Definitely not worth the money. Don't get me wrong the food is not bad. But kebab anywhere else taste the same. I am not really sure why they charge twice as much if you do not get anything in return. My partner had kebab with rice. The rice was just thrown onto the plate like if some lunch lady was arrange it, no salad nothing extra that would justify the prices. I had Adana with tomato-yoghurt sauce, as well no presentation, just half of tomato and half of jalapeno, that's it.
Tables are tiny, you can barely fit dinner plates. Light way too strong in the restaurant, feels like school lunch.
I guess you pay for the table cloth. That is the only thing I could find different from any grill kabob.
Disappointing.

My son and I had lunch at Istanbul Blue on February 11. We were the only customers for an early lunch, so we were a bit concerned about the food. But, there was no need to worry. We started with an appetizer tray with a mix of different samples. It was excellent! In fact, I will order that for my meal next time. Then we both ordered a Doner entree that was very good. It was so plentiful that we brought half home. Don't hesitate to try this restaurant.

The food was excellent. And there was enough for a second meal for everyone at the table. None of us were impressed with the service. The server left us upstairs by ourselves and seldom checked on us. Go for the food; not the service.

We made a reservation on a Sunday evening during COVID-19. We were hesitant to eat inside, but we were the only people there. Plenty of carryout customers and one outside. Everyone was wearing masks and kept a good distance.

The food was fantastic! We loved it and hope to be back soon.

Made reservations for Valentines Day dinner. We were seated right around our reservation time. The waiting area is very small and quaint. My husband and I were seated upstairs. We sat for almost 20 minutes before my husband flagged down a server. That set the tone for the rest of the night....food was average/good but too bad the service wasn’t

Girlfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day and we were excited to go! We made a reservation and were seated immediately but we waited about 30 minutes before somebody came to take our order so we were a bit frustrated. Both my gf and I were excited to try the Pide option on the menu but we were told that the chef refused to make it on that evening. Mind you, this is after waiting for 30 minutes and nobody gave us any prior warning. The waitress gave us 10 more minutes to select another option. The food we both got was mediocre. It’s a shame because the wait staff obviously tried really hard and they were understaffed. Overall though I will not be going back.

This is a small tucked away restaurant with very friendly staff and tasty food. I really enjoyed the hummus and Branzino. The traditional music was a very nice touch. I think If they could dim the lights it would have a more romantic atmosphere for date night. Looking forward to dining there again soon.

Very disappointed in the waiter and service. Party of 5 on a Tuesday night, it was not crowded. we ordered two appetizers and the waiter forgot to bring them out, yet they were on the bill and we asked him to remove them. Then we waited over 25 for the waiter to bring us back our paid bill, the hostess kept telling us they were having technical issues reloading the paper into the machine. Unacceptable to wait for a paid bill receipt to be signed

The food has definitely gone down in quality. My wife and I both had the shish kebab, which was acceptable, but not very interesting. The service was poor - we had to ask another waiter on three separate occasions to get the attention of our waiter.

I enjoyed the complimentary, hardy lentil soup with the meal. And the shisk kabob I ordered was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. My one ding on the meal was a hot pepper (jalapeno maybe) served with the seeds still inside, which made it pretty much uneatable without a fire hose. Overall, a pleasant dining experience at a small, authentic Turkish restaurant.

Don't know why we haven't been back more often since the food is very good and the service equally as good. I had the Lamb Kabab and the wife had the Donner Kabab - and both were very tasty and fixed just right. We also each received a complementary cup of Red Lentil soup - which was also tasty.

Once again Istanbul Blue came through with a great meal, good service, at a reasonable price. We had the soup, shared the platter, iskender, kunefe and baklava. We also spent some wonderful time with Chef Ismet talking about family. We strongly recommend Istanbul Blue to others.

A perfect blend of spices and freshly prepared meats and breads. I went to try something new and different and now I have a favorite new Mediterranean restaurant. I had not indulged Turkish cuisine before but have dined in Mediterranean for decades. Servers were friendly, food was freshly prepared, service was quick and a very friendly/positive energy.

Disappointing lunch experience. The table was split on the sandwiches. The Doner got a thumbs up but the Adana got a thumbs down. The table was also split on the Hummus. One person liked it but others felt there was too much of a hint of cumin. The baklava on the other hand was absolutely delicious with syrup dripping onto our hands. Service was very slow even though there were only 2 tables occupied for lunch.
