Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was great, service, scene and staff . . but the food was only fair and we expected more. The menu looked and sounded great, but the two items we tasted were only so, so. I did notice an elderly crowd, not sure if the food was a bit bland for that reason, but the best critic is you, so check it out yourself. Too many other choices that deliver on taste."

  • "As usual, the three of us who try to dine out monthly, had a great food experience, but service was a bit "sloppy." Asked twice for butter and finally had to stop a passing busboy to get some. Although the third member of out party was late, seems we were a but pushed to order quickly."

  • "We went for dinner and each of had the Z Fillet which was great. Great service. When we asked if salad could be substituted for the potatoes we received a very nice small salad, no extra charge. We eat there often and always get a great meal."

  • "Recently did a small birthday celebration and was very pleased with all aspects if the experience. Delicious perfectly prepared food! The filet was to due for and being a Big Morton's The Steakhouse fan everyone at the table was shocked when I said the filet at Zinfandel Grille was far better. Extremely tender and fantastic flavor.. Can't wait to come back and find again."

  • "Atmosphere was good for my business lunch. I got the Ruben and it was really good, not too heavy. I would have appreciated being checked on after the bill was paid, filling up waters, etc."

  • "Service: OUTSTANDING, Food: SUPER OUTSTANDING... By far, Zinfandel Grille is mine and Michael's favorite restaurant. Doesn't matter if we're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just want to grab dinner at the bar and listen to jazz on a Friday night, Zinfandel Grille has our vote. We always know that no matter what we have, the quality will be there. This is our place, every server is trained for exceptional service, and they make you feel welcomed from the time you walk through the door. Can't think of a better place to have fun and just enjoy an evening out."

  • "returned to use birthday coupon and, as always, met with great service and predictably very good food with interesting choices of special menu items..will return on a regular basis. comfortable setting if a bit noisy near the bar. Occasionally have music from group that seems to be a generation or two behind on selections but that does not detract from the enjoyable experience at the restaurant"

  • "Great place for after B Street. Everyone's food was great although the current version of the pork chop was not as good as previous versions. Good service."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We had a fine dinner, good service, and a nice glass of wine. I thought the wine list was okay but overpriced for what they offered. For instance, a bottle of 7 Deadly zins was over $30, and that wine is available at Costco for under $10, and it is just an okay wine, not great. I had a Sangiovese for $10/glass, and it was just okay. Other than the wine, it was more than satisfactory, and yes, we would return, but we'd bring our own bottle."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We dine here quite frequently and have always enjoyed the food but unfortunately our last dinner was very disappointing. I had the linguini which had absolutely no flavor in the sauce and the shrimp was like rubber. My wife had the special which had a small piece of Halibut and a lot of mash potatoes. We love this restaurant but we will stick with the meatloaf or mustard chicken."

  • "My 94 year old mother and I love to come to Zinfandels. We used to get a salad and pizza to split but we had recently started getting the crab salad every time. This time we decided to try something new. My mom got the burger and loved it. I got crab cakes and was really disappointed. They were tiny and not very good. We will always come back, because the wine is good and the wait staff is great, but I will go back to the crab salad or pizza."

We were greeted warmly and seated at an ideal table. Service was excellent. Menu had many lunch options. Food was tasty. Gracious manager stopped by to inquire about our meal. In addition to the large bowl of chocolate mints near the door, the energetic hostess opened the door for us to exit and thanked us for coming. We will definitely be returning."

  • "I booked a table for four for a business meeting and even though it was Mother's Day and we did have a short wait, our waitress was lovely, attentive but not intrusive and the food was delicious. This is the first time I dined at this location though I have eaten at two other Zinfandel Grills and will return again because the food and service are consistently good."

  • "I took my wife and daughter there for a Mother's Day brunch. Actually, this is the second time we done this brunch in the last three years. Each time the food good and plenty and the staff is very good at keeping you comfortable. I would recommend a reservation and one that is not in the middle of eatting shifts. We had a 12:15pm time and only waited about 5 minutes for our table, however, people in front of us had a 11:45am reservation and were just being seated when we got there around 12:10. Otherwise, I would say this is great place to take your loved ones for a special occassion."
