“A Food Oasis”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nestled between and beneath corporate businesses, across from a Mall full of fine eateries lies Zebra. Literally a hidden gem. The visual tone of this cozy but spacious bistro is set by its name. You enter at the natural wood toned bar area where you will immediately find sprinkles of decor mimicking a safari theme. Smiles as warm as an African sun will immediately welcome you in as you are escorted through quaint rooms of cozy to your own resting place. All of the staff is so glad to meet you. Yes! They speak to you as if you're old friends invited over for dinner. Your menu selection will be wonderful and abundant. The cuisine is as appealing to the eye as it is the palate. The flavors perform like an orchestra in your mouth. Everything just blends beautifully! The service is almost artistic in itself as well. Any dish will be explained with a pride in blessing you with such wonderful deliciousness. Save room for desert. It won't be some massive construction of sugar. It will be an ample provision of sweet something to conclude with. Zebra is a MUST VISIT and SEE

“One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Since it opened in November 2001, this has been in the top 10 in Charlotte, not by me but by nearly all the foodies and food critics in the Queen City. Lots of wine tastings, food specials and fun. Try it on New Year's Even for a wonderful way to start a new year.

“Very Different place”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Nice atmosphere, delicious food on the French side, but unusual entrees. If you have any fussy eaters go elsewhere, but if want to experience unique culinary delights this is a good choice close to South Park Mall.

“to expensive for what it is.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have no problem paying a chunk of change for a good meal and good atmosphere. This had ok food and not wonderful atmosphere. The tables are way to close together. The lighting was way to bright. The waiter was not all that attentive.

“Inventive & delicious”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Excellent food & good service! I had salmon with chèvre, vase salad ( delicate lettuce presented in a sesame cracker vase ) amazing!! The crab cake was moist and savory. The chocolate pecan torte was my favorite. It's a small place but the food was delicious and the service was good. The waiter recommended a good wine too.
