Had a great experience!

Adam, one of our servers, was really awesome and took great care of us. We live in Indiana and I expected anywhere in Kentucky to be kind of hillbilly-ish. This was a hip little pub with great food and reasonable prices. Good beer selection too. We would've gone for a second visit during our stay... read more

Have been to Zola at least once a month for about the last 3 years. Every time I've gotten a burger but when they are this good I don't care to vary my routine. I've gone with people that have order things other than burgers it looks good. A couple of times I've gone to just get a beer and... More

Zola’s was an “after the show” stop with my youngest (teen) daughter on a very nice Sunday afternoon. Located on the east side of Main Street in Covington’s Mainstrasse, it is the sister location to the “915 Pub” in Fort Thomas, KY, a few miles to the east. That connection is evident in its menu, and its style. The waiter/bartender... More

I've lived here in Main Strasse for ten years and Zola has been part of my urban lifestyle in that decade, but I will never be back. Ordered our usual burgers while sitting outside. My burger was ordered medium, and came back basically uncooked. My wife continued to eat while they re-cooked my patty. She stopped chewing, and pulled out... More

Nice place with decently priced beer (buckets of beer was a great deal). We were there late in the afternoon, not too busy or noisy. Friendly service.

Upon entry you will note it is a quaint room with occasional live music and a century old mirrored and wooden bar against the wall. The staff is unusually cheerful and knowledgeable about their menu offerings. The chili is one of the best ever and the grilled cheese is perfecto. Will return to try their other offerings. Smoking is permitted.

I went to Zola with my boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The service was a little slow, but that's only because there was only one guy waiting tables and working the bar, so considering that, he always made sure our drinks were topped off and our food came out pretty quickly, once we finally got the order in....
