    We have been coming to the Zinfandel Grille for many years and have always enjoyed it, considering it one of our favorite places. But the food of late is mediocre at best. Regarding this visit, the Caesar salad was warm, soggy and bland. The Marg pizza was also bland. The calamari was nice and crispy and the best part of the meal. The server was sweet but a bit overly attentive and somewhat intrusive at times and although friendly and chatty she was difficult to understand.

    I had the Salmon with curry sauce and it was awful. The sauce was on the bottom, below the rice and the salmon, so you couldn’t taste it at all. What I could scrape off the plate was bland. The salmon was seasoned well, but would have been over cooked had I not requested it to be medium rare. And the saffron rice was tasteless. I told them I was not happy with it (though didn’t ‘send it back’). I think they should have made an effort to compensate me with a free dessert or free bread, but they didn’t. Other meals were ok.

    Upscale (tablecloths, fully set tables, tasteful décor, calm ambience)? Quiet but not dead? Courteous greeting upon arrival? Really professional waiter? Food presentation and taste as from a 5-star chef?...........if this is what your looking for, look no more - it's right here!! My date and I talked about our delightful experience eating here, long afterwards.

    We’ve been regular customers here, but it’s our first time since the pandemic. The restaurant looks remodeled and still fashionable. The menu is much more limited and pricier than before. The calamari and gnocchi were good. The linguine was subpar using store bought pasta and very spicy. I could make a better linguine dish at home. Bit disappointed by the lower quality and higher prices.

    I ordered the NY skirt steak medium rare and it came medium to well done. Due to the cost of this item, especially since it was a Skirt Steak, it should have been cooked to perfection. The cut of the meat was also a little tough. I would not order this item again on the menu.

    This was our first visit to Zinfandel Grille since the pandemic began. We're long-time customers of the restaurant. Zinfandel Grille had always been a top-notch fine-dining restaurant with excellent food and attentive service. We were disappointed on our recent visit. Service didn't meet the standard set over the years here, and cost-cutting was obvious as well. Choices were limited. We were disappointed.

    Very good food. Black Widow craft cocktail delicious. Just wanted a taste of my husband’s tiramisu, but ended up having several. I’m not a big tiramisu connoisseur, but this was the best I’ve ever tasted. Our excellent waiter Don told us it’s house made.

    Have always loved the ambiance at Zin Grille. The service was great. Food is good and generous. I had a Margarita Pizza. The balance between the cheese and tomato sauce could have been better. Too much cheese and not enough tomato sauce.

    Zinfandel is suffering like most restaurants by staff shortages and what appears to be a shortened menu. Service can be slow. Otherwise., a great neighborhood restaurant.

    I ordered the Gnocchi and was really good. The bottle of wine was a little warm and the minestrone a little cold. I was expecting the waiter to offering us some experience to surprise my wife because I marked the occasion as a birthday on the booking. I was disappointed with the menu because there weren’t to much options for dinner. For my experience Zinfandel is a good place do go for Everyday dinner but not for special occasion like romantic or birthday dinner for party of two.
