Zula Bistro & Wine Bar
Service was friendly and efficient
Food was delicious. What’s not to like?

Always a great experience!
Love Love Love Love LOVE ZULA!!!!!!
FABULOUS EVERY TIME!!!!!!!
One of our ALL TIME FAVS!!!!!!!
We tried three different dishes. The taste was incredible and the presentation a perfect balance of color, arrangement, and texture. Wow!
Great food, great ambience and great prices considering how much food you get!
Very good service, good ambiance. Very good kale salad. Some other dishes are just okay. Mussels is the way to go here. Nice drink selections too.
Zula is hands down the best restaurant in Cincinnati! Always something different you can choose if you go frequently. We do! But my favorites are the tuna crudo and the beef carpaccio for appetizers. Mushroom flatbread is sooo good. Owner is also the chef and that makes all the difference. Vic is a culinary genius. You will never have a bad meal there.
I really appreciate the fresh and delicious food. You're restaurant provides an upscale experience without all the pretence. My dining partner and I had a conversation about how a lot of fancy restaurants including steakhouses, provide subpar sides. I've never had a bad meal at Zula!
The service is top notch. Had a few mistakes, but the chef tasted remade apologized and still was an amazing meal. More importantly, great experience
Hostess was quite rude and the spaces are cramped in some areas. Very loud. But the food was excellent!!!
Great experience. The place is a little cramped. Food was fabulous and drinks were awesome.
We wanted to have dinner Tuesday night made a reservationwe showed up and the where closed what a disappointment whe where staying in cinci and it ruined our night.
Everything was Amazing. We had reservations and our table wasn't ready yet so we decided to go to the bar. We had great service and really enjoyed our experience there as much as we have before at a table.
great place, great food. the best restaurant in the city
Excellent food and wine list. Presentation, flavor, service was all very good. Social distancing and safety was also great. I hope to go back again soon.
Really great selection of fish and vegetarian options. Super impressed w execution and the wine menu is a gem. Excited to go back!!! The tuna tartar and beet salad are a must try. If they are featuring schwarma with chicken or cauliflower I highly suggest! Great addition to the downtown scene in Cincinnati.
Amazing food! Wonderful atmosphere! We have been here before and always enjoyed our time but the meal this time was easily in my top 10 of all time, anywhere!
Food and wine was great
It’s always excellent at ZULA. Never had a bad meal there. Vik knows how to run a great restaurant. It is a Cincinnati treasure.
Great great great food! Everything was delicious and we were seated in a very safe, spacious, COVID friendly area. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Great dinner. Accommodations for COVID were excellent and comfortable. Mussels and flatbreads were great.
Incredible experience and impeccable service!!
It was a little tight for the seating. I know it was due to the Covid safety, but not the greatest. We felt like we were too tight
Food was fantastic! We ordered the charred calamari, Spanish mussels and the Spanish flatbread; all were delicious!
We love everything about Zulas! - the food, wine, ambiance, service, location....
No better place in OTR to have dinner and drinks. My wife and I have been coming here for years, and can't imagine a better place to go. It is, by far, our favorite. We highly recommend this restaurant!
We had a wine tasting before dinner, and it ran long, so we had to push our reservation back 45 minutes. Zula accommodated is beautifully.
We just shared some small plates, and ate quickly before the 10:00pm curfew on a Thursday night.
The atmosphere was buzzing. Our waitress. Jamie, was top-not h. Vic, the owner was jovial as usual, visiting at a table with guests.
I thoroughly enjoy Zula, and it never disappoints.
Great food and nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
Wonderful time at ZULA. Great food /great service.
Love this place.
Outstanding doesn't begin to cover it! Zula has quickly become our favorite restaurant in Cincinnati...by a mile! We are very much foodies and have a hard time finding restaurants that give us the dining experience we are looking for. We usually end up making excuses for why the food isn't what it could or should be. I was impressed from the first time I read the menu. I knew this chef knew what he was doing. But his execution is truly impressive! From the many amazing mussel preparations (the Spanish is our favorite!), to the tuna crudo which is heavenly, to the beef carpaccio which is a perfect blend of flavors and textures, to the light, crispy flatbread that we were told takes three days to prepare, every element was more enjoyable than the last! We love the ambiance and the fact that Vik's family works together makes it feel like home. Spread the word, Zula is a gem!!
Another good experience.
We shared the beet salad, the roasted mushroom flatbread and of course mussels.
One of my absolute favorite places in town. You can’t go wrong with the Louisiana style muscles and your choice of favorite flatbread. There is something about the ambience and consistency in quality of this restaurant that keeps drawing me back for more.
Always a great meal!
Amazing food and a great evening with friends!
Excellent service! This is a family run restaurant with everyone being extremely professional while paying close attention to keeping everyone socially distanced! We met the father (owner), the mother, two sons and a daughter - all working on Christmas Eve! We can't wait to come back - perfect!!!
We went here on Christmas eve and were pleasantly surprised by the meals. The food was well made and delicious, and the service staff was amazing. We will be coming here again.
Lots of choices and ll are pretty darn good
Great food and drinks with exceptional service!
Like most restaurants, the dishes were over-seasoned (e.g., charred calamari salty and had double the sauce needed. Food should be dressed, not saturated).
