No wait upon arrival with
No wait upon arrival with reservation. Everything from the beverages, appetizers, & entrees was superb. The service however was slow & several times multiple requests were needed to have drinks and food brought. Will return to this restaurant in the future with the hope of better service from the staff.

Great option for Mexican food
Great option for Mexican food in South Coast Plaza - the Texas-based menu allows for a different take on traditional California Mexican.

Chef specials were very good.
Chef specials were very good. Different. A lot of time was put in the presentation. Service was very quick and attentive. Great decor. A little tough to find on the first time out. Should update their map. Showed it was located on Fairview.

Took a group of 7. Would have been better if the staff got my order right. Didn't want to cause a scene and have everyone wait to start while the kitchen fixed my order, so just ate the salad they brought.

The food here is yummy! It is not your typical mexican and has a fun and flavorful twist. The tableside guacamole is yummy and menu options include a variety.

Mothers Day Secret
Wide variety of Brunch and Lunch menu items. The Bloody Mary/Mimosa bar is great. We can’t stand those Mother’s Day Pre-fix menus wit scrambled eggs and salmon for $40. This place is great.

I made reservations so that I could assure that we got a table because we were going to see a play at 7:30pm. We arrived a little late because of traffic and they were very accomodating. We were with some friends that had never been there and I was worried because our male friend is very particular about where he eats. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was amazing and we were out in plenty of time.

Nice restaurant before going to the show. Food is tex-mex with a little "flare".

My friends and I like to share
My friends and I like to share happy hour appetizers before going on to South Coast Repertory or the Performing Arts Center. The food is good, the service friendly and speedy and the price is right.

Service was Busy, BUT food awesome
My girlfriend and I go here all the time. WE LOVE IT here. Today's service was just a bit busy with a lot of people coming around and Service seldomly to our table because of the amount of people. I really just wanted my soda's to be refilled when we were eating. Nothing much else to say. We will still be going here so yeah.

Z'Tejas Lunch specials
The food was good. However the fish selection which we intially ordered, we were informed by the manager that they had "run out of the Talapia". That constitutes bad planning on the part of management. Other than that it was a good experience and my third visit there at the South Coast Plaza.

Miss having a ZTejas down the street, so when we are in town hit up South Coast for our delisious favorites.

We usually go to Z'Tejas South Coast before a theater performance. It is conveniently located across from Orange County Performing Arts Center complex. Every effort is made by the servers to help us get to the show on time. Additionally, the menu selections have always been excellent.

Great service & food full of flavor
It took us a little while to actually find the restaurant, but once we did, it was so worth it. Our server was very attentive, warm, friendly and genuine. I was very impressed and happy that they have a separate vegetarian menu. The tableside guacomole was quite delicious as were my wild mushroom enchiladas. Lots of flavor! The cornbread was also quite tasty and surprisingly light in texture. My first experience eating at Z Tejas was in Austin, Texas, and I didn't even realize there was one in California. I would definitely eat here again!

Great food and SERVICE! Our
Great food and SERVICE! Our server was Jeff Beene and he was attentive and told us all about what kinds of Happy Hour food and drinks were offered. He was friendly and it was our first time there to celebrate a friend's new job! Jeff was so nice and energetic the next time we go back we will ask for Jeff Beene's table! We loved the Happy Hour is in the bar and dinning area! The food was fantastic!!!
Thanks for a great time! We will be back with more friends!!!

Z Tejas ..... great before theater
Shrimp appetizer is delicious. Salads are fresh...cocktails are generous, not watered down and delicious. Took grandma and our 11 year old to dinner before the symphony.....everyone had a good meal. We will return

We were surprised it was Happy Hour on a Sunday evening. Our waiter was wonderful. We asked his opinion and he was honest about our choices. The street tacos are good. We were given hotter salsa when we asked. Portions are big even at happy hour.

I have Celiac Disease so finding a great restaurant where I can eat and be safe is important to me. Z'Tejas fits that bill wonderfully!
I know that the staff are well trained to keep the gluten products away from me and my food. Their Wild Mushroom Enchilada's and Salmon with vegetables are the BEST! That's why I Love Z'Tejas Southwest Grill!
