    We had an early reservation on a Saturday, which was made 2-3 weeks in advance. We were given two options for seating upon arrival: six people in a booth or high top tables near the bar. We took the high top tables near the bar area. Our wait-person also doubled as the bartender. as a result, the attention we received was sporadic at Best. Out of 6 pre-dinner drinks one was wrong (a straightforward cocktail; not specialty drink). The replacement took a substantial amount of time (I saw the replacement drink sitting while the bartender/waitperson made a number of other drinks and then delivered the other drinks to other patrons before delivering the replacement to our table). We ordered appetizers two of which included pita bread. The dips came out without the bread. We waited about 10-15 min for the pita bread. Our entrées were all quite good. Two of us ordered glasses of wine to be served with dinner. Dinner arrived with no wine until we flagged down another staff member and asked that our person be reminded of our request for wine. The waitstaff encountered were polite but overly stretched and not the most efficient or knowledgeable. And this was before the restaurant was very busy. We’ve eaten at this restaurant several other times and had better experiences. Will likely give it another try but must admit the service distracted from our experience.

    We are sorry to hear about this. As I recall, we did have a few other parties that evening, and tried our best to make accomodations for your party of 6, while still being able to seat our other patrons as well, but regardless, we apologize that this was not where you would have preferred to be seated, and will try to do better next time. As for your service, we are sorry to hear about that. I have shared your review with the front of house staff, and our culinary team, and we are working to make the necessary improvements, so that when you visit again, you do not have another lackluster experience. Thanks for your feedback!

    The service was absolutley awful. Slow kitchen, understaffed waitstaff, and we were treated as if we were an inconvenience from start to finish. Two apps, two entrees, and two desserts took 2.5 hours. Food was delicious, but not enough to warrant what we paid for (with respect to service.) Save your money for a better restaurant.

    Sitti was nice! The food was good, drinks were good, but not outstanding. Loved that there was a vegan tasting menu, but it was essentially everything the table had ordered for apps, just as an entree. Service was slow, but the restaurant was busy.

    Have been to Sitti in the past and had a pleasurable experience, this time was underwhelming. Drink orders took about 20 minutes to arrive from bar. Server was mediocre at best, fish was overcooked and meal was just warm when it arrived to table. Not sure I will be returning.

    Lamb was the only thing on the menu the guys were interested in as they wanted red meat and a substantial dish. It unfortunately was very bland and NOT worth 40 dollars each. Service was spread thin too. This used to be one of my favorite’s unfortunately.

    Hot fresh pitas and our 3-dip trio was great (muhammara, feta, hummus). Kabob plates were decent. The wraps are mostly bread and salad fillings; both the falafel and chicken wraps were skimpy on the proteins.
