    Food service was extremely slow. Waiter came by several times and apologized for the "slowness". This was not the first time this happened. The last couple of times that we were there were similar situations.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday. The staff was extremely accommodating and were wonderful throughout the evening. Food wasn’t my favorite, I had the prawn dish. small things like the polenta which although perfectly creamy, had a strong chicken base flavor that almost overpowered the prawns which should have been the star. The brussel sprouts were cooked well, but overall the dish lacked acid and texture.

    The Oxtail Gnocchi was one of the best meals I've had in a long time! My Dad also really loved his Wild Boar Udon dish. Both seemed very expensive for the amount of food. Unfortunately our birthday guest was disappointed as her requested "very rare" New York was slightly pink. It was one of the most expensive items on the menu!

    Our server and the rest of the staff were amazing! The Cesar salad tasted like it was a bag salad from the grocery store and the mahi mahi was way over cooked. Bread pudding was a bit hard. The ribeye and my pear cocktail was great. Wish there were more available options for wines by the glass. For our $250 meal, I wish there wasn’t football on tvs

    I didn’t expect the prices to be very high I guess I should have studied the menu before hand but a friend told me she use to dine at Zinfandel Grill regularly but she didn’t tell me it’s been awhile The waiter started ok but he didn’t come around to check on us The buss boy did My husband and I had shrimp pasta,a pizza, Caesar salad a couple of lemon drops to drink Our bill was $152 with tip tax and 3% service charge. We didn’t have any meat dishes it was very expensive. Yeah sorry We’re disappointed

    We went to the restaurant for Christmas Eve dinner. The appetizer beet crostini was very tasteless no seasoning. The entree was the pot roast with polenta, the meat was tender but dry it needed a gravy or sauce. The dessert pistachio cake was excellent but the chocolate cake was very dry. The price for the meal was overpriced what what we received

    it was extremely cold inside the restaurant; we never took off our heavy jackets and we were not near a door. Also the shrimp pasta dish was ridiculously overpriced. But I will say the service was good despite how busy the restaurant was.

    We ordered 5 meals. The steak was amazing. Shrimp pasta, delicious. Odín noodles pretty good. Beet fettuccine was not good but was editable. Hamburger was unseasoned and gross, my son couldn’t even eat it. Which means 2/5 meals were not good.

    We enjoyed the $60 per person prix fixe dinner (kale salad, pasta, steak and a bottle of wine)...the restaurant was jamming when we first arrived (6pm), and was moderately noisy throughout our meal, though not enough to spoil the evening. Service was professional and timely. My only disappointment was that the prix fixe menu stated the Pinot Noir (Meomi, Central Coast) was a 2018 vintage, but the server brought a 2021 to the table, and seemed to not know why we would question the vintage. We continue to be big fans of Zinfandel Grille, but might consider a different tack on the wine pairing (take the included bottle home and order something else from the wine list?)...

The half size salad was perfect for lunch. The chocolate cake for dessert was amazing! Highly recommend this restaurant. Definitely want to try other dishes.
