LEZZET MEDITERRANEAN TURKISH RESTAURANT
Always delicious. A great neighborhood addition and so happy it's surviving pandemic so far.
We had an excellent dining experience at Lezzet last night! They offered outside dining and inside the restaurant dining so we ate indoors. Since they didn’t have their liquor license yet, we brought a bottle of wine with us and they gladly served it to us with no corkage fee. We shared a nice Greek salad with the best pita bread we’ve ever eaten. The lamb shank and eggplant was absolutely tender and delicious. A man at the next table recommended the almond pudding, so we ordered one, and it was very good...soothing at the end of the meal! Thanks for an enjoyable dinner!
This is one of the best Turkish restaurants in the city. Sadly, with COVID19, we were outdoors and it was 49 degrees but while we were there plastic siding was installed which reduced the wind factor dramatically.
Food is always very good, friendly service and prices are reasonable.
Love it. Been many times and never disappoints. Highly recommended.
The outdoor setup is great and the food is awesome!
Delicious food. Bit if traffic noise but that’s to be expected now. Recommend to folks who like well prepared Turkish food with attentive service.
Amazing food and service as always. Been here a few times and they never disappoint.
Outdoor dining during the pandemic, with its felicitous and occasional annoyances. But this is a great addition to the neighborhood. Long may it wave. The menu is not unusual, but everything - mezzes and mains - was perfectly cooked and fresh-tasting.
During these trying times in NYC and the world, Lezzet has been a ray of sunshine and hope. Wonderfully gracious and friendly service--and terrific food. The falafel, Doner Kebabs and Shepherd salad are favorites. Generous portions, fresh ingredients and a lively and lovely outdoor setting make this a favorite.
Delicious food, great section of dishes and great service. This is a family owned Turkish restaurant on a quiet street with outdoor tables. The only caveat is that they do not have a liquor license so if you want that being your own bottle because the food here is really worth it from start to finish. Will return and highly recommend
Great set up outside! Tables far apart and the street isn’t too busy. Food was delicious. We’ll be back!
As a Turk, this food is truly authentic and delicious! Sitting outside in the gorgeous summer air felt so wonderful! They don’t have their liquor license yet so it’s BYOB and there’s a liquor store around the corner! The service is reliable and the value is actually very good compared to other Turkish restaurants in the area...AND the food is far better than those places!! Play this place a visit - you won’t be upset!
Great food, great service, great restaurant. It was the best Turkish food that we ate in US. The service was excellent.
Superb. For us, now the best Turkish (and arguably the best Middle Eastern) restaurant in NYC. Familiar offerings done even better plus some welcome
new variations. Highly recommended.
great relatively new restaurant. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced . excellent mezza platter - still BYOB while they wait for their liquor license. Go now and keep them in business.
We had an excellent dinner at LEZZET MEDITERRANEAN TURKISH Restaurant this evening. The food was delicious - all fresh ingredients and each item is made fresh. Try the chicken soup, babaganoush and falafel appetizers. All terrific. We had the dinner special which had great choices. The service was as good as the food. Your water glass will never be empty! The restaurant is also very nicely decorated and not overcrowded. To top it all off it is currently BYOB! A rare thing in Manhattan. Overall an outstanding dining experience. We will be back.
Convenient location, courteous staff, good quality food (main course could use a couple of more vegetarian options)... it’s BYOB, so! Already one of the best spots in the city.
Although the staff was friendly, it was not well trained. The restaurant had very few customers but rarely did anyone come over to us. We had to ask for the dessert that was included with our meal.
The food was fair and, certainly, not memorable.
This was a great place! We tried it at random and were pleasantly surprised!
I would recommend. They do not yet have their liquor license.
Their heat was not properly working the day I was there so it was cold
Great value. Great food
Can’t beat the price fixed dinner. Enough for 2! Food very good.
nice addition to the neighborhood. The space is cramped but the food and service were quite goo. No liquor license yet so BYOB.
Consistently delicious Mediterranean food. I have been to this local gem 5 times in the past month. The food and service are well worth the visit. Staff is friendly and always spot on with recommendations. This is my new go to restaurant for Mediterranean food. When I can’t decide on a dish the mixed grill covers all bases. This place has plenty of choices for vegetarians too.
New. Had several service hiccups. Food tasty & reasonably priced. Will try again
Delicious food , friendly staff !! A great new gem for the upper east side
Excellent fresh salad and fish, good value for the money.

Pleasant. Greeted upon arrival and seated promptly. Place was empty at 4 PM but more customers came in by the time we left at 6PM
Varied menu reasonably priced. I had lamb shank nicely plated with rice and something orange but the HOT chili took me by surprise. Still recovering .
The shank wrapped in eggplant was very good.
My friend ordered the lamb kabob came with sides of rice and red cabbage that she liked.
Everything was just good. We enjoyed what we ordered. Babaganoush and rice pudding were better than good. We wanted to take gallons of them home. Lol
An excellent addition to the neighborhood. Keep up the good work.
Dry e notable dinner with friends.
The food was very delicious and the staff attentive.
BYOB help keep the costs down
