    Great quality, misleading brand

    Food was really great with an attention for details in service. the only strange part is, while they present the business as a Greek concept I found it odd to have Adana kebabs and other Lebanese dishes on the menu. Great food but definitely not Greek, should clearly advertise it as Turkish Lebanese food.

    Unique, different and delicious!

    We went to Zaytinya, because we found a parking space across the street on the eve of Obama's Inauguration. DC was packed and so was Zaytinya. In spite of the crowd we were seated after only a short wait, a server appeared at our table minutes later she made several suggestions as we were completely unfamiliar with mediterranean foods. Each dish was better then the last, we loved everything. I have never had a more surprising or delicious meal at any price level. Zaytinya is now our hands down favorite restaurant in Washington DC.

    Worth Every Penny

    I'm a huge foodie and this is by far my favorite restaurant ever! This is saying something since I live in NYC and go out a lot. I've been there at least a dozen times and my trips to DC are not complete without a meal at Zaytinya. While it's expensive I think it's worth it - much more than many other places. I've never been disappointed. Love it! Try the rabbit, anything with lamb or cheese. Skip the desserts. Do order the apricot cocktails.

    Glad I made the right choice!

    My boyfriend and I were visiting on the 4th of July, and couldn't decide between Zaytinya and the next door Oya. Luckily, we went with the former. The tapas were inventive and delicious, I highly recommend the squash couscous and Imam Biyaldi (stuffed eggplant). My only complaint is the wine, since they only have Middle Eastern and Meditteranean selctions, I asked my server to suggest something similiar to a Pinot Noir (the only wine I like), and he suggested the most expensive one (maturally), claiming it to be light and frutiy, which it wasn't,. At $12, the portion could also have been a little more generous. Other than that, a definite must-try if in DC!

    Good Dinner...a bit overpriced

    I came here for dinner on Friday night....first of all, the wait was 1.5 hrs! (This place is very popular, I'd suggest making @ least a wk in advance for reservations). After we finally sat down, we tried many of their tapas. The best ones, were the califlower puree soup w/ truffles...you could taste the lemon preserve too! Def try the lamb w/ the egglant (it has the consistency like mashed potatoes...REALLY good)...it is really good! Their sirloin w rubbed spices is delish! A bit over-priced for the small sizes but still worth trying. Many dishes have greek yogurt in it...would come back...SO MUCH variety!

    I'm a food snob, and was very impressed

    Do not miss the fried potatoes with yogurt, the hummus, and the yogurt dessert (it tastes more like custard than yogurt!). I have eaten at the best restaurants across the country, and I will tell you that every dish we ordered was absolutely splendid. Seriously, I can't stop thinking about that yogurt dessert and the turkish coffee.

    I always go to Zaytinya when in DC

    I think the food is phenomenal and the selection is amazing. I happened upon this place by accident several years ago and now make it a point to visit every time I'm in DC. I love the pomegranite citrus salad and the labneh is really good. I'd travel a hundred miles for their bread. It's light and fluffy and full of air. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
