- Ok serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/7/2014Food & overall restaurant was good, except that wait staff wasn't very attentive. The restaurant was half empty, even so attention to customers need was not present. You could see wait staff engaging in long conversation at bar area.Special Features:
- Excellent Turkish CusinedatspeedVIPDined on 9/7/2014The Fillmore Troya has a very different and expanded menu compared to the Clement location. The mezes are great with varied offerings - Grilled Halloumi Cheese, Stuffed potato skins w/lamb bacon along with the Lahmajun flatbread were wonderful. We also tried the lamb beyti, lamb kabob and Branzino for two. Only complaint - arugula used in too many dishes. Make sure to try the Turkish bread. The menu changes so it's not always the same offerings as the on-line menus. Recommend for brunch, lunch or dinner.Special Features:
- My new favorite placeDebKDined on 9/5/2014LOVE this restaurant! The food really stands out, even in this food-centric town. The breads (flat breads, as well as the breads served with the dips) are outstanding. The "dips" (my word, not theirs) are incredibly delicious (muhamarra, hummus and haydari). The smoked eggplant puree that my lamb brochette came with was divine (as was the lamb). The peach/arugula salad was unbelievably good. I just don't have enough superlative words for the food here. Highly recommended!Special Features:
- very good but small size portionsbtio3000Dined on 8/31/2014Very good everything, qualities, service etc. etc. but sizes are a bit too small. It's how they feature themselves, I guess, but still :)))Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Kat7979Dined on 8/31/2014This a favorite standby as it is always good. I try different things whenever I come and each dish is fantastic. I've never had a bad experience here and the service is friendly and great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Middle Eastern findnancyDined on 8/28/2014We very much enjoyed the food at Troya on Fillmore. It was well prepared, interestingly seasoned and nicely presented. The chef uses an unusual combination of spices. The food is very different than the usual kabob and pilaf combinations that middle eastern restaurants usually serve. It's inventive and tasty.Special Features:
- Cali twistellaschrisVIPDined on 8/26/2014The food was very good, didn't like the arugula under every dish we ordered.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Turkish ModernSFJonesyDined on 8/25/2014Tried this place with a friend who had a Groupon and we were both delighted with the experience. The grilled peach and arugula salad with the yogurt dressing and almonds was terrific and refreshing. The crispy Brussels sprouts and the heirloom tomato flatbread were very tasty and good together. My friend's chicken kabobs were nicely spicy and very tender. My beef with dumplings was good but I thought the sauce was too much sour cream and not enough other flavors. We were too full for dessert, though later we both wished we'd tried something! Highly recommended (the Fillmore St. location).Special Features:
- Good food, good ambienceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/15/2014Troya has solid food and a nice vibrant ambiance. It is a bit on the pricey side if you order appetizers and drinks, but it is a good neighborhood place to go to once in awhile.Special Features:
- Delightful Neighborhood Gem!SFFoodiejlcDined on 8/14/2014Troya offers an innovative menu utilizing only the best Bay Area seasonal produce. The wait staff are friendly and are able to intelligently discuss the menu items and make spot on recommendations. Troya has been added to my top five favorite SF dining spots!Special Features:
- Great Food, Portions too SmallSFWillDined on 8/5/2014Everything great -- but portions are just too small. Raise prices 5%, increase portions 25% --> much better experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great restauranteaterVIPDined on 8/1/2014We've eaten here a number of times, and always have loved the food, appreciated the service, and found that four of us can converse comfortably. The menu changes often enough to keep us returning to try new things. But we'd come back to feast on the same things also, since the food is so good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Inventive Turkish MediterraneanleomintDined on 7/31/2014Excellent options for vegetarians and for those who enjoy lamb and fish: from mezes to large plates. The hummus, haydari, and muhammara with house made turkish bread (small rolls) is a generous portion. While the restaurant makes their own bread, you usually have to ask for more. Service is attentive but they can rush you with clearing tables. I highly recommend both locations: on Fillmore and Clement.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mixed experienceDaveyRVIPDined on 7/30/2014The operative word for the "small plate veal meatballs" is expensive. 2 smallish meatballs and garnish for $14+tax+health insurance+tip? Yikes. Vege mousakka was very good but served sufficiently hot that it was boiling and required almost a 10 minute wait for it to cool sufficiently to eat. Service was spotty due to understaffing; those where there were working hard.
