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!

Waiter had no other tables and was still unattentive. Pretty expensive and not as impressive.

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.

I was celebrating my birthday with my friend who’ve I’ve been to Les Zyg with before. It was beautiful to be near the live music, I got a dessert for my birthday, and the food was great. Some things could have been a little better, in general, but I will be back :).

Always enjoyable dinning. Food and service exceptional. Marshall, beverage manager, is a master of mixology. And the music every Saturday, the Yoko Miwa Trio, is jazz to savor.

Les Zygomates was a great choice for a jazz lover’s birthday. Our table had oysters, salmon, sole, and steak, with creme brûlée for dessert. Every dish was very good, but the creme brûlée really stood out as excellent. The noise level on the jazz side still allowed for conversation.

We arrived early but our table was ready. They were happy to let us sit at the bar and have a cocktail first/ hold table. They have an extensive wine list. Food was delicious and plating gorgeous. Flavors just delicious- we practically licked our plates clean! It was our anniversary and they gave us complementary champagne ( nice touch) Enjoyed the live jazz trio too
