We have been to Ayse Meze several times on dates, with friends, and always leave happy. However, for anyone who hasn't been here, be aware that it will get pricey fast if you order several tapas dishes on a non-promotional weekend. Restaurant week deals here...More

First off, don't miss this place! The Turkish/Greek/Middle Eastern food is wonderfully prepared with some unique recipes, and beautifully presented--try anything, you can't go wrong!

This is my husband and I's favorite restaurant for a nice romantic evening. Their food and drinking is wonderful, the service is good and the atmosphere is romantic if occasionally a little noisy. Their Saganaki is to die for!

I had a working dinner with a group of friends and I ordered "keftedes," which was beef and lamb meatballs with Yukon potatoes. I wanted a light dinner, and what I ordered was just exactly what I wanted. The meatballs and potatoes were both delicious...More

We got in late and this restaurant sounded just right for our travel-weary selves. At 8 pm, the restaurant was absolutely empty--even with live music, which should have been a warning to us. The waitress kept trying to sell us on the high-end dishes, and...More
