Not surprised to read the bad reviews on here as my experience with Zibibbo was absolutely unacceptable. I held a company event with them and paid for a variety of passed hot appetizers to be passed during the event. They were passed for about 30 minutes, after which they decided to place them on the tables where they of course got cold. Appetizers that are meant to be eaten hot are not appetizing when they are cold, so of course most of them did not get eaten. The wait staff was no where to be found. When I called to complain the next day for their lack of service I was given excuse after excuse. The appetizers stopped being passed because no one was taking them. ???!! Is this really your excuse Zibibbo? I paid for passed appetizers! I don't care if the waiters stood there with trays in their hands all night. When i asked to be compensated, I was given the measly server fee of $150. I paid over 8 grand for the event, surely my dissatisfaction is worth more than that, especially since I got nowhere near what I paid for. For being such a well established restaurant, you sure do have crappy customer service. I highly suggest if you are thinking of having an event here, that you think again and find someplace that maybe doesn't "claim" to be a great restaurant and actually is. I'll even help you find one.

Friendly service and tasty food. Amazing coconut sorbet, and I usually can't stand coconut.

We just had dinner at Zibibbo. It was ok. I wouldn't come back here just because it's too pricey and the food was just ok. It's a big restaurant. It's not very cozy. The only cozy place is the bar section with the couch and a quiet street in the front and the little patio. But the big room of the restaurant is not very nice and looks like a diner. Feels cold. We had our table in the bar room which was nice but the service there isn't the best. Pretty slow. As an appetizer we had the mushroom bruschetta which is cold, the pita&tzatziki and the pork plate which my husband really liked. The Linguine Pasta with shrimp, the rosemary chicken and the mahi mahi were all good but not worth the price I think.

The Chanterelles tasted like an old rubber tire would, horrible texture and no flavor. The baked macaroni was glooopy, stringy, and again flavorless. Could only take one bite. The minestrone was slightly cold (probably microwaved), with awkwardly shaped vegetables, but half edible. The baby leaf salad brought to me that I hadn't ordered was covered in oil. My friend laughed that the meatballs were "maybe the worst (he'd) had". I think the hummus was straight from Trader Joe's. The pita served with it was not warmed. Had to ask twice for a bread basket. The bread was good. The menu selections were terrible. But, maybe it was just those SIX selections. BUT! It's pretty inside, and quiet. The waitress was accommodating, kind and helpful with wine selections. If you're looking for a true fine dining experience, stick to 231 Ellsworth, or Baume if you're into French cuisine.

Zibibbo is a solid choice in Palo Alto. They have a good atmosphere, decent food made from good seasonal ingredients, and the restaurant is large enough that they almost always have availability. It's not a standout by any means, but it also won't disappoint. I've eaten a lot of different things here, but I'd particular recommend the Albondigas (meatballs) on the Antipasti menu, the Israeli Cigars appetizer (potato and chives wrapped in phyllo dough and fried), the pastas and the Salmon. They also have few red meat specials (Prime RIb, Ribeye) on different nights that are also really good. The pizzas aren't anything special. The bar here is a good place to chill out after work - they make a good cosmo.

Second time at Zibibo. First one was pretty good a few months ago, this time around it's a total disappointment. Food and service were definitely low quality for a restaurant of Zibibo level. They would not create a custom cheese and charcuterie plate and charge for tasting the wine?! Paella was the hottest I ever got in a restaurant - it just would not cool off and was impossible to eat like that. On top of all, the place itself is so huge that it's impossible to fill it and it looks pretty empty on a Fri night, even though quantity-wise there is enough people there.
