“All around great place”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Delicious food, great service, nice decor.

We had a great dinner there this evening. We ordered drinks and the Cazbar Sultan's Platter, which included a selection of appetizers (Mezes) and a generous platter of kebobs, shrimp, chicken, salmon, etc. Everything was delicious. Finally, rice pudding was included and it was wonderful. Garnished with strawberries, dusted with cinnamon, and some swirls of molasses on top.

My Apeartini was delicious as was my husband's yum-yum tini.

Emre, our waiter, was very nice, attentive, and helpful as we were first timers.

“Fun place to eat!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We have gone to eat at Cazbar a few times, and the food is usually quite tasty. Portions are large. This is a great place if you are looking for authentic Middle Eastern food.

“Fantastic Turkish find!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Bought a groupon and had no particular expectations, we were pleasantly surprised how delicious it was. We did go for an early dinner around 4:30pm on a Saturday so definately a down time, we received incredibly personel service from our waitress who explained in detail highlights of the menu and anything you had questions about. Food was very good, I had lamb kebabs and my husband had one of the house specialities a lamb-beef mix type swarma meat. Distinctively turkish food, even with imported turkish soda which was a nice alternative to american soda. Great service and good food, we will definately be back again, curious to see what its like in a busier dinner time with belly dancers.

“Service and food were great”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We went to Cazbar because we had bought a Groupon. Wish I hadn't waited so long to give it a try. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. We started with a few different appetizers and each were great. I particularly enjoyed the Manti which are a meat dumpling served with a yogurt sauce. My wife had one of the lamb dishes and even though I am not a fan, I tried it and it was very good. I had the mixed kebap plate and it was also very good.Our service was fantastic. The server took her time going through the menu, explaining various dishes and we never felt like we were being rushed. She was very attentive the entire time we were there. This is definitely a place we will be back to. Very highly recommend giving it a try. One thing to pay attention to is that their website and their OpenTable restaurant page both say they have valet parking, but it is only available on the weekends. Get there a bit early to allow yourself time to find metered parking on the street. The best part is that it is free after 6 p.m.
