There were very few people (only 2 other tables) in this resturant yet it took forever for someone to get our drinks and take the order. We ordered the cheese plate which was okay. Never offered any additional water nor were we checked on.

Solid, delicious food in a beautiful setting.

We shared the Buffalo burger and it was done like Buffalo should be done. The desserts were the highlight for us.

Zuper vibe and cool interior. Went in Friday afternoon for a couple of drinks and returned later that evening after leaving another sub-par bar. Sat at the bar and had great service both times. The bartender mentioned that this place (including a movie/play theater and adjoining area) are non-profit and support local charities as part of their mission. Food is... More

Good food, relatively limited but well-rounded menu.Great atmosphere. Excellent cocktail menu. Conveniently located. Zinema next-door allows you to enjoy a nice dining experience with some entertainment to follow.

Love the vibe here and the food. Our favorite "date night" is dinner at Zeitgeist followed by movie downstairs at the Zinema. I almost always order the coconut curry rice bowl with grilled tofu. Wish I could replicate their recipe at home. Extensive cocktail selection, and always a good display of local art.

The Zeitgeist Arts Cafe is one of our "fancy" destinations. The menu is always intriguing- offering meals that are beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant is good for small groups or romantic couples dining. Every time we go to Zeitgeist we order the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer, which has been a menu staple for a while. The rest of the menu... More

Great spot to have a bite before or after a movie (Zinema, downstairs). They make one of the best martinis in town. Their burgers are outstanding. Generally, good quality food, appealing, higher end-price wise, and wonderful service.

Was seated at an upstairs table. Atmosphere was nice, but one guy at the table next to us was very loud and boisterous. This detracted from the nice atmosphere. Stuffed bacon wrapped dates and pretzels with dipping sauces were very good appetizers . Lake trout was good. Thai chili bowl with shrimp was very watery and could've used a few... More

We were seated upstairs and it was so relaxing. The menu is more diverse than other area restaurants. I'm a little bit of a foodie and I love the selections. I have had the scallops, the mussels and the homemade pretzels appetizer. The homemade fries with truffle oil are a favorite among my friends. Excellent service. Recommend you check it... More
