The service was excellent and very friendly. We had a year old baby with us and things went fine. We all know thought the beer and food was very good.

Decent menu. But recommend adding avocado to more things. It grows here ! Can only discuss what we had so did not try everything. Burger decent but not phenomenal for $12. Hot pastrami was good. Tabouli mediocre and a disappointment. It was soggy, parsley did not appear fresh, remainder overlooked with lityle flavor. Overpriced for what it was but not... More

Had the pork chop special and wanted to lick the bone. Service staff was good, food excellent, although a bit pricey. Dinner, salad, a glass of wine and the tip set me back $58. Great for a special night.

Zookers is one of my favorite restaurants. I love their grilled veggie salad and don't leave without trying their coconut creme brûlée. Its the best!

The food is amazing! Every day there are different specials that are very creative and tasty! And the enviroment is really nice! All the flowers and paintnings ad a nice touch to the place. The owner is always around and she's lovely!

Not that great. The cauliflower soup tasted canned with a sprig of fennel thrown on top. The ahi was cold and the soba noodle salad that comes with it did not taste very fresh. Even the iced tea tasted old. One person got the special white sea bass which was very good. The lemon cheesecake was also very good and... More

We stop here after games and when in the area and always have a good meal. Great for dining as well as somewhat casual. Don't believe it has outside seating but it's very open inside. Creative dishes as well as standards. Reuben sandwich for lunch was excellent.

Stopped for lunch in our way back to the central coast. Varied menu with a good combination of flavors. We had the Zooker chicken sandwich, the Mediterranean sandwich. The homemade pita chips and humus were especially tasty.

There were 7 of us eating at Zookers. Starters were the Chips, and Hummus, then the Spring Rolls. Both were a huge hit at our table. The bread was very good, although we did need to flag the staff to bring more bread. The Chicken was amazing, as were the seafood dishes, and scallop with shrimp tostada. Cobbler was tasty,... More

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was incredible. I loved all the orchid plants that I found out that a customer loans to the restaurant. I thought this was incredible that someone would love such expensive orchids and spoke of the responsibility of the owners and workers in the restaurant. It was my birthday that night and they treated... More
