Last night I ate for the first time at the Istanbul Grill, celebrating my friend's 80th birthday with 21 others. From the moment we walked in, I felt welcomed and well-cared for by the host and then the four servers who took care of this large party for the two and a half hours we celebrated there. The waiters and... More

We get to this area about once a year and never miss a chance to eat here. Today we drove 45 minutes out of our way just to have the mix cold appetizer plate and the Hunkar Begendi. You have to try this restaurant! True authentic food!

I had the hummus to start. It was a little thinner than I usually prefer, but wonderful flavor. I asked for carrots instead of pita, and they brought that plus some fresh cucumber. I got the Mediterranean salad with grilled chicken. Lots of chicken and it was grilled to perfection. Salad seemed nice and fresh. A really nice, simple but... More

This was our first experience with Turkish/Mediterranean fare and we left quite pleased with the fusion of flavors offered. We ordered Chicken Adana and chicken, beef, and lamb kebobs. The pita bread and spread starter was absolutely delicious as was our meal. We found our server to be helpful and the overall ambiance was nice. We went in the late... More

First time I came here, everything went wrong. Recently went to lunch and realized I must have caught this place on a really bad night. This time, everything was great, from the service to the outstanding food. Appetizers, beef kabob, rice, grilled veggies...all were perfect. The fried zuccini is a must....Great place!

Our family has been frequenting Istanbul Grill for years now. Wether we dine in or take out the food is always as described. We have tried just about everything and have not been disappointed. The falafel plate and Shepard salad can't be beat. After we got our take out order home one evening, we found the order was not exactly... More

Went to lunch with a group of ladies and found the service to be lacking. We had reservations and were promptly seated but had to ask to be waited on. We did receive water but took a while for our orders to be taken. I did notice eye rolling between our server and another in reference to our table. I... More

I went here for desert with a few friends. What I discovered was a fresh take on dessert. The baklava served here is not your typical flaky baklava. It is moist, rich in flavor (kind of like a really good home made pecan pie filling in regards to texture and taste), and it is better than any other baklava I've... More

The food is excellent, fresh, and plentiful. This is a must visit place if you are looking to sample Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food. Don't be afraid of whats on the menu, sample it all, find out what you like, it is all delicious!

Our favorite meal since the time we met was served in Dubai at a simple Lebonese restaurant. Our experience at Istanbul Grill took us back there. The atmosphere was soothing and relaxing and the meal was served fresh off the grill. My husband was reluctant to order the lamb shank, but ever so glad he changed his mind because he... More
