This was our first visit here, and it was very enjoyable. We ordered the burrata and baked oysters as our appetizers. Burrata was good, but my husband thought they put too much bacon in the baked oysters, which took away from the taste of the oyster. For dinner, he ordered scallops, and I ordered a dinner special that evening of... More

We haven't been here for a few years. We were very pleasantly surprised that it still has the quality of food and service we remember. I had steak and my wife had fish. Both were delicious. The wine by glass selection was also very good. Overall, we will definitely go again soon.

While steaks are not the only things on the menu here, they are a big part of this restaurant's reason for being. Many of the non-steak dishes are fairly traditional as you would find in a steakhouse. My husband and I are more adventuresome diners and we had a hard time being excited by the menu. That said, the clam... More

Great food, drinks and service. One of our party has food allergies , and the waitress went over and above to satisfy her. Great atmosphere. Never felt rushed.

We enjoyed my Father's birthday dinner at 22 Bowen and it met the expectations of this special occasion. Service was excellent, attentive, friendly and very helpful with the menu questions and special requests. The steaks were cooked perfect to the temps as requested. The scallops tasted like they just came off the boat (and probably did). Save room for dessert... More
