Zazios was outstanding! The food, the service, and the atmosphere was superb! I brought my husband here for a surprise evening and he had a blast! Our server Brad was very helpful in food and drink suggestions! Thanks Brad! Will be returning back to Zazios very soon! 5 stars all the way!

My youngest som and I went early. We arrived way before opening time. They accommodated us. It was gorgeous. All staff were gracious. Even executive Chef greeted us. We were pressed with the whole time.

When I lived in Ann Arbor 40 years ago I was too poor to eat out, so it was a delight to return and find such a good restaurant, chosen on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. Everything (good) about the restaurant must be true, and we had a delicious and thoughtful dinner. Our four dishes (two firsts, two seconds) were interesting without being precious and the wine list was appropriate without being pretentious. Whenever I come back to A2, I'm sure to come again.

Excellent in every way
I get to Kzoo every May for the Medieval Congress. Zazios is the best restaurnat in town. Reasonably priced--especially the drinks. Imaginative food. Good wine list again reasonably priced. Excellent service.

The food was great. They have returned to the scallop appetizer on their menu, actually does melt in your mouth. We have gone often enough that we know the staff reasonably well.
Although our initial seating was poorly delivered, our server Dianne, always delightful, creative, with a great sense of humor, made things right. We would greatly recommend you enlist her aid in selecting your entire courses, her taste suited ours more than well.
Chef came by our table, and we do appreciate that. Ultimately please go and go often, great food and incredible service...

It is our favorite place to dine. The food, people, location, and just everything. Not one complaint. Friendly staff, great food, new ideas with the dishes being served. Thank you for being such a special place.

This was our first time at Zazios. There happened to be a guest chef speaking to a group near us when we dined. His amplified voice was a little distracting for me, because I sat facing the kitchen and because there were no partitions there, could the chef speaking very well.
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I like the way they asked if it was our first time there. They explained what things were. I appreciated their response to "Thank you", which was "My pleasure", rather than the "No problem" I often hear from young people. After our meal, the chef came out and spoke with us. Very nice!
The food was pleasingly presented. Several of the items seemed too salty, but that may be because of the unique olives used.

A Time to Enjoy
I was taken here for my 30th birthday, I was engaged here, and we continue to visit. Need I say more?
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten in the restaurant at an open table & also the chef's table. Our experience has been great every time. Very consistent food quality & service, and convenient to get to.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was outstanding! Great food, great drinks! I would definitely recommend this to a friend, colleague, anyone. Pricey, no doubt, but you certainly get what you pay for and more at Zazio's.

Memorable Anniversary Dinner
My Bride of 40 years and I had a wonderful dinner. The wait staff and Chef were very flexible and accomodating thus making our dinner a very personal experience on this special occasion.. KUDOS to Zazio's! Good Food, Good Time.

It was our first time to Zazios and we went to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress was friendly but didn't hover and we both enjoyed our dinners. When we ordered desert, our waitress let the preparer know it was our anniversary, so they did something special for us to commemorate our day. Expensive, but a nice treat if you're looking for something non-routine.

I had a great time! I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. It was so amazing she said for a second she thought i was going to purpose to her! It was great from the staff down to the food. GREAT RESTAURANT!! WOULD RETURN AND REFER!!!

A great evening of quite, elegant dining! Great food, great service, a fine ambience... a gem in Kalamazoo!
Reserved through Open Table, I was told that no Open Table points could be awarded. This seems to remove a key benefit of Open Table... is it now just another AAA-type restaurant service? Or is there something I missed?

First time here. Farm to table and menu attracted us. Food was awesome. You should definitely try it!

A special birthday
My mom's 90th birthday was perfect from begining to end. The staff was so friendly, the food was great, even a special birthday dessert. We'll be back for her 91st!!!

Exceptional Service and Cuisine
My husband and I took my parents out for a celebration dinner, and we could not have been more impressed with our entire evening. The visits from our waitress were perfectly timed; she never interrupted our conversations, but we never had to wait for a course to appear or a glass to be refilled. We ordered a steak, braised short ribs, a pasta dish off of the regular menu, and the special for the evening, which was a duck filled ravioli. It was truly one of the best meals we have ever eaten in Kalamazoo, and all four of us were completely blown away by the rich flavors of the food, and the experience as a whole. My parents are out of town visitors, and are already planning a return visit to try out a chef's table dinner!

