We had a wonderful time since we were meeting with friends we haven't seen for a long time.

The food was delicious and healthy, service was stellar and the ambience lovely (we were outside).

I recommend it for any celebration or to enjoy a nice time!

Love how dependable this spot is. Great place to get a bunch of meze (small plates) and share with table.
Vegans and vegetarians will have plenty of options- the salmon and meat looked really good too.
Tried the “atom” spread/dip and loved it. Don’t miss the sigara boregi.
Nice additional outdoor seating with overhead fans!
Mojitos with fresh berries are also a win.

Not the best dining experience! They did not have many options available: no kebab iskander, no Turkish coffee, etc. Not too impressed, won’t go again !

Food was great! I loved everything I had. The $35 brunch is such a great deal. Service was slow but I bet that's from returning to full capacity since COVID restrictions have relaxed - so, understandable. Our waiter was wonderful though - just stretched thin so we didn't get as many chances to refill our drinks or order food. I would definitely return again and recommend to others!

Suggestion to the restaurant - Maybe to ease the transition to full service, the waiters can leave the water and mimosa carafe on the table? It was so hot and the water glasses are small so our poor waiter had to refill our waters so often!

Meze is always a winner! I have been numerous times. The brunch is one of the best bottomless brunches in DC as far as quality and value along with service. I dined yesterday with a group of 7, and the service was very efficient. I love the watermelon mojito, the veggie delight, and the chicken meatballs, along with the super awesome bread. I will be back many times in the future I am sure. My only complaint is that happy hour was majorly downsized, but that's happened many places in the pandemic. Hopefully things get back to normal eventually.

Food was delicious but waited 20 min between dishes, also ordered food that just never came after 45 min of ordering and checking with two people. Saw the server maybe 4 times and 20% was already included which was poor for us but lucky for her. Used to be a loyal customer and was showing. Friend for the first time, talked so highly of it to only be disappointed and of course it was her food that never came. Drinks also took forever even though it was. Mimosa that they have in pitchers everywhere. But avoid them, too sweet and as if made in morning then left out.

A friend and I visited this restaurant for Sunday brunch, which features bottomless booze and endless food for $35, which is an incredible value. We sat outside with plenty of shade and good people watching and had a terrific waiter. I will certainly return to this restaurant.

We ate outside for a Mother's Day brunch. The food and the service was excellent! Since we are literally 'on the street' the noise was a bit loud, but it included live music from across the street which was very nice. We will definitely be going there again!

The food was not good; the service was slow; the ambiance is like a dive bar. Obviously you can't beat the price, which I would say is the only upside. We won't be returning.

I tried the fried calamari and definitely I will have it there again. The Sis Kebab was just fantastic. Above all they have the best kunefe I ever tried. Most places have their dessert very sweet but this place has the right balance. That made their bakhlava mouthwatering.Overall loved the everything about this place.

everything about our visit to Meze exceeded expectations, the outdoor patio seating was a great way to take in the buzz of AdMo while keeping physical distance, we enjoyed the cocktails and delicious Turkish fare (highly recommend the Hummus, Manti, and İskender kebap), and to top it all off our servers were stellar, very kind and hospitable.

My mom was in town and loves Mediterranean food, but doesn’t eat huge portions. Meze was the perfect place to take her! We sat at a cozy outdoor table and ordered many small plates to share. It was all delicious, and perfect portions. Our server was attentive, and respectful of the food allergies in our party. A lovely neighborhood spot!

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
