Had to wait for seating although place was not busy. After being seated there was another wait before staff came to take order. Something wrong with management overseeing customer service. Order placed and service got better. Food was delicious and moderately priced at that!

We walked here from the comfort suites hotel and found it to be a good value and good food. It is nicely decorated and the food was at a good price. I appreciate the nightly specials.

Food was less than on past visits. Very slow to make it to the table. Two of the four dishes were overcooked. We like Zio's but this visit was not to past standards.
