We went in for dinner before a show. 3 of us shared 5 plates. They also have a pretty comprehensive drink menu. Pretty good mezze. The place has a vibrant feel and it lively but not so much that you can't have a conversation. They draw a pretty good crowd so reservations are probably a good idea. Pricing is reasonable... More

There are so many choices to choose from that will satisfy anyone. Meat eaters, vegan, vegetarian . Many creative as well as tasty. I love the hot puffed bread they give you and you can keep getting more as you will want it!. Multiple levels to dine as well as outside al fresco. Food tends to be leaning towards Middle... More

This restaurant is one of my favorites. The food is simply phenomenal. I haven't had anything I didn't like at this restaurant. Love the fried eggplant and the kibbeh among other dishes. Great ambiance as well and it's great spot for a date night or meal out with friends.

If you think you don't like eggplant, order the crispy fried version here. The BEST. Everything we tried was delicious, and we tried a lot. Perfectly seasoned and prepared, we enjoyed it all. Great space, friendly service.

Enjoyable meal at Zaytinya. We shared appetizers and ordered 6 small plate entrees to share. Everything was delicous. Very popular restaurant so reservations are recommended. We were lucky to get a nice table for two by the window.

I visited this restaurant many years ago when it first opened. The food is very good. Our party of four ordered 2 small plates each which was plenty for us to share. Good selection of wines. Recommend the mushroom couscous,zucchini and cheese patties, biftek (grilled sirloin) roasted brussel sprouts. Delicious flavors, everything well cooked and seasoned. Everything we ordered was...

This was my second visit to Zaytinya. A reservation is a must as this restaurant really rocks on a Saturday evening. The food here is just simply amazing. The variety of small plates makes it hard to select- they all sounded delicious. Our selections were excellent. There were some service issues during our dinner. However, the server made the manager... More

We enjoyed a private party for a Baptism on the 11th of March 2017. Not only are they always organized, set up and staff ready to go but the food and the atmosphere is top notch... The staff is always outstanding and so very knowledgeable about the food they are serving. This is not our first visit and will not... More

We looked for restaurants near our hotel while on vacation and Zaytinya got great reviews so we decided to try it. It was delicious! We had the 4 course brunch and every course was wonderful. Great service and tons of delicious pita pillow bread!! So good! We will definitely be back!
