We were a party of 10 with two in our party who had special dietary considerations. The waitress didn't miss a beat with our tasting menu as each course came out she, and the kitchen made adjustments to meet their needs. The food was very...More

Not sure where to go in a city like Washington DC, we picked this place because of the location: Dupont Circle. Lovely intimate setting. Small plates of lamb, chicken, dolmas, hummus and a delightful greens salad with a mint dressing. Just right for both vegetarian...More

We actually ate here only because the restaurant we wanted was booked - and this was a fantastic choice. I am thrilled we couldn't get into the sushi place we wanted (staff was rude!) because this was even better than we could have hoped for.

Ezme is a cozy space offering tasty Turkish food. A dessert featuring shredded wheat, cheese and pommegrate molasses was especially tasty (can't remember the name).

Attractive setting. Lively, but not too loud. Nice mix of people. Very good and reasonably priced $35 11-plate Turkish tasting menu. Extensive wine list with interesting Turkish flights, particularly whites. Friendly service. Close to DuPont Circle and Palomar and other hotels.

My group of 5 friends had the pleasure of eating outside at Ezme during a wonderful warm spell a couple weeks ago in February. I never even walked inside so can't comment on the interior space. We really enjoyed sharing all the different plates. The...More

I ate here with my wife and daughter. The menu is basically small plates. The food was very good. They have a nice wine list, and we tried two samplers of three pours so we could try some Turkish wines and another international mix. The...More
