Popular choices include the 14 oz sirloin steak, 12 hour short ribs, pork belly with spatzle and lobster, crab cake and seared duck breast. Zebra Restaurant has a wide selection of fine wines from around the world, as well as popular international beers and spirits.
While the food was very good, it was overpriced for what was delivered. The wait staff while friendly was often missing and service was slow--almost as if the waiter was the cook and while we were there the hostess began serving as well. For a Friday evening, the restaurant was almost empty which was interesting as to why the service was so slow. Would we go again? Nope--overpriced.
We love Zebra to take clients and potential clients for lunch. Very relaxing and quite along with outstanding food and service
One of the most intimate restaurants in charlotte
Our waiter, Dave, turned what might have been an ordinary lunch into an extraordinary celebration!
Disappointed. Heard good things, but the service was below average and the food (given the price) was not worth the money.
We went for our anniversary based on past experience. Quite frankly, we were disappointed. Service was slow and not very attentive. Food was average.
Nicely appointed dining room with impeccable service! Great "European" feel. Food was outstanding. It was mentioned they had a new chef and a new menu. He appears to be off to a great start. Watermelon gazpacho was excellent and the trout en papiotte just fantastic.
This use to be our favorite fine dining restaurant. Not any more. The changes made seem to lose the intimacy customers would like to have when dining. Most of the dining area is a small dining room with a smaller room attached. The changes have made it brighter and thus everyone gets a feel that they are all dining together and thus have no privacy. Previously, the space had more subduded lighting so that one could feel they were by themselves even though there 30 other guest in the room.
The music was terrible with a varied selection of Jazz Fusion, smooth jazz, Pop techno, etc. and when we spoke with the staff, they said they had no control over it.
We wish them well and hope they find their niche in the Charlotte market
CWHere were the customers?? Was surprised to see such few customers there. Our meal and service were very good. The interior decor was very attractive. We just missed seeing other customers there.
We went there for an anniversary dinner and they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne, but it basically went downhill from there. Food was "OK", but nothing to rave about. Service was "OK" but considering there were only 5 other tables being served while we were there, service was less then stellar. First time I've ever had a waiter walk away in the middle of taking our order without saying a word. Took 15 minutes to get our check at the end of the meal. Given the prices they charge for their food, I have to say that the value just wasn't there. We won't be returning.
