Diner Reviews
  • "Located in the beautiful Valley Ho, this nice hotel restaurant is right in keeping with the hipster retro decor of the resort, but it doesn't stand alone on that. The food, morning, noon and night, if fresh, unique and delicious. The service is also top notch. There are comfortable tables, secluded booths, and plenty of patio seating as well. I love the place and would go there even if I weren't staying at the hotel. Top notch."

  • "My friends and I went to Cafe Zuzu for brunch last weekend and it was delicious! Also- the service was top notch! I would definitely recommend doing the build-your-own bloody mary bar and the breakfast quesadilla. My friends loved the complimentary scones. I can't wait to head back to this restaurant next time I'm in town!"

  • "ZuZu is tucked away in the Valley Ho hotel and is a great spot to meet. The food is interesting with innovative vegetable dishes like Spaghetti Squash. Makes the best tuna salad sandwich on yummy bread. Server was very attentive. Can eat in or out depending on the day. Interesting decor, good food, good service."

  • "The phone at the hostess desk was WAY TOO loud. Our waitrees could have come to table more often. The tuna sandwich one ordered was not cook well enough. Everyone else enjoyed their food."

  • "We dined at ZuZu for brunch on Mother's Day. We initially sat on the patio, which was nice (and a bit warm), but there was a table of five men next to us who were being very loud and using colorful language (I had my two young daughters with me), so we requested to be moved inside. Even though the restaurant was very busy, they honored our request right away. The food was a bit slow coming out, but it was very good and the service was very good."

  • "Get dressed up or just go casual. This 50s modern gem inside Hotel Valley Ho is a treat!"

  • "Convenient for me but not the best Old Town Scottsdale has to offer. Also very expensive, considering its negatives. Having been there frequently, this is them - very consistant-no change. I only go there because it's across the street and convenient for me when I get hungry and don't feel like walking far."

  • "Beef stroganoff was taste free and the meat was stringy. The patio was pleasant, and we wanted to like the restaurant, but it was a disappointment."
    Dined on 3/15/2013
  • "Love this place! There are healthy options like kale salad and then some major indulgences like cheesy grits. Great balance and good for any crowd. It's a fun scene and the service is always excellent. I always request a booth or a seat near the windows. There is also an awesome patio."

  • "Lunch on patio, beautiful February weather so nice outside. Standard BLT was very good. Salmon salad was excellent. They also offered a healthy smoothie with fresh berries and protein powder which was tasty too."

  • "ZuZu is great if you want excellent food with novel decor and no pretense. Food and presentation is great, terrific service, great drinks, great music at the right volume. Not for intimate setting - for fun!"

  • "We had a great time dining at ZuZu. We went around 8pm on a Friday night, and there were not many tables dining. However, the bar was hopping!"

  • "Four tables on a Saturday night. Quite sad. Half hearted effort from the kitchen. What has happened to Chuck Wiley?"

  • "Overall we had a great experience!The food was excellent. I was very impressed with the Monday Night Chef's Table menu. Everything was prepared perfectly. The servers were attentive and did a great job. The wine pairings from Laetitia were amazing! We enjoyed all of the wines and every part of the meal. Tabitha from Laetitia Winery was super fun and had great presence. She was a perfect host for the event!"

  • "The NYE special menu sounded like a good thing when booking the reservation; however, my party of four was sat at a glorified bar table right by the kitchen. At $100 per person, I expected more. The food options were alright and the champagne pairings were not so good. The experience felt rushed, the service was just adequate and one of my party memeber's veal was way under-cooked. Once again, I expected more and the ZuZu Cafe under-delivered. The staff seemed slightly unfriendly and that we were at a drive-through. I am not sure I would ever go to the ZuZu Cafe again for NYE. Over-priced for the experience!"

    Dined on 11/22/2012
  • "My boyfriend and I ate here for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. While the food was fine for the price I expect exquisite food. I paid for the meal with some gambling winnings from a few days prior so it was like free money. But, I don't think the value for the food is very good so it's unlikely we would ever return."

  • "I love this restaurant! It's like stepping into the world of "The Jetson's" (if you are old enough to remember them!!) It is just a fun, fun place...plus the best " comfort food" (with a twist)...ever! The staff is efficient and enjoyable. And, their "Ricky Ricardo" martini is delicious! Go and have fun!!!"

  • "Typically in the past this place has been crowded on any given night, but it was a little slower this past Saturday night when we arrived at about 8PM at Cafe ZuZu. I had the Mahi Mahi which tasted a little fishy to me but was okay in general. The service was excellent - very attentive. The outdoor patio area was very nice and relaxing as well."

  • "Nostalgic - food while not great is fairly good - historic property -take a walk into the past !"

  • "A very unique experience. Not a place to go if you are on a diet...many items to sway you the wrong direction! We wouldn't miss it."

  • "Outstanding ambiance, Art deco feel. Very popular spot. Food was very good."
    Dined on 8/17/2012
  • "The mid-century modern decor of Zuzu would be worth the visit on its own. Fortunately, the food lived up to it. The menu is pretty straightforward American fare, excellently prepared with fresh ingredients. Never underestimate the ability to properly poach an egg! Service was prompt and attentive. We will gladly return when we're in the area."
    Dined on 8/12/2012
  • "Chopped salad was fresh, crispy, crunchy, sweet and tasty with a long forgotten Green Goddess dressing that complimented perfectly. Beef Stroganoff prepared in it's classic form and the Filet Mignon was cooked a perfect M/R+ (as ordered) on top of cheesy grits and a fresh spinach and mushrooms sautee'... WOW this was yummy. Service was impeccable, courteous and professional. Really enjoyed our stay at The Valley Ho and our dinner at ZuZu."

  • "We were there for M Day's brunch. We didn't order any apps, went right to the main course. After a while of waiting, they brought out some warm scones that should have probably come out sooner. As we were about to take our first bites into them, our main meals arrived. The up side? We didn't fill up on scones before our meal. I had also mentioned my daughters birthday on the Open Table reservation, which the restaurant acknowledged when they called to confirm the reservation. They then forgot about it when we were there. I shouldn't really complain since I forgot to mention it too. Everything was very good and proportioned just right. The Ho'Js were awesome!! Orange creamsicle in a glass!!"

  • "Breakfast served cold after long wait. Manager gave us breakfast replacement gratis. Service was woefully slow. We've taken Cafe ZuZu off our rotation list of restaurants to visit. Won't go back."

  • "It was hoping and happening. Food was very good... especially the homemade cherry chocolate chip scones. Service was lacking. Still a good place for a nice Breakfast or brunch on a Sunday though!"

  • "Very cool 60/70 atmosphere...California Eggs Benedict was fabulous! Nice Bloody Mary Bar. Restaurant is next to the pool in the Valley Ho Hotel...dress is resort wear to casual. Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon with family. Appeared to be very understaffed, slow service."

  • "We have dined at ZuZu several times. On this and our only occasion, we had an issue with one of our meals. Our waiter and the management took care of the issue immediately and they apologized several times. With this type of service we will dine at ZuZu again."

  • "Quiet, quaint, nostalgic. Food presentation was nice, quality of food, very fresh. Generous portions. The menu had a variety of items, and selections under "small plates" which was just enough for me. A nice place to dine for a quiet evening, with a light air of 60's tunes playing."
