We went there for the first time on Friday night and had a blast! We sat at the bar and Ari waited on us. He is also the owner. He was so very nice and welcoming! The place was hopping and the piano guy was...More

This was our first time visiting. we tried once before, but there were no seats available. We got there when it opened at 6:30. It is very casual and laid back. Good Bordeaux that paired well with the Chicken Alfredo pizza. The place is small...More

Wonderful time! Ari is such a great bartender-host. The music on Thursday evening was a lot of fun. Everyone was singing along to old 60's played beautifully.

There is a wonderful wine selection and fantastic food. Last night we had sea bass. The patrons are friendly and the piano music is fun. Highly recommend this little gem.

I've written about the Zebra before, it's a beer and wine bar with a brassy sounding piano. But what a change of pace from the rest, good music--a little bit loud, but a fun place all told. Worth stopping in just to see who's playing.

My wife and I have seen the Zebra Lounge, but since they don't have a dinner menu, we were hesitant to just stop in for a drink--until the right night came along. It's beer and wine and they do offer cheese and crackers and a...More
