NOOOOOOOO, IT'S CLOSED!!!

Why do some of the best close down!?! There is a new place in the location named "Istanbul" that boosts "Mediterranean" cuisine. I will miss the quiet and friendly Nazar that served some great food with big portions!

We were looking forward to trying some Mediterranean fare on our recent trip. We read the reviews on trip advisor and Nazar seemed like a good choice. I noticed that the last trip advisor review was dated May which I thought was a little unusual since it is now mid June. We drove to the restaurant and found the parking... More

Very friendly and personable staff. Food was super, with generous portions. Our party ordered a variety of foods, all of which were delicious. Absolutely loved it!

I was told by the wait staff that Nazar has closed it's doors! How very disappointing! My wife and I went at least twice a month. Always received great service and food.

We stopped at this roadside restaurant and were delighted in every way. We had a lovely fresh salad with home-made dressing and then feasted on lamb shishkebabs served with rice and pitta bread. The shishkebabs had a yoghurt dressing on one and a tomato sauce on the other; delicious. Our server was brilliant; a young woman who could describe each... More

This Greek restaurant is charming and the food is out of this world. From the homemade salad dressing to the fresh flatbread to the savory chicken kebab - it was perfection. You also get a lot of food for what you pay and the wait staff is incredibly friendly. Our waitress gave us free baklava and a discount for our... More

Such a hidden gem! Amazing Turkish food! We were visiting Williamsburg and just stopped by this restaurant on our way back to the hotel. I must say we were so impressed by the food, it was so fresh and delicious! From the lentil soup, appetizers and main platter everything it was so great! And the service, too! Vassy went above...

I like lamb in any form, and this restaurant, which features dishes from the eastern Mediterranean, has several lamb items on the menu.

First off I need to apologize to Miteen, the owner of Nazar, as well as Ardak, our waiter for not writing this review months ago, back in Oct, shortly after our visit. I have no excuses other than to say that sometimes life gets in the way. Please forgive me. Secondly, I am not a huge Restaurant Reviewer. It's just... More

What a wonderful treat to find this gem of place while visiting my family. As the only vegetarian in my family, I am always looking for places I can enjoy with them. The food is fresh and perfectly spiced so that each mouthful is a delight. The zucchini pancakes are delicious, even the meat eaters liked them. The kitchen is... More
