Food was good, presentation was good also. Nice outside seating area. They have this type of fountain that makes a very calming sound. Definitely would come back. My server was viviana, very sweet girl and attentive.

It started off great with attentive service and the food arrived within 35minutes. Food was presented well but did not have much flavor. The waiter disappeared and the other said maybe he was no break? No water or drink refills. A bit overpriced as others have mentioned and I come from Brooklyn where we get real Mediterranean favors for half... More

I would definitely go again but for a special occasion because it is overpriced but worth it. The food was delicious. For appetizer you should try the pita bread with hummus. Amazing

The waiters seemed to be tired and lacked enthusiasm.Well presented nd food tasted good.Their decor is nice.The food was very good but much overpriced!!! Conclusion: if you love Turkish food and $'s are not an issue, you will certainly be satisfied!!!.

The owner / chief is Turkish. it seemed like many of the customers were white collar and regulars. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food. a beer was only $3,50.. I had a good dinner for under... More

Went to dinner here with my Turkish friend - the food was great (and got the thumbs up from someone who knows authentic Turkish food) and the staff was super friendly. Nice change from fried food in other restaurants!
