    If you like Middle Eastern food, then this is absolutely worth visiting. Weight staff could probably use a little help pronouncing the dishes correctly. Desserts were legitimate as was the Arabic coffee.

    Amazing spot for dinner during my trip to Long Beach! Our server was super helpful in recommending the best dishes and was very friendly and attentive. Everything we ordered was incredible, especially the lamb chops! The ambience was a really nice touch as well, we felt very relaxed and comfortable during our entire meal.

    Beautiful restaurant however unless you are having just some dessert or wine the tables are very, very small. I had dinner with my husband and two daughters and after ordering there was barely any space for the food to be placed on the table despite the fact that the dinner plates were very small basically the size of an appetizer plate. I like to eat comfortably having space for an appropriately size plate and actually room to get to the food I ordered without it almost being stacked on top of one another. It was also quite loud and pricey. I won't be going back.

    Our server, I think Pete was amazing! He was fast, attentive, and lots of fun. He paced all the meals just right. The food was bomb! Took our friends there for the first time and the eye rolls said it all. Love it!! We made it for happy hour so we were able to mezza the table off right. What a delight and a pleasure to take our friends there for the first time. Yum.

    Food was unbelievably delicious. Easily made a reservation for myself and partner. We were seated right on time and our server was quick to take our order and able to answer any questions we had. We split the 3 way mezza and had some of the best hummus and fresh warm pita I've ever had in my life. Overall we had a great dinner and will visit again when in long beach. I recommend the spicy hummus and lemon chicken.

    We have been to Amatolli a few times now and it doesn't disappoint. Their food is so good. We are vegetarians and get their Pita Bread (so fluffy), Falafels (the best I have had in LA), grape leaves and hummus. Do not leave without trying their Date Cake, so delicious.

    it's quite a strict res. system that most popular time slots taken far ahead for weekends: but we appreciated it as we got seated within 5 min. if our arrival (8min. from time reserved). our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable abt the foods which were absolutely scrumptious & authentic. lamb items properly done & freshly baked pita not to be missed. beer & wine only avail. for alcoholic drinks but with good variety & got some of our favorites. cost is a tad on the high side but good value. décor is tasteful and stylish and dining hall is sufficiently lit; noise level is moderate so it is lively but still enjoyable. we enjoyed our dinner & happy that there's a great mediterranean food outlet on the area. will definitely be back & whole-heartedly recommend ammotoli (Y)

    Our evening was wonderful. Even though they were busy the team executed very well and the food was amazing. Best meal I’ve had in a while. The busser were exceptional and his attention to detail was noticed by so many. I know that sounds like a weird comment, but watch him work and you’ll see how much ownership he takes of the floor. Impressive.

    Food was outstanding but service was off putting. They brought appetizers and main dish 5 minutes after we ordered. Felt like food might have been laying around kitchen for awhile. Then were very pushy about clearing plates. Felt very rushed. Not sure I would go back based on service experience.
