I had the rib eye and my wife had the half rack of ribs. The steak was great and ribs fell off the bone. Service was great and fast. We will go back soon.

we were passing through town on our drive from Washington to Maine and had a hankering for a burger. Zorba's did not disappoint! We both ordered the Bleu Burger, a $10 lunch special and it was divine. Our server was very warm and friendly and the place has a very good vibe. We highly recommend it!

So I have eaten at zorbas a number of times since they opened the Stafford st location, and the only thing that is consistent is the fact it just keeps getting worse. My last visit (and I do mean last] was this past Saturday, what can I say, overpriced, seriously lacking in a lot of ways food. This visit, we... More

This place used to be good. I think having 2 locations is causing them to not run either well. The service is very hit or miss as is the food. It didn't used to be that way. Not sure what happened but if the owner doesn't start paying attention both locations will be closed. There are a lot of good... More

We tried Zorbas a few months ago just to try something new. We have been back several times since. The wait staff are always very friendly and attentive. The only bad meal we've had there was our very last visit, the bottom of our pizza was burnt. But other than that everything there is always very good. We look forward... More

Four of us dined here. From the minute we walked in we were a little put off. We asked about the picture on the wall which appeared to be the restaurant founders. The hostess/waitress said "I have no idea who they are, just Greek people I guess" and went on for a while. We were seated and she came back... More

I ordered the Lemon/orzo soup, hard to find the orzo, put plenty of chicken. My daughter and husband ordered the Meza for $25.00 each got a little sample of different food. I had a Cesar salad with grilled chicken and rice pudding for a desert, overall the food was good.

I have been here only 3 times but have not been disappointed yet. Excellent service. Clean and friendly wait stuff. A little dark though. Too dark. Not a bright place to sit and dine. Feels like night in the middle of the day. I tried something different each visit and no complaints at all.

Well I'm a sucker for Greek food, but seriously this is not one of the best I have tried. Lamb shanks were dry, the green beens were very sour, 1/2 lemon chicken felt like it has been warmed up over and over several time and had a funny taste. Compared to other places in Worcester portions are bigger but portions... More

Typically one of my go to places for a business lunch, 8 of us stopped in for dinner before a show at the Hanover. The food and service were superb! These folks have been in the food & beverage industry for a long time and converted the old Christo's Restaurant to a showplace. Highly recommended.
