Thyme & Pepper Marinated Lamb Chops Served with Sautéed Baby Vegetables& Smoked Eggplant Puree
Finely Layered Pastry Filled with Nuts & Steeped in Syrup
We ordered off the trip to turkey menu, which was a great deal. We were able to try so many things off the menu, and our server was helpful with recommendations for the food and wine pairings. I wish the outdoor seating was a little more robust, but the indoor decor and ambience is on point.
Food was fantastic. Authentic! So good! Eggplant and beet mezze were phenomenal.
Food was okay. Lamb chops and the dips were really good. However Tavuk Sis was not, it was little too dry. We also felt rushed during our visit.
Food a lil dry
Great restaurant for a fine dining experience! Amazing Turkish food!
Great meal, service and atmosphere!! Will definitely be back!
We went to the restaurant on Valentines day. The food was alright.The food is from the South and southeast of Turkey. .Adana was the best among the kebaps and köfte and chicken shish was bad . Their Turkish wine selection is ok.I hope they brong more selections. The ambience was really good and a waitress kept putting rose pedals on our table.
I had a great experience. Service was fast, food was great, ambience was good!
Food was good and servers were so great and friendly. Awesome Turkish food.
Food was delicious, service was great, I will definitely be returning!!
This is the best Turkish food we've had in Washington, where we have three good upscale Turkish options in Dupont Circle alone (Gypsy Kitchen, Ankara and Agora). I've never thought of Turkish cuisine as sophisticated but rather healthy, basic and tasty. My bad. Here even the pita bread has an amazing and subtle combination of spices and oils to make it the best I've ever tasted. Same for the chicken kebab - the most moist I've ever had and the best seasonings. A lot of the mezze I have not seen anywhere else. This is a fine dining atmosphere. When you are ready to splurge go here.
Very spaced out for covid reduced capacity indoor dining
Food was good and good portion size for entrees
I can’t say enough about this place. It was awesome and the food/service was very eclectic!
all food dishes and service very good. will definitely go back and plan to recommend to others.
The experience is recommended.
Best Turkish food ever
Service was above and beyond. The waiter was incredibly friendly and made for a special birthday dinner!
I would recommend Ottoman Taverna to anyone who would like to enjoy authentic delicious Turkish food and great ambience and service.. Always a great dining experience.
My favorite restaurant in DC
Service was awkward & off putting
Excellent service and food
One of my favorite brunch spots in DC. Service is great, food is awesome, and all at a great price.
One of the most outstanding meals I’ve ever eaten in dc.
The outdoor dining set up is properly spaced and heated! The service was excellent as always.
It was great! I attended for the brunch with my roommates and every dish was amazing and the mimosas kept coming. The servers were very attentive and nice!
Excellent food as always!
Delicious, with marvelous service and lovely ambience!
Excellent staff and excellent food!
The food was not so great, we had better expectations since the restaurant received Michelin 2020. We had ordered chicken dishes but for sure they had Lamb or some other meat in it which did not taste good at all. The prices for the restaurant are high compared to the quality of the food.
I haven't been satisfied with a service from long time but from the beginning this people put a big smile on me. Great food, great place, great people
The restaurant and service are lovely. I think they could be more creative with their brunch choices. I was expecting more of the Turkish style breakfast versus one that resembles too much of a brunch I can get in other places. I’m assuming it’s much better for lunch and dinner.
Great food, excellent service
What a wonderful experience! Service, food, ambiance...everything was so great for our brunch. Will definitely be back !
Fantastic experience and food! One of the best brunch places in D.C!
Celebrated a friend's birthday and our 3rd anniversary at Ottoman Taverna. The food was amazing as always!!! And the serving staff is so friendly. Can't wait to be back.
Good food overall will be back
Great experience and food
My daughter goes to school in the DC area. On a recent visit we dined at Ottoman Taverna. This was our first time dining there and will be sure to visit again when we are in the area. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were excellent.
This place was awesome! Service was great as soon as we sat down and was great the whole time we were there
This restaurant is always so delicious and makes you feel like you’re in a place far away from DC. An amazing feast! Always look forward to coming back
