We went on a Thursday night at 8pm. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is upscale. They accommodated my wife's no black pepper policy with graciousness. No complaints on that delicious food!!! It was artfully plated and tasted even better. The waitress was a...surly type though. Definitely could use more training on being pleasant. She could use a uniform update. She made us wait a super long time for our check too. I attribute it to an off night. We've all been there. Give this place a go.More

We arrived at the le Meridien Houston after a day of travelling. Where else would we eat, we went downstairs to Zutro. The service was very good, making us to be at our easy. What to eat, good question, we took the easy path. We...both ordered the hamburger. It proved to be an good decision, it was excellent. The accompanying fries were however not hot, this made us consume them faster, still the meal was enjoyable. Perhaps we should have returned the for a new batch. The menu is much more than burgers, more good food to enjoy.More

The staff was fun and friendly. Service was pleasant. Food quality was good. Price for breakfast seemed a little high ($68 for 2) but since it was covered by my elite benefit I didn't mind. Would go back again.

We went to Zūtro before the theater. And we were left with desires to return. The food was phenomenal, the service was fantastic. We had the Burnt Ends for appetizer - and WOW - it is served with Bib lettuce, carrots, cucumber and pickled onions...- you MUST make a lettuce wrap to appreciate the flavor profile. Next we had the Fried Oyster Cesar. Yum - delicious. And the Onion and Tomato Salad - this was very flavorful with a variety of tomatoes as well as a hearty portion of Burrata. For Mains we had the Aged Short Rib with a House made Tagliatelle ricotta salata and horseradish. This dish was a flavorful explosion! Tender and full of flavor- I recommend it completely without reservation. We also had the Smoked Brisket - wow. Amazing and delicious. Lentils were perfectly cooked the meat was perfectly tender. The staff was lovely and attentive. The manager recommended that we make the lettuce wraps out of the appetizer and it was spot on - had that not occurred it would have been a salad after the port belly was already devoured. Making the lettuce wraps allowed the flavor profile to come together and we would have missed it completely. Do this - I promise is it worth it - Chef knows what he has created. Check our Zūtro ! Worth it !More

We had a magnificent dinner with friends. Five courses with pairings and everything was fantastic. It was so nice to enjoy a creative meal in a nice setting by the window, and the food was original and out of this world. You should give this...one a try! Chef is excellent.More

My friend and I went to Z on 23 to start our evening or what I would call the beginning of my birthday week. Z on 23 offers incredible views of downtown Houston. It is a fun and happening place. After having some cocktails, we...had dinner in Zutro. The employees were very attentive. Nicole, greeted us and we were treated with VIP service. The food was incredible, we started with the brussel sprouts and shrimp tempura. Joseph had the brisket and I elected to try the ribeye. Both we're excellent! The portions are generous. We finished the night with a decadent chocolate mousse. I highly recommend Zutro.More

Very nice and cozy restaurant nestled in Le Meridien Hotel in downtown Houston. Food and wine are very good, they have a full bar (very important for my hubby). Service is always excellent and that is truly important, you can have a good meal but...if the service is bad there goes your dinner. We dine at Zutro every time we are going to the Houston Symphony, they are very conveniently located and we really like the place.More

We stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed every entree we had. My son had the Belgian waffle, I had 2 egg breakfast, my husband had a poached egg bowl. Every thing was great.

Zutro is located in Le Meridien hotel, easily accessible on the first floor from the street. Free valet parking. The bar has some nice cocktails - Aperol Spritz, anyone! - and the restaurant has a definite southern American focus, but in a good way: gumbo,...redfish, shrimp and grits, etc. served in an upscale way, with a decent selection of wines to choose from. Worth a visit.More
