I had catered meals at the hotel for a work meeting, as well as the breakfast in ZuZu. Fresh berries everyday were excellent, as was the array of available foods. They provided yogurts, scrambled eggs, bacon, etc., and it was ALL GOOD. And their coffee and espresso were excellent, and I'm a coffee snob! :)

After checking out the offerings at several Scottsdale area restaurants for Christmas Day dinner, the price/offerings at ZuZu seemed worth the try. They did not appear to jack up prices for the holiday as most of the others we checked on did. Featured was the Slow Roasted Prime Rib with all the trimmings for $29. The portions/taste of the Prime... More

Patrick who served us is one of the most professional, outstanding servers for his knowledge of the menu, his knowledge of the hotel and it's history was remarkable. He astonished us when he told us this was only his second week on the job. His descriptions of the menu and the questions my daughter, husband and I had were answered... More

I live in the area and even as a local I don't get sick of ZuZu. I've come here for breakfast, lunch, and late night drinks/snacks. I love the atmosphere and the food - they have everything from a yummy tender filet to a light salad or sandwich. I have yet to try their desserts! The restaurant is relaxing and... More

My boyfriend and I had brunch here last weekend. I had the chicken breakfast sandwich and he had the waffle. We both enjoyed espresso. The food was average, sort of an upscale Denny's.

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...
