    Food is great. Definitely have to have the “dinner for two” if it’s only two people as you can try three different entrees, three different veggies and three different dips

    Food was good. Order taken promptly. Food a little slow to arrive at the table. We were seated in the area just as you enter and it was hot (sweaty hot) in that room.

    This gem on Greenville Ave is simply one of the best restaurants in Dallas. Family owned and family run, you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all fantastic. The service is always top notch and the wine is always good. Never had a bad time at Cafe Izmir.

    The food was excellent. The tapas dishes were ample, and the variety of vegetarian choices was a nice bonus. Our friends ordered the "dinner for two" for $75 and were not disappointed. A shout out to our server Marcelo. He was overloaded but to my surprise we never went without drinks, etc, apps and dishes arrived on time, and table maintenance was on the spot. We'll be going back soon!

    The food was good, serving potions, flavor, and presentation. The night I assistes may be one of their busiest, they had a large group which were noisy, in essence that's what made me give this rating. I must return in a different time to give it a second chance

    it had been a long time since we dined at Cafe izmir. We found the welcome to be friendly. We got our table on the patio as requested. The food and wine was excellent. The service unreasonably slow however the server was very nice so don't know what the issue was. We were left for long periods at a time with no service - wine and water refills, entre to be served and check to be handled. All in all, it was a good experience and we will be back.

    Sat outside because I brought my dog. That part of the place is very lacking, no ambiance at all. It's basically in a parking lot. It would be great if they could have a good patio. No self parking, the restaurant next door has all of the spaces with their name on it. And sitting outside, I think we were forgotten a bit as we had to track down the waiter several times. All that said, the food was pretty good, maybe not as good as I remember....but good

    Delicious meal with very affable staff who took good care of us. We ordered the date night special, which allowed us to sample a bit of everything, and a bottle of Turkish wine. Next time, I’d probably order small plates to share a la carte as I am not sure the special was that big a bargain—and it was more food than we could eat. We will definitely be back.

    Cafe Izmir is a Dallas institution. From the moment we walked in, we were in good hands. When we asked for a glass of wine that they were out of, they brought three wines to the table as tasting so we could find the right one for our meal. The food is delightful. We ordered tapas and everything was great. The only thing to know is that the hummus has a thinner texture than you might expect, but it goes perfectly with their food and the taste is on point!
