    Turquoise was beautiful and delicious. We ordered the whipped feta and saganaki for the table to share, and each of us ordered a different kabab (chicken, lamb, and beef). Each bite was so flavorful. The Turquoise martini not only tasted splendid, the rose water and aromatics made me feel like I was in a cafe in the region. Definitely going back.

    What a lovely Christmas dinner. Last time I was at Turquoise they were short staffed and the service was slow but last night it was impeccable so I’m glad we came back. Everything we had was delicious and they make a great martini.

    Everything was both delicious and nicely presented. The cold Meze platter is a good choice to sample a variety of appetizers. The Sultan's Delight is aptly named. My husband got the lamb kabobs and our table mates shared a Turquoise salad and mushroom risotto. Everyone agreed the food and service was spot on. We'll be back!

    We had a reservation at 7:15 and wasn’t seated until 8pm. One of the salads was salty and had to be sent back. This is the second time we’ve tried it and both times had to wait well past our reservation time. Food was ok, service was slow.

    What a joy to go back to Turquoise for the first time since pre-pandemic and to learn that they have a huge new room that almost triples seating, and had a terrific pianist and bass player playing live. Food is as good as ever, in fact better and more options than before. And they have not sacrificed service - everybody pitches in and service is prompt and efficient, despite a full house. That they survived opening a huge new room just before the disastrous pandemic and not only survived but are now thriving is a great sign. Still providing their delicious and secretive dip appetizer with their home baked bread to all tables. Highly recommended.

    There were seven of us who met for a birthday of a friend. Three of the people who attended were from Anchorage Alaska. Our server was wonderful. Actually, the entire staff was wonderful. The food was really, really good. We ordered a variety of different dishes and we all liked them. The Turkish cocktails were really fun and completely unique. We enjoyed them tremendously. Can’t wait to go back!

    Always a favorite spot for lunch with friends. Pleasant space and staff with good food. I will always miss their seared tuna salad. I had the mussels appetizer as my main course for the first time- LOADS of mussels (although about 6 of them had not opened so I couldn't eat them). I wished they had been served with bread so I could have soaked up more of the yummy broth. Fortunately, there was some of the complimentary pre-meal yummy bread left. My friends enjoyed the grilled calamari and Turquoise salads as well.

    The service is exceptional! Only reason I didn’t give a perfect 5 stars is because the beef was cooked well rather than medium as requested. Everything else was perfect!!

    One of my favorite restaurants and frankly the best food on Roscoe. Love all the appetizers (hummus is sooo good) and the bread is amazing. My favorite entree is the Risotto Presidente. It never disappoints. Also had a great bottle of wine and sat outside for one of the last night evenings of the season.

    The food is super tasty! We started with the harissa which is good but very singularly flavored. The serving is large so we each took some home with us. The first serving of bread we were given was a bit overdone, but the second was perfect for dipping. The carrot/yogurt spread that they give everyone to start is amazing! The flavor has depth (tangy and spicy) and the textures are wonderful. The main courses are very large and share-worthy. The braised lamb served on the bed of warm eggplant puree (similar to Babaganoush) was delicious but double the size that I could eat. The decor is fine, nothing to write home about. But the food is worth the visit, and frankly, isn't that the point?
