Anatolia Mediterranean Cuisine
Posted by Justin on 01/30/2012
I'm middle eastern in background, so I have great deal of experience eating this kind of cuisine. Despite screwing up the order once, this restaurant had excellent service. The food quality was authentic and appreciated The atmosphere was nothing to be spoken of, good or bad, though I can imagine the place would be far too cramped if there were more people there. It is small. The good value was at times acceptable and at times terrible. For instance: The Yogurt (Cacik/taztziki) came in a sizable portion at a price of 6 dollars. The Shishkabab lunch special I ordered at a price of $11 dollars consisted of some lettuce, rice, and 3 tiny cubes of lamb amounting to no more than half a street hot dog in size or length. It was exquisitely pathetic and disappointing. All in all, a mixed review

This charming restaurant has excellent food and the staff is very attentive. They are happy to explain the food choices and make their own fresh hummus every day. The appetizer platters are large enough that you could forgo an entree unless you are a big eater. Highly recommend.

I have been to this Anatolia restaurant many times with relatives and friends. The food is tasty and the service is magnificent-I am not exaggerating. The waiter helped me friend decide on the dishes and his recommendations proved to be delicious. Their lunch special is definitely worth it. Anatolia gets my highest recommendation!

After the movies we decided to try this well-located spot. The hostess was very gracious. The service was helpful and polite. Most importantly, the food was very good quality. The Lamb Adana was excellent. My wife enjoyed her Chicken Shish Kebab. Both the grilled calamari and the stuffed grape leaves were well executed. The portions are most generous. A very good value and most enjoyable. We will definitely return.

Dined here a few weeks ago and everything was great. Fresh served bread basket that they kept refilling. Portions were generous and quality of food was great. The owner was friendly and thanked us at the end of our meal. Good service, will be back.

Last weekend, after getting out of the movies, we looked across and saw this restaurant & decided to try it. Absolutely a delicious surprise! As it's new (about 2 months new) not many people around...We decided to try their $20 per person menu. Loved it! Appetizers were hummus & something that had cheese in thin pastry...my fave! For dinner I tried Lamb Adana which was cooked to perfection. My husband tried their Grilled Bronzini which again was seaoned lightly, very very fresh & superb. For dessert we shared the rice pudding, another delicious must have...it's light & doesn't give you that heavy feeling... We will be back!
