We Love ZaZa's
As our FIRST sit at restaurant experience in over a year, My VACCINATED girlfriends and I celebrated our vaccinations there!!
The only problem was that we forgot that they don't do separate checks. While I understand that this can be a problem, I ended up ordering something less expensive than I would ordinarily have. Still delicious and the atmosphere was delightful.

Best to you and your success in this crazy time

Had the best steak I have ever eaten and one of the best servers I had ever encountered. Took my daughter on a date there from Phoenix and got a hotel nearby just to have dinner at this restaurant though my meetings were nearly an hour away the next day. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Get the Australian ribeye and ask for Jimmy.

This was our FIRST meal after Vaccinations.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.
I had the Veal Medallions meal without butter and with roasted vegetables instead of linguini. It was so delicious. So tender and the sauce was perfect.

My husband had the Salmon meal with roasted tomatoes. He said this is his new favorite way of preparing salmon.

The atmosphere, the servers and the whole experience is great.

I mentioned this reservation was for my birthday but there was no acknowledgement of it by the service staff.

Food was excellent as always.

Have had more attentive waiters.

My husband ordered a filet which was cooked to perfection and I had sea bass which was phenomenal (best I’ve had). Our waiter, Jimmy, was very attentive even though it appeared he was very busy. The noise level was very loud, but it was 7:00 on a Saturday night and we were seated in the bar area. We will definitely return when in St. Charles next.

First time here and we are thrilled with this restaurant. Our waiter Barry was very attentive, made menu suggestions that is something my wife loves, and everything was excellent. Scallop appetizer, pasta, sausage, meatball lamb chops were shared between us and Barry's suggestion for the chefs take on coffee cake was to die for. Can't wait to come back. Absolutely not one complaint.

Went to ZaZa's for a friend's birthday. Service was excellent and the food was very good. We shared an appetizer which was outstanding; mussels, shrimp, calamari in a red sauce with toast points! Can't say enough about it! The entrees were delicious and the dessert was also outstanding. Altogether it was a great experience, great service and a great time.

Double date with my big bro and our fiancé’s. Jimmy was our server and he couldn’t have taken better care of us. Our water glasses were never empty and the bread was always piping hot out of the oven. Our entrees were outstanding across the board and just an overall wonderful experience. Will be returning and requesting Jimmy always.

We had a great time. Everything was excellent. The wait time was minimal maybe 10 minutes. The host was very good at his job. He knows how to make his guests feel welcome and relaxed. The whole experience makes you feel like you are special and not just being shuffled in and out like robots. The whole staff was very professional and knew exactly what to do and when to do it. From the bar tenders, the waiter and the bus boys, they were working hard but didn't make you feel uncomfortable like you were in their way. Very professional. It was impressive. We love going to ZaZa's. A lot of other people must feel the same way because the place was packed and it felt great to have some semblance of normalcy again during these times. We'll be back again.

First of all, the server (Barry) was amazing and made the entire experience so much better than it probably would have been without him haha. I’d go back just to have him as my waiter. On top of that though, the martinis were amazing and the food was great! Overall had a great time and enjoyed some really amazing food and drinks!
