We ate at Zelo, Friday, April 13, 2012, and found it to be an enjoyable dining experience.
First, we found the decor and atmosphere pleasant and not excessively noisy.
Next, I cannot say enough about our server. She was friendly, professional, and helpful. She had a good sense of humor and interacted well with us. At the same time, she was never intrusive.
When it came to the menu, we were very much impressed. The restaurant alters it menu on a seasonal basis and the chef uses as many "locally grown" ingredients as possible. What we especially appreciated is the fact that most items come with two prices based on portion size. With so many restaurants serving outrageously large portions (Olive Garden, Old Country Buffet, etc.), it was nice to have some control over the number of calories consumed. We were even asked whether we wanted bread (I guess a trend in the restaurant business). We did want the bread, and it was really good. The lasagna I had was excellent.
I found the price of our night dining out to be reasonable.
I can say with all honesty that, if you are in downtown Minneapolis a trip to Zelo will not disappoint.
