my favorite dish here is paella very flavorful their breakfast burito with gravy is to die for. I also buy the spicy chorizo to take home.

So moist and flavorful. It was not one of those bread crumb salmon cakes where you have to search for the salmon! This was full of salmon and delicious.

We loved our dinner last night at Z Bistro! Who knew you could find a little slice of France in Carson City? My husband is French and we always love trying bistros when we find them. From the moment we walked in and smelled the savory smells from the kitchen, to the kir royals, house made pate, moules-frites, pork chop... More

Z Bistro is a family run, casual restaurant in an unlikely off-prime location in Carson City. Tina and her husband serve seasonal, fresh food with a Basque/French theme. The food is consistently excellent and varied and the wines are well chosen and fairly priced. It is small and well patronized so be sure to make a reservation.

My husband and I enjoyed another delicious meal at this cozy, French restaurant. The Chardonnay was excellent, the pork belly... succulent, and the bread pudding... divine! Such a warm, welcoming atmosphere! Thank you Tina and Gilles!

We have driven by this restaurant for sometime and when some friends mentioned going there for "Date Night" we were happy to go. The overall experience was very good and the food was wonderful!! The price for a glass of wine was shocking though! However, we would go back! Be sure and make reservations.

I drive by this restaurant almost daily and live in the neighborhood where it is located. I decided to have dinner there on the recommendation of a close friend and to listen to the music of my good friend and colleague, Joe LaChew. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the music was amazing! Thank you to Tina... More

I have been going to this quaint and delightful French Bistro almost since the day it opened. The food is fantastic and fresh and the service is outstanding. They used to serve lunch and dinner but unfortunately for me, they now only serve dinner and occasionally have a day where they do a crepe lunch. It is small and intimate... More
