We have always enjoyed the Anatolia Cafe for its unique flavor and Turkish atmosphere. Our lunch time visit, however, proved a bit disapointing. How is it a Turkish restaurant when it does not have doner kebab? Although the upper level staff seems to be Turkish it would be nice if the greeter and servers were also. They always seem to...

Anatolia Cafe' represents the best Turkish food I have eaten across the US. I am from Turkey, and I would highly recommend it.

Our most recent dinner at Anatolia fell on a beautiful, warm Fall evening, and I was disappointed that we couldn't get a table at the bustling outdoor street patio. Nevertheless, my disappointment quickly waned as we were seated inside the high-ceilinged main dining room with its hanging Turkish rugs and authentically Turkish decor. I had forgotten that there's something about... More

I have eaten at Anatolia Cafe 3 times this summer and it has been consistently good. The staff are courteous and accommodating, the food is good, and the ambiance is very Turkish and conducive a good time. My only complaint is that the pita bread is not warmed up at the time it is served. I do like the fact... More

We went with another couple on a busy Friday night. We were seated promptly and the service throughout the night was fast,friendly, and accurate. The small mixed appetizer plate will give 4 people just a taste each of spicy beans, pickled carrot, baba ganoush, grape leaves, and hummus, but if you are into these, go for the large serving. The... More

Delicious, fast service and reasonable prices. Great appetizer platter and mixed grili entrée. Service was good until it came time to bring the check.

A group of 8 friends enjoyed an enjoyable dinner. We were seated promptly after arriving and had a server who was friendly and humorous and was well versed in the menu. Not being a big fan of lamb, I found a number of dishes that caught my eye. I settled on grilled shrimp, rice, and vegetables. It was obvious that... More
