Zach is unbelievably talented individual running an amazing one man restaurant. The food was outstanding. Because of celiac disease, we haven't been able to eat a meal like this in more than a few years and I nearly cried because I was so happy. We didn't have a reaction to anything, and are especially sensitive to gluten and contamination (even among celiac individuals). I immediately went and told all of our friends and family about this restaurant and definitely plan on returning to Newport only for this food. Thank you so much Zach for allowing us to enjoy your craft! I couldn't be happier

Zach was the chef and server and was refreshing. Had the tasting course and Zach had it very detailed! Even got a bonus course. At first did not know what to think because the restaurant is in a house but it was worth the experience. Different but relaxing and not the same old restaurant experience that gets old. Will not forget this place!

This was our first time eating at Zach's and it won't be our last. In fact, this restaurant is as good or better than any we've tried in our six months of living in Newport. We loved that the chef is a food geek and sources his ingredients, which are sometimes rare and wonderful, as locally as possible. He has a great list of Oregon wines. The food was interesting, perfectly prepared and delicious. We also enjoyed, on this evening when the restaurant was slow, that the chef served us at table. He's very personable and seemed to enjoy talking about the food and about Newport. Highly recommend, especially if you're looking for something unique.

We celebrated our anniversary dinner at Zach's Bistro and had a lovely time. We were sat at a private table by the window. The restaurant was clean cozy and romantic. We enjoyed the jazz/classical background music. The pace was just right- we did not feel rushed, and were able to relax & enjoy the meal. We were delighted to see the extensive beer and wine list which had interesting and unusual choices. We appreciated the choice of the 3oz, or 6oz pour for the wine so we could taste more with the different courses. Moving on to the food- it was all local and in season selections. We ordered the crab cakes, the duck breast, and the black cod. The crab cakes were the best we've had in Newport or on the Oregon coast so far. They were plump and tender, with only a little breading, to showcase their delicate crab flavor. The Duck was cooked to perfection served with a new delightful variety of toasted cauliflower much like broccolini which we had never tried before. The Black Cod was juicy not over cooked and was served with fresh Oregon chanterelles. For the desert- the chef made an unusual and very delicious goat milk cheese cake topped with a butterscotch sauce served with fresh ripe raspberries & peaches. Im drooling just thinking about it! To top it off Chef Zach put a hand rolled bees wax candle in our desert to wish us a Happy Anniversary. This was such a wonderful restaurant, and it was clear by the service, food, and atmosphere Chef Zach takes pride in what he does, and he does it extremely well. He was knowledgeable, friendly and very professional. We really appreciated this meal and the experience. We will always remember this dinner, and are happy to both return and share this with others. If you are on the fence about this restaurant, its in my opinion one of the best most unique restaurants in Newport, and you will be missing out if you do not dine here. Thank you Chef Zach for making our meal so special, we truly appreciate all you do!

Zach really knocked it out of the park for my wife's birthday, and really made me look good as a husband. The service was fantastic. Zach is an incredibly deft and creative chef. We cleaned each and every one of our plates. This was our first time, but we will be going back here many, many times in our lifetime.

I highly recommend Zach’s Bistro. This restaurant is comparable to some of the best restaurants in Portland. Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly. The owner did a great job of handling being the waiter, the chef, and the bartender. He definitely seems to have a good system in place to do that. He checked on us to see how everything was with each course and it was nice to talk to the chef who prepares the food. We will definitely eat here again the next time we are in the area. I also already recommended it to someone who is more frequently in the area.

Fantastic experience. Intimate without being stuffy. Unique in many ways, it feels like you're dining in someone's home but with a gourmet Chef and wonderful service. Zach run's the show from start to finish and does a wonderful job at doing so. This is easily the best restaurant in Newport Oregon. I've eaten at many on a handful of visits to the area, and there is nothing better than Zach's Bistro. The food id exceptional, there's a large and well thought out wine list (lots of wines by the glass) and the location in Nye Beach is great.

Truly a "10" experience for my husband and I. The food was delicious. We chose the 9-course chefs tasting menu, and each course just kept getting better. The wine pairings were perfect. Our service was personal, answering any questions and we never felt rushed. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience and highly recommend Zach's to others!

Zachs bistro never fails to amaze. It’s basically a one (or two) person show and even so, there aren’t any lengthy delays between courses. The food is well thought out, and Zach is more than willing to accommodate all sorts of dietary preferences / restrictions — I think he looks upon it as a challenge. Go! You will not be disappointed.

We had a wonderful dinner. Our server was friendly and helpful. It was sad to see that there were very few guests. I'm assuming that the first week after Spring Break and with kids starting to go back to in-person schooling, and the COVID pandemic are having an impact. We will definitely be back to Zach"s Bistro and we will spread the word about our great experience to our friends and family! Thanks for a pleasant evening.

We got to eat two meals at Zach’s Bistro during our stay in Newport, and both times were wonderful experiences. Zach’s menus change nightly and each time it was a delight. We highly recommend the salmon chowder and mussel chowder; both were fantastic. Zach is personable and friendly and provided excellent service. We’ll definitely go back the next time we’re in Newport.

This was the second time we have dined at Zach’s and both times have been superb. Although the dining room is modest, Zach ensures that the food, wines and service are stellar. Truly fine dining is rare at the coast, and Nye Beach is so lucky to have an authentic farm-to-table restaurant of this caliber.

Zach’s Bistro is a charming home-like setting with great food and great service. Zach takes care to select high quality fresh ingredients served creatively. He serves some items that you don’t normally find in local restaurants like Huevos Motulenos and offering a choice of three different broths for cooking mussels. He is also very attentive to food allergies and preferences (and remembers them).

Zach's Bistro has the best food I have eaten in Newport! I have eaten many places around the world and the food at Zach's has some of the most delicious food I have eaten anywhere. Zach is very friendly and the restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. I don't usually rave about a restaurant but this place is special.
