Good Vegetarian Options
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.

They have tables on sidewalk. Because there is a bike lane and then a lane of parked cars, this is pretty far from traffic and so quite quiet for outdoor dining on an avenue.

Food and service are good.

Due to the virus Bodrum is only open for outdoor dining, utilizing space on Amsterdam Avenue, both in the gutter and on the sidewalk in front. No issues with food or service, which allowed us to sit without interruption for over two hours. The issue is the noise on Amsterdam Avenue, especially cars with loud radios going by, it is very annoying and distracting. Alas, I realize that this is New York.

They have a nice outdoor dining set up with all COVIF measure being followed. The baba ganoush, wood baked bread, pizza and lamb kebobs were all excellent. Some of the best lamb I've had in some time. The baba ganoush was nice and smoky! Will definitely return.

Everything was great. The outdoor venue was cool and comfortable. We sat for hours and the staff was completely OK with it. One little thing is the portion size was a little smaller than usual but in these pandemic times that is much of a problem.

The restaurant seemed understaffed, so it took longer than usual to do everything; get seated, order, get the actual food (appetizer came after the main dish..), ask for the dessert menu and then pay the actual check. I was flailing my arms at one point to try to get anyone to notice us. The server was very nice though when she actually came over. The main dish was very good; I had Turkish kebab and rice, and my friend had Adana kebab. Baklava was a little dry though. Good outdoor seating area with decent social distancing measures. Utensils were individually wrapped in saran wrap and all of the staff were wearing masks.

Unfortunately dining on the sidewalk and worse in the street is verynosiy and unpleasant. Huge trucks come by was well as sirens. We couldn't hear a lt of the time because of traffic noise and sirens.The food is goo, though they have made the menu look different from their usual menu. I kinda preferred the old one, but they seem to be using the new ones as a place mat. A great place when the traffic is low, there's a breeze, and you're not baking in the sun!

The portion for the main course we ordered (the fish tagine) was very small for $23. It had 5 small bite-size pieces of fish and a small amount of vegetables. When we told the manager, she responded that this was the portion for this fish since the restaurant opened, and did not validate our disappointment. She did send dessert on the house, but we had ordered dessert already so we didn’t even touch it. We didn’t understand why they didn’t give us the dessert that we had ordered on the house. It made no sense.
I had been to this restaurant several times before and never had an unpleasant experience in the past. I will not return given the small portions for the price and the poor customer service.

We love this place - the food is fresh and delicious. We're particularly partial to the hummos and babaganoush, Moussaka, Manti and the Adana Kebab. The pizza's are also delicious! However don't ever go without a reservation.

Delicious food, tastes homemade. Try all the apps. The pizzas are great, too. Lovely service. We had such a leisurely lunch and weren't rushed at all. We opened belated Christmas gifts and were even given a bag for the wrappings. Great food, great service at a very good price.

We have dined several times in the past two years.
All seasons.
Food always good and service friendly and attentive.
Wine prices have jumped - bottles seem especially overpriced and least expensive glass is usually $12.

The reviews for this restaurant are accurate. It is a lovely, unpretentious meal with an attentive staff, reasonable prices in a warm and cozy setting. We started with zucchini fritters and Turkish Patlican eggplant appetizer. I preferred the fritters but both were good. Then 2 of us had the branzino and 1 had the Lamb Tagine and 1 had the Moroccan Fish Tagine. All were yummy. I sometimes find Mediterranean food overly spiced but that is not the case here. The flavors are well balanced and easy on the palate. A very satisfying meal all around. And who could forget the amazing bread? Warm, with a crispy crust. Two of us were tempted to make that our main course. This will be my local go-to place for a reliably good dinner. I hope it stays below the radar and retains the title neighborhood gem!
