If not for the excessive noise, I would easily have given Zaytinya 5-stars. In their defense, the restaurant was packed, with a lengthy waiting lineThat aside, the plates are similar to tapas servings. The prices are quite reasonable so that each couple shared 3-4 dishes....More

I love this restaurant. The food is consistently excellent. Great selection of tapas. Never disappointed. I use any excuse to go - anniversaries, birthdays, out of town guest. Can be a little noisy but tolerable. One of my favourite restaurants.

This restaurant was easily the loudest one I have ever been too, including ones with a lot of families. It was deafening. We could not hear each other speak. The only reason this is not a one star rating is that our service was wonderful....More

If you are taking Metro to the Kennedy Center it is not enough time. If you are taking a cab or Uber you might be OK. Just never know what traffic will be like at that time of the evening and weather is a variable. I would... More
