The food is always amazing but every time the service is greatly lacking. So slow, I should not sit for 5 minutes before even being greeted by my server. She was very sweet and knowledgeable but the service is always so slow! Do you need more servers? Are they serving too many tables?

I am a long time patron to Zia's. Very disappointed with the new menu. Out of all the times I have gone to Zia's with my wife, I always order your pork chops with the balsamic drizzle. Sadly, it has been removed from the menu along with several of my wife's favorite selections. Please, consider putting some of these back into the menu.

The food waa very good. Good portions and friendly staff. Loved the birthday discount. If the meal I had ordered was correct it would have been a perfect experience. I ate it anyways and it was good. The waitress assured me it was Bolognese sauce but it was not. Being Italian I know this but was so hungry I ate it and was pleased. Will be back for the Bolognese!

My husband and I went here with friends we hadn't seen for a long time. We were greeted, seated and attended to by a great waitress. The food was just delicious! The wine was a bit pricey, but very good. Our server allowed us to start slow and linger long. We really appreciated that! We have told our friends what a great time we had and what wonderful food we enjoyed.

We've gone to Zia's for our birthdays exclusively for over a decade. We've had family surprise party's there even. They've changed a lot in the past 10 years and not for the better. This past visit will be our last unfortunately.

1) They used to offer free food to the birthday person plus a free dessert. This was in the form of 50% off the bill for a party of 2, and a free dessert. Birthdays no longer mean free desserts. You still get half off a meal for 2 (or 1/3 off a table of 3, etc) but you pay for part of the dessert. Bummer. Also, I'm not sure if it was policy or our server, but we didn't get the birthday candles they used to do either. Not a big deal, just noticed it.

2) Service was not great. Our salads were brought out literally 30 seconds before our meals. We had to send the food back to be kept warm. Different servers delivered each course but apparently they didn't coordinate well. I had to stir my tea with a fork handle... no spoons or straws were offered.

3) The bread has changed to a home-made focaccia which is really good, but the Chicken Parm has changed. We used to love this and got it regularly. A couple of visits ago the 4 of us actually all ordered it and all of us felt it was bland and something was off. We never send food back, but did talk to the server and she brought the manager over. They reduced the bill for a couple of them. The next visit was good again, this past one was bad again.

4) The Chicken Parm was $11.95, then $13.95, now $20.95. Deal or not, 50% off is less attractive when prices are doubled in 10 years.

5) The major reason we kept going despite nearly doubling the prices and food being "ok" was for the chocolate mousse dessert. It was heavenly! We were informed this last visit they have discontinued that.

So with "ok" food, higher prices, and removal of our favorite dessert, and a drop is the service level we saw in the past, sadly we are moving on for special occasions. It's not worth the price anymore.

Reservation at 7pm for my granddaughters 4th birthday. She wanted spaghetti and meatballs. Finally got our pizza and two salads at 8:15. There were no more than five tables with customers. Waitress was polite and apologetic but never gave a reason except the pizza was not ready. Seems a pizza should cook in 10-15 minutes max not an hour and fifteen minutes! Grand daughter was well behaved for the first half hour but after more than an hour she was tired cranky and tired as one would expect. Just never expected food to take so long with an almost empty restaurant!

Waited over an hour for our food, even waited a long time for drink refills (wine, martini ect..) it took over a half hour to get our salads before the main entrees. We were with 3 couples it was so frustrating, one of the couples just left.

We met there, and it was my first time. The couple we were with had been to Zia's before. We arrived a little early, so our table was not quite ready. We went to the bar for a drink, and just after our drinks arrived, our table opened up. I cashed out at the bar (would have rather transferred it to the table), and we were seated. The waitress got our drink orders, and an appetizer. They were busy, but the food arrived in a timely fashion. This is contrary to some of the reviews I've read. Our food was properly prepared, hot, and served in a proper progression without undue delay! Our waitress was VERY attentive, and even had the bartender make a martini that he hadn't made before (I gave him the mixology!) ... We WILL be back to Zia's, we enjoyed the people, atmosphere, and the price was acceptable.

The food was very good. The selection was very diversified, our service was exceptional.
The only thing we didn't care for was the noise level. I don't know if it was because of a couple of large groups, but it was hard to converse among our selves. I am sure we will be back again!!

I understand that Zia's is attached to Real Seafood but it smelled of fish horribly. Its pretty bad when you go home and your clothes, hair and coat smell like fish. Not sure but maybe your ventilation system wasn't working. This especially is bad for people that don't eat fish.

Traveling from Fort Worth to visit family in Ohio and Zia’s is one of our must stop and eat places. Wouldn’t miss a chance to eat at Zia’s. The best Italian food. Remember eating there when tall ships were in Toledo for bicentenniall. Never been let down....food is excellent....Recommend the Tortelloni.

Great experience overall. My parents were in town visiting and wanted to try something new. We first originally went next door to a different restaurant but they didn’t even acknowledged us and we were there for 20 minutes. We ended up leaving and went to Zia’s. The hostess was wonderful and was able to seat us right away. Our server was very knowledgeable and even suggested to bring my son’s dinner out when our soup/salads are out. And the food was amazing! My parents enjoyed it and so did I. We will definitely be back again.