- Really good overall-food, serviceNodeadbodypartspleaseDined on 7/27/2014Very Good middle eastern food. I am a vegetarian and from the warm olives to the excellent lentil soup to the vegetarian maza to the falafel platter to the pistachio baklava, everything really good. Very attentive and happy wait staff. Rather have thinner bread then the thicker Turkish bread but just get romaine lettuce leaves instead.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Troya Staff RocksSanFranFoodieVIPDined on 7/24/2014the most smiling kindest servers in San Fran! Thank YOU so much for making my 1st time at Troya so memorable. Now let's address the food: WOW WOW WOW - those brussel sprouts are 5 stars! I'm coming baaaaaaack :)Special Features:
- I Love this Place!qpaveoDined on 7/22/2014The food, the service, the ambience, all 5 stars. I haven't been to Turkey but if Troya is half as good as the food in Turkey I can't wait to visit. Plus, the people that work there are very nice and always help my wife and I find a table without reservations.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/21/2014The salads and food at Troya are excellent. I had an important business lunch with a colleague fromLos Angeles at Troya on Monday. The food was terrific. Our waiter was not. Surely they can find more personable and interested wait staff. If I had known it qould be so unpleasant I would have taken my lunch meeting to Cafe des Amis or Spruce.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Won't return to TroyaBB77Dined on 7/21/2014The quality at TROYA has gone down. Less food, higher prices, unfriendly service Will not go back
- spicy lunch on a misty dayPHcoupleVIPDined on 7/21/2014my wife and I were in SF on a rather wet and misty weekday, found a parking place on Fillmore St (gasp) and headed to Troya for an early lunch. Excellent but spicy (which I like) dishes, and the lentil soup was outstanding. Also enjoyed a Czech beer, not seen everywhere. Will be going back here again.Special Features:
- Great for post-movie dateLianaVIPDined on 7/18/2014We had a reservation right after seeing a movie at the Kabuki, which is just a few blocks away. Their menu is eclectic and has seasonal variations. If you're not famished, you can order their small plates. We had lentil soup, roasted Brussel sprouts, a cheese dish, and grilled anchovies. All yummy. They offer sparking water; a nice touch. And the management is very friendly.Special Features:
- Perfect little spotstonerfoodVIPDined on 7/10/2014When you want a nicer alternative to La Med, Troya is it. More innovative, nicer interior design, more space to breathe. Service is great and the food was delicious. We tried things we've never encountered before and was really impressed.Special Features:
- First time there but will be backHankDined on 7/4/2014This was our first visit to Troya. The food was flavorful and sized nicely, not too big and not too small. Each plate stood on its own with different flavors and different presentation. We will definitely come again.Special Features:
- Delicious!LivSFVIPDined on 7/2/2014The food is truly delicious and inventive! My husband and I love Troya!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice experiencebethkDined on 6/25/2014I went here with a groupon not knowing anything about the restaurant and was very happy. I love Fillmore St and we got a window table so it started off in the right way. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating from the start. The food was excellent. We had the calamari ( not the typical fried style which I love but sautéed and presented in a wonderful sauce that I could have eaten alone). We also had what they called pickles but were pickled veggies- very refreshing and tasty. We each had the lamb kabobs and shared a side of rice. The kabobs were on a bed of creamed lentils and seasoned perfectly. The only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 was because the lamb wasn't tender and a bit tough but delicious none the less.Special Features:
- Incredibly flavorfuljgooliaDined on 6/24/2014Food was excellent: the watermelon salad was so refreshing, the calamari grilled and deliciously spicy (and tender, not chewy), dessert was awesome. I might've paired the figs with greek yogurt instead of whipped cream but--like all the rest--was a great combo of flavors and textures (with pistachios, honey and a little whipped cream). The server Jeremy was fabulous. Great experience.Special Features:
- Troya on Fillmore StreetAnnieVIPDined on 6/24/2014wonderful food and service...the chairs are hard to sit on and could use cushions....great pleace.Special Features:
- Great for sharing!CJ24VIPDined on 6/19/2014Friendly relaxed staff made great reccos. Little overpriced but food tasted great. Feta Cigars were fab! Good for small groups and eating family style. Chill atmosphere in a great location on Filmore.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Was it something we said or wore??ESP3501VIPDined on 6/19/2014I frequent Troya often as it is in my neighborhood. I had a business lunch there and our server couldn't have been more dour if I had asked him to keep a very sour lemon in his mouth for hours on end. He was so unpleasant that he affected our entire experience. I could cite 6 examples but why bother. We didn't order appetizers or dessert as we couldn't wait to leave. It is a shame as the food is certainly good enough and the ambience is fine for an easy business lunch.
