“Small House with Big Flavors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The unassuming little cottage house that is the home of Zelko Bistro is located on 11th Street in the Heights. Only one disabled parking spot in front but lots of parking behind. Unusual collection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and entrees are offered and the menu I am told changes at times. Service is excellent and attentive. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My wife and I went here for our anniversary and really enjoyed the food and people watching. The food was really good and not too pricey. The portions left us full but not overly stuffed. They have a nice selection of wines and beers to boot.

“Great Heights Foodie Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

I really like the menu here. There is a comfort food emphasis an updated twist. Crop salad was perfect. Great crabcakes. Dessert is very good as well. Good people watching and nice atmosphere. An asset to the neighborhood.

This place was awesome. We went for lunch after our couple's massage at The Petite Retreat (so close, we even walked!) Great wine list

“Eclectic comfort food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Zelko's is constantly busy because of the quality food which is prepared in such a way that it's hard to imagine how anyone could not find something they just absolutely loved. Don't miss this one if you're in the area. You most likely will have to wait for a little while but it's worth it.
