My husband and I visited here on a whim and only after reading a few reviews on another site. We had the chef's tasting menu and it was one of the best meals we have EVER had. From a delicious shepherd's salad to a chicken kabob atop of a zucchini fritter to a scallop and octopus plate to a perfectly... More

Very good lamb dishes, and good variety including one of my favorite fish (west coast is usually only place I find Branzino). Service was quite good - we ordered 4 initial small plates and then ordered another 4 - only took about 5 minutes for these to come up. I would definitely go back

My colleague and I were in town for a conference and popped over to Ezme on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. This was the perfect spot on a cold Sunday night. I cannot comment about how authentic the food is, but I can say what we ate was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy, they offered a lovely selection of... More

My wife and I had high hopes for this restaurant for Valentines. We usually skip any restaurant for these types of holidays because the food is almost always below par and expensive. Well, Ezme only reinforced our bias. Note that we go to Turkey once an year and are very familiar with Turkish cuisine. This was WAY off. Glad someone... More

A date night made beautiful by Turkish tapas and ending with kunefe for dessert. Now that is what I call a perfect evening. All items we ordered were great. My "midnight" cocktail was delicious and the carafe of Malbec we shared paired perfectly with most of the food. You cannot go wrong with any item on the menu. The hummus... More

This is the real deal run by real Turks.delicious lamb dishes, sigara borek, eggplant dishes.Yum...a tasting menu takes you through the wonderfulness of Turkish cuisine but watch how the bills add up.We were careful and it still added up to 120 bucks.Wines are deliciously well chosen.We will return.

I've had Turkish food before but this "small plate" concept is fantastic. The food was outstanding. Many familiar and also interesting twists of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare. The staff was extremely helpful in suggesting items and everything we tried was fabulous.

We came here with a Turkish friend that loves this restaurant. The decor is beautiful and the food is delicious. We had octopus, hummus and fried liver with onion (Arnavut Ciğeri). Everything was terrific, very yummy. I highly recommend the Arnavut Ciğeri, it's a very interesting mix of flavors and textures. The staff is nice, except a lady that speaks... More

Ezme is located right on my corner, so I have been here several times. I love the price-fixed 3 course lunches, and for dinner it is fun to share tapas-sized portions with a group of friends. On my latest visit with 5 people, we each ordered our own delicious salads, and then shared a variety of shrimp, lamb, chicken and... More

Small, comfortable spot. Nice wine list. Very innovative menu. The selection and quality was very impressive. Service was good but spotty. Great place and worthy of multiple trips.
