Everything was outstanding. We were seated quickly, our drinks were out very fast, and the food came out way faster than we expected! As for quality: above and beyond. Drinks were delicious and unique, food was amazing. A nice thing to note, I have Celiac so I have to make waiters aware that I have a “wheat allergy” and cannot have gluten, which is just the easiest way to explain it. I told our waiter and saw him actually write it down along with my order, and he asked if cross contamination would be an issue. Now, usually I receive a response like “I’ll check with the kitchen”, which is perfectly alright, but to ask about cross contamination without me bringing it up first is awesome! We had a lovely date night thanks to Zaytinya and will definitely be back!
Every table was taken. The food was delicious, but the service was incredibly slow. By the time some food we ordered made its way to us it was ice cold.
Waiter was very attentive and we were spoiled with kindness.
Great ambiance, covid safe, vegetarian friendly.
Very nice to dogs. Thank you!
one of the best restaurants in DMV area. Definitely recommended!
No candle for my birthday partner. Didn’t realize they weren’t serving mains
Delicious food, great service, and fun atmosphere !
Cesar our waiter was amazing! Everything from the food to the ambiance was incredible. Had reservations and went right in. Great Covid safety measures.
Food and service was amazing as usual. Surfaces cleaned thoroughly between use. Very safe
We sat outside. Very nice evening. Service was excellent. And food was enjoyable. Tried the Tasting Menu and the Wine Tasting.
Amazing food and excellent service. Plenty of vegetarian options. They have a lovely outdoor patio and there was plenty of distance between us and other diners. They recommended like 3 plates per person and honestly that was too much food (though the leftovers were great the next day!) My date and I probably could have split 3 dishes between us—that plus an appetizer and dessert would have been more than enough. The brussel sprouts were the best dish out of what we ordered in my opinion—and I am not usually a fan of brussel sprouts! Overall a great dinner, would highly recommend this place for a special occasion.
Food was delicious! My only complaint was that they sat all of the people that were there (4 tables) right next to each other despite the fact that there were many open tables available around the patio. Seems strange to do during a pandemic.
Food is always amazing here. Service can be a little erratic. The huge patio area is well spaced and now heated.
Nice very nice
Place food amen ambience was amazing
Always the best experience at zaytinya - food is great and all the precautions are in place and carefully thought through
Amazing food, amazing ambience. I had a lovely birthday dinner
Perfect as always!
Amazing food. Amazing service. can’t wait to go back
Food is pretty good and the bread is amazing. Some dishes can be hit or miss so we try to remember to stick to our favorites. Cocktails and mixed drinks are not good. Order wine or beer instead. Great outdoor seating area that keeps us coming back despite our memories of bad drinks.
I ordered the $35.00 tasting menu. Food was excellent and had generous portions. I ate outside which was lovely and they had heat lamps that worked well when the evening chill set in. Excellent and well paced service. Nice all around. I would recommend.
As always, Zaytinya proved to be the perfect choice for lunch indoors. Rosie was a knowledgeable, kind, server and provided excellent service. The food was delicious, very flavourful, as were the cocktails. Well, the cocktails were sensational.
Food beautifully prepared. Hot pita bread. Excellent wine by the glass. Service always attentive and friendly.
Fantastic place with delicious food and atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive.
Excellent service and good food. Had a wonderful night with friebds
We mentioned onion and garlic allergies to the waiter. He reassured it will be taken care of and all the food came with garlic and onion. Not going back unfortunately.
I haven't been back to Zaytinya in a while, after eating there, I don't know why. The dishes were fabulous! The flavors were perfectly balanced, the ingredients were fresh. It was great! Outside dining was so nice, it was quiet.
Food was good. Service was attentive. Atmosphere was great. Five stars.
It was a very safe outdoor experience. Food was delicious, service was professional and comfortable. We were not rushed and were able to feel normal fir a wonderful afternoon.
Unique Mediterranean restaurant that serves small plates/mezzes. The crispy brussel sprouts paired with the tangy garlicky sauce was one of our favourites. The pita bread was light and airy and their falafels are definitely very authentic.
Everything is excellent. I felt extremely safe and comfortable. It was one of the guest’s first time dining out in 9 months and she felt at ease the entire time. We were there celebrating a birthday and even though our server was busy, she was very attentive and made great suggestions. I highly recommend and will be returning soon.
Great place. Great food. Great experience.
I went to this restaurant with my husband for the first time and we truly enjoyed the food and the customer service.
My husband and I were here for a date night being from out of town, we wanted to have this style food as it’s hard to find in Reading, PA.
It’s gorgeous inside and out. My husband and I tried a bunch of stuff in stages as we weren’t in a rush.
Our first server was horrible. We saw him twice within an hour and a half of being there and finally with no water, no wine and no bread to eat our appetizer that was sitting there I spoke to management.
The manager was amazing and super accommodating. He immediately got us a new server. Filled our water and supplied the wine. He gave us an amazing experienced server who was super personable.
The food was amazing. The pita, the dips, the Brussels spouts, lamb, octopus and even the fries were superb.
We each had dessert and coffee. I had the most beautiful cappuccino and my husband had the Turkish coffee.
His dessert was better then mine. I had the cheesecake. It wasnt what I expected as it was very light and fluffy and Not cake
Like but good.
My husband had an amazing Greek yogurt parfait. I’d highly recommend it.
Overall. After our sever was changed the experience was amazing and I would definitely return.
Excellent food and service
Did not disappoint and excellent as always! Outdoor seating is well spaced and heaters add some warmth to the table.
Great food and excellent service. It's always a great date.
