Eugene's favorite downtown restaurant re-established in 2009. Better than ever. Eclectic cuisine from around the world on one menu. Lunch and dinner served everyday and brunch on the weekends.

One of my favorite downtown destinations, Cafe Zenon has a wide variety of international foods, drool-worthy looking and tasting desserts, and professional staff. While Zenon is certainly a romantic destination for my partner and I, I also love to dine and read on my own. It has that dreamy European quality that sweeps me into literary meditations.

I went there last night for New Years Eve without a reservation, more than happy to wait for up to an hour. We arrived there and were greeted by the server who asked if we had a reservation. I told him no, but we were happy to wait. He walked away with his list. After waiting for ten minutes, he continued to walk back and forth and ignore us, greet other guests with and without reservations, so we left. I realize it was a busy night, but seriously, basic communication would be nice. Even if it was, "I don't think your chances of getting in are good." We were really looking forward to trying this Eugene favorite for the last year or so, now we are scarred and might be willing to try it--- in 2014.

I used to eat here two or three times a month. I was really relieved when Ib took it over. However, this summer, I've walked away twice after waiting way too long to have the waiter seat me or bring me a menu. Three other times, with friends, we marveled at how the two male waiters made a study of ignoring us. Thank God for Judith, who I now will wait for if her station is full. In this economy, I don't want to see someone lose their job, but those two knuckleheads need to be replaced. Food quality is still very good - thanks, Ib!

Well, Cafe Zenon is back. I want to send a big thank you to the chefs for an amazing meal. Zenon is most definitely the place to take out of town guests, people you want to impress, and people who love great food. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service. Food was tasty and a good value. Nice wines. And full bar. The atmosphere is definitely bistro. Not White tablecloth. But prices are reasonable. .

Our waiter was excellent! The food was excellent! The dessert was excellent! Our bottle of wine was 50% off, just because! Would definitely eat here again and recommend to our friends.

This is one of my favorite places in Eugene. The food is creative and uses local ingredients (this is important to me). It is a fun, cosmopolitan atmosphere. You can eat in or outside on the sidewalk. Wait staff know their stuff and are friendly. I highly recommend this place.
