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).

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.
