    We had gathered in a large group to celebrate my husband’s birthday. So we had high expectations for the meal, but our dinner experience was lacking. The portions, of both the appetizers (pita with lots of sauces in tiny amounts that you really cannot share them) and dinner were really small. We got half of the appetizers first and it took us nearly half an hour to get the second portion of our appetizers. My main course was the fish but it was a small portion definitely not the standard single portion which is 6-8oz. More like 3oz…half that portion (or less for some of us). For $54 you expect to get a fully satisfying entree!! The dessert was the only exception and it was a decent portion and quite delicious. We paid nearly $600 for a party of eight people. And when I got home I needed to eat a snack!! Looks like they want to keep their prices high and portions small. But I’m sorry to say it did not make for a satisfying meal.

    This is our first time in Taksim and I have to admit they are better than we thought! Their sampler dips are to die for! The entire staff is very friendly, we felt at home with their attitude. We also got crunchy king size shrimps and kebab as an appetizer. The story behind lamb shank was very interesting and we loved the combined taste. We will be back soon.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire San Francisco! Turkish dumplings are gluten free and very tasty. Turbot was a different experience, they made something from mushrooms that look like the original skin of the fish. Their food and staff never disappoints, can’t wait to be back!

    Excellent neighborhood gem with upscale food and service but at reasonable prices. I have a nut allergy and substitutions were recommended when needed. All three of us left thinking “now that was a great meal” and we loved the space.

    The menu is limited. Starters and main courses were OK, the Turkish donut dessert was spectacular. The service was attentive but difficult to hear. The restaurant itself was very cold.

    We have been three times now — every time the food has been phenomenal (creative, balanced, artfully presented), the service has always been top notch (knowledgeable and so incredibly welcoming and attentive), and the space is a nice mix of cozy and industrial chic with a beautiful open view of the exciting kitchen. Such a gem, we love it here and will be back soon!!

    Taksim offers delicious upscale Turkish / Mediterranean food in an pleasanr setting . We came for the second time last night and tried some differnt dishes . Everything was delicious - homemade pita and dips , stuffed peppers , tasty chicken and fish paired with Turkish wines . The sommelier has chosen an eclectic Mediterranean based wine list with some unusual offerings . We highly recommend Taksim and will be back .

    Perfect for those who want to taste different and new tastes. It has a historical and gothic atmosphere. The dishes are carefully prepared, the plate layouts and flavor harmonies are great. The service is very good and their attention is excellent. The bar is excellent with new ingredients and nice cocktails and presentation as well as a different wine menu. A different world for those looking for a new adventure.

    What better than Turkish turkey on Thanksgiving? Probably the best smoked turkey to ever cross my lips. The 4-course prix fixe menu was simply amazing. The pumpkin soup was totally divine and the fattoush salad was delightful and light. The second course consisted of a butter poached King Shrimp wrapped in kadaif - exquisite. The other choice of the eggplant stuffed peppers with manchengo was delicious. For dessert, the apple tart was the perfect complement. Thinly-sliced green apples baked in puff pastry and topped with vanilla ice cream is my idea of "apple pie" - I could have eaten three more! This was our second visit to Taksim. This is one of San Francisco's newest and best Turkish restaurant to hit the dining scene, IMHO. For a fresh, inventive, modern approach to Mediterranean dining. this is a MUST try!

    Hidden gem. All staff members were welcoming and knowledgeable. We enjoyed hearing the details of each Mediterranean dish as it was served. Craft cocktails were delicious too. How Do I Go to Taksim? is was a fun spiced drink. I placed a call before our dinner and appreciated that I was able to discuss dining details before our party of 7 arrived for a Tuesday reservation.

    Such imaginative dishes, beautifully prepared! I love the space as well. The menu leans towards seafood (the turbot and branding were both amazing), which is impeccably fresh and prepared with great care and creativity. The Turkish donuts are an unusual and delightful way to end the meal. The wine list is well-curated and features bottles from all over the world. Service is attentive and friendly. Superb!
