What would you do for a great Key lime tart?

Zov's has long been my go-to place for picking up pastries for dinner parties, birthday celebrations, or just an "I deserve it" sweet treat. I LOVE their key lime tart. It's done right- really key limes, no food coloring, all fresh and perfect. The chocolate box, Milk chocolate Bombe, lemon tart... read more

Zov's has long been my go-to place for picking up pastries for dinner parties, birthday celebrations, or just an "I deserve it" sweet treat. I LOVE their key lime tart. It's done right- really key limes, no food coloring, all fresh and perfect. The chocolate box, Milk chocolate Bombe, lemon tart and cheesecake with berries are also wonderful.

Zov's Bistro has got to be my favorite place for a girl's night out - yummy salads, kebabs, wine. They also have great burgers - my son loves the lamb burger - very unique and delicious. They have an appetizer plate with hummus, taziki, baba ganoush with is so savory and rich, and definitely big enough for an entree. Their... More

Good quality food that taste good. The restaurant is clean, just like the food, the service is fine and the portions are just right. However, their price seems to be just a bit pricey but overall very good and I will probably go back.

The bakery is marvelous. Gorgeous pastries are displayed for your enjoyment in a separate section from the dining area. Breakfast on the porch is lovely. I usually eat the pancakes and take a portion home for seconds. Yum, yum!

I typically go here for lunchtime and have always experienced extremely SLOW service. The food is always good and service is decent but you need to plan for a 2 hour lunch to be safe.

This place has a little bit of everything and it is all good. I happened to be there for a business meeting with a group of about 50 people and they had 5 different choices of meals and they were all good

Had my 12th lunch here at Zov's in Tustin, CA. I am a regular and enjoy the ambiance and menu of this location. The place is split between the Bistro, which is a more formal restaurant and the Bakery, which is more informal. The menu has a wide variety of dishes, both with meat, with fish, and vegetarian, all in... More

Our relatives suggested this restaurant for a rendezvous, and we're so glad they did. The food was first-rate, as was the service and the décor. Emphasis is on Mediterranean food but with an American accent. We'd definitely return next time we're in the neighborhood.

Went there for dinner after work with a few friends. Food was pretty good, service was okay & can be better. Although some people may say this place is pricey, I felt they were actually reasonable.
