A neighborhood favorite! Delicious food, friendly, attentive service, wonderful outdoor space. I always enjoy their bottomless brunch--they'll ask if you have any allergies and just start bringing out small plates along with anything you specifically request. Keep in mind the whole table has to do bottomless, not just part of your party.

Bottomless Food and Drinks is a hit! A bit unfortunate that everybody at the table has to get it, because we had a driver who didn’t want to be included— but the price was still low enough to make it well worth it. They brought a variety of small drinks and plates fairly often over the 2 hours to the point where we were very full and quite tipsy at the end

The food was alright. I got the egg Benedict with turkey bacon but I couldn’t eat it due to the poached eggs being too runny. The bacon had a weird smell that I couldn’t stomach so I didn’t even take a bite in my food. The only thing I like was the Kunafe (desert). My partner had steak and eggs and he liked it.

Perfect brunch, would 100% recommend. I have now been many times and will continue coming back. One of the few places in DC that will give you bottomless champagne, not just bottomless mimosas.

Good time, rainy but we felt safest sitting outside. The manger proactively moved our table since we were getting a bit of a drip on ours. Great service, good food

Meze's outdoor dining setup was great. It was a particularly cold, rainy night when I visited, but their heat lamps and covered roof made the evening enjoyable. Highly recommend!

The service and food here were outstanding!! Not only was the food delicious and filling but it was all for a great price! They followed social distancing protocols and we had a cute table upstairs in our own little nook! It was perfect! I can't wait to try it again!

It was really good experience. They provided adequate space between tables and offered hand sanitezer whenever you need, servers were wearing masks all the times and they cleaned every table and chairs before every seating. Service, food and ambience was outstanding. Turkish dishes were delightful, we started with some small plates such as sigara boregi and mucver and later on we ate our main courses which were shrimp sautee and iskender, the food were delicious, and if you want to eat the best desert in this world you have to try kunefe and thank me later.

An amazing place to go for bottomless brunch (and at a great price point)! They have unlimited food and drinks, so you get to try a lot of different things on the menu! Everything was delicious and the service was spectacular, will definitely go back.

We were able to sit on the sidewalk patio with heaters, tables are far enough from each other. They offered hand sanitizer. Food was delicious, our waiter was kind and informative. They have hot cocktails such as Turkish hot toddy which was my favorite. Thanks to Meze for such a good experience, definitely I will come back.

Great value for brunch! Service was a bit slow for a time limited all you eat/drink, which may be on purpose, but delicious turkey cuisine nonetheless!

Meze is always great, great service and food. Also, all servers wear a mask and gloves. They offer hand sanitizer everywhere. They have contactless menu and tables are far enough from each other. They have heaters with extended patio. P.S. You should really try their best dessert in D.C which is KUNEFE.

Sat at the street patio and enjoyed several small plates including hummus (with eggplant), shrimp, and a adana kebap ... we asked the servers for recommendations and they didn’t disappoint! The mojito menu was large and the kunefe dessert was to die for! Plan to return soon...also they told us when is rain full cover patio . When is cold they have heater . We gone return all you can eat brunch . See you soon

Meze is always great - great service, food, and an experience! They have adjusted well to post-covid dining times with hand sanitizer for all customers, spaced out tables, outdoor dining, contactless menu's, staff also wore masks and gloves. Highly recommend the dips, zucchini cakes, and lamb sis kebabs!

The only problem is that the entire menu looked amazing. The food we ordered (meatballs, lamb kebob, babaganoush) was the best we have ever had. The mojitos were superb. Price is on the higher side potentially, but a perfect first date spot.

The food is great and the servers are absolutely wonderful! They even gave us a free green tea shot at the end of our lunch. Would definitely recommend! The patio is nice (extended onto the street due to covid). Portions are small, so the tapas may add up... but it’s worth the price.
I would definitely return!
