Food was fresh and hot food served quickly. Tried the stuffed eggplant and the combination with the ground beef and satisfying. A cold appetizer platter amply worked for the table of 4 and our 4 year old grandson loved the yogurt and dill on the platter and used his spoon to get to the last bit. The only disappointment was the baklava which was a little dry. The one party member had the chicken kebob and one had a lamb kebob and all reported good preparation and presentation. Try this restaurant and it does have outdoor seating.

I came here because I had a Groupon voucher. I also noticed they were on here so I made reservations a few days before. We ordered the hummus to start and lamb shank and lamb plate for our entrees. The hummus was brought out with nothing to eat with. They do serve you bread while you order but it doesn't pair well with hummus. It was too thick. I asked the tall, white server for some pita bread and he quickly brought it out. He wasn't our server but he was very attentive and friendly. Our server was too busy talking to other guys at another table. He wasn't very attentive after this table sat. The entrees weren't bad. The shank was in a sauce and it had good flavor. The lamb plate was served with veggies and another side and it lacked some flavor. Our server seemed like he was a manager or the owner because when I showed the Groupon voucher he stated it cannot be combined with OpenTable. He was an older, thin gentleman with a heavy accent (non-hispanic). This is the first place that has ever done that. I have dined at multiple places that accept a reservation via OT and allow the customer to use a Groupon. A La Turca or this guy needs to get their head out of the ground and treat customers better. I won't recommend this place based on my experience.

Very unpleasant experience here twice. Tonight we were a party of 4 and they had just one other table with patrons. We made a reservation on Open Table and had a Groupon. He told us we can’t combine them, and that’s their right, of course, but he didn’t offer to let us use one or the other. We left. Maybe had they handled it more politely we would have come back for another visit to use the groupon, but we will transfer the groupon to another restaurant. Rudeness gets you nowhere.

A La Turca has both great ambiance and food. I was a little taken aback by some of the reviews here that discussed poor service. From my experience, the restaurant focuses on a more European experience - where servers are tremendously friendly and useful, but don't regularly harass the customers who are often involved in conversation. They were always available exactly when we needed them.

Expect lamb and lots of it. The cold app plate was really good (causing us to order seconds), and the falafel was perfectly fried. We each had something different for our main course - which were sufficiently large that we could have taken food with us. The sauces were authentic and flavorful, and everything was quite good.

My only concern was the volume of the musical entertainment that evening. I get the feeling that a lot of regulars expect the experience, but it was a little loud for our conversation.

Would go again though if I'm in the area.

We were seated promptly upon arrival. Our drink order was taken and arrived quickly, along with a basket of bread. We ordered the hot appetizer plate for the four of us. Everything was quite tasty, but a bit greasy. The entree menu had offerings for everyone. I shared the stuffed eggplant and lamb chops. The other two people ordered lamb chops and Branzino. We all enjoyed our meals and ended with either tea or Turkish coffee. We wanted decaf coffee, but it was not offered. The live music in the background made the evening a bit festive. We enjoyed our meals enough to go back again. It's a good neighborhood restaurant.

The restaurant wasn’t very busy and the service was very slow. We were a bit concerned at first but the food was definitely worth the wait! We all had lamb and it was so delicious! Friendly staff, super nice but if they could pick up the pace it would be 100% 5 stars!!!

Amazing food and fantastic service. I highly recommend A La Turca for any family gathering or romantic dinner. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. We had my sister's birthday celebration and we had a terrific family dinner. The staff was very nice and happy to answer all our questions.

The food has always been good. We like this Mediterranean restaurant because it offers so many different dishes than found in Broward.

The cold appetizer sampler for $20 is a deal. Great to share and comes with fresh warm Turkish bread. It’s our favorite.

Our five different entrees were good. Unfortunately service was slow, inattentive, and at times missing in action. Water glasses were not refilled. Soup came out with entrees and tasted like campbell’s Tomato soup.

Hopefully just an off night and not a new trend. The restaurant was NOT busy, so that was not an excuse on a Wednesday night.

We keep on returning to A La Turca because we just love the food and service. We love the Hot Sampler and Cold Sampler platters - it gives you a taste of the different appetizers and of course it delicious. For dinner, definitely the A La Turca platter. You must order the tea which complements not only the appetizers and the entree. These three items are all family style and allow for sharing. The staff is also attentive to you.

Excellent Service is the lasting impression. The food was good but with a little too much dependence on cheese in the items we got. I have been to Istanbul several times. It's one of my favorite food cities. A La Turca would be an average restarant in Istanbul, but it's good enough here to satisfy the nostagia and does not requrie a trip on an airplane.

We chose a la Turca for the food, size and generally quiet atmosphere. We really enjoyed everything we ate, but were less impressed with the service. Although we were the only ones inside, we had to finally call over our waiter to get drinks. He was more attentive after this, but not really engaged or interested. We did have to ask to have the music turned down, but neither this nor the waiter detracted from our fun. Overall, we had a good time. If the service had been better, I would have given it 4 stars. The food really is very good.

If you want good Turkish food don't waste your time here go the extra miles down to Babylon in Miami Beach world of difference between the two. This place's food tasted like Costco Turkish and service wasn't great either. My Husband who was with
me is Turkish and I have been to Turkey several times so please trust us.
