We had 10 people in our group for a Wed. night and the service and food couldn't have been better. A good variety of appetizers and entrees set in a warm atmosphere made the event very successful.

Food is great and a refreshing change from the everyday fast food and pizza that the area has plenty of. Drink menu is even better!!

I had the salmon, which was delicious. My husband had the meatloaf, which he thought was average. We both had a pumpkin martini which we thought were average as well. Good service.

Deep red walls and rich hardwood accents create an inviting and relaxing setting for an exciting, eclectic meal at Zanzibar. The menu contains numerous original contemporary American dishes with world influences. Two of the most popular items, lahvosh, is an Armenian cracker bread topped with a five-cheese blend, veggies, and a variety of meats and Meatloaf Mignon (this isn’t your mama’s meatloaf). The bar can mix up hand-craft cocktails, over 65 kinds of martinis, and offers an unique wine list. The menu is very vegetarian friendly (any meal can be altered) and contains over 100 gluten-free options. They also create their own spice blends that are available to take home. Reservations are recommended.
