We typically love this place. Server was not as seasoned as previous servers we have had.
When I asked about the specials she said let me get your drink order I told her I'm drinking wine and my choice would determine a red or a white wine
Then when explaining them she said ragu and I asked rabbit because I had it before and it was fabulous and she said no it's bird or fowl
So I went with one of my favorites the pistachio encrusted halibut she told me that the halibut was not in season and it was replaced with grouper but assured me it was just as good as halibut so I ordered that.
Later I heard a waiter someone we have had before who's excellent explaining the specials and when he explained the ragu he EXPLAINED it in detail and stated it was pheasant I LOVE PHEASANT I would of ordered that and the grouper was not as good as halibut and when I told her that she said oh I've never had it😧
She was pleasant and all just needs some work to be at the level we are typically used to at Zarletti,s

I did check "kid-friendly" but wouldn't say it is always kid-friendly. I did take my two boys (6/9) there. The restaurant was very accommodating to the boys but I can see that this is not a place for children during busy hours. The restaurant did not have a kids menu but the boys split a dish of the pasta bolognese and loved it. The "adult" meals were amazing as well and will certainly be going back.

Went for my birthday. Looked at reviews online & chose it for the halibut and the proximity to the Marcus. The halibut was disappointing as it was overcooked. We also had 2 children and they didn't offer anything different then their main menu so that was a disappointment. Felt slightly deceived with their half off wine sale that ended that day. We ordered a $55 bottle of wine off the menu as recommend but when the bill came it was really a $110 bottle of wine. More then shocked at the bill. Positives - it was a fun experience for our family and I would say it would make a nice date night. The waiter was very attentive - thanks Skip.

Very attentive waiter but not in the least overbearing. Knowledgable. Did not rush our table at all. All selections were very good. Especial loved the veal shank.
Would recommend to a friend. Valet parking is available

We wanted to take our adult children out as a thank you. Zarletti is their favorite restaurant. The seating area is small, they utilize every inch of space. The restaurant is very noisy, but keep in mind we are seniors so the noise may be more tolerable for the youth. Very hip and trendy. Everyone was in black, white or gray, even the staff.
My husband and son-in-law had the hailbut which had good flavor but was a little soggy from the sause. I had the lamb which came cold. The kitchen threw it back into the pan to heat it up. It came back hot but of course over-cooked. My daughter had the veal shank which was very rich and tender.
Three of the four before dinner drinks were fine (wine and vodka on the rocks). The dirty martini was only smudged.
There was a woman in a wheel chair in the restaurant. She entered by a door on the street level. I would suggest informing the restaurant when making reservations so they can be prepared.

This was my second visit in two weeks. Love the food, but for the second time, was seated at very back in a corner, banquette table for 2. In both instances, there was a loud group within arm's length...will not go back if I get that table again...there were other tables empty!

Disappointing food. The butternut squash ravioli was swimming in butter. The pasta was thick and doughy. The squash had little flavor. Wish we had gone to Il Mitos instead. Grossly over-priced. Wouldn't go there again.

The food and service was outstanding. Attention to detail at every level when you walk in the door until you leave. I do not mind spending money, but I also have high expectations. The food and service exceeded my high expectations. They have a new customer. I can only say, thank you.

From our seat at the bar, to our seat at the table, I was impressed with the knowledgeable and professional staff we encountered during our diner at Zarletti. The food was good, albeit a touch heavier than I expected. Overall, this was a good dining experience and I look forward to returning.

The food was outstanding, and the service was among the best my friends and I have experienced. (I believe our server was named Curt.) His knowledge of the menu, and ability to make recommendations to our table of first time diners was impressive. From his dinner suggestions to his drink suggestions, we were all well-satisfied! We will definitely return again. Well done!

Another pre-theater meal which offered exceptional food combined with attentive and friendly service from one of the restaurant's best servers, Matt. Our server, aware of our fondest for the seasonal butternut squash ravioli (hand-made) with brown butter sage sauce, secured the off menu starter from the kitchen...they are delightful! The entire meal was fantastic, the wine a superb accent, and the experience outstanding in every regard.

Zarletti downtown is one of our favorite restaurants. Service is impeccable and the staff are all very friendly. This is the kind of place you can dress casually, but also "dress up." The food is always excellent. We like it because my wife is vegetarian and me too, although I eat fish occasionally. I got the halibut, which was excellently-prepared and served.

My pork chops came out completely undercooked. They actually removed my meal from the bill. The service was good but the food was sub-par. Probably won't go back again. It was a disappointing date night for my wife and I.
