This restaurant could be so much more and needed in Livermore. The idea and dishes work but just need to be refined. Atmosphere is inviting in the first room, back room not. Service is friendly. Lots of variety on menu and good local wine selection

4 of had dinner at Zephyr Grill. Note they waive a corkage fee if the wine is from the Livermore area. Total for the 4 of us, including a bottle of wine purchase, our total was just under $200. From seafood to beef, lots of great choices for the group.

A nice menu to complete you gastrointestinal desires. A terrific bar scene, drinks and bar grub. Seat comfort is specifically designed to assure turnover! The seating is hard...

Our meals were delicious! The menu choices are unusual and creative. Each of us had a different meal and we all loved our choices. On Sundays they have a fried chicken special which included dessert for a good price. My salad was so good, I will have a difficult time trying other items on the menu even though they look... More

Zephyr is inconsistent. I hosted an out of town friend and thought we would give it a try because the last time I ate there it was pretty good. Not so this time. The menu selection was boring and the food was less than fair. At the prices they charge I expect more.

I've made 3 separate visits here with significant business partners because I've really liked the service, menu, and atmosphere. What had been my go to place in Livermore - well, I need a new place. The service has become the only outstanding feature. Completely inconsistent food quality. Grisly meat, small portion of over breaded fish, rubbery appetizer, lukewarm main course.... More

Some unique specialties on the menu - meatloaf is wonderful. Plus they'll change things around seasonally. Only issues I've had is sometimes the booths aren't comfortable because they pushed them together too much, and seats are little high for us "vertically challenged" folks! And service has been slow sometimes. Overall, though, very good.
