My husband and I went for dinner on a weekend. The restaurant is small and tables are close together. Food was okay; overpriced for the quality. Probably will not return.\r

Seriously, my favorite place! Tuesday is the bargain night... Great atmosphere... great food... BEST sangria ever! I strongly recommend. Get there immediately if not sooner. Check hours first because it doesnt open until 5p or something.

This is the best hummus in town! Make sure and go on Tuesday night for $2 tapas night. In addition to the hummus, try the lamb rolls and the russian chicken salad. I believe they have specials on wine and sangria as well.

The outdoor seating is my favorite, if the weather is right. The food at Cafe Izmir is delicious, and reasonably priced. Tapas are so fun because you can order many different things to taste. They have excellent hummus - worth fighting over!

I finally got the chance to eat at Cafe Izmir for the first time Friday. I've been a frequesnt visitor to the Izmir Deli and Kizmet for a few years, and I'm glad I made the trip next door. The place is small and cozy, and pretty crowded on the weekends, so avoid it if you liek to spread out and can't handle somewhat tight quarters. They had a live acoustic guitarist playing by the patio area, and paintings by local artists on the walls.

I was with 2 other people, neither of which had ever had Mediterranean or Persian food, so I got to order for everyone. We started with plates of hummus, ziziki, yogurt, olives, and russian chicken salad served with pita. Their chicken salad is to DIE for... creamy and tasty and goes perfectly well with the soft pita. We had the prix fixe dinner... we were brought a huge pltter with kabob, grilled chicken, lamb chops, and these fantastic pieces of grilled chicken and veggies rolled up in pita. All the meats were perfectly cooked, and had a nice charred flavor to them. This was all served with a really flavorful rice pilaf dish... perfectly cooked with a little saffron.

My friend and I both had hot tea, served Russian style in theses beautiful glass goblets with our SINFULLY decadent chocolate cake, and i had the turkish coffee.

They have a very nice wine list but we were feeling cheap and opted to have the sangria. It was somewhat weak, btu I haven't found a place other than my own kitchen that serves a stout sangria. They don't serve liquor, but the club next door sure does, along with a mean hookah!

Pros: Ambiance, family ran, authentic Persian food

Cons: very small, can get a LONG wait, reservations are needed

Honestly, the food was pretty good (but cold when it came), but the terrible service and atmosphere ruined the experience. We came without a reservation, but were told it would only be a 15 minute wait. I was patient and only checked in after 25 minutes. I was told that they were very busy. Well, why didn't they relay that to me when they said 15 minutes initially, I asked calmly? (At no time was I rude, but I did look annoyed.) The host was patronizing and offered me a glass of wine to "relax." He was clearly laughing at me and indiginant at the idea that I would even venture to hold them loosely to their estimate. In fact, we weren't seated until 50 minutes after we arrived--not 15 (and we were only a party of 2). There were visibly open tables the whole time, by the way. After we got seated (next to a huge party that was so close to our table that when they scooted out of their chairs, they knocked our table and food dishes numerous times with their rears) it was a full 15 minutes before ANYONE came to take our drink orders or bring us a menu. After finally ordering and receiving our starters, the main course took at least 25 minutes to get there. We asked for more pita bread at this time, and didn't see the waiter again until we were done with the meal. Finally, they brought more bread (too late to enjoy) and it had a large black hair on top of it! I couldn't even talk with my dinner companion because the music was so loud...like eating in a nightclub. The ambiance was terrible. I won't be returning.

Did not make a reservation, which was a mistake.
Arrived at 7:45 and was told a 35-40 minutes wait.
At 9:00 checked again and was told a table would be free in 15 minutes.
Checked again at 9:20 - there was no table. And again at 9:30. Walked into teh restaurant and indeed there was none.
Asked the front-desk clerk and was told that we had turned down a table (we hadn't) and that he would not seat us because we were now complaining.
When asked if he ever intended to seat us, or if he was just wasting our time it was clear that he had never intended to seat us and was clearly wasting out time.

Tuesday night is the $2.00 tapa night and the wine is cheap too! The patio is darling. My husband LOVES this place. Its in his top 10. I am not that into mediterranean food, but this is my favorite of that category!

I recently took a couple of friends here for dinner and they loved it. They said the ingridents were exact. Considering this is their native food I would have to say it's Authenic.

Enjoy great Tapas!

Pros: Ambience, Value, Friendly

Cons: Traffic, Reservations

Cafe Izmir is located off of Greenvile and Mockingbird in the middle of Dallas. Every tuesday night the menu is filled with two dollar tapas and thirteen dollar bottles of wine. The food and atmoshpere is amazing, just make sure you have reservations, b/c things get so busy on Tuesdays that the cusomters end up spilling into the parking lot to get a taste of the amazing food!

It began as a tiny venue with about ten tables but demand spawned an additional intimate patio, and there's even overflow into the Greenville Avenue parking lot. The mostly tapas-style offerings are solidly rooted in the Middle East, not…
