This was my first taste of Turkish food and I really enjoyed. The restaurant interior is attractive and there are some small, high tables for outside seating. The service was excellent. I enjoyed all of the food and I enjoyed two Turkish wines. I found this a very good experience and I'd go here again if I had the opportunity.

Food was alright. Very friendly service but the meal wasn't anything special. With so many options around here (Ankara and Agora), it's very unlikely that I will go back.

Ezme is a great place to eat a fun meal. The extensive menu has many items that are great to share. A good casual dining experience.

We were looking for a quiet restaurant around Dupont Circle--something non-Italian! And we were very happy to discover Ezme. It's small, quiet and cozy with a delightful selection of small plates of Turkish food--you can order as many as you'd like and we did, feeling sated but not overly stuffed. Each dish seemed to be better than the next from... More

Good bye dinner for one of my friends and she picked the place, we were a little late because of rain and they kept our reservation, food is great! Tasty, traditional, medium portions (small if you're used to US portions). Ambiance is cozy and service is good. Had a great time with good food and friends

I am giving this place 5 stars because it's both affordable and delicious. The server made wonderful recommendations (our first time at this restaurant). The Turkish wine sampler was delicious and a great way to find a glass to have with my meal. The lamb dish (kebab) was out of this world. Poached pear dessert - simple and light. We... More

Great tapas restaurant on P street near DuPont Circle. I took the server's suggestions for the dishes I ordered.....the grilled fillet of Bronzino was my fave. I also had the grilled lamb medallions with plums (also yummy) and rice pudding for dessert.

Turkish food is fresh and delicious but Turkish restaurants are hard to find--even in urban areas. Ezme offers a wide selection of small plates, allowing diners to sample a full range of this unusual and delicious cuisine.
