Cons: Lack of Expeditious Service

The atmosphere is great, unfortuntaley, the service is the polar opposite. The staff seems put out if the clientele bothers them for things like more water or asking why the food is taking two hours to come out of the kitchen. When the

Cons: Odd bathroom decor, Talkative owner

After reading the previous review, I was a little concerned about dinner plans for a group of five because my friend joining us is a vegetarian. She ordered the Farmers Market tasting menu, (which is all vegetarian), and raved about each

Pros: good parking, good service, perfect setting

I am not sure why "vegetarian" is a word featured in the description of Zoot, because there weren't any vegetarian entrees. As someone who isn't fond of meat, I had a difficult time choosing an entree, so I wouldn't recommend this

I am always impressed with Stewarts incredible ability to create something out of nothing. Zoot is just one more shining example of his talent. It had been some time between our visits to the little house on Hearn, but I was comforted when

I have only been here once, but the service was wonderful, the decor was cool and retro (LOVE the Eames chairs!), and the food was awesome. Perfect portions - you didn't need to roll me out, as so often is the case these days. Can't wait

Having grown up in Houston and lived in Dallas, I have visited many excellent restaurants. We have consistently been disappointed in the restaurant selections here in Austin. So when we heard about Zoot being excellent, we gave it a try.

It's hard to imagine this place is rated at about the same as bland chain restaurants. Disregard the negative review, since I've only had really good experiences the three times I've been to Zoot. They have very quilaity ingredients,
