Hey Sonia Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad to hear that you will be returning we cant wait to hear about your next visit, The Bowery team!
Food was very tasty and lovely atmosphere.
Service was a little slow -starters came before our drinks (which were ordered first) etc.
Overall definitely coming back though!
Hey Rachel Thank you for your feedback its greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! The Bowery team !
Lovely venue, great gin menu and the cocktails we had were nice. The food was average verging on bland. Wouldn't go back to eat, but it's a nice spot for a drink.
Hi KikiDawn Thank you for your feedback. We're working closely with our kitchen team to ensure that these issues do not happen we are constantly evolving our menu and will certainly pass this feedback over to our chefs. Many thanks The Bowery team!
Perfect for our girlie night. Menu was very good making it difficult to choose but I had the salt and chilli squid and the Thai chicken curry which were both delicious. Service was excellent. A great night!
Hi Emma Thank you so much for your feedback We're so glad to hear that you had a great dining experience with us, we cant wait to welcome you back soon. The Bowery team!
First time here (since it was The Albany). Nice spot for lunch. Food and service were good.
Hey FusssyDiner We're delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us, we look forward to seeing you again in the near future. The Bowery team !

Hey Fmh50 We're so glad to hear that you had a great dining experience with us. We hope to see you again soon. The Bowery team !
Lovely experience at the Bowery for my daughter’s graduation. Thank you so much.
Hey Roisin We're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us, we look forward to seeing you again soon. The Bowery team!
Terrible experience, however the food was beautiful. Waitress ignored me when I first walked in. Ordered drinks and the prosecco order was the wrong measure. The glass literally had about 30ml of prosecco in, which was corrected. Then the wrong order came out and had to be corrected (which we had to wait for). Honestly if it wasnt for the food this would have been textbook the absolute worst dining experience. I'm not sure if the waitress was having a bad day but to get every step of our service wrong honestly I have never experienced before. The food however was beautiful, which partly made up for the experience.
Hi Andy Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you had this experience. We will ensure that these issues are addressed with our staff and that they are corrected. We hope to see you again soon for a much better experience. The Bowery team !
The only thing worse than having a terrible experience is everyone around you also having an awful one. The food was mediocre, bland and definitely not worth the wait. The service was horrendous, we had to ask frequently for our next course or to order another drink. There was missed side dishes, food being sent back and incorrect desserts at the tables around us which just overall contributed to a terrible environment. So disappointing as the place has a lot of potential but I really wouldn't be recommending it to anyone.
Hi Maeve, Thanks for your feedback. We are constantly working with the Kitchen and front of house team to improve the standard of food delivered and reduce the wait times. We will be addressing the issues you raised with the team and work to correct them. We hope you will return to see a much improved experience. The Bowery
Had a lovely meal very friendly efficient staff then moved outside and enjoyed a couple of drinks 🍾🥂on the terrace
Hi Loretta, We're delighted you enjoyed your meal and drinks on the terrace. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. The Bowery team!
-staff were lovely
-no air conditioning so this was uncomfortable on one of the hottest days of the year
-there was a very long wait between the starter and main, advised staff twice about this and then a third member of staff arrived to ask if we were ready for our main
-the food was lovely when it arrived
-there was no salad option on the menu, all meals quite heavy for hot summer’s weather
Hi Oonagh, Your feedback is important to us to help understand the needs of our guests. We will be addressing your issues amongst the team. We hope to welcome you back soon. The Bowery Team
Service was very slow.
Over a 20 minutes waiting on a drink order.
Brought the wrong main meals.
We couldn't order a desert due to wait times.
Staff were friendly and apologised for delay but worth highlighting so people know what to expect.
Would try again but definitely not during a peak time. Food and value was good.
Hi Thom, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the food and found it good value. We are constantly working with the front of house team and the kitchen to reduce the wait times and improve our standards. We hope to welcome you back soon. The Bowery
A lovely lunch on the terrace. Food/service very good. Music was louder than expected for a lunch time sitting.
Thanks for your feedback. We will look into the music volume at lunchtime and keep it in fitting with the atmosphere we aim to achieve. We look forward to welcoming you back. The Bowery Team
Fabulous lunch with friends on a beautiful sunny Saturday… lovely food, great table on the verandah and super service, next time I’m in Belfast… ‘I’ll be back!’
Hi Trevor, It's great to hear you enjoyed the food and your experience on the Terrace. We look forward to welcoming you back! The Bowery Team
Didn’t get main courses but the drinks were nice service very slow
We all had lovely meals and a great table in the air conditioned seating. The server was friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.
Thanks for your feedback! It's great to hear you enjoyed your meal and were well looked after by the team. We look forward to seeing you again soon. The Bowery
What a lovely venue with wonderful, attentive staff! Food and drinks were beautifully presented, served and cooked to perfection. Thank you for a lovely meal. We'll be back again soon.
Hi Aideen, Thanks for your review, it's great to hear that you enjoyed your meal and drinks, also that the service was as we expect it to be. We look forward to seeing you again soon! The Bowery team
Lovely food, good variety. We had fish pie and burger.
Hi Helena, Thanks for your feedback. We're glad you found the menu had good options and that you enjoyed your dishes. Hope to see you again soon. The Bowery
Overall love this place, but the smell from the toilets could be smelt in the restaurant - I did mention to a member of staff, and apparently, they are fixing it.
