Diner Reviews
  • "Great dining experience. The food was delicious. Medium to high priced but good portions. I had the special - a black linguini with a light red diablo sauce, calamari, scallops, mussels, clams and lobster. Very good! Our table shared the house salad, bacon wrapped dates, carpaccio and tostones appetizers. All good! Service was attentive and waiter informative. Lovely ambience. Would definitely go back. Zielo was an excellent find! All in our group of 7 enjoyed the food and experience at Zielo."

  • "Great atmosphere. Even though they are now undergoing a Groupon crisis (beware: they are no longer accepting vouchers purchased), we stayed since we were hyped about the place. Ossobuco (Braised veal shank served over truffle essence of forest mushroom risotto) was DELICIOUS and I loved the short rib dumplings. Pico our waiter was phenomenal, and hilarious."

  • "I really enjoyed the food! We had the short ribs dumpling which were absolutely delicious. We had the osobucco w risotto and the short ribs with Pasta both were incredible. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because our food took a really long time yet others who had gotten there after us received their food. They probably messed up or forgot to add the order. Definitely will come back!"

  • "We truly enjoyed my birthday dinner at Zielo Restaurant in Coral Gables. It was a beautiful, cozy environment with grand chandeliers, crisp white table cloths,and touches of cobalt blue. Our waiter was very patient and attentive as we decided what to order. We loved everything we ate from the mixed green salads with pears, short rib dumplings, seafood and squid pasta (my friend's main course), home made fettuccine, with oxtail ragu (my first time eating oxtail), to the bread pudding for dessert. They decorated my bread pudding with birthday wishes and sang happy birthday. I highly recommend this restaurant. What had a lovely dining experience and will definitely go again."

  • "I was undecided about a restaurant to take my daughter for her 15th bday dinner and while skimming through Groupon found a one for Zielo. It was a great deal so we decided to go.The place is gorgeous with white & blue colors & chandeliers within. Classy setting. The food was amazing! i had the Sea Bass with Risotto that was delicious and overall the entire party of 9 loved their food. i do have to say the waiter was a little confusing to understand and maybe was not equipped to handle a party of 9, also the service was slow and he kept forgetting items we would order like our drinks.Overall we had a great experience. Personally i think the place is better for romantic dining or with a small party. It got really loud with our party"

  • "I spend my little free time booking and going to this restaurant and I never got any notification that it was closed that day. Unbelievable, but true. I'm still shocked nobody call me or text apologizing about the inconvenience and now I have a survey to fill it out about a place I couldn't enjoy on an important night for me and my wife"

  • "First time dining here, probably the last as well. I had to wait quite a long time to have my wine opened and poured while waiters stood around in groups chatting in Spanish. We noticed what appeared to be regulars getting much more attentive service from wait staff. Food was innovative and quite good, but overall, I was not impressed. Lack of good service ruined what could have been a nice dining experience."

  • "The Zielo Restaurant has a mixed decoration scheme. There is a nice dinning room in front and a sports bar with large plasma TV's over the bar in back. The food is good, the service was surprisingly poor. When we arrived the restaurant was not crowded but we were seated in the aisle and had to ask to move out of traffic. The waiter showed up and handed us a folded piece of paper with specials, instead of reciting the specials to us, interesting. I was served a $40.00 bottle of wine with a twist off cap, nice. But to top off the service the waiter kept reaching across my wife. I can only suspect zero training of the wait staff. And the manager was too busy to greet his guests, must be nice to be so important."

  • "I took my girlfriend to Zielo for Valentine's. The restaurant is beautiful inside the atmosphere is the perfect there was even a singer there who also serenaded us. The food was very good. I highly recommend the crab cakes those were absolutely fantastic. A great overall experience my girlfriend and I would definitely return."

  • "The BEST meal we've ever had. I literall could not take the smile off my face when the steaks came out. The appetizers were also very well presented and tasted amazing! The waiters were very busy and a little absent but I think that was because it was around valentines day. I highly recommend the food here, you will not be disaapointed!"

  • "We live about 1 and a half hours away. We were seated quickly the Restaurant is lovley and spacious. The Rack of Lamb was exceptional and the Ravioli was as flavorful as any we have ever tasted. They seemed short handed the night we were there and by 8:30 PM the restaurant was almost full. We will go back. 3 to 4 $ for prices the Lamb was $34.00."

  • "My experience started with valet who was slow & I didn't even understand if he said hello. Upon entering, the hostess was delightful, friendly and offered options for seating. Unfortunately it was freezing due to the AC setting & moved a couple times to get out from under the vent-I didn't have a jacket since it was 80+ outside! My waiter was less than helpful & sort of rude to start although he warmed a bit over time. Wine selections by the glass are poor (really poor) but the food was truly very nice. The manager/owner (?) walked around & it felt a bit mafia-like. As I left, he & others were blocking the door & complaining about a not-paid check-they were looking for them while complaining. A fitting end to an odd experience."

  • "Although there was a funny smell at the entrance of the restaurant, which we pointed out to the hostess upon arrival, the food was excellent, the service very friendly and courteous. My 6-year old son said that the meat I ordered was "the best meat he had ever tried", and ate half of my portion from the plate. That is a statement, especially coming from a kid that is hard to convince to try food different from what he is accustomed to. Overall two thumbs up."

The good was amazing as I had the ozobucco with risotto (highly recommend it)...... The restaurant was very nicely decorated with live music in the other room.

  • "My husband and I arrived for our reservation on time but had to wait about 15 minutes to be sat at our table. I ordered the beef carpaccio, which had parts that tasted oddly fishy. My husband ordered the tuna tostone which he loved, the crepe and lobster which he did not like and the lobster bisque which he thought was fair. I had the osso bucco with goat cheese risotto ( I had asked them to replace the mushroom risotto). Both the veal shank and risotto were cooked perfectly. The actual restaurant was beautiful and fairly priced."
