This is our 2nd time visiting this restaurant before going to a performance at Bass Hall. Once again, the service was impeccable! We were greeted at the door and they remembered us from our previous visit. The lamb shank was positively the best I have ever eaten - an absolute must!

Everything about this place is wonderful. The service and food are exceptional and the wine is reasonably priced unlike other downtown restaurants. We have been here several times and will go back!

Nice classic white tablecloths and Great location walking distance to Sundance square. Parked in free garage behind P.F. Chang’s. The handmade dolmas were the best I’ve ever had and the braised lamb shank fell off the bone. Extensive wine list and pleasant staff.

Food was excellent; good selection. Very traditional, so it was as expected. Very nice atmosphere. Noise level was very nice, but it was early on a Thursday evening. Really liked that the valet service is also available for this restaurant, as well as the ones across the street. House wine is also very nice.

We loved the concept in North Dallas, and Plano. What a treat to find this one in Fort Worth. Quick train ride from Grapevine, a nice brisk walk to Sundance Square and BOOM! THEY RANOUT OF Efes, a fave Turkish beer, but everything else was awesome!

An upscale experience with genuine Turkish food. Well priced for the value. Good service, generous portions, good food. The live music was tastefully subtle, not hand sign level loud as it can be sometimes. Two negatives: tables were a little close for comfort, and the parking across the way was even more cramped, though free with a receipt. Will return.

Love the food and friendly service. My friend and I have go-to favorites and have never been disappointed. This is one of the few places to find beautifully cooked lamb dishes as well as other Mediterranean favorites. The hummus appetizer is excellent as are the zucchini pancakes. The menu and wine list has something for everyone. The location is just across the street from a Sundance valet location, two blocks from Sundance Square, and a short walk to Bass Hall.

Had a good time until my waiter decided that talking to the female waitress was more important than taking our dessert order. The manager that I told broke them up son he could take care of his customers. Normally I tip very well especially in this environment. Not this time.

Everything is exactly what you'd expect for a downtown restaurant with $20ish plates. It was nice, the food was delicious (and filling enough to be worth the price), the service was great, the restaurant was well organized and running extremely smoothly. It was great for our special occassion dinner and we will probably be back for more special occassions in the future.

Excellent experience from beginning to end, which says a lot, not only for a Friday night, but Valentine's Day to boot. Fun atmosphere, delicious cuisine, and attentive service. We will absolutely be back!

We reserved a table for the evening, and were seated immediately. The menu is amazing! There are plant based, healthy selections, deliciously prepared. Our server, Suru was beyond amazing and we even spoke Sam, the owner. Definitely found a new Fort Worth Favorite; and will be recommending to all of our friends!

Devine! We discovered this spot on a whim one night when we had a change of dinner plans and so glad we did! We keep going back. Unique, rich flavors and a friendly wait staff who make great recommendations from the menu. The spicy ezme is a great starter!

This is our favorite place downtown. The food is always spectacular and the service good. For what you get,it is a great bargain. This time we had the hot appetizer sampler and split the beef kabob. Both of them were really interesting from a spice perspective. We enjoyed everything and made it to the symphony in time.

I had the fish on garbanzo beans and spinach. Very bland, little spinach and $24. Not worth it. Service was great though

A small group of us were on a business trip and were looking for a new place for dinner. We were extremely pleased with the service, location, and especially the food. It was completely delicious and everyone in our party was extremely pleased.

The food and service was wonderful. The lamb was cooked and seasoned very well. The Cabbage rolls reminded me of my mother's food. A real plus, is the complimentary Valet. Coupling the Beethoven at 250 and dinner was a great idea by someone. Worked out great. I'll be back.
