As a restaurant, being around for 10+ years is no small feat. Here's to another 10 bc Zealous is amazeballs.

Bitter Taste – A better suited name for this restuarant might be unenthusiastic or spiritless. The less than zealous service overshadowed the overpriced and overly trendy entrees. Even with reservations there was a wait, the server was not attentive of helpful with selections, the food was good, but not amazing. The waiter gave us our bill before asking if we wanted dessert, thus leaving us with a bitter taste.

This is another trendy resturant that has some customer service issues..."The Customer is Always Right".

We do not plan to return anytime soon.

Don't Bother – After reading the reviews on Zealous I was interested in sending my managers there for a business dinner. I was suprised at the positive reviews on Citysearch after the horrible experience of bad food and service that my manager had upon closer inspection I realized that the positive reviews are written in the same 'tone'. Obviously written by employees trying to take advantage of Citysearch. There are some amazing restaurants in this city, this is one that I won't be dissappointed to see go out of business.

Ho hum... not so good.... not going back – Very mediocre on most levels. Pretty decent wine list, but food preparation is too heavy handed with the sauce, and staff was neither knowledgable nor particularly gracious. Not going back.

Needs some cellar time – Ever sit in a restaurant and find yourself fighting the urge to help out? There's a few things zealous does right and many more it needs help with. The food is good, on it's way to being great. The staff is courteous, but green. And the wine selection is impressive, but the wine pairings shouldn't be what's left open at the bar. The owner is real and approachable which gives zealous some hope. But, it needs some cellar time to mature and achieve the respect it's current price point requires.

Unbelievably BAD! – Went to Zealous for my birthday - had read mixed reviews, but was unprepared for what can be rated the worst expensive dining experience I've ever had. The food was ill-prepared, the restaurant interior was dirty and shabby, and the servers were completely unprofessional. Very disappointing.

Incredible Food, Excellent Service – We had a great dinner at Zealous. Everything was perfect from the service to the presentation to the quality of the food. Delicious dinner and dessert.
