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

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 vegetables were quite creative and delicious, the advertised... 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

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
