Zibibbo was recommended by a local. We were having a little family celebration. What a meal! Our waitress recommended the cigars to go with the yummy mussels for an appetizer. Let them cool! We burned our tongues. Delicious. Two of us had the evening's special of roast duck. One had roast pork. The portions were generous. The ladies could have shared an entre and been full. As it was we each took some home. We did share a light panna cotta with mango for dessert. Again recommended by our waitress. Dinner for 4 was $300 and included a bottle of wine and after dinner coffees. We went early and the atmosphere was relaxed, but as the evening moved on our waitress became very busy and the noise level rose. We had a lovely evening.

For added fun, and privacy, see if you can get a booth by the Kitchen. Or try sitting at the "bar" at the kitchen.

A wonderful first date....
The staff was attentive and patient...we were the last ones in the restaurant. The food was tasty and it was easy to find the right wine. It was a first date and she had been there before...one of her favorites. I could see Zibibbo becoming one of mine also.

Very nice Mediterranean restaurant
Our party of three enjoyed a sampling of their appetizers and thoroughly enjoyed all of them, especially the hummus with home made pita bread. All of the entrees were above expectations. I will certainly dine at Zibibbo in the future.

Fathers Day Dinner
We went to Zibbibo for dinner on Fathers Day. Zibbibo is usually closed on Sundays
but opens for special days like Mothers Day and Fathers Day, which I really appreciate.
My daughter ordered the hummus appetizer, her favorite! My ex ordered the Duck Confit salad,
another consistent favorite. After watching too many cooking shows making scallops I just had
to have that; excellent. We also ordered the prime rib; good not great.
Our server was attentive but not intrusive; added to the pleasant experience.
Overall a great dinner!

Perfect Family Dinner
My husband and I took our 16 year old son for a special dinner before his departure on a month long program. The quietness was perfect and the selection of appetizers and entrees were perfect for all of us; vegetarian too. Portions were perfect along with the variety of spices and sauces. Definitely recommend.

Excellent salad and fish dinner.
Excellent salad and fish dinner. Merry Edwards Pinot Noir was excellent, but $18.75/glass is a bit steep; I must have misread the wine list.

Beautiful place, both outdoors on then lovely patio or indoors. Went for lunch and it was very good. Had the delicious lamb burger with tzatziki and for dessert had the very trendy corn cake. Very pleasant experience.

Awesome service, fabulous food
I have not been to Zibibbo in a while - I think the last time was New Year's Eve several years ago. We had a group of 10 meet for a pre-theatre dinner there on a Saturday night, and the evening was pretty much flawless. The food was great, our server was attentive, the staff were all friendly and accommodating. We had MANY special requests - getting out quickly, splitting up the check - all of which were fulfilled graciously. My friends unanimously said it was a special place and a spectacular start to our evening!

The front desk was very accommodating when it was reported that we needed to delay our reservation 30 minutes and, again, when one of our party of four was another 10 minutes late. The wait staff was quite professional and alert to getting us on our way in time to attend a concert. As always, food was fresh and prepared well and attractively. Two out of town guests enjoyed the dining experience.

Easy for a business lunch.
A menu that my group of ten from work loved (so many great options!). Portions, particularly on luch prix fixe felt small, and some were hungry later. Most everything tasty--"cigars" were bland and shrimp too buttery. Pizzas were great. Restaurant was also totally dead at Friday lunch in a very big space--this was off-putting. Service was friendly and accommodating for the most part.

Fabulous restaurant. The only downside is the difficulty finding parking in downtown Palo Alto.

Great, ambiance and food. Love this place for lunch and dinner! Service was substandard but hopefully just a one time fluke.
Flatiron steak and mussels are yummy!
