Ziba's Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I had Cousins whom I've never met who were traveling through Atlanta and wanted to take me to dinner. Even though it was Valentine's day, I was able to get a reservation and be seated immediately. Our server was very friendly and informative about the menu and the drinks. We weren't "rush" to make our food selections and my cousins loved the food ! Such a great place for Grant Park!!
Great venue. The food and service were totally outstanding. We were seated promptly and waited on immediately. Very friendly and professional staff. We ordered drinks and received them in record time. Had the best drink of Maker's Mark I've had at any restaurant in the Atlanta area. We had the mussels in turmeric sauce---Wow! Crab cakes and the trout were excellent. Portions were generous with superb presentation. Parking is a limited; however, the prize is worth this small inconvenience. Looking forward to the next time.
Some of the prices were a little steep but there were several items that weren't wallet sters. The noise level is, thankfully, quiet and the decor is charming. The mussels were outstanding. Highly recommend that dish. Salads were huge and the server suggested a half size, which was more than adequate. We live in the neighborhood and for some reason put off going here, but we will be going back a lot more. It's so nice to find a restaurant that isn't loud and raucous. It's an intimate, lovely gem.
The food and service was outstanding! Normally, I would not have ordered fried food, but my guests ordered the empanadas for the table and they were unbelievably delicious. I had the salmon wrap and it was perfect. Not mediocre, as a lunch place can tend to get, but perfect. The only disappointment was that the restaurant was near empty on a Friday at lunch (we did start late...Around 1). What a gem! I will definitely return!
Ziba's never disappoints. My mom loves coming here for the mussels when she visits us. She tried the turmeric and it was quite tasty! The steak frites is my favorite thing on the menu. We finished our meal with a rosemary creme brûlée to die for. Our server was wonderful and very attentive making a good dining experience even better! We are certainly lucky to have a great spot like Ziba's in Grant Park!
Charming, friendly, interesting, very reasonable and deafening....reflective brick walls, large reflectiveplate glass windows, close to a noisy road, all in all way, way to loud and echoing environment. Otherwise great. Please reconsider the decor or listen to a noise specialist..OK for youngsters but very rough for us over 50. Hang curtains, put in some sound deadening ceiling tiles, do something!!!
This was my 4th visit to Ziba's and it didn't fail to meet my expectations. I love the relaxed atmosphere and sidewalk dining. It's a very comforting and unpretentious space. The mussels are to die for; if you love them, you must have them here. I also like the farfalle pasta with salmon. Yum. The drink and wine list is just right for pairing with a meal. Highly recommend this Grant Park neighborhood gem. It's wonderful.
We went for a family dinner with my boyfriends sister and her kids. They were really accommodating for the kids. Brought them a fruit plate without asking and plastic water cups. The waiter was great and the food was delicious. several of us ordered the specials and they were very tasty. The hummus was excellent. We ordered the mussels and they were not the best that I have ever had, but I have had good mussels here before. That is kind of hit or miss. Overall a great restaurant.
Stopped in on way through Atlanta, while vacationing. Was near our hotel. Saw the very favorable reviews on multiple websites. Was a darling neighborhood tapas bar in Grant Park! Many locals frequent, but in our opinion this place is also a destination place. The food was excellent. Lovely old building, kid friendly, no pay parking off main drag of Boulevard S E. Will go again. Loved the cocktails. Service was good and friendly! Can eat off tapas menu, or larger menu. Citrus salad and filet, ooh yeah! Rosemary creme brule out of this world. So was the bow tie pasta with salmon and spring peas. I wish we could have tried the weekend brunch.
We left because it was extremely hot. They lost there liquor license, we had no idea of that and that you could bring your own. We had a reservation, but were not seated. We were asked to sit at the bar until a table was open, but could only have water since they were not serving cocktails. We looked around the room and saw several tables open. We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. We will probably give them another chance. They must of been having a bad night.
Our first trip to Ziba's was very nice. But several months later, we returned with a guest from out of town and it was very disappointing. The room filled with smoke while we were sitting there, so a door next to us had to be opened, letting smoke out and the cool AC air, too. Also increased the street noise. There were three of us, each ordering an entrée, plus one appetizer to share. the appetizer never arrived and my plate was missing the entrée meat entirely. I was embarrassed because we had brought a guest from Amsterdam and wanted it to be special. oh well.
Very nice neighborhood eatery next to Grant Park. Menu is surprisingly varied with fish, salad and beef entrees, as well as lovely small bite appetizers. Cocktails definitely lived up to the hype-- tasty fresh juice and pleasantly mixed, with an ample pour of alcohol. Service attentive but, thankfully, not cloying. The miss of the fifth star is because in a foodie town like Atlanta this just wasn't outstanding. My dining companion said it perfectly: "if we weren't in the neighborhood, we probably wouldn't make the drive." It's not that there is anything bad about Ziba's, it's just that there are so many great neighborhood spots.
I took my folks to Ziba's on Saturday for my Mom's birthday. The server (bartender) was attentive and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. We had the mussels as an appetizer and absolutely LOVED them! We all got sandwiches as an entree and they, too were tasty. Thank you for the lovely meal - it was their first time there and they already want to come back! :)
This was a pleasant spot to end Valentine's Day. Comfortable in a 90's throwback kind of way. Ask for your salad dressing on the side, or you will finish your salad with a bit too much vinegar. The creme brulee had been bruleed in advance, so it didn't have that nice crisp sugar crust on top. The prices were fairly reasonable, and the setting was romantic. Not for edgy foodies, but we'll probably be back.
We recently went to Ziba's with a toddler and a small kid. Ziba's was extremely accommodating re: our children's food preferences (pasta with red sauce, which is not on the menu). The occasional verbal approval or disapproval sounds that little people make didn't bother the staff nor the guests. We loved it (and the food was awesome too (side note: the french fries were amazing!)).
So many great salads, small bites and larger bites! It's wonderful to find a locally owned place where the folks who run it are passionate about their restaurant. It is in a strip center with a tattoo parlor but don't let that stop you. Come on in. It is fabulous! The crafted cocktails are also delightful.
We parked around the corner in the not-the-best neighborhood ready for brunch! Guess what--NO BRUNCH. But it was all made ok by the wonderful specialty drinks and very tasty food. While it occasionally seems to be trying too hard, it does a good job of being a nice lunch spot. There is very little staff, but the ones you do encounter are very welcoming. I can't stress the spectacular-ness of the handmade specialty drinks enough. Hand squeezed juice and interesting combinations with the perfect balance of alcohol, mixers, and fresh garnish. Simply wonderful.
