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

My husband and I recently had a date at Mezzo’s and couldn’t rave more! The fresh ravioli special took us back to Italy, absolute dynamite! The crab cakes were fresh and the aioli dips were on point! Absolutely amazing food and service! Kayla, our server was fast, kind and courteous, exceptional! Our third time here and we will be back soon!

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.

The service was EXTREMELY slow. My husband and I had garlic bread, which was awesome. We both had the chef's special, which were smash burgers. They were very pricey for what you get. The drinks were great. Overall, everything was ok. They should probably reevaluate the menu prices and figure out a way to speed up the service. Our reservation was at 6:30. We were seated immediately. We were served our food at 8:30 and given our check at 9:20

The winery & restaurant are in a scenic location in the Lincoln Hills wine trail area. The restaurant is moderately sized which feels more intimate and a big plus is it's quiet! Enjoyable food selection and excellent quality and taste.

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.

About the restaurant
**HAPPY HOUR DISCLOSURE Happy hour is walk in only and limited to the bar, and the bar side of our patio. Adding notes to your reservation requesting happy hour does not guarantee you a happy hour table.

Our menu is a true California Cuisine, offering a wide array of steaks, seafood, appetizers, soups, salads sandwiches and burgers, and creative desserts. We have a hand picked wine and cocktail list and a fun atmosphere.

We also offer "whole pig" dinners that must be pre ordered.
