Our recent meal was the first one since the restaurant was remodeled and a new chef was hired. The quality of the food has drastically changed. The pasta dishes were soggy and tasteless. The amount of seafood in the pasta dish was a very small portion with mussels the size of a dime. When the waitress was questioned about the... More

Came for Italian. Not sure what I got. Menu is somewhat limited. Food was decent. Atmosphere was contemporary. Service was good. Honestly, not sure what to think. Check the menu online before you go.

I ordered a seafood basket. The food was freezer burnt and tasted terrible. The rest of the meal was average. This was supposed to be a great evening out with great food. Wasn't even close. Didn't eat the meal.

I have visited this restaurant several times and have pleased with the dining experience until this time. I had a reservation and was seated promptly. To me, the menu offerings were not as interesting as in the past. I don't know if it was me or the restaurant , but I did not enjoy dining there. I will go back... More

While staying at the Radisson Plaza I stopped in at Zazio's for dinner. The food was very good. The home-made focaccia with truffle butter was an excellent start to the meal and the pulled pork with fresh cilantro, orange and other seasoning was very nice. My one complaint was the wine list, which is pretty sparse, especially for wine by... More

Zazio's has recently gotten a new menu. The staff is superbly trained so the service is great. The new decor is okay. The food?--not so much. My fish was dead raw in the middle. I was there with two other people and they agreed that their meals were below average. The desserts were great. Since this is a new iteration... More

This place is over priced and smal portions. If you can afford it and you just want something small it's great if you want a real meal and not spend a lot go elsewhere our downtown area (I'm a lifelong native) has dozens of places that are much better. I personally won't return.

We have one been to Zazio's once, which admittedly was a couple of years ago, but back then we had one of the best meals of our lives. The executive chef came out and spoke with us during our meal which made us feel valued and appreciated.My boyfriend ordered the porterhouse, which he said was the best steak he's ever... More

We dined here last night after hearing that both the decor and menu had undergone revision. The atmosphere is now less formal and more bistro-like. In the past, we found the pastas mostly overcooked and the mains underwhelming. Last night, however, we enjoyed the duck pastrami "sharable", bread with truffle butter, seafood etouffee bowl with Israeli couscous, and the seafood... More
