Very noisy, loud music. Focus is on Hookah, not restaurant.
Service and food was outstanding, didn’t like the music, it should be more middle eastern…
Fantastic. Good and service are top notch.
Good food and service as usual. If you like beef the ribeye kabobs are excellent as is the hummus. Not crazy about the hookah smoke, but tolerable. It would be better to have a separate patio area for hookahs or just focus on being a good restaurant and eliminate the hookah bar aspect until after 10pm.
Really nice place for a dinner. Food & service excellent! Will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service !!
We will be back
Great Turkish cuisine! Excellent hummus and kabobs.....good sized portions. Service was good, patio is nice, and belly dancer was good too! We went for dinner and stayed from around 530pm to about 9pm. It was a nice dinner crowd.....a few hookahs out but not smoky or a lot of partying. I think it becomes a bit more of a bar/hookah destination later on in the evening, but not sure as we did not stay. So at least in the earlier part of the evening it is a restaurant and dinner location as opposed to a bar....which in my opinion is a good thing :). If you like Mediterranean style cuisine, it's definitely worth a visit
They will try to charge you for every little thing. No free refills. If you want to add a meet such as shrimp to your main dish, they will not simply charge more to add the shrimp, they will charge you for an entire extra entre and just dump it on top of what you ordered. The food is delicious, and the restaurant is beautiful, but this place gouges you.
Rally love this place will be going back
DONT GO UNLESS U WANT HORRIBLE SERVICE
Enjoyed the ambiance and experience! Hookah service was great.
Our first time here. The Music was played way too loud and I love loud music, but for dining. Not so much. We were the only two on the dining room side. The hookah side was pretty full as well as the outside. That was not our cup of tea. Waiter was excellent and provided good recommendations. We may get take away in the future but probably won't come back to eat it. Lamb kabobs were top notch!
Great all around!
Hoprrible staff, waited and sat for 45min without order being taken. Horrible waitress with attitude. Drove 45min to try this place, only to drink some waters and leave.
Atmosphere was wonderful, the food was amazing, and the hookah was great
Incredible food, service, and atmosphere!! We will be going back all the time.
This place is awesome; great food, great entertainment and the service for two southerners first experience was very helpful and attentive. The atmosphere was festive and very welcoming. Can’t say enough about this place. 10/10’s !!!
Awesome food and service.
If you are looking for fresh Mediterranean food with an authentic atmosphere, Cafe Efendi is your destination. The staff is welcoming, gracious and accommodating to parties of all sizes. The food is authentic, fresh with perfectly balanced flavors and served in a comfortable pace to allow you to fully enjoy conversation and the dining experience.
I highly recommend the whole fish; flaky & moist pared with a generous salad.
The tip was confusing they added the tip for two people and at the bottom of the receipt it said suggested tip amounts . We ended up giving 54.00 tip It was misleading . Be careful when you tip .
Service food and ambience were outstanding!
Recommending it to all my friends snd intend to go back.
Brunch was generous and delicious!
Had great food and amazing service! Loved the atmosphere too!
Service was amazing. Loved the atmosphere. Food amazing. Music was super loud only downside but we asked to turn it down and they did so but then appeared another staff turned it back up but was more tolerable and they switched to authentic themed music. We loved our food and service so we will be back!!
It was our first time there. Our server was lovely - couldn't be more helpful! Authentic music and ambiance. Delicious and gracious plenty appetizers and dinner items. I still have leftovers that we are enjoying! We will be back for sure.
This restaurant is awesome can’t wait to go back.
They promised a free appetizer when we booked but then charged for it
Cafe Efendi is a wonderful place to have a Mediterranean dinner. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The music was a little loud but that was only while the dancer was performing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Great food great ambience fun fun fun love the belly dancers loved my dinner Friday and Saturday night are especially fun because of everybody sits and enjoys and dances and smokes hookah🎊🎉🎊 loads of fun for many many hours so it’s a lot of fun thank you🎊🎉😁💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
Didn't know this was really a Hookah bar. It presented like it was a regular Mediterranean/Greek restaurant here. Not a deal breaker as we were seated on the other side of the restaurant and it was not overly busy. The side where we were seated could've used a face lift for sure. Server was very nice and tried hard. But - the wrong beer was brought and he insisted it was right. Ok - he replaced it with something else, so it was ok. Ordered hummus and it was pleasant enough though didn't wow us. Then we got Pide which was tasty but VERY greasy. AND the Chicken Soulaki was RAW. Inedible. Had to return it and frankly, was sorta turned off and didn't order any other replacement. At best, the food was average. We just missed the live music and belly dancers, who were coming in when we were leaving. Maybe they would have made the overall expereince better. But - based on our experience, we don't need to revisit any time soon.
We were three couples. The food was outstanding. All the recommendations were so good. The service was top notch. We love this place!
Way too noisy and the music was way too loud!! I had a headache several days afterwards
The food and atmosphere were excellent. Genoa was amazing with conversation, recommendations and made it a most enjoyable evening.
Amazing kababs and great service
Great Place! Atmosphere nice enough for special date. House Wine very good. Food very good and authentic. Only negative, they did not honor my coupon for wine; claimed it was a fake.
Brilliant as always. My wife and I enjoy Mediterranean food in California. It is great to find this place.
First time visiting Cafe Efendi - Not sure what to expect, except that it would be Mediterranean.
Wine - They had a good number of selections. I would have liked seeing more California wines.
Appetizer - We had the sampler. Very good.
Entree - Traditional fare. We did have a vegan with us; their choices were limited.
Ambiance - You felt transported. Interior was nicely appointed, but not in a cheesy way.
Entertainment - They had a keyboardist playing traditional songs - he was okay. They did have a bellydancer that performed, and visited all of the tables.
Dessert - Couldn't tell you. We were pretty satisfied by the time it came for dessert. They did have on display baklava and other pastries that looked good.
Food was fantastic with a variety on the menu. Service was great, the server(s) were friendly and accommodating. The venue was relaxing especially was impressed with the horse carving on the wall in the main dining area. I would recommend Cafe Efendi to family and friends, this was our second visit in 2 weeks.
This is a very authentic Turkish restaurant in both food and ambiance.
The service is professional and friendly.
This is my favorite restaurant!
