  • "My husband and I went to Zebra when it first opened. The food was very good then and it still is. It is a restaurant that I would go to on a special occaion. I love that fact that their servings portions are perfect!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014

    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The dollar oysters on Monday evenings and our delightful server were the highlights of our dinner. There is no doubt that Zebra's only uses the highest quality foods available, but the menu was terribly uninspiring. We struggled to find an entree and ended up ordering an $18 hamburger and the chicken. Perhaps we're just not "foodie" enough for this establishment?"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "A wonderful find for excellent dining in local area. Chicken and steak dish both outstanding. Honey's chocolate cake fantastic!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I have been to Zebra's many times and it never fails to be a wonderful dining experience with superb food, attentive waitstaff and a willingness to answer any questions about the menu. I always recommend to colleagues and friends."

  • "We come here a lot. Food and service are almost always very good ! Have had very few subpar experiences over the years"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Order the steak tartar because it will change your life! And then order a glass of the Darcie Kent!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Very good food--especially the burger!--and the key to having a quiet meal is to dine on their patio!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Been coming here since it opened - usually saving this for for special occasions. We were very disappointed with the menu selections and settled for a burger for our anniversary. Why? We don't eat soft shell crab, oysters, or lamb which is limiting, we know. However, this has never been a problem before. The kale and Romaine Caesar salad was delicious and the burger just ordinary. We mentioned it was our anniversary and were treated with a treat from the kitchen of 3 raspberries and 2 bites of Rice Krispy's-like treats. Very odd. Not sure we'll come for the next birthday."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Went to Zebra's for a birthday celebration, and what a fine choice it was! The chef continues his high quality of design and food prep, making this restaurant a reliable choice for an excellent culinary experience. Service was also quite fine - warm and professional. Only small complaint is that the outdoor chairs (which are comfortable by themselves) are a bit low to the tables. But it is nice to have an al fresco option during nice weather. Thanks!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My wife and I had a dinner at Zebra's last weekend. The hostess greeted us with a positive demeanor with compliments for my wife's attire. (Great way to start the dining experience.) We had a reservation, and the table was ready as soon as we asked to be seated. The service staff was knowledgable, friendly and attentive to our requests. We had a couple of questions about the menu, and the answers provided were accurate and guided us to delicious meal decisions. I enjoyed the yellowfin tuna poke as a starter, and we both had delicious entrees (the roasted chicken was very good). I highly recommend Zebra's for a nice, dinner as a couple or with other friends. We will be back soon."

  • "Staff was friendly, food very good, ambiance very good, service excellent. Great place for a long and relaxing dinner if you choose."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We arrived on time for dinner and were seated immediately. The restaurant discontinued their sushi menu since I had last visited. The main menu has interesting choices, but I felt offered too few. There was only a single entree offered as a special. But the meals selected were nicely prepared and garnished with interesting vegetables. Overall, the food was good, the service excellent, and the evening enjoyable. The surprise birthday dessert was a nice touch."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I had been to Zebras previously, as a relative lives in the area. This time, the service was only so-so. We waited 10 minutes for a wait person to ask us if we wanted a drink to start (plus he called me darling, which I found offensive). I ordered the special, which was already gone (it was only 7:30 pm) so I ordered a different dish, which was good, but not what I wanted. My relative had to send her dish back to the kitchen, as it tasted "off." All in all - not a great night at Zebras. I will not be in a hurry to return there. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Had a great dinner there with excellent service and great ambience. ....very quiet. We will definitely return to try other things from the menu and dine outside on the terrace. The bar is a comfortable, cozy spot for a drink too."

