Fantastic food, beautiful restaurant! We enjoyed a night out sampling delicious Mediterranean treats at Zaytinya. The scallops and Bronzino were particularly delicious- tenderly cooked and paired with unique flavors. Don't miss an opportunity to try their Greek wines which pair nicely with the meal. We'll...More

Food was really tasty but far from filling. I had a lamb dish and the entree was literally 2 pizza rolls with lamb inside. Atmosphere is really nice and presentation comes off as the swanky evening joint they aim to be.

Not wanting a traditional entree dinner, we enjoyed the fresh tzatziki, hommus, oven-fired pita, falafel, seared halloumi cheese, and dolmades. Our kind and knowledgeable server recommended refreshing, perfectly...More

I think I went to a different restaurant than all these people who love it. Stopped in last-minute on a Thursday, no reservation. Was told it might be a 30 minute wait. I checked a couple of times during an 1.5 hour wait but gave...More

We met friends here for lunch. The food is small plates so you need to order a variety. I think they overstated how many small plates you really need, although gave a range (4 per person would be a lot). The food tasted delicious but...More
