"Excellent dinner for before the opera or Theater. The duck ravioli was delicious, as was the carpaccio appetizer."

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"The food and service were wonderful. The small entrees (mezze) were creative and made to share, and were a voyage of culinary exploration in the positive sense (it was my first visit.) The selection of vegetable dishes was ample for a vegetarian meal as well. Our server was generous with information and guidance. Our only negative experience related to parking. The valet stand is at a busy intersection, and one of us found it unstaffed, and ultimately had to park elsewhere. The restaurant did accept responsibility.
All in all, a nice dining experience."

Enjoy a fantastic culinary experience and unequalled skyline views through two-story windows high above the Potomac River. The contemporary interior features chrome, glass, suede, and wood with accents of granite. Check out the critically-acclaimed Sunday Kitchen Buffet Brunch. The Roof Terrace Restaurant & Bar is located on the Roof Terrace level of the Kennedy Center above the Hall of Nations.

"Quality of the food was excellent, and the service was courteous and efficient. Prices, while not cheap, were reasonable given the location atop Washington's Kennedy Center. I enjoyed the grilled Branzino very much indeed, although I noted that the choice of non-seafood entrees was very limited. The dining room is large and appropriately formal, but would not appeal to someone seeking a more intimate space."
