Shouldn't Be A Well Kept Secret!

Visited Dervish Grill for the first time, and it will not be the last. The food was exceptional Turkish food, from vegan to meat dishes and the portions generous. We were not rushed and the staff was exceptional, genuinely caring and interested in our evening. We felt as if we were family. The... read more

I thought this place would be really cool inside and I got the feeling that all it needed was cleaned and touched up a bit. Although, this does not mean muuch to me if the food was good. First, my boyfriend ordered an IPA and sent it back because he said it tasted like the tap line was bad, so... More

Felt the vegetarian options were overpriced for the value of food. The lamb was good but the Parmesan and eggplant purée needed more Parmesan. The waitstaff were nice and efficient.

Our family visited the Dervish Grill before strolling through the Tremont ArtWalk. What a nice surprise....very friendly hosts and wonderful food including their fresh fish of the day. Our son loved the hummus and falafel appetizer as well as his gyro. My husband and I enjoyed the fish special. The staff treated us as family. What a warm, cozy place.....we'll... More

I've visited this place quite a few times and the food never disappoints. It's usually a pretty quiet place, so I've never waited for a table. The wait staff is friendly and can easily suggest foods and drinks you're not familiar with. The food has been great every time and it comes in large portions. Having been to Turkey, the... More

Even for an occasional visitor to Cleveland, the Tremont buzz is inescapable. So, while strolling the neighborhood to see what the fuss was about, we peeked into the cozy Dervish Grill and stayed for dinner. It was terrific; the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the portions were generous, and the staff made us feel like honored guests at a... More

I went expecting a bit more finish to the place. We took our daughter and son-in-law from Chicago who enjoy Turkish food. They said it was just like their own Turkish place in Chicago but I was disappointed. The food was good but it was served more like a struggling establishment. The service was good and the price was very... More

My husband and I ate here last week and really enjoyed everything. We had two appetizers, hummus and a sort of Turkish salsa which had peppers and walnuts. Then our entrees arrived. We both selected different kabobs. I put the rest of salsa on my rice, which was just fine without it. We hope to come back.

Well, the place was kind of a disappointment. The staff was great, the place was quaint, but the food was just ok. The stuffed eggplant was decent but the lamb sauté was awful. Lamb was fatty. We tried to eat it but couldn't. It was smothered with a flavorless tomato sauce. It was just plain awful. I'm in Cleveland for... More
