I eat there often and the food is very good as is the atmosphere. Wine glasses are generous. Service depends on who you get. Most are attentive others are not. Now that it is hot my guest and I were very uncomfortable there last night as the airconditioning does nothing for the room. Also they insist on keeping the doors/windows open for the people eating outside. I cannot go back unless they fix the airconditioning, on hot summer days. I told the manager, he agreed but I think nothing can be done.

I absolutely love their salads! The hummus is great - but as mentioned in many other reviews, they never provide enough bread. But no big deal about that. What irks me the most about this place, is if you go there after 9 pm, they are always out of the lamb! They should really tell you what they are out of immediately when you sit down. Other than that, food is great - services is pretty slow. I will continue to go here as prices are affordable.

My husband and I only eat at 2 restaurants on the UES. BEYOGLYU and Mangiarini. As a former Chef I am somewhat picky about dropping money at a place that is not worth it. For the last 5 years we have been coming to Beyoglu (esp. in the summer with our dog) and it has been consistanly good!! The food is great, the service is delightful and the owner Giorgio is on of the nicest owners/managers I have ever met in the business. All of the staff make the extra effort to ensure a great experience....and it works! It all works! So we say thank you to the entire team of Beyoglu! You are all doing a great job and we'll see you soon!

Beyoglu is always busy - probably because you can always come here and get excellent food at a very resonable price. I always look forward to the appetizers here, especially the hummus (it's one of the best). The food, atmosphere and service have always been reliable. I love this place - it's one of my favorites in the neighborhood.

It's striking that this place does not have even a high chair. When asked about this, the manager with an attitude stated "its not that we're against children, but we don't make special accomodations for children". ! I'm not crazy about screaming kids, but the adults next to us had consumed LOTS of wine and could be heard down the block, and their kids were running around between tables. Guess thats better than a baby, right? Would have walked out, but food is spectacular. Rude, inefficient service (1 pita for 3 adults)..2 requests to get a second. Only delivery for me now.

The food here is good. I don't understand why the service is so poor. First of all, don't ever sit upstairs, they will forget you and you will proceed to advanced age before they remember you are there. Second, order straight from the menu and don't take the advice of the waiters, they could really care less whether you get what you want or like it. We rarely go here but have a relative who loves their food so much we cannot deny her. I never usually hesitate before leaving a tip but at this place I never know what to do. Why the attitude of the servers is tolerated by the management I don't know but surely they know. Now that there is a very good turkish place on Second in the seventies we will switch over completely.

So I am not the only one to think good food alone won't make a restaurant. I think Beyoglu survives despite the poor service not just by waiters also the management; they are very rude. If their location was not supurb (surrounded by Upper East siders who don't like to cook) they would be out of business by now. I have been boycotting them for a long time and using the word-of-mouth to change their attitude to no avail.
