Had been back and forth choosing a restaurant and picked 22 Bowen. Very glad we did. Nice place. Had the cheese board and Delmonico steak both delicious. Very good wine list. Service by Fabio was excellent.

I was lucky enough to score an outside seat, where I enjoyed the BEST mojito of my life. The pineapple kiwi mojito will rock your world. The bartender was super friendly, the food was amazing and the view cannot be beat. It was cold/windly while I visited, but the fun atmosphere made me forget all about it.

I had lunch here and unfortunately the pier was under construction so the view was obstructed. My cousin had the chicken sandwich and although tasty, too large to eat. She had a difficult time with it. The cabbage-pear slaw was very tasty. I had the braised short ribs with a carrot purée and it was quite delicious. I also had... More

22 Bowen's is the standard for top notch service and always expertly prepared steaks and seafood. All of the employees are part of a well thought out employee stock option program and as a result, they all truly care about each and every meal and your experience. 22B is by no means inexpensive but if you're looking for a fantastic...

Had lunch at 22 Bowen's Bar and Grill. When we first went in, I thought it was going to be "stuffy" in there, but when we were seated and given our menus, I felt really comfortable. Our waitress, Suzanne, was very pleasant. I had the salmon burger special. It was delicious. My husband had the shortrib sandwich, and our friend... More

My Girl and I came here for a romantic dinner. We split the prime Delmonico and the 45 day dry aged sirloin. Both were fantastic but the Sirloin was something special. I've never had a steak with such a depth and complexity of flavor. It's pricey at 65$. Sometimes you just have to "treat yo self." Also got 3oz of... More

My family and I went to another restaurant the night before based on a better rating . 22 Bowen is by far the best restaurant we have been to in Newport and deserves a rating higher than the Mooring. Food was out of this world. Yes, the service is staggered - but that is a good thing. My family and... More

Service was really good. As we had requested, they did put us at a table near a window overlooking the water. However, the water in this case was lots of construction equipment and really no view of actual water, but probably as good as the restaurant could offer. Food was pretty good, not over-the-top amazing. Just very good cuts of... More
