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

Zov is a first class chef and a class act. Her Tustin location is her flagship restaurant. Weather you opt for the bakery/cafe side or the restaurant proper, you'll get well prepared food with a Mediterranean flair. Food is tasty without being overly rich and caloric. Save room for a sweet treat. The lemon tarts are wonderful as is just... More

Zov's is amazing. Known for their desserts, which are DEFINITELY worth trying a bunch of, but their pastas are awesome and their lamb sandwich is amazing. I have eaten both at the restaurant and the cafe. The cafe is a great way to be able to enjoy the outdoors and quality of food without quite the high price tag. I... More

I've been going to Zov's maybe 5 times a year since they opened... in recent years mostly for brunch, which is one of the best in the OC. What I like is that Zov's serves dishes you won't find anywhere else right along with the breakfast classics. AND there is rarely a wait! The only drawback is that their coffee... More

Zov's is reliable and the food is tasty. I usually select a salad and they never disappoint. On my most recent visit, I had the daily salad special, a romaine salad with a halibut fillet. I was pleased. This location has a nice outdoor covered patio that does a huge lunch business. Inside is quieter.

Love this place for brunch. Huge portions, fast service. Outdoor patio. They also have papers to read. Plenty of parking. Check out the bakery - the lemon tarts are just incredible. only negative - bathrooms are always busy and it's awkward waiting in line.

Good Mediterranean food, a must have is the calamari appetizer. It's not deep fried but sauteed with garlic, tomato, cream and served with bruschetta--delicious! There are two sides to the restaurant; the more expensive formal restaurant and the bakery/cafe. My only complaint is that the menu never seems to change. They do have specials, but they are always the same... More
