Zeal - Food for Enthusiasts
Went in for brunch and did the bottomless Mimosa and French press coffee. Service was great and our server really new the menu. I really enjoyed the pulled pork Benedict with the asparagus hollandaise and the sweet potatoes. Ill definitely be back.
A little pricey for brunch, but the food was good and very allergen and vegan friendly.
Healthy, creative, well-priced food. Great vegetarian options. Loved the matcha tea!
Had dinner actually on February 19. Everything was great, service, food, company terrific!
The food at this place was interesting, innovative and delicious. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our apps and entrees. The service, however, was only average. Our server was young, and very inexperienced. Sometimes she was helpful, but then she disappeared for over an hour. The experience was therefore not wonderful, but we will go back.
Love this place! Amazing food and service !
So glad we have such great food so close. We used to have to (and did) drive
to Boulder. Options for everyone from vegan to Paleo. Have tried most of the things on their menu, yet to find something we don't like.
Great food for both of us, one vegan and one carnivore. Everything excellent, but bread for burger would have been much better if locally made rather than a mass produced bun.
Great food and service!
Excellent food and all around great experience
Seem to have been short staffed the evening we were there. Good food, when it finally arrived.
The kale salad and the Pink Shrimp curry are delicious and some of the best I've had. They accommodate special diets and provide great service in a casual atmosphere. We didn't feel rushed and we felt well taken care of.
Finally found an amazing restaurant that caters not only to meat eaters but vegans as Well! Greatful that the ingredients are non gmo and organic! Everything ordered everyone loved, vegan Mac and cheese, conscious kale and house salad with lemon vinaigrette, the fingerlings (couldn't stop eating these). Grass fed burger, wok tossed steak, mighty bowl. Not enough Buckner ranch lamb meatballs, you only receive 3 for the price, was not filling for adult male, he had to place another order (falfels) to get full. Other than that everything was great!
Also their vegan nut cheesecake was amazing. Son enjoyed for birthday dessert.
Planning on returning very soon!
I work in Cherry Creek and have always been underwhelmed by the food at True Food. I was fearful Zeal would have the same kind of consistently bland flavor profile. Zeal is much Better than True Food if you actually like spice and palate pleasing tastes. There’s simply a lot more going on with the flavors at Zeal. I had a very tasty lamb burger and a nice simple salad on the side. My wife had the poke bowl which she really liked. I had the Apple Crisp for dessert. The spiced apples and granola crunch were delicious. The vegan vanilla ice cream was good but I would have preferred a cream based vanilla ice cream.
I would return to Zeal and would recommend it to friends.
We had an excellent meal at Zeal. Absolutely love the twinkling lights all around the center and the restaurant was so clean and inviting. Looks may be deceiving because although Zeal appears sparse and a bit cold with the high ceilings, the service is beyond warm and the food is way above average. Creative, tasty, and healthy meals like the Macro Bowl and the Pink Shrimp were so good and the complexity and wonderful flavors took us by surprise. Also, the stir fry steak was fantastic and beer selection, great. Additionally, the entire staff was friendly and very welcoming. Loved it!!
Awesome! Certainly exceeded our expectations. Large menu, had a hard time trying to choose what to eat. With that, we will be back again and again!
I am celiac and love a finding a restaurant that makes it easy and provides tons of choices.
Lots of variety between food and drinks.
Great food! Great ambiance and Great service!! Portions are small which is the only drawback. I ordered the curry on three occasions and on the last visit added Chicken, but I felt they cut back on the portion size when I added the chicken which wasn't what I expected. I love this place and will come back. I just wish the portions were somewhat larger.
Been to Zeal 4 times now, each time it was a great experience. Every dish here is delicious and you feel good about eating it because of the high quality ingredients. Compliments to the Chef for a great mix of flavors and there's something for everyone. Great ambiance too. Feels comfortable and Colorado. Great selection of wines, beers, and even super-food juices and smoothies. Try out this place! I'm certainly hooked!
I really liked this restaurant because of all of the vegetarian options and interesting choices. The macaroni and cheese (made with almond cheese) was fantastic. I also enjoyed the stir fried tofu with quinoa. The white wine choices were quite good, but the single rose offered was too sweet. Zeal offers several La Vieielle Ferme wines and I suggest that they add the rose from this vineyard as it is excellent and could be offered for a very low price since most liquor stores sell it for $7 per bottle ($5.99 on sale).
Interesting menu. A lot to choose from and varied selections.
The food here is both healthy and delicious - hard to find on the south side of the Denver area. We had the kale salad, fingerlings with chimichurri, grass fed burger and grass fed beef stir fry. All dishes were fresh and flavorful. Even the gluten free bun I requested with the burger was outstanding. The service is great and the staff are friendly. We'll definitely be back.
Great restaurant! Will definitely be back.
Tried Zeal DTC last night for the first time and was impressed. The service was excellent and the food was tasty. We tried the soup of the day which was a carrot and ginger curry which was good. The mighty bowl was tasty as well especially with the hot sauce which, I believe, was homemade. Our favorite item was the vegan mac & cheese. The flavor was delicious (especially the mushrooms) and without all the guilt. Cocktail menu looked awesome! Can't wait to go back and try more items!
