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.
We are happy about the indoor dining is reopened since 02/12/2021. Indoor seating is 6 feet apart with Japanese Wall Paper Stands as dividers. During the Covid-19 period, we built out outdoor seating as limited private rooms for first come first serve. We do not take reservations for outdoor dining. However, you could let us know your preferences.

Everything we ordered was so delicious. Waitress was very attentive and thoughtful. Our favorites were the karaage (crispy chicken), wings, yuzu salt edamame, the Zutto fried rice, California rolls and all the ramen we got.

Everything we ordered was delicious. I loved the casualness of everything, and the food was high quality (especially the sushi). Our server was quick, knowledgeable, and very nice. It’s definitely the kind of food you can crave and come back for more. I highly recommend for a casual date night or a dinner out with friends.

The food other than the sushi, was excellent. The sushi, however was very average which was disappointing because the prices were high. I suspect this is because there were very few people dining out in this area during COVID. The sushi was not as fresh as it used to be.
The plum wine was delicious and the service was excellent.
We sat outside which was very pleasant except for occasional street noise.

We have been coming for years, but this was our first visit post-pandemic. The food was incredible - as good as before, if not more so. The service was gracious, attentive, and cordial. Lastly, the outdoor dining booths that were constructed for the pandemic are like mini vacation spots. They have traditional Japanese decorations, fans, and wonderful privacy. I hope they keep these after the pandemic, we had such a lovely time in ours.
In terms of specific food recommendations: the buns are all wonderful, especially the Zutto pork belly buns; any ramen dish you try will be first class; and sushi is terrific, especially the Tribeca roll. We love Zutto!

Beautiful restaurants with attentive and kind staff. The tonkostu ramen had highly fatty pork jowls, not even edible. The chef informed us that there was nothing that could be done about this. Otherwise the ramen dishes were pretty good, especially the vegetarian and seafood options.

I went for my birthday. The service and staff continue to be outstanding.
I love the new outdoor seating design with individual huts and intimate Japanese decor.
The food and sake selection are always well curated.
I would highly recommend Zutto to anyone!

Almost everything was absolutely amazing. Our night began, continued, and ended with amazing service. We ordered the buffalo cauliflower, pork belly steamed buns, shittake mushroom steamed buns, octopus, and pork dumplings to start. We had plum wine and Zutto mules for drinks (also had hot sake later on in the meal). For entrees we enjoyed the kimchi ramen and seafood ramen (one with the pork broth, one without). Dessert, we had the bread pudding and mochi ice cream. I swear the only bad thing I can say is that the bread pudding lacked the flavor of your typical bread pudding but nothing can be perfect and other than that the entire dining experience was a great one! We can’t wait to return!

The outdoor dining was great. Heated and enclosed, with no exposure to other diners. I went when it was snowing out and still felt cozy. Food was great, and for a great price -- I payed $25 for ramen, a shared appetizer for the table, and tip. Overall great.

Quality of food is excellent and we all enjoyed the freshness of ingredients and food flavors. Sashimi salmon, gyozas m, ramen and the banana bread pudding were yummy! Service was subpar by the lady serving us - we understand COVID puts strains on everyone but being pleasant in a service industry should be the minimum. The good thing is that we came next day and had a gentleman service us and he was a breath of fresh air with a positive and can do attitude. Overall a good food experience notwithstanding the service on Saturday. Also, my kid gave the food 10 out of 10 and he is a picky eater...thank you.
