A neighborhood restaurant with a good chef and very attentive and gracious servers. We especially enjoyed the branzini fish - perfectly prepared and delicious with Turkish rice and cold vegetables. The menu is quite limited for vegetarians and they only serve Turkish wines but we had a nice dinner at a good price.

It was my first time to Istanbul Blue restaurant. I had a warm welcome by the restaurant staff, who were super courteous throughout the time we were in. The food was super delicious. I am a vegetarian & they have tons of options. Prices were moderate. The ambience was warm, cozy, & clean. Though the restaurant wasn't very huge inside, they had sufficient breathing space between the tables. In this pandemic, it is important that we don't bump into each other. The restroom was also super clean.
All in all, I am highly recommending it to my friends & family & will be back again to explore other veg options :)

Absolutely fantastic. The food was wonderful and service was probably the best I have had in the DMV. It is lovely and quiet. I even tried some Turkish wine which was light and refreshing for lunch. 100% recommend this establishment.

Our meal at Istanbul Blue was a very enjoyable time. Service was personable and efficient in spite of our being there at a busy time. The food was delicious, the lamb was tender and expertly cooked as was the beef moussaka. The desserts of rice pudding and baklava were a treat at meals end. This seemingly small restaurant was able to handle 2 large groups at the same time by the use of second floor seating. Would definitely share with friends.

We were visiting northern Va and having dinner with our former neighbors and good friends. We chose this restaurant because it was a favorite of our friends.
The experience was a disappointment from start to finish.
When we arrived on time, the snippy waitress said we could not eat downstairs as we almost always had but would have to go upstairs. When we asked for the open table by the window, she countered that that table was “reserved.” As it turned out, two people, a half hour apart, arrived to take it. Hence we were at a middle table, and before we were served, a large group - two families with five small (under seven) children - were placed right behind us. This put us in the middle of two other occupied tables with only window tables occupied in the middle and left side of the room.
Whereupon, two of the little boys behind us began shouting and jumping around for at least a half hour until they had something to eat. Their parents seemed to do nothing to control them.
We decided to grin and bear it because we had come for good Turkish food. Unfortunately, our waitress seemed to disappear. Much later, she brought our meals which were lukewarm to cold.
Neither the upstairs room nor the downstairs one seemed that busy. Understaffed? Doubtful. At one time or another we saw three waiters on our floor.
If our experience is typical, this restaurant is not what it used to be.

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.
