“Don't Pass this Bistro Up!”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We found this place using a Living Social coupon. Most of these coupon places are not worth visiting a second time and paying full price. ZacJack is the exception. Located right off U.S. Hwy 50 at the Cameron Park exit south on the way to Lake Tahoe is close enough for the Sacramento Valley folks to take the short drive up for this food. Everyone in our group enjoyed items from the Sat/Sun Brunch menu and everything was the best. Their regular prices won't gag you and the food and service are excellent. Dine in or on the patio. They have a comforting menu but the preparation and unique blend of foods make dinning a joy again! We will go back again, and again!

“Great Service; waiters & bar staff really good.”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

The service was great; but the meal was not. Food was undercooked or not what we ordered w/no explanation. Carrot cake is delicious.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 11 December 2012 via mobile

Poor service!
We had to wait around 10 minutes just to get water. They weren't busy. We were maybe the 8th table. The owner? Was the worst! Poor service with a very negative attitude.

“Great Lunch Stop”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Our lunch items were excellent. Macaroni and cheese, stuffed artichokes, and mushroom flatbread......the small plates are BIG so we had plenty left over for dinner. Lovely greaseless preparations.

Very enjoyable.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

This was our second visit to this Cameron Park eatery. The first was for lunch and during this visit we had dinner. Both meals were excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. For lunch, we had "grilled cheese" sandwiches, which are anything but the old grilled cheese most of us grew up eating. These were cheesy and bursting with flavor. My wife had the mushroom ragout grilled cheese with black truffle aioli. I had the short rib grilled cheese with blue cheese slaw, crispy onion rings and bordelaise dipping sauce. Both of these choices were excellently conceived and prepared. Chef John Evans says he opened ZacJack Bistro to provide everyday gourmet cuisine at affordable prices. For our money he has succeeded most admirably. At last night's dinner, we both began our meals with the half Caesar entree salads. Perfectly dressed Romaine lettuce with the Bistro's tangy dressing. For our entrees, we each had the duck confit, crispy on the outside and moist and juicy inside, and served with a cherry sauce on the side. The duck sat atop a crispy potato latke and came with sauteed tender baby squashes and olives. At $14, these were excellent entrees. Our waiter was very friendly and quite expert at explaining each of the evening's special entrees. The restaurant decor is French bistro. It is airy and clean with a small patio for dining al fresco. The restaurant has a very nice moderately priced wine list and a fine selection of beers. As I said, this was our second experience at ZacJack Bistro and it certainly won't be our last. This is much welcomed addition to El Dorado County's limited dinning choices.