- Tough Choice:Food or VoicezestysfVIPDined on 6/17/2014I've been going to Troya Clement for over 15 years and always enjoyed it. I would rate that a Neighborhood Gem. Now that I live 2 blocks from the Fillmore location, took a friend there for a night of good food and conversation. We sat at the bar -- quieter than if we'd been at a table. Had a yummy meal. Once out on the street, in the relative quiet, we were shocked that we were both hoarse and could barely talk above a whisper. Open Table's noisiest category is "Energetic". They need something stronger. Much as I liked everything, I don't know if I would choose to go back. Too unpleasant to scream and have to say "What was that?" despite enjoying good food.
- Great food, poor serviceBarbaraVIPDined on 6/16/2014We went to Troya on a Mindsy night. The food was wonderful and the corkage fee is in,y $15 so we brought a bottle of wine. The downside was the service. It wasn't busy at all, but the server was hard to find when we asked for more bread for dips and never refilled the water. It kind if took away from the whole experience. Still, we would go back as the food was great.Special Features:
- renceDined on 6/15/2014We were absolutely bowled over by this Meditterean place with a bit of a lTurkish accent. The waiter was great and so was the food.. Highly recommend it.Special Features:
- Lousy foodFoodieVIPDined on 6/9/2014The menu online is completely different than the actual ISpecial Features:
- Delicious Turkish Food!LivSFVIPDined on 5/28/2014I love Troya on Fillmore. The food is delicious and healthy and the service warm and friendly. Everything from the grilled calamari to the roasted cauliflower to the kebabs to the flatbreads and desserts are wonderful! It is a true neighborhood gem!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Fabulous FoodFillmoreFoodieDined on 5/20/2014Troya is one of my favorite restaurants on Fillmore. It is warm welcoming comfortable. The food is always GREAT!!! I have had many dishes and all were notable. The traditional dishes are the best in San Francisco. And the Baklava is not to be missed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful!OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 5/13/2014Troya was great. Just what you'd like to find in a modern Mediterranean restaurant. We made a substantial meal tasting several innovative small plates. All were delicious and thoughtfully prepared. Don't skip the desserts. Pot au creme was rich and intensely chocolate. Hip atmosphere with warm, friendly service. Will definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Every bite is flavor explosion!HommeyVIPDined on 5/10/2014This is becoming a truly special spot - the service is friendly and precise and the food is out of this world. Our Saturday evening dining companion, who has spent a lot of time exploring the tastes of Turkey and other Mediterranean cuisines, was blown away by Troya's authenticity and powerful, yet delicate flavors. Fun!Special Features:
- surprisingly good foodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/10/2014i didn't know what to expect going into this place, but the food is very good and very reasonably priced. roasted brussels sprouts are the best i've ever had. And vegetarian moussaka was also divine. i'd definitely go back!
- Nice Friendly GemWinderDined on 5/6/2014Delicious food and offerings are varied so you can make a nice combination of plates and feel like you've had a complete meal. Wait staff is friendly and accommodating, food is imaginative, ambiance is pleasant--nice lighting and table arrangements.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