  • "Positives 1) had seating on time 2) service was excellent Negitives 1) not a great menu selection 2) oysters were small 3) overall food was fair "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My wife and I have become regulars at Zebra, as we dine there at least once a month. Every time I order something new. Their menu is relatively short, which means that the chef really focuses on the few dishes offered and the night's specials. And it changes frequently, with the change of season, so that for us, even being regulars, there's always something new and extraordinary to discover. I had veal shank marrow, deliciously served with red onion, sea salt and garlic bruschetta. And rabbit ragout on home made fettucine. My wife had a risotto with salmon. The execution was perfect. The taste was incredible. The service is outstanding. Impeccable. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Dined with Mother-in-law and two kids (5 and 18mo). Nice brunch selections. Definitely enjoyed the special Mimosa offerings. Would have liked one or two additional "kid" friendly options (they both ended up with french toast) - there were MANY children eating during the 12:30 seating, but the meal was good. Server was pleasant. Will be back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My wife and I have had dinner several times over the last few years. As usual Zebra's served a great brunch with several options to pick from. The food was served hot and all meals arrived at the same time. There were 9 of us for brunch. Everyone enjoyed their food. The service was excellent! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "A bit let down by recent brunch experience. With it being Mother's Day (mostly families dining) was hoping for a specific kids offering (both in price and food). On the 2 courses offered in the price fix. Steak and eggs (sunny side) did not include toast. Service staff was more focused on turning and prepping tables than table-side manners."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Zebra's is the best. The food is awesome and the staff is friendly and attentive - often anticipating my requests before I have even formulated the thoughts! Now that's service!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Fabulous and elegant, I loved that the chef sent out a sample salmon appetizer. Rolls were delicious, I'd like to see olive oil instead of butter. Desserts from honeys bakery fabulous! Salmon was cooked perfectly and was delicious. "

  • "We really enjoyed it. Food was good, different. Service was excellent. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The food, service and atmosphere were above what my friend and I had expected. My only less favorable comment was that the decaf coffee was rather tasteless. Zebra could win in a competition with several well known Boston restaurants."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Too bad Zebra's only does brunch twice a year as they really do a wonderful job. Both my wife and I very much enjoyed the 2 course prix fixe brunch. It had everything we've come to expect from Zebra's; great service, well crafted cocktails, amazing flavor, and beautiful plating. Keep up the good work!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "My husband had the lamb ragu and I had a fish dish that was had a nice sauce and accompanying vegetables. I'm not sure I would ever select a pig head (a menu item) for dinner. And a rhubarb soup for desert was strange too. The were 2 chocolate deserts; not my fave."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our birthday celebratory meal was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Our waiter was also very attentive, regularly checking up on us and refilling the water glasses. The menu has a French flair. The Oysters on the half shell and chilled shrimp were very tasty. My wife had the Atlantic Pollock special and I had the Bauvette steak frites, both wonderful. We ended our meal with a flourless chocolate cake topped with an interesting beet sorbet and raspberry compote. We are also members of the Zebra's reward program for frequent diners and highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We live Medfield and on the rare occasion we can have a night out, we always debate new places to try, but 90% of the time we end up at Zebra's. Our most recent meal reminded us why we do. The staff is first-rate, very knowledgeable abotu the menu. Joe, our waiter, is at the top of his game and his recommendations always satisfy. The appetizers are the perfect size, delicious but not too filling. The wine list is deep and has quality options at every price point. The only downside is that we did not have room for dessert. Great food, great people and a great atmosphere. We don't have to drive far to get there, but would happily do so if we lived further away."

  • "This restaurant had a nice atmosphere the crowd was good looking. We were greeted by the hostess very cordually & positiveOur table was ready on time! We both had a glass of wine to start. Had the mussels they were plump,meaty & the juice was delicious dipping bread. My wife had 6 oysters that were average good. The waitress was very informative & helpful in the menu entrees. My wife had the trout It was she really enjoyed it. I had the short ribs & they melted in my mouth, asparagus & this great tasting mash potatoes on the bottom. We split this chocolate fudge cake with raspberry sauce & fresh mushed raspberries that was to die for! The only mistake was we should of both got onel We were fighting over it. I would go back in a heartbeat!"

  • "We went for restaurant week. The food was excellent although they had run out if several of he options available for the pre-fix menu. There were orher great choices available. The pickles on the appy menu were different and very tasty. The flourless chocolate cake was to die for. Loved the lamb ragu. Will definately go back."
