I had only been here for lunch, and finally had dinner here. Yum. My brother had pistachio crusted sea bass (not the fake Chilean sea bass). He eats all over the world and loved it. U had the chicken stuffed with sun dried tomatoes and currents. I practically licked my plate. I went to the bakery and bought some desserts... More

This place is tucked around the back, behind their larger restaurant. They have a nice outside patio which makes for a great lunch spot. They have a lot of choices along with seasonal specials. My wife loves their salads and I typically try their steak special. Its always cooked and seasoned to perfection. Also, make sure you try their hummus.... More

I've lived near Zov's for 20 yrs and have only just eaten there. It was delicious. The flatbread was a great appetizer as was the calamari! I had the penne pasta with in house made sausage - it was delicious!!! The salmon salad was also good. Great place to eat!!

There was nothing "wrong" with our lunch at Zov's, there just wasn't anything that was better than what we can get at Coco's for half the price. I hate saying that because I really wanted to like it. The service was great, the food was just mediocre.

We have been eating at this location for many years and it used to be one of our favorite restaurants. We took friends out to dinner at Zov's Bakery and were extremely disappointed with our meal. My husband and I order two entrees that we have ordered many times in the past. We ordered the chicken kebob and the hamburger.... More

Zov's was one of our favorite restaurants for 25 years. Since moving to Arizona, we have not found a similar restaurant. Zov's was always consistently wonderful !

Went to the restaurant and initially it was quite warm inside - wasn't sure I wanted to sweat for my higher end meal. The heat dissipated and we ordered our dinner, which was about $30-$40 a person with salad and entrée. There were four of us and the waitress got both the salad and entrée meal incorrect for the same... More

Really good food, but feel like paying $18 for a lunch salad may be a little high. That being said, I find myself coming here for great baked goods and pastries regularly. Great cappuccino too!

I went for appetizers & cocktails with friends. We all were highly impressed with the small salads & especially the different way they serve food there. We ordered Calamari - this is not your typical dish that is fried & served with Marinara sauce. Instead they're served in a creamy garlic sauce with croutons. Outstanding!

Zov's is a Tustin fixture and has had a great reputation as a place to go for a special meal. I've been there three times now with one in the cafe and two in the restaurant. The cafe was outstanding . Excellent pastries and coffee. The restaurant i found unexceptional in every way. While the surroundings were pleasant, the food... More
