worst restaurant experience ever. i have never written a restaurant review before but felt compelled to warn other people. this was the worst dining expereince i've ever had. the atmosphere was depressing, waitstaff was clueless, and the food was AWFUL. everything was oversalted and tasted unfresh. i think our waiter and chef were the same at one point. the only other people dining here were high school kids before some special event. this was on a weekend night. i do not know how this place stays open. i think the positive reviews here were planted.
Terrible food and Service!. Food was so terrible! I will never EVER return to this place. I wonder about the chef here! Don't go there for food. You will regret it so much!! Everyone on the table had a terrible dish! I regret that I paid for the food! I'm extremely surprised to see that this place got a good review! This restaurant needs to reconsider their chef!!!
worst service i have ever experienced!!!!. i have never been treated so rudely in my life!! my prom gorup and i went to zula's for prom dinner which is suppossed to be one of the best nights of your life. first of all we had reseved a private room but when we got there they forgot to set it up. then they told us that they would not split our check for a group of 22.. the wouldnt even split it in half. when we made the reservations we were told that we would not have a set menu but when we got there a set menu was on the table... after speaking to the OWNER about theses mistakes we were told we could order anything off the set menu and only be charged for what we ordered (the full set menu price was $40 and not the whole group wanted to pay that)... no one ever took our drink orders they assumed we wouldall be happy with water.. when the food finally came each half of the table got their food at different times(one side would be eating salads while the other would have their main course)... then we were handed a check for around $600 and we were fine with that we all paid our part...then over half an hour later the manager gave us a new check for over $700 dollars... we were outragged and asked them to honor the first check but they refused... the manager then got mad at us for asking him to honor the first check and walked away from us, locked the doors, and treatened to call the police if we didnt sit down... i have never been so disrespected in my life... i ended up paying $60 for a piece of chicken they charged us over the set menu price... one girl in the group only ordered mac n cheese and french fries and she paid $40... even those of us who did order dessert never got it...
This review is so untrue. This group came in with no reservation and were about 22 guests. At the end of the meal, they refused to pay for gratuity and we had explained to them that we will need to add 20% gratuity to all party larger than 6. The manager tried but could not able to calm them down. The bill was $600.00 for 22 guests ( each guest were paid less than $30.00 included drinks and dessert) No one ever paid $60 as stated.
Had a Blast for my Birthday. My friends and I decided to try some place new to eat and celebrate my birthday . I checked out some of the reviews on citysearch and found Zula. The same evening, we decided to try it, instead of our usual spots. I am so glad we did! It was a group of 19 and the restaurant did a fabulous job w/the drinks& food! All of my friends really enjoyed waht they ordered & the service was great. I chose this place b/c of the reviews ( both possitive and negative) it got on Citysearch, but the great help & service over the phone won me over! They were very accomodating & it was totally no hassle. I HIGHLY recommend Zula .
Horrible!!! Will never go back!. First of all we made reservations for Valentine's day my fiancee and I, it was $80.00 per person, which we were will to pay for great food and service. Service when we arrived was horrible, we were sat at our table and left there for 15 min without at least someone taking our drink order or something. Finally they came and took the drink order i ordered a Apple Martini, they came back with something that taste like lemonade???? I told him i'm not sure what that is, but it's not a apple martini, no alcohol at all. The waiter said okay i will get you another one i'm sorry, this time i will have the bartender make it. I'm thinking hmmmm.....did the bartender not make that last one??? He comes back and it's pretty much undrinkable from too much alcohol like the bar tender was trying to be smart or something. We did that one more time and i finally just gave up on the drink. Next we're still waiting our food it's been about 30min since we ordered and people who came in after us had already gotten their first course ( it was a 4 course meal). He decides to just bring our first and second out together because they forgot to bring out our salad. Worse service. And to top it off the food was horrible as well. I would never recommend this place to anyone i know. Waste of money.
Classy place in Houston
I recently dined here with my family and I was very impressed by the food, ambience, and service. The menu was very impressive with many choices from seafood to steaks. I had the grilled shrimp pasta for a starter and it was great. Overall this is a very nice restaurant and i would recommend it to anyone from a group, to a couple or family with kids.
Downtown Best Kept Secret.
Amazing Service and delish Seafood!
I recently met friends for some dinner and drinks at Zula Restaurant after work for happy hour and had a wonderful experience. Our waiter was really helpful on what to order since we'd never been so I tried the Salmon Ravioli and Wedge Salad. The food was so fresh and delish!! The atmosphere is idyllic for a nice post-work cocktail to relax-I felt like I was on a little getaway! I would highly recommend this spot if you enjoy a nice service, great food, great drinks and a beautiful atmosphere. This is my new fave spot!
Awesome Restaurant!. My wife and I recently made the transition from Los Angeles to Houston. Our first two nights, before moving into our new place. were spent in a nearby midtown hotel. Our second night, after much needed rest, was to be an " out of town night/exploration" of the area. The hotel conciege ( a very cool, gracious and down to earth young woman) insisted on Zula Restaurant. The food was VERY good ( my wife used, "Rocked") The ambiance reminded my wife IMMEDIATELY of places she use to frequent in Vegas... I shared the same sentiment, but from a different coastal perspective. It was our second night in town and that sealed it for us. Food (10) Service (10) Ambiance (10) Can't wait to come back
Best Restaurant in Downtown of Houston. I have been to Zula restaurant twice this year already and everytime go there , we have a such a wonderful time and make us come back again. The food, service and vibes are excellent and different from all other downtown or midtown restaurants. I dont know why people left hungry? dont know why people said the rest rooms were dirty, it was fine to us at the time, Well, Zula is not an one plate dish fills you up place. it is more like a fine dining restaurant you go there to order appetizer, main and dessert plus cocktail and wine. so I dont you to expecting to go there to get an over potions one meal south style dish and sprit the dish with friend. We love to go there for Thursday 1/2 price wine deal night! They got a great wine selection too.
run in the OTHER DIRECTION!. i went out with my friends over the weekend to this place, i didnt have a very good experience. originally the waiter that was waiting me was VERY RUDE! my friends are I were just talking amongst ourselves and we were getting loud because we'd been drinking and the waiter so rudely comes to us and says "baby your too loud" as if he'd asked us to keep it down a few times before. We called for the manager and had the waiter switched, the manager was awesome. the food however was not, i ordered the flattened chicken it was supposed to have cheese on it but you could tell it was valvetta for almost a 20$ meal without drinks i'd have better gotten real cheese...the only decent at this place is the manager and cheesecake but for 7$ your better off at cheesecake factory its a dollar less and doesnt taste like it came from the forzen isle at walmart
