We sat at the bar where we could see the entire restaurant. Great ambiance. Bartender Cecile was very nice and made a perfect Martini. Lemon Greek soup was hot, creamy and delicious, great way to start the meal. Stuffed grape leafs were good; the bechamel that was in them was not lemony enough, good that they served a wedge of lemon. It might have been nice to add some crumbled feta cheese. For an additional $3 we requested grilled pita bread which added to the dish. We will go gain.

Restaurant was surprisingly busy for a small town. The service was perfect. The fish chowder was excellent, and the gyro was just okay. I will be back to try other items.

We've been eating here for years, have recommended it to many and are now in shock from our recent visit. The Santorini Shrimp, one of our two favorites, tasted like the entire jar of artichoke hearts plus its liquid (mostly vinegar) had been cooked with some linguine and a few shrimp. The rich flavor this dish always had in the past was missing. The seafood pizza, a treat worth the 45 minute drive for us, had a thick, doughy crust instead of the thin, crispy (but not burned) crust of the past. The top was covered with luscious bits of fish and shrimp, as usual, but NO GARLIC flavor!!! A huge disappointment since this is our all-time favorite food at this restaurant. A gyro came with three thin tomato half slices and a smattering of shredded lettuce. There was a $1 charge for extra tzadziki sauce which turned out to be cream cheese with some onions in it. A friend's coconut shrimp was a dark brown and dried out, clearly overcooked. It was replaced, but by then, the rest of our party was half-way through the meal.
I am truly confounded. After years of dependable excellence across the board - food, service, ambiance, price - I'm reluctant to go back.
I'm hoping it was a case of hiring a new, terrible, cook and not a change in ownership with accompanying changes.

Zorba's in great for lunch or dinner, and they're always busy. Food comes out relatively quickly, even when they're busy, and the servers are friendly.

This was our 2nd time at Zorba's and this is a nice find. The menu is very varied. Favorites dishes this time were the Calamari, Ribs, and Swordfish. If you order an Alfredo dish be prepared for a overabundance of sauce. It was good, just very rich sauce. Salads are also always fresh and good (recommend the Caesar and Greek salads).

did not have my reservation that was confirmed through open table. My group was seated in a 4-person booth but when we arrived quickly moved to a larger table for 6. Service was okay-waitress did not refill water glasses. waitress was not clear about the menu items and what each had as ingredients. overall our meal was okay-I have had a better meal here in the past.

We have been going to Zorba's every year for 5 years for Thursday night All-you-can-eat Greek chicken. Their website says it is a Thursday night special but when we arrived we found that they moved it to Tuesday. If you're going to have a website make sure it is kept up to date. However, food was very good, as usual, and we enjoyed ourselves. Will return next year.

This restaurant was a great find and we enjoyed our meal. They really do a good job with the meals. We had the Pan Seared Tuna, Lamb Chops, and Shrimp with Pasta dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the waitress and staff were very nice and friendly. Definitely recommend this place.
