    As a commercial interior designer I would recommend additional vertical hanging acoustic panels for noise dampening.

    Service was poor. Waited 1 1/2 hours for food. Never saw the waiter, didn't pour water or wine or check in . Food was very average for the price. One dish was very spicy and waiter did not advise ahead of time. We left very frustrated and unsatisfied.

    Food was good, went for my anniversary with my girlfriend, on OpenTable it asked if we were celebrating anything and I said our anniversary. It was never mentioned in the restaurant, didn’t get us a nicer table either seemed to be redundant. Also server seemed to be overwhelmed all night, she came to the table one for drinks and then to order food and wasn’t back until we wanted the bill

    You can never go wrong with Zambri's! Consistently excellent food and experienced thoughtful service. Great balance of keeping the classics but offering variety of new dishes, all at varying price points. There is a reason it has maintained its spot as a top restaurant in the city for so long.

    Delicious food expertly prepared! What more do you need to know. Very cool atmosphere to boot - especially loved the lighting. (Music a tad loud, but after a short while, you get very used to it - cool jazz :)) Oh yes, and a great wine list.

    Service was excellent as always, and the food was delicious. I came with a sister visiting and she thoroughly enjoyed her meal. My only problem was the tiramisù was off, it wasn’t as creamy as it usually is. It was very watery but still tasted good. The panacotta was amazing.

    Turned away at the door as we were 5 minutes early for our reservation. When we finally got seated, the ambience was nice. We ordered a Spritz and appies, which were both just okay, and a bit overpriced. The main courses were both extremely overcooked, and flavorless other than salt. The pasta was grainy and over sauced, the crispy pork was dry and deep-fried with little flavor. For dessertwe tried the tiramisu, the custard was delicious but the sponge/ladyfingers were over soaked and soggy to an unpleasant point. All in all I would not recommend.

    Great experience all around....as usual! My family all had pizza and pasta but I had the duck feature as my main course. It was delicious, cooked perfectly with a very tasty seasoning and accompaniments. I always love the selection of Italian wines. Tonight was no exception as I had the Gavi Brut and a Sangiovese that paired perfectly with the duck. 1st rate service and experience all around. No less than I've come to expect each and every time I've dined at Zambris!

    It was a bustling busy Friday and there were two larger parties as well as a full dining room. The servers seemed a bit overwhelmed at times but everything was top notch all the way round. Chef Peter’s food came out from the kitchen in an organized and timely manner and it was all delicious. Particularly the Caesar salad (best dressing I’ve had in a long time) and a feature pasta with lobster mushrooms. Excellent cocktails as well.

    Our less than interested server seemed disappointed when we didn't order and expensive bottle of wine, forgot my daughters wine order all together. Took some appy orders the disappeared.The Appys were weak, 6 olives split in half for $4,a very salty small serving of braised greens, stale focaccia bread and an undressed caesar salad.When we finally were able to waive the server over, we ordered our mains.No comments ,no inter-action just "half or full"portion? The orecchiette was ample in size, super salty again and lacked evidence of the advertised sausage, was it ground so finely we couldn't see it?Not sure. I have visited Zambri's over the years, since it's inception in a strip mall beside London Drugs to it's new fancy atrium digs.My last 2 visits were decent, but this one was quite a disappointment.The place was packed, I hope it was just a one off for us!

    I think it is very cheap of them to charge $5 for 4 small pieces of focaccia bread and then an additional $4 for the accompanying olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I think it would be a better practise to add $1 to every entree and include these items. I doubt that I will return
