                                  We went to Meze for a Birthday Bottomless Brunch and had an amazing time! Our server was the absolute best and ensured our time was one we’ll remember! They had a diverse menu to satisfy our whole group but I would tell vegans to check for dairy restrictions. Overall, I’d go back any day!

                                  We love this place! My salmon kabob last night was perfectly cooked. We also appreciate their extensive vegetarian selections. And the wait staff are first class, very accommodating! Excellent mojitos (or in my case, virgin mojitos) too!

                                  Great food, great drinks. If your plan is to have some food before going to do other stuff, it's a great place to get a sample platter and a couple of drinks. The portions are adequate size to fill you up without feeling uncomfortably full. Everything we tried was delicious.

                                  I was at Mezè for just a snack. I had some spicy pepper dip and some Belgian beer. As usual, I had a fine time with the ever-friendly Hasan and Can. What a great place. If you ever find yourself out front on the sidewalk wondering, “Should I eat here?” the answer is “Yes!”

                                  The iftar dinner was very well-priced and one of the best meals I've had. The shis kebab and the baklava were exceptional. The pide was baked just right.

                                  It was fun to dine by the open windows at Mezè, one of us facing out to the lively street and the other with a view of the impressive full bar and intimate interior. Mezè is perfect for taking in the lovely 18th Street atmosphere. We enjoyed our standby muhamarrah with spicy sauce on the side, plus the outstanding sample cheese plate. All served with a flourish by Hasan, Can, and team.

                                  I love this place, the food never misses, mojitos are amazing and it’s one of the few restaurants in DC I always go back to

                                  Meze is absolutely my favorite restaurant in DC! Every time I’m there the food is incredible, the drinks are delicious and the service is top notch. I try something new from the menu each time and consistently everything is mind blowingly delicious. The restaurant staff is all so friendly and kind- it truly has a familial feel. I always leave so happy and eager to return. A must try spot!

                                  We enjoyed a beautiful spring evening on the patio at Meze. It’s the perfect neighborhood spot for fine Turkish food, generous service, and people-watching in vibrant Adams Morgan. Outfitting and summer decoration of the street-side dining pavilion is complete, making for a comfortable and airy oasis on 18th Street. The options for a vegetarian like me are plentiful, and my favorites are the mucver and quinoa kofte. You can’t go wrong!

                                  I celebrated my 25th birthday here with nine of my friends, and we got a table in the back that was perfect for a small party! I’m so glad we picked Meze because the drinks were great and the food was fresh and tasty! The service was so nice and wished me a happy birthday multiple times throughout the night. The ambiance is cozy and warm. We always had water, which is always a good thing! I couldn’t recommend it enough, especially for a larger group! The staff at Meze are on it!

                                  I made a reservation for a small group for a friend's birthday so we could do the unlimited brunch, and the experience could not have been better! The food was great, especially considering it was all-you-can-eat. Most impressive was the service. Our server (I so wish I caught his name) was absolutely amazing. He gave great recommendations based on our tastes and dietary preferences and was super attentive and friendly. To the server who lives in Arlington and worked Saturday, April 9, you really made our day! Thank you so much!

                                  The food was amazing. The bottomless brunch, the drinks are controlled by the manager so you're having to wait for them to say it's ok to get a refill on your drinks. Overall my party was being told numerous time that we only had 2 hours. This was to the point where we had to tell the waiter we understood.

                                  Our food took an hour+ to make. There were multiple tables around us that came after and was still fed before we were. They were out of roasted potatoes and instead of asking what we wanted just substituted with fries. Had to ask for updates on our food as opposed to being updated on an order that was clearly taking too long.

                                  Meze was fully authentic. One finds the middle eastern dishes Americans have come to expect but there are those additional unexpected and unknown Turkish-specific ones even for an experienced travel to their country. Try the Turkish wines. They are distinctive and elegant.

                                  We have eaten here many times, both as a couple and as part of a large group. Every time, the food has been outstanding, and the servers go above and beyond. I cannot praise enough!

                                  Another wonderful time at my favorite neighborhood restaurant. Mezè rocks! Muhammara and the Brussels sprouts are so great. Service as usual is delightful. Thanks Hasan and Çan!

                                  On Spring Break and trying to introduce our nephew to different foods. Delicious starters with three dips including hummus, babaganus, and a chicken/walnut one along with fresh bread for dipping, and a calamari appetizer all wonderful. My chicken kebab was wonderful and nephew happy with his grilled chicken entree, husband with his beef. Had to try the kenefe (small one split three ways was plenty).. a hit with shredded wheat, cheese and soaked in lemon syrup. The mojitos was also one of the beat I have had. Nice seating outside and wonderful service made for an exceptional evening

                                  We thoroughly enjoyed the family style meal which gave us a chance to taste a lot of delicious dishes. They also accommodated those of us that don't eat beef with a tasty alternative.
