Four stars for flavor

We went for Sunday for lunch and were seated right away. The place was not crowded but there was a steady stream of people coming and going. The greeting was good and we had a choice of a high top or low table. As we turned, I noticed the sanitation grade. It was 91. Now this may not be... read more

We were visiting friends and they had made reservations for Sitti. I had never eaten in a Lebonese restaurant before.. I was quite impressed. The interior is very inviting and the service was excellent. I had a rice and chicken entree which was great. The warm flatbread was to die for and mixed with the various dips we had as... More

We had lunch at this Lebanese restaurant with friends. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We ordered the 3 "dip" special for an appetizer. We had the regular hummus, beet hummus and the yogurt based dip all with flat bread. Very tasty. For entrees we had a variety. One had Falafel with roasted vegetables, one had chicken,... More

I have to admit it was friday and the restaurant was overbooked, but it was not a very pleasant dinner. The falafel were almost tasteless and the vegetables raw inside and burnt outside. After the first course I decided it was enough and quit.

We are long time Raleigh residents and big fans of Sitti. The atmosphere is upbeat and the food excellent. Never had a bad meal or service here. Good for lunch or dinner, Sitti always delivers.

Ate there only once, some time in 2013 I think. Unremarkable. One of the new, upscale downtown eateries.

Sitti is definitely NOT your run-of-the-mill restaurant. It is one of our favorite places in downtown Raleigh. The fabulous food and friendly staff will not disappoint. We particularly like their appetizers; the seasonal hummus flavors are super!

Have dined at Sitti twice - both times were for lunch. Never had to wait. Food and service were both excellent.
