Wonderful restaurant

This is a great restaurant in downtown Kalamazoo. While not formal, it is more upscale then some. Wonderful wait staff, attentive to customers needs without hovering constantly. Food is very good and while on the more expensive side. Very manageable for a couple or a small family. Good wine list, I... read more

We had not been to Zazios for many years and after a recent dinner, I understand why. The food is okay, but not nearly good enough to justify the price. One value example- The Bruschetta appetizer is $8 and has literally one piece of toast...

This is a restaurant located inside the Radisson downtown Kalamazoo. Parking was easy across the street, Rose Street, I believe. A skywalk connects the parking garage to the hotel. Nice area. Was very pleased with the atmosphere and ambience of this restaurant. Definitely makes you feel like it is a special meal, but at the same time it is really... More

Good food, nice wait staff, nice special occasion restaurant. The waitress asked if there was anyone with food allergies which I thought was really nice. Will definitely go back.

Rarely can a restaurant pull off the ultimate of having a world class restaurant within their walls. Certainly not in Kalmazoo of all places. Zazios dined more like an upper scale hotel restaurant. Rib Eye, Trout and all the sides were at best average. Staff is very eager to please but Zazios can't figure out if it wants to be... More

Thanks for taking the time to review Zazios and share your opinion. I am sorry you thought the food was average, we strive to prepare and serve food that is way beyond average here and I am disappointed that you felt your food was short of that. I am glad the staff worked hard to take care of you and... More

For those wanting an authentic and delicious Italian meal, Zazio's offers a lot to love - from the menu itself to the classy, contemporary dining rooms and bar. While the traditional menu has a wide range of dishes from pizza to pasta and more, my favorite is booking a seat at the Chef's Table. With monthly multi-course meals served with... More

We went to Zazio's for a three-course Restaurant Week meal, and it confirmed our view that it is probably the best spot for fine dining in Kalamazoo. The wine list is very strong in Italian wines, and I had an excellent 2010 Franco Serra Barbaresco--$14 for a glass and worth every cent. The braised beef entree came in a rich,... More

Great little Italian rest. Not your normal spag and sauce place. Some very unique choices for the more adventurous diner.

Went to Zazio's for New Years Eve dinner and really enjoyed the multi course dinner. We both enjoyed the choices starting with bruschetta for Amy scallops for me, followed by an amazing gnocchi with mushrooms for me and ravioli for Amy, for the main course I had a really great steak seasoned and prepared perfectly at med-rare, while my bride...
