I don't ever eat this kind of food, but Zaytinya puts a whole new spin on mediterranean cuisine. The atmosphere is lively and fun but the food is superb!

My children and nieces live in and near the DC area and met me this past weekend for some family time. My daughter suggested Zaytunya as it is one of her favorite restaurants. The small plates were varied, flavorful and had a wonderful presentation. The staff was friendly and helpful. My hats off to this restaurant. Plan your next family reunion here.

I really liked the flavors, the original way of presenting food and the service. The location is also good, close to the metro red line (Gallery place or Metro center) but I am not still I a place in my life where I will pay more than 100 dollars and still be hungry, maybe when my income improves or something happens, I might not be the type of costumer they are looking for anyway. But I do have to say that even though my wallet didn't enjoy it, my tongue and belly did.

I just love this place. I have been eating here for years and out of all the delightful little plates of food I have enjoyed, one was sorta "meh" but the loads of others were spectacular. Great wine, beautiful terrace. I love the yogurt and apricot with pistachios, it is divine!

Great Food! Slightly pricey but upscale casual dining and it is one of the best Greek/ Mediterranean restaurants in DC.
