CZEN food was great. I didn’t order anything that I wouldn’t recommend. The 5 spice salmon was great, the berry short ribs were fantastic, and the jerk chicken was good (and spicy!). Loved the bok choy and udon noodles. Will be coming back again.

Host checked us in and led us to a nice table. Seated fast, server was nice and attentive. Food came fast drinks way too much liquor to taste, but shrimp and short rib so delicious. Oxtail dumpling on ten stars.

We had a great time here as it was the first time visiting this restaurant. Our food was good and the location was good as well. Hopefully the next time we visit the drinks can be upgraded into better glasses and mixed better. Overall we will be visiting again.

The staff was very accommodating. I loved the outdoor heated pods. I prefer to see servers in some sort of uniform so its clear that they are not just random people moving around the restaurant. Drinks were made well...music was nice... not too loud but enough to add to the vibe. Overall a very good experience. I would definitely go back.

It was absolutely amazing! From the front door to exiting. Celebrating my dear friend Sharon for becoming an RN. We went for brunch, then moved to bar around 4 pm. The food was great I had the Salmon Cakes which was made with real Salmon! My sides were eggs and plantains. Karen had the French Toast her sides were Turkey Bacon, presentation was beautiful. The drinks were on Point! Great Waitresses and Bartenders!

We will come back!

We went to this restaurant for the first time for a couples date night. I was in charge of finding the location and making the reservation. The person with whom I spoke to was very accommodating and didn’t get upset when I asked the same question at least 5 times, throughout 3 different call backs. The same question I asked and got the exact same answer every time was “The $50 fee for the greenhouse on the patio, Will that $50 be credit on our total bill?” Her answer every single time was “yes” I even asked different ways on other calls, “Will the $50 reservation fee for the greenhouse apply towards food and drinks?” Her answer again was “Yes!” “Will the $50 cover the cost of food, drinks etc” her answer again was “Yes” So imagine all our surprise to find out that $50 was literally just to reserve the greenhouse and did not go towards our bill, it was just an added $50 on our bill!! That was very disappointing simply because I asked so many times and told the other guest exactly what she told me! They were looking at me like I was crazy when that bill came out with a whole other $50 charge on top of an approximate $300 bill! But other than that the experience was awesome! I wouldn’t pay $50 again to sit in a heated greenhouse but definitely just won’t go in the winder because the uncovered patio area was freezing!!

After being seated we didn’t know what was going on, it took a waitress 15 mins to great us and had no mask on posture was not welcoming at all. In the middle of ordering we changed waitress again it was a lot. But other than the service, the food was pretty good.

Awful experience on a Saturday night! What's the point of a reservation? These people require a credit card for reservations and threaten to charge you $25 per person if you don't show up. However, I reserved an indoor table for 2 on a Saturday night, which was given away BEFORE I arrived ON TIME for my 8:45 reservation.

The Hostess at the door actually said, "Oh. Your table was supposed to be ***." Then when she saw the look on my face, she thought it would be clever to change her statement to,, "Your outside table will be ready soon." WHAT?!?!? I immediately told her I reserved INDOOR seating. This is the point that she said she would call a manager.

The manager then told me he would get us our table. We had to stand there waiting for 20 minutes by the door. Then they cleared a 4 top, separated it, but never replaced the dividers between the tables. They DID however, give the better 2 top to a couple that arrived AFTER us. We were lucky enough to have to sit on the outside, right next to every patron that walked in and was led to the back. I guess the couple that came in 10 minutes after us knew somebody.

I cannot fault the food here. Even though it is slow to come out, it is usually impeccably prepared and delicious. The music is always on point and jamming hard. However, from the nasty Hostesses at the door to their obvious disregard for reservations, Czen can definitely do better. I'll be finding an alternative to this establishment in the future.

The food was so amazing, I was dancing to each bite. I had the Tempura fish cakes for appetizers. I love anything tempura so I knew this going to be a hit, and it was! The fish was excellent and so was the seasoning. For entree I got the Marley Medley. 10/10! My favorite part was the potatoes. They were so creamy with the curry sauce. I wasn’t that much of fan of my drink however. I got the Lychee pina colada and it was a watery due to the slush. But overall Czen will be seeing me again very very soon!

The food was good, the oxtail dumpling could have had more meat honestly, it felt like just gravy in it. The noise level was absurd, I definitely felt like I was shouting. The drinks were strong, a bit expensive, but everything was mixed with Hennessy so I guess it comes with it. The customer service was good though, the servers were nice. The appetizers and the main dish came out at appropriate times and not all together which gave us time to enjoy the food so I enjoyed it. I would attend again, just a place to chill and get good food out with girls type of thing.
