My husband and I went for dinner and a movie at Zeitgeist and Zinema 2. I called ahead for a reservation, and the host advised us how much time to allow given the show time, which was quite helpful. We had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner. Both meals were nicely presented, flavorful, and satisfying. I had the gnocchi,... More

I was just here on Business eating solo at the bar. Felt comfortable with a huge selection of drinks and a great menu. I had the THAI CHILI BOWL with tofu – they made it with the right amount of heat! A little different menu with some healthy options which is always a big plus.

The restaurant itself is located on two levels. We were on the mezzanine level, where the noise was quite deafening. One strike. We had a party of nine, and the table adjacent to ours was so close that our waiter could not get near most of the people in our party. Most of the food and drinks had to be... More

I hate to write a bad review on a place, but Zeitgeist Cafe was lousy. The night started off at around nine PM for us. They are open until 11 PM, I asked the Host who was about to seat us by the three tables downstairs (next to the bar) if we could dine in the dining room upstairs. She... More

We visited Zeitgeist Arts Cafe for cocktails. They had an impressive bar and a cocktail menu of all the classics made properly! Between us, we ordered a Gin Fizz, Corpse Reviver, Sidecar, and Manhattan and enjoyed each one. They dry-shook the gin fizz for fantastic results. The bartenders hand-squeeze juices for each of their drinks individually. We sat at the... More

5 of us had dinner at Zeitgeist on a Friday night. Friendly service, an interesting and varied menu. Not too expensive. The mussels in a curried coconut milk broth were great. Loved the grilled romaine salad! It was huge and easy to share. The rice curry dishes went over well, as did the pork chop with grilled polenta. Only misstep... More

Had lunch with 3 other women today. We all had best food & service. Burger & fries good quality & served hot. (not the case at lots of places) Some had fish sandwich excellent. Homemade desserts also. We shared banana cream pie. Cool place but not snooty.

I like Zeitgeist for their excellent drinks and their fantastic bar. The atmosphere is super hip and artsy and I love dining in their upstairs space. I think Walter (a bartender there) makes the best cocktails in town. He just knows what he's doing. Last time I went in I sat at the bar with my friend and I wasn't... More

Good fresh food prepared to our tastes. Cheddar a little strong for bison burger. Cheese plate local fig jelly delicious. Local whitefish sand. Fresh.
