Zeal Ratings and Reviews
We were seated in the back in a very private booth, which was ideal for us talkative women celebrating a friends birdthday. The food was very good from an interesting and varied menu. The waiter was very attentive and when I didn't like the wine I ordered, he brought me 3 glasses to taste 3 different wines. My only complain is that the waiter wouldn't sing!!!
Wish they had a Father's Day buffet like last year but the Father's Day a la Carte menu was still very good. My dad had the salmon hash and I had the chorizo hash. Both very good, and Leonardo was our server and did an awesome job. He got a little busy but still gave us nice service.
Monday fun day! Last night was a fun dinner at zeal. We wanted to go to Red Sky but a friend recommended Zeal and we are glad we went. The kale salad was nice. Wine menu is great with lots of options. The James River Oysters were great and comparable to intown oysters at the Optimist, thumbs up there. Service was good.
Embarrassingly empty on Father's Day. Food was pretty good but options were quite limited. It was definitely not the buffet brunch I was expecting as advertised on Open Table and held on Mother's Day. My son ordered the shrimp po-boy which was exactly four shrimp on a hamburger bun. Unaccepable. Service was slow to be only one of three tables there and we even had to flag down someone at the end to pay the check. Busboy came to bus the tables as we were signing the check! Really? It's not like they needed the table but I did need my water glass for one more sip. Servers were friendly but some things should be understood if you are in the business. This was our second time there but likely our last as I now feel like I owe my husband a do-over for his Father's Day dinner.
Went for a meal that we wanted to show off to a new East Cobb resident. Was not very busy for a Thursday evening but the ambiance and decor were pleasant as usual. Our server Jake did a great job on pointing out wines, cocktails and entrees to try. The food tasted fresh and was well prepared. Zeal isn't the highest end Dining experience but it is very dependable and has always been good for us.
the food was amazing! I had the scallops which came with pork belly brussel sprouts. our server was really slow but it was fine for a catch up dinner. wine bottles were also half off and there was live music - we went on a Wednesday. definitely will return!
My wife and I had a great experience at Zeal for dinner. Our server Jake did a great job taking care of us. In particular he had a knowledgeable point-of-view on the wine list and directed my wife to a great selection. I had a 1/2 dozen raw oysters to start which were large, briny and delicious. Only complaint, the saltines packages were all crushed. For our dinner my wife enjoyed the Zeal salad with pan seared salmon. Great! I had the Wagyu burger and substituted mashed potatoes for fries. Both were excellent. Overall a really nice dinner and again, our server Jake was a difference maker with his effusive personality and rock-solid product knowledge.
Third time we've tried Zeal. For some reason, we always want to give it the benefit of the doubt and go back. Server was very friendly but forgot about us. I never got my wine and we never got salt/pepper (which should be staples on the table). Burger was overcooked and underwhelming. My salad was fine but how can you ruin a salad ??!?!?! So - unfortunately, I don't think we will be returning.
Tuesday night was our 2nd night at zeal in 48 hours. We had Mothersday Dinner Sunday and ladies night on Tuesday, both nights we were glad to have Jim as our server. They were very busy yet he managed to give great service and recommend everyone exactly what they would enjoy. Mothersday was great, as my mother and daughter are ciliacs and Zeals GF menus is probably top 3 in Atlanta for all their choices and variety. Nice menu! Thanks
Mothersday experience was very special. We have been to zeal a handful of times. We were worried because our reservation was at 1pm and when we got there the place was packed and everyone was very busy. But our server Gary accommodated us very well and ensured we had a good experience. We had 7 omelets amongst the 4 of us so that tells ya we enjoyed our brunch. We will be back for next Sunday's regular brunch.
Wow definitely coming again! The service was wonderful, had a very nice server (Jake) very funny, always got us what we needed. The food was prepared very well, I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was lively and their live music was very enjoyable. Very bright atmosphere, well decorated. The bartender made the best drinks for me. 10/10 would come again!
We have gone to Zeal several times and have had good experiences but we visited Zeal for their Mother's Day Brunch and half of the food options were empty and by the time they were filled, we had been there for 30 minutes and my family was ready to leave. Thus, we paid $30 per person for brunch that consisted of only a few options. When we asked whether the rest of the items would be replaced, nobody really knew so ultimately we paid double for what it was worth. Not a good experience. They appeared confused and did not look like they expected it to be as busy as it was.
Are you kidding me with this service? Didn't even have silverware at the table. It's like there were a bunch of servers running around and no manager. Took forever to bring drinks to the table. Luckily it was a brunch buffet otherwise we'd still be there waiting for our food. Truly disappointing.
Sunday brunch did not impress. This was a set menu buffet. The food ran out fast and more than a dozen of us waited in line for about 10 minutes before some of the food was replenish. It still took about 5 or so minutes before the remaining buffet items were replenished. Staff seemed over whelmed.
Had a very disappointing Mother's Day brunch. Had to wait several times for the buffet dishes, desserts to be refilled. Had to wait for over 20 mins to get an omelette. Service was lousy, used plates were not removed, had to go hunting for the server for coffee refills, check etc. I can't blame it on mother's day either as the place was not packed (now I know why). Not coming back.
The food was not really good. I have been to Zeal's twice before and the food was much better. Also, the waiter was a little slow in attending to us. The bar side with the live band was a little too loud for my taste. For the $90 ticket, I expected way much more...not a good value this time in my opinion.
Excellent neighborhood find! This was our first time at ZEAL and it is our absolute hands down favorite place to enjoy a wonderful, fresh meal. We loved everything we ordered and will definitely return. Our waiter, Gary, was superb and knowledgeable, which we greatly appreciated since we had never been to Zeal previously. I checked Open Table reviews to help with our restaurant selection, and, once again, this was right on point. We'll be back and often.
Dinner was great. It was cinco de Maio so they had hand crafted margaritas and a 3 taco special which my husband loved!! The burger was amazing!! But the service was the best. Sam helped us and he was spot on, very knowledgeable and funny. My husband said he should be on the food network. Zeal is very professional with professional servers and the best food in East Cobb. We love Zeal and will definitely go back. Great neighborhood restaurant. It's worth it. Food is amazing!!
We had a large table of 8 in the back corner and LOVED the experience. Live music by singer songwriter and the wine-down Wednesday 1/2 price bottles were a big hit. Very relaxing atmosphere, easy to hear one another, food inventive / delicious and service excellent. We had a complicated tab with separate checks and our waiter didn't miss a beat. Thank you. This social & service organization will be back for another group meal.
This is probably the 4th time I have dined at Zeal with groups ranging from 2-7. The service is attentive and knowledgeable (Jake) and the wine selection is very good and the food variety is excellent; well prepared and of good value.
If you live in East Cobb or Roswell, you should try it out.
