I love this place - staff are so friendly and the food is wonderful. They have a great selection of hot and cold mezze- the acili ezme, the sauteed mushrooms, and the sprimp, tomato and feta are some of my favorites. I often make a meal of the mezze and do not order an entree. I don"t eat meat, but... More

We had a very good dinner here. We had a menu and so we tried several dishes. The service is friendly and they explain you the dishes they have. Anyway, the restaurant is quite expensive.

Restaurant is small and conveniently located- it seems to be open all the time. The menu has a wide selection. However, I was disappointed that most of hot meze (appetizers) are not freshly prepared - they appear to be refrigerated and re-heated. For example, we tried cigar borek - it was dry and hard with filo crumbling, falafel meze was... More

I had dinner last week at this restaurant. We were two, ordered several meze (cold and warm). The Iskender kebab was delicious (huge portion), we split it which was an excellent idea. With 4 meze, a split kebab and a split dessert. We had more food than necessary and a very good meal for a good value (they also have... More

Try the walnut pate! Very good, and a new taste for me. Reviews must be at least 50 characters. Reviews must be at least 50 characters.

we went with some friends who chose the Cazbar. we had never had Turkish food but found plenty of excellent options to try. The food was very good and we can't wait to go back. The only issue we had was trying to find parking but the food and service were fantastic.

We tried Cazbar for the first time and really enjoyed the mezze, actually much more than the entrees. We started with the mixed mezze plate and it was all fantastic- great hummus, crispy bread, eggplant dishes and yogurt dips. For our meal, I had the manti-little pork dumplings in a yogurt sauce and the fish was both heavy and a... More

Five of us went for dinner. We started with appetizers for the table: Sarma, Imam Bayildi, Hummus, Baba Ghanoush and Lahmacun. These were so great we kept ordering appetizers and wine and never got to a main course. Service was attentive. Everyone loved the food, even those not too familiar with Turkish style food. Can't wait to go back!

We wanted something a little different on this trip so after reading other reviews we thought to give this a try. We were not disappointed! Lovely atmosphere, knowledgable attentive waitress and exceptionally good quality food made this a wonderful experience. First time to a Turkish restaurant we went with a small sampler sultans platter. Was more than sufficient for the... More

This was a great meal with great service. We ordered the "Tour of Cazbar" which includes a platter of various spreads (lots of eggplant, yogurt, beets, spices) and each was absolutely delicious. There was one in particular, the "sour eggplant" that was very smoky, tart and so delicious. This was followed by the "Sultan's platter" which featured various meats, rice,... More
