This was an outstanding dining experience. Everything was delicious and all course were creative. Selected wines paired perfectly with our choices. Compared to other experiences with multi-course high-end meals this is at the top in quality and a wonderful value. Thank you, Chef Zach, for the love you put into your creative, high quality cuisine.

I really enjoyed eating dinner here. The food was very good. Fresh and fancy. Healthy clean tasting food with plenty of flavors. The service was outstanding. I’ve been to many places here in Newport with a full staff and the service is usually awful so this was greatly appreciated. Zach made sure we were happy with every plate and cleared them as soon as we were done. He was a pleasure to meet and I will definitely return.

Zach’s was great. And so was Zach himself. In his small cozy restaurant, Zach single-handedly cooked and served up a delicious, and ambitious, meal. The lamb merguez meatballs were perfectly seasoned, the fish incredibly light and fresh and the crab cake was amazing. Definitely worth going!

Absolutely loved it...a perfect restaurant for a special occasion. They don't have the broad menu that you would get at a "regular" restaurant, but each dish was perfectly crafted. The flavors were amazing and original. Best crab cakes ever, and the prawns had a unique flavor that worked perfectly. The chef clearly puts a lot of thought and energy into each dish...I can only imagine how much experimenting has to happen behind the scenes to make it all work. The drinks menu had many familiar and also original selections. All the food items were gluten-free, and they were flexible about food allergies. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The prices were very reasonable for such excellent quality, and the portions were a decent size...not huge like diner food, but not tiny like some "foodie" restaurants. Everything was very fresh and perfectly prepared. The restaurant was bright and airy and had a warm, friendly vibe...not at all snooty like some gourmet restaurants. But it wasn't as crowded as it "deserves" to be, at least on the night we went. I think maybe the menu is a bit complicated for some people...it's well worth the few minutes it takes to figure it out, but some people may not be used to that. (With the 3 course meal, you get certain choices; with the 5 or 6 course meal, you get others...or you can order a-la-carte.) The fixed seating times may also be a little bit of a turn-off for some people on vacation time. (The restaurant does accommodate walk-ins but some people may not want to take the chance that a table will be available.) Overall we loved it and will definitely be back. (We'd be there every week if we lived nearby.) I can't wait to experience more of their unique creations.

Zach’s is truly a one-person show. Whimsical presentation surprised us every dish. Ling Cod was perfectly cooked. Dessert, a course we usually skip, was a refreshing end to a delicious meal. A true farm-to-table experience. Zach knows where every single ingredient comes from.

The food was excellent. We especially loved the fish stew. We also like the restaurant policy against strong perfumes and lotions; my wife is very sensitive to such things and found the policy very reasonable. Also, we liked the quiet atmosphere with no loud music or other distractions. We plan on being repeat customers.

A unique dining experience. Zack does it all, literally (well, I've heard he's hired a dishwasher). he's the maître de, waiter chef, sommelier and web site designer. Dinner is two or three seating's and the menu offers a 3, 4 or 5 selection choices (starter, salad, etc.) as well as ala carte. There are usually 3 dinner choices and they change every day, but there are themed repeats. We have greatly enjoyed the well presented dinner courses that we have had. As a web designer chef, he's able to make quick changes as his interest and the ingredient availability change. There's an ever changing and very interesting selection wines from lesser know vineyards. You can text you dinner selection ahead of time, and sometimes he will ask you to do so. A 20% gratuity is included in the price of each item. He uses the European style point of sale credit card reader so you hand him your CC and your receipt is emailed if you want one. (Cash also works)

Zach's Bistro is a sparkling gem on the Oregon coast. So glad we discovered this unpretentious fine dining restaurant in Newport. Only wish we found it sooner! Zach is a one-man wonder: host, chef, sommelier, server, and dish washer all rolled into one! Every course was pure delight and the wine selections complemented each dish perfectly. Honestly, there's nothing we can think of that needs improvement. Just keep up the good work, Zach. We look forward to returning the next time we visit the central coast.

Second time dining at Zach's Bistro. It's the best restaurant in Newport OR and the surrounding area, by far. He's an experience chef utilizing high quality, in-season ingredients. Most of the restaurants on the OR coasts are generic tourist traps with unflavorful or frozen food. Zach's Bistro is a beacon of light in a sea of mediocre restaurants. Definitely make his restaurant a part of your vacation if you enjoy good food. Excellent wine list, reasonable prices on the menu. A little unique with all the idiosyncrasies, just be patient and enjoy the experience.

Zach has succeeded in creating a unique culinary experience for his guests. I say "guests," because his relationship with diners is more personal than in the ordinary restaurant. His ingredient choices are fresh and delicious and creatively combined. His crab cakes are the ultimate! We appreciated his holistic approach to our dining experience, there from start to finish. The best meal ever, eaten out. Thank you!

Zach is an artist. Every bite is so beautifully plated, delicious and carefully orchestrated. Like fine wine, the tastes his meals have from the first bite of rustic bread, to his signature cocktails to the main course offerings are interesting, colorful, layered in both complex and nuanced tastes. Also, I was so delighted that he made our favorite dessert chocolate smores, on request (which we had a few years back) when we booked a recent dinner. Eyes to heaven delicious!!

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.

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!

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).

We have eaten at Zach's several times, and the experience is always top notch. The ingredients are fresh and thoughtfully selected; each dish is prepared to order and creatively seasoned by the outstanding chef. Service is attentive, the wine list is extensive, and the atmosphere is pleasant. It's unusual to find a restaurant of this caliber in such a small city. Anyone who enjoys fine dining in a casual atmosphere should go to Zach's Bistro.

Superb food; cozy ambience; creative, innovative chef; sensible yet thorough adjustments to COVID requirements. Friendly chef and waitresses. We have enjoyed many fabulous dinners here when visiting Newport/Nye Beach. (Also available: a WIDE variety of take-out options.) Slightly more expensive than some other places, but worth every penny.
