The food and service is excellent at Ayse Meze! Service is fast, but mostly the food is superb! I went with a large group of women and they did a great job of keeping our drinks full and the food on the table.

Our group ate here, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff encouraged us to share, which made it a lot more fun. The food was excellent! Definitely try the Brussels sprouts.

Wonderfully patient server walked us through wines and menu items as well as helpful suggestions about quantities of small plates.
