Diner Reviews
  • "I was in town visiting my elderly mother and took her out for a special dinner. They were very accommodating -- she is on a gluten free diet, and provided wonderful service. The food was excellent. It's wonderful to have such a great restaurant in Kalamazoo. I highly recommend."

  • "Had a large party [10 plus baby], and our waitress was very attentive and accommodating. Half the table ordered the short ribs, which were delicious and very generously portioned. Someone ordered the mixed grill. The scallops and trout were very well-prepared, but the shrimp was very noticeably not fresh. It was mushy, and had a spoiled aftertaste. I'm surprised shrimp like that was ever served. Otherwise, everything else was delicious. Halibut special should be a permanent menu item. Will definitely be returning, but more than likely not ordering the mixed grill."

  • "This is definitely a gem in Kalamazoo. The food is excellent and the atmosphere cosy. No blaring music no noise of other customers conversations, even though the restaurant was full. The chef was giving a demonstration to a group in that corner and it was fun to watch what he was making although vicariously. A very nice place for that special occasion."

  • "This is a restaurant worth going out of your way for. Will go back when in Kalamazoo. Didn't know about it until it was too late, but the chef's table looks like a great idea, although a little pricey."

  • "Traveling to large cities like Chicago used to be the standard to get great cuisine. Now we have this local gem and I couldn't be happier! Great sharing orders of smaller sizes eliminates the need to pick just one!"

  • "Food was very good and the service was exceptional."

  • "Who knew in Kalamazoo they have gluten free dining too... Fit for a foodie with knowledge and service to satisfy the most paranoid celiac (gluten free) patron. You are presented with a full - laminated including pricing - gluten free menu so you feel like a real person and asked if you would like crudité as a replacement for bread this is for starters. The menu includes a full range of entrees and the pasta dishes are served with your choice or rice or corn pasta - I had the traditional bolognaise sauce with rice pasta and it was excellent. Fresh and local ingredients where possible are used. Beet salad was excellent as well and dressed to perfection. To the chef, managers and staff - thank you!"

  • "Fun place to go for an excellent meal, with great service - we even had the chef serve us our meals this time! Perfect venue for groups and always an enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Our food was excellent! There were a few things that made our experience not so great. One of the water glasses had lipstick marks around the rim. We waited 5 minutes after being seated to be greeted. We asked for our bills to be split, which the server got wrong. We had our parking tickets validated, but when we left the parking ramp we each had to pay $14.25 each."

  • "I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his 23rd birthday as his two favorite foods in the world are pasta and seafood. He was definitely no disappointed by his options! Everything on the menu sounded amazing. Every singly employee at Zazios was kind, helpful, and made the experience of dining at this establishment that much better. They were friendly and personable and were willing and able to give information about anything we asked as well as knew the menu in and out. The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this restaurant and intend to. Not only that but my boyfriend and I plan on coming back and dining again ourselves."

  • "We went to Zazios recently for our Valentines dinner while spending the weekend in Kalamzoo. They sat us in this back area with only like 4 other tables and it was insanely quiet. At first my fiance and I were afraid to talk because it felt like we were on display for the other two couples in this otherwise empty room. Eventually, as a few more tables filled up the room softened out and it was fine, but it was strange at first. Especially because we walked right by a handful of open 2-person tables that were out in the more vibrant, main restaurant area. Probably would have prefered to be seated out there if I had it to do over again."

  • "Food was OK but expected better. We had heard great things about this restaurant but the flavors of the dish left but a bit underwhelmed. Beer and wine list was exceptional."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Hmm, it seems to have all the right stuff. Good modern ambience, competent wait staff, open kitchen. The woman in the chair at the next door table was literally one foot away. OK, impossible to have a private conversation. The bread was served with paste which only a vegetarian could love. The muhroom soup was very good. The first entree was pasta bolognese which had nice pasta and creamy sauce like stroganoff. The second entree of quail was perplexing in that it came on 2 skewers, no mention of this on the menu. The tiny bones in the quail meat I guess is normal but unexpected to us. We were surprised to see when the bill came that mixed drinks were $8 each. Overall we felt the value for the money came up short."

