Visited Zaytinya on a busy Thursday, as a group of three and ordered 9-10 small plates and a great bottle of Greek wine. The Shellfish Quwarmah, Octopus Santorini, and Tatziki were all particular favorites, with the delicate seafood flavor really shining forth in the broth of the Quwarmah. We also thoroughly enjoyed the golden-roasted seasonal mushrooms, dotted with the sweetness... More

Absolutely fantastic. We debated the chef experience tasting menu or just ordering a bunch. Ended up ordering a bunch and everything was amazing. Some of the highlights were the Brussels sprouts, the hummus w ground lamb, lamb shank, octopus santorini and the braised goat moussaka. I really don't think you can make a bad choice here no matter what you... More

Excellent modern, traditional with a unique twist, really tasty and flavorful. Pricey- small plates to be eaten tapas style. 25$ lunch special with 3 courses ans dessert is a good deal

It was our first time at Zaytinya and we attended for my wife's birthday. We made reservations and glad we did as the place was moderately busy for a Saturday afternoon. As one host began to seat us, we asked if we could be near the windows. He happily obliged, but his co-host who was going to take us to... More

Their lab is absolutely amazing. And their tapas are amazing as well. I have nothing but good things to say about this place it's across the national Gallery of art and so it's great to pop in to.

The Hummus was phenomenal, as was the Santorini Octopus, the Crispy Snails,both red and white wines. The chocolate cake was to die for. .... Great bartender (Michael... More
