Total winner

Had lunch at Borsum today based on previous reviews. We were given ice water and warm, flaky Turkish seeded bread as soon as we sat down, followed by menus and a drink order. The waitress was well-versed in all the dishes, and we settled on a side order of lebne (strained yogurt with cucumber, dill and walnuts) a thin pizza and chicken Baghatar (thinly pounded and spiced, with a side salad and rice). It was all so delicious that we are returning this week for dinner.

Love the food here, love the service, its fantastic!!!! The ambiance is super cute, and they have out door seating! Pizza is really good, overall you can't go wrong with anything you order here. The service was on point as well. Try Bodrum out, you wont be sorry.

Great for Dinner!

I took a group of girls here on friday to celebrate the holidays and we had such a good time that i wanted to write a review. The place is really cute and comfortable and warm! We even got these warm wine drinks compliments of the owner which was totally weird (warm wine?) but really really good! We decided to order a few pizzas, kebobs, and the mezzes and share everything. The food was superb, the wait staff were super friendly and knowledable about the food, and we basically had just a super fun time. Def will be back!!

Wonderful Night

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. My wife and I like to try different restaurants on our date nights. After reading the reviews, we decided to go here and it was great. Everything from the food to the service was excellent. Guys, you will be a rockstar if you take your gals here.

Classy,Graceful and Almost Perfect

One of the best meals I've had in New York.

Went to dinner with my boss and two clients from Japan and the whole dining experience was impeccable...everything from the food to the service.

My table manners and etiquette shined that night.

Simply classy, graceful and almost perfect.

My absolute FAVORITE Place......

This is my absolute favorite place in the city and my go-to spot when I have visitors in town. The food is delicious and typically made with local ingredients, the wine list is extensive and the waitstaff is extremely friendly. Also, this is great place to go with a group because you can try a bunch of different small plates.

A great new find!

Great food, good service, nice ambience...I'm so glad this place opened up in my neighborhood! It's now our ""go to"" place. The pizza is especially good.

Perfect birthday dinner

Picked this restaurant based on the positive Citysearch reviews for my father's birthday. We had a party of six and we were comfortably accommodated at one of the banquettes. We shared dolmas, celery root, and salads for the apps and had a variety of fish and lamb dishes for the main course. STANDOUTS: branzini, fish tagine, dolmas, organic salad. Restaurant is beautiful and the service is attentive and friendly! The hostess was charming and even though were were a mixed group of ages, we all agreed we loved the place. Also, delicious baklava! My husband said his Turkish coffee was delicious, they ask you how sweet you want it.

FANTASTIC Turkish food

Great addition to the Upper West. My wife and I haven't had manti this good since our trip to Istanbul last year. Try the mezze platter to get a taste of everything. I can also highly recommended the Adana kabob -- the red meat goes perfectly with the cool yogurt sauce. The baklava is also top quality. I'm a foodie, if you can't tell, and Bodrum is a top tier restaurant on my list. It's been there a year now and they just keep getting better.

Good Food and Good Martinis

Love the mezze plater, and the pizza. The passion fruit martini is a winner. To bad they don't have sitdown bar.

Great time at Bodrum

I decided to have my birthday party at Bodrum after I read the reviews. We had a great time and the food was amazing. Their sample plate of mezze, and the Branzini spacial was so good, I was craving for more the next day. Im so happy to have this place on the upper west side.

Great food, great service! We ate in the sidewalk cafe on a Saturday night, just ordered some appetizers to try it out. We got the sheperd salad and the sampling platter and ate every last bite! After we licked the plate clean we ordered another appetizer, the manti lamb dumplings, and it was just as delicious. Our waitress recommended we come back to try the desserts, and we did the next night! The baklava is flaky and perfectly sweetened... we will be back often! Highly recommended!

Great Experience!

We just moved to the neighborhood. Our doormen recommended this place. What good job he did. We just loved it. Its a small cozy place with wood-burning oven. We became already regulars to this place. And we are hooked to the Sampling plate of Mezze and the Pizza. Service is very friendly and attentive.

Good food and nice ambiance

Came here for my friends birthday, and loved it. Uptown restaurant with a downtown feeling. The roasted half chicken was very juice and my friends white pizza was out of this world. Will be back for my birthday.

Turkish Delight!!

Amazing Turkish food. The atmosphere is simple but authentic, makes you feel like you are welcomed. Delicious platters of all the traditional spreads; babahganush, manti, hummus, shephard salad, etc. accompanied by their delicous home-made bread is perfect for sharing. The wood-oven roasted chicken and grilled swordfish kebab are so tender and flavorful, served with a refreshing vegetable salad and rice. After lunch/dinner you must end the meal with a traditonal turkish coffee and a piece of their phenomenal baklava (made with pistachios).

The best authentic Turkish cuisine on the Upper West Side

Bodrum is indisputably the best, most authentic Turkish restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Arguably one of the best Turkish restaurants in the entire city. The staff are very warm and welcoming and the ambiance is pleasantly low-key. Not only are the Turkish dishes excellent, the pizzas are out-of-this-world. In addition, the prices are reasonable and the service is unfailingly cordial. There is also take-out service. Finally there is no more hard-working, dedicated restaurant owner in New York: Hussein is almost always there every day and his presence assures that the diner will always have a friendly welcome and an exceptional meal.
