Zaytinya Ratings and Reviews

Had a late meal on a Friday night with two guests. Young crowd and a fairly high noise level through out the restaurant. We sat in one of the quieter areas upstairs but the volume was still high until people started clearing out. Food was OK but not what I expected. The menu read better than the food that was served which seemed a bit bland and almost run of the mill. I was expecting rock your taste buds novelty based on the reputation so maybe my expectations were a bit too high.

Took my daughter for her birthday! Our waiter was informative and helped us with our order. The only thing we did not particularly like was the stuffed grape leaves. Everything else was scrumptious - grilled octopus, sea bass, shrimp (lemon, dill), chick pea fritters ... We will return.

A fantastic place to meet friends or business partners for lunch or dinner. Enough options to please anyone, including vegans. The brussels sprouts are heavenly and the salads/mezes are delectable. Don't skip the yogurt & apricot dessert, it's only a bit of a splurge.

It was easy to make a reservation. We were able to sit outside which allowed for a nice breeze and relative quiet (one of our party has hearing aids and that is always a concern if a place is loud). The food was excellent and the beer was very good. We chose two "Restaurant Week" dinners plus 2 other items for 4 people and it was a substantial amount of very delicious tastes. We all were very filled up by the end! Excellent service.

My friend and I had a wonderful time catching up. Out wait staff team was excellent and it wasn't noisy on our booth. LOVED THE FOOD. can't wait to return.
We ordered the 4 plate restaurant week special. Great quality, great presentation, delicious.

We were meeting family friends who were in town for a late brunch and some members of the party had food allergies, which the Zaytinya staff was extremely gracious and helpful in accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone left satisfyingly full and happy!

Great meal with interesting food. We ended up catching the tail end of restaurant week which isn't necessarily the best way to judge a place (but a great deal). There were creative drinks including a cocktail cleverly named "3 pm in Instanbul".

My wife and I come to Zaytinia at least once a month. It's her favorite restaurant. We love the food, we love the décor and on nice nights, we enjoy sitting outside on the patio. Our one complaint is that it is loud. Sitting on the patio is quieter. Despite the loud noise inside, it's still our go-to restaurant and will keep coming back!

Food here was fantastic. We had the Chef's choice and ended up with nearly too much food to eat. The problem was that the food was so good, we couldn't stop eating it, even after we were ready to fall through our chairs. Only drawback, a very loud room.

Everything is great every time we go to Zaytinya. Lots of vegetarian dishes. Excellent service. Manager held our table even though half of our group was late; he seemed to care about the quality of our experience. When we have friends in from out of town this is the first place we take them for dinner!

We had been here several times in the past and always left more than pleased. This time (for Restaurant Week), the experience exceeded our expectations. The menu items were each delicious in their own way, and the portions were generous. The service was consistently attentive and knowledgeable throughout our dining. Highly recommend Zaytinya for all occasions.
