    2nd meal here in 2 weeks. Very consistent quality and one of favorite French bistros. Sit in Henry’s section! He’s a great server and knows the menu well!

    We always enjoy the hanger steak.. This time we ordered the 45 day dry aged Rib eye.. All three of us swore it was a New York Steak. It looked like one. tasted like one and had no marbling. The owner gave me an explanation that we found hard to believe. nevertheless less if you are looking for a very marbled Ribeye.. for $72.00..this is not it.. but the hangar steak my friend had was excellent. We had asked for the bar, which is cute as a button. unfortunately we were sat in the dining room.(yes I know the not guaranteed clause.) which we all felt looked more like a sound proof room. We will wait to go back when the new side is compete. Would we recommend.. maybe..

    The entire experience was wonderful: the attractive atmosphere, the greeting by the hostess, the pleasant and menu knowledgeable waitperson - Donna- the menu options and the food preparation. It was our first time at Zola and we are anxious to return.

    The service was impeccable, as always. However, my experience with the beef cheek bourguignon last night was less than satisfactory. It was excessively salty, to the point where I could even detect a hint of bitterness. This was my second time ordering the beef cheek bourguignon, and it was a disappointment compared to my first experience.

    Food is good though limited dessert menu. The restaurant is understaffed. We never got our requested leftovers from dinner to go.
