Went a couple of weeks ago on a Monday night and when we got there no one seated us. After waiting about 5 minutes for someone to realize we were standing at the door we were greeted and seated. We ordered 2 appetizers the hummus had way to much tahini in it and was not very tasty. The yogurt sauce... More

After enjoying many wonderful meals at Pita House it is no wonder I chose this as my choice for Mother's day dinner. This hidden gem has a lovely atmosphere tucked away in an easy parking area behind Wild by Nature. Everything is not only prepared fresh and to perfection, but after many visits it has always been consistent in flavor... More

I would eat their salads forever if I could. They're zesty and flavorful, it's so easy to eat healthy here. I love their endless pitas and dips to go along with this. The chocolate fondue is a bit expensive but it's amazing and a fun treat every so often. Many people are regulars here and there's a reason for that.... More

We've been here several times, both for lunch and dinner. In all ways that we assess our experience, it's worth coming back. The room is attractive and service is friendly and helpful. The food is tasty, the atmosphere relaxed, the prices quite reasonable. The out-of-the-way location (behind a shopping plaza and among a group of one-story professional buildings) is both... More

We eat in here often.....food is great, service wonderful and not rushed. They will cook to taste if you enjoy "spicy, hot" dishes. Vegetarian items on the menu. I loved the soups as well as dessert. If you want a leisurely meal, I would truly recommend the Pita House.

This little gem is tucked away behind a shopping center, so you have to search for it. Authentic Turkish cuisine that is so delicious!!! Great ambiance once you step inside. It feels like you are dining in a grotto of ancient ruins! Great place for a taste of something different.

We were at the Pita House for a meal following a funeral. It started with the best part of the meal, grilled pitas with a variety of dipping sauces. They were all great. Following the appetizers, we were offered salad or a variety of soups. All were pleased with their selections. The main course options consisted of chicken, lamb and... More

Given its location behind a strip mall, I was expecting more of a take-out shop or average lunch spot. However, I was thrilled to discover the Pita House is a truly lovely restaurant with DELICIOUS food! It has the feel of a Mediterranean terrace, with lots of tile and archways. The menu is filled with Mediterranean/Middle Eastern favorites and Turkish... More

We have been going to Pita House for years now. We find the quality of the food consistent and good, The waiters friendly, The room very attractive and because the tables are far apart and the ceilings are high the noise level is low. The service is slow and relaxed so you can spend many hours in pleasant conversation. You... More
