I loved the vintage feel of the place. Our waitress was extremely nice and helped us with good recommendations since it was our first time there. I wish the roasted carrots were cooked a little more than they were, but the sauce was extremely good. I loved my chicken artichoke dish, and my boyfriend loved his grilled kabob dish.

The Triangle Restaurant menu was intriguing, so we came here, our first visit since the pandemic started. The salmon entrée was especially good, the coconut-curry chicken kebab a bit dry but tasty.

we were seated in the downstairs area. The Baklava was not flaky and seemed old or something. the curry chicken kabob had little to no flavor. Very disappointing since we have eaten here in the past and thought the food was very good.

During Covid, we enjoyed the delivered version of Sitti, which was delicious. Less quilt when indulging in a healthier version of take-out. Thrilled to finally enjoy Sitti by sitting down inside the restaurant. Food was delicious, cocktails were amazing and the service was impeccable. We’ll be back, often

The restaurant floor plan was rearranged to allow open flow and social distancing. All employees wore masks, and our server was personable, helpful, and attentive. The restaurant has revised a lot of their practices to allow less contact - the menus are accessed via phone with the Q Code, oil for pita is in individual take-out cups, etc. The food was excellent as always, the drinks were fantastic, and everyone that served us was nice.

The food and cocktails were amazing. The only issue was that our server didn’t come over to our table more then three times the whole dinner. Didn’t ask for drink orders or appetizer orders till we asked. Came to ask how the appetizer was and didn’t ask for us to order dinner until we asked. Then he came over one more time asking how everything was and almost closed out our bill before I was able to order dessert. Food was superb. Service was terrible.

Such a great menu. We had a hard time choosing! Our waiter Hassan helped us to make great choices. He was very friendly. Overall service was a bit slow. It took nearly 90 minutes from arrival to departure for lunch For two people. Nonetheless we will be back!

Sitti used to be great, and we loved the food. Post pandemic, the food quality, and service has taken a hit. I hope they get back to their original quality and service soon.

Reservation for 1:30pm on Saturday 3/29/21. Hostess brought us to the table quickly, but after sitting to order drinks & apps our lunch arrived over and hour after sitting down. We had two tables (a group of 3 and a group of 2) arrive after us served both appetizers and lunch before us. Our waiter was great and was prompt with updates and brought us some mozzarella sticks for the wait. Overall disappointed with our first visit. Probably won’t come back. 2/5

Went for our anniversary and we were delighted! Outdoor seating made us feel safe. Our waiter was amazing. Perfect balance of attentive and giving space. Almost predicted our wants. Food was awesome but the fresh pita was the star 😋😋

We sat in the courtyard, a little baron but okay during these times. Dinner is much better there than lunch. I would say the lunch menu is mediocre but I do love dinner and the inside atmosphere better.

The pita bread was the best we have ever had. The dips were yummy. We did small plates. The falafel and grapes leaves were delicious. The chicken artichoke pizza and shawarma were great. Try this place if you like this kind of food. You won’t be disappointed.

We had reservations for 5:15.
Arrived at 5:20.
Weren't seated until 5:45 after I went back inside to persist.
We were told to wait outside.
Many people walked right in past us and were seated while we waited.
