    Food was superb. The hummus was incredible, tzatziki was super fresh and our salads and mains were all delicious. The only (slight) knock was that it took a while to get seated, despite having a reservation. And the service was slow to start. Because we had a tour booked, it made for a slight bit of stress. On the bright side, we’d come back for the food. And our server was friendly and things did move along more quickly after the crowd moved to the capitals game just before 7pm. Overall a great location and fun spot.

    What a great restaurant!! We did the chef’s menu with the wine pairing and every plate was fantastic. It was a lot of food but was well worth it. Our waiter was fantastic and made sure we were well taken care of. I highly recommend going here but definitely suggest getting a reservation as it is a popular place.

    Let me first say the food was absolutely outstanding. We had the Chef's Experience, and there was not one thing brought to our table that I did not like. But that could be because I was so hungry. The wait was interminable. 20 minutes into our reservation, we had no drinks or even bread. There were long breaks in between courses. And the wines were typically sent out after the course was over. Still, I enjoyed myself but for one thing: The fine dining experience was marred by a guest in an inappropriate, obscene t-shirt in front of me. It's bad enough to wear a t-shirt and jeans to Sunday night dinner out, but you have to curse too? He should not have been let into the dining room. (And the scribbling is mine.)

He helped to identify food that had onions so that I could avoid them. He selected an excellent wine that went well with the entire dinner. Looking forward to returning.

    The first time in a long time we had trouble narrowing down the options because it all looked amazing. Fabulous vegetarian options. Patio is covered for rain and heaters. Amazing service. Unique cocktails. They were great with special requests. Table was too small for all of the food. What an incredible culinary adventure.

Everything was as I remember it, in terms of exceptional service and the food does not disappoint. Will continue to recommend!!

    Service and quality were not good. We ordered the chefs experience - three courses of small plates plus dessert. The first was dips/spreads but no one brought the pita to have it with. We asked 3 times when we could flag someone down. By the time we got the bread, we had just started the first course and in spite of our asking them to give us time to space it out, they started bringing the second course so we sent it back. Then a runner randomly brought one dish from the third before we got the second. It finally got back on track but the food overall was just ok. The salmon was well overcooked and the flavors were bland other than a couple of dishes. Low value overall. I’m a DC resident and this is now a place I’ll consider to be one for tourists and convention goers for its location, nice outdoor space and celebrity chef, not a place to go for the good food.

    On our visits to D.C., we have made a point of eating lunch at Jaleo before spending the afternoon at the Portrait Gallery and SAAM. This trip, we tried Zaytinya for the first time. Our visit came on the heels of the recent NYTimes Magazine feature on José Andrés, so it was perfect timing. The experience certainly met or exceeded expectations. Wish I lived in the area so I could return often!

    It was average. I was expecting the food to be better from what I had heard. However, it was mediocre and only a few dishes were wow. I would like to caveat that we did not order the chef tasting menu and slightly regretted that. It seems like that may have been the better value, but my sister and I were not that hungry for all those dishes. The drinks however may have been our favorite part. I got the cherry blossom special and my sister got the 3 PM in Istanbul. Both very good options. If I were to come back it may be just to sit at the bar for drinks.

    My wife and I definitely felt like the food was good and enjoyed ourselves but some of the seasoning options and recipes were definitely not what we were expecting. I would say definitely not my favorite on all of the dishes we had, but definitely some winners in there. We usually enjoy sitting at the bar we feel like most of the time the bar staff is going to be your team but unfortunately we had a reservation and could’ve decided a table and chose us at the bar because there were some openings and I see why. The bar staff was slow, and I would definitely say un attentive. The wife and I only had a bottle of wine and a few plates would’ve definitely had more alcohol and food had they’ve been better.

    During peak hours, the service was lacking in attentiveness. Despite ordering pita bread, there was no accompanying dip, and it was difficult to find someone to assist. As a frequent patron who enjoys the fantastic food, I believe there is room for improvement in the service, as this was an unusual experience. Nonetheless, I look forward to returning soon.

    As expected. The food was great and so many choices for any picky eater. Staff was excellent. A little chilly on the patio but was a great experience. Will go back if I’m in town again.

    I love the food and the service was good but it is so crowded and noisy that sometimes it is hard to enjoy the meal!

    I booked my reservation noting that I am hard of hearing and asking for a table on the perimeter of the room. When I checked in I verified that they could see my request. First they tried to seat us at a small table where three different avenues of traffic converged on the table. I asked to be seated elsewhere noting that I had asked for this accomodation. The hostess rolled her eyes, said they were busy and with prompting asked a manager if they could put us in seating on the perimeter. The manager agreed and we were placed at the table which was fine. But then I dropped my fork right as our food arrived. I asked four different staff members for a fork while the food sat getting cold. The food was good. The service terrible.
