Service and food where very
Service and food where very good. I would have given a higher mark but for 2 reasons.
1) We were seated in an area that was next too a adult birthday party and thier conversations across several tables made it very difficult for my group to talk while sitting next to each other.
2) At the end of the meal the buss boy was very quick to start clearing the table while one in our group was still eating. It kinda made us feel like we were being hurried out the door.

Great food and great service
Zephyr Grill and Bar has really excellent food and the service is outstanding. We were there on Mother's Day and though they were very busy we were waited on promptly and all the wait staff were very polite, considerate and helpful. We highly recommend Zephyr Grill and Bar.

Mother's day dinner
This restaurant is a nice gem. My wife and I found this to be a very pleasant stop over when going out to the wineries. This is a very well run restaurant that I recommend to most of my friends that do not know about it. The employee's are very nice and funny. the food is excellent. I have to this day not found anything that was not done right. The wine selection is very well put together. I would recommend the Red flight at 6 oz. so you could get a taste of what the wines are are about.
I would be back when I am town again.

Food was excellent and the service was SUPERB. Our server, Leah, was extremely gracious and helpful...

Great little gem in Livermore.
We had an awesome time and the food was great as always. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes great food and reasonably priced.

Good food and price
We went there for seafood food,,,great choice. Food was very tasteful good flavor presentation was good. Our waitress was very plesant and cared about our comfort. Always came around to check on us but not to much. We had a very nice dinner there. Would go back there again.

Great new seasonal menu
The new parmesan crusted scallops are worth a try - and the peas were a nice change for the vegetable. Can't wait to try the yellow pepper soup next time! The seasonal menus are always great.
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
For a dining delight go fishing! We had the Potato Wrapped Halibut and the Lemon Parmesan Sole. Very fresh and prepared perfectly. Add the Pear Salad, a perfect Bombay Martini and you think you've died and gone to heaven.
Don't know what to do for dinner? Go fishing at the Zephyr Grill and bar!

We celebrated a coworker's x9th birthday. The staff was very accommodating and delightful. Even the "hard to please" guests were treated with the greatest care. The birthday boy was happy (the menu was great), full (the portions were impressive),and loved (he was served "special" ice cream). Would definitely return. Now back to reality.

Very sweet and friendly waitress....the prime rib was a large portion and busting with flavor...Hostess was friendly and fun...Im extremely picky about my Tom Collins cocktail and they made it perfect....Prices were very fair also....I will definitely be returning!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely a top-ten destination!
This was our third visit to Zephyr Grill. Each time, the food has been amazing and the service has been excellent. We have never felt rushed or pushed in any way. The food is fresh and tasty, and comes from a kitchen that clearly takes care to make everything perfect.
We have heard that this restaurant has a "sister" in Pleasanton, and we will try that one, too.
We are very happy with our experiences at Zephyr Grill, and will be back.

I picked this as a "meet in
I picked this as a "meet in the middle" Fathers' Day lunch spot. The service was didn't feel rushed at all and everyone enjoyed their meals, which ranged from pizza to chicken to seafood. I highly recommend saving room for dessert- my brother and S-I-L split the hot fudge sundae and that cone of hot fudge is a sight to be seen!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is a bit pricey but it is worth it. Our second time here and it did not disappoint.
The food was just as good as the first time, excellent!
The service is some of the best I've ever experienced.
After 4 drinks, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 desserts, $130.

Great food and fun service
We had another great experience at Zephyr Grill and Bar. We were on our way to a concert and had plenty of time to enjoy the delicious food and get to the venue. Our server was lots of fun, too. Although we were too full to order dessert, we were each given a tiny chocolate mint brownie. A perfect size and great finish to our meal. It was also half-price night for any Livermore wine, which was great. The unfinished bottle was re-corked and bagged for us to take home. As we left, we were greeted by the owner/manager (?) and other staff, who thanked us for our visit. All-in-all a nice experience. We will be back!
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, it was very nice.
Overall, it was very nice. The vegetables were a bit overcooked and the meat was a bit undercooked. The presentation was nice. The service was fine.

