Great food, but very expensive! I enjoyed the cheese plate and wedge salad. Hubby really like his calamari appetizer and steak dinner with brussel sprouts. However, I did not enjoy the clam chowder, which is something I order all over New England. It was way too salty and a bit lumpy. This dinner and several drinks were not worth the... More

My husband and I decided to enjoy an intimate couples Thanksgiving this year, for a number of reasons. A guide online recommends Newport RI as a good place for this, and that's where we went. 22 Bowen was also recommended as one of the best restaurants in town, and we booked a table weeks early. It could not have been... More

We spent a Saturday night at 22 Bowen. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice. It was busy, but you could talk. Good drinks before dinner. For the meal, we started with oysters and the French Onion soup. The oysters were excellent and the soup was even better than I thought it could be. The main courses of salmon... More

Most restaurants on wharves conjure up warm summer nights; cocktails on the deck and soft breezes off the water. But 22 B is toasty, even when the temperature is low and a hard winter wind is thrashing across Narragansett Bay. More importantly,the white linen table cloths are delightful under delicious dishes. We suggest the tasting menu as it has many... More

Tender, chef seasoned or with topper of your liking. a La Cart entrees can be ordered with sides which are large enough to share. The atmosphere exudes an impressive level of classy with out excluding anyone. The wait... More
