The food quality at Zaytinya is geberally good. On this visit, we were a little disappointed that the food was served Luke warm. The olive oil cake was bone dry. Hopefully this is just a temporary service hiccup.
Wonderful service, the food was delicious. We will be back!
We had a number of great dishes and a few ok ones. The atypical "cheesecake" was the best but the sauce on the shrimp was amazing. Decor was pretty beat up - carpeting was ripped in many places, chairs had holes, and a few other things which were odd to see in a JA restaurant. Atmosphere was VERY VERY loud. Would definitely recommend for the food.
The service was a little confusing in regards to “who is my Real sever.”
Z is always fun, great food, fine service. First time there for lunch in a couple of years, so I had forgotten how good everything is. A terrific place.
The outdoor dining area at Zaytinya is very comfortable and well appointed. I saw it listed in an internet search as one of the best outdoor dining venues in DC and agree. The food is always superb.
Great food, fast service, nice outdoor setting. Will go back!
Great family dinner!
Food was fantastic! My only regret is that we didn’t get the tasting menu so that we could have tried even more dishes.
Very pleasant thanx!
Great food! Thank you
Great food. Good subtle flavors. Variety for vegetarians as well.
8 course chef’s tasting menu, wow!
5 stars all around! Food is absolutely delicious every time and service is super friendly. Ambiance is energetic.
We dined outside at Zaytinya and an unexpected summer storm broke shortly after we arrived. The staff were excellent and in good humor the entire time and very kindly provided some champagne on the house to make up for the weather. I was incredibly impressed.
Zaytinya is a hands down favorite. The restaurant and staff truly reflect the community Chef Andres works to cultivate. Outdoor dining is set up to provide for social distancing and distance from the street/traffic. I hosted a business dinner and we all ordered the Chef’s menu, which was amazing and more food than we could eat. Wait staff was prompt, personable, and made sure we had everything we needed. Cannot say enough good things about the restaurant and its people.
The food was great and the service was excellent. Save room for dessert.
We came here to celebrate our engagement with family. I used to love this restaurant but this time it but the food did not seem particularly to be special this time (balloon bread felt dry too). Overall enjoyed the dinner though!
Booked a 8:15 reservation but did not get seated until 8:45 which was frustrating. My boyfriend ordered a beer but out came a cocktail but got charged for the beer. Food came out quickly and was delicious though. Always love it at Zaytinya, just a busy night I guess.
Great food. Great service. So fun! Will be back next time in DC! Will try in NYC now!!
My husband, our son and his girlfriend and I had dinner at Zaytinya the other night. I had been there on a visit to DC a number of years ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it but none of them had been before. I made reservations for a Saturday night and it was great to see so many people out dining again after a tough year of COVID restrictions. Our meal was fantastic-we had pide, hummus, fatoush salad, the amazing Brussels sprouts and three main dishes among the four of us. Everything was delicious and the service was great. . It is “energetic”, lots of people coming and going, waiting to get in, leaving etc so somewhat noisy, but not so bad you couldn’t heard your dining companions. I highly recommend it.
Good experience, overall -- great food, drinks, service. Very very pleasant outdoors, horribly noisy indoors, can hardly hold a conversation.
This is one of my favorite restaurants and my experience tonight was subpar. In June we had one of our best experiences. It was terribly hot we were right outside the kitchen it was noisy the waiter was nowhere to be found. It is upsetting to see how what is usually wonders can be bad. The food was not quit up to normal as well.
It was a great birthday dinner!
Normally favorite restaurant but understaffed and too crowded.
Service was extremely slow !
Food was very good as usual. We shared five plates between two people. We ate outside so it was quiet.
Zaytinya continues to impress us with the wide variety of Mediterranean food. Service was excellent.
Overwhelming surprised by our first visit. Carlos the waiter was fantastic. Find him when you go.
Food was wonderful. Really good flavors and yummy food. Lots of small plates with unique tastes. Also loved the puffy pita that is brought out warm. We had the beet salad, shrimp plate and chicken with pasta. All fabulous!
We went to dinner for our 15th wedding anniversary and decided to try the Chef’s table. Every dish we were served in the 5 courses was delicious and we had a wonderful time. Only draw backs are that it was a bit cold in the restaurant and very loud…neither would stop me from recommending, but I will bring a sweater next time!
Great food, great service, a little noisy, AC inside was a little cold. Overall, a great experience.
Loved all of the food we tried! Falafel, hummus, octopus, beet salad. All great!
Service is usually spot on. Not everyone hits the bullseye every time.
Great food as always! It can get a little loud inside the restaurant
Very small plate for the price
It’s So expensive
And Why did you given the Happy hour menu when people are sitting at the table ?
I’m So disapointed
Great customer service and delicious food! I love coming here!
Tasting menu was amazing! Great service by the whole staff
Wait staff were amazing- attentive without hovering, patient and didn’t rush us. They made outstanding recommendations!
The food was excellent! The hummus, Baba ghanoush, and rice with spinach are must-haves! Service was a bit slow for us, but our server seemed super busy with many tables. We ate on their awesome patio.
