The service was good but the mac and cheese did not have any sauce and was oily. That left to be desired.

Great place to enjoy a good meal and good wine while listening to live jazz. I always enjoy my time at les zygomates. The ambiance is a mix of classy, artsy and cozy intimate, definitely a spot for those who can appreciate good wine, food and music.

We went primarily to listen to music and sat at the bar, forgoing the reservation we had made for a table. They have a great wine list and so many options for however hungry you happen to be. What a wonderful way to spend an evening listening to Shinichi Otsu play jazz on the piano and eating amazing food.

The food was very good and the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food.

"Kenneth" was our waiter. My guest was late, but Kenneth showed great patience awaiting a full table and he had a most upbeat and service-oriented demeanor throughout the entire meal. The service could not have been any better.

The food was excellent, the service was very good. A band started to play shortly after we got there. It was good music but as a result I could not hear what anyone else at the table was saying. The music was too loud for me and took away from the meal.

Service was rude and inattentive and dinner took over 2 1/2 hours. Onion soup was too sweet and was not cleared for nearly 20 minutes after pushed to the side. Entre order was “lost by the kitchen” and unnoticed until we finally had to complain and ask for it again after 40 minutes waiting. Absolutely not worth the price. We will not be returning.

Never disappoints. I don't know why it's not filled to the brim every Saturday. We have always enjoyed this place very much and are thankful for the wonderful service, food, an atmosphere ever time.

Thanks very much.

The prix fixe menu was a real deal - especially with the wine pairing! Food was very good (but give steak with steak frites a "B"). The standout was the chocolate molten cake for dessert! The place was busy on a Tuesday night - and lively with the jazz band playing. All in all a good time!

Very surprised at the food. The salad I had was drenched in dressing and inedible. My coworker who explicitly told them of her allergies got a salad full of vinegar (which she is allergic to) and the server (not our waitress) looked annoyed when she took the salad back. I caught the look on her face, my coworkers back was to her and she did not. That's unacceptable. This wasn't someone being picky, this was an allergy! I can only imagine the types of people who are demanding but we were not. I will not be back.

This is one of my neighborhood favorites. I had my family (with children ages 7, 14, and 16) visiting and the restaurant crew were all awesome. Such a friendly and welcoming restaurant for all. I’ll definitely be back and would gladly recommend to colleagues, friends, and family. The live music is such a treat!

Terrific place to hear live music. Very warm environment with lots of wood and brick. Food was excellent and our server was outstanding - very professional and attentive without being obtrusive. He knew the menu well and helped me with a wine selection.

We look forward to returning.

Both of our steaks had immense amounts of gristle. The waitress was almost non existent. The waiter for the table across from us did more for us than our actual waitress. Very disappointing! The worst restaurant on our vacation thus far and the most expensive.

We received the complete wrong entree and we had to go up and find the server because he wasn’t coming up to our table. We then had to wait an additional 25 minutes before our correct entree came to the table.
