This Japanese pub is near my office and was a favorite of mine pre-pandemic. I also enjoyed eating at Zutto's outdoor tables over the summer. With cold weather upon us and the pandemic grinding on, however, Zutto needs to up its cold-weather outdoor eating game. Like many NYC restaurants, it has a dining shed (in the parking lane), divided into individual sections holding one table apiece, for those who are nervous about eating inside. Which is great! But the furnishings are pretty low-rent -- including plywood benches that become uncomfortable before dinner is over -- and the heating is nearly nonexistent. Last night, with the outdoor temperature in the 30's, we huddled around a single portable heat fan that allowed us to take off our gloves but not our hats and parkas.
Great service and the food was incredible. The drinks were so good too: my lychee martini was fabulous. Made my birthday so fun!
The place was sort of busy when I went in for an early dinner at 6:45. The wait staff was constantly moving to the point that is was a little disorienting.
The food is was delicious and came out in a reasonable time (within 15-20 mins of ordering).
The tables were clean and the restaurant did check for covid vaccine cards
The food tasted as great as it looked. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Would definitely come back
Birthday- loved it!
Great food and yummy sushi, special rolls are unique
Not impressed - poor service and food was mediocre.
okay, the photo online are kind of not true to feel, the place is not big, open in and out A/C was on i can see it's one of those home unit not powerful enough, and the fans are running. food is Not bad, but i wouldn't said was great. the drinks are okay, some how my wife's specialty drink was discounted for happy hour but my old fashion isn't, but over all pricey for what we felt we got. we've dined in many places this did not feel like it's worth the money, the waitress was nice, but I think the owner and chefs needs to really keep their conversations to themselves not talk aloud like no one can understand them, because we did, and i felt like i am eating in the corner of lower end restaurant, it's got room to improve. but did not give the same vibe they portrayed in the website.
The staff was friendly and the Ramen was delicious. Great place to meet friends for lunch.
Great spot for great tasting affordable Japanese cuisine. Huge variety. Everything we had was delicious.
Tasty food and lots of it, and they gave us lots of time to enjoy it at our table. Will be back!
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.
The food were good. Service was excellent. However desserts were limited.
It was closed
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.
Everything was amazing from the service to the food. This was my second time here and it was just as amazing as the first. I always recommend this place to everyone I know!
ZUTTO is our neighborhood sushi restaurant for the past 18 years. The food is delicious and innovative. Bianka our wonderful and trusted waitress is always there to greet us with a smile and making sure we have a wonerdul meal.
This place doesnt have happy hour or restaurant week menu as it advertised
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.
Went for restaurant week. Good was delicious and plentiful!
This is a really great place. I heard good things and finally went here with some friends. The food is excellent and there are a lot of choices on the menu. The ramen is fantastic. The place looks great. The service was great. I will definitely be back.
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!
Decent food in a laid back environment. Happy hour specials are also quite reasonable. Ramen was good as always and the sushi was better than expected.
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.
Every single food item I had was incredible. The drinks were delicious and packed a punch. The service was attentive and so warm. Even the staff making the sushi greeted us. 10/10 absolutely coming again and bringing others to enjoy Zutto. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
Jack hammering outside made conversation inaudible at times. Service uninterested and inattentive. Food good.
This was an awesome restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. The food was amazing and the ambiance was laid back and fun. A little pricey but definitely worth it!
Always consistent and satisfies all of our family, even our vegan daughter.
Came here with friends on a Saturday night and the food was really good!
The food is always great at Zutto. It's a good go to in Tribeca, always. This was a nice mothers day lunch and I couldn't have been happier with the food and the indoor dining experience.
Great place! I am a sushi lover, hence, very picky. But food at this place is just yummy!! The presentation is beautiful, staff is super friendly and helpful. Couldn’t be more happy I chose this place to have dinner at!
Thank you, I’ll definitely be back.
Great Japanese bar food and ramen! Highly recommend!
Sushi and Ramen at a great price served by nice and efficient people. Portions are generous. Highly recommend!
Great service and good food, but a bit pricey for what it was.
Came here with family and loved it! I even loved th fire roll sushi and I personally don't even like sushi. The ramen was delicious and so were the pork belly buns ( the ones with cilantro and peanut).
Great Sindhi and Raman.
We loved Zutto and will definitely return. The service and food was the best. We had a great time.
Felt super COVID safe and food was delicious! Highly recommend this spot!
Great spot for ramen and sushi. The apps are good as well to include the buns and tuna. Great local spot for sushi and they have good happy hour specials.
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!
