We have eaten at this place multiple times and also taken out food. The food is uniformly excellent. We like the Moussaka, the Halloumi Salad, the Shawarma, and the Baklava. Can be crowded and loud.

Great food, but it was too noisy and I couldn't hear the conversation in front of me. Be careful with apparently vegan foods, they may contain yoghurt sauce.

Tiny portions but full sized prices. Food was not special. Can you scoop a little more humus and baba ghanoush on the olate? The two falafels were the size of a gumball.

Found this by accident we thought was a nice restaurant with tasty meals. The lentil soup was very good. The prep is more California new age than traditional Mediterranean but very good very and ambiance was very good. Prices mid range

I had the Fatoosh which is such a tasty salad of romaine, scllions, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, lemon, and crispy pita. I had the add-on of beef and lamb. Perfect. And really generous portion. The wait staff is lovely and efficient. The ambiance is verl calming.

My husband and I were visiting Berkeley and I was in the mood for Mediterranean food. We found Zaytoon on Open Table and it had good reviews. The reviews didn’t do it any justice ... the place is beautiful yet casual and the food is...More

I am not an expert, but I love the okra in my bamya soft, and Zaytoon's is a bit al dente. Lots of lamb in the dish, and it was plentiful -- just not my cuppa. My friend had a chicken kabob, and that was...More

This was our first visit. I made reservations online and when we got there at the appointed time, our table was ready! OK, that might not seem like a big deal but there's been plenty of times when things didn't line up as planned. As...More
