Went here for dinner with a couple of friends. The place, Wednesday night, was packed. We had a managed to get a reservation. Service was good and food excellent. Mezze style and lots of small plates with bread - delicious. We had about 9 plates between the three of us and then finished off with two desserts between them -... More

A change from your typical business location is sharing small plates featuring innovative offerings from a middle eastern menu. A evening of good food, never ending variety and great environment and food.

Ate dinner at Zaytinya this evening. This restaurant is an upscale place not far from the Washington Mall. Food is mostly small plates, Mediterranean style food. Their dips are delicious, as are most of the other dishes we had. Make a reservation beforehand as they are always busy. Highly recommend this place.

First of all, I am not a fan of Tapas (I suppose this is a Middle Eastern form of Tapas).....mainly because it is very expensive, and I always leave hungry! So if you are a fan of small plates or if you just want a drink and snack, this is quite a buzzy place in downtown DC that is perfect... More

Shortly after being seated, one of the first things that our server explained to us was that Zaytinya serves small plates and the food is served when ready (in no particular order). In general, I like the concept of small plates with the ability to sample a variety of different foods. And, the prices at Zaytinya were reasonable for the... More

I've finally gotten around to trying Zaytinya (after much pushing from various friends) and it's safe to say that this is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. It's modern, upscale, and the food is so so good. You can go for any occasion: a date, friends night on the town, bringing family.. whatever. Just know that it doesn't have... More

Sort of Middle Eastern tapas. Food quality is good. Service is excellent. Prices are little high, but on a particular with other DC restaurants.

This is not the place for a romantic dinner, however if you want quality mediterranean food, done creatively, this is the place! The pita was so outstanding, hot, puffed bread that goes perfectly with a smooth hummus or delicious fatoosh salad. The baked kibbee included currants that added that little something to really change them up. Plates come out as... More
