Took a while to get seated due to a birthday party ahead of us. Once we got seated, we were taken care of. Food was excellent.

We used to come here when we were dating 20 years ago - loved it then and still love it! Back then, they didn’t have a paper menu, just set items you ordered were either vegetarian or meat. This particular Saturday night, we did the dinner for two which included amazing lamb chops. The desert was a pound cake with ice cream and baklava… it was delish!

Cafe Izmir is THE BEST Mediterranean restaurant in Dallas. The food is fresh and healthy. The service is so attentive that I actually felt guilty. Everything about this place exudes class and charm.
DISCLAIMER: I have been going to Cafe Izmir for 15 years now, and I hope to be able to go for another 15.

This family run establishment is a great find, and is now on our list of regular spots.

The mentality of the family is really impressive in terms of intent to satisfy their customers. When visiting on a special Tuesday, the noise level was so high my wife and I decided to leave and told one of the staff as we were leaving that we'd come back on another night. Instead, they took us to their club next door that was quiet and set up a table to serve us there. I was super-impressed and really appreciate their "make it happen" attitude.

Besides this, the food is great and the prices are very reasonable.
