The restaurant space is great use of a historic building . The food was good and one in our party declared his waffles “ the best waffles ever. One dish was sent back because it was cool but another one came soon as a replacement

Friends of the enemy (UGA) requested returning to Zazu after dining with you the last AU—UGA game in Auburn. You did not disappoint! Everything was great - our waiter made great suggestions and was very friendly. PLUS we also got to watch Bama lose!

Great service, awesome food selection and the atmosphere was welcoming. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I placed a special request for a flower to be placed on the table with my reservation but this was not honored and I was not called to be made aware that they were not able to do it beforehand. That was my only dislike. I would definitely still eat there again, but a tad bit disappointed because we were celebrating a new job.

Food was great. I had pork belly, egg rolls, duck entree and bread pudding. Would absolutely order each one again.


Service was pretty bad. I sat at the bar and the solo bartender had a full bar as well as tables to rake without any servers assistants, managers chipping in, etc. I only interacted with the one bartender and he food runners the whole time. Had to ask to have appetizer plates cleared when entree was delivered. Entree plate was still sitting in front of me when my “to go” desert finally showed up 20 minutes after ordered.

Loved the vibe, the architecture! The white cheddar burger was an amazing standout at the table! The combination of toppings is a delightful and delicious surprise! The slow roasted brisket was so yummy! The blackened fish was a little too salty for our taste but prepared and presented so well!

The deserts were awesome! Including a Makers Mark ice cream combination I am determined to try to replicate at home amd a killer bread pudding! I get up in South Louisiana so when I say Killer bread pudding that means something. Amd the hard sauce was spot on!!

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.

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.
