This was not a good experience. My steak was not prepared correctly, I never received one item I ordered. The waitress tried to accommodate us and remedy the situation about the steak being raw but it was just not a great situation considering the bill was over $100.
As we were leaving I went to the restroom and it was completely disgusting. It was obvious it hadn’t been cleaned in quite awhile because there was a pinkish brown colored ring around the toilet bowl.
I hadn’t been to the restaurant in a few years and was looking forward to going but after the experience we had I don’t foresee us going back anytime in the near future.

Overrated and overpriced: We had four steaks; three mediocre, one exceedingly tough (unable to finish as it was very difficult to cut and chew; could not finish). Advertised as "choice," but cost was beyond "prime." Disappointed. HOWEVER: seating was prompt and located as requested; service was exceedingly caring and cheerful.

We went, expecting very good food (correct) and a less than intimate surroundings. The place was loud even before the arrival of a large group of (you might say energetic- I would say close to obnoxiously drunk) late 30's guys each trying to outdo the other in their sucking up to the boss. Poor guy probably had to pay, and has the unpleasant task of actually working with these blowhards.

The food was very good, the wine list was excellent, but the 'ambiance' was the next thing to unbearable. We tried, you won't get a second chance.

Visited last Friday.

Had another wonderful experience at Little Zagreb's, staff was friendly as always, and on top of drinks and rolls while we waited. Salad was crisp and fresh, steak's were cooked as ordered with no disappointments. Bucharest meatballs were an absolute hit with the boys again, spicy with a really nice afterbite. 10 out of 10

It was a family reunion dinner occasion.
My steak was cooked to perfection. My brother’s on the other hand was over cooked.
There also wasn’t a changing table in the restroom and some of the employees acted pretentious when we asked about one so we had to change the baby in car. Granted one of them apologized for acting as such, which was appreciated but wouldn’t have been necessary if it wasn’t for the attitude.
The service was ok. The servers always made sure the drinks were refilled and they made sure that we had everything we needed but getting closer to the end of the meal we felt rushed to finish when they kept asking to box up food when we weren’t done. I understand them trying to be efficient but there has to be a different approach to handle the end of meal experience. I usually tip 25-30% but I left 20%.
It was kind of loud but understandable with all the people in the restaurant. My parents loved the music playlist.
All in all everything was ok.

Loved the ambiance. Had dinner with my college age son and his friend. Very casual. They had steaks, which they enjoyed. I ordered ribs, which are a huge portion, and literally swimming in hot sauce--not my favorite. More my problem in ordering than the restaurant's fault.
