Skip the burger, total waste of money and insulting. Super greasy, the patty was very compressed and not a great texture if meat or flavor. Fries were ok, service was slow and subpar for the price point, you have to ask to be serviced and wait and wait and wait. If you want a burger go to fudruckers next door.

We try and go out with friends every other weekend. And pick a new restaurant each time. Cafe Izmir was our choice this past weekend. We got reservations since we didn't know how busy they would be the weekend we selected them. Our group is a fun group, and you would consider a couple of individuals in the group as... More

I'm at the Cafe Izmir at the airport and ordered a chicken bowl. We got plain boiled rice with 4 piece of chicken breast for $14 US. This is a rip off. The waitress was nice enough to switch our rice for salad which was better and refreshing. Feel it's. Eye expensive and food mediocre.

The food here is very good. It has a patio that is covered and the inside is small but very comfortable. Service was good. Great for a group and sharing. That way you get to get a taste of a variety of items. Would defintiely go back.

I LOVE this restaurant! We've been going there for over 12 years now. The food is fabulous and the service is fantastic. Even our boys that are 9 and 12 love going there. It always feels like we've been welcomed home when we go there! ❤

Inadequate service. Asked for plates with the meal and she only brought one. Had to ask for a second one. The salad was incomplete without feta and olives and stated in menu. Not impressed.

Every chance I get I go here. I was taken here for the first time about 12.5 years ago. Since then anyone that comes to town to visit me gets to go here to eat too. Not a single person has not liked it. We drive from Arlington out to Dallas any chance we get to eat here. We bring... More

This restaurant is very close to my daughter's home in Dallas. She goes there several times a week. We found ourselves in Dallas on business, and she wanted us to try it. We met her there and the staff all knew her and treated us like family. They were very accommodating. The menu is fairly extensive. My wife had the... More

This is one of favorite places for Middle Eastern food. The food is consistently top notch. Service is friendly and warm. The hummus is the best in Dallas ($5.95). The babaganoush is excellent also ($5.95). After those we like the falafel platter, crunchy on outside, soft on the inside ($15.95). Falafels have some nice kick from hidden spices and heat....

Popped in for a coffee, ended up eating too. Excellent pitta and hummus and a couple of simple and extraordinary tasting tapas. Good service. Great for lunch.

Cafe Izmir is a small, neighborhood restaurant located on Lower Greenville where guests can enjoy home-cooked Mediterranean tapas. Our concept is simple; fresh, healthy food prepared daily and available seven days a week. Mama Nazy"s old world recipes capture the essence of Greek, Turkish, Lebanese and Persian cuisine. Have a seat in the main dining room or enclosed patio; Cafe Izmir provides an upscale, casual environment that highlights the sights and aromas of the Iranian culture. Voted Best Hummus in Dallas for several years, you have to come try it for yourself!
