Made reservations online to visit on a saturday evening after reading the wonderful reviews on TA. They have specific seating times. We arrived an hour before the reserved time, so we waited by the hotel lobby (restaurant is on the top floor of the Orient Express hotel). We were allowed to use their wifi as we waited. Once upstairs we were seated right by the window, were we had a nice view of the Bosphorous bridge with the light show. Terrace view must be great in the summer. Food was outstanding. You could tell the ingredients were really fresh. My lamb was nicely cooked, very tender and flavorful. We had the sampler for dessert. It was not great but it was pricey, so maybe skip dessert if you can.
