I worked with the wonderful staff at Zazio's (Amber) to plan a wedding rehearsal dinner. The choices of menus for the night were varied and met the needs of all our guest (vegetarian, allergies) without being conspicuous. We used the private dining room, which worked really well for us. It was a very comfortable, modern, chic setting that gave our... More

The hostess greeted us after stating our name for our reservation with "happy birthday." We were seated at a 2 top. There were empty 4 tops. This is important as the great served apologized for the smallness of the table for the food dishes. Service was excellent. She introduced herself as, "I am going to take wonderful care of you."...

This is one of our go to restaurants for date night. Sometimes we bring the kids and sometimes we are able to get away for much deserved "adult time." I don't think I've ever had a bad meal or a bad dining experience. Our servers always make the night memorable and special. We have had McKayla many times and Katie... More

I paid $32 for an entree which was a small piece of fish in a soupy purée. If the accompanying sauce and vegetables were outstanding, I would have overlooked the high price, but the dish was ordinary. Something has happened to Zazios and it feels like they've lost focus.

For our anniversary we booked the Chef's table at Zazios in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo. All in all it was a good experience as they picked a location in Italy and prepared local dishes from that region. Executive Chef John Korycki was amazing as he interacted well with everyone at the table. The cost was a little extreme somewhere around 65... More

This was one of the best meals I've had at a restaurant. There were four of us in my group and we sat at the chef's table. The selection of wines and the variety & quality of foods for each course were both fantastic; the conversation with the chef was very, very congenial; and the dinner went at a nice... More

Cocktails were nothing special & overpriced. We ordered a delmanco steal for $33 and it was highly disappointing - extremely tough & charred. Trout was the same way, tasted burnt and over-cooked.

This was a great choice for girls night out! The personal touch from the chef was definitely the highlight for me. He was delighted to accommodate my many food allergies and I enjoyed an exceptional meal. The atmosphere was perfect for our occasion!

I usually never review restaurants or hotels but I felt like I needed to give credit where credit was due. 3 months ago my husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Zazios because we wanted to try somewhere new to us. The hostess was so sweet, offered to hang up our coats, and wished us a "Happy Anniversary" when we... More
