Ours was an outstanding experience, Anatolia can compete with the best restaurants in Nashville and areas world renown for their food. It had to be the best Lamb ever. Everyone was pleased with the service, food, wine and the entire experience. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We were visiting from San Francisco and choose this place based on positive reviews on OpenTable. The service was friendly, but the food was very disappointing. We've had great Turkish food, and this just didn't measure up.

This restaurant is always excellent. Turkish cuisine is authentic and delicious. Wide variety on menu, including many dishes that will satisfy if you are daunted by Turkish cuisine. Seafood is excellent, and lamb dishes superb. Staff is friendly and excellent.

This is a great place for good healthy food. It is also very quiet. It is not a hip place but the food is awesome! It is a great place for vegetarians. It is also a good place for kids because the kebobs are simple and healthy. The service is awesome. AND my favorite feature if they have a $10 corkage fee - great place to eat good food and bring your own wine.

Wow! This place was amazing—from the service to the food. We had 3 vegetarians in our group and all of us got something delicious! The grape leaves appetizer was sooo good! The service was also phenomenal. Super attentive and kind!

Visited Anatolia for a work-related birthday. Some social, some business. The food was great, grape leaves & hummas for appetizers, and my eggplant with lamb was excellent. This place is an outstanding value.

This restaurant never disappoints! Service is always stellar, clean environment very inviting. Tonight the gyro wasn't as fresh as it could be. Too many onions and too much lettuce left it to be less than flavorful. I should've stuck with my guns and got the shish kebabs like I normally do :-)

Have been there many times and reviewed before. In a nutshell, home-cooking Mediterranean style with several appetizing lamb and eggplant dishes and outstanding appetizers (e.g., Haidari yoghurt. Efficient and pleasant waiters/waitresses. Value is excellent for the quality and freshness of the food.

We went with friends to this restaurant and we all enjoyed our food so much! Everything was excellent. The lamb kabob I had was tender and flavorful. Beware the baklava it's meant to be shared! We will definitely return the next time we're in the area.

We had an especially delicious dinner at Anatolia recently. The wild salmon special was fabulous and the lamb kebab is consistently tender and tasty. We cannot recommend Anatolia more highly. We always enjoy our experience there.

Lunch stop on our way to our romantic getaway traveling from Memphis ! We had the best Turkish meal in the USA, its authentic having travelled extensively in Istanbul, Cesme ,Kusadasi and surrounding areas. A must try -mixed platter kebab and the lamb chop kabob was the best. We end our meal with kunafe and Turkish coffee what a delight. Service was excellent.

This is a favorite Nashville restaurant. We had nine in our party. The service was excellent. We were visiting and our server was very considerate not to interrupt our conversation. The food came quickly (but not too fast). As always, everything ordered was perfect. If you like lamb, order the lamp chops.

Decided to give Anatolia a try after reading reviews on Open Table. I have to say they did not disappoint. We were seated immediately and greeted within a minute by our server. Our server gave us time to look over the menu and gave us the specials of the day. We started with the sampler appetizer. All of it was fabulous. I had the mixed grilled platter which came with a chicken, lamb and kofta kabob as well as a lamb chop. If you want to try a little bit of several things this is the way to go. All of it was cooked and seasoned well. My wife had the shish kabob. It was just as delicious. We will definitely be back!!

Highly recommend this restaurant. We had a delicious authentic meal --tried various options- from the sampler appetizer and falafel to main courses of eggplant, lamb stew, and ravioli to the kunefe and rice pudding---all were delicious! I'm still thinking about our meal days later. Service was great. It's a quieter restaurant compared to most in Nashville which I actually really enjoyed for a change. We will definitely be coming back!

We had a large birthday party of 17 in the back room and the service was absolutely incredible. Warm, inviting, fun, and attentive. I couldn't have asked for more. Absolutely delightful staff! They even went out of their way to hang a birthday sign on the wall, and serve a cake under candlelight. Very grateful!
