This restaurant is closed for good and if you have a gift certificate its worthless. The article was published today 2/09/11 in the Lakeland Ledger. How can you give the joint even a star period

Reallly is the best out there in Lakeland and likely the best in Central Florida. Great wine list, the Chef is world class! Went New Years Eve had a great time enjoyed the Lakeview. This is now my go to place for impressing those I take to dinner!

I was wanting a unique place to take my friend to lunch and let me tell you I found it. The lunch was absolutely the best ever. We ate out on the veranda and it was the sweetest setting to sit and have a wonderful conversation over a glass of wine. The menu offered a variety of new and different foods not seen in places around.

We had our daughter's wedding reception at Zohra's in July 2009, during which the restaurant was closed for our event. There were around 100 people in attendance, and everything went extremely well. The food and service was excellent. In addition to the delicious entrees, a special dessert was prepared for the bride and groom. It was outstanding. Chef Jose and his wife Bonnie provided us with a wonderful experience that we will always remember.

My friends and I stopped in this week after seeing Zohra's in Today and Tonight magazine. This was is the best place I have eaten at in all my life. Crazy as it sounds it is true. We went in for Dinner Friday and back for lunch on Saturday. Our food was so unbelievably good that I am still curious how the Chef makes this all come together. We had a great White Wine on Friday. Saturday was buy one get one free on Sangrias and they were so good. I spotted they have meeting rooms for private parties.

You are going to love this place. I love the lakeview from the patio area. Try the Snapper if they have it, it was awesome.

Wow! Recently, we had the opportunity to dine at Zohra's for lunch and it was outstanding! I noticed they are now open for dinner on Friday and Saturday so we went this past weekend. Hard to believe our dinner was even better. The details this chef puts into his plates is incrediable. It reminded me of dinning in France on our honeymoon. I am hoping my darling husband will book our Valentines dinner here as it is so romantic. The bonus news is they are serving beer and wine now! They had a great red wine I forget them name but it was a house wine. So next time you eat out head to Zohra's you will be impressed. Ask for the Creme Brulee it is as good as I had it in France. Enjoy!

This restaurant was great.The food was prepared by a chef and I sure can tell the difference.I has the Ossobuco Beef Short Ribs with a red wine reduction sauce.This dish was excuted like it was coming from a five star restaurant.The only difference was the price $14.I work in a resort and our restaurant would have charge $34 for the same type of dish.My daughter had the turkey wrap and I got a tatse of it [to die for].I don't know how that much flavor could come from one wrap.It was like heaven in a roll.My husband had the Chicken Alfredo and very pleased with it.Zohra's is in a beautiful red brick home turned into a restaurant, which over looks Lake Wire.The view was quiet, peaceful, and calming.I sure can't wait to see how they decorate for the upcoming holiday's.I'm sure going to take my friends there for our gift exchange.

Do you remember eating out 10 years ago and when you paid $20. a plate you got good food? Well, you know it is hard to find now a place that doesn't sell frozen food. I am so happy that I found Zohra's we will be back for all our special occasions. We had the best steak and shrimp in a long time and it was fresh and under $20. I saw the lunch menu and it certainly will be my Lakeland lunch spot from here on out. Keep doing it like your doing it! Worth the drive around Lake Wire that is for sure. You guys are awesome.

My Mother had a great experience here so she invited me to join her for a meal. We were there on Feb 16 2008. We arrived a little later than the typical lunch crowd and most people were already gone but there was a large party gathering in the center room. We stood at the door for over 5 minutes while the staff ignored us. It was obvious they knew we were there but they left us standing there while at least two or three staff organized the room for the party. We were then seated on the porch, a lovely setting but were given very little attention because they were totally focused on setting up for a party. My food was OK but some of the things were missing including my salad dressing. Since the waitress didn't come back to see how we were doing, I couldn't ask for it and ate my salad without it. I think the setting was lovely and the concept great but they had some faults the day we were there.

Error We took over ownership in October 2008 and this review if for Zohra's Tearoom not Zohra's Lakeside Restaurant. We understand you had a bad experience and would invite you to dine with us so you may correctly review our restaurant. Thank you.

I can hardly believe how great our dinner was. We started with the Crab Cakes which was the best I have ever had. I had the soup of the day and my wife had a house salad with a fantastic Greek dressing. The server said even the salad dressings are made in house. Our Entrees were the Ossobucco Short Ribs which is their signature dish so I had to try it. It is worth being called a signature dish it was the best food I have ever enjoyed. My wife had Grouper stuffed with crab and shrimp. The display of the food was so beautiful even down to the little garnishes. The Chef is on top of his game for sure. We finished with some wonderful coffee and their house dessert Creme Brulee which again was the best I have ever had. This was a week ago and I have been dreaming of my next dinner this Friday night. I never write reviews so sorry for running on but I felt to compelled to let everyone know how awesome this place is. It is so great to see a Chef who does not take the easy path to food. You will not be disappointed I promise you. I love the charm of the house and the staff who took care of us.

Thank You Your gracious review was very appreciated... It makes us proud to be here.

I have only been to this little restaurant a few times, but would not hesitate to go back for any type of special occasion. Although it seems like a very "girly" place upon entering, it is usually full of business men at lunch time. The menu has some hearty offerings on it. My favorite dish I have eaten there is the spinach crepes. YUM! They offer delicious little muffins with every meal, and the decor is delightful. Try to get a table on the porch so you can have a view of the lake! If you have many people in your group, you're likely to feel a bit cramped, but you won't go away hungry!
