Cafe Divan is a well run restaurant with an impressive menu. Our group of five had a total of 10 dishes, including four mains, two desserts and four appetizers. Nothing was left over... all plates were clean as a whistle at the end. The dishes were generous, well prepared and nicely presented by an attentive and charming server.. Noise level... More

Two of us had dinner on a Saturday night. The Turkish waiter was courteous and very attentive. A plate of mixed appetizers was tasty but had relatively few items. Our entrees of stuffed pasta (manti) and lamb chops were excellent. Rice pudding was just right, cool and gently sweet. We were happy with everything and still received an extra round... More

I came here with a large group of friends on a Monday night. They had plenty of space to accommodate us. The decor is clean, modern, and warm. There was a sewer smell however that was a little off-putting. Other than that the atmosphere was nice. Our waiter was nice, but sort of didn't take "no" for an answer. After... More

The staff was extremely attentive. Some of our large party arrived early but were seated. Selection of beers and wines were extensive. The food menu was also large. The waiters were helpful with descriptions of the various mid-eastern dishes. I had a Turkish beer, and chicken shish kabob. Both were very flavorful. The prices were quite reasonable.

We have visited a number of times and have frown to love the restaurant and it's well conceived and prepared Turkish fare. It is undergoing renovations at the moment and while the food is up to its standard, the feeling is cramped or the moment. We still liked it.

The food here is consistently good. I fear I'm in a rut and often order the Yogurtilu Chicken. Nice place to meet a colleague for lunch.

Dined there recently based on many times with good passed dining experience. Not so this time. Huge group in center of the room, short wait staff, took 20 minutes to get water, bread and menus. Dinner arrived looking straight out of a box, quality has slipped badly. Passed on coffee and dessert to get out ASAP. Bill came including other... More

I really enjoyed the food here! This small Turkish restaurant in Georgetown offers delicious mezze and main courses. Service was very good, and I would definitely recommend it!
