Going through different iterations over the years—formerly known as Zutto Japanese Restaurant, before receiving a facelift in 2011 and becoming Zutto Japanese American Pub—, the love and respect for both American and Japanese culture and cuisine have gone untouched.
With an extensive offer of Ramen, Sushi, Steam Buns, and many other Japanese-inspired fares complimented with a far-reaching list of available drinks ranging from Domestic and Imported Beers to International Wines—and of course, Authentic Japanese Sake—Zutto Japanese American Pub has something for everyone and every situation.

Been going here for some time, but this last time sushi rolls were one half the size, prices are high. Really not worth it to me.

We have been going there since early 2000's the food , the staff and the place is outstanding!! there is nothing bad on the menu! MUST TRY S - Edamame and any of the ramens to start and then you can venture to other foods. We have had 90 percent of the menu. I hope it never changes

Terrible service, food was mediocre and pricey. Will not be going back nor recommending this place. Credit cards were double charged and the staff did not seem to care as they did not check in on us during our whole time there when dealing with the payment issues.

The food was very good and staff were nice. No offence, but we had trouble communicating with one of the server. Her English was just so hard to understand. We had to ask her to repeat what she said multiple times. She was nice but I only wish that she speaks a little more slower and louder.

The food and service were excellent.
We had visiting family from out of town and we were a big group. We were able to get a reservation.
The food was really good.
My faves:
The avocado salad simple but delicious (still thinking about how good it was!)
Mushroom Bao
The cauliflower wings...yum yum yum!

Post graduation lunch with the family—
Service was great, they were very attentive to our needs and my water was always refilled immediately which I always take note on because I’m thirsty. The ramen was decent, I had pork tonkatsu. The sushi was definitely their prize. We ordered a few rolls and they were all delicious. Would come again, maybe in the evening, great date spot.

I found Zutto in 2015. I will come back every time I visit and my friends that were with me in 2015 also come back every time. That should tell you something! Awesome food, great location (short walk from 911 Museum), and cute decor. All the food is good! But, you must have Bao buns and Raman. So, so good!

Really liked their buns and Ramen was delicious. Sushi was average. Made a reservation through open table but still had to wait for a table to be prepared. Overall we really enjoyed and would go back. Was great for our group of 8.

We sat on the Bar on that dinner, and we ordered Zutto Punch which is daily selected fruited alcoholic mixed drink. It refreshed us and not too sweet or too strong! highly recommended and we will try other house drinks next time. We ordered some light appetizers like Seaweed Salad and the Japanese dumpling. The homemade dumpling tasted so juicy and the favor was great! Nice Bar :)

So Pretty of the Sashimi Appetizer with flower decoration just matched the spring break when we had this dinner, and my wife loved this so much! The salad dressing is great! as well as the entree was the pan seared salmon. Great Dinner!!

I came to Zutto with a co-worker after work for a happy hour period, which surprised us a lot! We had 2-drafts beers for $8, delicious three pieces of Chicken Skewers, and the Fresh Crispy Fried Calamari also cost $8. Anything $8! We will definitely come back again! by the way, their happy hour Mon-Fri 3pm-7pm, Sat & Sun 12-6pm. Pretty good right!?

Food was good, small restaurant so rather cosy. Drinks were alright, and service at the beginning was slow perhaps due to the big party. Do not go to the bathroom.

Great food options, everything was tasty and plentiful. Not enough room in my stomach to fit all of their great options so I'll just have to come back. Also, very friendly and attentive service.

Overall quote good, but one member of our party received his food much later than the rest of us. Awkward.

The food and the service were both fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive and our waters were being constantly refilled. The only issue we had with this place was there were a few rather large gnats flying around our table all night. It was a little unsettling.

Short menu for vegetarians but some of the best veggie ramen I've had. Heaps of greens, really high veggie/broth ratio. Noodles were fine, overall a great experience.

I had the seafood ramen and the broth was absolutely delicious, while the ramen was the perfect texture. I loved it so much...and would come here more often if it wasn't such a walk from the office.
