We had the pleasure of dining in this excellent restaurant in Peekskill. We were a group of 6 and were given very competent and attentive service from the start to the end of our meals. The number on entrees were somewhat limited but were more than adequate for our party but I do not believe there was a vegetarian choice... More

Zeph's was the first restaurant to open in Peekskill with a standard high enough for any city.The chef uses ingredients grown in her own garden and the menu is seasonal

everything from appetizer to dessert is excellent. the food above outstanding taste. the service is exceptional. the only negative of the evening is the lighting(good for atmosphere, bad for reading menu and check. is this an industry standard).

Bar none Zeph’s is the best restaurant in Peekskill. To start with the bread is fresh and delicious. The wine list extensive and excellent. The food is absolutely delicious, we had the Swordfish, Short Ribs and Pork Shank. Not to be missed the desserts with a glass of port wine. Last but not least the service is excellent on all...

Innovative appetizers, salads seem fresh-grown with creamy pepper dressing (other choices too) and a simple choice of entrees, all utterly delicious every time. We have never been disappointed. Homemade ice creams are always a delight. The quiet, restful ambiance is an escape from noisier restaurants where one has to yell to be heard. They make the best Perfect Manhattan.

It's been a few years since we have been here but the quality is still the same. Reservations are needed. Tables spaced far enough apart for private conversations. I believe there are 2 seatings. The last time we were here, we took the late seating. The problem with that was they had run out of a few of the selections... More

Relaxed and quaint dining atmosphere coupled by excellent service and delicious food! A bit off the beaten path in Peekskill making it even more endearing! From appetizers to desert every dish was deliciously prepared and presented. Darn good martini too!

I have to disagree with the glowing reviews of this place I found on the site. The food was really nothing special and the service was horribly slow. To top it off it was very pricey. Not happy and I so wanted to like it. The building was cool and the atmosphere quaint.

This restaurant has been in Peekskill for many years. If you want a really memorable meal this is the place to go. It is a quiet place with great staff. They change the menu with seasonal dinners. It is impossible to have a bad meal here. Be sure to have desert!!
