A word from Zuzda
We offer small plate fair in the style of tapas. However we do not limit ourselves to spanish cuisine. We bill ourselves as progressive altenative dining.

  • "We have eaten at Zuzdas many times when vacationing in the area. The experience is alway good. Nicely varied tapas menu, each item fresh and well prepared, properly attentive staff, and good pacing. The dining room is pretty much one area, and not large, so probably not the best choice for large groups. Excellent choice for couples and small adventurous groups though. We will be back!"

  • "Was in Boone for one night, and am so glad that we ate at Zuzda! I have been to the area many times and have never been here before. I will definitely come back to let my friends and family experience this restaurant! We tried about 9 small plates and absolutely loved each dish! Katie, our server was attentive, helpful, and made our evening flawless."

  • "Went to Zuda for 40th Birthday on 1/24/14.. Hate that they havent been seating anyone upstairs. The downstairs dining room is just so outdated. So when we came in and saw there was room in the bar instead of the dining room we opted to sit in there. The bartender also our waitress was outstanding and very laid back yet attentive.. The food there has always been good. Just update the dining room guys. Thank you again to our bartender...she made it a great night!"

  • "Zuzda's has an excellent atmosphere and a lot of potential but we were very disappointed. Our reservation was at 8:00 pm we did not get any food until 9:20 pm. Terrible service. We were very disheartened with the experience."

  • "We had several plates being that it is a Tapas restaurant. Every plate we had was very good. The only down side was the service not sure if it was the server we had but the service was very slow (even though the restaurant was overly busy)."

  • "We have been to Zuzda's several times. The food is delicious. The bill can add up quickly, though. I think a few years ago more small dishes were offered. We went with another couple for a 6:15 reservation on New Year's Eve and although some of the meals came out in a fairly reasonable time, one person waited one hour for his bowl of jambalaya. He sat there while we ate. I feel that that is excessive, and it might be a good customer relation idea to bring a little dish of something in the meantime...or perhaps a complimentary drink. We will most likely return to Zuzda's, but I hope things run a bit smoother."

  • "Had dinner New Years Eve 2013. The food was pretty good, not great but certainly not bad. The best thing we had was the chicken risotto. The restaurant is a little run down inside, service was ok. Had to wait at least 15 minutes for our first glass of wine, but service was better after that. We and others at two other nearby tables were all cold and forced to wear our jackets while we dined - was probably 65 in the restaurant."

  • "We love this restaurant. Often tapas has a Spanish flair. We really enjoy that Zuzda does not. There are so many delicious tapas to choose from. The almond crusted trout was cooked to perfection. The filet is always a top choice. The brie with caramel sauce is talked about for months to come. We first were here a year ago and talked about it for a year and finally made our way back up to visit. It was just as good as we remembered if not better! Perfect anniversary celebration."

  • "We found Zuzda's a few months ago. We had not eaten tapas before and were excited to try it. We were amazed at the amount of choices on the menu.The food was very good. We have since been there two additional times and brought other people with us. All have enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere. We will definitely go back."
