I dined here with out of town family friends during Restaurant Week. Our server, Heather, was great, and the food was even better. The plating for these small portions is beautiful, and the locally sourced food is amazing. We shall return regularly

Ayes has always been one of our favorites in Frederick and we’ve been there many times. However the service Friday was dreadful. So many elementary mistakes. We stood at the bar and waited and waited and waited. The server was obviously busy but never looked...More

The food, wine and service were all very good. I’d like to rate Ayse as 4.5. It’s great to have a Turkish-inspired restaurant in Frederick. Try the Turkish wines, which are excellent.More

We have been to Ayse Meze several times on dates, with friends, and always leave happy. However, for anyone who hasn't been here, be aware that it will get pricey fast if you order several tapas dishes on a non-promotional weekend. Restaurant week deals here...More

First off, don't miss this place! The Turkish/Greek/Middle Eastern food is wonderfully prepared with some unique recipes, and beautifully presented--try anything, you can't go wrong! They claim to offer tapas-style small plates for sharing, but in reality they're practically full plates that you can share...More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Tapas sized serving that you can share or eat yourself. Definitely enough food to eat. I would recommend the cigar trio as an appetizer, a variety of flavors in pastry. I had a lamb dish and a mushroom...More

This is my husband and I's favorite restaurant for a nice romantic evening. Their food and drinking is wonderful, the service is good and the atmosphere is romantic if occasionally a little noisy. Their Saganaki is to die for!

They have parking behind the restaurant tha can be reached down an easily missed alley right by the restaurant or by driving around the block. The food appeared to have a heavy Turkish influence but there were a number of traditional Greek dishes too. I...More

I'm sorry, but I do not have a menu other than what is on the website. I do know that wine can be ordered at lunchtime.

I called the restaurant, and they said no smoking in any indoor or outdoor dining areas. They did say there is a space next to the patio where people can smoke.
