The food was excellent! Our waiting was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. Prices are good. Only complaint, and a small one, is the bored host constantly tapping his fingers on the stand and constantly on his phone. The restaurant was very quiet with only a few people there so his constant thumping became annoying.

We have been using their take out service and their food quality has always been top rate. In addition, now that they are open for dining-in, we were amazed at the length they have gone to protect patrons during these times and their triple cleaning and sanitization regime for every table and chair. The food is still phenomenal and the waitstaff take this all very seriously. We enjoyed the good food, felt safe, and had a relaxing evening, almost like the pre-COVID days. Well done!

The food was very good
Service was quick, good and not intrusive
I like also the option of paying at the table with a QR code.
There was a person cleaning the tables, chairs etc all the time very meticulously
Thank you!!!

It was strange at first as it was our first time post covid at Sitti and finding it so spread out provided a different feel. I know its not sustainable at this density but it was nice to enjoy our meal without having to shout or listen to other conversations. Our appetizer of the Kibi was great and they made a small version of the orange salad for my wife which was very good as well. The chicken artichoke was perfectly prepared and very tasty. My wife enjoyed the three different kabobs. For desert the lava cake with ice cream was made memorable by the honey drizzled over the top. A very good Saturday night dinner.

It was nice to be able to go out & still be able to observe the “social distance rules”. Sitti has done a great job of complying- tables separated from each other & the staff were cleaning the dirty tables in a timely fashion & were very thorough. Food was excellent as usual - our waitress was knowledgeable & on point.

We have been to Sitti many times. Due to Covid they are using their courtyard for outdoor seating. It is very nice with tables well spread out. The waiters all wore masks and socially distanced. The food continues to be some of the best middle eastern food around.

We were there for our anniversary and the anniversary of another couple. The staff was extremely courteous, and our waiter made some great recommendations of dishes to try, and we enjoyed them all!! You can tell that the family that operates this restaurant takes great pride in creating a great dining experience. Would highly recommend.

The food was underwhelming and overpriced. Our appetizers and meals were ok, but not the quality we have come to expect at Sitti. Definitely not as good as it has been in the past, which was disappointing.

In COVID times, this place is doing it right in every possible way. This was the first restaurant my husband and I have eaten indoors in since February, and probably only the 2nd or 3rd restaurant we've been to in that time frame in total. We felt so incredibly at ease - they are taking every possible precaution. Tables are spaced way far apart, there are hand sanitizer single use packets on the tables and bags for you to put your mask in while you eat, to keep your mask sanitary. The staff are all clearly masked. Tables and chairs are thoroughly sanitized between guests. We were able to be completely at ease and it felt like normal times.

As for the rest of the experience not related to COVID precautions: fan-freakin-tastic. The food was amazing, the service was perfect. Nuff said. Go eat here - support local.

The service was not great. We have a server who was not at all engaged. Sometimes didn’t make eye contact or didn’t even speak (like when she dropped off the check.) The chicken was tough but I know that is not the norm, just an off night I suppose.

4th visit; first time just as a couple so we've had plenty of opportunity to taste a wide variety of menu options and become familiar with this restaurant. Very similar experience each time; service uniformly less tasty good portion but not delicious. We will go back but probably just for double apps, wine, & beer.
