We wanted a place to eat close to our Airbnb and chose Zola. We shared the nachos and a chicken parm sandwich. Portion size was decent and service was great as well. The only thing we didn't care for was that they allow smoking inside.

Great food and service but in a bar setting with a lot of cigarette smoke that we were not used to anymore. Burgers were very tasty and quite large and the buns were soft, tasted like homemade Kettle chips were hot and excellent. Service was fast and friendly

I ate here for the last day of Cincinnati Burger Week. I had the Zola burger. It was excellent. The server was very friendly. It's a little small, so if they are busy you might have a wait, but its worth it.

Adam, one of our servers, was really awesome and took great care of us. We live in Indiana and I expected anywhere in Kentucky to be kind of hillbilly-ish. This was a hip little pub with great food and reasonable prices. Good beer selection too. We would've gone for a second visit during our stay except the snow made parking... More

Have been to Zola at least once a month for about the last 3 years. Every time I've gotten a burger but when they are this good I don't care to vary my routine. I've gone with people that have order things other than burgers it looks good. A couple of times I've gone to just get a beer and... More

Zola’s was an “after the show” stop with my youngest (teen) daughter on a very nice Sunday afternoon. Located on the east side of Main Street in Covington’s Mainstrasse, it is the sister location to the “915 Pub” in Fort Thomas, KY, a few miles to the east. That connection is evident in its menu, and its style. The waiter/bartender... More

I've lived here in Main Strasse for ten years and Zola has been part of my urban lifestyle in that decade, but I will never be back. Ordered our usual burgers while sitting outside. My burger was ordered medium, and came back basically uncooked. My wife continued to eat while they re-cooked my patty. She stopped chewing, and pulled out... More

Nice place with decently priced beer (buckets of beer was a great deal). We were there late in the afternoon, not too busy or noisy. Friendly service.
