A word from Z's Oyster Bar & Steakhouse - Downtown
Our steaks are selected from Prime mid-western aged beef, hand cut and cooked to order.
Our seafood is purchased directly from "Day boat fishermen", prepared simply and cooked to perfection. Oyster lovers can select the best oysters available, from the North West. Don’t call for seafood specials for the evening prior to 4:00 p.m....Chef is still at the airport...we just don't know, yet! Z's Oyster Bar and Steakhouse also features a Wine Spectator award winning wine list with over 600 different selections. Relax, and enjoy our award winning food, wine, and service. We look forward to seeing you soon.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Frequent Z's - Downtown This was near the worst experience that I had at the Downtown Location. The food was good, but the service lacking a bit. I truly prefer the East end location and have never been disappointed there. This can be as great as the East End location, but they need to focus on making it a similar as possible, instead of having some things different."

  • "I went with a group of four to this restaurant. The food was great, but we had James as our service captain, and we all felt he left something to be desired. He was inattentive and to be honest, a little bit rude. Everyone in our party thought for a meal that we spent nearly $500 on, that the service would have been a bit better. As far as the food goes, it was great. We had everything from the Veal porterhouse, filet, crab cakes, and dover sole and for our entrees. While all were great, the Dover Sole was out of this world. Our appetizers/sides were delicious as well. Overall we'd definitely go back for the food, with the hopes that the service would be a bit better."

  • "Z's is great spot for a business lunch. The food and service are great. The kitchen is efficiently run, no waiting for meals to come out. I have also been there for dinner and receptions, all of which are on the same level of quality and professionalism."

  • "It was hard to believe the waiter's well rehearsed sales pitch, but I will try ahi tuna just about anywhere. Turned out to be much better than I expected, and give the oysters and tuna a 9, and matches the sales pitch "Louisville is a UPS hub and we get our fish straight from Hawaii within 24 hours of catch". I doubt the catch part, but probably within the same week or so the fish was frozen. I had the 40 day dry aged ribeye on the second visit, and give it an 8. Very good, but not better than the standard Ruth's Chris ribeye. Ill try the fillet next time, and there will be a next time."

  • "Although I prefer the East end location, the downtown location is definitely going in the right direction. Food quality was great and service on par. Glad to see the restaurant is same as east end because z-Fusion was not a great experience. Keep up the great work. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and food was great. "

  • "Z's Downtown is a beautiful restaurant. The menu is the same as the suburban location. The NY Strip was good, but not as good as many we've had at Z's. The blue cheese dressing for the wedge salad was way too thick (too much mayo?). I know these comments are picky. Z's is a good place and we will return."

  • "The experience and food was great and we had a nice time. Although our reservations were at 6:00 pm we were waited on right away and all courses came at just the right time. This is a high end restaurant but worth it. Be sure and try the Shrimp and beef tip Macaroni and Cheeses, this is a meal in itself."

  • "First, service is impeccable, from the moment the hostess greets you to the outstanding care the waiter takes with everything. Raw oysters, fresh daily, were terrific. Ceviche was tremendous burst of flavor. Wedge salad done with care. Mint Julep and old-fashioned were terrific as well"
