Really enjoyed our recent dinner here. It was the best restaurant we visited in D.C. The plates are small plates so you can try 5-6 items per couple. All were great as was the service. Highly recommended

This is a trendy Greek restaurant with really good Greek food. Try the Greek wine flight, it is quite good. Everything on the menu was good. If you are adventurous you might try the delicious lamb tongue!

The food choices and small plates are wonderful. The restaurant is popular, so always busy, but the wait for dinner wasn't bad. Wait staff are great also. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant!

Five stars. We all enjoyed our experience with trying something different. The weather wasn't great, but our food was spicy and hot which warmed is up. I would recommend Zaytinya to anyone. But be sure and make reservations early.
