Ristorante Zebra Ratings and Reviews
Had a lovely dinner on a Monday night as part of a group of six. On Mondays they feature an excellent 3-course prix fixe menu for $35. Very good selection of appetizers and entrees. Also nice drinks and wine selection and very friendly service. We will go again.
We come to Ristorante Zebra every time we come to Rehoboth. Food and service are always excellent! Love to sit on the porch! Have been coming here for over 10 years. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. Have had pasta, meat, fish, salads, you name it. Never a disappointment.
We were supposed to be a table of 8 people, and our friends cancelled. I went on Open Table at 8:15 and was able to get a table for three the last minute. We requested outdoor seating and were accommodated within a few minutes. The food was excellent and the service was prompt, courteous and friendly. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, my wife had the Veal Marsala and my daughter had the chicken Milanese. This was the best dining experience of the three restaurants we dined in while in Rehoboth Beach, DE
We had a great meal; Buratto Salad always delicious, Grilled Avocado Salad with Salsa was way to spicy for us, so not loved. Scallops delicious and Prime Rib Special was wonderful as well. We passed on dessert as there was nothing creative or unique in its preparation- just the usual Italian dessert standbys.
Once again the same waiter gave us bad service and was not attentive to the table.
We saw him in the back of the restaurant smoking when he should have been paying
Attention to us. It's a shame this was my favorite restaurant but due to this happening a
Second time we will be going elsewhere.
I took my spouse to Zebra based on some online reviews I had seen. The service was absolutely terrible. The waitress had to come back to the table 3 times to ask again what we had ordered. She gave us bottled water that belonged to another table (we gave it back). The appetizers and entrees came at the same time a good 45 minutes after we ordered. Our waitress blamed the poor service on being overwhelmed with tables, but the place was not busy at all. On the upside, the food was very good. The hostess was also super nice, and when she saw what was going on (2 other tables around us had similar issues with service), she compt'd the meal. Hopefully, the issues we had were because of a single waitress and not representative of a typical experience.
This was our first time here and plan to return. Our server Rachael was awesome! She genuinely wanted to make our dinning experience one that we would remember. She hit a home run! The food was authentic and made perfectly.
I highly recommend Zebra for your next dinning experience
Zebra's is our go-to place in Rehoboth when we're looking for a more upscale dining experience. Tablecloths, impeccably dressed experienced waiters, fresh flowers, interesting decor, and background music are the extra touches that compliment the amazing food. We started with grilled avocado salad and cheese ravioli appetizers, followed by the fish special and lobster ravioli entrees, and finished with creme brulee and a memorable evening!
One of the few restaurants in Rehoboth Beach that takes reservations during summer season AND is actually very good. Consistently prepared Italian with great service and a nice wine menu. Importantly they will also prepare off menu items if you request and they are able - like veal parmigiana (which should be on their menu!!). A bit more expensive that some other restaurants in town but well worth it, especially if you have guests in town. Folks visiting this restaurant typically dress casual but nice and it adds to the ambience. Worth the visit.
Zebra has been one of my favorites due to the careful attention by the maitre' D Roberto Pereio His management skills and overseeing of his customers is second to known and make this restaurant a pleasure for any night and even better for that special occasion.
This restaurant has a wonderful porch and interesting interior. That's generally where it ends. Good appetizer borata w tomatoes and Caesar salad; passable pasta dishes ( been to Rome, not close). Snooty waiter and high prices make this a place we will not return to...
From the very start, service was awful. We were celebrating a birthday. They were out of champagne and brought a bottle of Processo with only two glasses for four people. Our appetizer order was lost and then one dish was forgotten when it finally arrived. One of the main dishes brought to the table was incorrect. The entire experience was bizarre!
No smoke and mirrors here. Honest review. You want to know the truth before you decide where you dine on vacation. Food was very mediocre. Overpriced for the quality vs quantity. Very dated and Bad Cocktail program. Wine list is a joke. If your looking for a great dining experience and quality food look elsewhere. For the price you pay, there are way better options.
We had reservations and no one greeted us. Multiple tables open but waited 10 minutes. Got seated and no service. No server, no menus, no water, no bread. 10 minutes to get water and the server did not bring menus. Also, no plates for the bread. Ordered chmpagne, no glasses were given. I can go on and on. Food was great which is why I'm giving more than 1 star.
My husband and I had dinner here on Friday evening. We liked everything about this restaurant. The food was excellent and the chef complied with my request for low salt. He made sure my meal had no extra salt added. Our server was efficient, pleasant and on the job of serving our table. My husband had the veal chop which was huge and quite delicious. I had the grilled scallops with vegetables and again it was great. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a gourmet meal.
The homemade pasta was delicious and the "app" portion was sufficient for the average appetite. Our server, Svetlana, was professional and attentive. Drinks and wine pours were generous. The only downside was the "Junglebook" decor left a lot to be desired, felt like a throwback to a forgone era that simply doesn't work anymore.
We'd never eaten here before. The food was good but not great but the service was terrible. We waited an unusual amount of time before a host appeared. Then he tried to seat us at a table that wasn't set. We waited a really long time before a waitress appeared. We had to ask multiple times for water. The food that was brought out was incorrect.
Food was very good. Service started out good but waned as the evening went on. We had to look for our waitress. Not sure what happened. In the end we received the wrong check which would have been a real issue since it was a lot more expensive than ours. Not kid friendly at all. No high chairs.
We have been to this restaurant many times. I have had special occasion dinners here and have also brought and recommended many people. This experience was not good. Our service
Was terrible. We felt forgotten about. The waiter was not attentive and he even had the nerve
To been seen smoking in the back while we were wondering where he was. We brought this to the attention of the woman at the desk but all she could do was apologize. With so many great
Restaurants in Rehoboth I will think twice about coming back. We paid a lot of money and were not treated very well.
Got off to a great start with a nice big table for nine. Disappointed with rest of night. Service wasn't consistent. Staff was not welcoming. Actually seemed indifferent that we were there. No cocktail list. Dinners came at different times. Offerings of grated cheese and ground pepper came several times during meal. One meal was overly salty. When I made the reservation and when they called to confirm I mentioned it was a birthday dinner. They confirmed that. But-No candle no cake. Nothing. Table next to us had a nice birthday piece of cake and candle. My daughter thought it was for her. We were just underwhelmed with the whole $550 experience.
At Zebra you can expect beautiful decor, outstanding food and mediocre service. I have been going there since they opened; my review is always the same. The server gave us the menus, took our order and totally ignored us. The food runner comes to the table -- "who had the xxx" Why don't you know that? Luckily we ordered the same entree so they easily figured out who had what. Want bread or the amuse -- you have to ask for it. Could I have a fork and knife? (not there when we sat down) You have to ask for it. Ask for the check -- of course, it's for another party and not ours. Finally they find the right check. The scallop dinner was out of this world great -- prepared and presented with perfection -- truly outstanding. Food stands on its own as the best in Rehoboth.
