“Food good - parking not so good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The food and wait staff were great!! There was much time spent making sure all knew where they could park, and if they did not raining and people had to go and move their cars.

“interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The restaurant has good food and menu... and is convenient to downtown and campus, but pricey and pretentious.

“Nice lunch menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

I saw the complain of previous review. But now there is HUGE notice about parking now. I think owner did check review from time to time.
I ordered lunch menu with soup, crab cake and cream brule. It was really nice. crab cake was very good, I never see so much crab meat in crab cake before.
It's really nice. Just if you are in kind of a hurry, you may need to remind them in advance. I think speedy service is not their strength.

“Very disappointed with managment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We finished our appetizer and we where told that our car , who was parked next door has been towed. Manager told me look I have a sing out to tell you not to park next door ! Yes that is correct but why can the 'hostess' ! when you enter ask you again where did you park ! Zola has only 6 parking spots behind the restaurant. Can they not come to an arrangement with the owner of the next door vacant parking ? We left the restaurant to recover our car ( and paid $ 130 ) and did not go back.

“Best dinner in State College”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Really the best fine dinning in State College, PA. The menu is not large, but changes monthly. The cuisine is contemporary with definite French influence, season minded. You can order Tasting menu personally created for you by chef and sommelier (have not tried yet, as it is quite expensive - perfect for special occasion). The wine list is impressive.
