Zasu is a dream a long time in the making for James Beard Award winning Chef Sue Zemanick. The name Zasu is derived from Zasa, which means “once again” in Slovak, inspired by Sue’s Slovak heritage and childhood memories of family bonding in the kitchen. Located in the New Orleans neighborhood of Mid-City, Zasu’s culinary goal is to explore new ways to inspire traditional favorites by allowing fresh ingredients to speak for themselves. Here, you will find a mix of local and non-native ingredients, creating a unique dining experience that is clean and light, yet rich in experience.

                                Food is incredible, service is joyful and attentive. It is a LOUD restaurant but that’s the only bad thing I can say.

                                Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Everything was perfect. Light but filling. There’s a real master in the kitchen. Loved it. A little pricey, but worth every penny.

                                This was my first visit to Zasu. Food was delicious. Portions were too small for price and service was not attentive. I’m afraid I will not recommend the restaurant to anyone I know unless their bank account is that of most politicians=more money than sense.

                                One of the best meals we’ve had in NOLA. Light, creative, and perfectly prepared - every bite was enjoyable. Started with the tuna appetizer (fresh cilantro, miso broth were perfect with it) a tasty coconut/sweet potato soup, the crunchy green salad in a feta dressing - we shared those bites. I opted for the pirogues and my husband had the halibut. Both were delightful. Spring for dessert here - the coconut buttercream cake was incredible. Cocktails were innovative but traditional enough to satisfy. Service was impeccable. Atmosphere sophisticated and intimate. In other words, go. We’ll be back, for sure.

                                The food was absolutely wonderful but the portions so small and the prices so high that I will probably not go back again. Also a very rowdy table was exceedingly loud.

                                One of the friendliest fine dining experiences we’ve had in a long time. The bartender made a huge effort to prepare a custom cocktail for my wife which included a handmade origami decoration for the glass. Every taste of each of our dishes was outstanding from start to finish. The atmosphere is comfortable, relatively quiet, and welcoming. I cannot recommend Zasu highly enough!

                                Food was good, not great, not fitting the price tag. Overall, found all three of my dishes too salty. Enjoyed the fabulous cocktails more than my food! But everyone was very nice and professional, and the setting is beautiful.

                                One of the best meals I have had in years. We had salmon tartare, veggie crunchy salad, halibut, grouper, coconut butter cream cake. All were delicious! The cocktails were also fabulous. We travel to New Orleans once a year and this is by far one of the better restaurants and we cannot wait to come back.

                                We've been to Zasu quite a few times -- even as recently as last month for our anniversary, but our dinner tonight was over-the-top spectacular. We started with the soup of the day -- a corn, sweet potato, butternut squash masterpiece. Chef needs to bottle that deliciousness for nationwide distribution! Husband had his soup with the fried oyster on top, while mine was vegetarian-friendly. We opted for a second course, instead of dessert (initially), and my husband couldn't stop raving about how amazing the agnolotti tasted (I worried over the chèvre, but he said it wasn't too goaty). My Gem Lettuce salad was -- honest to God -- something I'd eat every single day. The Tahini-Ranch dressing had incredible balance -- I'd put that stuff on everything! Our entrees -- the fish of the day for my husband and wild mushroom pierogis (my go-to entree every time we dine at Zasu) were delicious and rounded out one of the best meals we've ever had. Dreamsicle ice cream for two with a candle to celebrate my birthday was the icing on the cake. Our experienced server was attentive without being overbearing or oversharing, and pacing of the meal was extremely timely and showed an exceptional attention to detail between the wait staff and kitchen.

                                We had another outstanding dining experience. We loved the selection of starters. We considered just ordering all of them for our meal. We settled on the octopus and the pork cheeks. Both were delicious. We had the King Salmon and the Halibut main courses. The salmon was rich and buttery tasting. The richness was balanced by the spaetzle, sauerkraut, and spring peas. The halibut was matched with a light and flavor-packed Asian style broth. Both the salmon and the halibut were outstanding. Service was attentive, knowledgeable, and timely. The wine list includes good diversity, nice selections, and moderate prices.

                                It was horrible. It was our anniversary and we got sat in the middle of the room, two other couples were transferred to a booth around us. The appetizer had 3 baby octopus..only 3, the halibut was over cooked. The rib was great but a tad too salty. Took serious time to even get drinks. Then we went to get the check, which also took forever. It seems the manager is the only that actually cares about the place and the clients. When he got our card for the check, he checked our reservation, and tried smooth over a horrible experience with a passion fruit cleanser. Kudos to him, I expected more from a restaurant associated with the James Beard Award. Looks like everyone really does get the trophy now days.

                                Food was out of this world. The air conditioning was freezing and I rarely get cold. Not a big deal, still had an awesome meal!!

                                My 3rd visit but my date’s first. We agreed was excellent. Attractive, intimate setting, modest sized menu but all dishes delicious. Also portions modest-sized so not stuffed on departure. Excellent service made it a fine experience
