Best food in St. PeteInnovative, delicious food. The stand-by's like Dr. Pepper ribs and those fab deviled eggs are amazing but so are the specials. Anything you order will blow you away!! Zac is a true talent...thank you for being in St. Pete.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMZ Grille is now on our listZ Grille is now on our list of local favorites. We enjoyed dining outside with great food and excellent service. Inside sounded like it could get noisy as noted in other reviews.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had heard about Z GrilleWe had heard about Z Grille from coworkers and everything they told us was right on the money. Great appetizers, fantastic salads and serious entrees. Upscale without going over the top.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, people, and foodZ-grille is our favorite place for the special occasions. The restaurant has a very modern and clean style. The food is excellent and some unique dishes that you can't get anywhere else. My recommendation is for the Dr Pepper Ribs. The people are very friendly and professional, super service. The owners are in the house which I am sure keep up the quality of everything.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!First thing you have to say is it is noisy. Everything including the table tops are solid reflective surfaces. That being said, the experience was wonderful. I can't say that I have had such an eclectic, far-reaching menu anywhere else in FL. The menu seems to be New-Southern and Asian focused. Would YOU think those two go together? Well it works.There are very strong flavours, like truffle oil on a arugula salad - and sage in the chicken. It demonstrates that the chef knows what he and his clientele like and want to experience. Nothing wimpy about this place! i The service was outstanding and the server was a real person with opinions - which I love! I think the best way to experience the ZGrille is to bring a couple of people.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCOME HUNGRY!!!The food at this restaurant is absolutely the BEST in Tampa Bay. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. I would like to recommend one dish as a "Must Have"... but I wouldn't be able to choose. You do have to have the deviled eggs and Dr. Pepper ribs though. I know, how good could a Deviled Egg be right??... Try them!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMZ Grille. A Very Special RestaurantIt's rare to find a place where while you're having dinner you say to yourself, "I have to come back tomorrow". I got that feeling at Z Grille. Cudos to the chef/owner (you see him front and center in his baseball cap) and his lovely wife (you see her at the front door greeting/seating guests. This place is very special. The space is very modern.. with a food bar in front of the open kitchen to the left as you walk in and a nice dining room to the right... all one big room. The menu is not huge, but it seems that everything on it was thought out to be the best it can be. Everything we had was amazing, just perfect. Everything I saw on other tables looked fantastic as well. Yes, I did go back the next day.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and wine. AWonderful food and wine. A little noisy but not a surprise since we dine there often. Great bar for drinking and dining when you forget to make reservations.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI picked Z Grill because itI picked Z Grill because it was close to my hotel. If I find myself back in the Tampa/St. Pete area I would make a specific trip just to have a meal at Z Grill. It is a great casual place. Specialty of the house - deviled eggs; I didn't have any, but my colleague loved his. I had the "WTF French Fries. Now I usually use fries as a means to deliver ketchup to my mouth. These WTF Fries were not served with ketchup and did not need ketchup - outstanding. For dinner I had the fried chicken. But not just any fried chicken! It was coated with corn flakes and served over a waffle and grits. There was also some maple flavor in the sauce. Wow! Excellent!
Z Grill is a great place to "come as you are" and the flavors will blow you away.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!This was our first time at this restaurant. While we waited 10 minutes for a server to address us, Marcus (sp?) came by our table and advised us that he would "pinch-hit" and help us out for the evening. He provided us with excellent service and the food was outstanding. We will be back.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
