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!

Ammatoli is Truly a Michelin Star Mediterranean restaurant, Chef is amazing, sweet she makes us feel like we are home eating the BEST fresh homemade food prepared with so much love. If I ever get married in LA I will need to have Ammatoli served at my wedding.

Delicious mezzas and entrees packed with flavor. Friendly staff. Welcoming patio for outdoor dining. Don’t forget to add the Mediterranean fries to whatever you order!

Excellent gyro and fries! They have variable closing times, so check to make sure you don't show just as the kitchen closes.

Great find for authentic Middle Eastern food. Only disappointment was the Turkish coffee. I'm sure it was the water. Not sure what can be done about that. Maybe charge more and use bottled? But the food, from olives & pickles to the spinach kibeh is really beautifully flavored and delicious. I skipped dessert, but next time, definitely.

Service was poor and unacceptable. After waiting for at least 30 minutes, informed both the hostess and the waitress that we had not been given the opportunity to place our order. No apology offered, and we continued to wait. The waitress was both unapologetic and abrasive.

The service was fantastic. We had multiple generations and the server was patient w my mother who was hard of hearing and she answers all of our questions about the food and different spices and words with which we were unfamiliar. We never felt rushed at all. The staff even moved the umbrellas to help our party stay in the shade. We would definitely recommend Ammotoli for your family or gathering or just lunch w a friend. I love that you can actually reserve outdoor dining!

Hostess was rude about finding reservation and gave incorrect table that was corrected. Did not do anything special for Wedding Anniversary even though it was requested via OpenTable reservation.

Lamp chops were yummy, spicy hummus was excellent, the spicy chicken was slightly dry and the rest of the sides were. It good.

The tall hostess wore her mask around her chin the entire time we were there and kept coming around our table and prepping to go orders. Unsafe and u professional!

We work down the street and wanted to take our co-worker out to celebrate the arrival of his first born. Dining out in a group sometimes can be really daunting but they made it so easy. The food is delicious and work every dollar spent! Will definitely come back.

Really great food. Service was friendly and attentive. My only qualm was a bit of confusion with the hostess and clearing of tableware by buss person. It might have just been that we were there too late or close to closing time but we felt a bit rushed. Other than that server and host and staff were great.

Beautiful space and comfortable patio in downtown Long Beach. The food is gorgeous and delicious. Try a number of mezzes for variety. Service could be improved. Everyone was lovely but a tad disorganized.

It's decent mediterranean fare with good service. Probably better for families or casual diners as opposed to real "foodies". It's more of a generic, casual big restaurant vibe, which is what almost all of the restaurants in this part of Long Beach are. If you're a discerning eater and are seeking deep, interesting flavors and a more intimate vibe, I'd recommend going elsewhere.
