About

Zizi Limona is a Greek restaurant serving bright and fresh Mediterranean cuisine. The inside of the restaurant is bright and festive, with white string lights lining the rustic brick walls. The decor on the wall is fun and quirky, with several picture frames and hanging plants filling out the space.

Zizi Limona's menu is full of eclectic dishes made with fresh ingredients and bold spices. Guests should start with one of the unique appetizers, like Aunt Trippo's falafel with pickled cabbage, curry yogurt, charred onion and salsa. For a hearty entree, Zizi's carries many classic dishes like hummus, lamb kebabs and the house specialty shawarma with chicken, lamb, onion and chickpeas. Zizi Limona also has a full bar with custom craft cocktails. The most popular of these is the Great Lawn, which is made with camomile wine, white vermouth, blanc de blanc, cucumber and rosemary smoke.

Nice neighborhood place without a hard liquor license, however. Serving wine in roly poly little glasses is humourous but gauche. Friendly people pretty good service but I probably won't return.

Nice for their Biilyburger clientele.

Great food, as usual. Short rib especially outstanding. Generous
portions. Silan dessert slightly disappointing compared to other spots around town and original in Israel. Noise made conversation very difficult. Can't bring some people here just for that reason.

The food was fresh and delicious and flavorful and every plate we ordered we scraped clean. Our waiter (Chris?) was very helpful with the menu and an entertaining and attentive waiter. We'll definitely be coming back!

Pretty much everything was spot on at Zizi Limona. The hummus, charred beet/lentil salad, and wild salmon entree were particular standouts.

This restaurant serves Israeli/Mediterranean food, but not the "regular" food you can find in similar restaurants. Each dish is very creative and tastes great. Highly recommended.

After waiting over an hour for appetizers and politely asking what was going on, my table of four was greeted with actual screams from the restaurant's owner, who made a scene in front of his entire clientele and yelled at us to get out. As a New Yorker and waitress of many years, I have never seen anything like this.

The meals here are always delicious but unsuspecting by description. They also were wonderfully acomidating to our needs (we had some much older family members) considering how young and hip the restaurant is.