Before my dining experience I'd never heard of Zazios. I went to celebrate my 3rd year anniversary and was shocked with amazement how upscale their facility was. I ordered the 20 oz porterhouse and my date went for the duck. The proportions were huge and neither of us could finish in one sitting. Afterward we made room for dessert which was fabulous. Very good experience, they've definitely solidified a return customer!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My date ordered the special, which was pan seared halibut in wine sauce with spinach gnocchi, summer squash, tomatoes and zucchini. This dish was outstanding! The halibut was perfectly prepared and full of flavor and the gnocchi and vegetable blend complemented the fish. I ordered the scallops. They were tasty and beautifully displayed, but I got an occasional gritty bite, which is par for the course with scallops, I suppose. We also really enjoyed the Chocolate Tasting for dessert.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ate here four years ago and loved the food. So when I got the chance this weekend I ate here two days in a row. And the most awesome thing our waiter gave us a free desert. My friend and I had told him about the last time we were there and our hotel fridge wasn't plugged in and the leftovers went bad and how bummed we were that we couldn't eat it. And when he came back he said desert was on him. Very cool. Of course we requested his area the second day. Ask for Josh's section. He's an amazing waiter!! Can't wait until I'm in town again.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the fact that this restaurant changes its menu with the seasons. We usually only dine out for special occasions, but I can always count on Zazio's to have fresh selections.

Went for our 19th anniversary. Delmonico ribeye was outstanding and love the gnocchi too.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still my favorite
We had our rehearsal dinner at Zazio's six years ago, and as tradition we go every year for our anniversary (we also go several times throughout the res of the year) - and it continues to be my favorite restaurant in town. GREAT food, great service, everything is wonderful. And they are very accommodating to people who can't have gluten, which makes it a winner in my book = ) If you've never been, you need to go. It's fantastic..

sitting next to the kitchen
sitting next to the kitchen was a little noisy...dishes were dropped and I was startled a little, but we love this place and will return often.

Great first impression
It was my first time there at Zazio's, and my girlfriend and I were celebrating our one-year anniversary. Not only was that fact communicated throughout the staff members that worked with and waited on us, but it was also celebrated by a gift of celebratory dessert to-go, even after I had let the waitress know that we would not be staying for dessert ourselves! It was a very endearing experience overall, and one that I hope to have repeated when I surely go again in the future.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Only thing that would have made it better was our table. We were too close to other couples in a partial booth. The food was fantastic and our server was excellent. SHe knew the menu very well and what paired nicely withe main and dessert courses. Enjoyed the experience and will be back soon.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and prices. Celebrated a birthday and it was a great time!

Fresh White Truffles!!
I was lucky enough to be at Zazios when they had just gotten in some fresh white truffles; what a treat for a midwesterner!! They were offered on any dish as a special request, (and price, of course). I had them added to my taleggio ravioli and mushroom entree. The sous chef came to our table, with a bowl of whole truffles, gave us a tutorial on them, and then shaved them on my entree. What a special meal. Erika was a delightful waitress, and deserves extra points!

Worth a Drive
We've dined at Zazios about 5 times. Last year decided this was the spot we will return to for our anniversary dinner each year. The food is always excellent and inventive; but as important, the staff is wonderfully trained. Nothing worse than picking out a special place and even if the food is what you were wishing for...the help is no help. Not so here. P.S. - share the chocolate dessert plate!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, very friendly wait sfaff, very knowledgeable, great service... Very nice
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had not been to Zazios in a while because our last couple of experiences were not that good. But we decided to give it another chance on my wife's birthday. It turned out to be a great time, good server and great food. Definitely the Zazios that we had so enjoyed in the past.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are frequent guests at Zazio's, and it never disappoints. Great menu in the dining room, and the Chef's Table is always enlightening and fun.
