The ravioli was absolutely incredible. It was rich and flavorful. Portions are generous. Had no room for dessert but definitely coming back.

Terrific! Dinner was well priced, delicious, and we felt proud to support a restaurant giving their employees a real living wage, PTO, and 401k. I mean wow!

Zazie's never disappoints. The only strange thing this time was having an edgy waiter. I've never experienced that here. All in all the entire staff is wonderful. The food is fantastic, from trout to steak to a pork chop. The small house salad was pretty bland though. Brunch is amazing too. Eggs Monaco are over the top.

Zazie's is my favorite restaurant. Delicious food, friendly service, a great atmosphere. They have a European model of charging the real cost and paying their employees a living wage, so they don't expect an extra tip. Love this place.

Prie fix is a rip-off. Presentation of dishes was poor and food was poorly spiced - rather bland. Prices were steep for what was served.
On the other hand, the service was good. We had a very friendly and efficient waiter.

First time at Zazie. Cozy interior plus heated patio dining. Delicious puréed tomato eggplant soup . Sliced duck breast over garlic sautéed spinach and mashed yam was perfectly prepared. My friends enjoyed a coq au vin and beef bourgeion.
Splurged on creme brûlée and a yummy bread pudding topped with creme brûlée. I had heard about it for brunch but dinner was great. Prices include tip!

Business meeting with a glass of wine and cheese plate. The wait staff was attentive and not intrusive. Asked initially if we needed to get to another event so she could appropriately address any time constraints.

Didn't feel any pressure and staff great and gave very good recommendations regarding wine and food.

We had another wonderful meal at Zazie. The pork chop with stuffing was outstanding and the bread pudding with crème brûle was the best that we’ve ever had. Service was very professional and friendly. Can’t wait to go back !

WE had a complicated dinner with a couple of family members coming and going, and a 7 month old infant who was squirmy. The staff kept up with all, were very attentive, the timing of the servings perfect for a leisurely meal with a cousin and her husband we only see once a year. The trout was succulent, the lemon ravioli fabulous, and roasted vegetable platter delicious. Thank you Zazi's for your usual wonderful experience in our neighborhood!

Zazie was great and so was our waitress. A menu that is different from most other restaurants.

The fresh fish was delicious. Small but nice wine list, reasonably priced. Tip is included in the price of menu items. Not even a place on the bill to add an additional tip. So, we added some cash at the end.

Great time, parking is difficult but worth the effort.

My husband loved the chocolate marshmallow dessert while I enjoyed the cappuccino. We had a great evening.
