Larger chain restaurants should take a few pointers from Zach's!! – In a world full of boring, loud, overpriced chain restaurants it's nice to have a place like Zach's which reminds us of the way a restaurant experience SHOULD be. Every time I go not only am I greeted happily, but I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get a table. The inside is very welcoming and quaint, and the patio area is amazing. Once you have been seated, they will bring you endless baskets of garlic-cheese rolls.....I have been known to have cravings for these when I haven't gone in a while. The menu has something for everyone!! From Cheese Ravioli, to Thai Chicken Pasta, to Mussels, to Debbie's Favorite Pizza (I can't begin to tell you how delicious this one is); I have never had anything at Zach's that I did not like. If you get a salad, I recommend their House Italian Dressing.... they make it from scratch and it is sooooo delicious. I was going to rent the entire restaurant to celebrate my parent's 30th wedding anniversary but the date I needed was not available. I was very sad, but I would definitely use Zach's for any future party I may need. All in all.....I LOVE ZACH'S!!!
If you want a loud, overpriced, impersonal dining experience, try any chain restaurant.
If you want ambience, delicious food, great service, and a reasonable bill go to Zach's.
The perfect LA get away, in LA – I've been coming to Zach's for over 10 years and have nothing but praise for this little hideaway. Besides having the most delicious never-ending cheese rolls, the rest of the menu is amazing and extroidinarily reasonable. I am shocked anyone would say this place is expensive in a world of Buca di Beppos and Maggianos. The wait staff is always friendly and, having waited tables myself, they are as attentive and quick as any place I've ever been. You get back what you put out and this restaurant definitley shines. You can even reserve the whole place for a private function! I had a surprise birthday party with fifteen guests and the bill was less than $300 with tip! Bring your own wine for a small corkage fee or try one of the wait staff's suggestions. You can not go wrong by trying this place out for lunch or dinner. Thursday night has the most amazing cream of broccoli soup you'll ever try! Do not pass this place up! Believe me, you'll love it!
Terrible service+semi-decent food=NO GO – 3/19/05. we start out by not seeming to have a server as he took over 10 minutes to come over to our section. he took the order of the people who came in AFTER us, who were served 10 minutes BEFORE us. he came once to see how we were doing, never showed again. 15 minutes after we finished, the busboy came to take our plates. when i said i wanted to take my leftovers home, the bus boy brought me a box to do my own wrapping up. still no sign of our server. i complained to the manager, who took the more expensive entree off of our bill and assured us that he would speak to the server. i was far from convinced by that timid little man. the food was semi-decent and overpriced, and the terrible service will guarantee that i never return.
Really, really bad – My wife and I ate here about a year ago. We thought it was bad and vastly overpriced, but we just gave it another chance. Our first impressions were correct. The only thing decent here is the rolls.
a night of magic fun and good food – Wonderful place, reasonable prices, and Dont miss Tuesday Nights their is always a magician who will astound and delight you and your children.
More Bread Please! – Zach's is amazing! I'm sorry it took me so long to try it, but my husband and I had one of the best dinner experiences ever here! The chicken ravioli is to-die-for. I ate it up so fast that the waiter couldn't believe his own eyes. Exceptional service, cozy atmosphere, and an extensive menu makes Zach's my new #1 regular restaurant to visit when I'm craving great Italian dishes. They even brew their own pale ale, which must be good because they sold out! Did I mention the warm rolls with melted mozzarella in the center? Ten million thumbs up!
Great little gem – Tucked away off Ventura Blvd, you've got a garden atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, at good prices. REmains a solid favorite of mine even though I've moved to the other side of the valley by now. :)
