Z's Oyster Bar & Steakhouse
Their motto, \"simply prepared and elegantly served,\" says it all. They simply prepare the best quality food allowing its natural flavors to prevail with professional service. They want to provide an excellent dining experience with their fine food and wine selection. They offer weekly specials. Z's steaks are selected from prime midwestern aged beef, hand-cut to order and cooked the way you like it. Their seafood is purchased directly from day boat fisherman from Pacific Northeast. Oyster lovers can select from the best oysters available. Evening seafood specials are available after 4 p.m.
We drove 180 miles because of the reviews we read, well the ambiance was comfortable. The waiter was knowledgeable of the specials, and wine list, and the service was good. We started with lobster bisque and the tiger shrimp. The soup was avearge, and the shrimp were firm and tasty. We had the ceaser salad that again was average. My son ordered the filet, great marbling, nicely grilled, yet closer to medium then med rare. I ordered surf and turf with the marlin, the marlin was probably the worst part of the meal. Marlin was definitly not sushi grade, was palatable only with the pomegranate sauce. The Steak was equal to my son s, yet better grilled. The fillet was good, have had a lot better dry aged beef. Dessert was very average my son had the cheesecake that was dissapointing, with a strawberry garnish that was equal of sara lee. My key lime pie was again average with nothing to get excited about. Overall slightly better then average. Would we go back, hmmm probably not, was it a total loss, No.
This is by far one of the best restaurants in Louisville. The service was excellent, everything was prepared fresh and tasted great! We had a rather demanding party of 5 people, and the chef nailed each dish. Even with several changes, the waiter got everything correct, very professional. This was one of the nicest dining experiences I have had in years! Wonderful time was had by all!
I ate here for the first time last night and I was blown away. I have lived in various cities in the midwest, and I have NEVER found a restaurant that could deliver BOTH seafood and steak to perfection! The server said they fly the fish in fresh daily and I believe it! A wonderful dining experience!
I agree with the other posts, this place is wonderful! I am not a regular, but I go about once or twice a month, and I am always treated to a fantastic dining experience! I'm so glad there is a fine dining option on the east side of town!
I've been here three times this year, and finally decided I needed to give them a review. I have taken some business clients here and my girlfriend on different occasions, and it is just wonderful. The atmosphere is always fantastic, and I also like the Bourbon specials on Thursday nights. The staff is incredible, I have always been treated professionaly. It is very much unlike any other place in Louisville. I will be back!
I've eaten in this restaurant several times and I think it's a great place to go and have a quite and romantic evening with best daily fresh food in town. I highly recomend this restaurant to people who love to eat in nice and friendly atmosphere and people who love seafood and steak. Thanks
The steaks here are wonderful, but I REALLY like the seafood. It is very difficult to find a great seafood place this far inland, but apparently Z's brings everything in fresh. Some of the best lobster and crab I have EVER had! Wonderful!
My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at Z's on an anniversary weekend trip. The atmosphere was elegant. The food wonderful. I had the crab cakes. Maybe the best I've eaten. My wife chose the NY Strip. This almost caused a fight as I could not stop stealing bites. Without question the best steak I've ever eaten. We will go out of our way to return to Z's in the future.
The quality is not what it used to be. My husband ordered their $48.00 steak. It was so tough he wasn't able to eat it. When he complained the manager came to our table and offered a credit of $6.95 for the salad. I understand that a bad cut of meat can happen at any restaurant, but how the restauraant handles it ithe difference in a bad experience or an lost customer. Having worked in the food distribution business for several years, I know that when a customercomplains about a bad cut of meat, the restaurant can demand credit from their distributor. The distributor can then demand credit from the vendor. Z's needs to teach their staff how to keep customers. Sorry doesn't go very far on a $127.00 dinner that is not edible. My filet was tender, but tasteless. There are too many good restaurants in Louisville to choose from. We won't bother to go back due to the lower quality of their steak and the way they handled it.
