Food is very good and servers are attentive. The restaurant is small but not noisy. Nice menu selections. Good salads and delicious puffy bread. Not inexpensive especially with drinks and dessert but highly recommended.

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!

One of my favorite local restaurants. The food is always wonderful from the explosion of taste to the presentation. Everything is always made to perfection. Really one of the best turkish restaurants I have eaten in in the NY area. Definitely worth the drive.

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.

Great food. Authentic Turkish food. The bread is amazing. Closest Turkish food without going to Turkey. Worth the trip to Port Washington. Dinner is crowded so make a reservation. Parking can be a problem.

A great find! My wife had the Moussaka, very hot temperature wise, but a very full meal. I had the mixed grill which also provided a very generous portion. The variety of meats on the plate provided a wonderful way to sample the different kebabs, and I couldn't get enough of the jasmine rice. So glad we found this place, we will definitely be back.

Great introduction to Turkish food. Our waiter was fun, engaging and patient. Our group found the lamb kebobs, spinach/feta pide, falafel very good. Appetizers were a little small for sharing, but the entree portions were good size. Outdoor seating was pleasant enough, just a little tight.

Aside from the novelty of having a Mediterranean menu, I feel their food is average compared to the surrounding restaurants of similar genre. Nothing in the list is ' spectacular ' , something that may bring you back because the experience, and flavor was differentiating.
The prices have gone up and value has decreased.

We eat at many middle eastern restaurants on Long Island, but I must say this rates as either #1 or #2 of the ones we have tried. The selections were abundant, all four of us loved the dishes we chose and the service was very good and responded to our few requests. The vegetables were fresh, the baba ganoush was one of the tastiest I have had, the shrimp dishes had some of the best and juiciest shrimp and everything was plated very nicely. We live in Hauppauge, but it is worth the trip to eat at Bosphorous.

On a holiday weekend my guest and I enjoyed a bottle of turkish wine that the server recommended. It was a perfect beginning to an impressive meal. The MUST HAVE bread was delivered hot and the mixed appetizers that we had the waiter suggest were fantastic. Each of the 5 samples were tasty and consumed within minutes. The whole fish dinner came out next as was equally outstanding. Everything that was delivered to the surrounding tables also looked delicious. Certainly worth a return dinner. The chocolate dessert also waiter recommended was the perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience. We ended with a turkish tea that was tasty. Run don't walk and enjoy this place this summer.
