Great for a quick lunch or a leisurely dinner. There are a lot of different menu options to fit your food lifestyle. The food is authentic and delicious. There is a large outdoor patio. Unfortunately it doesn't have a view. Well worth the dinning stop.

I met a friend here for lunch and walking around the town. We were given a nice window seat. We had the loukaniko and falafel. Both were great--the loukaniko is a bit spicy. The service was very good, though it took awhile to get served. That wasn't a problem as it gave us time to visit. I'm looking forward to... More

Try to sit on the patio in the back. Lovely! Be sure to try the shrimp appetizer and the Brussels sprout side order. Avoid the nights with live music; it usually isn't great and is just annoying if trying to have conversation.

We love going to this restaurant. Their food is always consistently good whether you like seafood, beef or lamb or vegeterian. The four of us all had different menu items and were pleased with our choices. Our server was very professional and checked on us often although it was Restaurant Week and very busy. The onsite parking in the rear... More

We were coming from a friend's memorial service in Frederick and looking for a place to have a light meal. This small plates establishment came up, and we tried it. Ayse Meze had a very pleasant atmosphere and wait staff. My wife ordered the beef sis kebab, and I ordered the brussel sprouts. My wife enjoyed the beef sis kebab,... More

Very professional and good food. There are not on Market so I feel they know they have to be a step above. Also, they have parking which is awesome. Get the flaming cheese. Bar scene is casual and really nice. Music a lot of nights.

We've eaten at Ayse Meze several time, and every time the food, service and atmosphere is excellent. Love the "small plate" way to try several different things for dinner, all expertly prepared and very well conceived. Reminds us of our visits to Istanbul, Italy, Greece and the Adriatic.

I made a reservation for late in a weeknight for friends who were visiting from out of town, so we could catch a literature reading at Sky Stage. The staff called to inform that the grill would be closed when we got there. Rather than changing our plans, we stopped by early and pre-ordered our meal. The staff guided us... More

We were a party of 18, and had called for a last minute reservation. They managed to seat us by 8:00 pm. The table had one waiter, Glen. I was skeptical that he could pull it off. He did. Glen was terrific. Every order was delivered perfectly. No mistakes. Unbelievable. Only one issue: the restaurant ran out of steak. Two... More
