We have been here several times and enjoy the food and atmosphere.
The food and service were wonderful. It was a great date night. It's pretty expensive...we had a gift card which is what brought us there for the first time. Loved it but possibly the most expensive restaurant in State College!
Great Galentine’s dinner experience!
Wonderful ambiance and the best crab cake I’ve ever had! Servers were fast and attentive and all the food (filet & cioppino) was excellent!
Great! only wish they served a little later for post theatre dining etc.
Unfortunately, State College does not have very many fine dining restaurants which, is good for Zola but bad for you as a customer. Zola is one of the better restaurants in town but it is one of the most expensive one also. A filet is $45.00 al-la-carte, which beats most top steak house in price but not flavor. An average entre is $32-$45 and dinner salads are $12. Add in drinks and you meal is about $85/person which is ok for a "great meal" but at Zola it good but not great. It should have been a telling sign when I went onto Open Table for a reservation on Feb. 10th, the Saturday before Valentine's Day and Zola was the only restaurant that came up with many open time slots. And the restaurant was about half full at 7:00 pm. I would put Zola on my foodie list but at the bottom for State College.
Enjoyed our dinner immensely. Nice and quiet atmosphere
Good food, but disappointing service. Our waiter seemed distracted and in too much of a hurry.
Very disappointed. I have always loved Zola and go every time I am in st coll. No more. The ceviche was tiny and tasteless, beet salad had one beet and lits of lettuce, pasta was bland and small, sea bass tiny, cocktails and red snapper were the only good thing. An expensive, un satisfying dinner.
I had a terrible experience at Zola. The waitress and manager were incredibly rude, and the food definitely fell short. If you can’t execute ceviche well, you really shouldn’t have it on the menu. I lived in NYC for over ten years, and I’ve never been treated so poorly in a restaurant as I was treated at Zola.
