Heard about this place for years, but first opportunity to go there with the family. The location is great, and the space is airy, well appointed and a good mix of guests. Our waiter was a bit clueless, which was the only detracting factor. He...More

Real good Mediterranean food with a touch of gourmet. Another amazing creation of Chef Jose Andres from Spain. Excellent food even if you are not a fan of this type of cuisine. Great service of course. Will go back!

On a recent DC trip, we had dinner at Zatinya. Since it was a very hot and humid evening we chose to eat inside although the patio looking inviting. The dining room was certainly cooler, but was fairly noisy and conversation was difficult at times....More

Do they have a dress code of any sort? Would like to eat here before a Wizards game, so we will likely be in t-shirts and jeans.
