“Great for the view”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have visited in late January, with a friend, the first time we went which was a Sunday it was empty, we got a nice table, and ordered the meze plate, which a like other restaurants but a little better quality, still didnt justify the price of it, I had chicken oriental, which I ve had around the world many times however this dish was dry, couldnt taste the ginger at all, my friend had pumpkin risotto, which was good, with 2 glasses of wine the bill came to 100euros which was outrages.

I noticed that they also had sushi so we decided to go a second time, this time it was on a Wednesday night, it was packed we were shown to our table which we didnt like so we asked them to change it, and they immidiately did,.

This time we ordered sushi, which was good, but not anything special;

As for the waiters service, he was professional, definately not friendly, and we thought he was trying to rush us, the minute we took our last bite, the plate was gone, , and I noticed that the wiater was trying to rush us off, , again for a 100euros meal, and its supposed to be fine dining, I thought that was rude, and later realized that he got off early and we paid to someone else.

This place has a beautifull view, and it has nice decor, however I felt uncomfortable, because unless you spoke perfect Turkish you were brushed off.

The food is good, but definately doesnt justify their rates especially since there are so many good restuarant and fine dinning at a much less prices.

-p.s. If we had good service friendly and felt welcome becuase the view was amazing I would of

con sidered going back.

“The view...”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The view and romantic atmosphere are definitely worth it!
Food was very good, had a few appetizers and some really great and fresh sushi.
The wine list had a better selection than we had seen elsewhere in Istanbul.
At the prices I would expect a bit more attentive wait staff.

“Elegant and nice place to have dinner!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Vogue is one of my favorite restaurants in Istanbul. View of Bosphorus is very nice. You can have your drink at the bar while enjoying this amazing view. Then you can try one of the delicious meals in the menu. Meats are nice and worth to try. The ambiance is elegant and relaxing.

“Loved the View and the Food”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Has an business dinner in Vogue on last trip to Istanbul. Was forst time to visit Vogue and it was wonderful. The Restaurant is located on the top floor of the BJK Plazza and has a spectacular view of the Bosphorus. Design is modern classic and is warm and comfortable. We sat inside as it was winter but outdoor seating is available for the summer months. Our table was near the corner window so we had a spectacular view towards the south and East across the Bosphorus. Great selection of Food and wine are available. I had a mixture of Sushi starter and Turkish dish for main course. All were of excellent quality. Great choice for a special dinner either private or Business.

“A very good choice”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

An amazing place, amazing view, very nice service, very good food. What else can i say! Particularly like the atmosphere and the decoration. Some might find it a bit too sophisticated but it is definitely a beautiful place. We didn't try the sushis but we had an excellent dinner with turkish (white) wine!
