On a cold winter day I was able to dine al fresco at my favorite neighborhood restaurant; the combination of the warming sun, heat lamp, and remarkably kind service by Hasan and Can made it a memorable experience. The muhammara dip was spicy and had a great texture, and I highly recommend the tender mucver patties. Try the Rochefort Trappist beers and/ or Efes. I’m still feeling warm a day later. Bravo!
I absolutely LOVED the bottomless brunch they offer. The food was extremely unique and flavorful, and there was so much variety as part of the brunch menu. The staff is so kind and friendly, offering suggestions and answering all our questions. I’m already finding a time to make my way back to Meze.
Wonderful service and delicious food!
Celebrated New Years Eve at Meze, wonderful experience. Alive and fun. You can tell there is culture beyond the typical. It’s real and that means something if you want an experience beyond food (which is also excellent).
Fast, efficient, and gracious.
A nice Thursday evening with the folks at Meze… nothing better. -Kevin
Evening at Meze / Sights, sounds, smells—the atmosphere / Hagia Sophia
I can’t stay away from Meze. I’m addicted. I’ve always been hard-pressed to find a DC restaurant that is consistently superior, but now I have. Food, service, and atmosphere (including outside in the cold, which I love) are always first-class. I recommend dining outside under the heat lamps, which are quite effective. Thanks, Meze! -Kevin
This was another lovely evening at my favorite neighborhood place. Tonight I got some of my favorite dishes, including the Brussels sprouts. Hasan was very attentive and engaging, enhancing the experience. It was delightful to sit outside under a strategically deployed heat lamp, making for a cozy time.
The brunch is well worth the price plenty of food and drink
The restaurant’s menu is extensive with classic Turkish dishes. Prices are very reasonable. The food was tasty. Wine list is limited and unfortunately only 3 Turkish reds, one of wish was out of stock. Service was extremely friendly. Ambience is a bit bar-like. I definitely would return.
Never disappoints. We got the meat platter. We ate so much of it. It’s hard to stop eating it because it is soooo delicious. We tried the pink mojitos for the first time. So refreshing.
Turkish cuisine (and culture in general) is a great favorite with our family and Meze recommendations and menu (we're vegetarian) set our expectations high - Happy to report they were exceeded! Meze is now one of our favorite restaurants. The quality of the food - taste, texture and time to table is uniformly top notch. We ordered the aromatic red lentil soup, the red pepper spread, a spinach "tortellini" like pasta in a tomato and tangy yoghurt sauce, an amazing warm eggplant and mushroom spread - each dish better than the next. When I asked my wife her favorite she selected everything. The service was friendly and efficient. We originally chose to eat inside, but the weather was mild and we ate outside (COVID times) - either way, congenial and promoting a pleasant meal. My wife loves the central asian cheese/pistachio/shredded phyllo desert Kanafeh and Meze is famous for their's - she was ecstatic - I just had a Turkish coffee for dessert which was quite good and absolutely authentic (not easy to find even in Istanbul). Great place to share with friends and family.
We had a really nice meal and were able to sit outside even though it was a bit chilly. They made sure we had a heater close by, and the tent kept us warm. The food was outstanding, especially the lamb kabob. And the service was exceptional. It was a wonderful night out.
All you care to eat and drink brunch food was served. quickly and hot. Menu selections are plentiful. Service was "top shelf"!
This was fantastic! We went for brunch and did the Bottomless option. We asked our server to just select dishes for us...and everything he chose, wasn’t necessarily what I would have chosen...and it was utterly fantastic! Highly recommend!!
This was another lovely dining experience in my neighborhood. Meze was delightful as always. The team was attentive, efficient, and courteous. The hellemi (aka halloumi) was baked perfectly, and we ordered a dish that was new to us: pickles. The latter was a combination of pickled vegetables, very refreshing on a cool fall evening (dining al fresco). I recommend the crisp Efes pilsner, which nicely complements many of the dishes on the menu. Thank you, Meze! -Kevin
As usual, I had a marvelous time dining at Meze last evening. It’s my neighborhood favorite! The food was delicious; we tried a new dish consisting of phyllo-wrapped feta; it was mouthwatering. The ensemble of staff and the friendly manager engaged us kindly throughout the meal, and one of our usual servers, Can, came over just to say hello. We sat outside under the heat lamp and listened to the music that bathes 18th Street. I’m looking forward to my next visit—very soon! -Kevin
I had another wonderful dining experience at Meze, sitting outside under a heat lamp and watching all the folks go by. As usual, the service provided by Can and his colleagues was outstanding, very attentive. My meal was great, and the baked hallemi cheese in particular was lovely. I’m glad that Meze has Rochefort Trappiste beer in addition to Turkish favorites. Wonderful! I’m so glad I live in the neighborhood.
