Always a great night out!

My wife and I go here fairly frequently but I have never written review. We were there 2 weeks ago and had a great meal sitting at the bar. Always nice that the staff knows you, welcomes you and stops by to see how things are. Food is always good and the menu changes seasonally. Great value as... read more

Had a great time with eight girlfriends. Staff and service were excellent. Our waitress helped us with suggestions for a great cocktail on a hot summer night.

The food, wine selection and service were good and a decent selection, no complaints and would go there again. It was fairly typical and what you would expect from the name--no surprises. The seating is all open cafe style and it was incredibly loud from a party of six seated two tables away so there wasn't any of the romantic... More

I went here for a nice dinner with my parents, we had a mix of seafood and steak dishes. All items were cooked perfectly, and the staff was attentive. It is on the expensive side, but it is a very nice restaurant with an attentive staff. I would recommend it for special occasions.

We are frequent diners at ZaZA's and have never been disappointed. Very little street parking available, but there is free municipal parking across the courtyard from ZaZa's.

I know the name of the restaurant says Italian and steakhouse but whenever I go there I order the whitefish. I understand that Italian restaurants have fish but the preparation of the whitefish is one of best fish dishes I have ever had. It is prepared with a butter sauce and capers and is served piping hot with a slight... More

This has been my favorite restaurant for 20 years. Great food, menu, and atmosphere. Wait staff is helpful but also knows when to let you relax. I want to go there now!!!

Four of us really enjoyed our meal at ZaZa's. I ordered an entree not found on the menu and our server, as well as the chef, didn't hesitate one minute to make it for me. That was very much appreciated. Everyone else had equally fantastic food. We will be coming back soon.

Not the Italian I expected, Patsy Cline playing in the background, Mexican waiter and no lasagna or Chicken Alfredo. Food was good but not what we were expecting for an Italian dinning experience. Wine was good.
