Zikrayet Alexandria reviews from OpenTable diners
  • OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Food was fairly good. Service was substandard. My drink was served after I finished my dinner. Outdoor seating is fine however the inside was very impersonal and lacked warmth.

    We went on a Monday night and it was fairly quiet but there was a big TV on one wall. Seems they sometimes have live music. The ambience is pretty simple, no tablecloths on the tables. Choice of food is good, quality okay. This seems to be more a place to smoke hookah which I was not aware. There were several groups there that were smoking which detracted a bit from our positive experience.

    I didn't realize this place was a hookah lounge until it was too late (I HATE smoke.) If you're into hookah, this is the place for you. Best tabouleh I've ever had, and their kibbeh and labneh were quite good too. Service was kind of abrupt, but I have come to expect that if I don't order alcohol at a joint with a full page of alcoholic beverages on the menu. I know it keeps the tab too low to satisfy most servers. The restaurant is just one big open room, and around 7:30, all the waitresses run around in low-cut black tanks. I noticed they all took their break together too. Big plus was that there is a parking lot, so you don't have to drive around trying to find a spot. If it weren't for the hookah, I'd probably go back.
    Special Features:
    fit for foodies, good for groups, hot spot

    I live walking distance away and had no clue this restaurant/hookah bar existed. Food was solid and we mainly had a bunch of appetizers so I'd like to taste entrees next time. The apps were solid, The hommous, spinach pies, cheese rolls,sambousik were all yummy. The cauliflower, sliders, and spicy sausage were just okay and I probably wouldn't get again. I wasn't able to hookah during this meal but I will definitely be back for that. It was a nice evening when we went so we were able to sit outside in their "lounge" type area with the heat lamps.

    Great staff, especially the Syrian server really nice guy, he has a great sense of humor, he wasn't our server but was always around to check on us. He's a keeper, we'd come back just for him, thank you!

    we were confused by what this was supposed to be. didn't seem interested in building restaurant clientele as much as catering to nightclub scene.

    Zikrayet is located in Alexandria, VA location is the only thing good about this place. The staff is rude which you will discover right from the entrance. It took us forever to receive menu's, we asked for water 4 times. We finally ordered cocktails, plain old fashioned, basic Martini’s, we got vodka on the rocks. We mention that the drinks were incorrect, the server became very rude, took them back and we waited 15 minutes more min for drinks. Food was over-priced and not prepared well & t hey rarely checked on our hookah. The servers took responsibility for their bad service by sneaking automatic gratuity onto our dining check; for a party of 2.

    My husband and I were looking for something different, and didn't want the hassle of finding parking, so we decided to try Zikrayet. It is conveniently located, off of Eisenhower Drive, and THE FOOD IS GREAT! The service was also great and everyone is friendly. While we did not stay late, there is entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. It's a nice place to relax and feel comfortable. We have already been recommending this place to our friends.
