This restaurant is by far the best "Fine Dining" restaurant in Kalamazoo. I can't give it an "Excellent" rating simply because you have to wait so terribly long to order and get your cocktail. I swear they could make several times more $$ if the servers were a bit more efficient from the get-go. Invariably I have to ask if... More

Something is wrong in the kitchen and with the training of staff. Zazio’s used to serve every meal with perfection no matter the size of the party or what you ordered. Our colleague who warned us that Zazio’s has gone downhill is feeling vindicated and the restaurant has likely lost the lot of us as future guests while creating multiplying... More

White table cloth, great Italian wine list, and inspiring menu all leads to a new favorite for special occasions. A little pricey for the area, but never disappointed by the food or service. Not too many places in Kalamazoo to get fresh black truffle shaved in front of your eyes on home made pasta!

From cooking classes to the chef's table, Zazio's offers a fun dining experience, Our party of four had a business dinner which we all enjoyed. The fish was excellent. They also offer gluten free and vegie menus, much appreciated by my colleagues. Service was friendly and professional without being overbearing. It is not inexpensive but worth it. Good beer and...

Very good food but it is time to change the menu. The bar area is a great place to grab a quick meal at a high top table. If you have a desire for a special dining experience book front row seats at the chef's table. You cook and learn right along with the head chef.

Secure a reservation at the chef's table and you will be in for a treat. You will experience a five-course meal with an educational lesson with each course. There is a wine recommended for each course. Every month has a theme, so go back every month for another fantastic meal. My favorite was balsamic vinegar month.

My business partner and I had a great dinner at this upscale Italian restaurant in the swanky Raddison Plaza 5 Star hotel. It was a 75 degree Indian Summer day so we split a bottle of upper peninsula Michigan sparkling wine ($36) which we really enjoyed. They have option of appetizer sized or entre sized plates on menu. We decided... More

Until I ate at Zazio's, ordering scallops at a restaurant was always a disappointment, as they were inevitably overcooked, rubbery and often flavorless. The scallops at Z's are always cooked to perfection, and prepared with local, seasonal ingredients. We love to eat at the bar, where we've never had anything but outstanding and knowledgeable service, including both wine and food... More

We came here for to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and it was fabulous. The waiter was extremely helpful when selecting from their huge wine list and deciding between appetizers. I would definitely return to this restaurant and do the chef's experience if given the chance!

Was here with friends on blustery Friday night for cocktails and chow. Both were good - I had the whitefish - service great and prices fair. I'm told that the $5 martinis are the 'deal of life'. So there's that.
