Zazu hit a top 5 star on every aspect of dining! The last month, I’ve been 3 times and it has been consistently excellent on great food (fish entrees and burgers- so provides variety without losing quality).
Service excellent from the first contact where I called to follow up on the Open Table reservation I has made. Bartender answered and she answered everything I needed by accessing reservation.
Waitress, waiter and bartenders that provided service for our dinner had great attitude, spirit of willingness to meet unique requests. One time my friend and I sat at the bar to have a drink before we were seated at a table. We had so much gun with the lady bartender, we stayed and had dinner at bar which I normally would not want to do.
It was not too noisy like some restaurants. Price was good for food and service. Host walked outside last night to take a group pic for us and was happy to do so.
5 Star Restaurant all the way around.

Sat us down right at our reservation time and the service from start to finish was outstanding! We had the Mahi Mahi, Blackened fresh catch, Brisket and two hamburgers in our group and every person gave the food 5/5 stars!! Highly recommend!

For the second time in a row we were disappointed by Zazu. We’re accustomed to the noise level in this historic building so that didn’t bother us and the service was great. However, a restaurant is all about the food and that’s where Zazu fell short. The spring rolls appetizer was overcooked and then three members of our group all had burgers and all three were overcooked.

Went for my mother's birthday dinner. waiter brought a pitcher for her flowers which was sweet. I had the blackened catch (red fish) it was delicous. The bread pudding is okay, but the affogato is great! Everybody at the table loved the chicken dish, shrimp and grits, and duck. And don't get me started on the poutine!!!!!!!!

Our dinner at Zazu’s was to celebrate my daughter’s, son’s and my birthdays. Zazu’s is one of our favorite restaurants, so we knew it would be the perfect place for our dinner. As always, it did not disappoint. From the drinks to the appetizers — that Mexican Street Corn is amazing — our entrees and finally to our desserts, it was all delicious. We have never had a bad experience there.

I had the fresh catch of the day which was Cobia. As always, any of the fish dishes that Zazu serves is a winner. My guests from out of town had the duck and the other had Mahi. Outstanding. Our server, Angelica was top notch. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. She anticipated our needs and did so with a beautiful smile. Can't wait to go back in a couple of weeks for a birthday celebration with family! Keep up the great work.

The ambiance was perfect. We were seated outside overlooking the street! The weather was great. The server was so sweet and professional. She was attentive and helpful. The food was mediocre at best. We ordered the shrimp and grits and the Mahi. The grits are always the key to great shrimp and grits but tonight, the grits were barely lukewarm and bland. The Mahi was decent. The drinks were great and the bread pudding was delicious. I’m sure this was just a bad night because the reviews have been great that is why we chose this place to celebrate his birthday.

We were traveling so didn’t know the local top choices - I chose this restaurant and hoped for the best.
Well, it did not disappoint!!!
This may have been the best meal we’ve had on our journey so far! Everything was excellent!
Love the design and the interior of this place! Menu is small but sufficient and unusual. Our server John from Auburn was excellent! Pleasant, attentive, helpful.
It was loud inside but we still enjoyed ourselves due to the fantastic food - nicely plated and delicious!!
Would very highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return if we are ever in the area again!
