Istanbul Bar and Grill was one of the loveliest meals I have had in glossop.
Celebrating a 60th birthday the food was to die for, something to suit everyone.
I could eat it all over again!
The staff were amazing too!
I’ll definitely be coming here again!

Had a really enjoyable evening. Service was good, food excellent, especially the fish. Nice friendly time and the chef took time out to ask for our feedback and even gave my wife a kiss on the cheek! One thing that needs addressing is the entrance as I feel that people are put off as they do not see anyone downstairs.All the action is on the first floor!

We had a lovely meal at the instability grill in Glossop. The food was lovely and fresh, and the staff were very attentive. Very reasonable price too. We will be coming back I’m sure.

I enjoyed my fish cake starter. The mixed sizzler (chicken and lamb) was quite spicy considering I had gone for the medium option of heat. There also wasn’t anywhere near enough rice with it so ended up leaving quite a bit as it really needed something with it to complement the hotness of it.

We were a table of 12 including children and a toddler. The food was delicious for both children's meals and adults. The service was excellent and the children loved being able to see the chefs working on the kitchen. We can't wait to come again.

We were staying in Glossop for a few days and decided to go here for our anniversary meal, we weren’t disappointed, we had a lovely meal with beautiful fresh food. Also very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend and go again when we are next in the area.

Absolutely delicious food - I'm dreaming about when we can next go back it was so good. We had veggie/vegan options and they were amazing. Great choice on the menu too, and they were able to cater for our specific needs in addition.

Service was perfect - attentive but not overwhelming. All staff, including the chef, were superbly friendly and professional.

Great atmosphere. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely Thursday evening. Food was great. We had a starter and were given complimentary balloon bread and garlic butter. Worth getting a starter just for that. I had the Moussaka and my daughter had the lamb shish thing. I exchanged my rice for chips which were fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble. It was a bit quiet. However, we had a fabulous meal and it is a very lovely environment.

Really disappointed with the service and food at Istanbul. We were sat for 15 minutes before we were offered a drink. The wrong bottle of wine was brought out. There were flies in my wine glass.

The starters were ok, but came before our drinks! The mains were dear and of poor quality (mixed sizzler & feta pida).

Wish I could be more positive about a local restaurant. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

We went on a Tuesday evening. It’s a shame that it was fairly quiet but to be expected mid week (I’m in the catering business so know that feeling very well)

I would definitely recommend this place for food

Been there a few times, always had good food and service. My only issue was being seated downstairs which we were told was because we booked online and not by phone. So if you want the total package including good ambiance I would suggest that you do not book online.

Had a really good time with family on a Saturday night. Also despite some reviews the service was very good. By the clean plates at the end of the meal I can only say the food was great.

Visited this restaurant 3 times on a Saturday in last 12 months and each time the service has been appalling. Last night was no exception. Table not ready on arrival, meals arrived late and at different times, one meal was uncooked and had to be sent back. We were not alone, at least 4 other tables experiences the same. Will never go again on a Saturday. Be warned!!

Fantastic food when it came. Service on the night wasn’t the best, either our mains were forgotten or it was too busy for the amount of chefs/staff working on the night. It took 2hours 35 mins for only 2 courses. I hope it’s not like that usually and it was just a one off.
It won’t stop us from going back and trying it again though.

We enjoyed a good three course meal of Turkish style, and soft drinks, with efficient, friendly service. We would like a little more choice and information for the desert course.

Visited for a birthday celebration, food was excellent as was the service. A touch in the pricy side but I would say this is a special occasion place and the price was by no means unreasonable given the outstanding quality of the food. Our only slight complaint was that the décor could have been finished to a higher standard given the prices but it was still a perfectly pleasant place to sit and dine. Will definitely visit again.
