We are great fans of Turkish food. We have traveled in Turkey quite a bit and are long-time fans of the wonderful Kazan in McLean. Visiting the Phillips Collection recently we chanced on Ezme and felt it was one of the best Turkish meals we have ever had. The menu is filled with small plates, though these servings are more...

Went there for a drink and we had very good wine. Service was quite friendly and it was easy to talk (not the usual background noise)

This place is divine: the eggplant appetizer melts in your mouth but the lamb kabob was unbelievably tender and high quality - everything about this place seemed to show attention to detail and care in the preparation of the meal, its presentation, and waitstaff.

I was in DC for a conference. My husband found Ezme on Yelp. I am so glad he found it. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. The food was delicious and the service was really good too. I wish I lived closer so I could go back there soon.

Very good Turkish food in a casual atmosphere. We had Hummus, Kofte (beef and lamb meatballs), Erikli Sis Kebab (grilled lamb and plum) and Tavuk Kebab (grilled chicken breast) with a good bottle of Bogazkere red wine to share. Everything was tasty and well prepared. This was more than enough food for two.

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.
