    I requested a certain area to sit in and we were seated exactly where we wanted. Multiple staff made us feel so welcome- everyone working there was so nice and attentive. Food was delicious; great atmosphere. Have visited this restaurant once for dinner and twice now for breakfast during trips to DC. We will definitely return if in DC again. Love this place!

    The food was amazing. The tomahawk steak literally melted in my mouth and it's definitely one of the best I've had. The multi fruit cheesecake was phenomenal. I was skeptical at first but I was surprised with just how good it was. My gal had the Gnochi Della Momma with Tiramisu and loved it. Our waiter Vitto was awesome as well. I never had to ask for anything, he was just on top and prepared for what we would need. Only caveat to be mindful of, the restaurant is packed. My gal and I had a good amount of room though. It's also fairly loud. Just things to be mindful of and we didn't find it to be all that much of an issue. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will eat there again when I next visit DC. Parking sucks though. Take an uber or scooter to your heart's delight.

    You never disappoint! The medley of assorted oysters on the half shell are unrivaled In the District. Our entrées of Seabass and Scallops were equally outstanding. Special thanks to our servers. One was Matthew our bartender who made me the finest Basil Hayden Manhattan and Julia our server Who couldn’t have been more professional, helpful and fun. An enjoyable evening all around. We’ll be back soon Chris Fallon

    We LOVE Zatinya - the food and even the cocktails don't disappoint. My only criticism is that last night, given my reservation reflected that it was my birthday and the host even mentioned it - I was surprised to be shown to what is probably the worst table in the restaurant - basically between the entrance to the very busy bar and the front door - zero ambiance or good vibe. However when we requested a change, since we agreed to wait, the host was great and we got a MUCH better table ---the birthday celebration dinner was perfect in the end.
