Very clean, good ambience, great service. Food is very good but presentation lacked polish. I loved that is a family business. The hostess was welcoming and warm without being too clingy. Overall it’s a great place, good food and warm ambience. The mixed grill can be a little more grilled even if just for presentation.

Four of us ate lunch outside for a family birthday. The Turkish gyros, grilled lamb chops and Anatolia Eggplant were exceptionally good. Dennis the server was also excellent: he remembered one person’s need for gluten-free from the reservation, offered to turn on the radiant heaters, and was helpful with menu selections. This was our first experience with Anatolia Turkish Restaurant but hopefully not the last.

It had been several years since we had dined at Anatolia. There always seems to be a new restaurant to try in Nashville but we decided to go back to an old favorite and we are delighted that we did. The food was wonderful, the staff friendly and service was good in an unhurried relaxed manner. We left saying we would not wait so long for our next visit.

Consistently excellent food. The fresh bread and oil dip that is served before each meal is a great appetizer. Their hummus is superb. My favorite dishes: Kofta kabob, Adana kabob, chicken shish kabob.

The food is really good. We had the lentil soup which is creamy. We had two salads and shared a mixed platter.

It was very filling and the service is very good. We had originally reserved for outdoors at 4:15pm but asked for an inside table because it was clear, with the sun setting, that it would eventually become too hot.

We sat at a table, by the window, separate from other patrons. There were flies. That and maskless servers are our biggest concern. We are from out of town. The place appeared to have many regulars dining there.

But the flies, they have to be addressed.

We had heard about Anatolia for years but had never been. We decided to last night and we loved it. I had the chicken stew and my boyfriend had the lamb. Both were incredible. The lamb was especially delightful because it did not have that lamb-y taste. We will definitely return!

Delicious and authentic Mediterranean food. Great value. We left with full stomachs and happy hearts. Would be a nice setting for a date-night, but I went with a few girlfriends. Our server was extremely attentive, and the food came out quick and was very tasty!

We eat there frequently and sit outside. This is the first time that we were not 100% satisfied. We reserved outdoors, and the reservation was accepted. When we arrived (after a longer drive) there were no tables outside. We were informed that they did not have outdoor seating. No explanation, let alone apology, was offered other than the statement that they will update their system. I feel that they should have updated the system before accepting the reservation, or they should not have accepted the reservation, or they should not have offered outdoor sitting on the OpenTable platform. Therefore, only three out of five stars.
