No recognition of special occasion. We were seated promptly upon arrival, but the table next who was seated after us was greeted first as they ordered a bottle of wine from the Bar before being seated. Not necessarily a nice start for us.
Great smells coming out of the kitchen, food was hot and ok. Water glasses went empty for a while. When we finished our bread we received more bread, but not the oil and spices that went along with it until we asked.
My wife’s non-alcoholic drink too 25 minutes to come out. I ordered the baklava to-go and when I got home it looked as it they threw in two and a half small pieces haphazardly into the box and bagged it us. I wouldn’t come here again but it was still somewhat worthwhile of an experience for a first.
The brunch was okay. probably would have given a better rating if it was dinner time where food was made to order and had access to full menu.
The food was fantastic. I went with a group of friends for brunch, everyone was very pleased. We will be back.
Great food, excellent new restaurant!
What good fortune we had, coming in from out of town, and finding the Ottoman Taverna on Open Table. Our dinner was delightul, as was our waitress, Irem. My companions and and I enjoyed the Shepherd Salad, SIGARA BÖREĞI , MÜCVER , PATATES KÖFTE , Salmon, KÖFTE , and Cauliflower, all Mediterranean style dishes with a Turkish flair. I look forward to returning to this restaurant!
Eggplant purée was incredible
In order to enjoy Ottoman Taverna, a patron should have some familiarity with Mediterranean food. The chefs have taken the basics of eggplant, lamb, falafal and upgraded them. A pilaf isn't the same old pilaf you used to make. It's a fine, fluffy concoction. Ground beef and lamb kebobs are grilled to tender perfection. No skewers used here. The baklava contained pistachios...a totally different experience from the usual desserts purchased everywhere else. You will like this moderately priced NoMa restaurant. I look forward to returning when it isn't as noisy.
We loved our experience at Ottoman Taverna! It was busy but that didn’t stop our servers from being attentive and friendly. They even moved us to a table further from the door when I was cold. And the food — just incredible. We can’t wait to go back!!!
Delicious food and beautiful ambiance. They even give you tea after your meal which is quite delicious!
Beautiful large restaurant with light colored, modern decor. Seems to be popular with groups - there were several number 6-10 while we were there. They seemed to be short staffed so everything took longer so not a place to have a quick bite. But the environment is great if you are in for a leisurely lunch.
OT is my favorite Turkish restaurant, and one of my favorite restaurants overall. This was another enjoyable and tasty night out.
Great tapas and small plates.
Our server was absolutely amazing. We did restaurant week here and he accommodated the vegetarians in the group by allowing them to order options from other courses and increasing the portion size. The bartender was pretty slow and our drinks took very long. Food was very good as well- dips, and the potatoes cakes in addition to the Baklava were the groups favorites. Definitely recommend for big groups.
I am always on the lookout for good Turkish food after living in Istanbul for 3 years and Ottoman Taverna more than meets the challenge. The chef is from Istanbul and I feel like I'm back there every time I'm at Ottoman Taverna.
Efficient service and very good food!
Funda is wonderful!!! We had a great time and the food was soooo good. I highly recommend this restaurant
A real Turkish experience!
Great food and service. Loved the 4 course meal...very yummy.
We have eaten all over the country and the world ad the food was as good if not better than anywhere the dishes were presented beautifully they were light of super taste the staff was beyond great. I left a 30 percent tip. I have never done that
Great food. Fantastic menu options and well prepared. Very authentic to what we had in Turkey. Had a great time!
NYE, it was a pretty good deal and they had a fun ambience and good food. Overall good time
Super attentive service, beautiful space, wonderful food, excellent wine list - Ottoman Taverna has it all. The lentil soup, the hummus, tavuk (chicken), and the white bean stew were all amazing - as were the falafel and Sigar (fried feta wraps). We enjoyed both Turkish and Lebanese wines, and recommend this restaurant most highly!
Great experience with family style eating
Everyone was so incredibly nice, we were able to try a variety of dishes that they gave to us as complimentary . The food was amazing, was extremely happy with everything on the menu. Can not wait to go back and try some more dishes.
Food was so tasty, excellent service. Manager is walking around and serving himself. We got the 4 course fixed menu for $35 and portions were good size.
Superb restaurant! Amazing staff and food!
Wonderful food, very attentive service. Prix fixe menu was an excellent value. Highly recommend.
Excellent service and wonderful food.
This brunch is an exceptional value. The menu is extensive. I will definitely go back.
Wonderful food in a comfortable, quiet, grownup environment.
Absolutely wonderful experience. The management was awesome - the manager Alp was very welcoming and accommodating. We have the chefs mixed grill which was really delicious. Service was fast,l and hospitable. Absolutely zero complaints. I don’t think I’ve never had such a great dining experience.
The restaurant itself is really beautiful and just a great place to have an event/party or just a dinner.
Besides the food, which was cooked to perfection, the cocktails were also made with care. The Hurrem Sultan and Anatolian Fire were incredible. Very unique and delicious.
Once again I’d like to underline Alps professionalism. He was so great with giving us guidance on which foods my husband and I should choose.
I’ll definitely be coming back and recommending Ottoman Taverna to friends and family. Just completely pleasure. We are very excited to try the lunch menu!
Everything was perfect.
Food and service are simply exceptional!
Overall excellent food, service and ambiance. Highly recommend to everyone.
Wonderful all around. Deliciously spiced food, with just the right sized portions. we had the 4 course meal, and I would do it again.
Enjoyed the Turkish food AND the Turkish wine. We were part of a table for 6, with one couple originally from Turkey who did the ordering for us. They were very pleased with the authenticity and were speaking to our waiter in their language.
We had a great meal with friends. Excellent food and great service. Looking forward to next time.
Great food, chill ambiance. Try the mezze platters.
Beautiful space, healthy and honestly prepared gourmet food, top notch service. Nothing to disagree with at this location.
