I had a PULSD voucher and from the moment I stepped into the establishment, I was met with confusion about my purchase from Pulsd. The woman who greeted me did not handle the situation with any aspect of privacy. She proceeded to ask me embarrassing questions in the middle of the dining room instead of pulling me aside. I also was an awkward witness to what seemed to be a business meeting in a very close table... there were many problems with my experience...this restaurant needs a consultant with FOH and BOH experience

It was my first time at Zavo, and I enjoyed it very much. The food is hot and fresh, and, most importantly, very delicious. There’s no excessive waiting – everything is served in time. And the atmosphere is just fantastic. I’ll surely come back there soon!

Zavo is not an ordinary restaurant. It actually has it’s own vibe, it’s own atmosphere. The food there is always fresh and delicious, and the prices are very moderate and affordable. The service is fantastic. Narciso did very well as a waiter for us. I’ll be back soon!

Fantastic restaurant. The service there is just outstanding – the waiters are very attentive. When it comes to food, it’s just as great. I tried lobster dish – it was very delicious, but most importantly it was very fresh. I like that you don’t have to wait for your food for almost an hour there, they serve everything pretty quickly. The atmosphere is charming, too. I highly recommend you pay a visit there.

They offer such a yummy brunch. I and my husband had a great time and both really enjoyed the crab cakes eggs benedict. It’s so nice to get away and spend a morning enjoying the finer things in life, and Zavo definitely provided just the escape we were looking for.

Nice ambiance, elegant, comfortable seating, accommodating for conversation even when the place filled up. Large bar area was pretty quiet all evening. Food and service were fine, not exceptional but certainly efficient, food was all well prepared and generous portions, nicely presented on the plate. We had calamari appetizer, sea bass and lamb chops entrees, and all were good. So a nice menu with options for all types. They served limoncello as a complimentary dessert drink. so overall, nice, pleasant, but not exceptional.

Great surprise, elegant setting, minimalist entry, large restaurant on two floors. Private dining as well. Very creative and tasty dishes with superb salads, entries (fish, seafood, meat dishes), prepared perfectly. Good wines to match. Responsive and friendly staff. Mediterranean Sea Bass & crab cakes were delicious.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

Food and service always excellent. The holiday price fixed was disappointing in that portions were smaller than usual. The main problem here is that they remove dishes while others are still eating. Restaurants of high caliber remove all dishes at the same time.

The lobster thermidor at Zavo is among the best seafood dishes in the city. It’s as savory as you could hope for and makes any occasion memorable. If you want a great lobster dish then you really owe it to yourself to try it out.

It was my second time at this place and I’m impressed once again! I just really regret now that I didn’t visit it for a while and definitely will be back now very soon! We’re decided to have the real holiday and just relax and have a nice dinner out, then I was searching for a while for the place to go and here we go! Restaurant I was before and was really satisfied with everything is open and offer special Thanksgiving Prix Fixe menu! Booked! Menu was just perfect! Pumpkin soup to die for like an appetizer and then main course! Of course Turkey (btw it was organic and local)! OMG!!! From the first piece and until our plates was like just from dishwasher!!! Honestly, THE BEST turkey I ever had! So juicy and tasteful! Sauces, gravy, stuffing... all were just perfect! We finished with pecan apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake to share and after found ourselves in real food coma))) need I to mention that atmosphere and service was great! We’re so thankful to all team of that amazing gem on UES for one of the best dining experience in our life. Thank you and we will be back soon!

My husband and I went here for a date night and we were disappointed. The ambiance is bizarre and there was a parade of scantly clad women posing outside the window to go to the club upstairs. The food was very mediocre. We were served the wrong soup. Would not recommend.

I wish we had more places like Zavo: authentic, delicious, and not a freaking chain!! Anna, the hostess, she treats you with utmost respect and care as soon as you walk through the door, that's a rare thing these days. Plus, their lobster dish is to die for!
