They were closed. No notice on their phone or website. I understand weather related issues, but at the very least put a notice up on the out going message for people that call or on your website. We patronize this establishment often, but this burns me.
Loved this meal. The Brussels Sprouts were the best I’ve ever had - amazing. The mushooms were a close second. Actually I loved all the things I tried which was a bit of everything in the menu (resulting an abundance of take home boxes :) ). Will definitely return if I’m ever in the area again. Will recommend highly!
One of my Favorite restaurants in downtown Frederick!
Slow service, staff seemed overwhelmed with party going on in 2nd room
Hour before appetizers came out followed immediately by our meals
Food was good
The seating was not optimum - and the noise was too much off and on.
The food was very good and so was the service
Fabulous restaurant! Wonderful for any occasion!
Food tasted fresh. The service was great. Would definitely recommend.
Restaurant week menu was delicious. Keftedes, crispy brussel sprouts and shrimp stew were great! The ice cream was a nice surprise. We sat in the bar section at a table and could hear each other talk even with live music. Singer happened to be great, too. Service was pretty slow at times but they were busy so I get it. Overall, great experience as usual! 😍
Restaurant week options included many of our favorites. Great food, great value.
Yet another first time visit thanks to Restaurant Week. We’d love to come back here with a group someday.
Shared one four course meal for $37, and it was plenty of food. Normal pricing looked good, and half price wine bottles on Wednesday was a nice bonus. Thanks to our waitress for excellent service and good suggestions.
The Turkish wine we wanted to try wasn’t available, but our backup Zinfandel was good.
The falafel wasn’t bad, but we’d probably not order it again. Their flash fried Brussels sprouts should be tried by everyone, fantastic!
The main course was an excellent shrimp dish called Garides Saganaki, which will be hard to resist not getting again next time we go.
The chocolate pudding with caramel, sea salt, and whipped cream was divine.
2nd time here. Really really good. Authentic Turkish and Lebanese and Greek offerings. Brussels sprouts to die for. Fresh baked pita. Raki. Great service and ambience.
The bartenders were amazing. We sat at the bar for our meal. Food was delivered and the bartenders knew the menu very well
The intention of going to Ayse Meze was for a quiet, date night. We made a reservation about a week in advance . Although we had never been, we had heard good things. When we arrived at the restaurant, instead of being taken to the dining room, we were taken to the bar. In addition, our small two-person table appeared to have been placed last minute or as an after thought. The table was squeezed into two larger tables that seemed more permanent. In addition, it was placed in the egress path to the emergency exit (a life safety issue), which was right next to my chair. Lastly, the table was wobbly and one of us had to put our foot on one of the table supports at all times to keep it from moving around. After sitting for a couple of minutes and discussing just leaving, we decided to give the food a chance and sit at the bar. Frankly, our review would have been much worse, except the barstaff and the quality of the food made up for the poor first impression. My impression is the restaurant either overbooked or was trying to be greedy because it was First Saturday. I would recommend this place for casual dining or for happy hours/casual get together at the bar, but they don't seem interested in taking care of the people who make reservations.
My first experience at this restaurant was with a group of friends one week before this lunch, and Ayse was sooo wonderful then that I had to introduce it to my husband. We're real "foodies" who live abut twenty-five miles south, and we were both thrilled with this lunch visit too! In fact, we met friends there (both had visited Ayse before) , and our server was the same wonderful woman who served my group one week before this, so I assured everyone that she would care for us beautifully, and she certainly did! She was most polished and professional, yet very smiling and helpful! (Please give her a special "thank you" for her outstanding professionalism!) The food was excellent, prices are great, ambience fabulous, so what's not to love?!?!
Great service. Food was very good. Awesome specialty drinks. Liked the bar environment for table
We had a great time at Ayse, we will definately be back for more.
Great birthday dinner
Son moving to flo
As always, Ayse never disappoints. Try the Portugese wine. A GREAT WINE AND GOOD VALUE. If you have time, let it breathe. The tannin will mellow.
We've been several times, never disappointed. The roasted Brussels sprouts are to die for.
This was my second time dining at Ayse Meze and it was excellent. The Turkish Cigars were fantastic and the scallops were delicious. I will be sure to visit again.
Fantastic food with warm staff and a location near local hot spots
As usual we had a phenomenal meal with great service and wonderful ambiance
The buffet was a plentiful and great value for the money.
All good except being rushed a bit. If you close soon, then don't suggest a second bottle of wine to your customers, and then come by every 5 minutes trying to clear the table.
Amazing Valentine’s Day dinner!
Very good menu and service as usual. Tapas are such a great way to try different foods!
We has not visited for quite a while and were very happy we re-connected! Foid and service were spot on! Looking forward to returning soon!
I'm a senior citizen. My husband and I were meeting college friends in Frederick for dinner. Neither couple lives in Frederick. I asked my twenty-something daughter for recommendations. She texted her friends who live in or near Frederick. Several suggested Ayse Meze Lounge. I made reservations requesting a quiet spot in the restaurant (two of us wear hearing aids).
We were promptly seated in a little alcove in the back of the restaurant. The setting was attractive and the seats were comfortable.
Our server was charming and efficient. We asked her for food and wine recommendations, telling her what we liked. She was spot on with the small plates. How any plates should we get? She recommended a number that was exactly right. The food was absolutely delicious! All of us just loved it! Yummy. Plus, it was pretty quiet inside the alcove. We were able to have a nice conversation while eating, which is becoming more and more of a rarity in restaurants.
After dinner, we moved to the bar. It was fun. Good drinks. Witty conversation with the bartender.
My personal test of a good restaurant is "Was eating experience worth the time and money?" The answer for Ayse Meze is an absolute "Yes!"
Always a treat tonight was made special by eating in the much quieter side room. Our server add to the evening with her excellent attention and helpful suggest ions. Thanks for another happy occasion
An overnight trip to the area for Valentines celebration - had a wonderful dining experience! Would highly recommend!!
Great meal. Loved the Lamb Chops. Will come back.
Food is always wonderful, service is quick and friendly.
Always enjoy the food here and even if you don't like Brussels sprouts you will love theirs, however, the service was a bit off this time. Nice but not on his game. We'll be back.
We liked the atmosphere, the waitress was very nice, patient and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the appetizers. The eggplant wasn't anything to brag about and the veal was very good. We will definitely be back.
Great variety of small plates, served in a timely manner, well prepared and delicious. Excellent service. Don't accept a table in the back room.
Nice, relaxing, enjoyable and delicious! Service was attentive and friendly. Wish I lived closer to enjoy the dining experience more often! A true neighborhood gem!
Lovely brunch for my birthday with family. Everything from beginning to end was perfect. Our waiter was a delight!
