“Owe this one to Tripadvisor”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

So we are on a road trip, going through Oregon and find ourselves in Bend. Check out TA and come up with Zydeco for dinner. What a find! Wonderful service. Great beer on tap. My wife, who is almost a veggie, was in bliss with the artichoke starter and her dinner. My creole jambalaya was outstanding. I have had my share of creme brulee, and the one served this night was one of the best I have ever had. For sure a place to try, and lucky for the locals!

“food okay, not great service”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by a few different people, so maybe it was just an off night. It was our Anniversary dinner and a real dissapointment. not great service (our waiter was never around, but when the kitchen delivered the meals they were all friendly) food was ok. we ordered the BBQ shrimp everyone raves about but she never brought it (never charged us either, simply forgot) salads and steak average. overall disappointing; especially b/c we chose to spend our 19th anniversary there.

“Our 'go to' place for a great dinner!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Zydeco always delivers....on quality, service and the best flour-less chocolate cake! Had the duck for dinner, pork sandwich at lunch and love the spinach salad.

“Consistently amazing.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is our go-to spot for fine dining in Bend because you can rely on exceptional service and food every time. The menu changes just enough to keep it interesting, while preserving the local favorites. Seasonal ingredients + chef's willingness to tailor to individual needs/requests makes for incredible meals. There is frequently a wait and unfortunately no good waiting area so the entrance is cramped and unwelcoming, but once you get seated prepare for top-notch service. Friendly and helpful.

“Fun little place!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Service was exceptional! Courteous and very fast. We were there on New Year's Eve and it was very very busy and full. Yet we had the full attention of our wait staff. Impressed by that. Not so impressive was the cheesy folding chairs at our table. Really? You don't have nicer chairs when you have extra guests?

Food was good - one of our group has special food needs and she found just what she wanted from the gluten free menu.

Food was good - good reviews from the others at our table. My shrimp etouffee was not that good. But I would go back!
