    Our food was beyond our expectations! The bread was high quality and served with a delicious complimentary carrot spread. We ordered a flatbread type dish to share. It was light and flaky, and stuffed with your choice of ingredients. I ordered lamb chops which were cooked to perfection. My husband had a mixed grill shish kabob which was tasty but slightly overcooked. We followed our meal with baklava. Yum! We will definitely go back! Oh, and reasonably priced.

    Casual lunch with friends and family on Labor Day.. chose this place as it was recommended on Open Table.. didn’t go wrong. Food was fantastic, service was great and parking was easy (free street parking). Falafel and zucchini fitters were authentic and fresh. The vegetarian dishes (Priest fainted! Is the name of the dish two of us ordered) and the Turkish delight were packed with flavors. Our guests ordered lemon chicken, branzino and Turkish pizza and they loved it. Overall a great experience and I would visit again!

    I have to start eating clean recipes now and this restaurant was a perfect place to do that! I ordered the lemon chicken and it was sooo yummy and tasty which is exactly what I was looking for more veggies and protein than carbs. My mother who I dine with she ordered the beef kabobs and it was also very delicious. Customer service was super nice and welcoming. Definitely coming back here.

    The food was good! However the calamari was more rubbery than I prefer and the onion soup was ok. The salads were flavorful, the homemade bread delicious and lamb kabobs were yummy! Our vegetarian dishes were very very flavorful. Piano player outside made our evening nice and relaxing. Recommend…. To go!

    This is always a great dining experience. Unique cocktails and good wine list start out the experience. We chose the sampler appetizer which is a lot of food for four to share (and homemade bread), with many delicious foods to try. The risotto main was wonderful, as well as the manti (a type of dumpling). We finished with the amazing Turkish custard for dessert. There was live music, an understated but enjoyable jazz trio and we sat outside in the atmospheric patio on a surprisingly quiet street (for Chicago). We will definitely return again and again to this hidden gem.

    TurquoiseResponded on July 20, 2023

    Hi Don, Thank you for your wonderful review! We're glad you saved some room for dessert and that our Turkish custard amazed your taste buds. It's fantastic to hear that the live music added to your experience. Our jazz trio aims to provide a soothing and enjoyable atmosphere for our patrons. Your words of praise and appreciation truly mean the world to us. Thank you for being part of our journey!

    One of our favorite restaurants in Chicago. Offers indoor and outdoor eating at both Turquoise and Bordeaux (the wine bar next door). A wide choice of delicious Turkish foods, but I'm in a rut and always get the delicious lamb chops. I did try the Turkish old fashioned with date syrup and my husband had the Su Borek, both of which were very tasty!

    Soups, salads, and breads were excellent. I’ve mixed feelings about the appetizer, the grilled calamari, a bit under-grilled. The main courses were delicious but didn’t seem authentic Turkish, to me. Lacked that Anatolia flavorful spice mix. Seemed, to me, there was French cuisine influence in the preparation(?). The Imam Bayildi aka “Fainting Priest”, for example, its tomato sauce was too sweet, too tomatoey. But the eggplant and filling were very good. That’s what matters most anyway. The Sultan’s Delight was very tasty too and again without that signature Turkish pizzazz of spices dancing on my tongue. The drinks were wonderfully crafted. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive. Low mark on the practice of charging gratuity on taxes, not ok. Also, service fees after Covid or maybe for using credit(?), either way not ok. I may go again, to try different plates because overall it was a good dinner. I may recommend it depending on the person, because ultimately it’s very expensive, not for everyone. I haven’t found a replacement Turkish restaurant since Istanbul closed on Broadway so I’ll still be looking though. Anyway, to be fair to the establishment, I must add that I’m not a food and dining expert, I just know my own tastebuds and visit restaurants that range from $$ to $$$$ frequently. I think folks should try it, I enjoyed it, but others may enjoy it more than me.

    The food was good, but we got there at 7:15 on the dot for our 7:15 reservation and still had to wait to be seated. All tables were full, and there was another party ahead of us. While we were waiting, 4 other groups came in, and there was no room by the door for anyone to wait. They were obviously backed up and overbooked. We had to wait like 20+ minutes to be seated, and then once we were, nobody tended to us for nearly 25 minutes. No drink orders or water or anything. After 8:30, things relaxed significantly, but it was annoying that despite having a reservation and being on time, we had to wait so long. The food was good, but nothing out of the world or anything that I'd go out of my way to have again that I couldn't get elsewhere and with better service. The actual wait staff were great, but the whole 45 to 55 minutes debacle to get seated and tended to really sullied the experience.

    It was an extremely busy Saturday night and the servers had their hands full, trying to accommodate people in the upstairs dining room as well as the downstairs dining room. They are severely understaffed, so it took more than 20 minutes to get a cocktail, and half an hour after ordering for the food to arrive, but everyone was cordial and doing their best. Two of us ordered the Osso Buco which was grossly overcooked, and as a result very dry and very tasteless. Luckily, the mashed potatoes that accompanied the meat were edible. Another very solvable problem, however, is that we were seated at a four top right by the kitchen, next to a wall on which wine is stored. Because the table is falling apart, it has to be pushed up against the wall requiring people to sit with the corner of the wine chest taking up two feet of headspace over the table, so you had to sit with the corner of the chest within inches of your face. Instead of getting rid of the table and substituting another, they choose to keep it there and shove it up against this wall. All of this was understandable to some extent, until we saw them bring another folding table from the back room about an hour after we'd arrived, and set it up beside a table nearby in order to accommodate four more guests in a large party. So THEY HAD A TABLE they could have substituted all along, but instead made patrons suffer through this terrible experience. We were outraged, but suffered quietly. I would strongly recommend you never order the Osso Buco, never sit at a table near the kitchen and opt for any other night than a Saturday night to dine here. Otherwise, we've had some wonderful dinners here. Unfortunately, this was MOST DEFINITELY NOT one of those.
