Visited Zakes with a friend at 10AM on a recent Monday. Having been there once before, we were expecting good food. We were disappointed. We were cordially greeted and handed menus. We ordered the house Benedict and the crab/mushroom/cheese omelet. Both dishes were barely warm when brought to the table and since the plates were cold, the food was also... More

It had been a while since our last visit to Zakes and I'm happy to report the food prepared by this unique eatery remains consistently delicious. We took advantage of their Thursday 3-course prix fixe meal which included a glass of wine. My husband's meal began with Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup - the stock of which he proclaimed...

I had really high hopes for zakes. After reading all the wonderful reviews I was super excited. We waited for about 15 min for a party of 2 around lunch time on a Sunday. The disappointing aspect was the service. Listen i realize the place was crowded, but this was terrible. Took wait staff a very long time to attend... More

Zake's was a wonderful neighborhood find. A twist of Asian flare and always fresh. Unique soups, apps and entrees made with seasonal ingredients. Menu changes with seasons. All of the dishes are special. They will accommodate to suit dietary needs. Always busy so make a reservation. Ample parking and BYOB. Enjoy!

My honey and I had a great breakfast. I had the spinach and brie omelet. My hubby had crab, mushroom and cheddar omelet. Home fries were fantastic and even the whole wheat toast was delicious. We will be back!

I only tried the Black and White Gateaux and the White Raspberry cheesecake. Both were excellent along with their good house coffee (refillable too!). Warm and attentive service. Cozy interiors (be careful not to trip on the first step after you enter). They don't offer late lunch. Went there at 3pm and the kitchen wasn't serving anymore. They resume at... More

The potatoes were so salty. The egg Benedict was very dry. Server never came over to table to ask if we wanted water.

While their cakes and cupcakes look scrumptious, they all seem to taste the same, just flour and sugar. I have been disappointed several times now buying cakes for special occasions. Will not go back.

Never had a bad meal at Zake's. Never had a mediocre meal at Zake's. Never had a good meal at Zake's, because their food is really excellent. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this BYOB is always jampacked, and for good reason.
