I work a block from Zax and look forward to having lunch there at least once a week. It has an open loft feel with lots of light and a nice outdoor patio. The menu is varied and they have daily specials which are always fresh and tasty. Everything i have eaten here has been delicious and everyone i have recommended says the same. Service is friendly and attentive. They also have a great beer on tap selection that is fun to try at happy hour.

A definite go-to restaurant and bar.

We came for sunday brunch. I had the Zax eggs (2 crab cakes topped with a pouched egg and hollandaise sauce), a side of tomatoes and orange juice. My husband had an omellette with mushroom sausage and cheese, a side of peppered bacon and habiscus tea. He said his meal was "OK". I thought my meal was very good. My problem with my meal is that with EVERY bite, I was removing bits of crab shell that had not been removed from the crab meat. It made what could have been an enjoyable eating experience, very frustrating. I did try my husbands peppered bacon. I was not impressed.

The atmosphere was nice. Service was fair. I could see parking being an issue.

I must say, I don't think I will be returning.

...which is the exact color of the potatoes served to me yesterday, unless you count the two brown tumors the kitchen staff failed to cut out of them. The service was slow and erratic, the small dollops of hollandaise were congealed and cold, and the food lasked any semblance of flavor or spice. Nice atmosphere, though.

I think every wednesday is belgian beer night and you get the branded beer glass to keep along with the beer. They have the usual suspects on tap and in bottle, and an amazing outdoor patio area, so what more could you want? I think the food's pretty good too...
