Such an amazing place: I loved everything about it but food was superb: Adana Kebab, Pide, Turkish coffee chocolate cake! Staff was very friendly. Portions are tapas size.

We were in DC for business trip and seen this restaurant highly recommended on Trip Advisor. We failed to read that reservations were needed; We walked in and were fortunate enough to swipe up some seats on a cancelled reservation! Best cocktails and food to date! A must stop restaurant!

Great menu, great prices, great service, great for dates...what more can we say?? Some new menu choices that we can suggest, although everything is delicious, the baked oysters and the fried mussels were exceptional!

We had the tasting menu with wine tonight and it was just wonderful. Some of the highlights were the stuffed grape leaves, lamb chops and octopus. All were paired with exotic wines. The service was attentive and informed. The venue was a tad noisy but the restaurant was busy. Have to try this restaurant if in DC.

Went with my wife + 2 friends. We all really enjoyed it. It's small plates. Well worth the splurge -- of 12 dishes plus drinks and desserts, only 1 item we wouldn't order again, and several we wish we had more room for extra orders.

We will return when back in DC.
