Beautiful decor, very upscale looking even though in a strip center. Appetizers were excellent, 3way lamb dish was overcooked. Otherwise, food was good. Entertainment excellent.

With the Baltimore location under renovation, I wanted to try this place and see how it compared. The decorations and overall ambience was quite lovely, the food however left something to be desired. Several of the dishes I ordered were either under-salted or did not have any seasoning at all. This is the only disappointment. The service was great, no complaints at all!

Cazbar has a pretty interior, and a lively atmosphere. We were seated promptly. I thought our server did an excellent job. As the food is Turkish, you need to be thoughtful about what you order for dinner. I had a salad topped with salmon, and it was good. A little after nine, the dancer arrived. She was very entertaining.

Enjoyed ourselves very much. Food very good. Music VERY loud even when the belly dancer was not performing. Tables were a little too close for our comfort for distancing to protect from COVID. Glad restaurant appears to be so successful in this location.

This was my first time in this restaurant.. as the review said it was loud and it was REALLY loud ! I felt like I was at a club or concert . I think they should lower the music a little so people can actually hear themselves than yelling over the music . Where we was sitted the table was very small and slanted.. like I said it was my first time . The food was Great overall !! At the end of the night the server just tipped himself 18% .. I was going to tip regardless it just caught me off guard ..

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The kids love the pizza and the adults love the drinks, kabobs and other meals. The chicken kabobs are moist and delicious and the portion sizes are generous. My husband likes the lamb 3 ways or meat platter. He can eat a lot of meat and he's never disappointed. There are also some great drinks, like the habenjero lemon crush and the pomegranate margarita.

This was our 4th time to Cazbar. We took a few friends to experience Turkish food and see the show. We were seated promptly and the place was fully packed at 7:30. Drinks and hot bread came out timely however service got slower afterwards. We had to track our server down several times for drink and water refills. We ordered the Sultans platter and some had Lamb dishes. Mezze of multiple samples was delicious. The platter was good size and pretty tasty but all the beef portions were dry and overcooked. Wish they would add some lamb to the platter. If you’re looking for a quite evening this is not place. Music is lively and energetic and we love the decor. 20% tip was automatically added for party of 6 which in this case didn’t match the service provided.

Firstly, it’s an absolutely stunning restaurant! We were greeted by the owner so warmly (Which doesn’t often happen with two small kids) and taken to our table. Our Waitress came immediately with water and was very patient as we figured out our apps order. The food was delicious. They have a great kids menu which comes with a drink and dessert. It was a great experience from beginning to end! We will most certainly be returning here often!

Food was tasty and right size portions. Nice vibe at this place. A little on the noisy side but good. The only issue was our server, who, although nice, dropped a sauce container while cleaning up the table onto my son and the table. She didn't clean it up or come back with a rag but just left it there. That was pretty disappointing. We got a napkin from an adjoining table to clean it up. But loved the food etc.

Great place for a girlfriends dinner. Belly dancing is at 9pm, she does rounds around the restaurant and it was fun to see ladies get up and dance with her. Food came quickly, was fresh, and was delicious. Drinks were great too.

Food was delicious, free bread came with food not before but that's ok. Portions were good but better for salad and entrees, than the vegan entree one of our party members got. Server and other staff were professional and great.

We go there regularly and tried many dishes. I honestly can’t pick a favorite since they are all absolutely delicious. From the appetizers to the main meal and the deserts, you can’t go wrong. The Restaurant is very nicely decorated and always clean. And just as important, the service is excellent. I can recommend the Belly Dancing show, lots of fun but I would recommend to eat before it starts since it can get a bit loud and distracting.

First time there - father son dinner. My boy loved it, I was impressed as well. Our server was fantastic - she recommended things that were great. I had the ‘sampler’ and I’m not sure what my son had. lol

Good food and a really cool atmosphere. Next time we’re staying for the belly dancers!
