He could not seat me in a real table to I had no choice but to seat in a "community table." All that said, the service was outstanding, warm, attentive and knowledgeable waiter John, made my dinner memorable. The food was fantastic. I sat next to the cooking counter for salads and dessert and I had a ball watching them put together amazing servings. When I was ready to leave, there was a heavy downpour of rain and Michael gallantly walked me to my driver with an umbrella. Overall, a memorable dinner. I just hope Open Table can get their lingo together around what's "standard" versus "counter seating." Thanks for reading.

Portions of everything were generous, and the server was attentive and well-informed about the various menu items. We had an early dinner, so, it wasn't crowded -- I would imagine it gets rather loud when they are busy. But other than that -- a great place to go before or after a show or concert in the Washington Park area.

The extensive wine list offered choices and price points for everyone. The small, sharable plates gave us a variety of cuisine in just the right proportions. I did not eat the mussels, but everyone else did, and they raved! Make sure to order bread to dip in the broth!

Bulgarian flatbread was delicious and was too much for one person, so we all got to help eating it. The chicken shawarma special got an excellent rating from the person who ordered it. We split the fries, and the waiter split the cost three ways! We were impressed by that. Good, friendly service. Only issue was the noise level, which made conversation challenging.

The service was efficient. Everything was good except the noise level & close quarters of the tables. It seems people are talking much louder in restaurants these days, especially once they have had enough to drink. You feel part of conversations to your left and right as though these people are talking to you. My wife & I like to have quiet conversations with our dinner. If this gets any worse, we’ll have to text each other across the table. This is particularly true of Soto which is one of the worst in town for noise.

Mushrooms were under salted and undercooked and the cauliflower was very one note- bland and covered in curry powder. It was also very undercooked. We didn’t receive our cocktails until we had already finished our meal which was extremely dissatisfying. We were excited to try out Zula but likely won’t be back.

However, the last couple times I've attended, the service has left much to be desired. The woman at the host stand seems inconvenienced to pause her conversation with staff in order to greet incoming customers. This has happened twice now and is extremely off-putting. My party of two waited over 30 mins for one round of drinks and did not see any food until an hour and 20 minutes in. We were sat practically in the kitchen at the edge of a pizza bar, it was hot and uncomfortable. It would be nice to offer a heads up if the pizza bar is the only option and we would choose somewhere else to dine. Nothing was coursed, plates we ordered first arrived out of order, the server had no knowledge of the tequila or after dinner drink selection, and we were rushed to order final plates with the kitchen closing. We were definitely not any kind of priority at Zula that night. There are a ton of amazing restaurants in Cincinnati that have friendly staff, welcoming hosts, knowledgeable staff, and incredible food. I'll spend my money elsewhere, where I'm not made to feel like they are doing me a favor letting me in the door.

We asked about the large dishes and they said they do not offer them anymore, I mentioned the website showed them listed. Overall for flatbread and mussels it was good but not worth the waiting and poor service received.
