Grant Park"s Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

My wife and I have been to this locale a few times and can definitely recommend it for the atmosphere, drinks, and especially the jazz. The music was absolutely wonderful. The only negative I have to add is a recommendation to avoid the kitchen. One of my favorite dinner dishes is chicken picatta. I tried that at Ziba's and was extremely disappointed. The dish served was chicken with a heavy cream sauce that was inedible even with a steak knife. It was served with rather flavorless rice. The next trip I decided to go with a "safe" food and ordered a bacon cheeseburger. I ended up picking out the "burger" and having a very expensive bacon cheese sandwich for dinner. The fries were good. I don't know what was in the burger or what it was seasoned with but it was simply awful. How can you screw up a cheeseburger?! Great place for drinks and music. Just eat before you go.

We had a very nice dining experience last Friday evening. The food was delicious, we had the spicy shrimp and burrata as appetizers. We chose the bow tie pasta with salmon as our entree and we were not disappointed. Our server, Victoria , was very nice and very helpful.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Ziba's is probably our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is always delicious (recommend the empanadas and burrata appetizer, bowtie pasta, beet salad, and my new favorite, the turkey meatloaf! There's hardly ever a wait and I love going on Thursdays for $15 bottomless wine night! Ziba's is a true hidden gem!

Ziba's is my go-to place for everything from first dates to business lunches and networking brunches. Friendly accommodating staff, inviting atmosphere that inculdes music that enhances without distracting, and the food is always outstanding.

We get the mussels every time we go to Ziba's, and they've always been perfect. The service and drinks (specifically the lemony snicket [sp?]) have always been fantastic too.

Great little joint in Grant Park. Drinks, food and service were very good. There was a jazz band playing in the front, making it a little bit loud, but hey. I can see parking being a bit of an issue, but we got lucky on the street right around the corner.

We loved everything about Ziba’s Bistro. The mussels, calamari, hummus, and spicy shrimp were perfectly cooked and seasoned. My husband and I went on Saturday at 7:45 just before the live music began, with our 10 year old son. I was worried that the food would be too adventurous for him or that the music would be too loud, but he loved everything that we ordered and enjoyed the music too! The service was impeccable, and I look forward to dining here again.
