My husband and I had a great dinner at Zeppole last night. The service was amazing and our steaks were delicious. We had a minor issue when my husband’s steak was overdone, but we brought it to our server’s attention and they immediately brought him a new steak that was cooked perfectly. Our server, Anna, made sure we had everything we needed and more. (As a side note, we also tried the pasta and it was just average. Definitely go for the ribeye/filet!)

Overpriced limited menu. What you'd expect at a hotel. But server and service was super. Recommend Frito Misto appetizer

Exceptional service! My server was very attentive and even had a nice conversation with me about Mexico and tips for my upcoming vacation. The food was delicious, but the best part was the bread. Soooo good with the balsamic! Would highly recommend.

Decent food a resort (high) prices, great atmosphere in a beautiful setting at the Gaylord Texan. We had the lasagna, chicken and pasta bolognese and all were good eating, but you’ll be double what you’d pay at Olive Garden for food which is a little better with much better location abd ambience.

My husband, my kids and I stayed at the Gaylord Texan Resort and I made reservations at this restaurant. It was our first time dinning at that place and it won't be the last one. We will definitely come back. The restaurant is beautiful. The food was amazing with really good portions. They have a kids menu with plenty of options for the kiddos. My husband and I ordered the meatballs as appetizers and they were flavorful, big in size and soft in texture. The main dishes didn't disappoint at all either. My oldest son loved the kids pizza and his dessert (chocolate ice cream). Our waiter recommended us to try a dessert that is a combination of Crème brûlée and cheesecake and it was a great choice. I will definitely come back and it will probably be for Christmas. The hotel has special activities during the Holidays.

Service was horrible, food was under cooked no one acknowledged or tried to fix the problem. No manager and the waiter said they were busy and just trying to get the order out. Was seated at the bar area in dark area, had to request lighting . Was there to celebrate my 26 th wedding anniversary which was ruined by choosing to dine at this location.

Highly recommend a reservation for this place! Service was poor, we waited at least 10 minutes before having our order for drinks taken. It was tremendously busy, but I’m sure this is normal for the place. Overall food was mediocre at best.

Food quality was just ok this year. We missed the lobster bisque that’s usually there. We have been to the Gaylord for many years for Brunch and this year the food was sub par. They ran out of crab legs. This was not worth $80 a person. Step it up or we will go elsewhere in the future.

The entire staff is to be commended. Always there when needed. Very nice buffet and I realize it was Mother’s Day but seriously, $85 per person is outrageous. Taking advantage that most hotels have stopped their special occasion buffets. Sad

My friend and I were on a girls trip and stayed at the Gaylord and had dinner at Zeppole. The atmosphere is great, it feels like you are sitting outside on a patio at an Italian Villa. The food was good. Everything we had came out hot and had good flavor, although I felt like everything could use a little bit more seasoning whether it was garlic or salt or oregano etc.…My only complaint was the service was very very slow and it took us two hours to get through our meal just because we had to wait so long for someone to come back to take our order, refill drinks, etc. I would still eat there again.

Loved the food. In a huge atrium area in the hotel so lots of people walking by and noise. Frito misto was outstanding along with the side of sautéed mushrooms. Would definitely go back.

Disappointing experience. Reserved for 16 people for a prom dinner. Upon arrival and waiting an extra 15 minutes were told we wouldn’t be able to sit together and were dispersed across the 3 tables.

The pizza was extra cheesy with rarely any sauce and cubes of cheese. Didn't like that at all. The spaghetti sauce taste like Chefboyrdee. The noodles were hard and reminded us of Ramen noodles. For the money I expected way better. Olive Garden is 10x better than this place.

I was there a year and half ago it was perfect, food was the best I had ever had. Now the food was horrible and the price outrageous. The pandemic is not an excuse to rip people off and give them less service and poor quality food.

We sat in the bar area and our server was one of the bartenders. The service was top notch and the food was absolutely delicious. Everyone at our 9 top table got something different and everything was fantastic. Our server went above and beyond to make our visit special. We highly recommend this place and it’s worth the price!
