I wasn’t happy they changed their pizza style and its own pizza it’s not the same! The old way was much better and service was slow! It’s suppose to be my daughter birthday to enjoy it and lots of things I wasn’t happy!
No reservations for patio seating, happy hour is ONLY at the bar, no table side fettuccine on the patio. Super slow service, waitress was unprofessional to the females present, and overly friendly to the males present. New pizza is terrible.
We've eaten MANY times over the years and always loved our experience. My only complaint is that you rarely have Stout or Porter beer on tap. The food and staff are always excellent.
Our server was amazing. The experience was dampened by our salad course. The main entrees were delicious and our server went out of her way to make sure my husband had the perfect drink and our toddler boys had enough bread.
The service was great, food was excellent. We sat outside on the patio, awesome scenery & friendly atmosphere
Food is a bit too salty for me and the service is excellent!
Surprisingly bland. We went there for a anniversary dinner on recommendation from a friend. Very nice looking place, great attentive server. The food was unfortunately tasteless. Made the joke that we might as well have just gone to Olive Garden and order twice the amount of food for the price.
I think the host at the front door was falling asleep because she had her head down on the counter when I walked up. The bar service was slow to wait on us. Two people at the other end of the bar were waited on before us and we arrived first.
Very nice restaurant. Pricey though. Would go more often if prices were more reasonable. Nearly $6 for a side salad seemed unreasonable. For the size, could have dropped price by a $1. Restaurant was pretty empty. Most restaurants are pretty full even for a Monday....Zia's was nearly empty which should be an indication you need something to draw in the crowd during the early week. The half price appetizers and pizzas was a good option but there was only our table filled and people sitting at the bar. With all the restaurants downtown Zia's needs a nitch to draw in the crowds. Just suggestions!
Food was bad sadly. 6 people went and we all disliked our meals.
Multiple pros though
- great server
-nice river view
-the dessert was the only good pArt of meal
I would recommend this place for just dessert and drinks. I wish the food was better, but sadly it is really bad, and I’m top of that, it is overpriced.
I am very disappointed that Zia’s changed their pizza. The new pizza is soggy, too thick of a crust and not tasty. they should just go back to their original pizza. That was one of the reasons we come to Zia’s
Our anniversary dinner was beautiful. We asked to have a table by the water and they quickly found one for us!
Our food at Zia's was fantastic, and you can't beat the view of the river on a beautiful summer day.
S L O W service we had to flag down our waitress several times and she acted annoyed
Waiting 1 hour & 45 minutes after being seated for your food is not acceptable
The food was average and the restaurant was dirty.
Food was delightful. Authentic Italian cooking. Appetizers and main course were excellent. Extensive wine selection. Only negative was the service the evening we were there. Very, very slow to receive our main course.
Use to go to Zias for all special events. They really have gone down hill. My pregnant sister had to send alfresi back due to too much brandy in entre. She still had to pay full price and was not able to eat with reat of table. Asked for desert menu and was not given one. Requested butter and had to go to kitchen ourselves to get. My cousin requested her entre to be made table side. They forgot and she was handed it from kitchen. The list goes on and on. I requested to talk to manager after bills were paid and he asked "what do you want, free desert in to go boxes?" No apologies. No genuine concern. Horrible experience for FAR too much money.
Our server on the patio was great! (sorry to not remember her name). The food was delicious! The manager who seated us was a bit abrasive and made a point of telling me that my request for the patio was only a “request “ despite saying “this time” she could seat us there.
Not what it once was! Poor quality food at high prices! Poor service/food lacking taste .Soup was not worthy to feed a dog. Reservations with a request for a booth were useless. Denied Happy Hour but, now glad we didn't waste any more money there. Portions were small, looked more like appetizers. This place should be closed down. A disgrace among all the good eateries in Toledo. Would not go back even if it were free! DO NOT GO THERE!! A TRUE WASTE OF MONEY! All 4 of us are educators and will share our experience with others!:( :( :( :(
Food is expensive for the quality. Wasn’t anything special. Wouldn’t return .
We really enjoyed the new pizza! So glad they are making their own bread!
Atmosphere is authentic Italian dining and wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Food is excellent as well. I’m the $15-$30 a plate range with an extensive wine list. A place you need to try at least once.
The food was delicious! Lots of variety. Decor and music were great. Server and staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Everything had a homemade taste.
Always delicious, always dependable! We try to make Zia's at least 2-3 times a summer. We sit out by the river and enjoy the evening. The food, the service, the wine list, and the creative cuisine make it wonderful!
It's my favorite seafood restaurant and my favorite restaurant in Toledo.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary and our waitress was friendly and helpful with the menu since we had never been there before.
Appetizer took over 45 minutes to come out, it was the meat & cheese tray so no cooking required. Needless to say that was set down and before we got a bite here came our salad & dinner, which my dinner I rejected when it was brought before the appetizer the first go around. You’ve changed the pizza which was the reason we came there because my husband used to love it BEFORE the change. Your restaurant was not busy, I’d hate to seen if it was. My husband asked 3 times for a refill that he finally got after we paid the bill. Last mixing scallops with chicken in the carbonara was horrible!!! If you are going to do a scallop carbonara special don’t dump chicken (which was dry) into it. We’ve been coming there at least 4 times a year for years, doubting we’ll be back, especially with the bad choice of changing the pizza. Also the bread change you made at the beginning of the year is also a horrible choice.
The food didn’t seem up to the usual standard and the service seemed a little rushed. I can only assume it was the 4th of July and the staff wanted to get home but for $100 for two people the food and service seemed a little lacking.
I have been to Zias many times before. This will likely be the last time. Prices were steep for what you received. The egg plant was not as good as THE OLIVE GARDEN, with theirs being quite tender (plus much less costly). No rewards -perks for a birthday. But the one thing that was disturbing was the constant flow of people in an out the back door and most unknowning leaving it open and allowing the 95 degree temperatures to come in. Honestly, huge let down for the whole party and all agreed, too much money for the experience and no perks! Sorry Zias-will not likely return.
Great time, great food!
Loved it, they should open one in northern Kentucky, good with allergies, excellent service, good food, priced appropriately.
We waited about an hour for our food. No free dessert for birthday as there was in the past. Service slow
Eight family members got together to say good bye to two moving to Florida. We had a very relaxed time, didn't feel rushed to eat and leave. The food was excellent and many took home
leftovers. The only thing we all didn't like was the choice of music and how loud it was. It was
too loud for some to hear conversations across the table.
As always—Zia’s was great but our server, Jenna, was exceptional. Another fabulous dining experience.
The food was pretty darn good. Our table was up against a bunch of filthy wine bottles. When we mentioned this, we were told that they were just empty bottles. The waitress wasn't around much, so we had to wait a bit if we needed something. The waitress knocked over a drink onto my wife's lap, offered to go get a towel, and apologized. No offer of anything to make up for it.
Excellent food as always
My meal was very good! I loved the cherry mostarda!
Great food , fast service and reasonably priced. I would go back anytime
Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious. The only complaint was it was too cold where we were sitting and had air constantly blowing on us.
