This is the most charming restaurant! Several levels of dining are available as well as an outdoor area. There are two bar areas too. The menu had a variety of choices and the food was delicious! I had the Shrimp & Grits and my husband had the Cheeseburger w/ a Salad. Highly recommend!

We had brunch on Easter Sunday. There were 4 of us and 3 meals were perfect, but the meal that wasn't was the Fried Chicken Sandwich. The chicken was too large to be part of a sandwich and the flavors were just not great. This dish definitely needs some work.

First visit to a restaurant since COVID pandemonium and it was well worth the wait. John, the waiter, was attentive without being intrusive. Blackened mahi over grits was excellent. Signature bread pudding tasted better than I remembered.

We had a great meal, drinks, and time to talk. We were disappointed twice when we ordered and Katrina, the waitress, returned to tell us they were out of daily catch and another menu item, after Katrina had taken the time to describe and tell us how good each item was. Better communication between chef with wait staff about availability would have alleviated this issue. Overall we did enjoy the night out and ambiance. We love downtown Opelika!

Arrived 20 minutes early and was seated right away! Great food with a limited menu. They were out of the fish but the dish we got instead was fantastic. Definitely eating here again

Selected Zazu as a place to meet some dear friends we have known for over 32 years. They were traveling from Colorado through Alabama and I chose this restaurant as our rendezvous spot. We have visited Zazu several times when our daughter was attending Auburn and it never disappoints. Thanks for helping to make the meal and the reunion special.

Food was very good. Started with the spinach salad which is always very good. I had the Bronzini which was delicious. Hubby had the mahi with a wonderful sauce, which incorporated Conecuh sausage. Yum! Our friends had brisket which looked excellent and they both enjoyed their dish. Bread pudding for dessert was good and the caramel sauce was heaven! Would like to see a couple more options for appetizers, especially when ordering wine and cocktails to enjoy with friends. Best part of the evening was our server Kaitlyn - professional and attentive without being intrusive. She was friendly and made our experience at Zazu all the more pleasant (kind of like that caramel sauce)!

Very quaint old historic building that made for a perfect dinner setting. Every dish our party of 3 had was exceptional quality and taste. We can’t wait to go back next time we are in town and try the menu they have that month.

I like this place quite a bit but it is really loud. Very cool looking restaurant but very open so conversations carry a long way. I will go back, no doubt

It was wonderful. Our server was very quick to get our orders. I got the brisket and my husband got a burger with duck fat fries! Both are highly recommended!! The beer prices were great, and they had many options! The bread pudding looked amazing-too full to get any.

Great food, decor and atmosphere. I had the Mahi which was very good. The restaurant has 3 levels/stairs so if you have problems with stairs, may want to request a lower level.

Zazu was fantastic. We frequent Zazu often, but had family in town and it was their first time. I had the blackened fish, which I thought was expensive, but it was completely worth the price. The service was great too!
