Beware the take-out policy! If you get one order of hummus, they give you one delicious hot bread. If you get TWO orders of hummus, you still only get one bread. If you want two breads, they charge $1.50 for the "extra bread." That policy rubs me the wrong way.

If it wasn't for the pretentious European hostesses the place would be close to perfect. Try the hummus.

I'd recommend Beyoglu to a smaller party looking for a decent mediterranean meal at a good price. The entrees are sizeable, flavorful, and reasonably priced. I'd recommend the hummus and octopus appetizers - which are only approx $5 each and very filling. Our experience with the service was favorable too. Overall, for a lower-end mediterranean restaurant, this place is great.

I have been here twice and am happy with the food, the variety and the cost. However, the service is a bit rude, beginning with the person at the front desk. When told "5-8" minutes for a table for two we waited close to 30 minutes. There were tables for four open that they would not seat us at but gave to parties of three coming in after us (without reservations). When we asked about our progress one time, the women, who avoided eye contact at all cost, was contradictory and not at all gracious. We were then almost immediately seated in an upstairs room that was pleasnat and had plenty of open seats. An honest evaluation of the expected time would give customers the opportunity to make a choice of whether or not to wait. The experience left a bad taste and I doubt I will return.

I live in the area and am surprised at the bad/lukewarm reviews. We've been several times and think it's pretty good. It's not Daniel, but it's not supposed to be. It's a solid, reliable Mediterranean restaurant that's not expensive. The fact that there is inevitably a line to get a table says a lot for Beyoglu's quality.

This is the third time that I have eaten here with a group and every time everyone was totally satisified. Plenty of choices, including daily specials, so everyone could pick their favorites. The vegetarian platter works great as an appetizer for a group. Can't wait to return.

I don't know what the other people are talking about in some of these reviews. I've been to Beyoglu dozens of times and the food is always good, the service is always with a smile, and the value can't be beaten. This place has a line out the door every night of the week and that isn't because people have "low expectations" on the Upper East Side. Are you kidding? It's crowded because it's GOOD!
