Istanbul Sofra closed in early 2019. It is unclear if it will re-open with new ownership at this time.
With traditional Turkish food and decor, Istanbul Sofra is one of those restaurants that instantly transports you to another time and place. The brightly colored woven tablecloths, mosaic lamps, and delicious mezze and lamb dishes took us back to our time in Turkey and made for a fun night out.
We recently dined here on a busy Saturday evening and were seated in a smaller back room. As the restaurant is BYOB we stuck to water and apple tea which was very sweet and reminded us of our rug shopping experiences in Turkey.
