Had a veal parmesan dinner for lunch. The serving was large, and the veal was perfectly cooked and seasoned; you could cut it with a fork. My brother had the traditional Greek meal that was also very good.

I was given gift certificates by my son for my birthday so I tool my husband to dinner on Dec 30th and we were not disappointed. For once we ordered the same meal; escargot and the Braised lamb shank. To say the lamb fell off the bone is not an exaggeration, it was delicious. Everything was delicious and served perfectly....

my husband have taken our family out for dinner on Christmas Eve at Zougla's over the years. The food has been good, but not great in the past, but the owner/manager is a totally rude unfriendly man. The restaurant is very close to our house so is convenient. He stands at the entrance when you come in, he never smiles... More

The variety gives potential to satisfy every request. Service was just right. Tables spacing is just right to allow you to relax and enjoy the offerings which are created in a very reasonable time and well laid out. The filet Mignon 7Oz was perfectly Med rare good sized. The Prawn Scallop Souvlaki was a very tasty fresh plate that did... More

Enjoyed another great meal for my birthday. The food is outstanding and the service is exceptional - good to see a waitress who does not need to write down the order and still gets it completely right. There is a reason why Zougla's continues to be in business for so many years and one visit will confirm what it is.... More

We had a lovely dinner last night with bacon covered prawns, a real greek salad and Filet steak dinners. DELISH, DELISH, DELISH!!! Our meals were as ordered and our steaks absolutely melted in our mouths. The service is excellent as every server makes sure you have what you need. It was a team effort to make our dining experience magical.....

The ambience and views were great. Food was amazing - best steak and lobster I have had in a long while. Service was perfect. Our server was there at exactly the right times - attentive but not intrusive. A wonderful evening.

Whenever we have visitors from out of town we take them to our favorite restaurant. Nobody has ever been disappointed. The food is great with lots of variety. Try the Scallops Florentine for an appetizer. The Steak Zougla and Chicken Zougla are to die for. All the Greek and lamb dishes are very fine as well. The restaurant is round... More
