I have visited Urfa Bistro only once before, in pre-pandemic times, but this time was exceptionally more enjoyable and memorable.
To start, my parents and I split the hot appetizer sampler — with spanakopita, grilled prawns, falafel, greek salad, and more — and the hummus, both of which were delicious (but we didn't get any pita with the hummus, which was a bit odd). I then had the arugula salad with feta and beets, my dad had the vegetarian moussaka (which was delish) and my mom had the grilled prawns entree. To finish, we split the baklava and the gluten-free chocolate cake — the latter of which was SO DELICIOUS, and potentially worth the whole trip.
All of the food was good, but I will say that portions were a little larger than any of us anticipated or needed (we ended up getting 3 boxes to go). I also wish there was a bit more lighting set up outdoors for now, but understand the difficulty of getting that planned out.
Overall, 4.5/5 stars, and would definitely visit again. Thanks so much to the team!
Wonderful food and fabulous service. Outdoor dining was peaceful with warm heaters. Will definitely return!
We had a lovely dinner Sunday night! It was a balmy evening so we sat outside. The food was terrific. We started with the eggplant dip which had a great flavor and texture. My husband had the halibut and I had the salmon. Both were nicely prepared with an array of vegetables and mine had pilaf. Dessert was a chocolate caramel cake with gelato and fruit. All very nicely prepared and served. The dessert was a perfect finish to a lovely meal.
It was great! We had the branzino special.
The menu has a variety that serves many diets. Food is tasty and service was great and showed a lot of flexibility. Great for lamb and kebab skewers. Steak is vet thin not recommended.
Always delicious and thoughtfully prepared Mediterranean food, full of spices and flavor. I've gotten the cold appetizer sampler a couple of times as my main and it's a good excuse to eat up all their warm bread. If going their for lunch, I usually like to stick to their lunch special salad, always creative and delicious seasonal salad.
Waiters, cooks, hostess, owner shouting to each other across the room. Shouting, shouting, shouting. Maybe they thought it added to the Middle Eastern ambiance? It didn't. It was ugly and distracting.
Overall we had a nice dinner…food and service both good. Was a little put off when we arrived and the restaurant was only 1/4 full. Got seated outside at a table for two that was tucked by the door and a hose that was still attached. When I asked the hostess if we could move to any of the vacant tables (so many which stayed empty all night), she said no because they were for 4 people. We stayed at the table and my ankles and feet got many bites because of the bugs swarming around the hose. Disappointing to say the least.
The starters and entrees were truly Turkish, authentic, served in an outdoor bistro setting that was delightful.
Excellent food and friendly service! We will be back !
The food was fresh expertly prepared and delicious! Service was perfectly attentive. The umbrellas made sitting outside in sunny Los Altos perfectly pleasant.
Good food, friendly service, reasonably priced. Recommend
Very welcoming service and ambience and excellent meal topped off by a great desert.
We had an excellent meal with super friendly and efficient service. We were delighted with the selection of daily specials which augmented the already diverse selection. That will open up our desire to dine there more often.
Delightful place to have a delicious outdoor lunch. The service is friendly and competent.
kebab like it should be. Amazing place, outstanding food! You don't need go to kebab origin country to try it. Just come to Urfa Bistro. And they have excellent outdoor terrace
I had the hot plate sampler. Great choice. Previously I had the lamb chops which was superb.

Great food and great service, nice location!! You have got to try it!!
The gazpacho was delicious. Had the beef kebobs with grilled veggies.
A lovely dinner with good service. We ate inside the empty restaurant but all of the side walk tables were occupied.
Urfa has a wonderful, authentic Turkish menu. Especially liked the cold appetizer platter; the spanikopita, the eggplant everything. And the kunefe was super! Grateful to have a nice outdoor spot to eat at.
Great place for lunch! Excellent food and nice ambience - we will be back.
The food was superb and beautifully presented. Service is attentive, professional and friendly. We often eat at Urfa for dinner. This was our first lunch. Highly recommended for lunch and dinner.
Very comfortable outdoor seating, welcoming staff and a good variety of tasty options. Our party of five really enjoyed our meals.
Food is excellent. Loved the chicken kebab, stuffed eggplant, soup, dolmas
Fantastic taste w original recipes
Food was outstanding and "bonus' for birthday celebration also great. Good outdoor and quiet. Service good and selections excellent on menu
Delicious Mediterranean meal sitting outdoors in charming downtown Los Altos. We really enjoyed our Branzino entrees. Highly recommend the eggplant dip for an appetizer.
The octopus is very good! It is a must try at this place. The risotto had a strong saffron flavor in the beginning but seemed a bit bland the third time we ordered it. The kebabs are really good!
We always enjoy our meal at Urfa. Great service, great food and ambiance.
Often one talks about restaurants maintaining their quality or of them having "gone downhill". Urfa Bistro is one of those rare gems that, while starting out as a high quality restaurant even when it first opened, has continued to improve year after year. It is, quite simply, one of the two or three best restaurants in Los Altos.
In recent years there has been a virtual explosion of Turkish restaurants on the mid-Peninsula, with at least 6 or 7 offering quality dishes. Urfa Bistro is the best of these in terms of food, ambiance, and friendly high quality service. A true gem.
Excellent meal in a very comfortable setting.
Great Place! Great food and service, would highly recommend.
Great food and outstanding staff. It is my go to spot with family
Food was outstanding. Enjoyed outdoor dining as was crowded with many doing same. Recommend combination lamb/beef kabob
Great food & service. Nice location, perfect for lunch & dinner.
We had lam and chicken kebab plates and every item on those plates was excellent. I have eaten at this restaurant many times and love everything they serve. The servers are delightful and helpful. It is an easy place to dine at.
The food is great and the service is not bad but we had to wait for more than 45 minutes to get our food. Good thing we were not in a rush to go anywhere. However, our overall experience was great
