I was looking for somewhere to have a brunch for 10 family members before a afternoon wedding. I am from out of town, so went to Open Table to look. I found Lezzet, and they were perfect! From the call I made to ask about indoor or outdoor dining possibilities (they have both), to the call I received the morning of the brunch to ask my preference for dining, and to let me know they had a separate room for us, to the food!! The menu is amazing - I wished I lived in Virginia and could try everything on it! But the service really stands out. It was perfect. Attentive, timely, friendly, but let us visit and eat and catch up with family. The service was a 10! And the food was a 10! Try them, I wish I could again!

We first ordered from Lezzet via GrubHub, and it was so good, we had to go to the restaurant in person. Obviously, it's even more delicious when it's brought to your table piping hot (or nicely chilled). It's so hard to find a really good baba ghanoush, but Lezzet's is to die for. I could make a meal out just the baba ghanoush alone.

This is the first place I've found locally that also serves Turkish coffee, so I'm that much more thrilled about finding Lezzet. If you are looking for delicious, authentic Turkish food, go to Lezzet!

The positive reviews inspired me to pick this restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday…and we were not disappointed! Service was excellent and the staff informative since this was our first visit. The shared appetizer platter was delightful but as a light eater…half of it could have been
my entire dinner! The shrimp tava had a great lemony flavor and my husband’s manti was delicious! A nice bottle of Turkish red wine and a sweet ending with rice pudding and baklava made it a perfect Monday night celebration in the suburbs! While the restaurant is lovely, the quality of food far exceeds its location and could easily compete with more expensive “trendy” spots!

We always enjoy the fresh salads and Mediterranean food at Lezzet. It is just delicious, and we have enjoyed eating outdoors during the still summery weather. We enjoy not being rushed and enjoying each course at leisure.

I enjoy Lezzet more each time I eat here. The outdoor tables are a quiet retreat and I’m in the process of working through their delicious meals, exploring the many treats Lezzet offers.

M guest enjoyed his Greek Salad full of fresh Mediterranean vegetables and I had the Köfte with Bulgar Pilaf - it was amazing.

I look forward to my next visit!

OMG! The best grilled lamb chops ever in my life and I don’t expect to get better. Get the mix grill platter. Everything moist, flavorful and has that taste of fire cooked love. They have ample outdoor seating and parking. Huge food options for vegetarians too!
They also serve the Turkish dessert Kuhnefe (spelling?) that is hard to find at other restaurants. Try this restaurant. You won’t regret and will keep coming back. (We drive an hour to eat here bec it’s worth it)

“Lezzet” means “taste” and our experience was wonderful. This appears to be a family-owned restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was prepared accurately and quickly. We enjoyed it and will come back again for their flatbreads, their baba ganoush, hummus, and yogurt dishes!

The daily made red lentil soup: you can taste the freshness and care. Great seasoning and lightness.
The baklava: I literally had tears and was in shock how out of the world this tasted. Usually I don’t like baklava but the chef insisted on a complimentary one since it’s our first visit and boy was I blown away. It was crispy, light, perfect sweetness. It has made it to my “best evers” list which means I don’t intend to find better elsewhere….I’m marrying this one.
We also had their mousukkka eggplant entre and the beyti yogurt. Great texture and you’ll leave there with a full satisfied smile on your face.

Most authentic Turkish food I have had outside of Turkey. This is a family owned and run place. Very nice environment and pleasant open view with seating inside and out. The food itself was great tasting and incredibly fresh.

Quiet Turkish restaurant with a great menu very reasonably priced. Service was excellent, fast and professional. We shared a meze -the “cigars” were delicious as was the Baba ganoush, hummus and dolmas. Kofte and falafel wraps were perfect and for dessert, the pistachio cake was super yummy! We’ll be back.

This was my first time. The wait staff was warm and solicitous and really couldn’t do enough for us. The baba ganouj was delicious with the homemade bread. Next, being vegetarian, I had the falafel salad. A Turkish wine was delish as well. All in all a beautiful evening.

I have always received great service and delicious food at Lezzet and this was no exception.

My friends and I shared the Mixed Grill for Four because all are on protein heavy diets. We were very happy with the variety of items and quality of the meal and the inclusion of green veggies including broccoli, peppers and hot peppers was an unexpected treat.

This is a hidden gem worthy of your time!

Dining at Lezzet was a delightful experience from the baba ganoush appetizer with warm flatbread and olive spread, to the friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive wait staff, to the generously-portioned main courses and Turkish wine. My friend and I had spinach pie & moussaka and both were delicious with crisp side salads. If I lived closer, I'd go once a week to sample the different menu items. I'd also take home half my main course and save room for dessert!
