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...

Recently I planned an anniversary dinner and a night at the Radisson hotel in Kalamazoo for my brother who is in the service and his wife. Both of them were blown away at their experience. My sister-in-law said it was the best service she had ever experienced; their server was so kind, and went to all ends to make sure... More

My boyfriend and I dined here last night for New Year's Eve. My food was delicious! Every course seemed to just impress me more and dessert and a complimentary glass of champage topped off a perfect evening. Our server Kate was attentive and personable. She kept us updated on a small delay between courses, asked us about food allergies which... More

Zazios has some of the best food in town. We always return, but the service continues to feel overdone and patronizing. Not with every sever that I see there, but I seem to get one of the ones who "knows it all" and talk down to clients and is less than gracious. The pastas never fail and the pizza is... More

One of our favorites for birthdays, anniversaries and celebrations. Great food, wine selection and service. If you are looking for a real food experience, try the chef's table.

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.
