sleaziest place on UES...

This place has gone to hell. Used to be good a few years ag0. Now, PURE SLEAZINESS best describes the creepy manager "Sal." I recvd. the wrong meal and I sent it back, UNEATEN, and was charged for it. WHen I questioned the waiter, Sal appeared and said "you don't make no trouble here." Trouble? I hadn't even eaten! It was a very embarrassing SCENE that he created and I honestly felt like I was about to beaten up. I PAID just so I could get away, hopefully unharmed. I have since called to speak with the owner - another SLEAZYcharacter. He allegedly lives in Miami. No surprise that he does not return calls. STAY AWAY.

The most stressful restaurant in NYC.

We have never seen a more strung out restaurant with waitstaff and management running at an unreasonable pace. Its all about turning over the tables (we witnessed a table re-set in <45 seconds). Food is marginal at best, decor is poor and there is nothing to love here. The most enjoyable part of eating at Beyoglu was leaving... stressed out!!

Been to Beyoglu last weekend and I must say it was probably the last time. They were out of most of their main courses and so had forced to you have what was left. The service was just awful, the grilled meat was way overcooked and the food was overall very mediocre. I used to like this place, but I guess it lost its mojoÂ…

Sleazy and unethical managers

Waited for 15 minutes while a sleazy looking person (manager, most likely) had folks who came in later to seat first. Highly unethical to do that. Anyhow once seated the food was terrible. Not worth the wait. Never going back. Certainly do not go if you are treating someone else for a special occasion - the staff was sleazy and the food was mixed. The vegetarian dishes significantly better than the meats.

The evening was an awful experience from the time we put our names on the wait list until we left. The hostess informed us it would be a 20 min wait; however, after 20 mins, we inquired how much longer and she said that there were still 10 couples ahead of us. Needless to say, we ended up waiting 55 mins. I think they just give everyone a canned "20 min" answer to keep people from leaving. The evening didn't get any better after that. We had to suffer through the waiter yelling at us, then never coming back to our table until he gave us the bill. At that point, we couldn't get rid of the guy. He hovered over our table trying to intimidate us into giving him a good tip. We barely got out of our seats when he grabbed the money from the table. I really, really wished I had read the most recent reviews of this place before going. I would have given them a -10 for service had it been an option. The best moment of the night was when we left. It felt so liberating.

Possibly the rudest service in the entire city. Save your money. There are hundreds of restaurants in the city that would welcome your business; this is not one of them. The food is on par with with a glorified diner.

My husband and I were used to go to Beyoglu a lot but lately the service is the RUDEST i ever had in NYC. The manager was very rude and almost coerced us to leave more tip for a sleazy service. Simply awful!
