I'd had a late lunch and just wanted something light. The green chili pork soup wasn't light, but it was really good and a perfect portion. Spicier than I expected, which was part of what made it so good. Had I realized how zesty it is, I'd have had a beer with it, instead of wine.

I can' t recall what my dining partner had, but I remember he cleaned that plate til it almost shone.

First the serve slow slow, nice server BUT I ordered the relleno server comes back after 5
Min and says they are out of it so I order the trout out of it so I order another dish and the server says they were changing the menu and it was different then what the menu said. So now 3 entrees they don’t hav and I end up w chips and guacamole. The Margs are nothing special and not worth paying more for a specialty marg. Service was beyond SLOW waited 10 min just for drinks and food a good 30 min Not worth it. Especially since the food is average taste at best

Hello there, I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner, but would love the chance to address some of your concerns. I am so sorry about the back and forth you had to go through with ordering your dinner, that's certainly not who we strive to be and what anyone should have to deal with. No amount of sorry can fix the night you had, but we would love the chance to have you back in for a delicious meal on us. Please don't hesitate to reach out anytime.

I had a fine lunch with a friend. Sometimes Zolo can be a bit noisy (FAC and weekend nights), but we had excellent service and very tasty food! Waitperson was friendly and helpful as we relaxed for a good chat while we ate.

We love Zolo. We've always had great service and great food here. My kids even enjoy going, and they're not big fans of eating out.

We've been going to Zolo's for decades. A bit pricy but worth it for the quality of this Boulder favorite restaurant. We recently were there for National Margarita day and the place was packed at 6 pm with people waiting. The place can be a bit loud and some seating is a bit close to adjacent tables so arriving early (like 5-6 pm) gives you more choices. Be sure not to order everything at once if you want a leisurely dining experience; the kitchen is very efficient and you may get your entrée while still enjoying an appetizer. We recommend the Chicken Enchilada (best in Boulder?) or most everything else. And definitely a margarita.
