Walked in 4:30 with no reservation and immediately seated. Drank cucumber mint tea. Very good but somewhat sweet. Waitress explaining menu very helpful. Explains small plates, so we ordered salad and two plates each to share. Lamb, fish and eggplant. Very good food. Just remember, small plates st about $10 each. Waitress was SUPER good. Sorry I forgot her name.... More

A big, modern, high-energy place, great for people-watching, and filled with DC's young, affluent crowd - who all seemed to be having a great time one recent Saturday evening. But the truth is, after sampling many mezze dishes, we found that the food wasn't that great. Everything was rather bland. And some of the dishes are REALLY small, so be... More

We came for dinner on one of the chilly Saturday nights in May. We were told that it would be about 45 min to 1 hr wait, however we were seated within 20 min. Our joy was premature, however. After waiting for another 10 min for our waiter to appear and another 10 min for water to appear we got... More

We did not have reservations and was offered outside seating but since it was cold we decided to wait in the bar. We were greeted promptly by Michael and we told him that were waiting for a table but would get some drinks. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine and he promptly brought and served it to us. He...

Best Greek/Lebanese food ever...a very varied menu making the choices extremely difficult because everything sounds mouth-watering.

My first experience Zaytinya’s Washington DC restaurant. I felt the booking process was a little laborious and unnecessary (we were a party of 10) - it took a good few follow up emails before the booking process was finally completed. However, I have to admit this place is amazing for food and drinks. It’s a great place to meet friends... More

Just finished eating lunch here & must admit that this is the best Lebanese meal that I've eaten in a long time! We opted for the Mezze lunch & it turned out to be excellent with so much variety! Slightly on the expensive side but would totally recommend it!

Chef Jose Andres's Zaytinya is one of our favorite places to eat with many varieties to choose from. Many out of town guests like to go here every time they are in town. Room with the fireplace is our favorite. Just the perfect size, Tappas/ Mezze style meals with fresh baked breads to get started. Our favorites: Hommus, Baba Ghannouge,... More

My husband and I ate here on a balmy evening, where we chose to dine outside. The patio was crowded, and tables were situated fairly close together, making it difficult to carry on a conversation w/o feeling like you were listening in on your neighbor. If you're looking for quiet, intimate dining, this isn't it! However, the food and service... More
