BarFly's Review of Zaytoon (CLOSED)
Sadly, Zaytoon is closing it's doors on March 29th 2010.
Stylish new artsy Alberta hangout. Full bar and great cocktails. Mezza style dishes: small, inexpensive and distinct. For those with a hearty appetite there are seven entrees to be enjoyed.
1x TV for sports/election coverage

If you don't like watching sports, don't go during game time...
Sunday beer and brew was a good deal. Friends and I played free pool upstairs. Had the space to ourselves. The darker beers on tap were tasty and average in price. Not as queer as I'd hoped.
We've been regulars at Zaytoon for quite some time and always get great service and food (don't skip Baba's burger . . . it's tasty). They have a full bar and a good wine/beer selection. The flat screen TV is a plus for games, prez/VP debates, etc.
If you're in the Alberta Arts neighborhood, we highly recommend this place!
Good mixed drink menu, delicious little mediterranean "pizzas" on pita with feta, olives, etc.. Nice vibe- people of all stripes and allegiances and the best deal ever on slow sunday evenings/nights: veggie burger (or meat) + any pint + pool for 6 dollars!
Damn, I was SO excited about this joint...a queer bar in a cool neighborhood outside of the usual downtown area. WHAT A JOKE! We get there, and the waitress acknowledges us, but it takes her 10 min to take our fuckin' drink order, another ten to make them, no water, the joint had NO air conditioining ('twas hot that day)...and the food? BLECH!!!!!! Horribly greasy hummus, pickled vegetables that tasted like shit and small ass portions. Also, hair in my food and drinks were shit. AVOID @ ALL COSTS! Yet again, another reason why I don't eat @ gay bars...they are for drinks only!
I was so excited there was to be a lesbian bar in the neighborhood. It is not a dyke bar, but a great bar all the same -- one where I know I can go for good food, very tasty drinks & to look at the pretty girls (on both sides of the bar). I also appreciate that the heterosexual (brrr) crowd is comfortable, a bar that is really what portland is about. By the way, the Happy Hour is awesome!
I stop in for a quick one when the list at bishops is long, Bar Tenders are top notch and friendly too...Even with all the lesdians sitting at the bar I still got great service,Good drinks great food...I like a zaytoony(dirty martini)
