They moved over to Oak street so they're not here anymore. Good friendly place though. Is nicer at their new location because they can fill it up easier.

We enjoyed Lisa's. It is right in the heart of Ridgewood, which is prime location. The parking can be a pain at times, but we didn't mind walking a couple of streets to get there. We tried the lamb adana and chicken kebab. The lamb was excellent. Very tasty. The chicken was juicy and not dry and also had good... More

We've been irregular regulars since Lisa opened, and have found the food to be a consistently solid option in a bustling local restaurant scene. The space is nicely done, the service friendly, the ingredients fresh (although they could have a little heavier hand with spices). Excellent shepherd's salad, manti and stuffed cabbage are among our regular favorites. Babbaganoush has a... More

Horrible. Owner was screaming at employees in the back. Extremely unprofessional. Food was unbelievable bland. Never again. There's too many other great restaurants in this town to waste your time at this one!

I've been to the Middle East, and while the hummus here is not my favorite, I find the rest of the food delicious. As a frequent restaurant visitor, I know the specials are the best choices at most restaurants. The specials here do not disappoint. Wait staff are friendly and attentive, offering good advice. You won't got wrong if you... More

Went there on a Saturday night in February at 6:45pm and it was fairly empty. Even later it did not fill up. Not sure if it was because of the Olympics, or if business has fallen off. I liked what I ordered but did not love it. Started with a Lisa’s Salad and an appetizer of shrimp and mushrooms. The... More

Turkish restaurants are everywhere lately and some are disappointing in the uneven quality of the cooking. This is not one of those; our party of four sampled a good variety of dishes and all were satisfying and well prepared. Service was cordial and very helpful and the smallish rooms are warmed by lots of fabric and color. Bring your own... More

Food is great and service is awesome :). If you ever want a change from the regular food, try the fish. The salads are great too especially the one with baked aubergines. Must try.

We have eaten at Lisa's many time, dating back to their earlier location in Ridgewood and always find the quality & taste of their food just superb. This last visit was a month ago when we entertained a dozen friends there. The ambiance was good and the service most attentive. The food was excellent. We had platters of assorted cold... More
