I went there with friends during DC Restaurant Week. The waiter was kind, while the food was delicious. The portions were adequate, so we manage to try several dishes. It was a real pleasure mixing all those different flavors. I could sense the taste of Mediterranean culture. We paid $35 per person (plus taxes and tip). The tables outside are... More

All I can say is amazing! We went in for an early dinner and it just happened to be Restaurant Week so we had the five course mezze priced at $35. There was no skimping on portion size or taste and quality. The watermelon feta salad was a perfect combination of sweet and salty, meatballs were perfectly spiced and moist,... More

This is a top 1% DC restaurant and probably less expensive than any of the others in the top 1%. So, great value. Start with a Mojito at the bar. They do a great job with the mix and the presentation. The bartenders are professional and friendly. The dining room is a high energy place. If you are looking for... More

This was a great Mediterranean restaurant that I would highly recommend. The food is great and the service is just wonderful. They can also get you in and out fast. Just a short walk to Ford's Theater.

Absolutely loved it. Kids friendly. Excellent location. Nice ambience. We had the falafel, tabouleh and Kebbeh for appetizers. The Othman rice was delicious as was the mushroom medley. We also loved their shish tawouk and their lamb. We will be back!

Big buzzy restaurant with efficient waiting staff. Menu based on sharing dishes so food came as and when it was ready which sometimes didn't work (especially when the rice is last to arrive). Food was fresh and good and although we didn't walk away thinking any of the dishes wowed us we would still recommend.

Consistently rated in the Top 10 ( usually #1) Eastern Mediterranean/Levantine restaurants in DC, Zatinya lives up to its reputation. I've been a regular there for awhile and like to bring along friends who want to try out this wonderful cuisine for the first time. Although the main entrees include items such as the wide variety of Levantine dishes, especially... More

This place is very busy and noisy from hundreds of people talking at the same time even during off-peak hours. Service is fast and efficient, pita and water unlimited; portions are tiny and if you are hungry you should be ready to spend plenty of money on several dishes. About food quality, let me say that hummus is not good,... More
