This is a find! We always are trying new restaurants with our best friends, with Zelco Bistro the latest. The food was fabulous. We tried the Farmer's Chicken and Shrimp and Grits plates. Both were rally good. Save room for dessert too! We tried the...More

Our previous visit to Zelko a year ago was excellent. Most recently, all that has gone lost. My wife’s glazed salmon was cooked to perfection, but served lukewarm, plated over risotto. The heavy dish was cool and rapidly cooled the risotto. I had the signature...More

I always enjoy Zelko and their wonderful food. It is a wonderful go to spot for the neighborhood for a casual meal or a celebration. Only wish would be for more vegetarian choices.

Go on a week night or Sunday night. It's easier to get in and quieter. We had the baked salmon, rueben (which come with a big bowl of fries) and the fish tacos. All was good. They have an impressive wine list and good service.

The food was great, but the whole experience marred by the hidden and exorbitant price of wine by the glass. The price by glass is not listed on the menu, and after the 32 dollar bottle was finished we ordered extra glasses. We were told...More

Zelko Bistro is one of my favorite spots in Houston. The food is consistently great. The last two times I was there I had the Ribeye which is outstanding, the GF had the Salmon both times. It's almost a shame that the dishes are so...More

Went on the suggestion of a good friend and was not disappointed. Charming Heights home converted into a restaurant. Nice patio for outdoor seating, when the weather and temps permit. Service was very friendly and attentive. I had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes and found...More