Food was good but very poor service- we had to make multiple requests for things even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. Also lots of spilling of drinks by staff
Hi Brenda, Thanks for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal. We are working hard through persistent training to improve our level of service so it's disappointing to hear that your experience was not what we expect it to be and we will follow up with the team that was looking after your table, please except our apologies. We hope to see you again The Bowery team
We had an excellent meal and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very busy and we had a long wait between starter and main course. However we were offered a complimentary drink which was a nice gesture. Will definitely return.
Hi Maggie, Thanks for your feedback, your input can help us to improve our offering, I will mention to the Chef about the wait times. I'm glad the staff looked after you well. We look forward to seeing you again. The Bowery team.
We had both excellent food and service at the Bowery, we had the chicken wings, the lamb and the chicken supreme as well as sticky toffee pudding to finish. 5 stars
Hi Gemma, Thanks for your review, it's great to hear you enjoyed your meal and experienced good service with us. We look forward to welcoming you back! The Bowery Team
Really enjoyed lunch on the terrace .
The only downside was conflicting music from pizza place next door.
Hi Fionnuala, Thanks for your feedback, glad you enjoyed your lunch and hope to see you back soon. The Bowery team
Food was okay but it could have been hotter. The bill was wrong which is always a bit awkward.
HI, Thanks for your feedback, we welcome all feedback as it allows us to identify areas which need addressed, i will certainly pass these comments on the kitchen and will continually be staff training to ensure thses issues wont happen in the future many thanks The Bowery Team
Got given the wrong bill at end of meal which was a shock but it was quickly rectified so all good
Thanks for your feedback, apologies on the bill and glad it was rectified quickly for you. many thanks The Bowery Team
We had a family meal at The Bowery, and whilst the food was great, we had a few reservations. Our eldest daughter is a vegetarian, and specifically picked a dish from the menu, only to be told much later that it was unavailable. This should have been said at the time, as the remainder of us were soon expecting our main courses.
HI, thankyou for your feedback as it allows us to identify any issues that need addressed, apologies for the service you have received and we will be delivering on going staff training to combat these issues in the future. We hope this hasnt put you off returning to us and we hope to see you again soon Thanks The Bowery Team
This is our second visit to The Bowery and we will be returning.
Succulent steaks cooked as requested by both members of our party.
Side dishes of salad and vegetables were different from the normal you come to expect and tasted delicious.
Service quick and efficient for 9pm on a Saturday night which impressed us.
Staff professional from the first introduction on entering the premises to the end of our dinner.
A range of ages in staff and the professionalism, friendliness and efficiency shone from the younger staff to the older staff.
Great quality food, efficient service, lovely location.
Thanks for your review! It's great to hear that the level of service was professional and friendly and that you really enjoyed your meal! We look forward to welcoming you back! The Bowery
This was a good experience, food and service was good and a lot better than it has been on previous weeks recently, hopefully this will continue
Hi Aileen, Thanks for your feedback. Through increased training the level of service is definitely improving and we will continue to work hard to develop the team. Hope to see you soon. The Bowery
Great girls lunch, excellent food and service, loved the buzzy atmosphere of the outdoor dining area. Will definitely be back!
Hi, thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed the excellent food and service! We look forward to welcoming you back. The Bowery
Best meal for quality, value and service we’ve had anywhere in a long time, will definitely be back soon
Service was slow and some of our order was forgotten, when it arrived we had almost finished eating. Fish and chips tasted like oil and the bland steak pie which was supposed to come with 'fancy peas' did not come with any vegetables - waiter said they were in the pie, which they weren't.
Chocolate pudding was rock hard and not very easy to eat. With the exception of the rump of lamb and the crab starter all of the meals ordered (for 6 people) were disappointing.
Venue was nice but very much all fur coat no knickers sadly
Hi Alice, We are very sorry to hear of your experience with us, thankyou for your feedback as it allows us to target areas that need addressed. I will certainly pass your comments on the chef. We hope this hasnt put you off returning to us in the future to allow us to give the service and food we know we can deliver. The Bowery Team
Food was very good but not outstanding.
Location and the outdoor eating area is great.
Service was excellent.
Music unnecessarily loud.
Desserts were yummy.
Hi Karen, Thanks for your feedback. It's great to hear that the service was excellent! We are constantly working on improving our offering and will look into the points you made. Look forward to welcoming you back. The Bowery

Good atmosphere. Well and safely organised. Smart, friendly staff.
Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed your meal! The Bowery

Service was excellent, particularly impressed with Patrick. Food was lovely. A very enjoyable evening had by all.
Thanks for the feedback, great to hear you were well looked after. Hope to see you again soon!
Poor servive. Mains not warm. Shell in crab meat. Beef underdone. Dessert portion ridiculously small for the price. Too expensive for the level of service and quality.

Food was very good but the service was very poor, drinks took almost half an hour to arrive and 2 of the people in our party got their food after everyone else had half finished their meal. Very disappointing.
Hi Nicole, Thanks for your feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed your meal. We are working hard to improve the standards of service through increased staff training and are disappointed to hear about your experience. We hope to see you again! The Bowery
