Our Mediterranean influenced kitchen gains inspiration from the best cuisine the Levant has to offer. Our fresh creative menu items are made from scratch and health oriented. The result is a cuisine that is tasty and exotic. Levantine food is the epitome of the Mediterranean diet, cuisine that goes under the heading, healthy food, high on vegetables and big on flavor!

Service was poor and unacceptable. After waiting for at least 30 minutes, informed both the hostess and the waitress that we had not been given the opportunity to place our order. No apology offered, and we continued to wait. The waitress was both unapologetic and abrasive.

The service was fantastic. We had multiple generations and the server was patient w my mother who was hard of hearing and she answers all of our questions about the food and different spices and words with which we were unfamiliar. We never felt rushed at all. The staff even moved the umbrellas to help our party stay in the shade. We would definitely recommend Ammotoli for your family or gathering or just lunch w a friend. I love that you can actually reserve outdoor dining!

Hostess was rude about finding reservation and gave incorrect table that was corrected. Did not do anything special for Wedding Anniversary even though it was requested via OpenTable reservation.

Lamp chops were yummy, spicy hummus was excellent, the spicy chicken was slightly dry and the rest of the sides were. It good.

The tall hostess wore her mask around her chin the entire time we were there and kept coming around our table and prepping to go orders. Unsafe and u professional!

We work down the street and wanted to take our co-worker out to celebrate the arrival of his first born. Dining out in a group sometimes can be really daunting but they made it so easy. The food is delicious and work every dollar spent! Will definitely come back.

Really great food. Service was friendly and attentive. My only qualm was a bit of confusion with the hostess and clearing of tableware by buss person. It might have just been that we were there too late or close to closing time but we felt a bit rushed. Other than that server and host and staff were great.

Beautiful space and comfortable patio in downtown Long Beach. The food is gorgeous and delicious. Try a number of mezzes for variety. Service could be improved. Everyone was lovely but a tad disorganized.

It's decent mediterranean fare with good service. Probably better for families or casual diners as opposed to real "foodies". It's more of a generic, casual big restaurant vibe, which is what almost all of the restaurants in this part of Long Beach are. If you're a discerning eater and are seeking deep, interesting flavors and a more intimate vibe, I'd recommend going elsewhere.

Came here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We sat outside literally right next to the corner street light. This is the only complaint I have about this restaurant. Aside from that, the waitress was extremely friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and fresh. The flavors are authentic, I had my children with me and they loved it. Definitely recommend!

While we stayed in Long Beach for a weekend we found this place on Open Table. Although it has taken me almost 3 weeks to write a review I want to acknowledge the fact that this was a great choice.

We were nicely seated outside and although we were seated closer to the street corner we still received good service.

Our food was awesome! We loved the garlic sauce aioli and would drive back to Long Beach just for it.

Our friends that are Long Beach locals suggested another restaurant but I have hard time seeing how it could top what we had here.

Great service from all FOH staff; bussers and multiple servers checked on us regularly. We even met the owner who came out to talk to us and say hi to our dog. We’re always on the lookout for new places and this one is a keeper, even if it means driving from Huntington just to eat here.

I had very high expectations from the reviews and sadly I didn’t live up to it.

We sat at our table waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, and no server came for more than 20 mins. Was really looking forward to the garlic fries, but they were cold and a bit soggy :(

Our food was good, the server was well informed on the menu and described items to us as we didn’t recognize some of the names. I would give them a second chance.

Also there’s a parking structure a little down the street with free 2 hour parking so you don’t have to worry about street parking !
