Where I live, a great night of dining is the Outback Steakhouse, or if I am really lucky, Chilis - I love those baby back ribs! I want my Baby - Back - RIBS! Anyway, compared to good American style food, this place Beyoglu (I can't even pronounce it, its sounds foreign) is not good. It has like vegetables and weird meat and fishy stuff in all the dishes. I am a meat and potatoes guy, with a side of fries, or anything that is fried. Fried food is so much better, and its hot and fresh. Places like Chilis and TGIFs know what they are doing, thats why they are chain restaurants - cause their food is soo good they had to expand and make hundreds or thousands of restaurants to meet the demand for their excellent food! Next time you are in my neck of the woods (Ohio) you will see what I mean. My friend made me eat here, so it wasn't my choice, I wanted to go to TGIF's by penn station, and he said he wouldn't go there - go figure!

Saw this place and we decided to go in, we were told there was a 25 minute wait, but after seeing the food the waiter brought to a nearby table, we decided to wait at the bar. Thank goodness we waited; the menu is extremely reasonable and the service is wonderful! It may seem a little cramped to some, but with all of their doors open to the outdoor seating, it really becomes more intimate than cramped. Must try their tarama :)

Love this place! We live in the 'hood and discovered it on a random date night. This place rocks- as you can tell bc it is always packed. Things to go for: start with the cacik (sp?)- similar to tzatziki but smoother & creamier. Also good= the spinach appetizer. I would advise passing on the grilled shrimp app- you only get 3 pieces and they are small (but the tomato sauce RULES). As far as entrees- most people get the lamb kabob. I always spring for seafood. ***Trout special is fab. as is the swordfish kebob (a bit gamey...) You will love it! Sit upstairs for a more intimate setting.

an awesome place for dinner. the food was excellent, appetizers were very cheap, and very good, so maybe they're cheap so you can try them all! the hummus and bread are definitely something to pick. our entrees were absolutley delicious and very filling, not at all unreasonably priced either, probably one of the cheapest seafood dishes youll find in manhattan. the service was exceptional, always came by to fill bread, water or ask if everything way ok..truly a great place to go, and the atmosphere was very cool, if you want to sit outside, go on a bit warmer night, but all in all, we had a great dinner and a great time.. although the alcohol is quite expensive but where isnt it? thats they only thing that will make your bill a bit higher, but we will definitely be back!

Four of us came here to eat last night and we were not disappointed. The appetizers were wonderful - full of flavor and spice. The mashed eggplant salad was fantastic, especially with the bread and the octopus salad. We would definitely come back again. Service was great - the servers were nice and explained the ingredients to us without hesitation. We were so full from trying several different things.
