    As usual, everything was excellent, except for the cost. Value is defined as experience/cost. Yes, everything is more costly. (elections have consequences) As time goes on hopefully costs will come down.

    Great atmosphere inside and out but if inside be ready to shout as it can get loud with the bar right next to the tables and the tables snug. Great food and service but they push the VERY expensive ‘specials’ and wine without stating the price so beware!

    Won’t go again. Servers were attentive but pushy; always in a rush is the feeling I walked away with. Meal value was average to low. They ran out of specials even though we were no where near dining late. Outside was a great sit although a little cramped. Inside was very noisy given the number of patrons inside.

    Our daughter had never been to Zaza’s. We love it there. However, last night was pretty much a disaster. 1. We were seated in the bar. 2. It was extremely loud - especially one man and his group sitting at the bar. Clearly, he / they were overserved. 3. We asked for Valerie when making our reservation. We did not get her. The server we got was good, but nothing special. It would appear to the casual observer that there might have been a staffing issue last night. 4. The food was great. 5. I will not accept a table in the bar from now on. My decibel reading is shown below. I am truly sorry, but I am giving the truth, hoping things improve the next time we go

    La ZaZa Trattoria - St. CharlesResponded on July 19, 2022Thank you for your review. We understand noise levels can be loud on Saturday nights especially in the bar. We do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable. This is not something we can always control and if asked to move I am sure we would have been happy to relocate your table. Many requests are done through Opentable but unfortunately we cannot always fulfill these, especially server requests. We try our very best but it is not always guaranteed. We are sorry for this experience.

    Amazing food, atmosphere, and service! Everything was wonderful. Only tiny thing is that the table wasn’t ready when we got there/reservation time and the bar was so busy we weren’t noticed to get a drink. Delicious food made up for it! Can’t believe we lived here for 10 years and haven’t been! Will be going back!

    Very average food for an above average price. Also really shouldn’t be called an Italian steakhouse when they have only one prime rib on the menu

    La ZaZa Trattoria - St. CharlesResponded on July 5, 2022Hi Ed, Our name is actually La ZaZa Trattoria. So normally a "trattoria" does not have steaks or chops apart of it's menu. This is why we still market that we are an Italian steakhouse because we do offer pork chops, veal, filet and a Wagyu ribeye each night. We are sorry this may have been confusing but we do not offer prime rib either.
