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.

Downright awful service. Waited 50 min for entree. The meat came out cold. The portions are tiny. The waiter did not check on us once. We had to get all our service through a bus boy. I will never go here again

I visited the restaurant with no expectations. When we received the first course, we were so happily surprised. We had the Endive Salad and crab cake (we always share everything) Great portion, nice presentation and it was so flavorful. We couldn't wait for the entrees as this was a great start. We had the chilean sea bass and the short ribs for the entrees. Both were excellent and great portions as well. The last thing was dessert.... we ordered creme brulee and baklava... Wow! We were blown away. Dessert was paired with a Moscato and it was just a perfect ending to a phenomenal meal. I highly recommend this restaurant and I cannot wait to go back for one of their special events on the second floor. Thank you for a great experience!

Tried a new place and were not disappointed. It is expensive even without drinks and wine but the food was perfectly prepared, fresh and very tasty. The Service was professional and attentive and the decor really great.
Only negative was the noise level due to a party table next to our table and the air conditioning was much too cold.

We had such an amazing experience at this restaurant. I came here with my girlfriend. We both enjoyed our night beyond our expectations. The food was on point, delicious and beautifully presented. They were very busy for a weekday and our food took a bit long to come, but honestly it was well worth it. The food here is just unbelievable, they really know what they are doing. We also had an out of this world dessert. The ambiance was so relaxing, the music wasn't blasting as in other restaurants. It was just perfect. The waiters, bartender and all other staff were all very nice and knew how to approach us and make sure we were having a good time. We really had a great time here, would definitely come back again and recommend this place to others.

I love entering this stunningly decorated restaurant for its ambiance, for the culinary experience, and for the hospitality that has been lost in our fast-paced world. It all begins as I sink into a leather chair with a glass of Sancerre, examining the menu, indulging in the cured olives and the artisan bread-filled basket, while saving calories by staying away from aromatic pesto-infused olive oil. Last night, my friend and I ordered from ZAVO's three-course prix fixe menu ($47). We stuck to a simple fare--Greek Salad made with vegetables that tasted like they were picked fresh from the farm, Tuna-tartare, Branzino, Rack of Lamb, Apple Baklava (that my friend could not stop talking about), and fresher than fresh berries (WOW). We were thrilled with our choices for its value, selection, and ample portion size. Just as our evening was coming to an end, two complementary after-dinner drinks appeared at our table. The owner explained, “we want to make your birthday celebration more celebratory!” What a magnificent evening! I can't wait to return, this time with my husband on a Saturday night for a show, dinner, and dancing on the second floor.

From the moment we walked in, we fell in love with the Decor & Ambiance. The host greeted us right away and without hesitation lead the way to our table. We met with the owner who graciously gave my fiancé and I a complementary bottle of champagne. The service was absolutely amazing, and the food was out of this world. I would absolutely recommend this place to all my friends, and am looking forward to coming back soon.

Service was on point.
By far best scallops in New York City.
I was very impressed with the cocktail choices. Octopus was very delicious and very soft . Although, I will advise if you like it a little more Chared just request it. The bartender gave good attention to my preferences. I would say he is a good mixologist not just regular bartender. Definitely try the warm chocolate lava cake. I had the a la carte choices while my companion had the Prix fixe dinner.

Best spot for romantic night out.
