We came to Zaytinya for lunch on Wednesday based on a recommendation from an employee at Jaleo, a Spanish restaurant. We had eaten there the day before. My spouse ordered the Kofte sandwich ($13) – ground beef and lamb meat seasoned with Middle Eastern spices, sumac onions and hommus on toasted bread. My spouse enjoyed her sandwich. I ordered the...

Went with a group with diverse tastes in food. Tried lots of different dishes. Hummus, lamb, eggplant, chicken and branzino. Recommendation by server was 3 dishes per person and that would have been too much food. We ordered 1-2 per person for a party of 6. Food was very good, not exceptional. I would recommend for an enjoyable evening out.... More

If you're into varied small Middle Eastern plates, this is the spot. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu and wine. We started with Baba Ganoush and Tzatziki for the pita bread followed by several vegetable small plates which we continued to share. Grilled octopus and bronzino(fish) were two of our final dishes before some delicious unique desserts. The... More

We loved this restaurant from start to end. Amazing food, great service and beautiful decor. All portions were excellent and I can’t tell the one that was my favorite. Probably the octopus? I can’t tell. Need to go back and eat everything again in order to make a decision!

We had a birthday romantic dinner here Friday evening. It is a very attractive place and the staff is very and knowledgeable. But while the food was good it was not amazing. They are very good at helping you with allergies and sensitivities. The olive assortment was very good. He octopus was a bit dry and tasteless. The fatooush was... More

Brilliantly prepared chef's tasting prix fixe meal. Four courses of creativity highlighting Turkish and Lebanese cuisines. Amazing fragrances and tastes - delicate while pungent. Perfection!

This a fun and fabulous place to dine! The myriad of different spices and flavors of authentic dishes is amazing. The tapas style plates make it fun to share a variety of dishes which are explained again when they are delivered expertly to your table . The hummus , the baba ghanoush , the brussel sprouts , the salmon ,... More

Food was great no doubt about it. I was definitely rushed through the chefs choice menu. More or less an avalanche of food explained halfway through eating. I get two people spend more than 1. But I really would have enjoyed a coursed dinner But again food was great.
