Dine here while volunteering in NY. Great food. I enjoyed the warm pre-dinner bread. The smoked eggplant was excellent platform for the marinated lamb.

My mom and I didn't realize how late it was and that all restaurant kitchens were just closing when we went out searching for dinner. They let us in, super friendly, and although offered a smaller menu ( I think most of the staff had left) - we had an incredible dinner.
3 appetizers more than fed two hungry girls dinner, and exceeded expectations - so delicious and friendly

Enjoy!

Below average food and waiters that don't know the food they are serving best describes this place.The cherry on the cake is the 20% tip they add to the bill under "service charge".
Unfortunately we went there based on the opinion of the people who took the time to write a review before us and raved about this place !?!?
Did we go to the same place??
This is NYC and there are plenty of great places to eat; save your appetite for another restaurant.

We stumbled upon Smyrna while looking for something a little different. Though it doesn't look like much, it will become a new favorite. We were immediately served warm bread which was tasty. The cucumber salad was amazing. I'm still raving about it 24 hours later. The entrees were also well made and delicious. Can't wait to go back and try more of the menu.


Service was incredible. They were attentive without being pushy or bothersome. Took their time to explain menu items and gave us enough time to decide. They also score points for not rushing us out of there like so many places in the city.

A great meal and even better environment. First class operation.

Turkish cuisine is a rarity for us so it's hard to compare to similar places but Smyrna was very good for us. We got there early because of an early show and were of course seated immediately. Service was quick and attentive. Our waiter was well versed in the menu and could make comments on every dish we asked about, and seemed to be quite evenhanded.

The food itself was tasty and I guess it was authentic. Hard for us to tell. But it was an enjoyable meal with no complaints.
