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!

I hadn't had Mediterranean food in a while so I decided this would be a great place for my family of 7 whom were visiting LB for a wedding. Many of my family members have never had Mediterranean food. The food was excellent, tasty, fresh and well prepared. Everyone enjoyed their meals, ranging from the chicken and beef shawarma plates, veggie wrap, lentil soups and the beet salad (sooo good). The servers were so funny and sweet and very attentive with great recommendations. We tooped off the evening with various desserts of Baklawa, Osmalieh ice cream and the Knafeh which was divine!! We had a great experience and would definitely highly recommend a visit when you are in the LB area.

I met a friend for lunch at Ammatoli. We set outside and it was very pleasant.
We ordered Kibbeh stuffed with spinach. I’ve had many Kibbehs in my lifetime but they were always stuffed with meat. They were excellent and the Labneh dip was delicious.
My friend ordered the chicken kebab special plate and I ordered the Ammatoli healthy bowl. With every bite, we took turns saying that we have to come back.
Note that they do not have their own parking lot but you can find public parking on 3rd street.we will definitely be back.

Overall i love this place! and will surely come back and try other things. Coming from the Levant, it was really nice to finally find a place that TRULY represents us. Food was good, but i was expecting a higher authenticity in the food flavor. Food looks amazing, but the flavors shall be tweaked a little bit for more authenticity.

We arrive for Sunday brunch an hour early and were promptly accommodated. Our mezza choices and vegan shawarma were amazing. We love food from the Levant and were blown away by the pairing of tomatillos as the sauce on our shawarma. We would be back often if we didn't live nearly a 100 miles away.

Christmas gathering of family. We enjoyed outdoor dining for our group of 11. They provided two space heaters for our comfort. The food was amazing! Everyone enjoyed their meals….the appetizers were so tasty! Honestly, most of us said we could make a meal of just the appetizers.

Very cold with the door open that night. I asked the help to try and keep the door closed. They tried but they had to go in and out constantly. Very cold that night and everyone was cold in the restaurant.

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.

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.
