Zorros is our favorite "celebrate big life acheivements" destination. My girlfriend and I made a reservation and showed up early; they were more than happy to give us a table. We started with the free tray of pickles, kalmata olives and butter, along with a large basket filled with warm garlic bread. I loved the fact the garlic bread wasn't a punch in the face with garlic, it was hard to stop eating it!
I decided to have some red wine and my girlfriend had a pop (shes a great sport being the DD since she doesn't drink red wine). The wine menu is quite large and unfortunately there is only a handful of reds that can be ordered by the glass.
I ordered the zorros cut of prime rib; which, be warned, is absolutely massive. I planned to doggie bag the rest to share with my parents the next day. My girlfriend went with the smallest ($28) cut of prime rib. Both come with a salad and a wide selection of dressings. We went for something lighter, the balsamic vinaigrette, which was light and refreshing. I've been told the bleu cheese and creamy garlic dressings are both fantastic as well. The salad was basically just a spring mix with a few pieces of celery cut into it. If you want something more fun, I'd suggest passing on the salad with your meal and order the Caesar salad (which is made fresh right at the table) or other appetizer.
The prime rib was, as I already said, massive. It was cooked perfectly as we ordered it and came with a baked potato (sour cream is offered, but Ive also seen others ask for bacon bits, dried chives, etc - these are not offered by the server). The prime rib comes with a large amount of au jus, which is fantastic. Ask for some to bring home with your leftovers. They also have AWESOME and extremely hot horseradish. I always ask for an extra scoop, I love this stuff.
I passed on dessert, as I was close to a food-induced coma. My girlfriend loves the lemon sorbet. Unfortunately it doesnt come with fresh strawberries in the winter, only during the summer. My parents had the pecan pie during a previous visit and also enjoyed it very much.
As for service; the waiters are somewhat awkward, but are very quick and accomodating if you need anything. They do rush you a bit too much, but if you just tell them you'd like more time, they will slow down. They also should instinctively offer a wine menu before taking beverage orders. This isn't a huge deal; all I had to do was ask for a wine menu and it's not the end of the world. The waiters always offer fresh pepper for potatoes,
The gentlemen in charge of water do need a little additional training; they often spill the water when pouring and need to slow down and be sure not to fill someone's glass on the table, as it spills onto food, menus, etc.
Yes, the decor is old, but the place isn't dirty. The washrooms were clean. The light in the dining room was the perfect brightness (or dimness). The chairs were very comfortable. I'm not vain enough to let less-than-new decor ruin my dinner.
We will definitely be returning whenever we can afford to!
