    First visit, and will be the only visit. Service was extremely slow. Took over 15 minutes before the server asked for our drink request. For a 4 course meal, took over 2-hours just to complete it. I saw 5 couples that arrived after us, complete their meal and leave before we completed.
    Zaytinya - DCResponded 1 day ago
    Thanks for visiting us, George S. We're truly sorry to hear about your experience. It's disappointing to know that you felt the service was slow and it took you over an hour to complete your meal. This is not the standard we strive to provide at Zaytinya. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we'll certainly take your feedback into account to improve our service. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and provide a more positive experience. The Management Team

    I had Humkar begendi in this restaurant many times and love it. This time it was not freshly done and only half reheated. Disppointed! The rest of the food was good, but not at the level I am used to
