Diner Reviews
  • "Really excited from reviews to try it but it fell short for me. Mac & cheese was creamy but lacked flavor. Prime rib dip was dry. Dessert was the best we had, fruit crumble a la mode...Very tasty."

  • "Food is just okay. I would say a great place for a cocktail and appetizers before a movie. Location is nice, and the outdoor area is great. Our service was not great, may have been our server's first night. We will most likely just do cocktails next time."

  • "Asked for a quiet table and birthday surprise dessert. Were met at the door with smiles and good wishes for her B day. Food yummy and enjoyed our time there very much. And the hot fudge sundae, YUM YUM :) Will return again!"

  • "I often forget about the Zephyr when I think of a nice dinner out, but I won't anymore. Our meal was excellent and the service was delightful. Our server was absolutely lovely as well and efficient. I wanted fish for dinner and the Zephyr has a very nice variety. I chose the scallops which were amazing. I can't wait to go back and try their other selections. Of course, my husband had steak and he was very satisfied with his meal. We don't usually have dessert, but the chocolate ganache on the menu is heavenly. We can't wait to return to try other items."

  • "Had a great dinner here on Saturday night with another couple. We had our 7 month old with us, and the restaurant was very accommodating, and even put us at a corner table so the high chair was out of the way. Fried Mac N Cheese bites were crunchy, creamy and delicious. Parmesan crusted scallops were tender and cooked perfectly. Side dishes left something to be desired (rice pilaf and green beans), but were not bad. Creme brulee was fantastic and hot fudge sundae was awesome - love the extra topping options the waiter brought to the table."

  • "Staff actually read my request to get in and out in a hurry, and even though we were late they did a great job. Seating outside was far more peacful than the indoor din. The food was not awful, but not particularly good. Ordered shrimp tacos thinking the shrimp would be grilled or butter cooked or steamed...they were batter fried before being put in the tacos. Huh? The bruschetta shrimp appetizer had nice dressing and flavorful greens, but the shrimp themselves were a little stanky. c'mon guys, you are not THAT far from the ocean. Use fresh seafood! The rice was interesting. Had a nice smokey flavor that I have never had before in rice."

  • "My sister and her husband Came into Livermore for a Business meeting and called me up and ask me to pick a place to meet them for dinner. I live in Sacramento but i did a quick search on the net and after reading some reviews I chose the Zephyr Grill and Bar. I have made some bad selections before when it comes to choosing a place to eat at but Thank God that Zephyr was not one of them. I found the entire Staff from the moment we walked into the place consummate professionals. The Food was prepared and presented well and Tasted Outstanding! Great Wine selection and comfortable ambiance. Waitress Service was Very Attentive and Friendly. I would Highly Recommend Zephyr's to Any one for a Pleasant night out!"

  • "I brought my fiance and parents to our second time at Zephyr and we weren't disappointed. Service was wonderful, food was fantastic, and we got out with dessert with a second round of drinks in time to make it to the opera at the Bankhead down the road. Very nice restaurant, lovely ambiance. Everyone enjoyed themselves!"

  • "I made 5:00 reservations so that we'd be finished dining in time for 7:00 show at Bankhead theater. Specifically told waitress that we had theater tickets and had to be out by 6:30. She assured us she would have us out by then. We'll it didn't happen. I was still waiting for dessert at 6:40 when l left my dinner companions to pick up the tickets at will call. Re the food: ordered the special fried chicken.....is it always that dark brown color? Asked for all dark meat too and got a breast, leg & thigh. My dinner companions enjoyed theirs however. Ended up returning for coffee later. My wife ordered sundae and was taken aback by the size. She kept saying the wait staff should've told her how big it was. It would've served four."

  • "We have been enjoying the Zephyr for quite a few years. The food is consistently excellent with high quality meats, fresh fish, and generous portions. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. I like the ambience with rich dark wood accents and the options to sit at a table, booth or bar. This is one of my favorite local restaurants."

  • "Our Server Bless was Amazing. I would come back just to have her wait on us again. She was able to get us exactly what we wanted for our dinner, Special requests and all. The steaks were delicious and cooked well. For the price you pay for the steak dinner, you don't get much in the way of sides. I got 4 green beans and a couple pieces of fingerling potatoes. Good thing we got the mac and Cheese bites for an app. I'd rather pay more and get mashed or baked potato or buy the steak and be able to pick my sides. Over all the place had a good atmosphere. Not overly fancy and more fancy than casual. It was a great spot for our valentines dinner."

  • "This was my second time at the Zephyr -- my first visit being much better than the most recent. We went the day following Valentine's Day, with a special offer in place. The service suffered; the food was forever arriving and then we were seriously overcharged. But, yes, the food was good. I will hesitate going a third time."

  • "This was our first time eating at the Zephyr Grill. Not sure why we waited so long as the service and food was great. We were there on Valentines Day to which can be a crazy time to go out. But the table was ready the moment we arrived for our reservation. Sharon our server was fantastic to which made our visit very enjoyable. One of the managers also stopped by our table to check on us. We will go again for sure"

  • "The sea bass was outstanding, one of the best I've ever had. The calamari was prepared differently, strips instead of the more traditional rings, tender and tasty. My husband liked my sea bass over his potato-crusted halibut that came with spinach. My sea bass came with mashed taters (I asked for taters instead of rice). Could work on their cocktails, had the Zephyrini, it was nondescript....if your resturant has a namesake cocktail it should be the best of what you offer, in my opinion. Again, get the sea bass it is excellent - right size portion, fresh, seared just right, moist, eats as tho it were a steak. They promote local wines too, like that as well."

