An average Bistro. I think the owner tries and works hard, but how do you run out of wine after being in business for 8 years. I had the octopus dinner, which was a bit overpriced. but quite good. My friend had the lamb shish kabob, ordered rare, to med. rare... the chunks came out well done. The ladies enjoyed... More

Live the experience of the Turkish kitchen. Freshness of food, flavors and colors in your plate. Small restaurant in a Shopping mall. This restaurant will disorient you the time of a meal due to its decoration and due to the variety of the offered dishes. A small marvel to be discovered in Boca Raton. You will not be disappointed.

The owner is the chef, and was our server when we had dinner. She knew every ingredient to protect our celiac friend from eating any "bad" ingredient. We dined on the cold appetizer that we shared, and one of the hot appetizers was the main meal for one of us. It looked almost as good as it tasted. Two shared... More

waitress had bad attitude&arguing with another waiter. had multiple appetizers. grape leaves were bitter-never had bitter ones in my life. other items were somewhat small portions, and only fair tasting. for what you got, i thought the prices were high. not in any hurry to return.

Great food can become lousy food when the wait staff is inattentive and you make reservations that run late in being honored. Might be really good food, but I'll never recommend it or return because people find the service to be disappointing. Recent price increases should drive away more people

Last Saturday night we took some of our family here for dinner. 3 of us ordered the beef kabob one ordered the lamb. The Red Lentil soup served first was rich and had a hint of mint. The bread was warm, crusty and fragrant. The beef kabobs were the most tender. We have had them many times and we are... More

I have been to Efes Bistro many times with my family, and I have never been disappointed. (It is unfair to pass judgment based on one bad experience.) The food is always prepared fresh and on premises!! My favorite dishes are the Atlantic salmon and any of the vegetarian entrees. The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere with several booths, each...

We tried this place for the first time. It is conveniently located in a shopping mall off Glades near Lyons. The place only had a few customers so we almost had it to ourselves. The ambiance was pleasant, with genuine Turkish decor, private booths and large tables, nicely decorated. The staff was attentive and Turkish. We orders the octopus, mixed... More

We went to give this place a try. The place was empty , just our table. I got the feeling I went to the owners home not to a restaurant. They had a little girl who was crying constantly . We tried the lamb kebab, and the eggplant. The meat was tough and chewy, the eggplant was good. The bulgur... More

We went on a Saturday evening; the place was half-full. The waiters were very polite and clarified some of the items on the menu. The complimentary pita bread was never served to us, though the waiter said "your pita bread is coming right up" after he had brought the drinks. Some of the items that we tried like the St....
