Istanblue Mediterranean Cuisine

If you close your eyes while dining at Istanblue Mediterranean Cuisine, you might forget where you are. Aromas of Turkish coffee, roasted gyros, and grilled calamari waft through the air, transporting you from Saratoga Springs to the shores of Turkey, which both the head chef and owner once called home.

Much of the menu is straightforward, like the lamb kebabs that cook on an open grill. Certain dishes, however, reflect Chef Emrah Atici's creative flair. He dresses up grilled octopus with pomegranate sauce and slices lamb and beef paper-thin for iskender. The latter made a deep impression on one Times Union journalist, who described it as "a gyro wrap deliciously deconstructed and piled high with extra meat and melted butter." For dessert, try pistachio baklava or kazan dibi, a caramelized custard dessert that resembles crème brûlée.

Customer Reviews

Istanblue is one of the finer Mediterranean restaurants in this region and their service is wonderful!

We really enjoyed getting 5 appetizer plates for our table of 4, trying a unique mix of flavors and textures. We then shared two entrees and were very happy. Great service by Stella!
