Consistently excellent food. The truffle gnocchi and the veal tenderloin were excellent. Wine list is over-priced. Nice staff and lovely patio.

Cherry lemon drop was delicious. I also had a breakfast sandwich that was one of the best I have ever had. Very cute atmosphere. The service was excellent as well.

You know what you get at Zocalo's. Showed up for a 5pm reservation and they sat us on time. Had one of the waiters who has been there for quite some time so service was excellent. Had the happy hour menu including the famous blackberry margaritas.
