The tapas were on point but there was a bit of a wait and when we were sat, it was very crowded. I'd still recommend if you want tapas but I would not suggest this as a quite dining experience.

Savory food and Gracious staff- obviously they are well taken care of because it's apparent how happy and professional they are. The food speaks for itself. Ambience is lovely. Love this place and can't wait to get back! Worth the wait people!

Zuzu was one of the first places to signal the renaissance of dining in downtown Napa, and well over a decade later they're still doing a fantastic job. The Southern Spain-style tapas are served in a friendly & busy atmosphere. Longtime favorites like the Argentine skirt steak and the Moroccan lamb chops are almost always on our order. Very popular... More

This restaurant is located in the heart of Napa's downtown. The tapas were amazing. I highly recommend eating here. The atmosphere was great and so was the service.

This was recommended by a group I met on a wine tour. It has great reviews on yelp as well. Very good tapas place on Main st. It can get crowded around 7. The food was amazing. They had a peach salad on the menu that was delicious. The flank steak was flavorful. They have an extensive wine menu as... More

The wait to get in to Zuzu is indicative the wonderfully tasty food you find inside. Yes, it's a bit noisy but the quality of the food more than compensates. We were only 2 people so we did not have a chance to enjoy all the dishes we would want to but the ones we had were bursting with flavour.... More

To be honest I should rate Zuzu a 5 but we only a few appetizers and a few glasses of wine. Maybe the best lamb chops as a appetizer, ever. Order twice as many as you think. I will go back

This was probably the busiest restaurant in Napa - the food is great (loved the Chilequiles). We had to sit at a table where another family was at the other end - not so great... Still, the food was fantastic.
