Very nice restaurant, interesting menu, very good food and terrific service. The "cigars", all dips, kibby, etc. were all terrific. Wish we had ordered even more.

Went to this restaurant to celebrate a Birthday. Small servings to share but individually you could have two or more items for full meal.

Great selection even for a gluten free vegetarian and excellent food. Tremendous brussel sprouts and spanakopita and they offer gluten free pita as an extra.Pleasant wait staff and nice ambience with very reasonable prices. Deserving of its rating as best in Frederick.

Owner is from Turkey we were told. The food was fantastic! We had homemade pita bread, hot and soft with olive oil. Tried the spread sampler- delicious. We tasted all of the spreads and should have ordered another type of sampler and called it lunch. We all ordered the gyro with fries or salad. The gyro was full of flavor... More

Have eaten here many times in the past few years and love it. Food is always amazing and staff of great. The small plates allows you to try different foods. The bigger your group, the more you can try! I'm super picky so only eat the Greek salad and saganaki (flaming cheese) but my husband, and every other person we've... More

Did not expect to find such quality Mediterranean food in Frederick, MD. I did the sampler plate of 6 different spreads and then the Biftek which was cooked perfectly medium rare, which is hard to get these days. Bartenders were very helpful guiding me through the menu. Wish I could have tasted the whole menu!

Sometimes I wonder how 5 star reviews are created...trust it could be just an unfortunate service for lunch, which was planned as a Birthday treat for our friend. So, here we were, on a lazy Tuesday, dressed up, and in great spirits. The restaurant was nearly empty (with 3 tables occupied), and the gorgeous September weather dictated to an outside... More

OK, I've reviewed Ayse Meze before and raved. I've taken people there who raved. My wife and I went for dinner in Sept 2016 only to come away mystified, disappointed, and almost angry at how POOR it was. What happened to this great restaurant? When I asked our waitress if they had a new chef, her answer was Yes. Aha!... More

Lots of flavor in the Adana Kabob served on a bed of rice with sauce. Greek salad was basic without kalamata olives. and enough cucumbers but was Ok with vinegar and oil
