Very classy place. The food was good though. However not what I was expected. Nice place!
We always like the food and service at Istanbul Grill, along with the beautiful dining room. We would highly recommend that you try it because you'll want to come back.
Food was terrific. Service was very good even though our server was new.
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.
What an incredible surprise. Authentic Turkish food! The Branzino is a must!
We absolutely love this restaurant. It is always top notch in service and quality of food.
Excellent Mediterranean cuisine. The chicken was bland, however. Overall very nice and quiet lunch. Recommend, 5 stars.
Our server was fantastic and offered a few different wines to pair with our meal. We had a great experience, the food was great and we will be back soon.
Very excellent and authentic Turkish/Med food. Highly recommend!!
This was an amazing restaurant. It was a great afternoon date place. The ambiance was mellow and casual. The food was amazing, and the staff were so nice and kind. I highly recommend this place
Great service. The food was great, especially the babaganoush.
I lamb shank was delicious. My wife, a vegan, loved the falafel platter. Great service
Great food and responsive service! We will definitely be back 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.
The food and service were both fantastic. The manager was about as friendly and helpful as any I have ever met.
It was amazing
Delicious food. Everything was great including the service despite the fact that two waitresses were quite stretched to take care of so many tables.
Wonderful food and service
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.
Classy attentive service, beautiful Turkish themed ambiance, elegant tablecloths, everything we ordered was absolutely delicious, particularly the lamb shank, baba ganoush, hummus, and rice desert. Wonderful experience.
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.
Absolutely fantastic restaurant! The food is out of this world, the service and ambience are excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. Our favorite place in Sundance Square.
It was great
Food was delicious. Very nice wine list.

We were served by one of the owners, very gracious and friendly. We'll be back.
Absolutely incredible food and service! Highly highly recommend!
Dolma and hot mixed appetizers were wonderful. All our entrees were $19. The meat kebabs were tasty but could have been more tender. My braised lamb shank was super tender and delicious.

Wow! Wow! Wow! The food was amazing and the staff was incredible. I had spicy ezmy for the first, but definitely not the last time. This will be on my permanent Fort Worth rotation,
Impromptu dinner date. It was PERFECT. We will definitely be back!!!
First time visit. Typical Mediterranean menu, good appetizer selections. White tablecloth lresentation and well managed staff. Appeared to be properly social distanced seating.
Do yourself a favor and save room for the rice pudding!!!!
Great food, wine selection and service
We enjoyed our night out.
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.
