Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend trying Zazu Gastropub.
First time and loved it! Went for an early New Years Eve dinner and we’re immediately struck when we walked in. Very well done reclaimed space with brick walls and old hardwood floors.
Excellent wine, spirits and craft beer selection with an attentive wait staff even on a busy night.
Excellent food from appetizers to main course and well presented.
No doubt we will become regulars here. A hidden gem away from the busy downtown Auburn scene.
There were three in my party. The wrong food order was delivered to one of us. The other two were finished eating before the correct order came for the third.
Lovely. Amazing atmosphere and delicious food. Friendly staff.
So chic! Love the restoration and style. Food was excellent (Cuban sandwich & I think my partner got brisket bbq plate(?). So tasty but both of us got huge pieces of fat in addition to the meat, so we didn’t like that (some might?). Service was slow (45 mins) but, to be fair, they did have a larger group just as we got seated. We grabbed a drink & enjoyed the vibe so it wasn’t a problem. We’ll be back!
Zazu is a great place for date night. The menu is innovative and changes seasonally. It's not cheap but it is worth every single dollar! The food tastes awesome and although the portions are not huge, it's enough and leaves space for a delicious desert! The ambience at Zazu's is unique. I love it!
Just one note: There are limited vegetarian options.
As always, the food, beverages, and staff at Zazu’s was excellent! This is our new favorite place to eat out - dinner and brunch!
Delicious food, good drinks, and fantastic service!
We had excellent service, no doubt. Absolutely phenomenal server! The table was very cramped for four people and the value left more to be desired. The brisket was dry, the salad (spinach salad) was definitely nothing to write home about, and the draft through the restaurant was super awful. We love the restaurant but this time around with graduation from Auburn students and families in town, the restaurant bended their menu and we were a little displaced for our company that came in from out of town. I recommend this restaurant with hesitation, particularly on game days or graduation weekends.
Great food but very noisy . Prices are fair. I’ll go back
Zazu's is my favorite restaurant in Opelika. Outstanding service, atmosphere, drinks, and most importantly food.
The atmosphere, service and food were wonderful! Everyone at the table enjoyed what they ordered. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was good, the service was great, the bar was not good. Ridiculously overpriced wine for 1/2 glass, 3 to 4 ounces and the cocktails are weak
Some of the best service and food in Auburn-Opelika! The ambience is amazing and the staff are always friendly. Would 100% recommend!
Great place to have a date night dinner with my wife!
Drinks and brisket were great, the baked oysters I would not order again as they were tiny - not what I expected (though the little rolls that came with the oysters were interesting.) We really enjoy coming to Zazu when we are in town, the place has a nice vibe and the offerings are interesting.
As world travelers, we’re extremely surprised and pleased if we get a “best of anything” in any given establishment,in this visit we got no less than three in one visit! Best Dirty Martini, Best Duck, and Best Duck Poutine (basically duck fat fries with gravy!).
We had a wonderful experience at Zazu’s! They food was fabulous!
Excellent service. Party of six. Too much okra with the shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits was average at best. Duck was above average. Catch of the day (mahi) was very good but the sauce was salty.
Perfect crispy chicken skin
We enjoyed our Sunday brunch! The service was friendly, food delicious, and loved the interior feel of the restaurant.
The food was excellent, as was the service. This is a great place for Sunday brunch.
Wonderful brunch. Waiter was so
Kind and efficient. A delightful atmosphere. Will return again…
This is my third time to Zazu...and it never disappoints! My friends and I had a wonderful time...our server was a doll...food was fantastic and the restaurant itself is so cozy and inviting.
I will be back again for sure!
It was a great experience. Wonderful drinks and food. Will be back again.
Celebrated our son’s 19th birthday a little early! Fantastic food, service and atmosphere! This was our 2nd time at zazu and we loved it once again. Everything was delicious. Brisket, pimento cheese burger, shrimp and grits, ribeye and the catch of the day were all a hit. Thanks Zazu!
I have never had a bad experience here. The staff are all fantastic and personable, the food is always terrific, and the drinks are reasonably priced!
I used our OpenTable account to book a reservation but did not receive points. Will not use Open Table to book a reservation with this restaurant again.
Our meal was horrible. My hamburger bun was burnt. The second one was not far off. My husband sent his cold shrimp and grits back.
Loved our server!
Overall an enjoyable evening. Food was good. Blackened fish over grits had nice flavor but was not warm enough. Would like to have crusty bread with the oysters to enjoy the butter sauce instead of the rolls. Service was very attentive. Would definitely recommend.
Food and service were amazing!!! Love the atmosphere of Zazu as well! The bread pudding was the best we’ve ever had !!!! Definitely worth a visit.
Neat little place, great menu an ambience. Service and food was wonderful
This was the perfect place for our friends' get-together. Great food and service!
Had reservations at 6:30 and got seat right away. The server was great and the food was delicious! Will definitely go back soon!!
One of our favorite spots in town. Great atmosphere as usual. All 6 adults ordered a different meal and every plate was finished. We will definitely be back soon.
Server was fabulous, food was great. Everyone at table was happy with their entrees.
It was wonderful!
