This established was excellent. From the decor, to the service, to the food. Start to finish. The Turkish beer was great. We had the lunch special and it was great. Price point was excellent. Can't wait to go back.

Delicious! We had the Sultan's platter for 2. It was a sample of many things on the menu. We took some home because there was so much. The waitress was sweet.

My wife and I spent the evening at this "magnificent" restaurant.

The staff were extraordinary from the moment we made our reservation change, walked in and until the moment we departed. TRULY EXTRAORDINARY.

The food was astounding. I've spent much time in Turkey and found this restaurant to be as authentic as being in Istanbul, Izmir or Ankara or any other place in Turkey. Remarkable. And to top it off, on they had an authentic belly dancer entertain the entire restaurant and again made me feel like I was back in Turkey many years ago.

I had the lamb chops that were the most tender the most flavorful the most tasteful lamb chops I'd ever had anywhere in any restaurant in the United States. Hats off to the entire staff Chef for a wonderful evening and we thank you all

This was our first time to Cazbar. We really wanted to like it but it just fell flat. Our server was very nice, appetizers were ok except for the stuffed grape leaves which seemed like they could have been canned, the main meal was unimpressive. We did expect a lot better for almost $100 for just the 2 of us.

Wonderful experience. Dining room is cozy, romantically lit and well decorated. Wait staff is pleasant and helpful. We had lamb, pumpkin soup and spinach filled pasta. It was all excellent. While we were there, we were entertained by a talented belly dancer. Fun evening. Highly recommended

Oh, such deliciousness! The lamb moussaka was oh so yummy! My date's entree was equally good, although I don't remember what he had. The house made ginger tea was the perfect ending to the meal. They were understaffed for Valentine's weekend, but certainly wasn't the fault of the server nor the kitchen. Despite the delays with our food, we still got to our show by the 8pm curtain. We will be back...it's our new favorite!

We first went to the Hippodrome to see a show and were looking for a place to eat after the show was over. We did a Google search and happened to come across Cazbar. The website looked really nice and the food looked amazing in the pictures. We had never really been to a Turkish Restaurant before and we like trying new things. From the moment we walked into Cazbar the hostess and waitress were amazing. They are very attentive and seemed to really care you were there. The food was just how it looked online....amazing. I got the fried Calamari for an appetizer and the Lamb 3 Ways for the entree. The lamb was so delicious and juicy. My wife and I will be coming again for sure....next time after 9:00pm on a Friday or Saturday to check out the belly dancers LOL. Highly recommend this place for future diners.

Cazbar never disappoints. Our group regularly dines here before performances at Center Stage. A table filled with mezze and reasonably priced champagne always kicks the evening off in a festive way. The group contains vegetarians and carnivores, and Cazbar's menu has plenty of options for everyone. Highly recommend.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Baltimore. I’ve never had a bad experience here. The food is always memorable, the drinks are refreshing and the service is reliably great. I prefer making reservations on evenings that belly dancers are performing so the noise level gets a little high with the music but it’s well worth it.

This place is such a gem. We always get excellent attentive service, and the food is fantastic. We had a table of four and shared four plates and some starters, and each one had it's own distinct flavor profile. The mixed grill is a steal, and one of the best med mixed grills I've had. You really need to give this place a shot. Also love the decor.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience the splendor of authentic Turkish cuisine. However, because the prices aren't low, I specifically recommend that you go there for lunch and Ottoman 3-course lunch. That way you get to try several delicious dishes for $15.00. Plus, if you add $2.00 you get tea and a piece of Baklava. That is a pretty good deal.
I do have to say that Baklava is not that great at Cazbar. The philo layers are all pressed into one thich layer and are hard to chew on.