Awesome place and location. Our server, Can was very friendly and professional. The food was beyond being delicious. Definitely would come back here soon!
Wonderful restaurant with great food and outstanding service. The bottomless brunch is fantastic and highly recommended.
This is my neighborhood favorite. Hasan serves with flair!
This is our favorite neighborhood spot. We always have a splendid time! Highly recommend.
We have eaten at Meze many times and are never disappointed. We get wonderful service and delicious food.
Everything was outstanding. From the beginning when we asked for a recommendation on a choice of a Turkish wine, which was awesome, we had a great experience. There were 5 of us, so we tried a lot of appetizers, salads, and entrees and all were outstanding. Ending with Turkish coffee is the best. I would especially note service, always there when needed, but not intrusive. Fun area, lot of things going on. Highly recommend.
Service and ambiance was great. Food was OK too but I remember food quality was better a few years ago. Both sigara boregi and mucver needed to be fried more and crispier, and liver was slightly overcooked. Levrek was delicious but a small portion. Steak and fries was just right at a very good price.
This is the second time that we have dined there(outside).
Both times we have been impressed by the delicious food and extraordinary service. We understand that this is family owned and operated. We certainly felt that our dining satisfaction was very important. We definitely will recommend Meze to others and dine there again.
This was one of THE BEST brunch spots I’ve been too and I’ve been to a lot! The food was delicious, excellent service. Great menus selection. 10/10 would come back and recommend.
Charming restaurant EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR VEGANS and VEGETARIANS
Meze experience, all you can drink & bottomless plates, so it is worth it. Came here for brunch for a friend's birthday and the staff were extremely nice and the food was great.It was busy .early table was empty when we leaving the time .It was full restaurant.
Dip not ::, the servers were amazing and the food was delicious. Would definitely come here again.
Brunch was so fun, our server was very friendly and informed us really well. We tried bottomless option and it was perfect, they have such a huge food menu for $35 and unlimited drinks are included in the price, the restaurant was fully packed so serving delay is understandable. You should definitely try it, hands down it was the best brunch experience we had around the town.
Really enjoyed our brunch at Meze - The unlimited all you can eat and drink is actually that - you can just keep ordering food after food so come hungry!! We loved the cheese rolls and the hummus and the french toast.
This place has bad service which doesn’t make the bottomless food and drink worthwhile. Literally tried to flag down the waiter after our drinks were empty for 10 mins and they ignored us. If you are looking for better service look elsewhere, I was very disappointed in this place. Been here a few times and tried to give this place a chance a few times and it was the same issue.
Lacked bringing drinks at all.
Wonderful service, beautiful outdoor patio and street set up. Can't say enough about the service and the mojitos!
The appetizers and main dishes were delicious and well-prepared--muhammara and Brussels sprouts were a revelation. So good! The levrek/branzino was absolutely delicious. The Arnavut Ciger/Albanian liver was okay, good enough but could have been better (this is a dish I look forward to and that I've had many times in Turkey, where it's usually spectacular. Here, it was good but not so tender and succulent as the best--maybe U.S. calves liver isn't as young as what's used in Turkey?). The Turkish coffee and shared kunefe were a perfect send-off for our meal. The kunefe was out of this world.
Our waiter was excellent--attentive and friendly, even through his mask!
It was delightful dining al fresco on 18th Street. As usual, the food was delicious and our server, Hasan S, was very attentive and engaging.
YO! I have passed this spot many a time, but never considered going in. I am so glad I finally stopped by. Everything about this restaurant is terrific. Service, ambiance, location, and of course the food. So rich, filling, and delicious. I am going to need to make many returns to make my way through the menu.
They have the best brunch around Adams Morgan area. The food was delicious and you can try many dishes with bottomless option, also the service was great we would definetly come back.
Nice surprise! Confirmed outside seating and table ready on time. Wait staff was attentive, drinks were delicious and food was unusual and yummy. One hot cheesy dessert was the best name escaping me. And pita was also great.
Incredibly kind management, very accommodating for a party of 12 - even though we made the reservation last minute. Good food, knowledgeable waiters. Definitely a little loud as the night wore on, but that's to be expected when eating outdoors on a busy street. Our group agreed they would all return.
