Big Bowl is by far my favorite restaurant. I always get the "choose your own" bar with veggies only and the Spicy Kung Pao with peanuts sauce - a perfect meal. Unfortunately, with Covid, the choose your own option is not available, and it is now the chef's choice. The problem is that it is a premade assortment of veggies and it doesn't taste fresh nor does it taste as it usually does when you choose your own. Too salty, probably because it already comes prebagged. This is what happens when you take out from there - too overdone. I asked the server if I could choose my own and have the chef cook it up. Sorry, they won't do it. I understand that with Covid you probably can't have everything sitting out. But it should be fresh and this time it wasn't. On the bright side, the veggie dumplings were as delicious as they usually are. And the service is always good. But until you can choose your own and have it cooked up fresh, I will be staying away.
felt rushed. Ordered appetizers and they came within about 5 minutes followed 5 minutes later with entrees. We had all taken about 3 sips of our drinks. Didn't like the covid surchage still on the bill.
Food was just average . Tofu in one of the entrees was not firm enough- too soggy . We went early and with hardly any other diners we had to wait a very long time for refills. We sat with our empty plates for a very long time - should have been cleared. Then we continued to wait for the check . There was some kind of training session going on and the trainers voice was very distracting to our experience .
I understand what’s happening to the service industry, but service was slow. She couldn’t help it because she had to do everything. She did her best under the circumstances. Food was fine and her service to our table was good.
Had many servers helping us out and it was confusing
We were celebrating our 30th anniversary , and left very upset because of our server.
We came on a Sunday evening and had a reservation. We sat outside and the server came over fairly quickly to get our drink and appetizer order. Then we didn't see her to take our dinner order for at least 20 minutes. Our appetizer finally came out and we had to flag her down to take our order. Our food came out fairly quickly. Not sure if they are still having issues with getting enough wait staff, a problem with the kitchen. or both. Food was good, but service could certainly be improved. Same thing happened to the people at the table next to us so seemed to be a trend.
Our waiter was very good
The food was delicious
Excellent service and food.
It was great. Please bring back Big Bowl location in Northern Virginia. In Reston or Sterling, VA. We miss Bog Bowl.
Came in for an early dinner. Not very busy. Staff was attentive, food came out very quickly and everything was as expected. Very good.
Poke bowl was excellent and server was friendly but they seemed understaffed. She seemed to lost track of us. Seemed on waitress would be waiting in table close to kitchen and the one outside furthest from the door.
We had two spicy Asian dishes which were both very tasty. Service was good. They were holding a lot of empty tables so spacing was very good.
Was definitely an off night. My husband and I both did stir fry and asked for extra broccoli and I asked for shitake mushrooms. We both got less broccoli than usual and I got white mushrooms, which I specifically asked not to get. Neither of us had any bok chou either, which we both like a lot, so we were looking for it. Husband mentioned that a couple of weeks ago when we ate there his dish was drowning in sauce, so he asked for them to not make it so wet. Instead this time it was virtually tasteless with hardly any sauce. Guess no happy medium. The waiter was great and brought some extra way over steamed mushy broccoli )he tried!) and a bunch of shiitake in a cup, but both were rather tasteless, as they weren’t cooked with the sauce (and hardly any sauce on hubby’s to mix it with). So, as I said, off night. Also, the bartender accidentally spilled a glass of water and ice over the bar and just went and put a caution sign over it. It took like ten minutes of people almost slipping on the ice cubes before someone else got a broom (not a mop) to sweep the ice cubes into a dust pan. Nuts, and what a liability. It was almost funny watching it not get handled. Still a favorite restaurant, just a rough night in the kitchen, I guess.
Ate at 3:30, very dimly lit. I had lettuce wraps and was over seasoned with soy. Just so so. Really couldn’t tell it was chicken seemed more like beef.
Really missed pick your own vegetables, but understand why not. Food still outstanding and feel good about it being healthy.
Decor was dark, dull and generic. Decor used to be Asian inspired with beautiful light fixtures and such.
It used to be more of an experience now just a restaurant with good food that’s easy to use take out- no incentive to go into the restaurant.
Love that they have a gluten free menu. Homemade ginger ale is fantastic.
The food and service are always top notch! You can even customize your food order!
Big Bowl never disappoints; they have put up partitions for COVID-19, and have discontinued ability to choose your stir fry from open trays as before, but there is no change in quality of the food, the menu offerings, the service or the ambience. It takes me 50 minutes to get there from my house, but the drive is always worth it!
We have been gone from the Chicago area for seven years and during our visit this past week we decided to try Big Bowl. It was very disappointing.....the meal was fair at best and not what we had remembered from the last time that we ate here. Although our server was very pleasant he was lax in refilling our water glasses and coming by to ask how our food was and if we needed anything. We were surprised that the restaurant had not been updated in seven years other than the plexiglass partitions between the booths.
Good food, reasonably priced. Wine selection adequate. Dessert selection limited.
Being a holiday( July 4th) they were not staffed enough. We waited almost an hour for our drinks. The Manager came to take our food order. She was very nice and apologized . The patio had one other table. The manager was very nice and took off the appetizers. We love this restaurant and will just assume being a holiday couldn’t get anyone to work.
Great food and atmosphere
Her waiter was not very good did not come over to see how we are doing he was not the one that delivered the food never came over to check on us never gave my husband more water his glass was empty he was like a hit-and-run driver and they weren’t even that busy.
The waiter was amazing! A bit noisy inside but worth the food and drinks!
We chose to eat outdoors since it was a beautiful afternoon. It was a lovely experience and the food is always delicious.
Big Bowl is always a win for us. I do miss the make your own stir fry but understand why it is not yet back. Enjoyed the meal yesterday!!!
Service very slow but I am patient and non complaining post Covid. Have been going to Big bowl for a long time. Very sad that they have removed many of our favorite appetizers from the menu, specifically the chicken satays, spring rolls.
Unfortunately the food it really not good. Gloppy, not well made. Its too bad cuz it is fun place. Drinks are fine.
Father’s Day lunch with the family, food was outstanding and prepared quickly.
One of the main attractions of this restaurant is being able to pick out your own stirfry ingredients. That was not really possible from the menu where I was told some of the ingredients were “prepackaged.” And the pick your own ingredients bar is shut down and even the manager couldn’t give me the slightest indication as to when it would re-open. Very disappointing.
We had a very nice time, table was perfect. Waiter was nice, professional and attentive.
Food we delicious. We all enjoyed our choices.
Food and service always Great !
Music Always blasting too loud !!
Always a perfect choice!!!
Service was awesome but once again the cook does not follow customer needs communication to waiter, it’s on food ticket no scallions but still put in dish. Pretty simple but not followed but did not complain to server since she was the bedt
Great, friendly service and delicious food!
We'll be back!
Great food, good service. Pinch expensive for the quality but reasonable
First time there. Not my liking for food just went because it was my sisters birthday and she wanted to go. Everyone was super friendly and helpful with menu options. The only thing I didn’t like was the only 2 options for kids.