Booked the Zephyr online for the 4th of July evening, got there at 7:30 and had our choice of seats outside. Very nice and quiet seating outside. I had the sole which was perfect, and the snow peas and potatoes were done just as well. My wife had the potato wrapped halibut, could have been bigger but was delicious! Our server was Linda, and she made our night. We finished with ice cream topped with homemade fudge!! This restaurant is a little gem further down First Street, but is well worth the walk! We will be going there again soon!
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were so pleased to find this gem of a restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff was warm and friendly. Featuring local wines from the Livermore Valley is such a nice touch. Will definitely be back!

Good Choice in Livermore
We met our son for dinner at Zephyr as it was almost a half-way point for us; we were driving from San Jose, he from Modesto.
This was our second visit to this restaurant, and as the first time, we were not disappointed. The menu is varied, and the chef adds a lot of flavor to his offerings. The desserts can be easily shared by three, even four people. We will no doubt return for another visit, both the restaurant and our son.
The ambiance got an "Outstanding" because we ate outside as the evening temperature was perfect for that.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an amazing dinner!! Been here 3x and it keeps getting better!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a little trouble on a busy day with food prep, but made up for it by paying for our appetizer. Food was outstanding and service was good.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I found the food at the Zephyr to be unusually good for a grill. They took basic dishes and turned them into something special. The vegetables were very fresh and delicious. I was especially pleased with the special summer seafood risotto. Good combination of fish and the risotto nice and creamy. Good wine list and really liked the fast that they offered two glass sizes - a 6 oz and a 9 oz. Was a bit noisy but then I got used to it. Looks to be a popular place in Livermore. One concern, it's a bit out of the main downtown area for me but there is plenty of free parking.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful service and food
Found this place on open table. There were 6 of us that met there. None of us live in Livermore. We absolutely could not have been happier. The menu choices, the service, and taste of the food we ordered could not have been any better. A few of us got the risotto and I highly recommend it! 2 of us had the grilled pear dinner salad. I changed the dressing to balsamic and it was delicious. My friend did not make any changes and said it was delicious. All of us enjoyed our meals very much!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a girl here on our first date, we are both foodies so it work perfectly. The cocktails were delicious and the food was presented very nicely and tasted as delicious as it looked. We will definitely be back.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite place for a Date Night! Dinner was outstanding with a friendly and attentive Staff which made the evening special.
Also, saw other friends enjoying a Date Night @ Zephyr!!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had another fabulous experience at Zephyr Bar and Grill. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary, so they pulled out all of the stops to make us feel special. Even though we were 30 minutes early, we were seated right away. The hostess was so concerned that we get a good booth. Our server, Colin, was fantastic! His sense of humor fit right in with ours and he was very attentive to our needs. Our anniversary treat was an unbelievable dessert concoction. Forget the delicious pork chop that could be taken home and enjoyed later, it was due or die for that dessert! I had to run 5 miles the next day to burn-off the calories, but all worth it! The chopped salad was fabulous and my husband enjoyed his fish tacos. Pork chop tonight, yippee!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here Friday night
We came here Friday night to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were visiting from out of town and read the good reviews on Yelp and the restaurant food did not disappoint. The server was extremely knowledgeable of both the food and the wine and described everything well, to help us choose our entree. The only complaint I have is it took 45 minute-1 hour to get our appetizer and entree from the time we were seated.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Started out shakey
We were really excited to dine here because of the crowds. We were nervous when the salads came drenched in dressing but were revived when we tasted the fish. It was excellent. Service was great too. We will return for sure but ask for the dressing on the side! The wine list is local which is great.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice neighborhood gem
My 1st dining experience and I was very pleased with the food and ambience. Calamari was excellent. Salads were a bit on the small side. I was told it was like a starter salad however it was intended to be my entree. Loved the trio of butters served with bread! Looking forward to going back!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant, great food.
This is a fabulous place to meet with friends for a cozy dinner. Plenty of ambiance, unique food combinations, good wine and spirits selection. Add to that attentive and quick service and you've got yourself a winner.

