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!

    Such a beautiful ambiance. The service was Excellent and the staff was so knowledgeable about the items that were there. Cuisine was authentic and very tasty. We had such an amazing date night and would totally come back to this please anytime we are in Long Beach. We are so happy we picked this place to have lunch together. Having the OpenTable app to make a booking helped to make the restaurant check in progress fast and efficient to be seated.

    Pita with their hummus was a very good appetizer for the table of 4. All entrees were also very good (Lamb Chops, Sea Bass (2) and Traditional Musakhan), but the eggplant side with one of the Sea Bass had pits in it. The Osmalieh dessert was exceptional, but for $15.00 it better be exceptional.

    It is unfortunate that I have to write a poor review because everyone around us seemed to be having a great time. My partner and I came here for a small birthday dinner. The night started off well. We were seated quickly due to our reservation, as were our orders taken, which was nice. But after that, issues began to arise. After receiving our food and wine, we asked for some water. We were told they would get that right away. Unfortunately, we didn't receive the water. We then asked a second time. But again, it never came. We waived down the busser instead, and received it within minutes. Having to ask for water three times over the course of an hour is a bit much, especially seeing other tables receive their water. By the time we received it we were already finishing our entire dinner. Secondly, we had also placed an order for peta bread, which never came. They took it off our bill, thankfully. Lastly, I had placed a request for a birthday dessert, but, you guessed it, it never came, even after seeing other birthday dinners receive theirs. My partner and I are very easy to please, we've worked in restaurants before and understand things get busy, but I felt compelled to write this because of the sheer amount of issues we faced. Food was okay, but won't be trying again for awhile. Side note - this is the second time I listed a request via Open Table, and twice it has not made its way to the restaurant staff. I think Open Table needs to review its processes when requesting customers to write notes for reservations.

    Second time here. The food and ambience is excellent; but the service this time around was disappointing. Our server was very disorganized… so the pacing of meal was terrible. Mezze came out staggered, and by the time it all arrived, our dinner arrived. Our wine arrived 30 minutes into our meal. Same was true of dessert; staggered arrivals so we were unable to enjoy as a table. I really like this place… and rooting for it; will return in hopes of smoother service.

    Very disappointed, management was so rude and didn’t even seat us on time when I had a reservation at seven. We got seated almost 45 minutes later, didn’t even give us the respect or apologize to us. The food is delicious but unfortunately the manager, Eli completely ruined our experience.

    We were seated almost 40 minutes after our reservation time. There is a comfy and cute seating area so that was fine but the hostess suggested we could get started by ordering drinks which we thought would be complimentary to make up for the long wait time but we were charged for our drinks. Otherwise, I would give food and service 5 stars!

    The space is beautiful. The food was good, but did not meet high expectations. Everything lacked a little culinary finesse — proteins were a little dry and the balance of salt and acid felt off. Want to love it and will give it another shot.

    Fantastic dining experience. This was our second time, and it had been a few months because we don't live very nearby. And yet the server remembered us, right down to where we sat and what we ate for dinner on our first visit. She then proceeded to make recommendations for the evening, all of which were on point. So delicious, there was not a single item that wasn't perfectly prepared. We were seated immediately. Service was timely, well coordinated and delivreed with personality. The food was amazing. What more can you really say about a good restaurant? Ah yes, don't forget dessert!!! (Pistachio Baklavah and Omsalieh Ice Cream are both unforgettable!).

    The food, of Lebanese origin, is the best Mediterranean food we have tried. The ingredients taste very fresh, and, while the dishes are traditional, the food has the flare of a caring and creative chef. The warm, soft pita is freshly made in-house. The portions are very generous. After two visits, this is one of our favorite local restaurants. The decor is clean and modern yet festive, in an airy, high-ceilinged space. I reluctantly deduct a star for last night’s experience because our party was seated in line with a drafty front door that was open frequently for the comings and goings of patrons and servers on a chilly evening.

    Only downside of the dinner was our table was in front of the door. When large groups would enter a cold draft would hit our table of 6 for 20-40 seconds. On two different occasions we had to ask the guests coming in to close the door. You may want to look at having the host stand outside during the the colder days/nights.

    Reservation for 5 at 7:15 pm. We were seated at about 7:35; it was busy with most tables filled inside and outside. Lebanese red blend wine recommendation by our server was outstanding. We ordered appetizers of kibbeh and grilled halloumi that were delicious and decided on the family Mashawi feast with shrimp, salmon, beef, lamb kafta, and chicken. Everything was divine and we highly recommend!

    Best Mediterranean food in Long Beach. All three of us enjoyed our meals. Place was full but we had reservations, others had to wait for tables. Falafel plate was very good but a bit overpriced at $23. Mousaka was very tasty. So this place has good ambience, service and food, it is justifiably charges more than a typical Mediterranean restaurant.

    Had a very horrible experience. Had dinner on 12/28/22 with guests and after 30 minutes the waitress kept coming by the table saying there are other reservations and we need to finish our food and pay. We barely finished our dinner and the check was presented to us and my guests and I were requested to leave. I spoke with the owner about the experience and she said this is the restaurants policy to get as many people in and out the restaurant. If you’re looking for a nice restaurant to enjoy with guests this is definitely not the place. They run it like a fast food restaurant which is sad but every business has their own policy. Just he warned - I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    This has become one of our favorite places to dine!! we probably come at least 2 or 3 times a month. Stuffed grape leaves are a definite must! we also love to start with a ala carte order of the gyro.... then my go to is the grilled salmon, always cooked perfectly. I tried the Bordeaux yesterday and it was amazing! can't wait to come back here : o)
