Service was great! Food was amazing! It is always consistant
Everything was delicious and the service was great. Live music on Friday night was a pleasant surprise.
The show was phenomenal! I would definitely recommend it for a date night or special occasion. The service was a little slow and the food a little heavy although very delicious.
Beautiful place with good food. We ordered Octopus, Crab Cake, Filet Mignon and Sea Bass. Everything is delicious! Highly recommend this place!
Great place was amazing food was excellent
This is my favorite lunch place (happy hour too). The service is always excellent, very attentive. The food is flavorful, made to perfection and you must leave room for the delicious desserts! I love the salmon, but I have also had the short ribs on another occasion.
Everyone I bring there is always impressed with the food and the ambiance, which is elegant.
My boyfriend and I went to Zavo for restaurant week and our meal was okay. Our waiter was lovely and quickly brought out our delicious drinks. The appetizers came out rather quickly as well; the plates were very hot, but the food itself was cool as if they had been sitting out under the warmer for some time. The main meals were similar in temperature, the short rib was good, but the branzino was filled with bones. Our dessert was good, a nice end the the meal. Overall, service was great, the restaurant was beautiful, but the food left a lot to be desired. With so many amazing restaurants for restaurant week I would look to spend your night elsewhere.
We came here on a Friday night And did the restaurant week menu and the food was absolutely delicious. We got char grilled octopus, jumbo crab cake, braised short ribs, mixed berry trifle, and the crepe brûlée. The place was really pretty with live music with A pianist and a singer.
I liked the place, food not the best but everything else was good
My friends and I chose this restaurant for Restaurant Week. We loved it! The food was delicious, the drinks were strong and our waiter was courteous and attentive. We also loved the look and feel of the restaurant. Not being pressured to hurry up, eat, and leave was a plus! Zavo is definitely on our list for a return visit.
This was my first time at Zavo and all I can say is Wow. The decor is beautiful, the service was wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious. Also, the portions were tremendous. Great place.
Went for restaurant week. The grilled octupus appetizer was delicious. So was the crab cake. I was slightly underwhelmed by the rib dish. I was expecting more but it was just ok and the meat was very fatty.
Everything was perfect food service and ambiance. The only negative was they didn’t acknowledge the birthday occasion not even a candle with the dessert
But everything was so nice I didn’t realize it until we arrived at home.
Went for first time during restaurant week. Food was OK. Needs some improvements. Do not need too much but it is not quite alright. Will give another chance. Service was prompt and courteous.
Solidly mediocre, won't be back. Food was fine but just not noteworthy. Ordered a main that was listed and it was really a side. And for a party of five in a tiny font they added a 20% tip, almost missed it and would have tipped 40% for okay service. Pretty room, but far too many places to go to think about returning here.
The ambience, food, atmosphere and service were all wonderful.
I enjoyed it very much
Everything was fine till it was time to order desert. We ordered cheesecake and latte. Cheesecake arrived and latter never did, so we waited and wanted till it was already to the point of obnoxious, so I had to get up and look for a waiter to bring us the check. When he finally showed up he brought latte whichI said nobody is interested anymore since it’s been over half an hour after cheesecake arrived, so instead of apologizing he said I took latter off the bill... WOW! Obviously, we are not coming back any time soon.
Rack of lamb was exceptional. Service was extraordinary. A wonderful experience
After a very busy week in non stop meetings, myself and two colleagues had a wonderful dinner at Zavo. We chose Zavo based on proximity to our hotels and a collective love of Mediterranean cuisine. Atmosphere is very clubby and was decked out for the holidays. The menu has a good deal options and great seafood selection. We had a ceviche as a starter that was a little unique as it cooked but very tasty with mussels, calamari and scallops with olives and tomatoes. Respectively we ordered Sea Bass, (mine) jumbo Prawns in a yummy butter caper sauce and grilled Lamb chops. Everyone including my colleagues who are very picky eaters greatly enjoyed their meal. No dessert but they had a nice selection. The live band in the lounge area made the dinner very festive but at times it was difficult to hear each other. Service was a little slow at times as it was very busy but our server made sure we had everything we needed and we were not in a rush. Always a nice touch that the manager came over to ask if we were enjoying ourselves.
No one at hostess desk and it wasn’t at all busy! (this should have been a red flag!!)
We waited and waited and finally asked the barmaid to seat us.
After getting menus and water from busboy, it took 10 minutes for waiter to come and take drink order. Again, place was not busy, only 3 other tables at 7:30 should have told us something.
Food was boring, ok, nothing stood out except poor service. Took forever to find waiter for check - and then he decided to try and be friendly. It was far too late to influence the tip by that point.
It’s okay. Not wow
Very pleasant staff. Good food. Nice space.
This restaurant is always good, never disappoints. Had lunch there a few times. Salmon done just right, moist, tasty. Desserts are to die for. Staff is very attentive. Always feels relaxing in this bustling neighborhood. A good respite.
Great value lunch offer. Service was excellent. Food was good and plentiful. Perfectly located for a Bloomingdales trip afterwards.
Everything about the lunch was Great. The service was superb. The prawn appetizer was tasty. Don;t know what the flavors were, but they sure resonated on the tongue. My main course was the salmon which was cooked to perfection. I like it medium to medium well, but not dried out. The chocolate mousse was so delicious.
Delicious food. Really well prepared and presented. We had charred octopus. Wow. Also the sea bass was a beautiful and a great mix of subtle flavors.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. A yet undiscovered treasure!!
When the staff heard it was a birthday celebration they brought out a fake cake. It was great!
Was a great experience! I went for Restaurant Week on a quiet Wednesday night after a very rainy day. They were friendly and seated me quickly.
Decor was nice, it’s a big spacious venue with 2 rooms and a bar off to the side along one wall. There was a candle and a vase of red roses on each table.
Service was good. Staff was friendly, and they were even good about refilling my water (& with my preferred “no ice” at that!).
Food was delicious! Their plating was great, and the taste even better! I’m not big on crab cakes, and so I can’t comment on that, but the short rib and puréed potatoes were delicious, as was the crème brûlée dessert with blackberries and mint.
Would definitely recommend and return!
Great place for a romantic lunch. I was with a friend but it was good too. Great value for the lunch menu, excellent food and service. I will be back soon.
Really enjoy dinner at this restaurant. Will highly recommend this place.
Awesome birthday celebration, fantastic service, posh atmosphere, excellent food.
It was fine. However there was such a delay in getting the check and processing payment because the system was down. It took too long.
Excelente servicio y la calidad de la comida exquisita
Great place for lunch. The food is very good and the service is great.
Empty restaurant but the food is good and the service as well. No atmosphere but it’s quite modern and big
Great experience. Food was amazing and service was on point! The ambiance could’ve used some help but it was a Monday night so I’ll definitely be back.
Authentic Greek food. Great service and wonderful overall experience. Would recommend and go back in a heartbeat!
Very nice ambience very good food excellent there detainment fun fun fun
Our favorite restaurant for lunch in N.Y. We had the prix fixe meal—everything was top notch. Lovely venue, attentive service and delicious food.
