Good was amazing but the service was so inexcusably poor that it effected the experience too much to enjoy

The dinner and service were excellent! My server was very attentive.

A dancer entertained the diners. She was fun to watch, engaged the audience, and created a lot of smiles.

Cafe Istanbul is a great place for an enjoyable dining experience! I'm returning again soon.

The restaurant canceled our reservation one hour before our reservation time. They said they couldn't accommodate us even though we had made our reservation weeks earlier.

We have enjoyed Cafe Istanbul for at least 15 years. This was our first visit to the Frisco location and we had an excellent experience overall. Kudos to Dennis our server, who was attentive to our needs in the midst of a busy time. The food, as always, is authentic Turkish, with every bite tasty!

Good place. However, I was shocked to be served a tasteles chicken wings in a $48.95 plate. It didn't used to be part of this plate. This is not authentic at all. The quality and the test of food could be improved. I used to love this place. The service is great.
