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.
First time there, Great service, great food!
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.
We loved the Turkish Flan. The staff was attentive. Another wonderful evening out. We're looking forward to returning.
Food was amazing...first time there and this place is definitely in the rotation. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Check them out...
Great food , great service and a wonderful environment!
Great food! Waitress very accommodating and helpful with menu selections.
Great food, friendly and inviting service.
Great food, great service, friendly people, good humus
Nice place with good food. Would give it another try once things go back to normal (Post Covid 19). I’m sure it will be more lively.
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.
Wonderful place for a romantic dinner. Meal was delicious and portioned just right. Will go again soon!
Just wonderful from the food to the service...overall great spot!
Food was excellent and very flavorful! The cold appetizer plate was delicious And the beef kabobs cooked to perfection.
The wait staff were very attentive and kind. We loved the cozy atmosphere.
Will be back!
This place was terrific! We shared a cold app platter and an order of falafel to start. All of it was delicious. The mains were also superb; I had the Adana kebab, which was seasoned and grilled nicely. Our waiter, even though handling more tables than seemed normal due to COVID, was super efficient and friendly. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the cuisine and service.
Wonderful food and service. Was treated to a free dessert for our anniversary.
I have been there with my husband for dinners and friends for lunch. I like it very much the food, the service, the environment.
Wonderful! The hummus / baba ganoush starter was tasty with perfectly chilled and fresh carrots & cucumbers. I could really appreciate the roasting flavors of the baba ganoush. The hünkar beğendi was amazing - simply rich and flavorful! Great experience.
Great food! Great service! Great ambiance! Highly recommended!
It was our first time at Istanbul and we were excited to try a new place. Seating was spread out nicely and staff had masks on. The wine choices were varied and my guy tried a Turkish beer, Ezme that he enjoyed. Our server was great with recommendations and pointed us to some great options. The babaganoush was something I was looking forward to and while it was good, there seemed to be a hint of sweetness that I had not experienced before. I look forward to going back.
One more thing: I was disappointed that there was not honey available for my tea, when most of the desserts have honey as an essential ingredient.
Fantastic food selection and service. I will be back.
Such kind service and amazing food! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed eating here our first time :)
Our experience was perfect.
We will make Istanbul a regular dinning experience.
Thank you so much!
Great food and service. this has quickly has become a favorite place.
Love this place. Noticed prices were a little higher than last time I was there (May 2020), but understandable with COVID and not able to serve at full capacity. The food is consistently excellent and the service is always friendly.
If you're trying to find a date night location during COVID, look no further. Istanbul Grill had a great set up for social distancing, great food, and great ambiance.
Great food. Great service. Love the lamb.
I am a vegetarian and my fiance is a vegan, I chose this place to eat because of its broad variety. I was very happy for the service and customer care. My waitress was very fabulous. I would definitely go back and dine here as long am in the Fort Worth.
First off: great food. You can’t order a bad meal here. This would be a higher review but for the unique circumstances brought on by the outbreak. Service was a bit slow, but not bad. Wait staff was careful in everything they did and we were well attended too.
Amazing food and great service!
Pleasant ambiance, great flavors (don’t miss the Ezme!) , generous portions. Service was attentive but not rushed. Good value in downtown location.
Great food and service as usual. This is probably our favorite restaurant.
Amazing! The food is spectacular and plan to return in 2 days! Yes, it’s that good
Service and Food was fabulous
The hospitality was excellent. Food was delicious. Very charming and memorable place. Alexis was an outstanding server. Loved the wine. Some of the best Falafel, Turkish Coffee, and Baklava ever had.
From start to finish, it was perfect! The ambience, the service, the food.... oh, the food!!!! I love this place and will go back often!
The lamb chops were excellent
Good experience even with the virus
Legit, fresh, delish! Can't go wrong here if you're needing to get your Mediterranean fix!
