Turks & Frogs Restaurant Review

: This West Village wine bar---the sister to TriBeCa’s Turks & Frogs---serves up more beverages than edibles. That’s not to say that the food, including lots of Turkish treats, isn’t worth a nibble. It is. Food offerings include hummus with toasted pita strips, a smoky eggplant salad, cheese plates, and mixed Turkish olives. If you’re still hungry, try the various “tosts,” or sandwiches, including the salami or ambiguous sounding "Atom" tost. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming: the first room boasts a vintage-chic bar area while the back offers couches, bookshelves filled with leather-bound classics, and black and white maps of Istanbul that will make you want to start planning your next trip. Both are decorated with antique mirrors and lots of candles, and are perfect for long conversations with friends or romantic tête-à-têtes. The lengthy wine list is helpfully broken down into categories like “medium to full bodied, fruity and oak-free,” and “full bodied, rich flavored, bone dry.”

worst service ever experienced

Despite my reservation for a party, I arrived at Turks & Frogs to find it closed. I organized a birthday party for my sister, and reserved the back area of Turks & Frogs weeks in advance. I had numerous phone and email conversations with the manager. He told me that all I would need to do was confirm the reservation 2 days prior to the event, which I did, via both email and text message. He responded to me saying "thank you for your confirmation, I'll have your table ready for Monday. Cheers". On Monday, I arrived at Turks & Frogs about 30 minutes prior to the party, only to find the restaurant being locked up. I called the manager and was told "Oh, yeah sorry, I meant to call you...but we don't have a bartender so we had to close." That was it. There was nothing he was willing to do to assist with this, despite the fact that I had a group of 12+ people on their way for the party. He unhelpfully offered us some free drinks on another day....as if I would ever go back. He really seemed to care less about my predicament and the business (we would have been a very large tab) we would have provided. Luckily, we were able to move the party to nearby wine bar Aria, who were able to accommodate our group.
