us some great tips for our stay. Thank you again for the fantastic meal, we will be telling all our friends and family to venture here whenever they visit Newport!
A great experience as usual
Terrific lunch on their heated deck overlooking the water. Delicious meal on the Restaurant Week menu, would highly recommend!
We went to enjoy a Restaurant Week lunch and it definitely did not disappoint. The toasted ricotta gnocchi was amazing! I could have eaten that as my appetizer and entree!!
We came with another couple for restaurant week, and to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. I always thought restaurant week dinners were $35 for 3 courses. I was unaware some restaurants can charge $50, as was the case here.
That being said, both men in our group got the 3 course special which was fabulous. ( Kale salad, roast salmon, and a dessert.) Both the apple pie and cheesecake were delicious. The ladies ordered from the regular menu. My French onion soup was fabulous, and the roast duck dish was very tasty and delicious. We thought our meals at
22 Bowens were the best we’d had in a very long time at any restaurant! Loved it!
A very special touch was a celebratory glass of prosecco that was gifted to us for our anniversary! Thank you so much for making it a very special night!
Food was delicious, service was friendly but a bit slow.
Bowan’s has the best steak on the island. It can be a little pricey but it is worth it. Their wine selection is also something to take note of.
WE would definitely return to have a meal here without hesitation. A nice quiet intimate evening along with very rich tasting food. You will be paying more to dine here than other restaurants in the area but it is definitely worth the price to be a cut above the rest.
Highly recommend 22 Bowen’s. Went there for our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. The best meal we ate in Newport!
The food is amazing at 22 Bowen! Food is always fresh and hot as they utilize runners in addition to the wait staff. The menu is varied and is always consistently good!
The food and service was delicious and first rate!!!
Incredible food, stellar service and nice ambiance. Went here for my fifth wedding anniversary and requested a quiet table and got one. Enjoyed personable and excellent service from Michael and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
22 Bowen’s was referred to me by a friend as we were looking for a nice place for dinner to celebrate our son’s 21st Birthday. We haven’t been to Newport in quite sometime. It Was a delicious dinner, staff were accommodating and you can’t beat the location!
Outstanding food and service. Our waiter, Michael, was the best. He was knowledgeable, friendly, had a great sense of humor and served us at a comfortable pace. I will request Michael as our server in the future.
The atmosphere is very nice on the Newport waterfront. The romaine lettuce in the ceasar salad was very fresh and the dressing very good but too many croutons for me. The salmon was excellent served over a sticky rice with a nice sauce. My husband had the fish and chips which he loved. Our service was excellent and the other servers at 22 Bowens were very friendly also with smiles and wishing us a good day. Definitely will return!!
Menu and service were excellent as always. Highly recommend the “Warm Welcome” cocktail. It’s nice to see some local options for beer as well. Atmosphere is nice for date night. Lobster was excellent.
My favourite restaurant in Newport. Always on point with the steak. The wine list is perfect
Great spot for a serious date - pricey, but we took advantage of restaurant week. The first course was the best by far - Pork Belly over lentils for my wife and Bone Marrow for me. Both were to die for.
Excellent all around.
I was in the area with a friend and wanted to show her Newport and thought dinner at Bowens would be a good way to cap off the evening. Great food and wine as usual and comfortable. She was impressed by the menu and ambience. Food and service were outstanding.
Everything ordered was delicious! Our waitress was attentive and gave great recommendations to all our menu questions! Favorite restaurant in Newport.
Place was great. John our server is top notch. Food soooo good. Nice wine selection.
Clam chowder was delicious, as was all our food. Great wine options too. Great location and ambience.
Excellent experience. I got the prime Delmonico and my wife got the salmon and both were delicious. Service was also very good, well paced and professional. I took off one star because it was a little dark inside.
A fantastic dining experience. The food was delicious, the cocktails were expertly crafted, and the service was professional and friendly. We had a very flavorful Delmonico steak with fabulous truffle Parmesan fries and truffle Mac and cheese. The lobster cocktail and calamari brought the best of the sea straight to the table.
Great special dinner except for the couple next to us who thought it was a good idea to bring a toddler to this restaurant. We wished we didn't have to listen to her screams all throughout dinner. But otherwise, the food was excellent (tuna was great, as was chicken) and the service was very attentive. Thank you!
Service was slow & we went off peak. Steak was steak. $40+ steak! Not medium, as I asked, well done & burnt on the edges. Sides were small. If I’m paying that much for a steak, there should be a side salad....it’s lettuce! Lettuce with some dressing should not be $12 extra! Chowder was $9 & that was good, not the best I’ve had. $150 with tip for two people, one beer, no dessert at 3:30. There are too many other great restaurants around with better food with less outrageous pricing. Won’t be back.
The best Lobster Roll on the North East/Canada. I highly recommend.
We will go back again on our next cruise to New England next year.
Fantastic place. From the minute we walked in, we were treated great. The service was amazing and the food and drinks were amazing. Will add this place to our must do when in Newport list. Worth every penny.
The dry aged prime steaks are out standing the filet Mignon with blue cheese over mashed was outstanding the wine selection is great the waitstaff is attentive. Bartender;Taylor was excellent. We love sitting at the bar
