locally raised lamb with mint-jalapeno sauce
Moroccan couscous, root vegetables, stewed tomatoes, choice of chicken or braised lamb
layered eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms & mozzarella, choice of vegetarian or ground beef
Food was delicious. They could be a bit more thoughtful with vegetarian options, in my opinion. My wife and I enjoyed our meals, and the restaurant was modern and comfortable.
quite impressed with the warm stuffed grape leaves.
Dessert menu lacked gluten free option.
Everything was fantastic, I will definitely plan return
We love Zaytoon! We have been going there about once a week since we moved to the nieghboorhood. Great atmosphere and delicious food with healthy options and a friendly staff. All the things!
Was seated on time cocktails were served quickly service was very good dinner was great I had lamb my friend had a fish item desert was great nice place to go value was ok
This was probably my 5th time at Zaytoon. The food is always good, but this time it was a little less great. Our server was terrible (took about 20-25 minutes for her to deliver our drinks, even though we ordered a glass of wine and a beer, and I could see my glass of wine sitting on the bar for at least 10 minutes. I assume our food was treated the same way). This place is usually delightful so I am going to give it another try and request to sit in the service area of the soft-spoken man who has been my server in the past. He is fantastic.
Extremely slow service. Long gap between soup and entree. Had the shish taouk and the chicken was cold, the rice was set up stiffly like it has been sitting for a while. Lentil soup was served only lukewarm. Took quite a while to get the check. If you don’t have enough servers, don’t seat people!
Reliable good Lebanese food. The Pastilla is excellent.
It was great! The setting and the furnishing style of the restaurant my girlfriend and I both loved. Our food came out in a timely manner and it was all delicious!
Generally very nice but extremely hard to hear. Several members of out party thought the food quality was so-so, though I enjoyed mine.
Excellent food altho helpings are rather large!!!
Good place all round!
Reunion with friend
The food is so tasty, and many very healthy options are available, too. The restaurant is decorated so nicely that it's a pleasure just to sit there and look around.
absolutely BEST service we have had is a long time!
There are new offerings including Pastilla (B'stilla) which were excellent, and worth revisiting Zaytoon.
Excellent, as always.
We come here often.
The food is delicious.
Shared a fantastic dinner with my aunt prior to catching a movie at the theater down the block. We were seated immediately and ordered IPA beers which came frosty and quickly. We then enjoyed the lentil soup and fattoush salad as starters. Both were delicious. For entrees we enjoyed the moussaka entree and the lamb stew. Again, both were delicious, very flavorful hearty and exactly what we needed on this chilly evening. The only drawback was the portion sizes. For the cost of the total bill, we expected to leave fuller, more satiated. (Fortunately, we got popcorn at the movies.) We would definitely go back and hope for a little more value for our buck, as the food and service were fantastic!
Great local joint. Great for happy hour or dinner.
The food was fairly tasty, but the portions were small. I have had better versions of almost every dish, some as close as up the street. Don’t think we will be returning.
It's decent food, but has a nice atmosphere. The service was OK but the server wasn't particularly nice or helpful
Wonderful food and good service. I loved the gambi and scallops and my husband finished every delectable bite of his fish. Zaytoon consistently provides delicious food with attentive service .
Zaytoon is often our go-to restaurant when we have company in town. The atmosphere is great, and the food is even greater. Service is excellent.
We enjoyed our dinner a great deal and will be returning. Very tasty food.
Out with a friend. Staff very gracious but right after we began our meal very noisy table of family with very unruly children basically took over. Noise, drama etc.
This is all within 6 feet or so of us. There should be a designated area for families.
Love this place. The food is good, the service is excellent. A bit loud perhaps on a Friday night, but I'd go there again and again.
Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cuisine: good and diverse menu. Dishes are somewhat bland. Overall, we will return.
Quite simply the best Middle Eastern food in the Bay Area and the most delicious hummus you will ever eat. Get it with the mushrooms. It's a lovely place with really nice and efficient servers, easy parking most of the time and a lively happy place.
Service and ambiance were good. Food was bland and left me with a stomach ache. Mezzo plate app, chicken kabab, one beer and one ginger beer somehow came to $70.
The food was delicious and the service was great. We loved the baklava with ice cream.
Always enjoy dining at this place. Hostess is lovely and cordial. Food delicious. Bartenders know how to make a drink.
Had wonderful beef kabobs over couscous. Yummie. Mezze platter for appetizer was great.
Very popular in the community.
Im a local and like to bring my out of town guests!!
Very good experience as always ! We had a table close to the bar, had delicious food and drinks.
My husband ordered the couscous and I had the moussaka : So good !
Zaytoon sounds like the name of a TV show I watched as a kid in the New Jersey suburbs. But it's actually a really good middle eastern restaurant next to the Albany Twin theater. I thought everything we had was delicious, especially the kabobs and the pearl couscous. It can get noisy but if you get there early it's fairly quiet. Great service by the way.
Very accommodating to food allergies!
really like it but would go more if it wasn't SO LOUD!
its hard to talk, changes the feel there, i hesitate to go if i want to talk to friends and will choose somewhere quieter depending on the occasion
This is one of our favorite places. We bring people here all the time. Everyone loves it :)
Great spot for dining with family and friends. I was a little bummed they couldn't accommodate me with my food allergy as many of their items were pre-prepared, so I was limited in what I could order. Otherwise my family and I enjoyed our visit.
Great food and cocktails
Great neighborhood spot. Creative cocktails and very good food. I'll be back!
