Take a friend to lunchI have taken friends to lunch at Zebra six times in the past 6 months and have had no complaints about the restaurant. Everyone has loved the food and ambiance.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerThe food was fantastic and a nice change from the restaurants we usually go to. My husband and I both agreed we'd definitely return to this restaurant.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful lunch!Took my husband for his first time there. The lunch was unbelieveable. He raved over the salad! I loved the goat cheese potatoes. Definitely returning there. The owner of the restaurant stopped by for a nice conversation as well.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe have been in Charlotte since 2000 and this was our first time. I am truly sorry that it took us so long to come here because this was hands down the BEST meal that I've had since moving to the area. We are already planning our return visit!
For starters, they have a wine from a vineyard in South Africa that we've been to and it is a fantastic drink. The foie gras here is second only to one that I've had in a small village in France. And the Sauternes was beyond words. I had the lamb tenderloin diablo and my wife had the swordfish, which happened to be caught the night before. By far and way, the meal was fantastic. However, the staff here is amazing. They are very personable, knowledgeable and add to the experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMZebra reviewService was great, food was wonderful. portions are very small for the price that is charged. the staff is great5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWe went there for my parents' anniversary. I noted the anniversary when I made the reservation online and they greeted us by wishing them a happy anniversary and bringing us champagne! Everything was excellent and they were so attentive. Wonderful experience5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!This is the kind of restaurant where you know they'll take care of you. I went with my boyfriend for our anniversary and the staff, food, and atmosphere were incredible! Our waiter, Joeseph, went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. He checked up on us, but not in an overbearing way. The only hiccup in the service was when my boyfriend didn't get enough soup (they pour it at your table). The backwaiter promised to get him more, but the guy never returned. But other than that, it was wonderful!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was outstandingEverything was outstanding from beginning to end. We were celebrating our anniversary and the manager brought us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. The waitress was lovely and had great recommendations. We started with the lobster bisque, scallops, and oysters and all were very delicious. Our entrees were the lamb diablo which my husband loved, and I had the swordfish, also very delicious. We finished with the chocolate molten cake which was to die for. The service was excellent and the dining was leisurely. We had a wonderful evening.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceI am a big food and wine person and appreciate top service. This restaurant had everything you could ask for. Each course was spaced perfectly and served with perfection. I went here for my 5th anniversary with my wife and the entire experience was outstanding. Each course was prepared and presented perfectly and was delicious. Some abstract combinations like apple tart and goat cheese ice cream was to die for. Although it is very expensive I highly suggest that anyone with a love for food must go frequent this restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as alwaysFoie gras was good, best salmon I have ever eaten,(salmon wrapped in potato strings) and lemon curd tart for dessert. Best wine selection in the state without a doubt. Staff remembered our last visit. No detail is overlooked.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were celebratingMy wife and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, and this was the perfect place. Dinner was fantastic and the service was great.
We will definitely go back again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. We askedFood was outstanding. We asked for a cheese plate as the appetizer which was not on the menu. They made one for us and it was amazing......top three we have ever had. The Souffle is amazing....Get it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMZebra? Certainly.Being greeted by name as we entered was a pleasant surprise. Isaac, or server, was knowledgeable, friendly, and seemed to know when to appear. His wine suggestions were "on the mark". The menu is eclectic. Our selections of duck and baked halibut (that night's special) were flavorful and perfectly prepared. A chocolate soufflé and cappuccinos finished everything off with just the right touch. We will return.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Dining from A to Zebra.We were celebrating my partners's Birthday, and the staff at Zebra went all out to make it an outstanding evening. Two glasses of Prosecco were waiting on the table for us, as we were being seated...and the evening just got better and better after that. Our food, the wine, the impeccable service, and the beautiful Birthday dessert they served her, all worked in harmony to make her feel very special.

This experience was no different.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCuisine and attentive serviceCuisine and attentive service was superb. However, we were thoroughly perplexed as to why my one Old Fashioned cocktail was priced exorbitantly at $22!

We have used their catering services several times in the past for guest numbers 40+. The owner is an absolutely wonderful personand never hesitates to assist in creating a pleasant atmosphere at the restaurant. The food is excellent, always well prepared and served by a wonderful wait staff. Do not miss an opportunity to try this restaurant - you will be gald you did and wonder why it took so long to begin to enjoy this experience - regularly. Recommended without any hesitancy. If you want to create special memories and want a special place to celebrate cherished moments don't hesitate to enjoy. On a scale of 1-10, it's clearly a 15!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently deliciousThis was my fourth lunch at Zebra and every visit has been lovely with great food and service. I am impressed with the consistency of the food. The ambiance is perfect for quiet discussions but is not stuffy or pretentious. The waiter does not rush the meal but if we had been on a lunch break we would have had plenty of time to eat as the food is served promptly and nice and hot. Martinis were mixed perfectly. Wine pours were sufficient. The dessert souffle looked excellent at other tables but I have not tried it personally.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but expensive. NotGood food but expensive. Not sure the food merited the prices.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
