    It was a pleasure to eat at a Turkish restaurant that used authentic spices and provided vegetables as part of the main course. The owner waited on me and allowed me to take my time and enjoy the view of the Hudson River.

    This restaurant has a great view of the city. The food is excellent. However, the staff did not seem very knowledgeable.

    I came here with the mom and fam for mother's day brunch. Spectacular view but everything else was just okay. Food wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Plus they served my mom a dirty plate. She wasn't too thrilled about that. Waiter and owner apologized though. Overall a good place on the waterfront in Edgewater but not really worth a visit again. Too bad though because this place certainly has potential. Like I said it's a great view but the overall experience was just good and that speaks volume.

    We had a group of 6 people went there for dinner. We ordered multiple appetizer and entrees. The food taste did not impress any of us. The yogurt appetizer looked like its fresh out of a yogurt cup. Most of entrees were made in a way that they rushed cooking everything so that there was no plating and fine taste. Overall, it's below the average level of Turkish good I had before.

    I went last valentines day with my girlfriend and two of her friends. When we got to the place,it was'nt too packed yet and they honored the seat that we wanted which is by the window overlooking the hudson river and of course the beautiful nyc.at first, the servers were really friendly and accomodating but when the place started to get packed, it took an hour for our main dish to come and I don't the servers really coz there's only two of them.suggestion to the owners, two servers is not enough in a restaurant that can seat up to 50people at once especially on a special occasion.

    We have been going to Mavi since it opened, so I feel badly that the first Open Table review is not a good one. It was a Saturday night, and they only had 2 waiters for the whole restaurant. With the expansion you would think that there would be more help, not less. The owner knew and came over as we were paying the check and we told him and he apologized. We love to sit out on the deck, watch the river and also the view of NY. It can't get better than that. We have our favorite dishes: Shepherd's salad with feta, the liver, the zucchini pancakes, the stuffed cabbage and the manti(mini raviolis with yogurt sauce). The entrees are okay, but not as good as the appetizers. I hope the service situation gets cleared up quickly.

    ...and we are trying new restaurants. Mavi's food was good, but, felt that the waiting staff just started. Most of the diners ate outside on the wrap around terrace with lovely views of NYC.

    We went for the first time on July 4th...wanted to view the fireworks and have a nice dinner. I had indicated through Open Table that I wanted outside dining. When we arrived, they originally did not want to honor my request and wanted to seat us inside....which I refused. After a little fuss, they did find a table outside....the tables were not all taken. So...a little hassle to begin which was disturbing. After we got settled, we did enjoy the food....we shared a platter of five Turkish appetizers....very enjoyable. We also shared a grilled shrimp entree...also good. BYOB which is great. The outside is the place to sit when you dine at this restaurant...the view is fabulous.
