Visited Zov's with clients based on a recommendation by one of them. Great choice. The entrees ranged from lamb to veal to various fish and all were very well prepared with fresh, top quality ingredients. The service was good, could have been a little warmer. Would definitely go back when traveling in the area.

Hummus is pureed chickpeas, tahini, and extra virgin olive oil. Zōv's version is creamy, like a smooth peanut butter. The lemon flavor is very light, which is a good thing. The fried chickpeas add a crunchy texture and slightly salty flavor. Rating: 5/5 Baba Ganoush is fire-roasted eggplant, and extra virgin olive oil. The eggplant is fire-roasted to perfection and...

Went for a casual dinner and was pleased with the new bar. Great place to have a drink before dinner and they pour good wines by the glass. Put it on your list you will be happy.

Very nice dining experience. Great selections on the menu. The service was very good but not intrusive. The calamari was delicious, a big hit. A favorite place to go for a relaxing meal!

I love this place. Wonderful food, lovely setting. In fact I love it so much that I stop and their market to bring home goodies for later or buy a gorgeous cake for an at-home party.

So here's this place in Tustin, sited in sort of a glorified strip mall---and it was home to one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. First, the room itself is airy and attractive, thanks to creative use of fabrics and other eye-catching interior treatments. The waitstaff is relaxed, friendly---and very efficient. And the food...

I had the Moroccan Salmon salad for dinner. It was easily the best salad I have ever had! There was a good mix of greens, feta cheese m'jaddarah and balsamic salad dressing. But the star was the perfectly cooked salmon...a large piece that was moist! The service was very attentive. The only improvement could be lighting at the outside tables;... More

We ate at Zov's tonight and I know I had high expectations as several of my friends are die hard Zov's fans. The interior is different with the kind of cement side walk feel to the floor. We started out with a dirty spoon - which never is a good sign. I took the server's advice and got a pomegranate... More
