Great lamb dishes, ask the server for a recommendation of Turkish vines, excellent pairing. The manti was a disappointment, otherwise great food and atmosphere.

We went for a Sunday lunch Birthday. The food was outstanding, so fresh, great spices. Meat was not dried out and made way ahead, it was very tender. I would defiantly go back bringing friends. Out server was very attentive and did a great job!

Beautifully decorated but too dark and loud to see our food. Food was mediocre, at best. Bread and sheesh kabob were memorable. Overall average experience.

Food so good and well seasoned, an array of wines to die and excellent belly dancers.

Management picked a nice spot and excellent ideal locale here. Enough options to both eat in and take some for home afterwards.

Outstanding waiter/waitress service from beginning to end, and very prompt to checking on their patrons at all times.

Columbia has a gem in its sights, and hope they get to expand further down into the DC region someday.

Made reservations a week in advance for our anniversary and made 2 special requests. The request were to be seated close to the belly dancing show and I pre-ordered a desert with the added notation anniversary.

We were seated the so far away from the show along with the waiter and belly dancer showing up to our table with the desert and both saying happy birthday 😒

I thought the cold mezzo would have been a larger sized order for three people shared.
Drinks were returned the taste was not good.
Lamb was good but basic
Rice was good but basic
Food server was good
I expected more interesting flavors but I can get better at a fast food Greek place. Will not return because price is a bit high for the food

I love Cazbar! This was our third visit and tried some new dishes (NEW FAVORITES!). I ordered the Adenken Iksanden (best I can remember the spelling) but it was a lamb/beef mixture over bread topped with warm yougart garlic butter sauce. Best thing I've ever tasted!!! Also loved the Manti and Calamari.

It was wonderful. We celebrated a colleague moving out of town by having happy hour/dinner in the bar area. Everyone was wonderful. From the moment we walked in the door - til we left, we were very well taken care of!

This is the best Turkish restaurant in the Baltimore-DC area. Food is always tasty and service is excellent. Our waiter was very attentive to our large group.

If you like lamb and Mediterranean food, thus is the best so far. We ate at this place at least 4 times so far. From the ambience, servers and food are rated 5 stars.

Awful experience. Very rude server who demanded all the people in the party to get at least one entree and cited their boss as an excuse! Worst experience ever. Never again.
