Second time back, and it's a must-eat any time we visit the area. Really excellent service, with the warmest of welcomes when you enter the door. We learned to bring our own wine, and we are always cheerfully provided glasses (don't worry about what kind of glasses) and an opener. Twice we had the cold platter, and enjoyed all the... More

Enjoyed it throughly. The owners have bought a part of Turkey in their hearts which reflects in the food and hospitality

Great food at great prices. Better than other "chain" mediterranean restaurantes in the area, and with more generous servings.

My husband and I have taken family members (teens to seniors) here several times. The food has been consistently delicious. Their bread is unique and so very good. The staff are attentive and have created a warm and friendly atmosphere.

I lived in Turkey for 18 months from 2013-2014, so I know good Turkish food when I taste it (I taught English in Bursa for 10 months and then lived in Istanbul for a while). The food at Bosphorus is incredibly authentic and about as good as I ate at my favorite restaurants in Turkey. This is really an amazing... More

Wrote a review late last year and another visit certified this should be 5 stars. They weren't busy and got excellent service from a very experienced and personable waiter. The Turkish pizza is really good. Their appetizer flaky with feta cheese filling is great and their baklava is to die for. Also try the Turkish Tea or Coffee. The excellence... More

Marvelous Mediterranean food. The appetizer platter is especially good. And you can bring your own bottle.
