Very cute neighborhood Turkish café. It's a busy place on a Saturday night. My boyfriend & I were lucky & were able to squeak in around 7pm. The service was fantastic and everything we ate was very good. The bread and 'dip', a yummy, creamy, tangy carrot based concoction was delish. We had two appetizers: the grilled calamari and the...

This is one of my new favorite place to eat when I visit my sister in Chicago. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is excellent! To start we had the patlican salatisi - I recommend it, it was excellent. My sister had the chicken kabob which was very good and I had the Chicken Lemo which was DELICIOUS.... More

Chicago's population is composed of many different and diverse ethnic groups, making it one of the most culturally diverse cities across the nation. You don't really need to leave the city in order to get a taste of a different culture. What's a better way to experience a culture than by eating its delicious, unique, and maybe even outrageous, cuisine?... More

We love going to Turquoise with our friends and introducing it to people that haven't been there previously. The food is always good, the service is great, it is not expensive and if you ask them for their wine specials they have 20$ bottles of decent wine! I highly recommend it if you haven't been there you will not be... More

Visited the turquoise the last Friday in August, 2014. What a pleasant surprise. Eat inside or outside, both are nice, but on a good night, outside is best. Our table of 4 shared a late night dinner preceded by calamari as an appetizer. All ordered the 10 ounce filet mignon, one of the best deals in all of Chicago. The... More

Just discovered this place and now a new favorite-small but charming restaurant with out door seating and full bar. We were celebrating family event and for modest corkage fee they graciously served the champagne we brought. Service was excellent and food delicious. Eager to return!

Having just arrived home from a wonderful trip to Istanbul, Turkey and some surrounding countries, we were eager to have another taste of the food from that area of the world. We chose Turquoise Cafe out of the blue based on reviews and went last night. What a treat! We sat outside and had a great evening with another couple.... More

My daughter and I shared two appetizers (caprese and zucchini pancakes, both delicious) and a single entree (one of the kebaps, also delicious) and were STUFFED. Well prepared, good flavors, and nicely plated. Only problem was our particular waitress, who seemed to be having a cranky evening, although all the other servers were extremely friendly.
