    They don't try very hard. Don't let the Ritz connection fool you. Food was mediocre, service was inattentive, they don't even have mustard... but the vibe is nice enough.

    Won't be back. Zaytinya feels like an airport or Vegas branch of a 'real' restaurant, and I should have guessed when I saw it was inside a hotel. Way too much clearing and hovering, and yet no feeling of 'management' of the overall experience. Can't tell which dishes were meant to be cold, since they all were, and all dishes came at once despite the table being far too small to hold them. Feels like a house where the parents are away. Restaurant was less than half full and yet we felt rushed by staff. Great idea, great menu, falls well short of expectation, especially at these prices, and the OBNOXIOUS process of reserving with a credit card, and then being stalked to confirm at least FIVE times on text, phone and email. Ridiculous. Strictly for tourists staying in the hotel. Too bad, I'm a big fan of Jose Andres, but this feels like everything wrong with the celebrity chef model of the restaurant business.

    I love Zaytina but still getting use to the small plates. It be nice to have more full meal options because i never get it right with small plates. Previously twice i felt like we ordered too many and last night i felt like it was too few and not a full meal.

    The most enjoyable night out in a long time. The space is large which may seem like it would be loud, but it was easy to hear our conversation. The was outstanding. With so many options, we could not decide so we went for the tasting menu. It was 100% worth it. Each dish was a delicious and getting to try so many items was a delight. The best part of the evening was our service. Harby had a smile and a warming presence that was infectious. He was accommodating and helpful, making sure to explain each dish and ensuring we had everything we needed. In observation, we could see that everyone around us was enjoying their food as well. Smiles and full bellies all around.

    The service was so terrible that it tainted the whole experience. We were there to celebrate a birthday, and ordered a bottle of cava - the waiter spilled half on the table while opening and the cava was warm. Rather than immediately bring a new bottle he just offered to put that one on ice. It took some time for someone to finally bring us a glass of cold cava and put the bottle on ice. The main course came before we had finished our appetizer and not all the orders came out at same time. All in all terrible

    I have always wanted to eat at one of Jose Perez' restaurants and was so excited to finally to so. It did not disappoint. The food was unique and delicious, the service quietly impeccable and attentive. My cousin and I so enjoyed lunch, I took my daughter there for breakfast the next day. Wonderful.

    The food was delicious and ambiance was very pleasant. Our waitress was sweet but didn’t fully understand english. She didn’t bring certain items and didn’t follow up on several simple requests. For example, coffee was served without milk or sweetener and it took an extremely long time to get either. I will go back and hope for a better server.

    Only complaint is they only have one restroom for a large restaurant and there is always a long line (in the area where the runners are trying to get by). Yes there are hotel restrooms in the same building but it’s mildly inconvenient to have to leave the restaurant to seek out the attached hotel restrooms.

    I’ve been a few times but tonight I just don’t know what happened? There was 5 people and we ordered multiple of dishes which didn’t end up coming and hardly any food. The salmon fillet was not even enough for 1 person in any normal scenario. So small. We had to complain and they shouted dessert which was nice but honestly it was to much fussing to get the food we ordered and then had to order much more. Tonight was very disappointing.

    The person who seated us, with short hair, was rigid. Honey, smile. We’re your customers, guests. I guess that concept isn’t really entertained in the West. Nonetheless, this is a Turkish/Lebanese restaurant. Learn some hospitality for the job. I went to the bathroom, came back, she was seating a coupe in a table next to us. She was blocking the tiny pass to my table, she saw me, she didn’t move fast, didn’t instruct her guests to clear the way, stood there like a statue: rigid and motionless. Also, what’s up with the bathroom situation? Looks like a Central Park toilet. An endless line of wanna-pees. A decent host from the hotel saw the line, felt bad for us, let everyone know there’s a vacant, more accommodating bathroom in the 2nd floor, and even escorted us to the elevator. Thank you, sir. Food? Good. Not my first time and SHOKED at that hostess.

    AWFUL AND RACIST experience - DO NOT COME HERE when we finished our meal, the waitress came with the check. We paid with cash, so we left cash plus tax and tip in the bill. When we got up to leave, the waitress had the audacity to say “DID YOU’LL EVEN PAY”. We felt an undertone of racism when she said that, and we instantly opened the bill to show her the cash. Truly awful experience. Another bad experience - when we sat at our table, another waiter came to check in my coat. He did not bother to get me a slip for the coat, even though I asked five times. Eventually when we were leaving, I asked for my coat and they didn’t know which slip number was attached to my coat so I had to go into the coat room and find my own coat. What kind of restaurant does this??? NEVER COMING BACK AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.

    Food and service at this restaurant are outstanding! This was my second time eating there and it didn't disappoint. So glad they participated in restaurant week. Good sized portions and truly delicious food. Friendly attentive staff. When the restaurant is full, it's quite noisy- no one's fault, just the acoustics of the room.

    Lots of people and energy but not enough staff to handle- I was there after a spa experience at the hotel w/clients and spent around $2,000 in all- had hoped for a better, more refined and attentive experience.
