Treat yourself and eat lunch and/or dinner at Zeytin, you won’t regret it. The food is exquisite, full of flavors, very fairly priced and beautifully presented. HK, our waiter, was fantastic and so kind. Oh, and don’t forget to taste the white Turkish wine, very light, dry and smooth.

If you like Mediterranean food (even if you think you don’t) you’ll will find something scrumptious here! We are eating our way through the alphabet (this was our’Z’) and all four of our meals were excellent! We had the Saganki ..OPA!! and dishes with Gyro, Lamb, and Chicken. The menus are great as they describe each selection… making it nice to know what is in each dish. We will be back!

This restaurant is always on our list when we visit GR area. Took our kids here for the first time. Family shared appetizer platter. Not ce representation of food. We all enjoyed our entrees. Chicken kebabs were a hit! Service was prompt during our whole visit. No complaints!! Check it out!

What a disappointment. Sunday early evening and the restaurant only had a few tables occupied. It was dirty! The floors were marked with grease spots and under every table was either food remnants or other trash. Salt and pepper pots had food stuck to them and the menu was sticky with dried food inside. And yet we stayed to eat!? Pita bread was delivered to the table almost as soon as we sat down but it was cold and wrapped in plastic. A plastic pot held some mediocre olive oil. Spinach Chicken was one dish and the chicken was rubbery although the spinach was well cooked and pleasantly flavored. The other dish was a simple gyros served with rice and cabbage, neither of which had any flavor. The gyros was served hot but dried at the edges as if kept warm in the oven. It wasn’t our best dinner experience. Will we go again? Doubtful.

I always make this a stop when visiting the area, and was so disappointed this time. The zeytin salad was iceberg lettuce ONLY with poor quality very light colored tomatoes. In this day and age, the salad should not look like a high school cafeteria lunch…..there are many more colorful and nutritious greens assortments out there. I am sure the supplier has some.

My husband called and made a reservation about an hour before we went in. When we got there we were told they didn’t have our reservation - (though he had spelled our name out 3 times over the phone.) We verified by his phone that we had called the right number. The worst part was how it was handled. They said it happens occasionally - they said we were out of luck - Zeytin, maybe a plan should be made for future occurrences so you don’t turn your guests off completely. (Give them a drink at the bar while you try to fit them in or give them a gift card towards a future visit.) We probably won’t go back.

We've been here many times with good results..but this was not one of them. Took over 45 minutes from appetizer order and one entree to receive our food. Very disappointed this time around. Zeytin can definitely do better than this...and they should. If this is typical, we won't be back.

I have lived in Lowell many years and just tried them. Extremely pleased. Both times I got take out I received excellent care from the staff and the food was really great both times. Decent prices as well.

Zeytin used to be a nice and classy place, I loved going there but since they started renting this place out on the weekends to host Bosnians parties, it has become very low hole in the wall. Would not go again. Not even on the workdays. Sorry

We were very impressed with the staff, food selection, and presentation! As we were included in a private party we cannot comment on the prices but we do plan to go again as a couple soon.

We went to Zeytin with friends after hearing positive reports. We were embarrassed as some of the food was very poor. We had some good apps such as flaming cheese and stuffed grape leaves. Others like falafel and babaganoush were mediocre. My wife had lamb chops and gave me one. It was excellent. I had lamb shank. It was terrible. I ate a bit and left it. My friend had fish and enjoyed it. His wife had med chicken and did not eat it. The service was excellent and the drinks were very good. For a tab of $ 275. I expect more. I will not return.

Casual restaurant with two rooms plus a bar area. Serves a nice mix of Mediterranean and American food. Hard to find location in back of new retail shops in Ada near Thornapple River.

After living in Turkey for 8 years I am very picky with my Turkish food. The food at Zeytin is amazing and for the most part authentic. It is the best Turkish restaurant that I’ve found in the US. I love the Iskender Kebab and get it every time I eat here. The last time my family ate here we brought another Turkish-American friend and he was also blown away.
