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.

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.

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.

I have lived and travelled in the ME and Istanbul provides great meals! My vegetarian plate was excellent as was my wife's chicken dish. Best restaurant of this type in Fort Worth.

Love this restaurant and it’s menu. Service is friendly and helpful. We were there early to enjoy a good dinner before attending the theater. Food was delicious, hot, and freshly prepared. Even after it became fairly busy, the noise didn’t distract from our dinner or conversation. We were seated in pleasant, clean surroundings in which to enjoy dinner.

Excellent food. We ordered salmon and branzino--both delicious. The Turkish flan was to-die-for. And we topped it all off with a wonderful coffee. Service was great--attentive, but never intrusive.

Was here for an anniversary. Ambient noise was so loud we couldn’t hear each other and used sign language some with the waitress because I could never hear anything she said as she spoke so softly.
Food was just okay. Ordered lamb kebab and it was over cooked.
Was also assessing restaurant for an upcoming business dinner for about 20 people and would not schedule here due to noise levels and mediocre value for the price.
Was here for an anniversary four years ago and it was better

Superb service and an outstanding meal. Salmon, lamb (oh my!)
A busy evening and they were on top of everything to ensure their customers felt special. The water man became our server— he was amazing! Funny, anticipating needs, etc.

Very nice dining room but a bit crowded and noisy. Food was good but one of our party's dishes (lamb) was a bit underdone. Not enough to return to kitchen. Our server tried very hard but was somewhat inexperienced. He forgot our appetizers and wine, but was very apologetic when we pointed it out to him. Not as good as an experience as we had hoped for our out-of-town guests, but certainly not bad. Just as a point of reference, the Istanbul Grill in Arlington is a much more comfortable dining experience. The food is every bit as good and the service is always great!

We took our brother and SIL here for their first time visiting! We love all the food, especially the olives and pita!!! And we hoped to top off our lovely anniversary evening with your delicious Turkish Flan! It's our favorite dessert in the whole of DFW! But it was terrible! There was no burnt sugar flavor that was always such a delicious contrast with the whipped cream. And it wasn't FLAN! It was not "set" at all and had to be spooned onto the plate where it spread out into a tasteless, formless custard. A very disappointing end to our anniversary dinner.
(We thought perhaps they had brought the wrong dessert and contacted the manager but she said that it was correct. Too bad they've lost a real gem from their menu)

We were greeted as we got there and weren't turned away even though traffic made us late for our reservation! The inside was warm and welcoming, our server was very knowledgeable about the menus items and help select a wine! The food was timed perfectly our server was attentive but not intrusive and Management made rounds to ensure the guests were all happy! I will definitely be visiting again!

The food was excellent, and I would highly recommend this place. There were 6 of us, and we had the hot appetizer plate, the cold app plate, salmon kabob, Mediterranean salad with gyro meat, mousaka, and one of the chicken dishes. Everyone commented on how good everything was. There was not one single negative thing to say about the meal. Five stars.

Most of our food came lukewarm and was just okay. The hanger steak entree was way over cooked and chewy. We had high expectations as it was suggested to us but it did not meet expectations.

Really a nice place to have a romantic meal. Food was great and service was great. Would recommend it to all my family and friends. Outstanding!! The only negative was the older couple behind us complaining about any and everything. If you think that it’s taking to long or that a happy baby might have a loud scream then maybe you should just leave. Instead of complaining about it. Leave then!!!!!

The food was delicious and the service was good. We had the chicken and the salmon kabobs. They were cooked perfectly and so tender. It is an energetic atmosphere so it can be a bit loud for conversation, but we enjoyed ourselves. We’ll be back!

One of our favorite places. Food was, as always, excellent. We always start with the hummus which they clearly make fresh.. Wife had Iskender and I had the Turkish meatballs. They were hot and fresh and delicious. Service is always prompt and professional. A very nice, upscale ambiance without being stuffy or pretentious. I highly recommend.

We enjoyed Sunday lunch before attending FWSO matinee at the Bass Performance Hall. First time being at the Instanbul Grill or going to a concert since January 2020–enjoyed both immensely. We had wonderful food and great service.

Very lackluster food and service. Kept waiting to taste some flavor in any of their food. Everything from appetizers to main course very bland and tasteless. Service was fine but nothing great and pretty much matched the food. Not sure why this place is somewhat busy, unless we just ordered all the wrong food.

Food was very good.
Service was excellent.
Only thing is it would be good if they identify what items were Gluten Free on the menu.
Although they are limited there are a number of GF items and they are very good.
