We had dinner at the Pita House at the end of March. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The hummus was excellent. However, our entire dinner came out wrong. When we asked the wait staff to correct our food orders.....We were told to just eat the food and if we did not like it, they would take it back. When my daughter asked for them to redo her gyro (ordered w/ no additional toppings or sauce).... They still bought it back to the table with yogurt sauce and told her she would not enjoy it without the sauce....we just simply couldn't get a plain gyro!

My deep love of mediterranean food takes me back to this restaurant almost every week: the meals are delicious and hearty, the house wine is surprisingly good, and the service is fast and efficient - the atmosphere could probably be better.

I was walking by this restaurant in Old Town Alexandria and decided to give them a try. The staff was very helpful and welcoming as soon as I walked in, and the atmosphere was really nice and comfortable. I was very pleased with the food....it was flavorful and the portions were good. The food was a little pricey, depending on your selection, but I will definitely visit this restaurant again.

First time visiting, will be back. Went here for the Vegan options with non-vegan friends. The vegetarian sampler appetizer was outstanding. fantastic varietythat included falafel, tabouleh, grape leaves, baba ghanouj, hummus, rice and lentils and one other i can't remember. They have a huge selection of vegan and vegetarian salads, as well as foods for carnivores. the baklava was dry, but overall, the rest of our meals were superb. And the bill was a bit of a shock. that is what keeps this from being an excellent rating. The service is was superb, our waiter was very attentive and described everything we ordered in detail. would def go back.
