"This place is fabulous for a Friday night get together with your girlfriends or your family. They have an extensive happy hour drink menu that goes until 7 o'clock. Chicken fettuccine was a great choice for an entrée they also have great appetizers like fried green tomatoes. I love this place."

"I have been coming here for a long time and even though I don't normally write reviews, I should write one for Z Cafe. The food is consistently good, the service is so friendly, I always feel good at this place. I feel like they really care to make me happy. The prices are good, the drinks are fantastic, lately I have been ordering the Moscow Mule in the copper cop :)
It's best to make a reservation before you go on a Friday night. They tend to get booked up on Friday nights. Also they sometimes have private parties on Saturday nights, so reserve your table before you go. They have a couple of T.Vs and they normally show the Warriors games, A's , Raiders, Niners etc. We have always enjoyed going here and our wallet is not broke :)

"We were early for our reservation but our table was ready. Very very friendly staff. I had the grill glazed salmon, loved it. My friend ordered the ribs and a side of fries. He was loving it and licking his fingers, lol
I ordered a pint of draft beer and he got the mojito. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced.

"The food was very good - they make a great hamburger, but the service was downright annoying. We were trying to have a conversation and every few minutes a different staff person interrupted to see if everything was OK. I'm used to someone doing it once, or skipping it all together if they see the customers are talking, but this was ridiculous. Then they started grabbing our plates before we were finished. It wasn't busy there. I think the serving staff must be new and inexperienced."

"There was a large party with a bunch of small children in the main room. Fortunately they seated our group in a small side room that was much quieter. They have a beautiful bar that, with the right crowd, would likely be a nice place to hang out. The selection of cocktails was impressive."

"My husband and I dined here for the first time at the early end of the dinner hour on Valentine's Day. The cocktails were good and the set menu options looked promising.
The appetizer was bacon-wrapped scallops - these were quite good, although presentation was mediocre.
The salad course included a greens, beet, and blood orange with a nice vinaigrette dressing, good but not outstanding.
For entrees, my husband had the strip steak that was on the set menu, I substituted the lobster ravioli from the regular menu. It was nice to be able substitute the entree.
The steak was not prime meat, my husband rated the overall meal a B-.
I enjoyed the lobster ravioli, it was quite good.
The dessert was also good.
Overall, a edible meal, but not great. Lots of better restaurants out there.
However, the ambience was interesting due to the location in part of an older building with a car dealership in the other part.
Probably won't return.

"I have always come here for lunch and ordered the crab sandwich which I love. I tried it for dinner last week and was happily surprised to enjoy a large ceasar salad with real anchovies and a good size juicy pork chop. Combined with a great cosmo this is my new go to restaurant.
Price was right and service was friendly.

"Z Cafe and Bar was a wildcard in our exploration of new restaurants during the Oakland Restaurant Week. Given their sharing of a building with a Nissan dealership, our expectations weren't set on high. We were seated expeditiously and got our beverages within 5 minutes of arrival. Then we sat for 30 minutes until the host brought our entrees; we pointed out that we hadn't gotten salads/bread. The salads looked unprepossessing--organic field greens and cherry tomatoes, but the dressing was delicious and judiciously applied just right. One of us had glazed salmon, the other eggplant parmigiana. Both of us were practically purring with the quality of the food. The eggplant was particularly delicious-- baked rather than fried, truly delicious. Would we return because the food is good? Oh, yes. Would we make sure that we got timely service ? You betcha. Since the host (owner) was so active in getting food to diners, it's completely possible that we dined on an off night as far as service was concerned. The food was really good."

"My wife and I wanted to try out a new restaurant and the Z Café was one of the restaurants offering special deals during the Restaurant Week. The location on Broadway Auto Row is easy to find and we found street parking close by. The restaurant is medium sized with a well-stocked bar and a couple of TVs with sporting events playing. The tables are widely spaced and the ceiling is high, so the noise level is low. The service is the best we have ever had a restaurant -ever. We had at least 5 different people checking on us throughout the dinner. We felt very pampered. The food was very good with reasonable prices and good portions. The bread pudding I had for dessert was very tasty. We will definitely return."

"They have a ton of options and everything that our party of seven ordered was cooked to perfection and delicious! The wait staff was that excellent balance of professional and warm and the owner checked in on us to ensure we were having a great dining experience. The prices were mid-level for what I consider upscale cuisine."
