Pizzeria | Deep Ellum, Dallas

The service was a little slow when arrived but granted we were there super early for dinner at 4:30pm to make a concert. Other than the service starting off a bit slow everything else was great. The drinks specials, happy hour apps, atmosphere, were all fantastic. The bruschetta and wood fire pizzas came out quick and were so yummy! Highly recommend! We also got a call the day of to confirm our reservation which was a nice touch. More

Such a great experience. Only caveat was that towards the end I became uncomfortably stuffed but that was me to blame because I ate everything in sight! You are able to take home anything you chose not to eat. More

Went with my husband for a casual date night and was pleasantly surprised I hadn't been down to the Farmers Market area for a while and it had built up a lot. The restaurant had a casual friendly vibe. Their happy hour went all night so I enjoyed a Larita which is a delicious Margarita - type cocktail. The menu had ample options for my vegan diet as well as my cornivore husband's so choosing was difficult. We settled on their (vegan) spring roll to start which was a delightful explosion of bright and spicy flavor and textures. I ordered the (vegan) mushroom pasta bolognese which was the kind of warm comfort food I was seeking, full of tomato and spice. It was lighter on the (kelp) noodles than I would have liked. My husband got his meat fix by ordering the Texas Star Bowl, which had flavorful strip steak, wilted spinach and fibgerling potatoes. He was super happy with his meal. He ate all of it. We couldn't deny ourselves the opportunity to try their Brown Betty - which is a (vegan) pear crumble. It's rare to eat a dessert that I feel is both healthy and delicious but this was it. My husband and I were really pleased with the casual feel and the outstanding menu options felt like a real value for a true farm-to-table meal. We will definitely be returning and bringing our friends with us. More

I was already been to Zatar, and every time I went there I had always a great time. The food is amazing, the service is very good and the place is so nice! It was my birthday and they surprised me with a dessert with candle, it’s been incredibly sweet of them! Definitely recommend it! More

My only complaint is that the note on my reservation was not acknowledged. I requested to sit on the rooftop, but never having been there before, asked that they call me if my request was not able to be accommodated. This didn’t happen, so I was a little disappointed when i was told that it was “open seating” and “going to be impossible to find a spot” upon arrival. That being said, our dinner was delicious. The hospitality we received from our waiter added a special touch. It was an intimate space to spend a birthday dinner & date night with my boyfriend, even with the noise coming from upstairs. More
