The food was good. Started with the Brussel Sprouts and they were delicious. Tried the Turkish Pasty Cigars, Chicken, and they were good, too. Finished with the Lamb Kebab and unfortunately the meat was chewy and not as good as I hoped. The server was...More

The staff at Ayse Meze far exceeded our expectations for the rehearsal dinner for our son's dinner. They took very good care of us and put on a great event. The food all received rave reviews from our guests.

Since I love Mediterranean, this place was an easy sell for me. They have lots of options on their menu. We usually have trouble deciding what to order as we want to try so many things. They are known for their Brussels sprouts which I...More

While the restaurant is in good location and very clean with great environment, the food is OK at best. The taste is not authentic mediteranian, not authentic Greek nor authentic Turkish. It’s basically Americanized version of the foods. Furthermore, while it is “Mezze” or small...More

Today we visited Ayse Meze for the third time. In the past we've done small dishes, but they add up really quickly. So we did one small dish to share, sandwiches, and dessert. First of all, the tables are too close to each other and...More

Took my wife here last Friday. Our first time there, and it was excellent. We ordered 4 tapas dishes, and all were good, but the Brussel sprouts were incredible! The falafal (sp?), hot sausage, and babaganoush (sp?) were also very good. Highly recommend this place!

Had a wonderful meal. One member of our party is celiac, and they were very GF conscious with lots of options (& GF pita!). Had the brussels sprouts (amazing), pork belly, and a chocolate mousse. So good!!

I'm sorry, but I do not have a menu other than what is on the website. I do know that wine can be ordered at lunchtime.

I called the restaurant, and they said no smoking in any indoor or outdoor dining areas. They did say there is a space next to the patio where people can smoke.
