Very good. Loved the trip to Turkey menu and the service was incredible.
Amazing food. Great service. It's absolutely an undervalued gem. I go here every two weeks and never had a bad dish. Best Turkish food in town (yes I tried them all)
This place is a hidden gem. Amazing service and food ! Don’t miss out on this place! no wonder they are in the Michelin guide, well deserved. Can’t wait to come back!
Service and food was excellent!!
It was a great experience and we enjoyed the bottomless menu and it was reasonably priced for the food . The only think that we dido not like is that they don’t allow take outs and there was so much food left so that doesn’t really makes sense .
The food quality is always consistently good. Unlimited mimosas and unlimited food. Super nice staff and great experience.
A Master’s class reunion!
Mom and nana were in town.
We sat outside, had drinks, appetizers, and dessert. The food and drinks were very good. The service was perfect.
Delicious food and an energetic atmosphere and vibe.
Great food and ambiance. I'd like to go back again!
Fabulous food and service!
The Adana Beef I had was delicious but the chicken my wife ordered was terrible. It was plated like sushi with a lovash bread wrapped around and what seemed like tasteless tomato sauce on top, chicken was bland. We sent the dish back and they still charged us for it. We aren't the type to make a deal so we paid for it but felt that was a classless move on the restaurants part to not take it off the bill. Its also not a dressy restaurant, people were wearing hoodies and t shirts and there were kids there at 9pm. I just wasn't aware of the dress code so on us really.
Great food and atmosphere. Our server was somewhat attentive, but a bit distracted at times.
Excellent food and wine! They should probably dim the lights/turn off the white lights along the walls, makes it look like they’re closing up.
Good food, nice ambiance, lot of vegetarian options.
Really enjoyed talking with each member of the staff, very warm and attentive. Food was delicious and well presented.
We went for the Brunch Buffet on Sunday but were disappointed with the food choices. The service & ambience were good.
It is a good restaurant for lunch & dinner but would not recommend for Brunch. Rather do a la carte and you will have a better experience.
This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in DC. Not only is the food delicious, but the staff is so nice and accommodating. I went twice in one week and both times, I had the same server and she was absolutely the sweetest and made the experience that much better every time. I have recommended this place to many of my friends who reported back with the same feedback. Outstanding food and the best staff- thank you Ottoman Taverna!
The atmosphere, delicious food and great service provided by our server Yunos made our dinner experience very nice. We highly recommend Ottoman Tavern. Thank you!
Appetizers were especially exceptional, service was great.
Great place, food was delicious and the staff was really helpful by raking the time to explain the items on the menu and giving suggestions. I definitely recommend it
Food is amazing, but the wait time was a bit too much
Amazing, as always.
Service was impeccable, they were great with recommendations and very quick with everything. Food was great too, very flavourful and perfect portion sizes as well. Great experience!
Perfect as always, one of my favorite restaurants in DC.
Dinner was amazing. Service outstanding. Elis was super nice and made our wedding anniversary even more special. Love it. ❤
Came here for our anniversary and it was so good, we came right back for my birthday. Really incredible restaurant from the food and ambiance to the WONDERFUL service (thank you younos and colleagues), management (mr alp), and chef ahmed. The lamb chops and shrimp are exquisite, I highly recommend the Shepard Salad, and for dessert, get the khatmer - a bit like a crepe, a rare find and amazing. The Trip to turkey also provides plenty of yumminess at great value. Last, they gave me a fun bday surprise.
Super delicious food. Ask for the "Taste of Turkey" price fixe menu which was a super good deal. The service was excellent and the waitstaff very friendly.
$24 lunch is a great deal for a delicious food in a very nice setting. Interesting wine list. Bulgarian Sauvignon Blanc was great and they got Turkish, greak and other wine selection.
Alp took care of us. Loved it. Amazing dining experience. I felt that he really wanted me to have a great birthday because he took such great care of my table. From great menu recommendations to taking care of cutting and boxing my cake that my fiance brought. We ordered a lot of items and everything was truly exceptional. Deep flavor profiles on beautiful classic dishes. Also this was a last minute reservation that I made the morning of. This is my second visit to this restaurant and now i declare it to be OUR restaurant and want to come here for every occasion! I loved it last time and today my experience was even better. 5 stars all around.
Wonderful restaurant! Food and service fantastic! We would highly recommend!
Our visit was outstanding as usual!!! My Adana Kebab was perfectly done and the staff happily switched the bulgar rice for their delicious white rice. DO NOT leave without having the baklava.... best I've had outside of Turkey!!!!
It’s always a good time dining at Ottoman Taverna. This is undoubtedly my favorite Turkish restaurant. Food is consistently delicious, great service, beautiful ambiance and good price point. Very friendly and courteous staff and the manger Alp is very hospitable. They literally take you on a trip to Turkey. I highly recommend
Amazing bottomless brunch!
Ottomans always provide excellent service and food. The stuff is super friendly and it’s always a great dining experience.
Great food and nice atmosphere.
