I went to Zazu for the second time - this time taking a friend. We sat outside and the atmosphere was lovely. Our server couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. The food was fabulous and fresh - the bacon wrapped dates excellent - the salad very fresh and great dressing - my friends smokehouse special - loved it. I... More

Trendy restaurant specializing in locally grown foods and local wines. It is a meat heaven and specializes in bacon and other pork products. Everything was excellent. We started with a Sonoma greens salad -- interesting use of pink apples and pistachios in a salad. For our main courses, we had the "Octo Belly." This was pork belly with tender stuffed... More

We chose to eat inside but the restaurant still felt open. There is outside seating as well but it was too cool that night. Friendly service, good food, and good wine list.

Besides everything being totally the most delicious thing you have ever had including the meals for vegetarians! (try the pimento cheese!), they offer fresh baked pies that will be totally ready for you by the end of what is the most taste tantalizing meal you have ever had! Save room! Nothing beats a pie fresh from the oven

Four of us went to lunch at Zazu on a Saturday. The restaurant was not crowded, and the table service was very good. It seemed like the food prep time was a little slow, but the food was so good we really didn't mind. Well worth the 18-22 dollar per entree price. We were also Ok with the automatic 20%... More

When something is really good you know it immediately, but can't easily describe it. In Japan, they say "Umami" and I was hoping to find it at Zazu. Maybe that is an unfair expectation. We were just stopping by for a light dinner before a show at Hop Monk. We sat at the bar and we ordered two beers, the... More

I've been here before and always had a good experience. The hostess was rude. We asked to move to a table with more shade and got attitude. A shaded table opened up and the bus man was put out when we changed tables. We were about to leave but relented when we met our nice waiter. I enjoyed my salad... More

This is a restaurant for people with hearty appetites. My wife and I ordered bacon wrapped dates and the dirty burger--cheese burger with ground bacon--which sounded mouth watering. However, our meals were nothing special as the bacon flavor was barely perceptible, with the cheese and pate adding excessive weight to the pallet. The appetizer was one dimensional and heavy, with... More

The newish service charge is not what we expected. A 20 percent surcharge added on the bill did not enhance the experience. It is our opinion that a tip is a gratuity and is based on the service provided. We will not be going back.
