The food is excellent. The service was friendly and fast. The dress is smart casual (guys-make it a golf shirt instead of a t-shirt however its not required.) They took reservations and it was on time, no delay even though the place was full. Afterward, temperature permitting, you can walk off the delicious food by browsing the art district which... More

I stayed at the hotel, which is the reason I tried the restaurant twice. The first time, when I had drinks, service was terribly slow. The second time, I almost ordered two just so I didn't have to wait so long between drinks. It was a Saturday so I just chalked it up to being a busy night, even though... More

I’m very sorry that you didn’t enjoy your visits to ZuZu. I will absolutely relay your comments about the food and service to our restaurant manager. We use local, organic ingredients and make many of our items in house, including the burger buns, and grinding burgers fresh daily. Our food typically receives great feedback and it’s disappointing to hear that... More

This resturant is located in the Valley Ho hotel which is a very reto (mid century) hotel. Unfortunately we stopped by for breakfast which did not allow us to experience a broader range of offerings. We selected Eggs Benedict and a Parfait and must say that the Parfait was very well prepared which suggests that this resturant may offer some... More

My husband and I ate at Zuzu twice during our recent stay at Valley Ho. You can eat inside but if possible try the outdoor seating. You can sit in comfy retro sofa and chair seating or typical tables under the shade of the awnings. Our waiter, Danny, was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the tuna salad and chicken...

Overpriced, but so good! The filet was perfection and the free breakfast scones and muffins were a nice touch.

Long wait for food and one meal was wrong order. When we questioned about the wrong meal, we received two different responses.

I hadn't eaten at this restaurant in years. The opportunity presented itself when I was being a 'corporate host' for some out of town business guests. We opted for Zuzu since they had a large selection of vegetarian options (beyond your pasta and salad dishes). The food was outstanding as well as the service. We all ordered off of the... More

The service was good but the menu was limited. Not much to choose from. The Ceasar salad was average and not worth the price.

I’m sorry that you didn’t enjoy your visit to ZuZu. We have 20 entrée options for breakfast, 18 for lunch, and 13 for dinner, along with an array of sides and small plates. Our chef prefers to avoid an overly large menu to ensure that ingredients are fresh. We appreciate your feedback. More
