Lezzet was wonderful! The food was excellent; the babaganoush, Halloumi cheese, and white bean salad were amazing although the zucchini cakes were a little dense.

The service was outstanding! The server was polite friendly and knowledgeable, easily able and proactively recommended dishes and a bottle of wine that we loved. I mentioned it was someone's birthday in the reservation, and they thoughtfully made the night very special for us. We will definitely be back!

Excellent service. And the food was praised by all in our group of 6. Ambiance lacks a bit. TVs on the wall detract from the overall experience. But will return.

I was looking for somewhere to have a brunch for 10 family members before a afternoon wedding. I am from out of town, so went to Open Table to look. I found Lezzet, and they were perfect! From the call I made to ask about indoor or outdoor dining possibilities (they have both), to the call I received the morning of the brunch to ask my preference for dining, and to let me know they had a separate room for us, to the food!! The menu is amazing - I wished I lived in Virginia and could try everything on it! But the service really stands out. It was perfect. Attentive, timely, friendly, but let us visit and eat and catch up with family. The service was a 10! And the food was a 10! Try them, I wish I could again!

We first ordered from Lezzet via GrubHub, and it was so good, we had to go to the restaurant in person. Obviously, it's even more delicious when it's brought to your table piping hot (or nicely chilled). It's so hard to find a really good baba ghanoush, but Lezzet's is to die for. I could make a meal out just the baba ghanoush alone.

This is the first place I've found locally that also serves Turkish coffee, so I'm that much more thrilled about finding Lezzet. If you are looking for delicious, authentic Turkish food, go to Lezzet!

The positive reviews inspired me to pick this restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday…and we were not disappointed! Service was excellent and the staff informative since this was our first visit. The shared appetizer platter was delightful but as a light eater…half of it could have been
my entire dinner! The shrimp tava had a great lemony flavor and my husband’s manti was delicious! A nice bottle of Turkish red wine and a sweet ending with rice pudding and baklava made it a perfect Monday night celebration in the suburbs! While the restaurant is lovely, the quality of food far exceeds its location and could easily compete with more expensive “trendy” spots!

We always enjoy the fresh salads and Mediterranean food at Lezzet. It is just delicious, and we have enjoyed eating outdoors during the still summery weather. We enjoy not being rushed and enjoying each course at leisure.

I enjoy Lezzet more each time I eat here. The outdoor tables are a quiet retreat and I’m in the process of working through their delicious meals, exploring the many treats Lezzet offers.

M guest enjoyed his Greek Salad full of fresh Mediterranean vegetables and I had the Köfte with Bulgar Pilaf - it was amazing.

I look forward to my next visit!

OMG! The best grilled lamb chops ever in my life and I don’t expect to get better. Get the mix grill platter. Everything moist, flavorful and has that taste of fire cooked love. They have ample outdoor seating and parking. Huge food options for vegetarians too!
They also serve the Turkish dessert Kuhnefe (spelling?) that is hard to find at other restaurants. Try this restaurant. You won’t regret and will keep coming back. (We drive an hour to eat here bec it’s worth it)

“Lezzet” means “taste” and our experience was wonderful. This appears to be a family-owned restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was prepared accurately and quickly. We enjoyed it and will come back again for their flatbreads, their baba ganoush, hummus, and yogurt dishes!

The daily made red lentil soup: you can taste the freshness and care. Great seasoning and lightness.
The baklava: I literally had tears and was in shock how out of the world this tasted. Usually I don’t like baklava but the chef insisted on a complimentary one since it’s our first visit and boy was I blown away. It was crispy, light, perfect sweetness. It has made it to my “best evers” list which means I don’t intend to find better elsewhere….I’m marrying this one.
We also had their mousukkka eggplant entre and the beyti yogurt. Great texture and you’ll leave there with a full satisfied smile on your face.

Most authentic Turkish food I have had outside of Turkey. This is a family owned and run place. Very nice environment and pleasant open view with seating inside and out. The food itself was great tasting and incredibly fresh.

Quiet Turkish restaurant with a great menu very reasonably priced. Service was excellent, fast and professional. We shared a meze -the “cigars” were delicious as was the Baba ganoush, hummus and dolmas. Kofte and falafel wraps were perfect and for dessert, the pistachio cake was super yummy! We’ll be back.

This was my first time. The wait staff was warm and solicitous and really couldn’t do enough for us. The baba ganouj was delicious with the homemade bread. Next, being vegetarian, I had the falafel salad. A Turkish wine was delish as well. All in all a beautiful evening.
