    My date and I ordered a small pizza each. Mine was a margherita. It was good, but not great. We also ordered 3 drinks between us. Pre-tip, the meal was about $98. Not a death blow, but pretty pricey for what we ordered. Pros: good service, tasty food, nice ambiance Cons: Pricey and bit noisy I recommend the Terra de Oro Zin. It was delicious.

    We started with a Margherita pizza as an appetizer. They offer a starter size that is good for two, but perfect for a party of four. Delicious! My wife loved her shellfish with risotto and I really enjoyed a tagliatelle pasta with ground pork. Diana was our server, and she was delightful and informative. She made us feel right at home. We'll be back to try some of the other dishes soon.

    The kitchen was overmatched for the crowd last night for Father's Day. The quality and the cut of prime rib was poor. The pre-cooked (sous vide) method didn't work as my medium rare came out well done and the cut was about a quarter of an inch in thickness. Vegetables were overcooked and even their staple the mushroom chicken was overcooked. and I'm a regular.

    Father’s Day. It was good. I wish they had not removed some items from their menu like the pork chop and meatloaf. Our server was terrific. The fish was kind of dry, but everything else was great. We were their early enough it wasn’t too loud.

    We have been long-term (20+ yrs) customers of Zinfandel's and couldn't wait for the pandemic to end to once again, dine at our favorite restaurant. We returned earlier this year, around February, and learned they had a new chef and menu: missing were the pork chop and braised ribs. Today, it has a good selection of pastas and pizzas, a limited selection of appetizers, and the entrée menu is small. The entrées cover dining preference from vegetarian to meat, are limited, but maybe that's part of supply chain issues. After three dining adventures, the last of which was Sunday, we are giving Zinfandel's a rest for a while. The service continues to be excellent: attentive but not intrusive, timely but not over-bearing and always with a smile. We had the salmon with the curry sauce. My suggestion is not to be shy and let the curry flavor come out - it was so mild, we could barely taste it. The dinner was nice, but the menu is still gives us pause.

    Our first return visit in a couple of years. The experience was just average. Service was good but the menu is just too limited (just one fish entree?) and the dishes that we ordered were nothing special. Perhaps as other restaurants, still recovering from the shutdown.

    We have been coming to the Zinfandel Grille for many years and have always enjoyed it, considering it one of our favorite places. But the food of late is mediocre at best. Regarding this visit, the Caesar salad was warm, soggy and bland. The Marg pizza was also bland. The calamari was nice and crispy and the best part of the meal. The server was sweet but a bit overly attentive and somewhat intrusive at times and although friendly and chatty she was difficult to understand.

    I had the Salmon with curry sauce and it was awful. The sauce was on the bottom, below the rice and the salmon, so you couldn’t taste it at all. What I could scrape off the plate was bland. The salmon was seasoned well, but would have been over cooked had I not requested it to be medium rare. And the saffron rice was tasteless. I told them I was not happy with it (though didn’t ‘send it back’). I think they should have made an effort to compensate me with a free dessert or free bread, but they didn’t. Other meals were ok.

    Upscale (tablecloths, fully set tables, tasteful décor, calm ambience)? Quiet but not dead? Courteous greeting upon arrival? Really professional waiter? Food presentation and taste as from a 5-star chef?...........if this is what your looking for, look no more - it's right here!! My date and I talked about our delightful experience eating here, long afterwards.
