While Zen has the atmosphere and setting of a classier establishment and the food is delectable and quite exotic, the service itself was borderline unacceptable. If it was not for the fact that we were celebrating a birthday and having a generally good time, I might have walked out or had a word or two with the manager, if there... More

I ordered a small salad and a speciality sushi roll that was really good. The menu has various Asian options. Service was good and fast considering we were a large group.

I have been to Zen on several occasions and never had a bad meal. In fact, I have always had an outstanding meal. This is my favorite location for Sushi in the area, very high quality, you write down your order while customizing sushi, so there is no room for error. The staff is VERY helpful and knowledgeable. Every server... More

The seaweed salad was delectable! Unfortunately, the spicy tuna roll was the blandest, simplest, most un-spicy and un-complex I've ever had. The jasmine tea was good. The service was excellent, attentive and quick. My friends loved their meals and they looked divine. One had a Chinse chicken and the other some fancy, special maki. I'd try it, again, but I'd...

We decided to try Zen this week. We were greeted immediately and seated. We are not fans of sushi and ordered the crab wontons, Japanese meatballs, Basil Seafood and the Tempura Maki. The crab wontons were very good. The meatballs were ok but the sauce was wonderful. We had finished the starters and were waiting for our meal when the... More

Stopped in here randomly yesterday for lunch and wasn't disappointed! The outside disguises a vibrant and open venue. The spicy hand roll lunch was excellent as was the vegetarian appetizer sampler. Decent wine/sake selection and pricing. Service is just okay but overall I will definitely return!

The seaweed salad was very good but pricey as... More

We went on Wednesday 11/6/13. I specifically told the waiter I was a vegetarian and pointed out the entree I wanted, I asked if there was any meat. He said no. To my surprise, I bit into a chicken dumpling. Waiter NEVER came to check on us. We had to flag him down to get a knife, I questioned about... More
