    We opted to dine indoors instead of outdoors because it was a little chilly outside. But when we got into the dining room, it was colder than it was outside. Uncomfortably cold. My husband had to leave the restaurant to go out and buy us sweatshirts so that we would be able to eat comfortably.

    Zehnders always serves top notch food and is a yearly transition for our group of friends. We had our best experience yet when we went. Our server Alexis was the most attentive, friendly and funny server we have ever had and we will request her from now on. Always a delightful experience!!!

    The chicken was very dry … our server became neglectful - we waited a long time for her to even return to request more dark meat chicken - only yo be told they didn’t have any and it would be a wait. Very disappointed

    We both had the all you can eat chicken dinner we really enjoyed the cabbage side dish, the breads, the liver pate was very very good. Our server, Tyler, was excellent! We are seniors and it was just way way too much for us and felt bad that so much food was going to waste. May I suggest you have senior portions on your menu. Also we were in the oldest part of the restaurant at a table for four right by the kitchen and it was a freeway sitting there very uncomfortable.

    Was mainly disappointed with the food. The stuffing was mushy, potatoes instant and corn overcooked. Chicken broasted was ok. Bar did not know how to make a mojito. I have not been here in a couple decades and probably not going back any time soon.

    We had a wonderful server. She was very attentive to our needs and very pleasant. The chicken salad croissant had too much mayo and was messy. The house-made chips were dark, overdone, chewy, and needed more salt.

    We were not told about the a la crate menu. We had the daily special which was too much food for two people. The chicken and ribs were underwhelming. The best part of the meal was the cabbage salad. Very disappointing for the price and hype.

    Everything was pretty good. The stuffing could use some work- it’s just a blob of wet bread with sage mixed in. Otherwise it was good

    We LOVED our waiter, and we loved the food. Always so delish. We had a booth which we actually commented about how nice it was because we it was private, large enough that you can sit comfortably had we had 2 more and the higher sides allowed us to have private conversations and hear each other perfectly. All in all great job as usual!

    Better than the Bavarian Inn across the street. More space to sit, same food and less wait time. Use open table and went right in and was seated.

    We come to Zehnders often.. but this trip the food quality was a bit poor. The chicken was very dry and the vegetable side was mushy. This is very odd for Zehnders, usually our food is spot on. We love the feeling when we are there.. apart of the family traditions.
