    Great place to enjoy nice Italian food. Halibut was tasty, pasta fresh with generous portions. Service was great. Only complaint was that it was extremely loud. Hard to have a conversation. However, it was a Friday night. Definitely will go back.

    Been coming to ZaZa's for years. They never disappoint. The food tasted as good as the first time we visited. It's nice to have that kind of consistency. A wonderful place to go for a good meal.

    We love eating at La Za Za in St. Charles. No matter how busy, the staff is welcoming, and the food outstanding. We typically eat at the bar, and love the friendly conversations and good humor. This visit we dined at a table and had fabulous service from Jimmy. The lamb and the halibut were delicious! We like that the menu is updated often and the nightly specials are always terrific.

    Too many strikes to return! The menu feels stale, prices were high even with the understanding that prices everywhere have increased, noise level was excessive, and service was disappointing. I always try to give servers grace during this time of being short-staffed. That being said, the lack of attentiveness from our server definitely downgraded our experience. After our food was served, we were all hoping to order some wine to enjoy with our meal, but the server didn’t show up again until we were mostly finished eating. Even when the server was attending to others in our area, it was impossible to get his attention. There are plenty of other dining options in the area, so we’re scratching ZaZa’s off our list.

    The food has been very good on other occasions but was mediocre this time. Salad was requested with no onions and it came with onions. We were told that the dressing might cover up the taste of onion. Mussels were small and rubbery. Whitefish with caper sauce was excellent.

    The food was as good as usual. If tonight’s “specials” were the same as always, why are they special? This was our second experience with this server bringing our entrees early and while we’re still in the middle of eating our salads. The food runner stands next to the table waiting for us to move our salad plates. It’s obvious this server is only interested in turning the table as fast as possible. Overall dining experience was ruined by a loud obnoxious inconsiderate adult family of six seated next to us. Others around us requested to be moved as soon as they were seated. We were trapped since we were already eating. Management should have intervened by reminding the table of six they’re in a restaurant and not a sports bar. It’s unfortunate a number of the restaurants customers suffered the consequences of this behavior going unchecked.

    We introduced ZZ's to out of town guests who were fabulously impressed with their halibut specials. They said it was among the best fish dinners they've ever had. My wife's and my dinners were also excellent. Our server was attentive and pleasant. As always, a very fine experience.

    The food is always excellent at Za Za’s. The service however on our last several trips has been marginal. The people that support the servers are great but the waitstaff has been indifferent. Interestingly these are long tenured at Za Za’s. I’d like to see more attentive service and more of what you’d expect from an establishment like Za Za’s.
