After reading some of the reviews here I didn't know what to expect. The restaurant is not far from our house and my husband and I decided to give it a shot. We were pleasantly surprised. The appetizers seemed a little pricey ($8 for hummus) but when we ordered we saw that it was in fact a huge portion with... More

Family dined here on a Sunday evening. Food was less than expected. Ground lamb was tough. Best fare for the evening was the sampler appetizer. Waitress was only four days experienced.

We have gone to Nazar restaurant many times, the food and service has been great. Not last night. The new wait staff need a lot of training. There is a lot more to waiting tables then taking an order. The food was just OK. Maybe it was a bad night or maybe Nazar has a different manager. Saturday night and... More

We arrived in Williamsburg late on a Sunday. Nazar was close to where we were staying and fit the bill. What a wonderful surprise to actually receive great service, food and good wine after a day on the road. The waiter and I suspect part of the owner/management team was on top of things and could answer all our menu... More

We arrived late Sunday evening for our stay in Williamsburg. With no idea of where to eat and found Nazar on Trip Advisor. We decided it sounded like a place worth trying. We were quiet happy with our choice. The food, atmosphere and service were all quiet good. I'm sure we'd return if we lived in this area. My husband... More

This is the second time we were there. Great humous both times but a little pricey. Great turkish meat balls both times. VERY poor beef kabob. Meat was small cubes and very tough. The "kabob" was not served on a skewer and the side of vegetables was supposed to be part of the skewer. When we told the waiter that... More

We have been to Nazar several times & finally got to take our son & granddaughters there when they visited. The menu is varied with something for everyone & generous portions. The staff make you feel very welcome & the restaurant is comfortable & low keyed.. Planning on taking our next set of visitors there in September.

This is a nice restaurant in a small house that seems to be family-run. I ordered the vegan mixed appetizer sampler plate, which I shared with my husband, and then had a Mediterranean salad (without the feta) for an entree. The food was good and the service was very good.

My first impression of Nazar was what a charmingly decorated dining room! It is clean and simple with lovely touches. Even the view of Jamestown Road seemed charming from our table at the window. We went early for lunch so it was not crowded. There were many dishes on the menu that I wanted to try so it was difficult... More

This restaurant, as noted by other reviewers, is indeed off the beaten track - which adds to its value. We had dinner there on a weeknight recently and really enjoyed it. We had other things to do that evening, so we arrived really early - before 5:30, which led us to be the first in the dining room that evening.... More
