Had a wonderful experience a year ago. Yesterday was a repeat visit with friends. Entree ordered by me was a braised short rib. It was tasty even though a bit over cooked, just the opposite for the sides. Fingerling potatoes were hard, barely cooked, broccoli was lukewarm and way to crunchy. Very disappointing, especially considering the reputation this restaurant has.

Have been to Zella's on two occasions for lunch. For lunch you proceed to the rear counter, place your order, then take your number and pick a table. The atmosphere is very nice, sort of like an old fashioned supper club. The booths are comfortable and private feeling. I've had the half salad both times, the first time it was... More

Menu always has new items always done extremely well. Good wine selection and good pairing ideas. Food is always fresh and they do you local producers whenever possible.

We enjoyed our meal. The hostess gave us our choice of window tables so that we could keep an eye on the city's main street. We tried local beers. The server told us the menu changes frequently because the chef tries to use as many locally grown products as possible. The day we visited, bacon-wrapped morel mushrooms were available as... More

Zella's is a quaint restored restaurant in down town Hutchinson, Mn. We love the atmosphere and the food is delicious. Try the fillet mignon is is excellent. Fun place to take friends or have a quiet dining experience for two.

Every aspect of the experience was pleasant -- warm/inviting ambience, comfortable seating, pleasing decor, professional staff, imaginative menu and a large selection of wine and (nice and cold) beer.

My husband and I went to Zella's last Friday night for our anniversary and it was fantastic. We had INCREDIBLE service, Josie was our server. We had never been there before and so I probably asked too many questions but Josie never stopped smiling and gave great recommendations. We started out with the Romaine wedge salad which was very fresh... More

Zella's is probably one of the best choices for a meal in Hutchinson. Lunch is a little different to their dinner service in that you order from a counter and pay for the meal then take a number to your table. We both had the Brisket Sandwich, one with fries and one with sweet potato fries. I also tried a... More

We have been to Zella's on three different occasions each time with high hopes. Each time we had negative experiences with things like service, out of menu items, and a chunk of dirt in the butter. It is an expensive restaurant and we are disappointed we couldn't love this restaurant. We love local and gourmet but this place needs to... More
