Fantastic food. I can taste the passion and love the executive chef Brandon Hicks, who used to work at a Michelin starred restaurant, has for food. The olive oil cooked with omelette adds a nice healthy, Mediterranean taste. Food is fresh and creative. I got the omelette with everything, including feta cheese, mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, avocado, onions,
Friendly, attentive customer service.
Absolutely amazing Mediterranean cuisine in the head of downtown Berkeley!
I came here with my family. We got a lot of small plates, so I had a chance to try a lot of the menu. Suffice it to say, from the 3 dips and the cheese cigars appetizers to the octopus, everything was beautifully done. Perfectly fresh, imaginatively realized, and wonderfully flavorful.
I didn't even think I liked Mediterranean food. This is crazy good!
I recently went to Zino to grab a drink and had such a nice time that I think it is one of my new favorite spots in Berkeley! I sat at the bar and Hana made me the most delicious drink called "spill the tea", and pointed me to some veggie options on the menu. She was friendly, attentive, and all of her recommendations were great. I will absolutely come back to Zino in the future after the amazing service I received. Thanks, Hana!