  • "Absolutely excellent food. Normally I like the table near the window but last night was a bit chilly there. A wonderful night in spite though."

  • "We enjoy dinner at Zazios and so picked it for our restaurant week experience in downtown Kalamazoo. The pear and pecorino brûlée and eggplant tortelli were delicately delicious and the panna cotta was the perfect finish. Bravo Zazios!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The pear and pecorino appetizer was an unexpected delight with caramelized pecorino. I have never before had caramelized cheese so it was a tasty surprise. There was also a surprise scoop of cinnamon gelato on the tiramisu which perfectly complemented the sweetness of the traditional dessert. Not sure if it was an error as usually they use a coffee gelato but I enjoyed the "red hots" cinnamon flavor in combo with the mascarpone."

  • "Zazios is my new favorite restaurant! Our waitress (Sarah) was without a doubt the best waitress I've ever had in a restaurant. Went there for my girlfriend's birthday and it was perfect. As far as the food goes, I ordered the Delmonico Ribeye, it was good, but not out of this world good. I think it should have been better for the price. My girlfriend however, ordered the Roasted Chicken. Absolutely amazing. the best chicken I've ever had. We both want to go back for the service, atmosphere, and that chicken! If you're thinking about going here, remember it's a little on the costly side, but makes a perfect special occasion restaurant. Try Zazios!"

  • "We had an exceptional dining experience at Zazios. The meal, service and atmosphere all met our expectations and more. Our server, Hannah, could not have been more sweet and made our night even more special."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Good ambience, great service, and good food. Our meal were top notch; the seafood spaghetti was very good and the cheese ravioli with mushroom/truffle cream sauce was magnificent. The desserts were ok. Paired wine list was on par; perfect for the dish it was with."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Zazios used to be a favorite for an excellent dinner experience. My last 3 visits have shown a significant drop in attention to quality. On this evening, the salad was over dressed. After sending it back, the replacement was swimming in a pool of balsamic and the greens were wilted. The salad was again returned and taken off the bill. Our server checked on our table very infrequently - seeming to choose serving the large party directly behind us. The steak I ordered was not well prepared. I understand, this isn't a specialty for this restaurant. But I was pretty discouraged by the preceding that I just wanted to finish and leave. However, my wife enjoyed all of her meal. In future, I will stick to specialties - if I return at all."

    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Zazio's s beautiful and sophisticated both in design and in food presentation and options. When it first opened, I was afraid ti wouldn't last. Instead, it has pulled up some other establishments in town from where they were to a higher level of service and food--some have even remodeled. Still, Zazio's is my favorite place for a great meal in contemporary surroundings."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "The evening started out bad the host(male) could not explain why he could not give us a round table to seat our party of 6 at The waitress was very polite and accommodating. The appetizers were excellent the salads were very delightful. But then it came the entree. All of the food came out cold. The steaks were overdone my steak had a string in it. All in all we will not do dinner or any meal at Zazios"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "It has been awhile since my wife and I dined at Zazios, and we wonder why we waited so long to return. The wine list was fabulous as were our meals. A special treat was a Chef John Korycki, who we have not seen for years."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "You have a beautiful restaurant that's very convenient for hotel guests. Our dinners were not outstanding. The duck was very salty, the prime rib x2 was not excellent, and everyone was not impressed with the few pieces of Romaine to make a Cesar salad. The prices were high, which we expected, but everyone did not feel like anyone had a dinner that was excellent. We went to the Black Swan the next night, and were very impressed."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Our sides were tepid at best, one steak was barely warm and over cooked..the pasta dish was between tepid and warm, no fresh grated cheese was offered as well as no fresh pepper.. We were celebrating a birthday and found it to be a disappointing evening. On the good side the wine was great and the service good."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/19/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "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."

  • "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."
