    Service was excellent. The cocktails like field trip and the white sangria were excellent. Food was hit or miss the mezze dips were different and tasty. The hamachi didn’t taste as fresh as it should have. The dumplings were not good af all. The grilled branzino was perfect. The charred romaine and broccoli were too charred and the smoke killed the taste of them. The desserts looked great but tasted meh

    Overall my experience at Zou Zou's was underwhelmed and disappointing. I took my mother there for her birthday expecting delicious food and high class environment based on what I read online. However the actual experience was mediocre. The ambiance and decor were nothing but only meeting the NYC trendy restaurants standard level - not impressive. The guests were loud as if they didn't care the noise tolerance of other people around them. Food is really mediocre to barely edible for Mediterranean food. I'm not comparing it with the Mediterranean food in Mediterranean, but with the Mediterranean food that we can get in NYC. Both my mom and I got stomach ache after coming home from Zou Zou's. The only highlight of our night was our server, the food runner and the busboy for our table. They were really attentive, responsive and prompt. They brought warmth to a cold raining night filled with mediocre food and disappointing experience.

    Overall great experience! Some do the highlights were the ambiance, food portion were great compare to the price, and Sweet potato side, which was delicious. We ordered chicken and Lamb chops as our main. Both were pretty good. Overall food temperature was okay, seemed like the restaurant had cold temperature in general, by the time food arrived I felt it bit colder. I also asked for a water when my glass got empty and I didn’t get it for a while but otherwise the service was fine. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Gorgeous room and very tasty food w pretty plating. Sad that the brunch menu has no options for dessert- they offered the sweet babka or french toast (both brunch entrees) as dessert. Disappointed bc wanted to try the baklava. Went across the way and got a cruller from Daily Provisions.

    Terrible service. We’ve lived in NYC for 20 years and shocked at how poorly trained the staff were for the price point. Some dishes were total misses like the golden beet dish that had 1.5 wedges of beet and a ton of raddichio. Dessert is a definite skip. Would not recommend to locals, except for fries and a glass of wine

    Outstanding dinner. Excellent service and food prepared and seasoned to perfection. Drinks were top notch including creative mocktails which made you question if they contained alcohol. The vibe is pure elegance. One tip is the fried chicken for two is a lot of food - could probably feed 3 people. The mezze platter is also very generous with 5 dips. We were so stuffed and had to take some chicken home and couldn’t have dessert.

    Wouldn't return here. Went for a belated Valentine's Day meal and was seated next to friends speaking very loudly to each other. The service was very slow and did not refill our water or return when we asked for the check. Food tasty but overpriced for their portion sizes. Beautiful restaurant, but lacks soul.

    The 5 Dip Tower was very good, a little expensive but quality flavors. The main courses were overpriced, the duck borek was flavorful and well-cooked but largely just pastry and less duck. The caramelized cabbage was awfully sour to the point of no consumption. It smelled pungent and burned the nostrils and tongue with its acidity, had to send it back but the customer service was great and they brought out their replacement recommendation of rice and sweet potatoes which was fine. Ambience was great but food was moderate to good.

    The biggest let down in this rest is the service personnel. Service is the worst among similar rests! Food is ok, they didn’t have a wine list for brunch, bread was burned (who needs bread anyway), table was dirty, no coat service! Overall I’m generous with my feedback because the bill is big at the end and you don’t get that much for it!

    First time at Zou Zou’s. So many terrific dishes. The duck was outstanding. Loved the spreads,especially the whipped hummus. Broccoli (broccoli?) was scrumptious. A few dishes were good but not top shelf. Like the rice. Overall, I would happily return.

    Everything was amazing especially the staff. We had to keep moving the time of our business lunch because the client was swamped at work - the team was so understanding and communicative and made the experience so special despite us just barely squeaking into the last seating for lunch. All that plus the place is just beyond gorgeous and the food is absolutely wonderful. One million stars.

    It took a long time for the food to arrive, including the starters and especially the main courses, even the wine arrived late after we asked twice what was going on with it and after we received the starters. We received the main dishes after 45 minutes! We were no longer hungry and we hardly ate them. There weren't enough waiters who spoke English and our waiter was simply not available and we couldn't find him for most of the meal. In the end we paid for food we didn't really eat and we weren't able to enjoy it because it arrived with illogical differences and we constantly had to look for the waiter.

    Food was interesting. I enjoyed everything I ate but was quite disappointed at two things: one, they didn't serve bread. This is a Mediterranean restaurant and there's no bread? How is that even possible? They serve something if you decide to order the 5 dishes called mezze (and you must get all five...) --- they call it bazlama (it's Turkish, and so am I... never heard of it, but that's not important...) was so disappointed they didn't have a delicious pide or something at the table. Turkish bread is fabulous so this was a miss. Second, the desserts were, well, a fail. They had a cheesecake of some sort and a pineapple dessert. That was it. Even our waitress suggested we get drinks. I mean, not one chocolate offering? TWO desserts in a restaurant of this stature? Again, disappointing. The food overall was very tasty. The ambiance is simply wonderful and the people there were all terrific. We had an incredible table (actually a booth) and had a great time. That said, when I can 'feel' a miss in the food like this, I think it's worth noting so the chef will consider this when re-making his next menu. The place is packed so it's doing a great business. I respect that they make choices; I wish they were just a bit more thoughtful in this manner. Otherwise, a 4 out of 5.
