Very disappointed in vegetarian menu! All fried food was done in the same oil as non-vegetarian! Waitress did warn us.
I picked this based on on line vegetarian menu. Need to correct that on line and warn ahead of time.

What a wonderful overall experience! Our waitress, Rachel, did an excellent job with offering some amazing recommendations for our first visit to Zaytinya. Everything was a hit and we can’t wait to go back!

My fav lamp chops!
The grilled octopus was done perfectly!
The cauliflower dish was yummy.
The veal kibbeh was just right too.
My friend loved the halloumi cheese and got a second plate!!
The sidecar drinks were good so we just drank the same a couple times!

My friend and I had the Chef’s Experience with the wine pairing and it was amazing. The food was delicious and filling and the drinks were a nice compliment to each dish. The service was also excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Would definitely recommend the restaurant and the Chef‘s Experience.

We went with tapas and all five selections were good to excellent. The service was prompt and efficient and the wine suggestions were spot on. Noisy, not conducive to quiet conversation.

Food was excellent, service was impeccable. I ordered several dishes to share and they were all delicious. I just wish I ordered more Brussel sprouts. Lol

Felt neglected....it was our anniversary and no one wished us nor a knowledge the occasion despite asking and filling out in detail during the reservation. Experience felt very bland.

A really fun, creative meal with great flavors and fresh ingredients. In particular, the seafood options are wonderful. Highly recommend the octopus and the scallops, as well as the hummus with lamb. Friendly, helpful and attentive service. Really liked that they have an option for miniature versions of all of the desserts, so that you can have a taste of something rich without getting over-full. Definitely pricey but not over-the-top for a special occasion.

Zaytinya is efficient and it has a good formula. It still has a great interior but it feels more like a mass produced product. The food is as interesting as ever but the execution is less impressive. The baked cheese was dry and slightly overcooked. The cauliflower seemed as if had been precooked and warmed up. The lamb kebab was good with nice spices but not as special as in the past. Overall it is worth another try but it feels like a big restaurant with a large staff and not much personal attention.

Great food and service. Even though I had a reservation took some time to get seated, but it was a crowded evening.

Fantastic meal! We got the Zaytinya experience and the Classic experience and both were under 65 and came with four courses and SO much food! Everything was fantastic and happily we have lots of leftovers. They were running about 20 mins behind schedule with a reservation which was the biggest downfall.
