Yummy dinner

This trendy, beautiful restaurant had excellent service and a very affordable 4-course tasting menu. Don't miss the sangria!

I will start off by saying that yes, this is an expensive restaurant, very expensive. I dined out with my husband on our 6 year annivesary and we spent $130 and I think we got off lightly. But the whole point of going to a restaurant like this is that you are paying for quality and excellent service, which believe... More

Very fancy and lovely atmosphere. The food is delicious, a great place to enjoy wine pairings. The staff is courteous and friendly.

Restaurant is warm and cozy. Pisco Sours (drink specialty) were wonderful! European style menu with beef as their specialty. The four of us each had something different, and all the food was wonderful. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had dinner at Zazu last week. The meal was good, but for us it did not live up to the reviews that the restaurant has received. The food was fine but nothing stood out. The service was acceptable, but again, not great. We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. If we were there... More

They work hard to serve tasty food with interesting twists and combinations. Good selection of appetizers, main dishes and deserts. We had the fish special and enjoyed it. Try a martini that uses a local liquor. Easy $5 taxi ride from the Hilton.

I've been here once. While the quality of the food was great, very fresh, and done just right, I must say this isn't my style of restaurant. The portions are boutique-ishly small and expensive. The ambiance is fancy, but has too much lighting, which draws away the romantic feel.

We had a great dinner at Zazu from start to finish as the cocktails were unique and the food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. The ceviche and carpaccios were perfectly balanced and the tuna and swordfish we had were perfect (the tuna, cooked on lava stones, was particularly lovely). This is a great spot not only for a special occassion... More

Wonderful seafood, great, knowledgeable staff. Beautiful all around. Was in town on business and the group of us came for dinner. I brought fancy wine and we weren't disappointed in the meal. Good wine list there, too. Lots of Chilean and Argetinian and Californian bottles.
