Great service, amazing food and awesome ambiance. Dinner has a cooler vibe but the quality of food and service isn't affected by time of day which is impressive. It isn't cheap but I still think it's worth every penny!

Zaytinya remains a favorite after several years. Delicious and unique dishes, delightful environment and attentive wait staff make for a dependably memorable experience. Each trip, we enjoy other excellent DC restaurants but Jose Andres' Zaytinya is still #1.

I agree with the prior answer. However when we were there a couple came in with an infant in a stroller and slept through dinner.
