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!

    Had to order dessert before getting meal and was served dessert (with ice cream) while eating dinner. Felt very rushed to be out before the restaurant closed. Service charge of 23 percent seems high and pricey but I realize inflation. Very tasty food and authentic (I'm Lebanese) Delicious desserts but had to eat them before I finished my entree Called the day of my resv but couldn't speak to anyone. Left a message but never heard back.

    Food was delicious, fresh and healthy. Great presentation, true representation of the Levantine exquisite cuisine. Beautifully decorated with lots of attention to detail. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, offering great suggestions. A very nice place to bring a date, as well as group of friends to experience Levantine deliciousness!

    Food & ambiance was great- would have given 5 stars except they took a 6:30 reservation on Monday but closed the kitchen at 7pm. Starters & entres arrived about 2 minutes apart. Although we were told by our server to take our time there was another staff member speaking loudly about us making it uncomfortable to stay & enjoy leisurely. That should be noted in Open Table if the kitchen closes early.

    The food at Ammatoli is amazing! Everything is so flavorful and fresh. The sea bass with harissa is outstanding, the roasted chicken is super delicious, and the falafel is the best I have ever had. Save room for dessert if you go--they are all delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like Mediterranean food. One of the best in Long Beach,

Our experience the other night was excellent as always, and we are loving the restaurant expansion - it is so beautiful! Highly recommend for date nights, family dinner, friends visiting, and any other occasion.

    This is a neighborhood gem! Mediterranean cuisine is one of our favorites. I will always order Moussaka if I see it on a menu and Ammotoli’s moussaka is the best I’ve tasted so far. The seasoning is subtle yet full of flavor. There are 20 mezzas on the menu plus salads and entrees. Our waiter was professional, courteous and thoughtful. Simply wonderful. We will be back!

    The entire experience - food, ambiance and service - exceeded expectations except for one item that stuck out in horrible contrast to the rest of the meal - the pistachio baklava we ordered to top off an otherwise fantastic dining experience. The baklava was composed of of a cracker-dry piece of pastry and a filling that seemed to be nothing other than chopped pistachios. There was zero sweetness, zero moisture and if there was any flavor your wouldn’t know it because you wouldn’t have enough saliva to transport the message to your taste receptors. Happily, dessert did not rhyme with the rest of the culinary experience. Our group traveled all over the menu and every bite delivered mouthwatering satisfaction. If I had to guess, whoever sabotaged the baklava, simply had an off day as I couldn’t imagine the chef intending the dish to be represented that way. Either way, we can’t wait to go back and explore the menu further.

    Although I had a booking set for 7:45 PM, I arrived there, waited for 20 minutes in-front of reception desk and no one approached us to be seated. I staff were passing between us and no one offered to seat us or ask someone to do that for us. I left and till date no one called to follow up on my reservation. Mediterranean restaurants are known for their hospitality but Ammatoli is not one of them

    While I loved their half chicken, fries, garden salad, and ice cream. I was disappointed that they had no pistachio baklava. Also, the service was terrible our waitress had us wait 10 min after we were seated to get water for the table and begin our order. Once we began ordering she kept walking away to handle other customers and to ask staff questions while I was ordering so I sat there mid sentence wondering what was going on. I have to say that the person cleaning our table was more attentive. I would go back for a pick order because the food is good but not to dine in.

    It was the first time trying Ammatoli restaurant. My friend and I were there for lunch on Sunday of the holiday weekend, 12:30 PM. We were able to sit outside, but the inside looked lovely too, so either choice would have been nice. The restaurant offered a brunch menu of Mediterranean foods, as well as a full menu. We chose off of the full menu. The food was delicious! I had chicken kabobs on a simple green salad with hummus and pita for a side, my friend has chicken soup and hummus and pita. The chicken was very well seasoned and very tender, and it came with a tasty garlic sauce on the side. Our waiter was very friendly, very attentive and accommodating. He said he was new but we would have never known, he did a great job! Parking was the only downside, you can’t park at the restaurant. The staff recommends a garage on 3rd and Pine, but I found meters at Long Beach Blvd and 4th which provided much closer parking options. I look forward to going back again and would highly recommend this spot!

    The food was very good. However, the overall experience was extremely strange. I rarely write reviews for restaurants. The entire experience was just bizarre. The servers, bus boys, cleaning lady and hostess were all fine but felt extremely pushy. They would just clean the table or want to clean the table when there was clearly food left. They offered us take away boxes when there was still food we were eating and in addition, the lady was about 1/2" from my face, talking directly into my face. I could literally smell her breath on me. The server, Pete, kept telling us how frazzled he was and that he appreciated our patience. Yet, when he came to help us, it felt rushed. In addition, he made a mistake and told us that the rotisserie chicken did not come with lemon garlic sauce so we ordered 2. But when the dish came out, he commented "oh, looks like it came with it but it's only $1 so it's not that much" when I only really needed 2 sauces to begin with. It should have just been taken off the bill or he should have just taken the sauce off before it got to our table. It's a bummer because the food was good but the service was a bit much. Our dinner felt rushed and every part of it felt like they just wanted us to hurry and eat so they can close and get out of there.

    The restaurant itself is really nice and had potential, the server was nice however they had One maybe two server for 25+ tables making the service very slow.. Also when we placed our order we wanted our Drinks and appetizer first but they brought out everything at the same time not even giving u a chance to unwine and relax, it felt very rushed, especially for ordering a half roasted chicken.. Which means they pretty much have all the food done and just warm it up to bring to u.. My main course should not be out within literally 5 minutes of me ordering.. Was very hopeful of this place when i looked it up.. But me and my friend left very disappointed and unsatisfied...

    Got there about 5 minutes early for our reservation , and my party didn’t have a table ready. Being on a bit of a time crunch, having an event at 7:30, we were a little worried, but told ourselves that it would be all right. We were seated ten minutes later, didn’t see a server for 20 minutes (6:25), and then didn’t get our food for another forty minutes (7:05). Alls to say, while the food was great, they really stuffed-up our reservation and almost made us late to our event. Made for a very stressful and rushed dining experience :/

Thank you and congratulations on your beautiful new decor. Also worth saying that the front of house staff are friendly and server gave great recommendations
