The food and service were great. Since we booked a reservation we received a New Year's gift, the ingredients to make a Turkish Hot Toddy Kit for two. Thank you.

Food was amazing! Lamb was so lean, I thought it would be tough, but it was amazingly tender and flavorful. Hachapuri, highly recommend, worth the wait! All the dips on the appetizer sampler were really good and so was their pita. Just an awesome place! Definitely going back!

I’ve been walking by this place and it is easy not to notice, but so happy we finally had a meal there. Turkish/Georgian food, which is very much Mediterranean, part middle eastern, part greek. Food and service both excellent, a wine list geared toward the region. Definitely will be back.

Lamb very tender. Octopus tender and flavorful. Shrimp prepared in a nice sauce. Overall very tasty. A wonderful dining experience. Thank-you ODA!!

Booked this restaurant for a first date, because my date asked me that she I enjoy experiencing different ethnic cuisine. Women after my owned heart, I myself have experienced many different middle eastern cuisine. From Persia, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and tonight Turkey. One Word will describe our experience (Outstanding)! The ambience is very welcoming, the food is fresh and delicious, specially to anyone who loves octopus 🐙, the service is top natch ask if you can have Alec as your waiter. A must try if ever in the area.

Side note: I booked on a Wednesday and tooled advantage of their half price bottle wine 🍷.

Drinks and food were great. We had a wonderful booth for the four of us that was perfect. Waiter was amazing, but service was a bit slow...they were super busy and understaffed (which seems to be norm of late). Regardless, we weren't in a rush and enjoyed the evening. Will be back.

Nice place near Andersonville. Smartly decorated. Waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. Food was very good. We shared a Spinach Khachapuri which was excellent. The main was the Veggie Moussaka and the Adana, both of which were excellent. Wednesday night was $20 off the wine selection. Would go again on a date or with group of friends.

Oda has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants. The quality of the food is outstanding. In particular, the red lentil soup and the khachapuri Georgian cheese bread are worth the trip, even before you think about one of the delicious entrees. It is clear that every dish is made from scratch and made to order with the very freshest of ingredients. I could not recommend Oda more highly.

Fantastic service and everything we ate was delicious. Even tried some wines from the region that were really good, especially for the cost! We had a group of 10 who went on a Saturday night for a 9:30 dinner. They got everything out quickly without rushing us given the kitchen was closing at 10 pm. Would recommend and go back!

Made a reservation for an outdoor table and was told we’d have to wait 45 minutes for a table. Inside is extremely loud, causing people to raise their voices which probably spreads Covid easier.

Good drinks, ok food but overpriced. We had the mix appetizer plate and two entrees and still left hungry. We paid 120+ tip. My entree had half or quarter baby octopus 3 slices of potatoes and tiny amount of unseasoned lettuce .. it cost $22… come on !!!

When making this reservation we were warned we could only stay at our table for two hours. It took nearly that long just to get our food! Multiple times the waiter told us it was “almost ready.” Not until more than an hour and a half after ordering did he bring us one small free appetizer. The food eventually came out 1 hour and 45 minutes after we ordered! Although the food was good, by then we were hungry and it was late. I realize mistakes happen, but I wish they had explained what the issue was (they never did), apologize (they kind of sort of did only at the end), and ideally bring us one or more free appetizers during our first hour of waiting, not after we had been there for so long already.
