I had an amazingly delicious supper at Zante on Monday night. Our server, Juliano made the perfect wine and food recommendations. I asked for a dry white wine and he recommended a chardonnay from South Africa, I wasn't sure about it, so he offered a...taster sample and I absolutely fell in love with it. I had 4 glasses by the end of the night. As for food, everything on the menu is cooked to perfection and served beautifully. My friend and I had the saganaki and crab cakes to start, which were both perfect starter portions to share. The saganaki was fresh and fried perfectly without being too oily. The crab cakes were cooked and seasoned just right. Then we moved on to the chilean sea bass with a greek salad side that was recommended again by Juliano. My friend and I were in heaven! Every bite of the chilean sea bass just melted in my mouth. The greek salad was incredible with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, red and yellow peppers and red onions, with just the right amount of dressing. It was a perfect compliment to the Chilean sea bass. We finished off with a plate of feta and olives. Again, the feta and olives were incredibly fresh and well seasoned and served perfectly. All prices are extremely reasonable considering the quality and care that goes into preparing each dish. If the delicious food, wine and impeccable service from Juliano wasn't enough, the ambiance created by Alexei's absolutely fantastic playlist of 90s hip hop and R&B was the perfect background music to keep me grooving all night. The music was played at a perfect volume. Not too loud, but just enough so I was able to catch each song and relive some of my most treasured memories associated to that particular track. He played every one of my favorite songs from that era. From The Pharcyde to Sade to Toni Braxton and Janet Jackson and many more. This man knows his music and knows how to create a mood. The lighting in the restaurant is dim, but only dim enough to feel as if my friend and I were in our own little world. There was still enough light for us to see eachother and to admire the food on the table. The tables are nicely set apart from eachother too so I never felt like I was lacking in privacy, even when the restaurant was full. Just before my friend and I were about to leave another string of favorite songs were playing so we asked Juliano if he could makes us some specialty coffees. We asked for Brazilian coffees and we were not disappointed at all. The coffee was freshly brewed and delicious, and Juliano added a nice amount of whipped cream and coffee bean garnish. After the coffee it was time to leave, but I truly cannot wait to go back. I also want to say thank you to the other servers who were also passing by our table, making sure we had everything we needed. Zante has staff that truly cares about their dinner guests and want them to have the best experience possible. It really shows that they strive to exceed their guest's expectations. And from my experience they definitely achieved that. I highly recommend trying this restaurant if you haven't already. I know I'm counting the days until I can go back!More

Excelent food and even better service. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection. Be prepared to pay as prices are on the high side.

We have dined at Zante a lot but this time was not great. Prices are very high like most restaurants, but the service is good, but a little too fast for this type of restaurant. Beer selection was poor: just Heineken, no Greek or domestic...beers. Wines are very expensive. The filet mignon was very tough, the fish was OK but nothing special, starters were ultra expensive but OK. We reported the tough steak and nothing was done, just a very short apology. We hope it was just an off night.More

Although the food and ambiance are great at Zante, the off-putting smell and grotesque floor stains really turned me off. After walking into the restaurant, my nose was met with the absolute, most horrific, putrid and vile smell known to man. I suggest they change...the air filters or something as the food that I ate was on the verge of coming back up! Absolutely horrifying. 6/10, would not return UNLESS IT IS FIXED RIGHT NEOW.More

Hadnt been there in 4 years & was looking forward to it. I love Greek salad but as we all know, a greek salad is only as good as the tomatoes so i asked the waiter very politely if the tomatoes were going to be...good, if not i would order another salad. He told me they were "amazing". Well they werent !!! They were soft & pasty & i didn't eat it.....waiter never asked if everything was alright..... main course was expensive & very average. I didnt make a scene, didn't complain but im never going back !!More

I went back a few times since I last wrote in 2020. It still is grand. On entry, you will be greeted by the owners, Costa or Tony. The place is just as it was B.C. (before Covid), clean open spaced tables with white table...cloths and real linen napkins. The padded chairs are a joy especially for my bad back. The staff are more like personal carers, they do not group around chatting, their eyes are everywhere and they seem to instinctively know when you need them, and they come on the run with a genuine smile. The food is fresh, choice produce, it come hot, the portions are really big and the menu is extensive with some really innovative cocktails and nice wines. Someone said that it is expensive, it is not, If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. If you do not over order it is actually great value. Don't believe me, go and see for yourself.More

We were directed to Zante by the concierge of our hotel. We really enjoyed the Greek salad, grilled chicken and veal cho. The portions were very generous, and the place was very quiet. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices are not cheap, but...the quality of the ingredients was very good.More

Not a point on its quality, but for your planning purposes, the pricing is in the "Fine Dining" category, not the two - three $. The price categorization here in Tripadvisor is incorrect: this restaurant is in the $$$$ category.

Nice setting for a fancy lunch or dinner. We were there at the end of the lunch service and the waitress kindly provided me a small plate to try my husband's spaghetti. It was delicious - the noodles were just right and the sauce had...some cardamom. Even though it was clearly the end of the lunch shift we did not feel rushed or lack attention.More
