“Fabulous, from start to finish...”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This was our second time to dine at Cafe Zenon (we live 2 1/2 hours away). After our first experience there, we knew we HAD to meet our friends there for dinner this trip. The waiter was great - we were seated promptly and the service was unobtrusively responsive and anticipatory. The food -- AMAZING! All five of us were oooing and ahhing over each bite (a bit like the scene from 'When Harry met Sally') - and we all had to take tastes from each other's plates. The fish was prepared perfectly. The reduction sauce on the green peppercorn steak was rich and flavorful (so much so that our 15 yr old daughter did not waste a single drop, she soaked it up with a piece of bread). And the desserts were also quite fabulous. A perfect evening - great food shared with great friends.

“Impeccable service, ambiance, flavor & presentation - the whole package”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Just a short stroll from the UO campus and around the corner from the famed Saturday Market, Cafe Zenon could be a bistro on the Champs Elysses - except the service is far superior at this Eugene landmark. My daughter, husband and I had brunch on the Saturday before Mother's Day and we all enjoyed the experience. Although the interior seemed loud, the table we asked for on the sidewalk couldn't be beat. There was even a dog at the next table, a la Paris. The linens and table service were very nice. And, when was the last time you remember a waiter taking your order, and that of the whole party, without a pad and pencil?! My husband had the grilled chicken sandwich, I chose the quiche and my daughter had the knee deep burger with a side of to-die-for cream of salmon soup. Everything was perfectly delicious and the service was perfection; attentive, but not hovering. We can't wait to go back!

“Amazing Lentil soup”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We stumbled on Cafe Zenon, apparently a Eugene favorite. Crowded on a Sunday afternoon, but excellent service. The waiter, ( he said he was the owners son) could ave been a model for training waiters. He scanned the dining room, repeatedly looking at each of his tables, ready to help the diners when they wanted something. He never interrupted our conversation with " is everything okay?". Excellent food. The best lentil soup I've ever had -- in 50 years of soup tasting. Wish I had attempted to get the recipe.

“The food was good - the service was sloooooooow”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

We stopped in here for lunch while in Eugene. It was a Monday about 1:00 PM and the place was less than half full. It took over five minutes to get seated. It appeared that the servers had some sort of debate over where we should be seated, and then we had to wait for them to set a table even though there were many tables already set. We each ordered a sandwich, and it seemed like it too way too long for them to come out. We were not expecting fast food restaurant speed, but it was slow. It took 10 minutes after we were finished to get a check.

The food, on the other hand, was great! I had a pulled pork sandwich and my wife had a Reuben. I would recommend either of those.

We're not going to write Cafe Zenon off - we would try it again although we're not in Eugene all that much.
