Loved the lamb kofte. Crowded but fun outdoor seating. Ate there at least three times for lunch and dinner.

I've loved Cafe Divan since I first came across it in 2007. The food is still pretty tasty and sets a standard for other Turkish venues I visit. The Iskander Kabob is my regular, but I noticed that they don't put that fiery green pepper on it like I'm used to. Also, the service didn't seem to be as good.... More

I went to this place almost six years ago for the first time and at that time it was a terrible experience. I wanted to give another chance, but unfortunately, no change in the interval. Food does not taste well, service is below average, customer appreciation almost does not exist, music and athmosphere below average, prices unnecessarily high. For sure,... More

Looking for a place to have a late lunch, we stumbled upon Cafe Divan. Excellent menu; we couldn't decide what we wanted so ordered a few appetizers and a bottle of wine. The food was great - the eggplant salad is marvelous! Will definitely go back.

This is a good neighborhood place that adds variety to the palette. They offer wonderful fresh branzino, flown in by a friend of the owner. The waiters are friendly, and one makes the best mojito! unexpected.. the regular Turkish offerings make it a wonderful lunch destination, and they offer a few outdoor tables., although we love the corner tip table-...

We happened upon Cafe Divan by while searching for a restaurant that was open and serving breakfast on a Saturday. The service was attentive and the food was excellent. I had the Turkish Breakfast which included Turkish meat and cheese and will definitely be back for a repeat!

I love Cafe Divan and eat there every other month. The food is fresh and delicious. For appetizers, I love the fried zucchini patties and the cacik. I'm a big fan of the Divan mixed grill platter but my wife loves the Doner kebab. On Thursday evenings, they have a great lamb specialty dish. The staff are actually very friendly... More

We went there because my friend wanted to try Turkish cuisine. We ordered some starters (what we call in Turkish "meze") which were really good. They taste always better with Rakı, of course. Then we had a meal which was bigger than we expected and was also delicious. The service was not that good, they were just coming, getting your... More

Lunch was delicious; fresh and tasty. Disappointing that service was indifferent. The food deserves a more enthusiastic presentation and description.
