First time at Ankara for a birthday occasion, and we had a wonderful time. The menu offered enough gluten-free options for one member of our party, and the food was delicious overall. They also gifted us a birthday dessert, beautifully presented.
The bottomless brunch menu is a treat and a steal! The service was impeccable and personable. Great place to celebrate or catch up with friends!
We went for the bottomless brunch during restaurant week and really enjoyed the food and the great service. Outside of what we ordered, the servers also brought around fresh baked cookies, muffins and sausage (it was brunch!) this was in addition to receiving a selection of dips (hummus, eggplant, red pepper, etc....) as the intro to the meal. The only downside was the noise, which increased in such volume halfway through our meal that we had to lean across our 4 person table and almost yell to be heard.
Such an amazing time! Will certainly be going back!
Ankara provides a casual any day experience for diners. You don’t need to dress up, just come as your are for good-sized portions of their small plates.
We were seated about 20 minutes earlier than our reservation, and it was restaurant week in DC, so we thought this was a good thing. The staff was kind and courteous. But the tables around us had people sat at them, fed, cleared and new people sat literally up to four times while we were there. It took a really long time for us to get our food, literally an hour and a half from when we sat to getting our entree.
Not sure why our table took so long to be taken care of, and the food was absolutely delicious, but it just took a super long time. We literally caught the second to last train back to Reston and that made for a very long night.
I would recommend to someone if you have time to wait for the food.
It was the absolute best dining experience
Slow service during lunch.
I decided to book a reservation at ANKARA based on nothing other than I like Mediterranean food and the restaurant week deal. While being new to DC, I had also never heard of ANKARA, but could see why t would garner excellent reviews. It did start to rain, so thankfully they pulled the awning over my guest and I. It was a LOT of food, so come hungry or bring friends. The wine pairing for each course were great. I took my dessert home because I was stuffed. Worth it!!
Food was excellent. Great place for causal dining.
Authentic Turkish cuisine and quality service in a great atmosphere! We will definitely return.
We greatly enjoyed our lunch at Ankara and will definitely be back for more.
Everything was great-- the food was delicious, the portions were generous and the ambiance was fantastic. The only thing that really brought down the experience for me was getting eaten alive by mosquitos despite sitting indoors-- 13 mosquito bites in less than one hour kind of overshadowed any other impression I had, and it wasn't great having them hovering around during the meal. I liked ANKARA enough that I fully intend to go back regardless, but maybe in winter months or armed with repellent.
Mousaka was amazing, keftes amazing, bread was OK, service was very good-very friendly and efficient, ambiance was very nice, borek was rich, but it's freshness was OK.
Excelent service, great food, mimosas were legitimately some of the best in dc.
Order the pide and humus. Cannot recommend Ankara more
Food was delicious! Had a great dinner catching up with old friends. We were able to sit back, relax, have a delicious meal without feeling rushed. Service was friendly and efficient! Will come back :)
Fantastic service and amazing food prepared with love and presented with attention to detail. An amazing meal.
Superb service - friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. We never wanted for anything and it was a very relaxed and enjoyable meal. Chicken skewers were moist and delicious. Baba ganus had a nice smoky taste. Grape leaf tart was a standout - beef, rice and walnuts with a yoghurt topping. Nice and spicy and delicious. Pistachio cake was excellent and different than the usual dessert choices. First time here but we will be back.
The seafood was bad. Both the Seafood Orzo and Shrimp were un-edible.
The staff was very pleasant, I was the first to arrive from my group for brunch but they did not hesitate to seat me; which I appreciated. They were also very accommodating when a member of our party chose not to indulge in brunch and allowed the remaining parties to partake in the full bottomless brunch. The bottomless drinks were great, loved the pomegranate mimosa and the grapefruit mimosa, they were the best part of the brunch though the bloody mary was too spicy for my taste. Surprisingly, I did not fancy their hummus nor falafel (they were overfried and bit harder on the outside than it was supposed to be) and the hummus was bland, and granted that this is a Mediterranean restaurant it was slightly disappointing because I love both hummus and falafel very much. I also tried the calamari which needed a lot of salt, pepper and spices as they were extremely bland. Their suckulu pide - flatbread dish with the turkish sausage and mozzarella was nice as well as the grilled sucuk - turkish sausage starter. I tasted the beef bacon omelettes from my friend and it was falvourful. The meatballs in the creamy mushroom sauce was the best dish I had at Ankara. Finished off my meal with the baklava which was not as crisp as I anticipated ( a bit too much honey maybe which made it a bit soggy) and a latte. Overall great value for money, and wonderful customer service.
I had a great time with my girls. The staff is always friendly and the food was great!
Great place for a group. Server was super helpful. Food delicious
Brunch! Amazing! Endless drink & foods for 38$ per person!
Great food and drinks, a ton of unique cocktails and dishes that my group loved! Service could have been better, but overall was a good dining experience! Would recommend.
amazing service and food was soooo good! i can’t wait to go back!
Went with the family and a friend. Our waitress was helpful with picking from all over the menu to share. It was busy and the noise level was high. We still enjoyed it ... listen to the suggestions. The semolina dessert was like nothing I’ve ever had before. I highly recommend.
Hands down the BEST bottomless brunch. The food was incredible. Everything we ate was fresh and clearly just made. The service was spectacular. There was never a time in which our drinks weren't completely filled and our food orders were being delivered at a steady pace.
Hamoon was such a great server! He definitely went above and beyond to take care of us. We had the best time!
The lady who served us was really friendly. The food was tasty. The price couldn't be beaten in Dupont Circle.
The food was amazing and our server, Bora, was excellent, all dishes he recommended including the wine selection was on the spot.
The food was amazing...baked hummus, the lentil soup, the salads and the baked veggies. The only thing I had a problem with was the price of the drinks we ordered. The rest just an unexpected good experience. I’ll try to be back!!
Hamoon and another waiter were great!! Gave us complimentary tea and coffee(:
The brunch was great. We did the all you can eat and all you can drink. Our glasses were never empty, service is great. The food is amazingly delicious! Special thanks to Jenay, the manager and our server Hamoon!
We were very pleased with the service of our server Ali! The food is wonderful!
Hamon was our server, he was FANTASTIC. Will absolutely go back. Food was good, drinks were great, service was the best. Absolutely recommend for a bottomless brunch.
Very decent spot for a casual lunch or dinner. Flavors were quite authentic and my salmon was prepared very well. They have a fried Hummus appetizer there with sausage and mozzarella that’s really delish and FILLING. The service was quite good! Very attentive and friendly staff.
This is about the 3rd time I’ve been here and I will continue to come back/recommend this place. Hands down best bottomless brunch (or any brunch) in the city! Love their outdoor patio and how quick and friendly their service is. Already looking forward to going back!
Great experience + environment! Will return.
The chocolate dessert was addictively good. We enjoyed the sampler appetizer. The meatballs with mushrooms were everyone’s favorite small dish. The mousaka was a very close second!
Our experience there was superb all around - food, ambiance, service was excellent from the moment we entered the restaurant until we were out the door. Kabobs were delicious, wine was superb (and 1/2 price) salads were large, desert supreme. And our waiter Ali was exceptional. Nice place to spend a leisurely meal if you like.
