Upon entering the restaurant I was happy to see they were not crowded. As we were being seated the hostess sat us ( it was just me and a friend) at a very small table. Because there was one right behind us that was bigger I politely asked could we sit there. I was told we were a party of 2 so we could NOT have that table. Even if no one else was waiting to be seated and they weren’t busy at all. I let it go thinking maybe reservations we made so ok. But as we had finished our dinner and were getting ready to leave a older couple were seated at the table I requested. A COUPLE as in 2 people. At the table that wasn’t for 2 or so I was told. And they were still not super busy. The experience wasn’t a good one as I’ve never been denied such a simple request. I asked to speak to the manager but he never came over and I just paid and left. The food is just okay and with service and treatment we received I will NOT return. ( picture included of couple who was sat at the “bigger” table ours was half that size)

It was our first time visiting Cazbar and the ambiance was amazing. The staff was friendly. Our waitress was very welcoming. It was my fiance and I anniversary. The belly dancer came over with some dessert and wished us a happy anniversary and took a picture with me. It was overall a good experience

Hoping for a romantic place to take my girlfriend after 8pm on a Saturday night. Instead found numerous tables with screaming kids under the age of five. The place was packed and the noise level was so loud it was hard to talk across the table to my girlfriend. But it was the poor service that really killed it for us. After we ordered, we never saw our waitress again. Had to hunt her down to get the check. Otherwise, building was cool, food was good, and dancer was cool.

Cazbar was everything we expected and much more. The ambience was warm and inviting. There were quite a few people there, but the social distancing was perfect. All the staff were covid safe and also incredibly thoughtful. We tried several drinks and had the calamari as an appetizer. It was perfect! Then we got the full course for 2 people. It is worth the price and you will have leftovers for the week!

The food at Cazbar was superb. The service left a lot to be desired. We ordered the Icli Kofte and Sugara Borek for appetizers. Both were really good. We ordered for the main entrees the Doner Kebap, The Adana Iskender, and the Coban Kaveruma. All three were absolutely delish. I especially enjoyed the Kaveruma and Iskender. For dessert, I would highly recommend the kunefe. It was marvelous. When I first saw it, it seemed undercooked in areas and burnt in others. But the taste was divine. I would have loved if it was warmer. We also had Turkey tea which was great. The Decor and ambience of the place was beautiful. The chandeliers reflected this beautiful red light that made the place seem perfect for a girls night out. Music was also nice. The noise level was perfect. Not too loud to infringe on our conversation.

The only downside of the entire experience was the service. It took about 20 min for a server to come greet us at the table. I was fasting and this was my one meal. At one point, the server came, quickly plopped water and walked away - no hello or greeting. Then 15 min later he just came and asked us what we’d like to order. We ordered appetizers, drinks, and our main entree as we were fearful he wouldn’t come back for another 20 min. Unfortunately my friend’s drink had to be ordered three more times as the server kept forgetting to bring it. It was girls night out and the three of us were excited but also bummed at the reception. The food took some time to come but when it did it was really delicious as I said above. The service got a bit better over the two hours we spent there. I realize the server had another large party he was servicing but it still did not feel good to be ignored or treated as second best during the duration of our time there. I’m not one to put a bad review, but I did want to give feedback as the food WAS really good. I can’t imagine what they will do though if the place was full! I can’t imagine the service being any slower.

Oh emmm geeee. This place is off the chain!!! Where has Cazbar been hiding our whole life?! Amazing AMAZING food, incredible service, awesome belly dancing show at night, and great music that makes you feel like your in Turkey. This place does not disappoint. On another note, I ended up purchasing a gift card for a family member, I accidentally dropped it, it was later found, and the manager held it for me until I came the next day to pick it up. I was so thankful. We are going back again this weekend to try more of the menu. So delish!

The food and the service were outstanding. Since our visit was fir a birthday, we ordered the Sultan’s Feast and it was more than we could eat! There were so many things to try and everything was fresh and well prepared. Plus, there was enough left for a couple of meals! The staff even put a sparkler in the baklava for the birthday boy! Thank you fir a lively experience. We will be back!

It was a double date night for me, my partner and another couple. We had been to the location in Baltimore, so this was our first time at the Columbia location.

The decor is beautiful with equally matched ambiance. Having already been vaccinated, I was less concerned about spacing between tables, but I would say that it was less than 6 feet (for anyone curious).

The food came out in a reasonable amount of time, and was quite good. Very filling, rich and aromatic. No complaints at all.

Plus the belly dancer entertainment added a lovely touch to the evening.

I would certainly come back.
