We had a terrific lunch with a tray of appetizers, four different delicious entrees and two yummy desserts. My favorite was the salmon -- heavenly taste! Our lovely server, Kassidy, was wonderfully attentive. The manager stopped by our table and chatted. Altogether, a memorable lunch. We will be back for more.

Last time I visited it was a wonderful experience I had with my wife this time it was the complete opposite. We visited as a group of eight, our family, on Friday afternoon at 4:30 and experienced a complete change of way the restaurant was from my last visit. The service was slow and inefficient. My wife ordered the Baklava... More

Very clean with friendly staff. A bit on the noisy side as it's all open with a lot of hard surfaces. Great for a small group, not so great for intimate dinner or large group. You'll never hear each other. The complimentary bread is the best in town and worth the trip all by itself. It comes out hot and... More

Great place to people watch downtown. Food is consistently good. Laid back with a little bit of panache

But well deserved. Great food, well served. Knowledgable staff, attentive without being overly so. Can be busy, just a reflection of their quality.

Recommended by my Lebanese friend as the best in the triangle. It did not disappoint- flavorful food with good ambience. Only downside is parking in downtown can be tricky.

A good location in downtown Raleigh, parking available within a block walk, pleasant interior, and one of the very best salmon dinners, medium spicy, I've ever eaten! Prompt and very friendly service, and not at all noisy though nearly full the last time we were there.

Sitti is great for a business lunch, a get-together with friends, a drink in the elegant bar, a wonderful dinner AND a special event. Lebanese/Mediterranean cuisine is what this downtown delight is all about, so come hungry and prepare to be adventurous in what you order. We eat here often, and we have never been disappointed. Big plus -- Sitti... More

Ate lambchops to die for at Sitti last night. Fabulous sauce and nicely presented with polents and grilled asparagus. We tried the Kebonese wine ( i admit i was hesitant) but the blanc had lovely notes if fig and dates with a smooth finish. Upstairs was a bit noisy with a big city vibe, glad we ate downstairs in the... More
