This was our first visit. We wanted something new for date night. We were not disappointed. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was unbelievably delicious. We definitely will return.
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.
Perfect energy and ambiance. The staff was wonderful the food was delicious.
The only request I would make is to hear Turkish music 💙
Delicious authentic food! Family owned and very attentive staff.
Very attractive restaurant with a nice ambiance. We also enjoyed the white and red Turkish Wine.
Wonderful service and good food. We will definitely be back.
Great food and service. I would recommend them to anyone. Took friends 80+ years old who had never eaten Turkish food, they loved it as well. We have been to Turkey and know the difference.
Great experience , very accommodating
This is a very active energized dining environment. Service was excellent. Very attentive and responsive. Food is very good. Unfortunately, they were out of the lamb chops, but the other dishes were generous portions and very good.
Everything was perfect from the time we arrived. Nice restaurant with quick service and delicious food. Definitely will return.
Excellent service and food quality
Wonderful dining experience! Our waiter was professional, personable and knowledgeable. His recommendations were spot on. The food was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance. I would highly recommend Istanbul Grill for your next dinner in Fort Worth.
Fabulous food in an elegant but casual atmosphere. A favorite place to dine before the theater.
Beef kabobs were delicious and very tender. Everything, including the iced tea was very good.
I will try to go every visit to FW. You should, too.
Family in town. We had a great time.
This is a great place to eat. The food was great and very tasty. The place was packed and there were several groups of 6+ people and a lot of kids, so the noise level was a bit high. Due to the pandemic they were understaffed, but the servers and owner worked very hard to keep everyone happy and to serve the food timely. If you're in doubt about this restaurant, please give it a try. You won't be disappointed because the food tastes great.
Great place for guests to have wonderful food that is a departure from the norm.
Excellent food and a definite variety expansion. Very good. We will return
Everything was outstanding!
We will return to this restaurant. Great food, awesome service and a really good wine selection for the cuisine. The Angora Turkish white wine blend was excellent with the appetizers, vegetable moussaka and lamb dish, and was not overpriced. The atmosphere was beautiful, clean and relaxing. Highly recommend!
Great food and service.
I have always been exceptionally happy overall with Istanbul Grill. Last night our entrees were a bit “off.” The lamb tasted more like beef, the sides were cool not warm and the meat was also overdone. This is a first for us as we have always been very pleased in the past.
Awesome all the way around. Even when we broke the water glass...
Waiter was very helpful with our recommendations
Always a must stop when I’m Ft Worth
“Charlie” and staff are superb, food is outstandingl
Perfect and delicious dinner last night. Our server was Ian and he made excellent wine selections for us. I had the beef moussaka and hubby had the lamb shish. Both were fantastic. I’ve eaten here several times for lunch but this was first time for dinner. It’s going in our regular dinner rotation. Awesome value in downtown.
Great service, loved lentil soup, wine choice was great, we all enjoyed our meal. It was a bit loud but crowd tapered down at about 9 and able to enjoy conversation better.
Never disappointed. Great food and service.
Excellent food! Excellent staff.
Visited with locals/regulars. Excellent food and service: an array of delicious mezes (hummus, baba, dolmas etc.), various kebabs, gyros, and koftas (ground lamb or beef) accompanied by rice and vegetables. Extensive fairly priced wine list. Quality comparable to finer dining spots we have visited in the Mid-East and Turkey.
Restaurant was a little warm but otherwise it was a good experience
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.
