Istanbul Grill is one of those special gems that you will always feel so fortunate to have found. We visited pre-pandemic and loved it so much! To celebrate my mom’s first post-COVID vaccine outing, she wanted to drive two hours one-way to Fort Worth to eat here again. It was just as delicious and perfect as we had remembered. The cold appetizer platter is the perfect starter. We love the lamb shank but actually order it for the eggplant purée. It’s so divine. We also enjoyed the baklava and Turkish coffee for dessert. Jonathan couldn’t have been nicer and more courteous as a server. Absolutely exceptional. Every member of the team is this way. The atmosphere is perfect. I have zero negative things to say about this place, except that it’s too much of a drive to do more often. But we look forward to visiting every few months now that we are starting to venture out again.

Comfort food with a Turkish twist. We had a fabulous dinner on a chilly night. Inventive appetizers, cocktails and even a delicious Turkish beer. Lamb stew is a must and will be a regular meal. Attentive service and great value. Don’t miss the baklava....pure butter.

Saturday night 13Feb2021. Our second visit this year. Outstanding again, so highly recommended. This time we got the hot starter appetizer plate, and while it was outstanding, we actually prefer the cold appetizer plate, as it has variety more suitable for us, like the hummus and yogurt dip. The wife's salmon kebabs arrived well done, but this was quickly corrected to the rare side of medium as ordered. My grilled chicken kebabs were super. Not a lot of vegetable with the kebabs, but the amount of chicken was very good. Good volume of rice. The baklava was excellent, as was the Turkish coffee, complete with plenty of residue which demonstrates authenticity. The only minor negative was that the wine was a bit on the expensive side at $40 for a bottle of $9 wine, but considering this establishment is quite upscale in downtown Fort Worth, ok we go with it. Overall: Super. Highly recommended.

Always love the food here. Everything is outstanding. We had the hot sampler appetizer with a bit of everything. All of it was cooked perfectly and delicious. The Falafel Dinner was excellent. They were perfectly fried and not greasy at all. They were served with tasty hummus, delicious rice and vegetables. They also serve fresh olives with every meal and free hot pita bread. Service is great too. Definitely a gem in Sundance Square!

Everything was wonderful, as usual, but a table of adults and children opted to play games loudly on their phones that was disturbing everyone. The manager asked them to turn down/mute. They refused.

Even with obvious short staffing and no bartender, the timing and delivery of the cocktails, appetizer plate, hunkar begendi, and salmon kebab was very good. Every one of the mixed cold appetizers and the two main dishes were absolutely delicious.
