It’s been nearly 2 years since eating here but I am happy to say it’s even better! Went with daughter and my husband for lunch and tried some different items. Staff is always pleasant and helpful, seating is definitely covid centered. You will feel very...comfortable. We ordered an artichoke and chicken pizzette - outstanding! Also had Village salad, lentil soup, and kibbe Mikli - All was fresh and very flavorful and too much to finish. However, much for lunch so took home and leftovers just as good for dinner! Definitely worth the visit.More

We made reservations to sit on the patio. It was a perfect day in Raleigh. It was Mother’s Day. Our server was very informative and helpful, Since we had never been to this restaurant before. The red pepper hummus was very good. The pita bread...was freshly made and absolutely delicious. The cheese rolls were absolutely wonderful as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurantMore

This was one of the best services I have ever experienced in a long time. Our waiter, Matt, was particularly attentive to our needs and desires. We came at 3 PM, definitely far from peak hours and ordered stuffed pepper as well as a lamb...curry. Despite the odd eating times, the pita bread was served almost promptly, warm and fresh (to the point where I didn't recognize it and awkwardly asked what it was called). The dishes were also served very quickly following. Me and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the meal. To my surprise, Matt had left us with an extra bag of pita bread as we were leaving free of charge. Overall other than the AC being a little chillier than we would've liked (it's understandable, large dining area, AC keeps the air moving to prevent COVID) was an absolutely fantastic dining experience. Next time we're in Raleigh will definitely have to revisit!More

We've been a number of times, and enjoyed our meals. Today we ordered lunch entrees for the first time and wow. We had the Chicken Artichoke and the Samkeh (salman) Harra. The chicken artichoke has a lemon butter sauce and it is excellent. The Samkeh...was served with a Kale salad which was very flavorful. I'm not into salman but my wife said it was excellent. William, our server, was very personable and enhanced our stay.More

Great outdoor eating! We loved this place. Awesome staff. Very large menu. The hummus and baba were excellent. The pita is home made and served toasty warm. The tasting platter was really good. Highly recommend.

The service and food were very good and a good representation of Lebanese fare. The complimentary pita bread was fresh and definitely homemade. They had a good selection of drinks and IPA's to go along with. We all ordered the same entree! It was a...delicious chicken and artichoke dish served over rice. We also enjoyed the house and fattoush salad;More

Sitti is such an amazing restaurant. Dishes like kabobs are just so fresh and delicious. The soups, stews and specialty dishes are fantastic. The Sitti rice is legendary. Even their simple salad, with the dressing with mint is so fresh and tummy. Everyone loves all...of the dips and pitas. We have yet to have any meal that was not amazing. we've ordered a lot of to go during the pandemic. The dishes work well for take out. Their take our process is well-organized and very safe. We get takeout from Sitti on average 2x a month. Every single time, the food and service has been exceptional.More

The food, as always, was EXCELLENT. I am—and likely always will be—obsessed with the feta cheese dip! The service, on the other hand, was lacking. 1. We had a reservation at 7pm and were promptly seated after we arrived. We were not, however, even seen...by a server until almost 7:30pm. To add insult, the table next to us, who arrived AFTER we did, got one of their appetizers comped for their wait ... which was shorter than ours. 2. To get to our table, we had to go outside and into this back room event space. The space was poorly heated, and we were seated near the door, which was left open to allow air circulation. We understand the COVID concerns and appreciate the accommodations that Sitti has undertaken, but we were FREEZING for the entire meal and would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that we would be seated in such an area (so we could have at least dressed accordingly). In sum, the food and drinks were absolutely delicious, but we will likely be only doing take-out from here on out.More

Sitti has authentic Lebanese food that is delicious and unlike any other place in town. They have an excellent vibe, with lots of space. The food is incredible and the service is beyond fantastic. They go above and beyond every time! Truly cannot say enough...good things about the restaurant and staff!More
