The story of this intimate Turkish tapas and wine bar began ten years ago when the Bolukbasi brothers opened Mezè in Adams Morgan. Shortly after its opening Mezè became a neighborhood favorite as a spot for authentic Turkish cuisine and lively entrainment. Mezè’s success and loyal customers inspired the Bolukbasi brothers to open a new venture in the Capital city.

The answer was not too far from Mezè in Dupont Circle. Dupont has always been an area focused on food, friendly atmosphere and healthier living. At Ezmè, our customers will taste this combined experience one bite at a time.

Great experience at Ezme. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Don't miss the scallops! Phenomenal! A bunch of different options - land, sea, meat.

Turkish tasting menu was excellent; accompanying wine selections very nice; service prompt, knowledgeable and amiable; valet parking efficient. Atmosphere casual, with tables somewhat close together -- good for friends' get-together, probably not ideal for business discussions.

Everything was very good. But the rice pudding was the best that we have ever had!

Ezme consistently provides great Mediterranean food...fresh ingredients; good wine values. It is a little in need of some new furniture, but the staff is wonderful. You can actually hear your dinner companions.

Every one of the dishes we ordered was carefully prepared delicious. We are vegetarians so we appreciated dishes that were healthy and very tasty. The service was excellent, very attentive but not hovering or pushy. Ambience was very pleasant. Good selection of affordable wines, including an excellent Turkish wine. Would definitely return and recommend it to friends.

Our first time eating here, and it was delicious! The salmon kebabs were very good - I highly recommend these. The cold yogurt soup and hummus dip were very good too. My client had the pancakes too and said they were yummy. I will definitely go back.

Had a lovely meal and evening. Met with out-of-town friends and we ended up being there for two hours. While the restaurant was busy, there were always a few empty tables and the staff did not try to push us out. The food was delicious and their wine recommendation was great.
WIll go back!

Amazing meal. Amazing service. Incredible value.

Shrimp stew was out of this world. Rack of lamb was top notch. Zucchini pancakes are beautiful and delicious. Filo dough dessert did not disappoint. Turkish coffee capped of the meal.

Hospitality was something to behold.

A DC treasure.

We celebrated a birthday here a few days ago. The staff are attentive, and worked with us around dietary preferences. The menu choices are varied and nicely presented.It hadn't been clear that many if not all of the non-appetizer options were small plates until the server explained this; I hadn't planned on spending as much as e did but was happy to be flexible given the occasion.
My friend had the lentil soup and a large salad, bot of which were delicious. Lots of first-rate bread arrived along with olive oil and vinegar, which my gluten friendly buddy polished off during the course of the meal.
We were encouraged to order 2-3 small plates, but I'm glad I only ordered one. The first was grilled lamb ad figs, and it was heavenly-perfectly cooked, juicy and the grilled figs made quite a mouth party. There was a generous pour of Prosceco. But the chicken patties plus my side of potatoes proved to be way too much food, and the patties were like rocks.
Unless you're starving, start slow. For some reason my friend was served his soup and salad right away, while my dinner of course took a bit longer, so we ate together separately.
The ambience is warm, the staff are suer and almost of al the food was perfect-I'm planing on returning the next time I'm in DC.
