Great location in Dupont Circle area. Friday evening we were seated a few minutes before our actual reservation time. Wonderful service even in the relaxing outdoor seating area. Very prompt and attentive service. My wife dropped her fork and had barely picked it up and the server was already there with a clean set of silverware. Delicious appetizers and entrees.... More

The Turkish omelette with sujuk was really delicious. Portion is fair not too small and not too big. The waiter was helpful and accommodating . Very busy on Sunday brunch time. I bet when the weather is warmer the outside seating will be a great choice.

An excellent restaurant we ate at 4 nights out of 5! Really lovely food. Sadly our last night's experience was different as the manager was away and the place seemed to have fallen apart without a manager in charge. Still would recommend it but check the manager is present!

Found RT by accident for brunch. Saturday 10.30 we were first in. Good choice on menu. My Rancheros were excellent and my wife loved her eggs Florentine. Good coffee too. Friendly service. We leave DC tomorrow or we would go back

We came for brunch, and had traditional brunch items, which might not have been taking best advantage of their specialties. The service was attentive, and the food was properly prepared. We were seated next to the window in a corner, which made for great people watching, but it also made for sun in our eyes the entire meal, and a... More

I ordered : $13.00 Kiymali Pide minced lamb, peppers, onions, tomatoes, parsley and spices with touch of mozzarella. (See picture ) It was delicious!! I had eaten the warm pita... More

The signature Turkish dishes are quite good, as well as authentic. Rosemary's Lahmacun is as good or better than any you might order in Istanbul. For less adventurous diners, other more familiar menu options such as pasta and salmon offer lots of flavor. All in all, a great casual dining spot.

This as a modestly decorated causal restaurant serving Mediterranean fare, including fresh fish, seafood, homemade pasta and pizzas as well as Turkish kebabs and flatbreads that are called ‘Pide’. The restaurant has a quite large patio, which lends itself as a nice weekend brunch & daily happy hour environment. The noise level in the indoor section of the restaurant is... More

Service a little slow, but friendly and accommodating for special needs. Moderately expensive but worth it. Looks like a nice outdoors setting for dinner or lunch but the weather was not great when we were there.

Unbelievable menu options. Beef dumpling and lamb entrees were SUPERB! Recommended by our hotel, it was absolutely delicious. Also listed as a best "cheap eats" place in DC. Anyone yearning for delicious Mediterranean food will not be disappointed.
