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.

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

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.

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.
