A wide variety of well prepared mezze ( appetizers) served in a noisy, crowded, space by servers with an attitude. That about sums up my experience. This is by no means great food. It is good by DC standard but when you compare this mezze with what is served in Aleppo, Beirut, Cairo , Dubai or even NYC it falls short. Mezze is generally served when all the dishes are served at one time and not the way it trickles painfully at Zaitinya. Is it inexpensive ? Yes, but considering that most of this food is not made to order, and the ingredients are rather inexpensive, it may be a bit even over-priced. So lower your expectations, be prepared for long wait times and poor service. But food is OK.
