Zebra's Bistro and Wine Bar
anniversary dinnerWe recently went to Zebra's to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary. We had trouble picking just one appetizer and really wanted desserts ... so we ended up skipping entrees. We ordered a selection of cheese, shrimp cerviche, and marinated olives (horribly addictive!). For dessert we got the ice cream sandwich sunday and the chocolate mousse terrine (we had trouble deciding which was better). Our server, Justine, was great! She paced the food perfectly so we got to enjoy a relaxing meal. With the check, Justine also brought a plate with "Happy Anniversary" written in fruit puree and two little bites of caramel covered rice crispy squares. It was a lovely and memorable touch!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great timeParty of six on a Monday night ($1 Oyster night).
Food and service were excellent.
Liked the unusual menu with big plates and small plates and the ability to mix them up.
Lots of interesting dishes.
Definitely "fit for foodies".6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA neighborhood gemOur overall experience at Zebras was

local farms fresh daily! Great comfortable
atmosphere with excellent staff!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMZebra'sI have been to Zebra's several times. My wife and I enjoy the entire dining experience. Food is always prepared well and pleasing to the eye. I would have given the food 5 stars if my short ribs were not a little dry. Could have used a little bit more moisture. I recommend Zebra's lounge area. It is a pleasant place to have something to drink prior (or after) your meal.
Overall a great dining experience!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfine dining in MedfieldWonderful atmosphere, great service, interesting menu. We shared a special three part appetizer with pate, duck pastrami and more. Beautifully presented, delicious, and the highlight of the meal. A blackened salmon with risotto was generous in portion and excellent. A hanger steak was good, but not special. All were nicely presented. A chocolate desert was excellent.
We will return, probably ask the waiter for specific recommendations and the food sometimes soars, but occasionally coasts.
Pricey but overall worth it.
Did not sit in the lounge, bar, but it appeared very inviting, relaxed, comfortable.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Zebras. My husband andLove Zebras. My husband and I wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary and chose to return here. We have never had a bad meal! Friendly service, good ambiance. I had the scallops and my husband had the shrimp scampi. Both delicious and cooked to perfection! We also enjoyed the pork belly wontons as an appetizer, delicious!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Metro West!Zebra's is a little gem in Medfield where you will find food and atmosphere rivaling the best bistros in Boston. The menu is fresh and innovative without being overly fussy. Our table started off with two "snacks" the pork belly wontons and truffle fries - which were so delicious and really made us look forward to the rest of dinner. My arugula salad was simple and crisp and the shaved asparagus added a surprising nutty flavor. The spring vegetable risotto was exactly what I had been craving and my friends all enjoyed their entrees as well - scallops, blackened salmon and the lamb ragout. The prices are a little high but the quality of food justifies it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food great serviceService was great as always! Loved the bar feel before moving to our table. However while the food was still really good and everyone finished their plates, the food wasn't as amazing as it has been the past few visits. Also disappointed to learn the sushi menu is no longer offered, which was one of the things I talked up to others when I suggested Zebra's.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and Friendly Staff.Great food and Friendly Staff. Terrific neighborhood Resturant5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchI took my wife and daughter along with our one month old grandson to the restaurant for a Mother's Day Brunch. It was really great! This was our first time at Zebra's and we were quite impressed. The food, the service and the atmosphere was perfect for a holiday celebration. They had a price fixe menu for $28/per person, you could choose two items and both sections of the menu had at least (10) items from which we could choose for our brunch. I had the oysters first, then a frittatta, my wife had a cheese board to start and the salmon. Everything was made fresh and it was delicious, the service was attentive, but not intrusive and anything that we may have needed was there in seconds. Perfect for a romantic dinner or business lunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised at zebra'sWe live in medfield and haven't been in about 5 years for a sit-down dinner/date night. We were so surprised. Menu has changed and it was fantastic. I had the scallops and my husband had the rabbit pasta dish. We also had three appetizers that were great! I suggest giving it a try! Service was a little slow, so don't go if you are in a rush....5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have enjoyed Zebra's forWe have enjoyed Zebra's for several years, and regard it as a special treat.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot outside of BostonThe food is Boston caliber, at suburban prices.
With the focus on sustainable local farmers, the ingredients are always fresh and flavorful.
The vegetarian options are varied and tasty!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very good meal, itWe had a very good meal, it is a varied menu. The chef changed one of the sides that had an ingredient that could not be eaten by my husband. Service was great. We didn't sit at the bar but it looks quite comfortable and has a good bar menu. We will go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastcThe only bad thing to say about this meal is that it was too long since last time we ate there. The entire meal was excellent and very impressed that for such excellent food, they didn't soak it to you on the check. I ate a half order of a pasta dish for an appetizer - made with lamb - fantastic. This can be tough for a restaurant as they set the bar early in the dinner but everything else was equally as good, even the dessert. Wish I could remember everything we ate but it was a few weeks ago. Also, we had a great waitress and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. We will be back soon. Highly recommend.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner at Zebra's forWe had dinner at Zebra's for my husband's birthday (a special occasion; we don't go there more than once a year typically). The food was still fabulous since the last time we were there -- lots of great flavors and nice touches. My husband said "the chef really seems to know what he's doing", referring to the balance of flavors and how delicious everything was. He had the scallops and I had the braised beef. The mixed green salad with spiced seeds and nuts was extra special, too.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks to Zebras for beingThanks to Zebras for being a fancy restaurant that is accomidating to young children. We had a very nice experience there and the food was very good. Especially liked the short rib wontons.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood special occasion restaurantWe went to Zebra's to celebrate my husband's birthday with another couple. My husband had the oysters for an appetizer and thought they were great. I had the chicken liver pate and thought it was very good, although I personally would rather my toast tips be a little less crunchy. For dinner, we had scallops and short ribs. Everyone liked their meals although the men did make a couple of comments about the portions not being very big. My friend and I shared the white wine taster - six 2 oz glasses of white wines from their menu. We both enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to others as the cost really wasn't more than ordering a good glass of wine! Overall the food and the service was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I haveOne of the best meals I have had since we moved out to the suburbs.

The roast lamb was over cooked and dry. On the other hand, the salads and short ribs were superb. We told our waitress of the lamb.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are Zebra's regulars, butWe are Zebra's regulars, but this was our first time with the new menu. We tried two charcuterie selections (Pig's Head and the duck), both of which were terrific. The featured wine was a new bottle for us, and it exceeded expectations. Very good at its price point. As always, the drinks were spot-on. Our entrees were just the right size and delicious. The cookie ice cream sandwich was out of this world. We are lucky not to have to go far for fine dining in Medfield.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here so manyWe have eaten here so many times and never had a bad meal.

The restaurant was not too busy on Sunday night which suited us just fine. Our server made some wine suggestions which proved to be right on the mark. My wife enjoyed her Scallops entree and although my hanger steak was practically cold when first brought out, the kitchen redid it and the second time it was warm and very enjoyable.

We were seated right on time on a busy Saturday night and sat at our great table for hours without any pressure. We all liked our food very much. I love mussels which were very good here, but feature French fries so I will not be ordering that dish again as I am not a fan of fries and they dominate the dish. However, the spacing was excellent. Main course dishes were great, and everyone else liked their apps. We also had a great bottle of Iatalian wine to celebrate.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
