Staff was outstanding, breakfast was delicious. We never had to wait for a table. Loved the Ambiance and retro decor. Barstaff was very knowledgeable

We were staying at the Valley Ho and decided to eat at Zuzu for convenience, but we'd go back in a second. We ordered burgers and fries -- the simplest thing on the menu -- but they were just awesome. The fries were crispy and served with a spicy aioli. My burger was cooked to perfection with delicious blend of... More

Great ambiance and setting within this beautiful mid mod hotel, but the food was just average. I had lunch and dinner here during my stay, while on a business trip.

Been here twice. Awesome atmosphere with a time warp to the 60's and 70's with a contemporary flair. The food is delicious. My son had an Orange and Ginger seared Ahi Salad, while I tried a wedge salad and a "small plate" of Pan Seared Gnocchi. Excellent! Great place to also enjoy a beer or a cocktail. Rather expensive but... More

Breakfast, lunch -- oh, so good. Healthy, yummy food, great service, and a really cool place. Enjoy this updated, nostalgic place where Presidents, movie stars and special people, like me, like to come! ha. We're all in it together. You're special too, so don't miss it.

The food was ok. Pricey though. They had a whisky special for $6 and if you order it on the rocks they charge you $1 for the ice. Waiter was not knowledgeable about menu. Food had good taste but watch what time you go due to limited menu at certain times.

I am very sorry for the lack of menu knowledge exhibited by our staff; our restaurant manager has taken steps to correct this. $1 is charged for spirits on the rocks because we pour 2 ounces instead of the standard 1.5 ounces. I apologize that this was not clearly communicated to you. Thank you for your feedback, we'd love another... More

Loved the retro styling of ZuZu but they offer a very limited menu particularly in the evenings. More suited to good cocktails and bar food but not for big dinner. Breakfast served in a.m. but again somewhat limited menu although food was good.

The lemon filled french toast was heavenly. The potatoes and omelets were too. The options given satisfied everyone in our group. We really enjoyed our meal.
