Fantastic lunch! – What a great menu, so many unique vegetarian choices as well as meat dishes.we ordered the calamari appetizer and the hummus/bread. Calamari was delish, lightly breaded rings with a mild creamy dipping sauce. Hummus was fresh as expected. Main dsh was crab cakes and my friend had the greek salad. Both excellent.
No complaint about the service. The main dining area is packed with too many tables, and patrons and staff have a difficult time navigating.The room is very noisy, but i was there with a girlfriend and her 5 year old so it was fine.
Prices are more than reasonable for the quality. Would def come back but probably for lunch, too noisy for my taste for dinner. But you could choose to sit outside if you like.
NO BABIES ALLOWED! – I wanted to take my parents here after I heard someone talking about this place. I have a one year old son, so we tried to get there early before the dinner rush. We were denied entrance to the restaurant because my son was in his stroller. As we tried to go in, an employee came running to the door and told us we could not eat here because we had a stroller. I asked her if I could fold the stroller and put it somewhere, and she told me "no strollers allowed." That being said I will never return to this restaurant, and have told my friends (with and without kids) not to eat here. I have never heard of such a thing in a neighborhood full of families. We did end up going to a Chinese restaurant next door that had great service, great food and allowed is to bring the stroller inside.
Don't waste your time and money – I went with a group of friends of mine at this restaurant and we served dinner. The service was terrible; the waiter confused our food and the busboy did not clean the table after we served appetizers. He said to us that they are very busy. The waiter did not understand what we ordered and he brought us salmon instead of swordfish. Also, the place is very noisy, very unpleasant for a good conversation. Moreover, we saw bugs on the table and I gave up to serve my dinner.
My advice is that you do not waste your time and money in this restaurant.
One of the best Turkish restaurants in NYC!!! – For sure, one of the best Turkish restaurant in NYC!!! The atmosphere is fun and great for people-watching. The waiters are also super-friendly and informative, and most importantly, the food is DELICIOUS!! I'm Turkish, so I know what I'm talking about. Everything, from the many appetizers, to the main courses, to the desserts, and the full bar with Turkish wines was fantastic!! Can't wait to go back!
Favorite UES Spot – Beyoglu is my favorite UES spot, it is divine! Everything on the menu is amazing, so fresh with such great flavors! When you step into Beyoglu you feel as if you have stepped right into Turkey! Enjoy!
Come with a group so you can try everything – I went with a group of three people and we ordered 7 Meze (like tapas, small appetizer portions) to share. We had hummus, a tapenade of peppers and olives, falafel, a spinach yogurt sauce, these feta rolls, tomato soup with goat cheese- it was all delicious. And all of it served with unlimited fluffy, tasty bread. We all ate our fill and it only cost $45 total. Not bad for Upper East Side and a great place to sample great Mediterranean cuisine.
Discriminating – Called last night for a reservation for two persons and a baby in a stroller...
"Oh! My God! in a stroller!", "Yes, I would have given you a reservation if you were only two... we are very busy".
Not a family restaurant but still, I found the attitude quite discriminating, rather than proposing an hour when they are less busy...
I leave it to your appreciation... cannot give them a good rating.
Very affordable and excellent atmosphere – I can't believe this place is on the UES, it's a great place and very cheap. I recommend getting a sampler platter.
Great Food, Great Service, Great Prices...Need anything more? – My husband and I have been here several times, and really enjoy the food and the atmosphere. We usually just get a bunch of Tapas and share. Love their hummus, and feta rolled in phyllo dough! We typically go on Fridays and it is really busy, but we have not made reservations and we luck out with getting a table rather quickly! The service is very good.
You can eat a lot of food and have a few glasses of wine and not break the bank here! Their prices are very good!
FUN-FUN-FUN – I rarely take the time to write a review , but i had to share. My company had its annual party at Beyoglu.
It was great. Different from any other year.. The food kept arriving throughout the night. The vodka we had ordered came incased in ice in the form of a giant cristal how did they do it? We were served platters of kebabs, and whole branzino, and stripped bass. The big surprise was the belly dancer,which danced with almost all( the ones that were not shy) that just transformed the entire room. The staff was attentive and welcoming, They told us that our party was on the same day as an important eastern islamic holiday, and they gave treated us with hommemade turkish delight. Everything was simply supperb. Most of us will be going back for New Years Eve , their menu is for the evening is amazing. Thanks Dan for choosing Beyoglu, and thank you Beyoglu staff. To all reading : I hope you all enjoy Beyoglu as much as us at AVIS New York.
