service is sometimes slow and disorganized. And it's not for trying, they just can't seem to get their act together.

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!

YUUUMMMMMM. ZAVŌ is a great place with the best food that's worth every damn penny. I had their Crème brûlée, I had their lobster dish (not on the same night tho) – all perfectly made. Thanks to my waiter, Narciso, for suggesting the latter!

I brought my girlfriend here on the date at the recommendation of my friend. Every single thing was incredible! Warm welcoming and getting seated 30 minutes before our reservation made this an amazing evening. The prices were excellent and we enjoyed every dish we ordered especially the salad with pears and that Glazed Chilean Seabass. We will definitely be back!

I've heard a lot about tasty seafood at Zavo restaurant. Despite our party of four stopped by for Sunday dinner without a reservation, we were seated immediately. Narciso and Anna were very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. It is a very cozy place and the food is delicious! I highly recommend ZAVO Grand Plateau. The real taste of best seafood. Joyful experience.

I informed them when I made the reservation that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday, I also reminded them of this when I arrived before my husband. They indicated that they already had this in their notes. The restaurant then did nothing special to celebrate his birthday, I was shocked and disappointed.

Picked a new restaurant for a friend's birthday. Great place. They actually paid attention to my profile on OpenTable and acknowledged that I was vegan and discussed options with me. They even pointed out the vegan wines! Food, (both vegan and non-vegan) was delicious. Service was attentive and the restaurant is airy and light. Can't wait to go back.
