Sometimes I wonder how 5 star reviews are created...trust it could be just an unfortunate service for lunch, which was planned as a Birthday treat for our friend. So, here we were, on a lazy Tuesday, dressed up, and in great spirits. The restaurant was nearly empty (with 3 tables occupied), and the gorgeous September weather dictated to an outside... More

OK, I've reviewed Ayse Meze before and raved. I've taken people there who raved. My wife and I went for dinner in Sept 2016 only to come away mystified, disappointed, and almost angry at how POOR it was. What happened to this great restaurant? When I asked our waitress if they had a new chef, her answer was Yes. Aha!... More

Lots of flavor in the Adana Kabob served on a bed of rice with sauce. Greek salad was basic without kalamata olives. and enough cucumbers but was Ok with vinegar and oil

The food is outstanding. Dishes change with the seasons but the Brussels sprouts and carrot fritters are always in demand. My Turkish friends love it. The braised lamb is a delicious winter option.

Second time I have tried this place and it is the best. Definitely worth going to. Wait staff is very friendly and helpful. First time my husband tried it and loved it as well. Must try the spread sampler and the Brussel sprouts. The pitas are the best.

A different taste out of the ordinary. Ayse is a Middle Eastern place with a touch of jazz. Ambience is subdued and conducive to conversation. Staff is friendly and eager to please. And the food is delightful.

We were visiting friends in Frederick Maryland and wanted to have dinner. They recommended AYSE Meze Lounge. Wonderful restaurant for one person or a large group. Almost everything is small plate. Order several small plates and pass around the table. The flavors are excellent. Our young waiter, was relatively new, but every question he came back with an answer. If... More

My vegan daughter was in heaven when we took her to Ayse (pronounced "eye shay"). Wonderful Mediterranean food, great to share. Friendly servers, great atmosphere.located in Shab Row. Notable dishes -- brussels sprouts, hummus plate, spanakopita. Overall, very enjoyable and affordable place and we love going back!

We dined here on Saturday night and it was amazing. To begin with the restaurant is in a beautiful location. The bar has exposed brick walls, and the dining room looks onto an outdoor courtyard where you can also dine. The service with the hostess, in the bar and in the restaurant were impeccable. Everyone was timely and attentive in... More
