Food was great. Didn't find the server to be friendly or helpful.
We have been to Zula's several times and have always been pleased. One time we had most of our family at Over the Rhine. We had been to Zula's and wanted to take the family there. But we didn't have reservations. We stopped in at about 5 and they said they could seat us right then because the big center table hadn't been reserved until later. We all really enjoyed the meal!
One of our favorite restaurants --our go-to restaurant.
Great food, lively atmosphere, and earnest service. My only quibble is that the place literally shut down on a weekend soon after the kitchen closed at eleven.
We had a great time but I was disappointed that there was no acknowledgement of a birthday when it was mentioned in the beginning.
Food was excellent as always, however, the server appeared to be in a bad mood and acted like our table was a bother. Not very friendly and/or conversational.
We reserved on Open Table and thus had to sit at the communal table. Not as bad as I thought though and kind of enjoyed the comeraderie. Food is tasty as usual but $4 for a couple of rolls is a little off the wall. Still would go again as we have been many times before.
The mussels are wonderful, with good portions. The noise level was low enough that we could converse, a benefit lacking in many restaurants. And the server was perfect - helpful, welcoming, funny, and gave wonderful suggestions as to menu items. We'll be back!
Fantastic as always!
Everything was great but noise level was awful
Outstanding. Presentation, variety of food choices, service, ambiance. From salad to flatbread to mussels to decadent chocolate brownie dessert.
Thank you for another fine meal and great service. We will be back soon as we were warmly welcomed.
We had a super sweet and knowledgeable server who offered suggestions upon request. The mussels, as always, were fantastic! (We had the New Orleans style) Overall, a great place to grab dinner and drinks with the girls!
Enjoyed the different foods and their presentation!
Lovely meal. Fantastic food.
Made a reservation for a birthday special occasion, so it was strange that we were seated right next to the kitchen in a more crowded area when other tables were free throughout the dining room- I would have thought that location would be better suited for diners without reservations. Nevertheless, the food and service were excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful, attentive without being overly so, and the presentation of the small plates was artful. I would recommend this place for pre-event dining downtown, gathering of friends, date or special occasion. Excellent food, service and presentation.
This was a great find. First time here and everyone in the group loved it. Great wine and beer menu. Outstanding specialty drinks. Something for everyone. Loved the beet salad and the salmon. The flat breads were amazing. When we arrived the staff was very friendly. We had a drink at the bar and enjoyed the bartenders humor. Once we were seated we had drinks and appetizers right away. The service was excellent.
A wonderful place. I can’t wait to go back!
We went for munchies & drinks after the Pops. The server was great but we were seated at a long bench that felt like we were at Denny’s. They were out of a few normal drinks.
Food was off the charts! The duck was so scrumptious and the beef was even better. Service great in spite of absolutely packed house. Fantastic. Makes me proud to be in Cincinnati.
Great mussels and flatbreads. Good service but a little hectic. Perfect for pre-pops shows at the Music Hall.
I come here for their mussels and the roasted beet salad, absolutely delicious!
We loved our meal at Zula. I own a restaurant in Seattle and found Zula to be one of my best meals so far in 2018. Highly recommended
Food was great and service was fantastic.
Tables in the front are to close together. They need to remove at least one table to make it less crowded and feeling like you are in top of the table next to you.
The food and cocktails were great and the wait staff was very attentive! I had made the reservation about 6 days in advance and we were seated at the bar area. The bar itself was very nice but it was a date night and wish that we would have been sat at a more intimate table or high top.
Really enjoy Zula’s. Perfect before the Symphony, Shakespeare. The mussels are fantastic.
Food was heavy and fattening with subpar flavors limited options for vegetarians. The only good thing we had were the eggplant fries and the wine. Service was awesome. Food was not good and especially bad for the price.
As always this place on of the best in OTR
Excellent food and vibes
TOO NOISY, SERVICE TOOK FOREVER ON A THURSDAY NIGHT, AND THERE ARE VERY FEW DECENT VEGETARIAN OPTIONS!
The mussels were amazing. We had the new Orleans. The side bread basket is a much to dip in your mussel juice. We had a salad that was nothing special about it, and the calamari was too chewy. If I was just reviewing the mussels and bread I would have given food 5 stars. Also great location if you going to music hall - just a block away
Always a great experience. Mussels, flat breads, salads, not a bad item on the menu
Amazing food and drinks! We split about 6 plates and each one that came out was better than the next. Could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely be returning!
The server was great! Our group of 8 was seated when we arrived. Our friends had a blast sharing the small plates. The flat breads are something you can’t miss. The private table was nice.
Awesome food and service.
A wonderful meal, great service, and a handsome bartender (Daniel) made our evening great.
This restaurant has the best mussels in town! Whenever we come we get the same thing - Thai mussels and flatbread to share.
