Mediterranean
The Levant is the place where the sun rises, geographically it covers the region bordering the eastern Mediterranean Sea. This region hosted a vast variety of cultures through history creating what is now known as the Levantine Cuisine which is the specialty of Ammatoli.

AMMATOLI is distinctive and extraordinarily fresh and healthy. We use only the finest quality ingredients, and all our produce and bread are delivered daily, honoring the traditional recipes and exotic flavors from the cuisines of the Levant... served in a welcoming ambiance!

Our Mediterranean influenced kitchen gains inspiration from the best cuisine the Levant has to offer. Our fresh creative menu items are made from scratch and health oriented. The result is a cuisine that is tasty and exotic. Levantine food is the epitome of the Mediterranean diet, cuisine that goes under the heading, healthy food, high on vegetables and big on flavor!

    Ambiance is great. Our service was not great, our server kept forgetting to get what we needed multiple times. I ordered the salmon & it was dry & overcooked, all the mezzas & pita were delicious though.

    This was our 3rd visit. Have been for lunch and then dinner twice. Each time the food has been very good, even excellent. The room is very attractive and all of the staff we have interacted with have been very nice. The recurring theme with our experiences here is that service has been somewhat sporadic. Not bad, but time between table visits and even the initial approach have been a bit drawn out. I'm willing to chalk it up to the industry wide staff shortages for now but for this to become a really excellent restaurant the guest service experience will need to match the food.

    Service was excellent. There were 9 of us and our server was very attentive. She let us sample over 4-5 different bottles of wine, she was very patient and friendly. Everyone loved their meals and we all took boxes to go because they give you so much food. Food is fabulous, great ambience. This is my go to restaurant downtown.

    What an unexpected and delightful surprise! This has got to be one of the Top 5 restaurants in all of Los Angeles and beyond! Recommended, we really had no idea we were stepping into a magical dining space--gawking at the ceilings(!), passing by the plush "living room" alcove, staring at the beautiful bar, passing by the delectable food cases on the way to the restroom, and the restrooms! All a bit too good to be true. Until seated in plush modern chairs we ordered what we were told by a very believable wait staff to eat, not one plate of food was anything but the tastiest in its class! Light, but deeply tasteful, nothing overwhelmed but left a lingering feeling of amazing flavors in our mouths. We couldn't stop praising the food after each bite. In an ethnic restaurant of any ethnicity, you can expect that country's indigenous spices and flavors--many pleasing and some not. This restaurant is a country unto itself! This is how unexpected and magical it is. I honestly cannot continue to exalt the flavorful food we ate, except to say: you never tasted dessert at a restaurant quite like what came next! Yes, order at least 2 or more desserts to experience the closing event of the night. These desserts rivaled even the main courses for flavor, creativity, and sharing! Perhaps many know this restaurant with a not quite magical name, but to have unexpected magical food of the highest order, completely unknown to us, well, this is memorable. Get to Long Beach! Who knew?

    As expected, our birthday celebration at Ammatoli was a hit. We started with a bottle of Sancerre wine paired with our favorite beet salad plus hummus and the signature piping hot, house-made pita (wonderfully crisp on the outside and soft on the inside). Our foursome group each enjoyed different entrees (both vegetarian and meat). My moussaka was a flavorful layering of eggplant, potato, tomatoes, ground beef, and baked with creamy béchamel sauce. Outstanding execution of this dish. Others enjoyed the Chicken Shawarma, rotisserie chicken plate, and falafel. The Osmalieh ice cream dessert provided a spectacular birthday finale. Pete our server was super friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. He and an associate sang to our birthday guest. The ambiance is open and welcoming with a Levantine theme and background music, and a variety of seating options (outside, inside dining, and bar/ bakery area dining. Thank you Chef Dima for consistently fantastic dining experiences - Eight thumbs up!

    We celebrated my hubby’s birthday at Ammatoli last night. It was a perfect evening. The food was fantastic, I’m from Cyprus. It was authentic but surprising all at once. A beautiful tribute to my part of the world. The service was great, very attentive and they made an extra effort to sing and make my husband feel special.

Great ambiance, upscale yet cozy. This restaurant has been on my list of places to try for a while now, and it did not disappoint. Looking forward to my return, and will most definitely request Pete as our server.

    First time visit for Sunday brunch and it didn’t disappoint. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and feels spacious inside. Our server was fantastic (Sierra) and service was fast. The food was wonderful, mezze and mousaka highly recommended as well as the mint lemonade. Overall we had an enjoyable experience. My only complaint was the noise level of the music which was loud enough to need to shout at your partner, at least a little too loud for a relaxing Sunday brunch. We will be back!

    The food was normal and nothing great. Majority of the appetizers are extremely salty or citrus. The ambience and the staff was amazing. I feel like I paid for the ambience and staff members but the cost of the food was overpriced compare to it’s competitors and similar ambience. Also, the gratuity of 23% is extremely high and should be reviewed. I hope they can improve their food and probably will give a second chance to this location.

    I wanted to make sure I had multiple experiences with this place before giving an actual review. After visiting this place for about 3 times now I want to say that each time I had a wonderful experience. My experience with wait time has been very pleasant. I recommend on Friday nights to book a reservation because they are popular. I came on a busy night but my wait with reservation was only about a minute to 2 minutes max. Seating areas are great, well maintained and very clean both in and outdoors. All the employees are amazing! They are very sweet, patient and down to earth. I had Lilly and I wish I caught the name of the other 2 waiters from before because they made the dining experience great for me. The atmosphere alone makes you want to be there all the time. The food is absolutely amazing and has officially became my favorite go to for Mediterranean cuisine. Their pita bread is next level. All of their dishes are amazing. This restaurant is truly a 5 star rating.
