My wife and I first found this restaurant when it was called Z's Fusion and just loved the seafood selection. I returned recently since they changed the name to Z's Oyster Bar and Steak House. It's got a great relaxing atmosphere downtown and is a refreshing break from the noisy chain laden 4th street live scene just a few blocks down the road. Service was friendly and professional. The Oysters Rockefeller was better than most and I had a very generous portion of excellent seared Ahi for dinner. Very good, very relaxing but nothing exceptional.

Thank Tim S

It had been about a year since we had been, not for lack of wanting, but poor planning on my part. I am very sorry I waited so long! The food was sensational and the service was superb. My mouth is watering as I am thinking about it.

A little pricey but worth every penny and I could do it again and again. Make sure you try the fried oysters!

Convenient location with a good selection of wine and beers. The Black tiger shrimp are excellent. I highly recommend at least 2 per person for your starter. The signature "Prime" Filet Mignon aged and cooked medium well is very tasty. I recommend the hash browns topped with cheddar cheese as a side dish. The cheddar cheese was browned and crunchy on top of the hash browns. For a dessert, Godiva Crème Brulee was out of this world delicious.

The service is some of the best that you'll receive. They work as a team and are very attentive to your every need.

The atmosphere is is nice, with two different dining room options.

Passing through Louisville, Ky and hotel recommended Z's. Great opah and diver sole. Spinach florentine was outstanding. Spinach mango salad delicious, sweet potatoes delicious. Would definitely return. Wonderful service as well.

nice location down town close to our hotel, the Marriot, and convention center, easy walk. Friendly staff, did not have reservations. Was quiet when we first arrived but by time we left there were multiple tables of large groups. Great waiter. Good Bourbon and wine selection great raw oysters and steak selection for our non-seafood loving friends. Was rather pricey but worth it. Also very nice dessert selection. Loved the duck breast and the pecan pie.
