It’s a solid restaurant. Food is always good. However tonight they were not on their game. We had a 6:45 reservation and did not sit down until 730. There was a screwup in the kitchen, and Our main courses did not arrive until around 9:15 PM. They apologized and kept offering us free wine, however they should have adjusted the check instead but did not. We will go back, but tonight was not a good experience.

I made 6pm reservation to get the free glasses of house wine which were fabulous. Our host was also our server. He was gracious, helpful and so cute too. The foodxwas as always, amazing. I brought a friend and this was her 1st time at Bosphorus ... she cooks and knows Mediterranean food very well. She ,was overjoyed at the authenticity of the flavors and graciousness of our server/host. I had the branzino filet Omgosh a huge portion enough for lunch the next day. fair prices. Great easy atmosphere

This is a very hard-working staff. They were 5 server short and slammed with dinner guests. But with Grace and hospitality manage to serve delicious food in a timely fashion. Thank you

Good thing we had a reservation. Very crowded, tends to feel cramped. Don't go for an intimate dinner for two. But for a standard Turkish/Mid-Eastern style grill restaurant, the food is excellent, and so is the service. Fun place.

Bosporus is a nice neighborhood restaurant. They serve god food, but a little pricy!! It is a small place with moderate ambiance. The servers are attentive
However we eat there often when we get a yen for Turkish food and will be back

3rd time diner. Can not complain about the food. Fresh, hot, presented in a lovely way. Very attentive staff. The steaming hot lavash bread can't be matched. If you're looking for ambience, well not much here but you are guaranteed a wonderful meal.

Fabulous. One server was bringing our bread and a second server saw that the bread she was delivering to us was not right, he took it from her and replaced it with a big, fresh, toasted bread. We really appreciatethat attention to detail. Excellent, tender chicken kabob. All details were spot on. This was my 2nd visit. Very reasonably priced. We'll be back. Reservations are recommended.

The nicest staff. We came earlier then our reservation and were happily seated. This small restaurant has a big menu with great selections. Towards the end of our meal a waitress dropped something that splattered all over the floor and me, the staff was so attentive the offered us desert to take home and to take my new jacket to the cleaners. They were very concerned. Great food. Great wine. Definitely need a reservation. Don't miss it.

I love this restaurant. The food is terrific! Had the appetizer sampler plate and the special bread and we all loved everything we ate. Even the regular bread is wonderful Branzino is great, as was the kebab. Too full for any dessert. It gets VERY crowded and quite noisy although it's much quieter outside if the weather permits. Be sure to make a reservation and enjoy!!!!!

A hidden gem. My friend told me about it and not sure I would have found it without her precise directions. So glad I did. Warm, friendly, attentive service. Yummy bread. Delicious food. The grilled branzino filet was perfectly prepared. Next time, I must try the appetizers as they look/sound great. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside---basically adjoining the driveway. Don't let that dissuade you. Go and enjoy!

Food is very good and servers are attentive. The restaurant is small but not noisy. Nice menu selections. Good salads and delicious puffy bread. Not inexpensive especially with drinks and dessert but highly recommended.
