Dolma and hot mixed appetizers were wonderful. All our entrees were $19. The meat kebabs were tasty but could have been more tender. My braised lamb shank was super tender and delicious.

Even with obvious short staffing and no bartender, the timing and delivery of the cocktails, appetizer plate, hunkar begendi, and salmon kebab was very good. Every one of the mixed cold appetizers and the two main dishes were absolutely delicious.

Always outstanding, delicious food with impeccable service. European standards of waiting to give you your bill because they understand you may linger with your company. We’ve already made reservations for Christmas Eve. Will be lovely to enjoy their ambience and stroll to Sundance Square all decorated for the holidays.

My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here and it will not be our last visit. The menu offers a lot of great choices that made it difficult to choose, but we ultimately decided on the salmon kebab and the branzino. Thoughtfully prepared and seasoned with great spices but not salty. If you are looking for something a little different please try this place, as everything was spot on, from the hummus to the baklava. The grilled pita and olives are the perfect beginning and the not overly sweet baklava was the perfect ending to a great evening.

This place is awesome. The service friendly and prompt. The food - loved it. Definitely recommend the Shepard’s Salad and Lamb Shish. Had a great time - a real gem of Downtown Fort Worth. If you’re after a different spin on the grill - then this is your place. Highly recommended.

Food was great! Ambience was great and comfortable. Table seating was nice, and service was great.

The website said complementary valet was going to be offered, but there was not. Had to pay $25 for parking across the street.

We have been to the Istanbul Grill many times. We love the white table cloth ambiance with beautiful fixtures and a warm feel. The hummus is creamy and delicious and their house made pita is the best i have ever had. I always have the kuufta (Turkish meatballs.) The meatballs are grilled to perfection with an amazing rice. A combo of beef/lamb (and i don't care for lamb usually) is a must have. My wife has the Eskindir - sliced beef with an amazing sauce and that same great rice. Service is friendly and responsive. We love dining here.

Our server, named Figen, was very attentive, sweet, and knew the menu extremely well. She made our dining experience extremely enjoyable. Portions sizes were excellent we wanted dessert but knew we were too full so she gave us advice on the best take out desserts verse desserts that were better consumed in the restaurant. The drink we ordered were the perfectly prepared smooth and with enough spirits to lighten our evening from the long week.

Of all the fantastic places to eat in Fort Worth this place was a gem.

Great menu variety.
Appreciated that the all the tables were set, although social distancing was maintained. It gives the impression you're dining in a moderately full room rather then a 'half-closed' restaurant.
