Went for lunch and service was good. The place was packed. For my liking the tables are too close together, but we were still able to have a conversation. The highlight for me was the fattoush salad which was very fresh and delicious. The Brussel Sprouts were excellent as well. Excellent bread!

Amazing food, you really felt like being in Greece. The only negative is the portion size, but you can order two different plates and your meal will not be expensive.

We recently had a wonderful dinner. Even though it was a busy Friday night the atmosphere and service was excellent. The waitress, chased after me as I was waking out the door with my phone that I left on the table. the variety and quality of the dishes were superb. The octopus was perfectly prepared.

....and what a surprise... instead of becoming and old and tired restaurant, Zaytinha pared down its menu and added a few new dishes. I was there with friends, mostly Italian, and we all ordered Avgotaraho, the caviar dish served with raw egg yolk and squid ink linguine. ot for the unitiated, but for us Mediterraneans this is the type of plate where food becomes art as it embodies the spirit, literally, of what is eaten. You don't eat the ingredients, you eat the Mediterranean itself served on your plate. Just memorable.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Zaytinya. The pita bread is the best I've ever had. All of our dishes were delicious and the portions were quite large. The service was impeccable. If you like Greek and/or Lebanese food, you won't be sorry you chose this restaurant. Atmosphere is light and modern. Great place.
