Glad to see that one of my favorite places for dining - has reopened in Istanbul Grill space (formerly Hotz Cafe in steelmaking days). The decor is still beautiful and inviting, especially during summer weather. The menu is very much the same. I would ask new owners to refine spice combinations to replicate the subtlety of dishes as presented under Istanbul cook - he was a gem. Also, the door to patio slams too hard and is very disruptive to the tables in the bar area. Otherwise, I wish the new owners well and thank them for bringing healthy Turkish cuisine back to Tremont. Buy a bottle of wine and order plates to share. Perfect way to spend a beautiful summery night in CLE.

The food is very good, little expensive but authentic. M favorite is baklava, very moist and just melting in your mouth. 4 small pieces cost almost $10 but it is really delicious.

Grill Istanbul's atmosphere is perfect--it transports you to another land. The stafff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food fresh, delicious and plentiful. Popular prices helped us enjoy the dinner even more especially with the recommended Turkish wine. Though we're east siders we will definitely be back--aftrall it's a quick ride to Tremont.
