Every dish was generous and delicious. Just walking in the door and smelling the wonderful aroma was mouth-watering.

A bit disappointed with this visit....we have eaten there before and had a great meal but this was not the same. Serve was NOT attentive at all...no bread offered or drink refills offered. Food was a little on the dry side.

We were disappointed that the belly dancers only before at 9pm. It is not clearly stated on the website, you have to read reviews to know that. Service was slow and he had zero personality. Was cool to use the tablets as the menu to see the pictures, but we felt rushed.

Hostess could be a bit friendlier and smile more. Music blasting during belly dancer. Too, too loud! Food was very good! We had lamb prepared three ways which was tasty. Pumpkin soup was average. Stuffed eggplant very good. Baklava packaged and not worth ordering.

My husband and I always ordered the sultan dinner for 2 . The food was tasty, the assortment of appetizers was delicious.
The grilled meat platter had more chicken but no lamb ground or chunks as we would have liked.
Wish they hadn’t toned down on the spices .
All in all , it was a satisfying meal.

The food was great! The service, however, was terrible. We waited about 10 minutes before our drink and food order was taken. Even though everything came out quickly, our waiter never came by to ask how the food was, never came back to refill our water or to ask if we wanted more drinks, and brought our check instead of asking if we wanted coffee and/or dessert. We were planning on getting dessert but ended up not getting if after our check was brought.

I hate when I have to write something negative about a place, so I will start with the strong parts--beautiful place, although it's quite crowded when you come in--narrow, no real "reception" place, but nonetheless, nice. Food was excellent, servers were kind and polite and helpful.

The bad was that food comes out whenever they have it ready--we were still on our apps and that's when the entrees suddenly appeared. So now the table was really crowded with plates and food, and it was uncomfortable to eat.

I had read that their soda was there own blend, but when queried if they have coke and sprite, they said, yes--and they didn't, so a little disappointed about that.

I had told them it was my niece's bday, and they did nothing for dessert with a candle or something to mark the occasion.

So we did love the excellent food, and the guys were nothing but polite and friendly--it was just the little things that annoyed me.

Oh, and don't park at 16 W. Saratoga St if you're going at night. The garage shuts down at apparently 7pm or 730pm. Thank goodness I had 1) another passenger and 2) internet access to look up the instructions for getting out of the garage after the grate doors are down, else I would have lost my dukey if I was trapped downtown.

Food is good and worth the value. Very authentic Turkish experience. Service was a bit slow and they weren’t that busy, but other than that, it was a good experience. Some of the dishes were alright, but some were really good so you just have to know what to order. Would go again for the kebabs

The food was very flavorful, came out hot, and there was not a long wait. The entertainment was also great as the dancer put on several performances and got the crowd moving and grooving. A great date night or girls' night.

Ambiance and food were fine. However noise level was a bit loud. Our party likes to converse, but we all had difficulty hearing each other. The belly dancing was entertaining, but it could have been a bit longer on entertainment.

FAVORITE RESTAURANT BY FAR. All the employees are exceptional and bring out dinner well timed so there will be no waiting around hungry for an hour. Belly dancing on fridays, very beautiful. CazBar also has beautiful accent Turkish art and pottery.

An excellent and quite authentic Turkish restaurant. The dishes are all exquisitely prepared and really delicious. The Lamb Three Ways is a tour de force of both Turkish cooking and how amazing lamb can be. The waitress went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and were happy with our dishes.

A friend recommended the restaurant, I arrived at 8 and asked for a table for two, the young woman looked me up and down ask if I had a reservation. Which is normal , I responded no, and asked if I needed one, she said yes, I looked in and the place kind of empty. I stepped out and made an immediate reservation on open table for 815, there were plenty others. Beyond that mild blowing experience and slow service, the rest of the evening went well.

The atmosphere here is friendly and welcoming. They have a fairly extensive menu for those with certain dietary restrictions, such as vegetarians or vegans. The imam bayildi was delicious, as were all of their cold (vegetarian) mezes. The manti was not only tasty, but also quite authentic, according to a Turkish friend at the table. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu!

Overall we really enjoyed our meal! The servers were very nice, but seemed a bit disorganized. We were there for an early dinner on a Thursday, and when we arrived were the only customers there. It took a while for anyone to come to take our orders, and at one point they brought us another table's dessert that we had not ordered (they then took it from where it had been sitting on our table to the correct table, which we thought was odd, since they didn't know if we had touched it or not). However, the food was delicious! We had a number of appetizers which were all extremely good and a chicken entree that was very tender and flavorful. So despite the somewhat uneven service, we would definitely go back!

This restaurant is more of a share plate kinda meal. All mezze plates are really small. Kinda expensive for the amount of food. All in all pretty good Turkish food.
