Horrible. We were never waited on and left after repeatedly trying to get a waiter after 25 minutes.
Not returning.

I love this restaurant. The food is terrific! Had the appetizer sampler plate and the special bread and we all loved everything we ate. Even the regular bread is wonderful Branzino is great, as was the kebab. Too full for any dessert. It gets VERY crowded and quite noisy although it's much quieter outside if the weather permits. Be sure to make a reservation and enjoy!!!!!

A hidden gem. My friend told me about it and not sure I would have found it without her precise directions. So glad I did. Warm, friendly, attentive service. Yummy bread. Delicious food. The grilled branzino filet was perfectly prepared. Next time, I must try the appetizers as they look/sound great. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside---basically adjoining the driveway. Don't let that dissuade you. Go and enjoy!

The food is consistently good. I had the lamb shank cooked over mashed eggplant and it was delicious, very, very tender and tasty. My husband had the salmon which is always cooked to our requests, and always good too.
They also serve this puffed bread that comes right from the oven, and with their hummus is just perfect.

The food was tasty. Portions were generous

We had to ask for the price fixed menu.

We were not given bread. Maybe because we ordered a special bread

They did not have decaf coffee. Very strange. He said they ran out.

The food was absolutely excellent. For a party of two, we ordered a vegetable pide and mixed grill platter which was more than enough for us to share, with a lot of variety and great taste. The wine was reasonably priced and a great complement to the meal, and the service is one of the best I've had in Port Washington (La Piccolo Liguria comes to mind). I will definitely be coming back here with larger parties for even more variety, because the menu is large and there's more I want to try!

Surprisingly good. We came to this restaurant after reading universally good reviews here on Open Table. We arrived to find a full restaurant - the owner quickly found a table and chairs and made new outdoor seating for us within minutes of our arrival. When he heard it was our first time there, he pushed aside the waiter so he could personally explain the menu. We had a super dinner of a crazy specialty inflated bread, fresh humus, grilled branzino and veggies cooked to perfection. Even the wine by the glass was excellent. I think indoors in the cold weather would be more cramped and noisy - but our experience outdoors on a summer night was perfection. We'll be back!

Wow! We ate rather late after a day of sailing, so it's hard to comment on noise and ambiance. The food was spectacular. One of our party grew up in Israel. Another spent time there. Two of us have visited Turkey. We all seek out Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurants and agreed that this restaurant will be on our respective must-visit-at-every-opportunity list.

Bosphorus is a neighborhood restaurant that offers real good food and drink. The atmosphere is casual and the wait staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. They will recommend dishes that you would not ordinarily try and they turn out to be delicious. We eat there often.

Bosphorus is a relatively new restaurant. It is a neighborhood gem. The area has been revamped. The outside of this and the adjoining stores are covered with a lovely grey siding with a burgundy trim. The inside is small but they have maximized the space. The menu is small but you can certainly find something to eat. The food is plentiful, delicious and appealing. The atmosphere is pleasant as is the staff. We were greeted both coming and going and thanked for our business.
