Delicious Food, but kind of Expensive

I used to eat here regularly when it was under the former owners. The quality of food is just as good, and maybe a little better, but portions seem to have become smaller. I had one of the evening specials, jumbo shrimp with mango salsa topping, sauteed vegetables and rice. The sauteed... read more

A family group of 8 persons went to Zuni Grill two weeks ago. We received our entrees in a timely fashion, but then we waited for 2 hours before any mains appeared, and we didn't even see a waiter for those two hours. Our host was too preoccupied with the rest of the table, and didn't think to go to... More

I went for lunch with my girlfriends based on the reviews. One ordered a chicken Casear with the daily soup, tomato basil, one ordered the butter chicken wrap special with the tomato basil soup and I ordered the smoked meat sandwich. My friends' lunches were okay, but the soup was wonderful, hot and tasty. My shoestring fries were very greasy... More

The food was exceptional and obviously created by a creative master chef. This is a gem folks. Get in on it before he moves to a more appreciative city.

Food: We were four people and we each ordered something different. None of us were disappointed. The food was fresh, with the vegetables coming straight from the garden. Everything was nicely seasoned and overall delicious! And the presentation of the desserts was very artistic. Atmosphere: The owner/chef works hard to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. It is nice to... More

This is the third time I have been to this little spot, and the food is always delicious. If you are in the West end, you should really make a point to spot in.

We went here on a whim on a Saturday night for dinner. The owner/chef and his wife greeted us warmly and quickly seated us. We were the only other table in the restaurant at this time. The chef came to explain his specials and take our order. Food was delicious! Everything is so fresh and tasty! Prices are very reasonable!... More

The husband and wife team at Zuni are possibly the kindest and sweetest in the business. The supreme simplicity, but heart felt service and food is felt accutely. You will not find a tastier or better priced bruger and fries, all made right in front of you in their open kitchen, for a better price. Did I mention it's a... More

We had dinner here tonight.. The place has the same quirkily charming décor it had before, and the menu, although different under the new owners, is still intriguingly eclectic. We found the food very good, and enjoyed the caring and friendly couple who cooked and served us. We also loved that it was a quiet and relaxing place to eat... More
