Zeph's is a small, intimate restaurant with a limited menu but everything is prepared on site and made to order. The menu changes seasonally and the food presentation, preparation, flavors are excellent. The salmon was stuffed with leeks and herbs and was probably the best tasting salmon I have ever had. The accompaniments were delicious as well and the chocolate... More

Our resident foodie recommended Zephs for a fine dining experience and they clearly delivered. A small and intimate location that seats about 50 max, small enough that you can enjoy a serious conversation at your table without screaming. Their duck dishes are a staple of the menu which is quite an eclectic mix. Tried the Cassoulet and would highly recommend... More

The Zephs run a wonderful restaurant. Small, with a simple yet elegant decor, Vickie's cuisine never disappoints! The Duck Confit is a true gem for anyone who likes duck and is a staple item on the menu year-round. Other dishes are more seasonally oriented with many of the garnish items coming from the Zephs' own local gardens. My advice in... More

We had the pleasure of dining in this excellent restaurant in Peekskill. We were a group of 6 and were given very competent and attentive service from the start to the end of our meals. The number on entrees were somewhat limited but were more than adequate for our party but I do not believe there was a vegetarian choice... More

everything from appetizer to dessert is excellent. the food above outstanding taste. the service is exceptional. the only negative of the evening is the lighting(good for atmosphere, bad for reading menu and check. is this an industry standard).

Bar none Zeph’s is the best restaurant in Peekskill. To start with the bread is fresh and delicious. The wine list extensive and excellent. The food is absolutely delicious, we had the Swordfish, Short Ribs and Pork Shank. Not to be missed the desserts with a glass of port wine. Last but not least the service is excellent on all...

Innovative appetizers, salads seem fresh-grown with creamy pepper dressing (other choices too) and a simple choice of entrees, all utterly delicious every time. We have never been disappointed. Homemade ice creams are always a delight. The quiet, restful ambiance is an escape from noisier restaurants where one has to yell to be heard. They make the best Perfect Manhattan.

It's been a few years since we have been here but the quality is still the same. Reservations are needed. Tables spaced far enough apart for private conversations. I believe there are 2 seatings. The last time we were here, we took the late seating. The problem with that was they had run out of a few of the selections... More
