Great Meal options. ordering and sharing makes the meal fun. Being vegan and having a member of the family with Celiac always makes going out to eat challenging. Ayse has plenty of options to not leave anyone out.

Two couples sharing four different menu items. All dishes prepared very well and tasty. Provided us an opportunity to enjoy the various flavors of the three cuisines. Portions were somewhat small but worth the price.

OK, so we went to Ayse Meze on the recommendation of some friends and the first thing they mentioned (other than the fact that it's "like a Mediterranean tapas place") were the Brussels Sprouts. When the server came to our table, she mentioned them, too. Ugh. I HATE THEM. But the description sounded interesting and my wife likes them so... More

We met during our lunch hour and 2.5 hours later the four of us left. The food was good, but the timing and service needs some attention. Apps and entrees came at different times - meaning one person would get their food, and the rest would wait, and wait, and wait. Then 2 of us got our apps, and the... More

First and formost the food is delicious, with a Mediterranean flair, great variety, small plates or not. Atmosphere lively and fun but not hokey.

We really liked the restaurant! Our first time in Frederick. Came because it was the #1 choice on Trip Advisor and the reviews were all so good. For the most part, we were not disappointed. Tim, our server, was great - helpful, friendly. He helped us make selections of small plates. We had the flaming cheese (saganaki) and it was... More

Indefinitely need to go again and try more on the menu. The sampler sauces platter is great. Had one of the meat dishes with figs and pita bread. Wish I had room for dessert.
