All i gotta say is P h e n o m e n a l. Will be back.
I want the hummus to be served as my last meal. What a spectacular start with the velvety smooth delight. The warm pita dredged into this silky dream drizzled with olive oil is Mediterranean at its finest. The zucchini cakes were incredibly flavorful but needs a little bit more of the the yogurt sauce on the side. The salmon salad had alot of fish and was very filling. I passed on dessert this time but I look forward to returning to Istanbul Grill many times.
We started with the Dolmas; excellent-4 to an order so perfect for us. We all had different entrees ranging from beef kabobs, to gryros. Everything was fresh and delicious. We could have used a few more veggies as my last visit had more. They are delicious.
Excellent food and outstanding service in a casually elegant atmosphere provide for a delightful evening in downtown Fort Worth.
Beautiful setting. Outstanding service and delicious food. I would come back in a heartbeat.
Third time to dine. Waited 15 minutes before the wait staff acknowledged we were there…. Food was good, but waiter did not ensure a couple of the entrees were split as requested. Asked for a decaf coffee with dessert and they were out. Website says valet parking was available, but it has been discontinued… Had to park down the street for $25!. I know it is hard to find wait staff, but this was one of the poorest experiences we have had in years.
Great food, good wine selections, nice evening.
Enjoyed it a lot. Best part is the quality of the food. Very tasty with great flavor combinations. Hummus was one of the best I tasted.
Delicious, attentive service, reasonable prices, would go again.
We have been many times and the food & service are consistently outstanding.
As always, we had enjoyable experience at Istanbul Grill. Excellent food, flowless friendly service, lovely ambience. The perfect place to come with friends and enjoy elegant dining and conversation.
The server was excellent, the food was very tasty, and dinner was very reasonable in terms of price. I'll return....
Always a desired stop for us
Always great experience.
We had a wonderful time catching up with old friends. Service was great and the food was excellent as usual.
Traveled from Oklahoma City on the train to celebrate our anniversary! The food was awesome and the service was excellent!!
Good, authentic food, quiet ambience, convenient downtown location near Sundance Square. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need and make the experience personal with recommendations and wine tastes.
The venue was well staff the amount of
Patrons in dining on a Tuesday. The host either did not speak English or was poor at her job. I asked for a glass of pinot Grigio one thought I ask for the hope diamond. She behaved as if she was to good to help out the server. I ask for the Lamb Chops and they did not have what was on the menu. BEWARE ordering is Comparable to playing the slot machines on a cruise ship during a pandemic.
The food is really EXCELLENT! This is one of my favorite places to eat in Fort Worth. The staff is great and the music and noise level are such that diners could actually have a conversation! IMO -- best falafel in the USA.
Best Mediterranean food I’ve had in DFW!! Absolutely fantastic. Ready to go back tomorrow for another dish, great place, excellent value.
Food was excellent! Service was a little slow, but the restaurant was packed so no big deal. We enjoyed our evening and will recommend this place!
Great food and service.
Charli, our waiter was excellent and recommended SPICY EZME with our BABAGANOUSH as a starter, he was right, it was excellent.
Our main of braised lamb shank was fall of the bone tender. Also , HUNKAR BEGENDI. a 1600 Ottoman Empire lamb in tomato sauce was super tender and amazing. We will be back.
I wanted to take my son, a student in Fort Worth, to a place that he hadn't yet eaten. I saw Istanbul while walking and exploring downtown. Istanbul has excellent food and very, but not too, attentive service. They were happy for our business. The lamb and the salmon were excellent and cooked exactly to order; presentation stood out as a special plus. Istanbul has a clean, open, and spare ambiance that is modern, comfortable and welcoming. I recommend Istanbul and hope to get back to it.
We had dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. The food was delicious and service excellent. Definitely a repeat restaurant!
The food and service was wonderful. They had several vegetarian options which tasted amazing! The only issue we had would be the temperature. It was very warm inside.
It was very delicious and a lot of great food. Will definitely be coming back with friends and family!
Friendly service, great food
Fell in love with this place a couple of years ago and it is the first place we head to when in Fort Worth. The ownership and staff are extremely welcoming and grateful to have you there.
I'm a west Texas guy... I have to say, the food is absolutely delicious and there is something there for anyone's taste.
You might be tempted to have any of their great appetizers, salads or entrees, but you have to save room for one of there Kunefes. Enough to share, you keep wondering just how they get something to taste as great as this does. It really is mesmerizing. And their Turkish coffee is a great way to finish a wonderful evening. It really is a great place to spend an evening catching up with your mate from a busy week.
The staff was incredible and took the time to really take care of us. Truly welcoming place. The food was excellent. Rakia for aperitif and some Turkish tea after really set things up for success.
My husband has never had real Mediterranean food, and I’ve been to Istanbul and Ankara so we should have been hard to please. But the food was great, from the pita to the shepherds salad. The kebabs were generous and plated elegantly. We were out on a date without the kids, but there were double dates families and business groups all throughout. The decor was classy and the service was great, easily customizing things for me. Definitely a keeper.
I ordered a lamb kabob. They brought beef and I guess they thought I wouldn’t notice. It was so tough that I couldn’t chew it and gave up.
Fabulous service and deliciously prepared Mediterranean dishes.
Explore the entire menu. Nothing they serve can be missed.
Wonderful experience! Everything was incredible! I will definitely be back!
Food was excellent!
Food was cold for the second visit in a row. Mixed drinks were sugary and the service was sub-par. We won’t be returning
Very good dinner. Had the shepherd salad with grilled salmon, hummus with pita, carrots, and cucumber. Two glasses of wine. The bill was quite affordable, dinner was delicious, we arrived at 6 PM and were done by 7:15, walked to the venue for a jazz concert and had a few drinks there before the show started. This is a nice restaurant in downtown Fort Worth, I highly recommend.
Amazing food, as always.
The food was very good. Very different. Not too spicy, very flavorful. Seemed a little too crowded, but we’re just getting used to going out again.
Delicious food, friendly service, we had wonderful time.
