After reading many of the reviews about this restaurant, we decided there were enough good reasons to give this place a chance. We were all glad we did. The service was perfect! The food was delicious (and yes...try the hummus and the "pita" bread). My one piece of advice for anyone going here might be to try and go early before they get busy. We went at 6:30 on a Saturday night (and made reservations). My one piece of advice for the restaurant might be to add about 4 inches to each side of the table so that when plates accumulate it isn't quite so crowded.

Great food at reasonable price. However, they dont seem to be friendly to families so if you have kids, dont go there. No strollers are allowed inside the place and they are not happy to accomodate you at all....you get the ugly looks even if your child is in his/her best behavior! I would say that the service is poor and that is a shame because the food is actually great.

Beyoglu has become "our kitchen" since we live in the neighborhood and can pop in a few times a week to share their small delicious plates --- hummos, shepard's salad, sardines, spinach. The grilled chicken and fish is excellent. We are never disappointed by either the food or the service, which may not be overly friendly but it is professional ---they get the job done.

I love the food here, but find it noisy and drafty - hard to hear our conversations. Also, very cold and impersonal service.

A firiend of my girlfriend's recommended this place to us. What a great place for a reasonable dinner. The Turkish food was delicious but the service was a bit slow.

I was referred to this restaurant by a colleague and boy was she right! I was wanting a greek salad and she mentioned this place had a good one. Not only is there greek salad DELICIOUS and HUGE for the price, but the Hummus and other appetizers was phenomenal. Very pleased with the food! I also enjoy the warm, yummy bread that comes to the table. Highly recommended, not badly priced, romantic atmosphere and great service. Two thumbs up!

It's such a shame that such a delicious and cozy restaurant has to have such poor service. I've been to Beyoglu several times and only ONCE was I moderately pleased with the service. All other times I've been there the waiters have taken an incredibly long time to greet us and ask us for a drink, let alone take our orders. In many ways, ordering food and getting what you want at Beyoglu feels like pulling the teeth of the waiters. The last two times the waiter approached the table as though it was painful to even speak to us, let alone be our "server." We are very kind, very nice tippers, and yet the treatment we receive at Beyoglu is flat-out subpar. Waiting for an equally delicious Mediterranean restaurant to open in the East 80s ...
