This was our second dinner at Casbar. We started with a Spinach Artichoke spread that was served with delicious bread. For my main course I ordered manti, which are small dumplings that superficially resemble gnocchi but are very different from gnocchi and also different from Uzbek manti. Casbar's manti consist of beef wrapped in a thin layer of dough and served hot in a yoghurt-based sauce. I've never eaten anything like it before, but I hope to eat Turkish manti again soon.

We came from Texas and stumbled upon Cazbar. We got in for the show on Saturday and had an absolute blast. The food was delicious and the service was great. A must if you've never had Turkish.

This is one of the few places in Baltimore where you can enjoy authentic middle eastern food. The atmosphere is excellent. A highly skilled belly dancer performs a couple of times during the evening, dancing authentically among the tables. Food was delicious! Great service. Good atmosphere. Quiet enough for conversation.

This was our first visit to Cazbar--the first and only Turkish restaurant in Baltimore--and we loved it! It's cozy, the ambiance is nice (romantic even). The service is very attentive and personable. The food is outstanding! A very nice, comprehensive menu, full of specials. The menu gives the diner a lot of options (e.g., small plates or meze, more all-in-one dinner specials, combos, etc.). My wife ordered the moussaka and loved it. Very authentic. I had an interesting Turkish salad that combined arugula with various herbs and spices, a lemony vinaigrette dressing and topped off with two ground beef-lamb skewers that were delicious. The before-lunch spirits pours were very generous (bonus points!). My wife had Baklava for dessert and enjoyed it; it wasn't as rich and "sticky" as the Greek versions we've had in the past. It was lighter. All in all, Cazbar kicked off a great weekend. We'll most definitely return.

I have been to Caz Bar a few times but this time was my favorite. I was catching up with a friend and felt like the restaurant was the perfect place to do so. She has never been to Caz Bar and absolutely loved it as well! The food was incredible as always and our server was very attentive to our needs.

This was my first time eating here, heard they had good Turkish food. It was super good, very authentic tasting. The interior is kind of fun too, dimly lit with colorful lanterns. Our group ordered some of the sampler type appetizers and a bunch of dishes and shared. We liked everything, and the Turkish wine is really good too. I was mad at myself for not saving room for dessert, maybe next time. Oh and there was something about belly dancers but didn’t get the information, could be fun for a group outing.

The food was great, but the server was a bit overworked. When he was with us, he was attentive and wonderful, but he seemed to get called away for long periods of time so we didn't see him enough at certain intervals. He was fairly new so maybe he hasn't figured out how to best manage his time, but it seemed that this might be more of a management problem that he might have had too many (or too large) tables.

But I don't want this review to end on the negative because, overall, our experience was great. We weren't in a rush so the slower service didn't matter too much. My wife got a mezze platter, and I got the lamb three ways. Everything we got was delicious, and each of the three lamb dishes were very different so it wasn't like getting a lot of the same thing.

We will definitely be back.

We love Middleadtern Food. The mezze was excellent. Our entrees just fair. Belly dancing was great. However, avoid the top floor. The music was blaring so loudly, with all tables around us holding their ears or leaving because management would not turn diwn the volume. They lost dessert and drink sales. Horrible end to our date night.

Everything was great upon our arrival and when the food came. My only issue was when I unraveled my silverware it was wrapped in hair. Other than that, it was very nice.

Went on a Saturday night, so expected some crowding, though there isn’t anywhere for people to wait to be seated. You’re right next to someone’s table, pressed against the wall to let waitstaff pass, or standing outside. The belly dancing was fun, could use a quieter, smoother transition into it. Also, pay attn. to your paper bill. A 20% gratuity is added - not suggested - for 5 people before you’re handed a tablet with which you could accidentally add another tip. Our server was good, not dbl tip good.

We had 4 couples meeting up for New Years Eve dinner before going to see some music - the ambience was entrancing, the food was delicious, the table set-up was great for the number of people, and the prices were reasonable. Service was great, especially for a holiday, and everyone left happy! Our only complaint was that the music was a bit too loud (we were seated under a speaker) and the staff did turn it down a bit for us. Wonderful all around!
