We loved our evening at Zola. First time, although we knew the chef from his days at Marche. Overall really nicely done starting with the front of the house, excellent wine list, knowledgable and friendly service and wonderful cooking - what I would describe as French comfort food with a California cuisine nuance here and there. We especially liked the non-traditional somewhat spicy approach to sashimi, the gnocchi of ricotta and the unadulterated style of steak tartare. Looking forward to returning soo.

Celebrating birthdays. Food was good. I’m glad we got an early reservation so it was quieter during our starters. It got very loud after that: hard to talk, hard to hear.

This was our first visit to Zola, an we wondered why we had not been there before. Beautifully balanced food. My husband had the seafood stew, with scallops, mussels, and calamari, and could not stop raving about it. I had the tomato tart. This was flavorful and beautifully presented. It is always a pleasure to find a serious restaurant that takes as much trouble with its vegetarian dishes as with the other dishes. Yes it is expensive, bu worth it.

Zola is fantastic! The service is fun and friendly, the food is thoughtful and delicious, the wine list is perfect, and the price is right. My new favorite restaurant on the Peninsula.

The food was similar to Bird Dog, around the price range you would expect.
They don't have any cocktails, which was a bit disappointing.
My pain point was with the waiter. I walked into Zola with a reservation. The first greeting I got was a very aggressive "What do you need?" from the waiter in the front. I was a bit taken back... And there was not a single smile from the waiter the whole night. It got better at the end when. I assume the owner, came over to give us the dessert menu...
Probably won't go again, will just go back to Bird Dog or Flea Street instead.

As always Zola did not disappoint. We chose to eat appetizer size dishes and everything was exquisite. The waiter was very attentive and the food came in a timely fashion. The Kir drinks were very tasty and the wine selection good. A good option for a date, but make reservations well in advance - it’s worth the wait!

We really enjoyed our meal at Zola. First time. celebrating a birthday. The hostess and waiter were very attentive and even gave me a birthday card!
We like to have several appetizers rather than a main course.
The waiter recommended having the Duck Fat Pommes Paillasson with the Smoked local cod.
The Pommes are fabulous and were terrific with the smoked cod. Do not miss those!
The campagne terrine was good and started our French meal off on the right note.
Walter the waiter also recommended having the Ricotta Gnocchi as this is one of their signature dishes.
This did not disappoint.
adding in a beautiful French Syrah St Joseph 2017 (fresh bacon notes) and chocolate mousse with espresso bean crunch on top rounded out a very special meal.
plan on spending a lot on wine.
would visit again. One request is to have soft baguette as well as the crunchy levain being offered as it the crunchy bread isn't always conducive for grabbing all the sauce and hard on the teeth!

Service was great. The food was good, but could've been better. Bone marrow dish and salmon special were amazing. However, the beef tartare was okay (didn't really taste like much) and halibut in buerre blanc was too salty (too many capers) and the artichoke gave the sauce a strange flavor. I would go back to try other dishes.

We had a lovely dinner at Zola the other night. Loved the summer beans with shishito peppers, the duck fat potato cakes and the halibut. Best thing was our waiter, Walter! He suggested a wine that we absolutely loved and was super friendly and fun. It was my birthday but we did not order dessert, so he brought out a small candle and two cookies. Loved it all!

After giving this restaurant a few tries, we give up. The whole experience was awful from the moment we walked in the door. The service was amateur hour. The space is cramped so severs stick their rear ends in your face when helping the table next to you. 2/3 of the food was inedible. How hard is it to come up with an edible steak? Duck fat potatoes awful. Salmon special was OK but bland. One restroom so often a wait. I could go on. Very little positive to say.

The evening could not have gone any better ! We were with our French neighbors for dinner.... so we could judge their reactions to the appeal of the dishes! We each ordered different dishes , gave small tastes of each to one another and there seemed to be agreement as to met expectations . One of the appetizers was the boeuf tartare, .... light fare, not overly generous in portion size but enough , very tasty, not salty, no quail egg on top but still pleasing to the palate with the dijonnaise and scallion flavors coming through nicely placed on top of small crostini toast .
My friend had the baked chèvre with toasted levain bread and she was waxing poetic over the appetizer!
I then ordered the roasted bone marrow which came very hot and so delicious .... I really wanted more bones !!!
The other entrées included a very generous tomato tart , beautifully served with fresh vegetables , another was Zola’s take on the classic French bœuf Bourgogne which did not disappoint my French friend and lastly my other friend had the country style Pork chop , again a winning dish . All the meal was accompanied by a personal bottle of Decoy Cabernet ( corkage was 40 dollars , a bit steep , but we did not mind ).
All in all the Zola dinner, ambiance and service was delightful and since they say the menu can change from time to time , we know we will return again !!
A real pleasure and as they say in France .... not « adieu » , but «  «  a bientôt ,vraiment « !!!

The food at this place is always outstanding. Service is very good, our server is very helpful. The only problem I have is that every time we went there we had to be asked to leave because of the next reservation. I understand it's a small place and is very popular but it still makes you feel rushed.

Zola continues to serve excellent food with interesting and reasonable wines and excellent service. The only issue is that it's very loud so this is not ideal for quiet discussion. The restaurant is small and dense so it may be difficult to change this, but attention to acoustics could make a difference.

This was our third time at Zola but it had been awhile. The whole experience was outstanding—the service, the food, the pacing of the evening. The highlights were the beef tartare, the tomato mozzarella with dandelion greens, the beef Bourguignon, the mussels, scallops, calamari dish, and the olive oil cake! Love this place!

We had the halibut appetizer which was like a crab cake with the right amount of breading and savory flavoring. We then had Sea Bass for our main course. Again excellent. The French Pinot Noir they recommended went perfectly with both. Can't wait to go back.
