The salads do not have romaine or leaf lettuce. They have field greens. the Salad dressing is great. The food was great and so was the service. I will be back.

I have to start by saying that I have previously been a fan of Zona's - even bringing friends and neighbors here in the past. I am now undecided if I will be returning. Our family and another family visited Zona's for dinner last night and sat in a semi-private enclosed room, as we had a party of 9 in total. Service was a bit slow (several drinks were forgotten about and we didnt see waitstaff often perhaps because of the "semiprivate" room...?), and we received our meal in 3 deliveries, largely due to the fact that one adult pasta entree and one kid's meal were forgotten by either the waitress or the kitchen. We had been finished for quite awhile and my husband eventually sought out the front desk host to track down our waitress for boxes and the check. I had an expired Groupon that had an original value of $50 (promotional value would have been worth $100 if i had used it in the allotted window of time.) I explained this to the waitress and showed her the Groupon on my phone so she could record the numbers to redeem it. However, she only credited our check $25, so I actually lost $25 on the deal. And because we had been waiting 20 minutes to leave at this point on a school night with 4 kids who had run out of patience we just ended up leaving, rather than investing more time in the check out process. I don't understand how the system could have allowed them to not give us the full original paid value of the Groupon without either the waitress or manager figuring this out.....the voucher # corresponds to an amount which they then applied incorrectly. And this morning I checked the voucher and it says redeemed in full. Lame.

From Our Editors

One of the most-visited Italian restaurants in San Clemente, Zona's offers good bacon wrapped dates. Not interested in the bacon wrapped dates? They have a menu with plenty of options. Expect a reasonable price and a lovely staff in a casual atmosphere that's worth the visit.

If you're trying to plan your week, most people will be quick to point out that later in the week (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) is the best time to visit. Also, you'll definitely want to take advantage of its outdoor seating when you want to kick back and relax in the Cali sun. It should be noted that casual attire is encouraged. Also, if you're in the mood for tunes, it's a great option for live music.

At some point, everyone should try the pasta, the steak, or the shrimp, as each one will impress. In terms of the restaurant itself, it's been tabbed as a nice option for both families with children and large groups. Along with its outdoor seating arrangements, it's one of the few dog-friendly restaurants in the area and in addition to its convenient take-out offerings, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you're looking for a good spot to hit up after work, it's got a popular happy hour and pretty decent selection at its bar.

A good option for both lunch and dinner in San Clemente, making a trip to Zona's is never a bad call. The service, in general, is "helpful" and "fantastic," and food is "fresh" and "wonderful." Specifically, the burger is touted to be "good," Also, its entertainment is known to be "great," while the band is "happy," and the bar area is "friendly" and "nice." Don't worry about trying to find a spot on the street, as visitors to the restaurant do have access to a private parking lot nearby. Would you rather ride there? Bike parking is also provided.
