Had dinner here at the recommendation of several locals. They don't accept reservations, so when we arrived at 7 or so we put our name on the wait list. Because it was an hour and a half wait we went next door for a drink. Either go early, late or don't be in a hurry. The place was packed. Once... More

This is my first time visiting Napa and first time having tapas, we decided on this restaurant to try out from other positive reviews and we were not disappointed. we loved everything we ordered. There are many selections to choose from and wished we could tried them all. This restaurant was not very big and there are 5 of us,... More

My husband and I came to ZuZu on the recommendation of one of the bartenders at a wine bar. Neither of us had had tapas before so we were a little apprehensive, but decided to take the plunge. Needless to say, we are now BIG fans of tapas! I am mostly vegetarian, so it was awesome to find options for... More

We arrived in Napa after the 8 hour drive from San Diego and needed to get out and stretch and enjoy some of the famous Napa culinary fair. We walked up Main street looking for the place we would use as our prelude to 3 days of wine tasting. We saw people coming out of Zuzu's smiling and chatting it... More

We had a group of 7 for dinner. We had spent the day together on a vineyard tour and decided to have dinner together. We were sat upstairs. Food was good. Nice selections on the menu. THe one negative was that our server was not friendly at all. She seemed bothered to be there.

We had a lovely tapas dinner at Zuzu. There were four of us and our waiter suggested that we each order 2 tapas so we had 8 in total...and of course we had their sangria. The food was amazing....you must try the Paella, the shrimp, the crouquetas, the lamb chops...all very delicious! And for all the food and drinks we... More

My family enjoys tapas so we were excited about trying ZuZu while we were on vacation. Maybe we were tired, maybe it was an off night but everything about the experience was lousy. We sat down at the bar while we waited on our table. The bartender was friendly but said they didn't serve soft drinks like Diet Coke. He... More

Friends and family gathered for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed the small plates and sharing that is featured at Zuzu. Service was friendly and very helpful with recommendations for wine and menu selections. We began with olives and spicy roasted almonds. The shaved sunchoke and portabella mushroom salad should not be missed and the plate of different spanish jamons was... More

It was nice to find a restaurant in Napa that offered something a little different from heavy steak and seafood. The two of us ordered 3 hot tapas--all terrific. The shrimp was excellent (I completely disagree with another review of it) and was my favorite with a garlicky sauce that we sopped up with bread. We also had the pork... More

I wish I could recommend Zuzu, as I love finding tapas/Spanish restaurants. However, I did not find the cuisine to be truly authentic and was quite ill from it the next day. The paella didn't have a strong saffron flavor and the croquettes were chicken, not ham (as is customary in Spain). We also had a shrimp dish that I... More