Great Service, great food
Cashed in a gift card that was given to us from our Realtor after closing our home. We have never been before but we will definitely be back! Food and service was absolutely great!

One of the best restaurants
One of the best restaurants in Livermore. The food is excellent- wine and beer selections are great too. And free corkage on any Livermore Valley wine you care to bring. Would like to see more locally sourced and sustainable selections on the menu.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place relax and eat.
Atmosphere is a nice place. Can accommodate large parties. Food just ok. Probably more of a bar food. Need to expand
there wine list variety for Napa and other areas, although, they are supporting there local wineries. But, looking to try there
sunday fried chicken specialty.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
On top of it
Our server and the rest of the staff were very on top of it... Filled glasses, food came in a good amount of time, etc. But they kept trying to clear our plate of fries that we were still munching on 4 times ;) while we are winding down our dinner maybe the staff could too a bit. Other than that... very enjoyable experience!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great place to dine. Looking for a great place to eat and wait out the traffic from the city? Look no further. Stumbled on to this great restaurant while on google. So glad I did. Great food and service. Can't wait to go back.
10/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
A Perfect Date Place
A friend had recommended this restaurant to me a while back. I finally got an opportunity to go with my boyfriend. I'm happy to say it was everything my friend had said it was and everything I was hoping it would be. It just off of the main dining entertainment area, but that was okay. The hostess, waiter and food was fabulous. I'd definitely go again and again :)
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful cocktails. Our server was excellent. My filet was over cooked and she took it back no problem. When she brought out the new one she asked me to cut into it before she walked away to make sure it was cooked to my specifications. Wonderful service.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch at Zephyrs is a Treat
Close to Downtown, but away from the bustle- very nice ambiance and tasty entrees. The Chicken piccata was delightful- moist and flavorful. Hearty salads. Very excellent service!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for the firs time as a referral from a friend. Food was amazing, service was exceptional and even received a complimentary dessert! Was kinda noisy by the bar side wish we had a quieter table.. Will definitely come back again!!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was outstanding. Service was right on. The food was right on and the outside seating was perfect.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Really good food and great service. My wife had the molasses meatloaf and I had the potato wrapped halibut. The meatloaf and mashed potatoes were amazing. The halibut was delicious and cooked perfectly. The bed of spinach below it was very fresh, but maybe a little too much of it. Drinks were well made.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Zephyr is awesome!!
Absolutely love the staff, food, wine. Great place.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a reservation at 6. We were seated by 6. We ordered, were served and paid the bill by 6:30. Delicious food, fantastic service and classy experience. By far the best place we have been to in quite a while. Will recommend to anyone we know visiting Livermore.

Zephyr Grill & Bar
This is our favorite restaurant in Livermore. They have a great happy hour and their dinner menu has so many choices. Everything on the menu is great.

Great Find, Great Food! Perfect!!
We're relatively new to the Pleasanton/Livermore area, and have honestly had a difficult time finding a really, really good restaurant. My daughter was coming to town for her birthday, and we wanted to take her out to celebrate. I found the Zephyr Grill online, and the reviews were good, so we gave it a try. The service was perfect, and the food was even better. My husband had the meatloaf, and raved. I had the sole, it's a very healthy serving of sole and mashed potatoes, and was so sorry I couldn't finish everything on my plate. It was Mouthwatering!! We had the artichoke and gruyere and the crabcakes as appetizers, and some tasty martini's to top the night off. Couldn't have been happier and will definitely go back.

Wine Tasting & Great Service
We came to support local winery Cedar Mountain that was doing a wine tasting and continue to be impressed with Zephyr's food and incredible service. We love this place so much.
