    Not a fan of Zaytinya. We had high hopes because it was a restaurant in the Ritz and the restaurant looked nice and everyone was super nice when we walked in. The menu looked delicious. We were seated at a great table. Our server was amazing. We asked about doing a sampler of all the spreads and the restaurant was very accommodating. And then, everything fell apart. Service was slow. It took a long time to put in our wine order. Our water and wine glasses were always empty. Our octopus dish was fishy and mushy. The lamb was undercooked. We only looked at the dessert menu because we were waiting to finish our wine. Overall, it was fine. I would not go back if I had a choice, nor would I recommend it. Go for lunch, have the spreads, order drinks immediately and then leave.

    Just as good as Zaytina in D.C. which is one of our favorites ever. The staff was wonderful, especially our waitress ("2050/Gulden Y") who recommended a marvelous Brussels Sprouts mezze which we never had previously. Jose is one of the best people in the world and his restaurant comes up to that level!

    Brunch menu item, Greek Style Omeleta, did not match the written description and, more importantly, was not very good. I envisioned a dish with a lot of greens and only 1-2 eggs. It must have been made from 3-4 eggs, contained very few "hearty greens", too many herbs and next to no feta. We also waited an excessively long time for coffees afterwards and my friend's request for his cappuccino to be "very" hot was not met; we waited another 10 minutes for a replacement. I had high expectations of this location having eaten (lunch) at the DC location, which was FANTASTIC, but brunch in NYC was a disappointment.

    The taramosalta was a little too salty. Needed some olive oil to balance it out. Wanted to try something different and went for the avgotaraho. Also very salty. Little bit underwhelming. Wouldn’t order again.

    Not a perfect meal or dining experience but enjoyable. Most of our plates were quite good, esp the fried eggplant and the crispy brussels but desserts fell below expectations. Our server was pleasant and attentive but as the restaurant got busier details were overlooked. The serving staff and busboys were so very nice. All in all, we would return and try some more dishes!

    This is one of the best NYC restaurants! The place is absolutely beautiful! The bar, the lights...even the bathrooms are spectacular. Making matters even better, the service was kind, professional and generous! When I made the reservation and told them that I was celebrating my friend's birthday, they surprised her with a very special chocolate creation and said it was their gift to us! Classy and fabulous! Love the food, too!

    I’ve dined at Zaytinya in DC many times and have always enjoyed it. I was thrilled to learn it’s in the city. The food was delicious however the drink portions were so small and pricey. The cosmo came in the size of a large shot glass. I’m not kidding. The wine pour was about a 1/4 cup - $21. I’m not kidding. Have your cocktails before or after dinner!!!!

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Zaytinya with a group of friends, and it was an unforgettable experience! The restaurant's concept of sharing plates is perfect for groups, as it allows everyone to try a variety of dishes. And what a delight it was! The service was impeccable - attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. But the real standouts were the dishes themselves. I must insist that anyone who visits Zaytinya orders the hummus and the cauliflower. The hummus was creamy and rich, with just the right amount of tang, and the cauliflower was cooked to perfection, with a delightful crispy exterior and a tender interior. Overall, Zaytinya is a must-visit for anyone looking for a unique and delicious dining experience with a group. The sharing plates concept, combined with exceptional service and outstanding

    This was not my first time there. The first time I went (3 months ago) it was great. This time the service was slow, the food was not well presented (grape leaves were crushed) nor was it very tasty. We were also rushed to leave exactly 90 mins after being seated. Our table was cleared before we were done our meal. I do not recommend the meat family platter.

    Brunch was delicious and the service was great . We had a few small plates including some spreads, the Brussel sprouts, beet salad and cauliflower and all were delicious . The service was amazing , our server was terrific and the runners were exceptional . This is my new go to place for breakfast and brunch , The only complaint that I have is that the sparking wine from Spain was totally overpriced at 24 per glass . That is really awful that they charge so much

    I picked this place because it was convenient to where we needed to be that night and available for a group and the menu looked good. I had higher standards for a Ritz restaurant and the bar is really nice but was quite disappointed by this place. Our server barely paid attention to us, all the food that was supposed to be hot arrived cold, and the food was pretty bland. It was clear the server had no interest in our table and everyone in my party weren’t happy but again we all have general standards when we go out to eat in the city and are paying a certain price point. I was floored how careless the service and manager were (with the exception of the hostesses who were great).

    Food was ok, service was abominable. Not sure if we caught an off day but it did not even seem too busy. It took 30 min for someone to take our order, another 30 to deliver our mains after the mezze came. We asked for a pita refill which never came and we sat with the bill on our table for another 30min before someone came to swipe our cards. Won’t go again.
