We got our table over 20 minutes after the reservation time and with no waiting area, had to wait by the road with kids. The food was overpriced for the tiny quantity and poor quality. We won’t be back here.

We had dinner outside on their patio. The service, ambience and food were all excellent. Our server was one of the best I’ve had and the lavash is served hot and fresh as well. Perfect portion sizes as well. We will go back for sure, as it just became one of my favorite restaurants in the Plano area! Do yourself a favor and if you like Turkish food or haven’t tried it, go!!

In disbelief we watched the owner “disinfect” our table with Windex. Our young adult kids were refused a phone takeout order earlier that evening because place was too busy to take it. We ordered for them when we got in, but the order had an error and was missing bread. Not a great rep for an expansive restaurant. Our waiter got lost for a while and we could not get anyone’s attention until a waiter who was taking care of the table next to us took our drink order. I am also personally annoyed when a restaurant automatically adds gratuity. We had a party of four, we did not enjoy the service, and we definitely will not be coming back.

I wouldn't recommend going to this restaurant to anyone. Manager/host didn't care at all to help or fix their mistake. Upon arrival, we weren't even greeted for 10 minutes. We were next in line at the host and instead, they chose to greet people who arrived after us and seat them before us. If we tried to say anything we were hushed by the host and even a customer had the nerve to get involved in our poor service because she was friends with the owner. After expressing our terrible first experience to the manager, they still didn't care or even acknowledge how they treated us. Will never be visiting this restaurant again.

The manager/owner was doing everything he could - hosting, bartender, and server. The only thing was that his manners need work when dealing with patrons. He was overwhelmed and not pleasant but the food and atmosphere is great! I wouldn’t go back on a busy night but I would go back.

The waiter took forever to take our order. He didn’t even offer to refill our water at any point of time. He didn’t bring us plates to eat. We had to go to the manager and ask for water and plates. I wouldn’t recommend this place for a very bad service otherwise food was good.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints. Authentic and excellent Turkish cuisine at its best. The crispy borek with beef appetizer was amazing. The table was unanimous on the Mixed Grill for 2 (Adana Kebab, Lamb Shish Kebab, Chicken Shish Kebab, Istanbul Doner, Chicken Wings and Chicken Beyti with rice pilaf, marinated red cabbage, onion-parsley mix and grilled sliced tomatoes). All the meats dishes were tender and tasty. Service was well timed and friendly. We will definitely return and make Café Istanbul a regular dining out stop.

It was our first time there so there was no major complaint during lunch. We sat outside so it was nice. The service is A++. Might have to come back to try different items on the menu.

The food is almost always outstanding and we always have the same great server. Until this time... The server seemed new. Didn’t listen to anything and kept bringing the wrong food and wrong drinks!! I ordered a lemon drop with grey goose and was brought a lemon drop as well as a grey goose on the rocks with a lime. ...... we ordered two combo appetizers to try mane things because we were with someone that has never been. We ended up getting two identical combo appetizers and the meatballs were spoiled!! The meat smelled looked and tasted sour! We have never had that happen EVER but this makes me worry a bit for the direction I hope this place is not heading. We love it so i hope this isn’t them cutting corners and costs :(

Hamdi, our waiter, suggested several pairings of wine and food and he was right about everything. If you are lucky enough to have him as your waiter you are truly lucky indeed. Great man. Food was amazing from appetizer to entrees to desert. Bread was fresh and hot and before the basket was empty someone was bringing fresh pita from the over. Restaurant is beautiful and the outdoor seating on a nice summer night can’t be beat. Great place for dinner date with the wife. We loved it here and will definitely be back. An absolute gem of an establishment in Texas. Enjoy!

Portions of the menu were told to us that they were unavailable but then another party received those items on their table. Waiter would come by and then not be back for almost 15-20 minutes. Food was good but not really worth dealing with the poor service.
