We went to Cazbar for a Girls' Night (6 of us) and to watch the bellydancer. Samira was an incredible dancer and very engaging! Wonderful! The ambiance of Cazbar was terrific and very chic with ethnic touches. Our food was delicious and elegantly plated. The service staff was friendly, but not present very much. Dirty dishes piled up on the table and sat for almost an hour. No one came to ask if we wanted dessert, coffee or more drinks (we went somewhere else finally!). We had to flag someone down to ask for more water, as well as waiting for more than 15 minutes for the check after asking for it at the end of the night. Though I would 100% go back to Cazbar, and many aspects of the experience were truly excellent, the wait staff was not up to par with the price of the food/drinks, or the overall vibe of the very upscale place. Make sure you give them plenty of time and just keep asking if you want something. The food, atmosphere and dancers are wonderful, though, and worth it.

I've been here a few times. The service and food make visiting CAZBAR always feel like a unique experience. However, when you come expect to spend a pretty penny.

The food was fair but the service can be improved. I made an advanced reservation and requested a specific section of the restaurant but this was not honored. I would expect that if they can't honor a request they should let me know in advance. On the other hand, to tell me to take the table that they had or leave is rude.

My family and I wanted a night out were we could have a bit of entertainment that was high energy, but not our energy. This place was fabulous. The food and drinks are plentiful and super tasty, the staff are welcoming, helpful, attentive and lively. The dancers are so fun, they beacons us to join in but we're not insistent. We will be back!!!

What an absolutely AMAZING experience! The ambiance is elegant, exotic, and just so beautiful. The menu explained everything about each dish and each drink. We had the Turkish pizza appetizer- it was SO delicious with wonderful flavors and textures. The drink, the Wild Turk, was a delicious mix without being too strong. The “Mixed Grill” platter was a fantastic opportunity to try several meats with Turkish seasoning, along with the salad. We all tried to figure out what made the salad so delicious- must be a very special olive oil! We had the Coban Kavurma which was indescribably delicious- the seasonings were perfection- nothing spicy, just a blend of tastes and sauce, and I didn’t want it to be finished! Our server was wonderful- she was attentive, enjoyed our enthusiasm, and made sure we had everything we needed. The biggest surprise was that we didn’t know about the belly dancing! The restaurant was packed, and we felt like it was one big party; everyone was clapping and cheering- so much fun! Cazbar transports you to another place entirely- what an amazing and wonderful experience!

Everything was great, excepting a few tiny glitches…. Primarily the music, though wonderful, was a bit loud. Made conversation a touch difficult.

This is my third time at Cazbar. My first time the food was great but the service was incredibly slow. This time the food was great and the service was also great. The restaurant was almost full which made me appreciate the quick service even more. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Visited on a Tuesday for lunch with my colleagues from work. The waitress handed us Samsung tablets to order our food which was pretty cool! The ambiance was great, music was traditional and overall amazing experience. The food came out quickly and everything was delicious. Will definitely be back!

Food was absolutely exceptional. Bread made in-house was extremely memorable, every bite was cooked perfectly and deeply flavorful. The kitchen was backed up by our 8:00pm reservation - no idea if it’s a common occurrence. The front of house was hustling, but we waited for a while for our entrees. Standouts were our server’s recommendations on the menu, great ambiance, and of course the food - we’ll go back again for sure, maybe a little earlier in the evening next time.

A bit too noisy at times. Food was very good, enjoyed by all. Our server, Maddie is first class. She is smart, helpful, pleasant and very accurate in taking orders and making sure everything was correct.
Belly dancer was entertaining.

This was our first time at the Columbia location. The food is great. We sat in the library, which was pretty quiet, but the main part of the restaurant seemed a bit loud. We will be returning.

Delicious food, friendly staff. They have belly dancing shows on the weekends. And during the shows it is very loud/you cannot have a conversation. But it is only for a short time.

Rated 5 stars because overall everything was great.
The only complaint, well it was temporary, was the music with the belly dancer.
We were in the main room and it was on Father's Day.
Wished they had thought to turn down a couple of notches and that would have made it more pleasant. That lasted almost 30 minutes.
We had finished our meal before it started.
The trio of desserts is well worth ending your meal with and all three were very good.
Being in a strip mall my expectations were not high, but this place exceeded them.
Oh, and I"m sorry do not remember his name, waiter was outstanding.
