Good place but no Trader Vic's

Good solid restaurant with perhaps slightly better food but no where near the same vibe as Trader Vic's that used to be at the Hotel Valley Ho

I'm glad you enjoyed the restaurant. If you're craving Polynesian food, I recommend Hula's Modern Tiki, a wonderful restaurant within walking distance. More

I love Cafe ZuZu. I usually ate breakfast outside on the lovely patio. I love the retro style of ZuZu. My servers were well versed and very friendly. A-1 service!!!

I took a friend to brunch at Cafe Zuzu for her birthday. What a great choice! First off, when you enter the hotel lobby and then the restaurant, we were stuck by the authentic mid-century modern decor. It was like stepping back into the'60s. Second, we were greeted by extremely friendly and gracious staff - the hostess who showed us... More

Didn't expect this type of food from a hotel. Some of the bigger chain hotels should take a lesson. Gives the resturants in the area a run for their money. Quite surprising and well worth it. Great value.

Nothing pre-packaged or pre-made. Fresh fruit, home made granola, heirloom salads, etc are typical fare. We especially liked special drink nights such as Whiskey Thursday and Wine Wednesday at the bar.

The food and service here were fantastic. We were here only one day (at the hotel - see my review for more). They had great happy hour deals from 4-7 - you must try the green chile pork; it as outrageously delicious. The steak salad was very good, and the breakfasts similarly so.

We made reservations for a chef's table event not knowing what to expect. It was fantastic! Thank you Patrick for being so attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wines featured for the evening. You made our night that much better!

Surprisingly good food for a restaurant attached to the Valley Ho hotel and in the touristy area of Scottsdale. We had dinner on the patio. The crowd seemed to mostly business people and customers of the hotel. Our server was Melissa and she was very good. Warm dinner buns were provided with our dinner. This was probably the least interesting... More

We were staying at the hotel and arrived hungry on a Saturday night. We tried to eat at a place downtown, but there was an hour wait, so we tried here on a whim. Well, that ended up to be a great decision! The burgers were excellent and so was the red velvet waffle for breakfast (will post a pic)... More
