“Overpriced and mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We dined here one time and will not return. The menu is beyond the chefs ability and the results were mediocre. Prices are too high for the quality received.

“Excellence in Cameron Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We've eaten at ZacJack Bistro a number of times and for breakfast, lunch and dinner and with only one minor hiccup, the food has been excellent every time. This is a real find and it's pretty amazing to find such quality in little Cameron Park. The service is always relaxed yet good and the wait staff seem to appear at just the right times, without hovering. The food is elegant and beautifully prepared and seasoned. Our most recent visit was for Easter dinner and we had the lamb and prime rib. We couldn't decide which was better…they were both perfect. This little bistro is a true find and our only hesitation in giving it the highest recommendation is that we hope it doesn't become overcrowded or too pricey. AND…a little tip: Tuesday evenings they have beautiful live jazz with a trio that could perform anywhere and be well received. This place is a true oasis of excellence in an otherwise pretty lackluster area.

“Great fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have been to Zac Jack Bistro many times. Have had Breakfast, lunch and dinner. All great.. Reasonably priced....So few places to go in Cameron Park. In the Applebees shopping center, but so much better. Food is really fresh and expertly prepared.

“Gourmet Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This the second trip to ZacJack in recent weeks. I am very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. With another couple, we enjoyed some of the finest breast of duck with a cherry glaze, I have had in many years. My wife and friend had the duck confit also very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling up Hwy 50 to or from Lake Tahoe, you won't be disappointed or broke by the bill.
