I always thought of this place as basically an upscale coffee shop with a liquor license, and i often enjoy meting people here for a drink after work. Then, on a lark, I took my wife for her birthday dinner in December. Our steak dinners were outstanding, and the service was excellent! Then we brought the family back for brunch on Sunday and again was very impressed. I agree with another reviewer....why wait in line at Cafe Zola when you can come here and be seated right away? I actually thought it was cool when we walked out, and saw a young couple leisurely enjoying a bottle of wine at 1:30pm on a Sunday afternoon. That's a great way to live!
