Excellent. had a large group and we had a semi-quiet table on the 3rd floor. Perfect for catching up with old friends. Food was great!

Plenty of new food to try
Plenty of new food to try (if you're unfamiliar with Turkish cuisine). Good for groups too as they have several tasting menus. Service was excellent and the food came out very quickly. Definitely going back to this place.

Low-key and Wonderful
We had a wonderful brunch at this low-keyed restaurant. The food was fresh and appealing. I loved the menu which had plenty of choices for both meat eaters and vegetarians.

With a party of just two for the evening, this was a great restaurant to find a seat on a Friday night without waiting or needing a reservation. The waiter was very attentive and friendly and the food was fantastic!

Had a nice time overall with a group of friends. If you have a large group, they bring you to the top floor which was pretty low-lit, and a bit to dark compared to the nice light we could see outdoors. The service was extremely slow to get the food, and for 15 people, it took 3 hours to get to dessert! The food is absolutely delicious which makes up for any lack of energetic or liveliness.

We were there for brunch - the french toast was fantastic. Eggs were a little overcooked.
Noise level was pretty low, but this was at noon on a Sunday. I'm sure it's a totally different place at night.

I have only recently come to the realization that I love Mediterranean food. I took my boyfriend here for dinner on one of his visits to DC because he loves Mediterranean. I am always a little skeptical of more adventurous foods but I have to say, Meze was a great choice! Their red pepper hummus is so delicious and they have these meat balls made with lamb and beef that are to die for! We really enjoyed the outdoor seating, even though it was a more chilly night. They had a heater outside that made the cold bearable. The service was great too; our waiter was very attentive and nice. I will definitely be going back.

great selection of food, for both meat lovers and veggie lovers. there were 5 of us and we just ordered 2 dishes for ourselves, but shared if anyone wanted a taste. very flavorful

Wonderful little restaurant!
This was my third time hosting my birthday party at Meze and, as usual, they did not disappoint. They accommodated my group of 14 people with ease and were very patient as people trickled in. The servers were great and our host checked in with us frequently to make sure we were having a good time. We ordered from the fixed price menu and were not disappointed. The majority of the dishes were very delicious - I actually preferred the vegetarian options to the meat ones. At the end of the evening, the host presented me with a special chocolate-covered, cream-filled pastry that made the perfect end to a wonderful meal. Whether you're looking to go as a group, a couple, or just yourself, I will always recommend Meze.

Meze's is a great restaurant nestled in Adams Morgan. The tapas were very good and the drinks were outstanding. It is a great place to mingle with friends on a weekend. Meze's is small, so large groups are somewhat cramped; but my time at Meze's was great. I will surely visit again.

Food was amazing! Servers were pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We went there for a Girl's Niht and had a great experience.

If you are new to the Turkish cuisine, this is a great place for a first-time experience.
If you are familiar with it, this is the best place to satisfy your cravings, as was the case for me.
Adana kebap and gavur dagi are two dishes that you must have here.
Also, make sure to end your feast with the delicious Kunefe.

Nice staff, good food, hip location
Quiet at 5pm prior to the rush. Had a nice seat in the shade but outside in the thick of the activity in Adams Morgan. Waiters were helpful and made great suggestions. Great apps (mezes = tapas) and good Mojitos. Had discounted 3 types of dips (chicken, red pepper, and a spicy salsa)... all very tasty. Picked 6 mezes (lamb/beef meetballs, Kebabs chicken & Lamb, Calamari, to name a few. Staff recommended Kunef - unique dessert that all 5 of us enjoyed and had never had before.
I see they have happy hour on weekdays which would make this even better as they have $4 plates and half price Mojitos.
Like that they clearly indicate Gluten free items as we have a friend who struggles to find good restaurants.

Meze Meal with Friends
Attentive service, wide ranging menu selections, and vibrant outdoor setting. Perfect to entertain friends. Like your own place with way better food! Feels like I am on the Bosporus without the jet lag. So grateful I can stroll to Meze in Five minutes from home.

Excellent service and food
Our server was wonderful and gave us excellent recommendations on what to order. He was close to the food's origins and thus was very knowledgeable about it. It was much appreciated. The roasted pepper dipping sauce was fabulous. I highly recommend the lentil cakes as well. The lamb "pops" and grilled chicken kebabs were delectable; the kids loved the latter much.

Great tasting menu!
Our group ordered the tasting menu (which is offered for groups of 6 or more)
for $35 you get ELEVEN dishes tapas style or for $30 you can go with NINE dishes.
This is the way to go if you are a group. The dishes come out family style and it's great for sharing!
Also worth mentioning was our wonderful server SEFA!!
We used to live in AdMo and come to Meze quite often, service is always great but Sefa went over and beyond to make sure our rather handful group had a great time!
Thank You Meze and Sefa, see you guys soon!

Eleven delightful bites
We loved the restaurant and dining experience. There were six of us and we decided on the tasting menu, as it was a choice that took no effort on our part. The food started to flow, each bite was outstanding and there were 11 flavors of mojitos!!

Good food and ambiance
Meze does never disappoints. They maintain a certain quality in their food and service. It's a good place if you would like to taste some Turkish tapas. Sigara Borek is excellent.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
This was our first time experiencing this restaurant & the food, the service, the ambience made us feel as though we were royalty. LOL! We sat on the second level at a secluded little corner for two. We ordered the tasting menu & EVERYTHING was SUPERB!! Our glasses never got empty, the servers checked on us periodically & everything was done with a smile. I know that my babe enjoyed it because he STAYED talking about this place. We will definitely be back. Thank you Meze!!
