Nice Turkish place in BaltimoreThis was a nice find on Open Table; quiet place with great food and friendly hosts. Parking on North Charles Street may be a little difficult, but if one is willing to take a short walk, the side streets offer good parking spots. Valet parking is also available for $5. Cazbar also hosts authentic belly-dancing performances on the weekend evenings.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBaba Ganoush and Belly Dancing!Cazbar is a great find in Baltimore! The menu features great Turkish food, interesting specialty cocktails, and an enjoyable belly dancing show!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTurkish in BaltimoreBooked for a pre-show dinner, so we were there fairly early; it was not crowded but more people were coming in as we left. Interesting decor retains charm of old building with modern urban updates. Attentive service: efficient without being obtrusive; quick and accommodating of our requests. Extensive and inviting menu - lots to chose from, but not overwhelming with clear explanations of dishes. Several mix plates to chose from; some good values for larger groups. All food ordered was very good. Short but nice wine/beer list - several Turkish selections, as well as quality US and international.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceOur group of 4 had a very memorable time at Cazbar. The food was excellent. We each had different menu items and all three were very good.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Turkish food in Baltimore/D.C.Outstanding restaurant for Turkish food. We had no idea Baltimore could have such good cuisine from an exotic location. My wife and I love this place and have become frequent visitors. The place is kid friendly, although it is a fairly quiet place and loud children will definitely stand out/draw unwanted attention. The food and the service is both outstanding. The drink of choice is a house cocktail that is blue and has a name I can't recall or pronounce but it tastes like blue koolaide and is absolutely awesome. The place isn't very large so don't expect tons of room with large open tables, but there is definitely enough room for most.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great ambience. We keep going back and will continue to do so.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an experience thatAlways an experience that transports you to different time and place for the evening! The food is delicious, the hookah has never been harsh for me and the dancers are always talented and beautiful! I'm always looking for an excuse to come here!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWide range of options on theWide range of options on the menu including many vegetarian entrees. Knowledgeable staff and consistently excellent service.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceservice was excellent, maybe because there weren't many patrons for dinner Sunday early evening. The only catch is parking, if you are familiar with Bmore, Charles St, 300 Blocks is not many places to park. The advertised valet parking - not on Sundays - found that out after we got there, couple trips around the area and finally found a place about two blocks away.Food is good and service was good, so in all, with the parking problem and such, we still enjoyed our dinner. We will go back and try the mixed grill... but it was a good way to end a weekend after the O's games, yes, they lost.. oh well.. is early on the season.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff never ceases toThe staff never ceases to amaze us with their attentiveness and the food is great value!

The belly dancers were fenomial. The food was great. The hookah was nice. Everything overall was great3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites!The service at this place is one of the best. Very attentive, helpful and food is timed well. We love the food and the flavors. I've been here 3 times and have gotten delivery and carry out multiple times as well. Never disappointed.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had to leave just as theWe had to leave just as the belly dancer was starting, but even without that added attraction Cazbar (or Jazbar, as it's now mysteriously called) has many things going for it: Good food, well presented, attentive service and a charming decor. The two of us thoroughly enjoyed the spicy lentil soup (the pumpkin soup was also flavorful, but a little sweet to our taste), and feasted our taste buds (and stilled our appetites) with two cold (baba ghanoush and Imam Bayildi) and two hot (sauteed mushrooms and sauteed shrimp with tomatoes and feta), and couldn't leave without at least taking the Kadayif dessert with us -- modestly sized but scrumptious! Definitely worth repeating, with more time!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't pass Cazbar by...This was our second visit to Cazbar and once again, everything was very good. For appetizers, we had the Manti, Sigara Borek, and the Yogurtlu Patlican. Take a look at the menu for descriptions of each. My favorite is the Manti. You can also get this dish as an entree.
For dinner, one of us had the lamb shish kebap, one had the beef shish kebap, and I had the mixed grill. Each entree comes with rice and a very good salad.
In addition to the food being very good, the service was fantastic as well. Very attentive, never in the way and very polite. If you need them to, they will go through the entire menu and explain everything. You never have to feel rushed when you go here.
The prices are also very reasonable.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMissing My LambchopsLove this place. After I had been salivating for the awesome lambchops all week I absentmindedly left my doggie-bag sitting on the table. I am still angry with myself.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
