My wife and I enjoyed an excellent dinner here while visiting St. Pete for a Wedding. We did some searches on a place to enjoy a great meal based on the menu, the chef and the reviews and found Z Grille. We were not disappointed. The food exceeded our expectations with their creative menu. You could tell immediately that Z... More

We came upon this restaurant while exploring downtown St. Petersburg. Our visit was on a Sunday afternoon. There were plenty of seats available in a great atmosphere. Various seating options provide different experiences. We sat along the window on a long bench with pillows. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. She recommended the Dr. Pepper ribs and devilled eggs.... More

This is one restaurant in St Petersburg that you must try! Owners, Zach and Jen, have built a terrific place, with great atmosphere and amazing food. Our favorites are the Dr Pepper ribs, the Cali eggs, and the oysters. Happy hour or late night, this is a great place to eat!

Found this place by accident and it was a gem in that neighborhood. The food was excellent and well presented. My colleagues and I enjoyed the food tremendously.

We went for a birthday celebration. The deviled eggs were great and then it went down hill FAST. The main dishes were awful, too much salt and the toughest steak EVER. The hamburger was so small you could barely see it. The drinks were watered down. When we talked to the manager she yelled at us and acted crazy. Save... More

I have been there a few times before, and was happy to see they still had their deviled eggs and Dr Pepper Ribs (even if only now appetizer size). Those were both delicious - the rest of the meal was sub-par. Everything was just overseasoned, between the overseasoned steak and the jalapeno mashed potatoes, it just confused my mouth. I... More

While I wanted to Love the place I was disappointed as it was a Janes Beard Award winner. The Z Bigger was over done I expected the foie gras and pork belly would pop unique flavors but it did not My husband had chicken where you found two Hairs in it We wanted to love it

I was hoping this incident would go away but, alas, it dibn't. We frequently take clients, family and friends there. Last time one of us ordered one of their entree salads. When it arrived he asked for some bread. No. Chef wouldn't offer any. We'll pay. No. Our server was in tears when she relayed this fiat. We won't go... More

We were told to stop into this cute little restaurant by two friends who don't know each other. Both told us to try the Dr. Pepper Ribs. How could we say no? We intended to have dinner here, but the menu is very eclectic and I'm not really a foodie, but we did order the ribs and they were absolutely... More

Z Grille has a great atmosphere downtown St. Pete with friendly servers. However, we waited at least 10 minutes before a server acknowledged us. I ordered the Clementine drink ($10) and I think I got a whole 5 sips from it. My husband ordered a beer and he liked it but not at $8 price point. Our meals were good... More
