The ambience was pleasant. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and the wines a nice complement. We will definitely be back!
Amazing experience. If you love Turkish food you’ll be addicted to Meze. If it is your first time exploring Turkish food you’ll be addicted to Meze. ;)
I went to this place a few years ago and had fond memories of it. Alas, this is no longer true.
The food was mediocre -- not particularly tasty and with the presentation lacking. This was universally true for about 5 mezzes we ordered, followed up by the 3 main dishes.
The ambience was not much better. We sat on cheap, folding seats. The lighting was dim, intending to create a romantic aura. However, it was too dark so we all had lots of trouble reading the menu with us hording nearby candles and using the lights on our smartphones. There was a large bridal party next to us, who were a bit noisy, but this was the least of the issues that night.
Amazing food. Excellent service, could have a conversation on a Tuesday night. Very hospitable. Great selection made feel like I was in Turkey again.
Absolutely unbelievable! We basically asked our waiter to bring us 6 things of their choice, and every single dish was amazing. Incredible food, incredible people, authentic and just so warm...exactly what I experienced when I visited Turkey. If I lived in DC, I would be a regular.
love this restaurant! Can't get enough kunefe. :) the happy hour specials are so so awesome! will hopefully be back soon!
Amazing Turkish food. I went with my Turkish boyfriend. I have traveled to Turkey multiple times and this is true to its name! Will definitely be returning.
Our kind and attentive waiter guided us through the All You Can Eat and Drink Sunday special and it was perfect. We sampled all of Meze's dips and cheeses, several small plates (dolma were delicious!), and then the sliders (all great!). Given the $35 price tag and the great food and service, I will definitely be back!
The food and ambiance were great, perfect for a relaxing night out. The staff were really great too.
They treat you right. Reserved for wife's birthday. They had her favorite dish on hand (calve's liver), they surprised us with a glass of bubbly and a special dessert and even played a tasteful version of "Happy Birthday" through the sound system. Good solid food, excellent friendly service, nice ambiance, and very great value.
One of the most reliable places in downtown Adams Morgan. Very nice small plates. Try the olives!
Meze is one-of-a-kind gem. Overall quality compares equally or favorably with the downtown jewel Zeytinya. Great for a late-night meze table with Turkish raki. Also great for lunch or brunch. If you like seafood, their unique levrek in grape leaves is a must.
Wonderful?? Business group of 12. Great food, service and value. Highly recommended
Excellent service and delicious meal.
Welcomed and treated like old friends. The food was sensational and the service even better. Would recommend for a great meal
Low key Birthday dinner
Excellent experience there with friends and family. Very good Mojitos for sure.
We took our 2 boys 14 and 12 and had a 7pm reservation Friday night. Everything was great. We did our honeymoon in turkey years ago and honestly I found the food here at Meze so fresh and flavorful it brought me right back to the memories. Turkish food is really family friendly in not being very spicy while attaining a deep level of flavor. The service was excellent and friendly. The prices are very reasonable as well. Great value for a fun night out in lively part of the city. Highly recommend and will definitely return.
We loved our brunch at Meze! Excellent service and great good. Would highly recommend!
My friend and I happened to walk past this place on Friday night and noticed their brunch special. The manager was so excited to explain the $32 special with us that we knew we had to try it out. And we LOVED it! The food was great and there was so much to choose from on that brunch menu! The staff did a great job of making sure we felt welcome and that our drinks never got low...and that's all we needed. Whenever we're back in the city we'll DEFINITELY come back!
The manager and other staff were fantastic. They were so welcoming, friendly, accommodating, and responsive. They made my party feel like VIPs! They take great pride in their food which proved to be well-deserved. Made with care and delicious without pretention. We'll be back to Meze many times over!
The food was wonderful. The device was pleasant. However, the restaurant has two types of offerings, “ala carte” option or “all you can eat and drink” option for $32 per person. In our party of four only two of us wanted to go for “all you can eat and drink” option. The other two wanted the “ ala carte” option. But the restaurant insisted that either all choose “all you can eat and drink” option OR all choose “ala carte” option. This was not pleasant and I don’t think I will go back there again.
Took my date here for Valentine’s Day. Wait staff presented her with a red rose, which was a nice touch. Candles and theme decor throughout. Probably not fit for foodies, but the food held up. Good experience overall.
We went here for Valentine's Day and we loved it. Our waiter, Saake (sorry if I misspelled that) was awesome! Outstanding service!! He was extremely helpful and exceptionally nice! Would highly recommend this place!
They did a nice job for Valentine's Day - special menu, special wines, candlelit atmosphere. Great service. Food was good to very good. Great value.
As soon as our party of seven walked into the establishment, we felt welcomed. The service was terrific. The mojitos were top tier and not overly expensive. Overall, Meze was a great experience and I am looking forward to going back.
Vegetarian tasting platter was particularly good. Enough food for a light meal for two.
Can’t believe it took me so many months to get to this neighborhood gem! Delicious assortment of small plates w lots of veggie choices. We were there on a quiet weekday night which we really appreciated being able to have a lovely conversation among the five of us. We’ll be back!
This restaurant was a great find. The food was so delicious. We also loved the service of the staff. Everyone was friendly, helpful and explained several of the dishes that we were not familar with.
Great food, attentive service, I’d definitely return
Great dinner. Incredible lamb kabobs. Very nice & attentive servers. Very happy to have discovered Meze!
My wife and I had dinner on Friday night with a couple of friends. Reception and service was warm and friendly. The kitchen was fast, despite the crowded dining room: our first dishes came out even before our cocktails. We ordered a variety of plates for sharing and were satisfied with them all. I'll be back the next time I'm in the area.
Very very tasty food and helpful servers. You could tell the staff was happy to be there and had genuine interest in the cuisine! the owner (I assume he was the owner) was there to welcome all guests. Pricing was fair, and we received our money’s worth (and more!) will definitely make a trip again. Fantastic food!
Great food and drink options with very friendly and helpful service! Truly enjoyed our dinner at mezze.
Very good food and attentive service. Great options for vegetarians.
Meat was a.little.dry but the flavor was amazing
Great food, great service. Great value
$33 all you can eat and drink brunch is a good deal for a DC restaurant. They’re strict about their 2 hour limit rule which begins when you sit down- not when you get your first drink/plate. Our waiter went to get a different bartender after 15 minutes of waiting as the one who was working was focused on 2 women sitting at the bar. Our waiter was attentive and the food came quickly. The manager seemed eager to get us out of the restaurant once we hit the 2 limit mark even though we were still waiting on our last few plates to come out.
Meze is always a favorite for brunch- the plate sizes are perfect for trying different foods and the Bloody Mary's are wonderful. Service is always great and the price is a good value.
We had an amazing time. Will absolutely be back. Excellent food, great waiters!
