“California cuisine meets tapas and it's a great match”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Unique flavors in perfectly prepared small plates. Very very tasty entrees. Not exactly like traditional Spanish tapas that you might get in Madrid or Barcelona, but with a fresh Napa style, California twist. Really good!

“Everyone recommended Zuzu to us”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

And perhaps we just ordered the wrong things but we felt it average at best. We had the queso which reminded me of the mozzarella sticks they feed kids at school lunch. The salted cod spread, flavorless and the stuffed pepper, again, no flavor. The white anchovies were delicious though.

“Not Exactly Tapas, but Great Small Plates”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The way we approached our meal was to continue to order small plates until we were full. The flavors and quality were excellent. Our favorite was the lamb, followed by the flat iron steam, gambas and paella. Interesting, reasonably priced wine list. We would go back here again.

“Tapas! ”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

We came here early on a Monday night and didn't have a wait- yay! We ordered sangria (very good!) and four plates for the 2 of us, which was the perfect amount. Our favorite was the shrimp! The service was not very helpful or warm, but it was quite busy and loud while we were there.

“Tasty tapas, fun place”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This was our second visit. It was as good as before. All the dishes were very tasty. The 5 of us had 16 different dishes. Wine list is eclectic. Corkage is reasonable and is usually waived if you buy another bottle. It is popular so it is crowded and can be difficult to get a seat. Fortunately we knew someone who knew someone. Not too difficult if wine tasting around town.
