    Presley was fantastic, I will be asking for her as a server every time I go!! Those 500 degree plates are everything, the Caesar salad table service was exceptional with homemade dressing. You can’t get ribeye cap steak anywhere else and it was tender, juicy & mouth watering. Handcrafted cocktail list was phenomenal. I can’t use enough words to describe the experience, ALL I can say is treat yourself don’t cheat yourself. My birthday dinner was unforgettable thanks to Sexy Steak

    Had a wonderful evening at zuzu. Heard about this place from friends who frequent another one of their restaurants (parc) and said we must try it. We drove all the way from Birmingham and let me tell you this place is amazing. Managed properly, the staff is attentive and kind. The restaurant itself made us feel like we were out of state. We dined on the patio and what a beautiful view of the city. For dinner our server, shame on me for forgetting her name, suggested some items. We tried some sushi and the gyoza. For dinner we tried this awesome table side dish. Its a blackstone Ishiyaki. We cooked our own steak. FUN FUN FUN!!! Highly recommend this amazing restaurant.