  • "My husband and I decided to do an early Valentine's dinner, so drove the 20 miles from home to Livermore for a wine club event at Wente Vineyards and then dinner at Zephyr Grill. Great meal, friendly service, and a free dessert. We'll be back soon!"

  • "Found this place by using the "nearby" search option on Google Maps. Menu offered a variety of choices. Drinks were excellent. Food was delicious. Service was perfect. The manager cleared our table and asked us how everything was. All around excellent experience. Would definitely eat there again when I'm in town (I'm from Oakland) ."

  • "the greeting was less than spectacular. We had a 6:30 reservation and the hostess immediately jumped on me when checking in and said it was for 6:00 but she held a table for us. I showed her my phone with the email from Open Table which clearly stated 6:30 but she could have cared less. The food was mediocre and we've eaten here a number of times. I ordered the shrimp tacos and as I got to the last taco there was something on top of it (food) that didn't go with the plate. It looked like a piece of ginger or potato or something. I didn't eat the last taco. When she came back to clear the table, I showed it to her. She said it looked like a piece of turkey, laughed and walked off. Don't think I'll be back."

  • "Strong recommendation. Have dinner and then head next door to the Vine Cinema for a nice art film experience. You can also get a limited Zephyr menu IN the theater. I haven't tried that yet, but really enjoyed my meal at the restaurant. The waitress was helpful with my vegan diet, and they served an outstanding pasta primavera. My companion also loved her meatloaf. I'm often in San Ramon for business, and will absolutely make my way to Zephyr again the next time I'm in town!"

  • "flummoxed by their 'happy hour' policy/seating. This time, food was good, service excellent (except for the delay in food coming from the kitchen). It wasn't even crowded for a Saturday lunch, but the Lounge area - where the discounted prices are!-had music level too high. Really? It's not a rockin' place on Sat. afternoon, but too noisy! Made conversation with the girls a bit strained. Ahi Tuna was great. Much cheaper on one side of the booths than the other. Such a weird policy."

  • "The food was only okay, but I think other items on the menu would be better. The service was very slow. It took about a half hour to get our entrees. We were seated in an area of the restaurant that isn't as "attractive" as the main area. I would give them another try."

  • "I was disappointed by the service and food. The server who brought out the appitizers allowed some of the appitizer to roll off the plate. He apologized and said he would bring some more but did not. The waiter was unattentive and left us sitting without beverage refills for 20-30 minutes. He did not offer coffee with dessert, which wasn't a big deal, however, he disappeared for the next 20-30 minutes and we were unable to order the coffee that we wanted. After ordering, the food took about 30 minutes to come out of the the kitchen. I'm my previous experiences at Zephyr's, the food it out in about 15 minutes. Lastly, I decided to order the porkchop which the waiter told me would not be dry, but it was. It was a disappointing experience."

  • "We went to Zephyr's before going wine tasting at local wineries. The food and service were excellent. Nice menu with a variety of choices. Server was helpful in making lunch selections. Service was very attentive throughout the meal. The potato wrapped halibut and ahi tuna burger were great choices. We will definitely return.c"

  • "When I say good for groups, I mean no more than 10. We went for a birthday, started with a great happy hour pricing and selection of good beer on tap, small amount of choices, but good ones. Be sure to clarify what's on happy hour pricing thought, they don't share with you. Hostess and servers always are nice, that's why I keep returning. Food is just okay, nothing to brag about, but also, not so bad that I won't return. Pricing is a bit high for the quality. Again, not so bad that it doesn't make me want to return. It's an overall good ADULT restaurant. You will definitely notice the evening is a generation of majority over 40."

  • "While a bit pricey, the food was very tasty and the service was excellent. The lighting and decor were appropriate for a nice dinner with family. The noise level was not overwhelming, and our family of 5 could easily carry on an engaging discussion. The menu was broad enough in its offerings to appeal to a wide range of tastes. We will definitely be back for a special occasion."

  • "We went there for my mom birthday. The service was excellent. The menu is diversified to please anyone. It goes from burgers/sandwiches to sophisticated fishes or meat. Good choices of wine and cocktails. Nice decor. A very nice place to eat lunch or dinner in Livermore. I would recommend the place for families at lunch time and couples for dinner."

  • "My In-Laws have been to Zephyr's once before & they were happy with the food & service which is why we came back again for my mother in laws birthday. All in all, the lunch was okay but for the price, not okay. Our waitress seemed very confused, we ordered an appetizer that we never received, we requested more bread that took a good 20 minutes to get because, like the appetizer, I think she forgot. The food was so-so, my beef/vege soup was very fatty, oily & tasteless & my sandwich that I asked for with no mayonnaise came with mayonnaise. My husband and sister in law ordered the same meal however they came out looking like 2 completely different meals. Like I said, it was okay, but I have had much better food & service for the price."
