Food is fresh, flavorful and nicely presented. Prices are reasonable and portions work for sharing. Service is attentive but not intrusive. We liven the neighborhood and always look forward to return visits.

What an amazing place! I have lived in AdMo for a couple of years and for whatever reason never popped into Meze. I went with a friend this week and I am kicking myself for not having tried it before!
It was raining and chilly out (end of October), but the restaurant had opened up the front of the restaurant so we could be "outside" but still under cover. They placed a heater near the tables and the overhead lamps had heaters, too, so we were very comfortable.
We arrived with some time still left in happy hour, which our server pointed out. We ordered HH drinks (the house red is a delicious Tempranillo) and HH food. We got dessert later on, too. All the food was delicious and I am dying to go back to try more! High marks for the "veggie delight" - I don't remember what the exact name was, and the feta dish that was in a phyllo dough. YUM.
The servers were SUPER attentive, never pushy, and so accommodating. When we left they even reminded us of our umbrellas we'd left inside the main entrance.
I am waiting for an "appropriate" amount of time to pass before trying Meze again. Definitely a neighborhood gem :)

Food was great as was the out door area we sat in. Our only issue was our server was MIA a lot of the time. Never offered us another round of drinks. But all in all I would go again. Hopefully get a different server.

Overall it was too expensive. The foods are good but it was way too pricey. The portion was also too small. At first when I looked at the menu online I thought the price was reasonable. But then when we came in the server told us that those are the small portion ones. Even the items of the entrée were a little bit small. The foods we’re special and tasty. It would be great if the prices could be a little bit lower and reasonable.

Service is excellent! Food was delicious, particularly the salads which were large and used fresh ingredients. Saturday night was crowded with couples and families, many of whom appeared to be Turkish and familiar with the cuisine.

The food at Meze was outstanding and authentically Turkish. I'm looking forward to going back again really soon as I enjoyed all the dishes that i had immensely. The service was really very good and the ambiance of the restaurant quite enjoyable. I really wish we could've eaten outside, but it was a bit warm at the time we went.

Be sure to try a mojito or two. Service was friendly and fast. It was fun to try lots of small plates. The bronzino wrapped in grape leaves was outstanding.

What a find! This Turkish restaurant features small plates with enough variety to please any palate and dietary restrictions. We feasted on fried calamari with a tangy sauce; Sigara Böregi, a warm, fried pastry filled with feta, nuts and herbs; arugula salad, definitely generous even for two (but a little stingy with the feta); and white bean stew with lamb sausage and rice, simply delicious. The chilled rice pudding indeed revived memories of my mother's dessert, although additions of nutmeg or cinnamon would have perked it up a bit. The Turkish sauvignon blanc was fresh and drinkable. Upstairs is quieter and allows for pleasant dinner conversation. The challenge: finding parking in Adams Morgan. Try Metro or taxi/uber if you want to arrive in a good mood...

This restaurant is a gem. It features small plates with enough variety to please any palate. We sat outside and enjoyed the street scene in Adams Morgan. We dined on Grape Leaves, Menti, Karisik kebab, Adana Kebab and Biftek. All the dishes were succulent and absolutely delicious. The grape leaves were the best I've had at any restaurant. The Karisik Kebab combo was excellent but you are better off ordering an entree which is what I did (Adana Kebab). The food is authentic Turkish cuisine. We were in Istanbul in December 2018 and the Adana Kebab tasted just like the Adana Kebab I had at the Cevalia Mall in Instanbul. Outstanding meal and excellent service. We would definitely return again. If you want authentic Turkish cuisine, Meze is the place.

I've been to many, many brunch places and I have to say - this place takes the cake! Meze provided wonderful food and service, and I can't think of one thing that went wrong over the 2 hour period we spent dining here.

Meze is a Turkish restaurant and serves an amazing brunch with everything you could possibly want on the menu (Turkish treats as well as Omelets, etc). We chose the prix fix menu for $35. Basically, this allows you to order anything off the brunch menu (which is huge) and as much as you want. It also includes bottomless champagne, house liquor, Bloody Marys, and Mimosas! All for $35 bucks! We started off with small plates (cheese, olives, hummus, salads, etc) and moved onto the bigger brunch items (French Toast, Eggs Benedict, etc). We never felt rushed and left happy and full of good food!

The service was excellent and very friendly, and the outdoor patio was a fun place to sit and people-watch on a Sunday morning/afternoon. Definitely try this place! You will not be disappointed!
