Angry Camper – Ate lunch there yesterday. Paid with debit (I did not read reviews previously......Someone else took me there.)
Charged more to my debit than I authorized. I wouldn't suggest paying cash, I would suggest not going at all.
If they will cheat people like this......what else are they doing behind the scenes that one does not know about?????
Fantastic – Im going to start off and say we complain about gratuity, wait time etc. First of all at Any restaurant there is a gratuity of 5 or more..there Is going to be a wait for your food with any large party. If u go out to eat then u expect & know that.. Zydeco is great the food is delicious yes there is a wait b/c your food is made to order for those of u that know what that means. The service & the entertainment was wonderful so I'm unsure where the other complainers went. I jus learned in life u can't please everyone so with that being said Zydeco keep doing what u all are doing!!!!I will be returning with more family & friends!!! & FYI we payed with our credit/debit card and had noooo problems!!!!
It was my birthday!! – Thank you so much for all your help Pam you are the greatest.
Well since the gratutity is already added because it was five of us that may be the reason that my waitress told me to hurry she has another table, can I just come back to take your order. Then my spice cajun salad has the juice from the sauteed meat and onions which caused my lettuce to wilt. Rude!! Rude!! Waitress wasn't working for a tip she already had it so it didn't matter how rude she was. Also I had to ask for my glass to be refilled.
It was my birthday and I was treated like it wasn't....
Unbelieveable – I had visited the establishment twice before and had good service. I was there on Friday, July 1, 2011, to celebrate a promotion.
The waiter was horrible, he didn't check on us once the beverages were brought, we had to get some one else to get him. He did not come and take the orders of the new people once they arrived. The food took 45 minutes and then the orders were wrong.
Here is the best part at the end of the night after bad service, bad food. To add insult to injury he claimed he couldn't split the bill, it was $400.00 for 9 people. After I yelled at him, he than said that the bill could be split. He just didn't want to would be to much and to time consuming to do. So one of my guests ended up standing beside him to tell him how to split the bill.
Don't go to this restaurant if the plan is to have a good time. The table across from came 45 minutes after we did and received their food, but than had the same issue regarding the bill.
Don't eat here!!!!!
Great Food-Slow service – First I don't understand the 10 buck cover charge??I mean we waited forever to eat and there was nothing complimentary for the cover charge.
However-our waitress,Alisha, was very courteous and reassuring that this wasn't an every night thing,thumbs up to her.
BUT once we got our dinner-we forgot about the waiting-DELICIOUS....this is real food-nothing from a microwave-hats off to the cooks and our waitress-oh yeah the drinks were great also,they were not watered down.Overall a good place to take a date.We had the jumbalaya,salmon and grits,ribs,macn cheese,collard greens..of course we all sampled each others meal! Got to try it!!!
Protect your DEBIT/CREDIT CARDS (USE CASH ONLY) – My debit card was charged twice and they would not refund my $. Only use cash...you have been WARNED!!!!
The service was also SLOW as hell!!!
The food was good but not worth paying double for....
Be Careful – This place has great food and great live music. Fun atmosphere and great bartenders. HOWEVER, warning: I went there with a friend and both of used checking account debit cards. Both of us were victims of phishing attacks on our accounts. Seems more than coincidental that both of had our cards compromised at the very same time after we both went there.
Still a fun place...but I would recommend using cash only.
Good Service, Great Food! – Our experience at Zydaco's was outstanding. Their service was speedy and our waitress, Robin, was friendly, gregarious, and gave excellent menu suggestions. Our cocktails, appetizer, entrees, and desert were seasoned perfectly. If I downgraded them on anything it would have to be the music and the noise level. I was expecting Zydeco music and they played R&B (nothing against R&B, just not what I was expecting). And it was very loud inside even before the live band started, making it difficult for dinner conversation.
We plan to go back the next time we are in town!
Good date spot – The food was good.The live music was great.The drinks where not the watered down stuff you get other places.I just wish they had more seating around the stage. I also wish the dinner came with some kind of dinner role and salad
Best Cajun Food in Raleigh – My wife and I went the restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We were thoroughly pleased with the service and the food was great. We started out with the crab dip and it was delicious. For the entree, we had the New Orleans Pasta Seafood and Cajun Fried Catfish. Both were splendid. We finished up with some of the bread pudding. I can taste it now! If you want a nice night out, this is the place to go.
