Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine is a family owned business, established in 2005, that offers variety of authentic Turkish food from many regions of Turkey. Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine adapted its name from one of the oldest cities in the world, Istanbul, which was once known as the Constantinople in the early 13th century. The name “Bosphorous” taken from the strait that lies in the center of Istanbul connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara, Europe to Asia. The decor of this eatery is kept to minimum to draw the attention to the food. The intent was to create a modernized, warm authentic atmosphere by taking the old elements of Istanbul and combining it with some modern influences to create a truly unique experience.

Food was excellent as always and portions enough for seconds the next day. Lavas bread a must, with dips - simple but delicious! Our waiter was attentive. A great birthday meal.

Actually, when we were about to reach there and we called to place order, they told us we are closing right now due to some faulty equipment.

I suggest there should be a way to inform the people who have reservations.

I gave full star to other things since I have heard good about their food.

I had a reservation for 4 and then two others tagged along. We the hostess was very accommodating and seated all 6 of us together at a spacious table. The server was very helpful and knowledgeable and answered all of the questions that we had about the menu. Our food was served fresh and hot, even though there were 6 people with different items. The food was delicious and our server was able to quickly separate our orders into separate checks. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I would readily recommend this restaurant to others.

As usual, the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. They handed out appetizers when we arrived and that helped us choose our entree. Waitress was friendly and knew the menu.

Can't wait to go back there.

Friendly welcoming personnel. Accommodating staff with excellent knowledge of menu items with the added know how about spice and condiment ingredients. Very good attempts to satisfy the tastes of guests. Respectable wine/beverage list with several interesting creative house specials. Portions were more than adequate and fairly priced.

The service was impeccable as was the food! We already had our reservations but as we walked up, we were offered a sample of the chicken Adana. My girlfriend loved it so much she ended up ordering it as her entree and it was expertly prepared. We also had the Mousaka (sp?) and White Bean Salad. Top-notch all the way around, we'll definitely be back. Great service, Bobby!

We brought our neighbors for their first time. Food was good as always but they need to do something with the entrance area where you are trying to eat and talk to your friends and people come in really loud to get a table. It’s too crowded in the front area.

Fantastic overall. The food is delicious. So is the Turkish wine. The wine flight or the Turkish red are both real treats. The lamb is the best I’ve ever had. The lavash is so good with everything.

Wash your hands and go to the bathroom before you arrive. There is always a long line to use the bathroom.

I love their eggplant dip- very Smokey and tasty. I enjoyed the stuffed cabbage flavors, but felt the rice was a bit over cooked/mushy.

We had a last minute opportunity to go on a nice date. We’ve been eyeing Bosphorous. I was lucky to grab the only reservation available. We got there a few minutes early and they got us right back to our table. Rebecca was our server, but David also said hello and welcomed us. I had asked him some questions and he took the time to answer them all as well as make suggestions. Rebecca then gave us her suggestions which tweaked what David suggested, it was nice to hear from both.

We had the two eggplant pick two, the lavash and the olives as apps. So good! We followed up with the salad that was all veggies - tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, pickles, olives, feta and a tasty simple dressing mmmmm. We shared the lamb shank with the Jasmin rice as an entree. It fell right off the bone and was incredibly flavorful. We thought we were completely stuffed but managed to also eat the pineapple dessert and the chocolate baklava, both also amazing!

Service was wonderful. We really were guests in there home they opened up wanting us to enjoy ourselves. Thank you. I think you’ll be fine with any server because you can tell they all care and the restaurant has built a culture of hospitality, it’s not full of people who just come to work and go home. They provide an experience. We really did enjoy our server Rebecca, conversation with her was fun.

Thank you to everyone on your team. We had a great night.

No pictures. Too busy just enjoying each other on our last minute date night.

Our table was ready when we arrived at 6:30. Antonio presented himself as our waiter. Very convivial person, easy going and very helpful in selecting our favourites. This gentlemen is perfect for the job and a very good ambassador for the restaurant . The manager got wind of my spouse’s anniversary and offered her a baklava before leaving. Such a nice and friendly gesture. We will return again soon.

Was in town on business with colleagues. We were getting very hungry so our hotel concierge recommended Bosphorus. Got there around 6:30pm and they were able to seat us on a busy night very quickly. The bartender was very attentive and poured excellent drinks for us. When we were seated (right by the main door), server came over and was attentive, until we ordered, then we didn't see him again until it was time for the check. Food was quite good, all our party was very happy with the meal. We had some specific dietary requirements in our party and this restaurant was a great fit for all of those. Recommend, but make your reservations farther in advance so that you aren't seated so close to the door and can be in the main area of the dining room.
