The service could not have
The service could not have been better, just attentive enough without being overbearing. The food was delicious, led by the burrata appetizer, which just melted in our mouths. The pumpkin ravioli and short ribs were equally fabulous. Nice, welcoming ambiance. We did not sit at the bar but could see that it was lively.

Great food and great service
Great food and great service in a friendly atmosphere. We were in the first group seated for dinner. This was our first time at Zazou and the guests at other tables called out to greet each other, obviously either neighbors and/or regular customers at Zazou. In both cases, always a good sign.

Food superb. Service as well.
Food superb. Service as well. "Floating island" dessert was exceptionally light and lovely. My third time there, never disappointed but tho't this time that the price on the seared ahi was too high for the four squares of fish: $30?

We enjoyed a lovely dinner
We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Zazou - the food was delicious, and the menu offered a variety of familiar favorites with a twist, like my yummy parpadelle with wild boar and portabello mushrooms! It is bustling and is a small restaurant, but it wasn't too noisy, and the only downside was that our waiter could have been more helpful with questions about menu items and more on top of things as far as refilling beverages. That said, we have a wonderful dinner and will be visiting Zazou again.

I can totally see your Zazou
First, I Was able yo reserve seats online which is a plus. Next, the staff was amazing. So much so that my waiter saw us walking on the street two days later and said hello. The food was also good (4stars at least). We ordered the following: beet salad ; stacked beautifully and great flavors, the cheese plate ; tasty cheeses, Mussels with French fries ; disappointing as sauce was too rich and mussels just didn't taste good. Cocktails : Creme brule; highly recommend as its like a booze milkshake , espresso ; well done and not very sweet, salted caramel ; excellent flavor with salt and caramel on the rim.
Lastly the negatives: the only negative is that the drinks and food where overpriced for what you get. Cocktails especially bankrupt us.

ZAPU is always a great dining experience. Food is fantastic and enjoyable. We ordered a cheese and charcuterie board for appetizer, the special (skate wing) and scallops. Always tough to make a decision on what to order because everything is tasty!

This was my first time at this restaurant. I reserved a table for 7. It was very last minute so I surprised at how lucky we were! The food was excellent and service very good - my two nieces are vegan and our waiter went out of his way to find them a great choice. Their roasted vegetable couscous looked beautiful and tasted divine (I begged for a taste!). My Morrocan spiced Salmon was unbelievably good - not spicy at all but perfectly grilled on a bed of scrumptious basil mashed potato. My sister was in love with her seafood spaghetti too. Everyone left there happy. You have to try this place!

Visited from out of town
I was visiting from out of town and my friend recommended this place. The service was fantastic and they take reservations over the internet. The fancy drinks are good, but a little pricey. I ordered the french onion soup and escargot. The soup was good but the escargot were over cooked. The chicken my friend ordered was fantastic! We did have their appetizer made with brie and that was creamy and delicious. I would return to try other items on the list. What I did not like was feeling rushed to pay our dinner bill, as they were closing down the restaurant at 9:30 pm.

Birthday celebration at Zazou
Food, ambiance & especially the service was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable & attentive. And of course, the bread pudding is to die for, so save room for dessert!

Great night out with friends!
Highly recommend for a special night out! Share the wild arugula salad with the crab cakes. Try the 3 cheese and 3 meet platter. The sea bass special was delicious as were the Seared Scallops. The Rigatoni with Lamb Bolognese looked good too. A large wine selection. The waiter recommend Palermo Cab from Orin Swift Cellars a big red, great with dinner.
Don't forget the warm chocolate cake.

Food was great : ) Service was very good as well!
Went there for a bday and experience was great. We had the cheese platter to start and if you like trying different kinds of cheese...you will love their choices! The pasta was really good and the lamb was to die for!

Always happy when we come here!
The food and wine are wonderful, the ambience is lovely, and the service is excellent. We're always happy when we come to Zazou; it's not inexpensive, but the value is very good. Highly recommend.

Zazou was perfect for our party
The restaurant was very busy! Waitress Evette was fabulous! The manager was managing and talking to customers!
Perfect wine list, but 3 of us chose a wonderful Cab by the glass that was not on the menu! Just Ask!
Ordered 3 Appetizers - Everyone's Favorite = Hand Chopped Ahi with all the chopped additions!
6 Dinners - Favorites = Lamb Chops Special with great braised kale and Halibut Special, with regular menu Moroccan Salmon a close third! All yummy!
Since it was a birthday, we brought our own "Susie Cake"! There was a minimal cut charge and they couldn't have been more accommodating! It was a WONDERFUL evening! We all said we want to come back to try other dishes! We all agree that this was the perfect restaurant for our little group of 6.

We went here for our anniversary. Before the end of dinner the owner came by, wished us a happy anniversary and gave us complimentary desserts. A very nice touch!

The food and ambience are outstanding, with a solid wine list. Interesting custom cocktails as well. It is nice to have a cozy bar to wait at if you don't have a reservation.

Zealot for Zazou
We had a wonderful dining experience. Service was top notch. Food cooked to perfection. The filet mignon was so tender, you could almost cut it with a fork. You must order their signature bread pudding. It is a must.
Great bar drinks, especially the fruit infused vodkas.

Somewhat pricy but good food
I enjoy going to Zazou's but it is somewhat pricy. For 3 people with a moderate bottle of wine the bill was $200 before tip (and 2 of us only had pasta for a main course and 1 had only a salad for a starter). For a neighborhood restaurant in Riviera Village, I think that's a bit too high. The food is good but not amazing. However, our Brazilian waiter was terrific. He remembered me from a previous visit 5 months ago and he was very helpful.

I took an out-of-town friend here and he was very impressed with the food. The Thai entree salad with beef was good and the Steak au Poivre was very good as well. The Pièce de Résistance was the chocolate mousse which was absolutely heavenly. We also tried the bread pudding which was just ok - not enough bread. I took it home and added a sprinkling of chocolate chips, a teaspoon of rum, popped it the microwave for a minute and voila, delish.
The only sore spot was that the food took a long time to arrive even though the restaurant was half empty. However, the wait staff was extremely pleasant and knowledgable so that made up for it.
All in all, a very pleasant experience and a great place for a romantic dinner or out with friends.

The food was delicious and very flavorful!!! WE all shared the dishes we ordered in order to have a sampling of all the various choices!!! Antiboise Salad was very good tasting, instead of goat cheese we substituted for feta, deelicious and very crunchy!!! Spaghetti Livornese & the Moules Frites Poulette was devoured to the last mussel!!! "Pièce de résistance" was the dessert!!! Vanilla Brioche Bread Pudding & the Chocolate Monaco just melted in our mouths!!! Again very deelicious!!! Kudos to the chef and the staff working there!!! Very friendly and courteous!!! Thank you for making Rem's bday celebration memorable!!!
