Unique Mediterranean fare. Mostly male staff, but very welcoming. Worth a try. Good place to go for change of pace... Try the Turkish coffee.

Our son had to eat in an ethnic restaurant for a school project and so we ended up at Zeytins We LOVED it!!!!!! We were seated immediately in a nicely decorated room. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about gluten free options for our son. We all loved the dishes we ordered. Our son had lamb shops, excellently seasoned and cooked. I had the chicken with spinach, one of the best dishes I have ever had. My husband had a lamb stew with vegetables and rice, also excellent. We shared creme caramel for dessert and it was also excellent.

We went with a large group,which can cause issues at times. This was not the case.at Zetin. The serverers were very attentive, the food came out quickly, and tasted great. As an appetizer We shared the combo platter and enjoyed everything on it. The humus was particularly good and the flaming cheese was the hit of the party. Everyone enjoyed their entres which ranged from falafel to shish kabob. I'd definitely go back.

We called and made a reservation, and were promptly seated in one of the lovely booths with Turkish pillows and decor. One in the party ordered the Dark Turkish beer and enjoyed it. We asked our waiter about the Restaurant special of 3 courses for $25 for each person, and he instructed us about our choices (there were many.) We enjoyed two appetizers with the pitas and oil that the server brought: Babaganush (broiled eggplant mixed with tahini and parsley) and Feta Borekive (fillo filled with feta cheese and parsley and fried.) For our entrees, we ordered Lamb Hummus (delicious lamb with green and red bell peppers and onions, served atop hummus -- fantastic!) and Adana Kebab (Seasoned lamb and beef patties, mixed with red bell peppers, spicy paprika, and grilled, served with rice and cabbage salad.) For dessert we ordered the baklava and cream caramel, and both were delicious. One of us ordered the Turkish coffee, and really enjoyed this tiny cup of goodness. When we received our bill, the Restaurant Week 3 for $25 was not honored. We were surprised, as this was the reason we were coming to the restaurant. When we mentioned it to our waiter, he made an excuse that only one of us was allowed to get the 3/$25 deal. This isn't correct, but we didn't want to argue or make a scene. We enjoyed the food very much, and wish the Restaurant Week deal would have been honored.
