We have crafted a rich mosaic of cultures and traditions from our homeland to bring a taste of Turkey to Fort Worth. A place where the wonder and excitement of visiting another culture meets the simple elegance of fine dining. We take pride in sharing our culture through authentic Mediterranean meals made with the healthiest, highest quality ingredients.

The service was impeccable. If the wait staff appeared to be delayed, the maitre de appeared to move service along. The two appetizers we shared were variable. The white beans and peppers was very good, the philo dough wraps with pastrami were an innovation that sounded better than it was. Our entrees - chicken Tava And Hunker Bendgen - were outstanding.
Pre theater dinner. Great food. Convenient to the theater
Highly recommend this restaurant…great value! Good food & service. Understand they will validate parking in a nearby garage.
Great service, food was delicious and waitress was very attentive.
Great food and great service.
Great food, fun place to celebrate a birthday. They were so kind to let us bring a cake and even brought it out to serve with candles and all! Delicious food!
The food and staff here are excellent. There was very little masking among the staff and no attempt by the establishment to allow proper social distancing among the diners (patio dining has never been available here). Keep that in mind if you select this restaurant.
The waiter was apparently very new, but very sweet. The fellow who filled our water glasses sloshed a lot of water out of one glass onto the table and didn’t wipe it up. Since there was a big puddle creeping over toward my niece, we asked a young woman setting other tables to give us an extra napkin. The food was good, but I ate too much. Not your fault, but maybe next time I’ll have a salad instead of a heavier appetizer, and split the dessert. Tiny entranceway and a lot of people jammed together there. Very nice bathrooms. We will return.
First time to visit. Enjoyed the entire experience. Food portions were just right. The lamb kabobs were tender. We’ll be back!
Wow...a great surprise in every way. Loved every part of the night...and enough leftovers for another dinner. Thanks
This place made our New Year’s eve great! The moussaka and the grilled salmon were delicious !
Ambiance was romantic with the candles and Turkish lighting.
Service was quick and professional.
First class restaurant 😋
Great service. Food was presented in a very professional way. This is a chef-driven establishment—makes all the difference in the world.
We had an absolutely delicious meal but the real highlight of the evening was our server, Kevin. He was so friendly and had such a great personality. This was our first visit so we had a lot of questions but Kevin was very knowledgeable. My husband had the gyro and I had the Turkish meatballs. Everything was seasoned perfectly. We finished the night with a delightful cup of Turkish tea. We will definitely be back!
Nicew place, excelent food, good value. Worth the price
Best service i bc Fort Worth
Wonderful Xmas eve dinner with the family. One had just flown in from Spain. Everything was awesome and the Turkish Flan at the end amazing. Our server Nicki was perfect. Many of our friends were at surrounding tables (unplanned) that made it this an even more special eve. Thanks.
This place is great especially if you're working on becoming plant based!! BUT, huge fail is the falafel are NOT served with tahini (plant based) but with tziziki (milk based). Why would a Mediterranean restaurant not have tahini?! Crazy lack of planning
We had a FABULOUS time!!! The food was delicious and the service was perfect!! Thank you or such a great evening!
Our food, service and experience was fantastic! We ordered Kabobs and they were phenomenal. We can’t wait to go back
We went for date night and had the absolute best meal and experience! The food was so delicious, the wine suggestion was perfect, and our service could not have been better. We can't wait to go back.
We had a great time trying some new foods. The appetizers were delicious. The service was great especially for a busy weekend night.
Menus were placed at our table when we were walked to it, but we didn't know there was a drink/bar menu on the reverse side of the food menu until after we had ordered. Suggest placing the drink/bar side up and, upon their first visit to the table, instructing the wait staff to tell patrons food choices are on the back side. The food was excellent: red snapper for my wife and lamb chops for me! The noise level was VERY high and inconsistent with a relaxing dinner.
Lamb chops were delicious
I'm excited to come back and try other dishes
Great food; service was fair.
The restaurant is small so the tables were quite close together. Regardless, the food and service was fantastic so we will be back.
Great experience. Very impressed with the thoughtfulness of the hostess (Resv. 12/10 - 6:45), walked in there were a few people ahead in line. Hostess greeted and asked if we had a reservation? When I said yes, she took us immediately to our table and said this was a great table she was holding for us rather than the folks that were ahead of us. Very thoughtful, never had anyone at a restaurant when it come to seating use big picture mentality. Our waiter was equally thoughtful and considerate. Really nice guy. Food was excellent and the entire experience was perfect. Set the stage for the entire evening. Thank you all for the way you run the business.
Great food & service. Need to add more veggies to the entrees
The restaurant is modern and comfortable. The service was good. However the food, although reasonably tasty was not at all authentic. I had the Moussaka which was bland and nothing like any Moussaka I’ve had in Greece or Turkey. On the whole a little underwhelmed with the night.
If you enjoy mediterranean food, eat here. My husband and I love it, so we both ordered traditional Turkish dishes, and both were wonderful. The service is friendly and professional. We will be back.
Wonderful experience for my friends, my wife and me. Got our table very close to on time on a busy night, so that was great, the drinks from the bar were well done, the variety hot appetizers were great, the soups and salads were delicious and the entrees were amazing along with delicious deserts! We got plenty of personal attention from the owner and our waiter turned out to be the owners son. Such a great experience for all involved. This type of experience is what makes me dislike chain restaurants...why eat at a chain when you can dine at a family restaurant and enjoy the culture of another country!?!?
Exceptional! Definitely going back.
We had a wonderful time. Service and food was great.
Thank you so much and happy holidays.
Wonderful food and fantastic service. Charlie was our server both days we went and he took very good care of us! We're definitely coming back.
Food is always fresh and well prepared. Consistently delicious!
Everything was excellent except the naan which came out burnt. Asked for new ones and they were immediately set on the table. Service was a little slow but it was Thanksgiving. It was a great choice having lamb instead of turkey. Really an amazing restaurant.
Great food and service!
Very good value for what you get.
My only complaint was why would you need a tv in this restaurant? To their credit, at least it was muted. But I look for restaurants WITHOUT TVs. If I want to watch a game, I’ll go to a sports bar.
This was our second visit to the Istanbul Restaurant And again the service and food were both exceptional. Our new favorite place to eat.
Very hard to hear. Acoustics were very poor.
Food was excellent, the only issue was slow initial service from the waitress and then delivery from the bar after ordering drinks. I think they may be understaffed like everyone else at the moment. We will definitely be going back though.
Istanbul Restaurant is a great place to eat. The food is absolutely wonderful. Thank goodness it didn't have to close because of Covid. !!!!!!
