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.

My wife and I really enjoy eating out here. The food is really good and the chefs table is a must try. The cost is rather expensive, so budgeting dinner on a weekly basis here is not practical but great for special occasions.

The atmosphere at Zazios offers an excellent first impression. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and immediately seated without a reservation at around 7pm on a Friday evening. When we arrived at the table, my wife and I settled into the soft cushions on the chair. By settled, I really mean sunk deep into the nearly bottomless chair! There... More

Had a great dining experience at Zazios. This trendy restaurant has an appealing menu and an extensive drink menu. I had the duck, my husband had the steak. Both meals were prepared to perfection. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu. He suggested a beer flight with dinner and a dessert wine flight after dinner. We were very impressed... More

Great food, great service and wonderful staff. The decor is lovely and staff even remembered us from our last trip in June.

We dined at Zazios tonight for my daughter's birthday and it was the most unbelievable, best dining experience ever. Chef John Korycki created, personalized and made the most amazing 5 course meal for our table of four. Our server, Katie was incredible! She helped pick out an excellent wine choice that suited us perfectly and the entire staff there made... More

If you come to Kalamazoo on a weekend, you must sign up for the Chef's table at Zazio's. The experience is just as flavorful as the meal you help to create. If you are courageous, Chef John Korycki will let you assist in various stages of the multi-course meal. It is a lot of fun, and definitely worth the time,... More

My husband and I went to zazios for our anniversary, and to our surprise, we actually quite enjoyed the visit. The waitstaff were very friendly, attentive without being overbearing. The pricing of the menu is a little on the high side, but the food is delicious! We didn't sit at the chef's table, but could still see much of what... More
