    We love Zaytinya, and also love supporting Jose Andres. We had some friends visiting from out of town, and we were excited to take them to one of our favorite spots. The food was outstanding as always, and I had the best espresso martini I've ever had. The problem was the service. Our server was very friendly - when we saw him. He apologized for how long the drinks were taking, blaming the bar. He also said they had just sat six tables before us. That's all understandable. But he effectively disappeared after our food arrived. We saw him check in on tables all around us without making any eye contact. By the time he asked if we wanted more drinks, our glasses had been empty for 20 minutes. He forgot to put in one of our food orders and didn't take responsibility. Again, he was very friendly and it may have just been an off night. But it tainted the experience we were excited to share with our friends.

    We had a lovely table for our special occasion lunch right by the big window. The six of us ordered multiple dishes from the hot and cold mezze and enjoyed every single one. My son said the chicken kabob was “the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life.” The zucchini pancakes, roasted Brussels sprouts and Labneh with zaatar were standouts for us, and the hot puffy bread of course. The pides had good flavor but just a tad too much cheese on top for us. Service was very friendly and efficient. Thank you for making our lunch memorable.

    Zaytinya is our one of the best favorite restaurants. But this time, service was kinda slow even though I requested the bigger table due to my husband’s health conditions we were able to sit at one of the bar’s table. The portions got smaller if I compare with other times. Overall, we enjoyed so much but still some issues has to be considered.

    Our meal was wonderful--recommend the Za'atar Margarita, Labneh, Grilled Haloumi, Sauteed Shrimp (the sauce is incredible), Brussel Sprouts. Our server was so lovely and while the restaurant was very busy, service was great!
