Description: Deep red walls and rich hardwood accents create an inviting and relaxing setting for an exciting, eclectic meal at Zanzibar. The menu contains numerous original contemporary American dishes with world influences. Two of the most popular items, lahvosh, is an Armenian cracker bread topped with a five-cheese blend, veggies, and a variety of meats and Meatloaf Mignon (this isn’t your mama’s meatloaf). The bar can mix up hand-craft cocktails, over 65 kinds of martinis, and offers an unique wine list. The menu is very vegetarian friendly (any meal can be altered) and contains over 100 gluten-free options. They also create their own spice blends that are available to take home. Reservations are recommended.

Have heard great things about a number of the menu offerings, but I'm hooked on the burger. They pay attention to the flavor details. Foccacia like bun. Blue cheese butter addition. Fresh and delicious. The chocolate cake is a nice, indulgent end to the meal. Wine selection wasn't quite what I was hoping but they offer a rotating special selection that typically fits the bill. Service was friendly and they know how to treat solo diners. Can get busy, so if you know you're in the mood, you might want to call for a reservation.

Our food was very good. I had the shrimp pasta dish, which had a unique curry/cumin taste to it. My wife had the beef and shrimp which was also delicious. Our server did a good job, but she was almost too solicitous--how many times do you need to say "thank you". The restaurant was a bit too noisy for our tastes, and seemed more like a bar than a fine eating establishment. But overall, probably best cuisine in Menomonie (no offense intended).

We were in Menomonie for a family occasion. We went to this restaurant with family who used to run a popular Menomonie restaurant. It was wonderful.

I was very surprised they had perogies on the menu. No one in the party had heard of them even though the mother and aunt of four people was polish. They were delicious.

Everyone was pleased with their order. I had surf and turf and the steak and shrimp were both as good as I've had anywhere. The menu was varied and should please anyone.

I cannot imagine that this is not the best place to eat in Menomonie.

Fantastic food and atmosphere, a big surprise for little town of Menomonie. Dare to try the lahvosh, like a super flat bread pizza, but better. I got the Tuscan, it was highly recommended by the waitress, and did not disappoint. Fabolous!
