The bakery side of Zov's is perfect for breakfast or lunch, while the dinner side is an excellent choice for dining in the evening. It is our go-to place for a quick dinner prior to the theater. The service is fast and efficient. When they say they'll get you on the road within an hour, they mean it. And the... More

This is always the place I want to bring friends and family from "away". Zov is a genius and her family runs a tight but relaxed ship. The golden lentil soup is comfort food you didn't know you were missing, and my favorite is always what I'm eating at the time! You simply can't go wrong.

If you are looking for a great atmosphere, good selection of absolutely fresh and tasty food, a warm and friendly service environment, look no more - if you are looking for a great value, move on. Some say you get what you pay for, and I typically agree, but this neighborhood gem might miss the mark when value is part... More

I have eaten lunch many times at Zov's, but only recently went for dinner. We chose a variety of appetizers, and all were excellent! My husband enjoyed a lamb dinner and I ordered a chicken dish--both were delicious.

Zovs Bistro, the perfect place for lunch or dinner, business or family/friends dinning. Comfortable, luxury outdoor patio seating. In the winter sit on the right of the restaurant in a booth or table near the large fireplace. Great service, knowledge bartenders, the best hummus I have ever eaten! Creative fresh California food with middle eastern inspired flavors. Ample free parking.
