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

I arrived at this restaurant at 13:30 and the chef/owner showed me to a table and gave me a menu. He set up a little heater beside me because it was a little chilly and advised me of the daily special, which I ordered. He brought my green tea immediately and I could hear him preparing the food while I... More

I just had lunch at Zuni Cafe, and it is a little gem waiting to be explored. It wasn't too busy which was a good thing and a shame at the same time.I'm not sure if folks know about this place, but it was great to get in, seated and served right away for Friday lunch.

We've been there five or six times over the years but this was the first time since the new owners took over. The dinner menu has changed but continues to be interesting. Although limited it offers a surprising variety of food. I had a spicy Mediterranean pasta and my wife had the buttered chicken. Both were very good, and particularly... More

Picking up a pizza next door at Parti Pizza I noticed Zuni's was advertising Breakfast and Lunch, now. Turns out they are new owners (past 2 months) and the breakfast I had today was terrific. Eggs cook perfectly and thick juicy ham, rye toast and home fries (yum) with cant elope to finish! Haven't yet tried dinner but will soon.... More

I have been to Zuni Grill a number of times over the years and always enjoyed the food. The previous owner was creative and usually had interesting and tasty specials and excellent desserts. I was at the restaurant today with a friend and was disappointed in the menu options, not that the food was bad, just ordinary. I had the... More

We stopped in for a quick bite, and could not have been more impressed. The service, food, and timing were all top notch. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We live in Ottawa, and this is a great little restaurant. It has many choices with different types of food...very unique. It is in the suburbs, so if staying downtown, it is a 20 minute drive.

I just visited Zuni Grill for the first time with 3 friends. We had heard good things about the place from friends who frequently ate there. The waiter was wonderful - very pleasant and efficient. Our meal started off with delicous warm buns - the best part of the meal! I had the Mediterranean Aromatico with pasta. A nice combination... More
