I had to return my main course because the sauce was so burnt it was inedible. I had to wait 20 mins for another dish as the rest of the group completed their mains. Genuinely disappointed as rest of dinner was excellent.

We celebrate my husband birthday in Zaks. Dinner was simply amazing from start to finish. The quality was excellent and each dish was presented beautifully. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Looking forward to returning and trying some other dishes out.

Lovely food. Lovely setting. Think though the management need to improve the bar. They ran out of Guinness Budweiser and a few others in the afternoon and it was a small wedding. Poor selection of drinks. Staff were nice particularly the waitress.

Went for the early bird, the service was first class, attentive, friendly but not overly so, they struck the right balance. Had the Cured Salmon starter, excellent. The confit of belly pork was beautiful and tender, skin a bit rubbery and the Creme Brulee was...More
