Zutto Japanese American Pub Ratings and Reviews
Our service was subpar at best - it took 10 minutes just to get menus. They seemed understaffed which might have been the problem. We got cocktails (moscow mule + grave digger) and both were standard. We got several different sushi rolls which were delicious, but came out very far apart which was odd. We also had the zutto pork buns which were fine, but not as good as they usually are. I've been several times before, and think this may have been an off night (it was a saturday at 9pm)
I wanted to try this restaurant after reading very strong reviews. Big disappointment from the first step. I should have turned around when I saw the “B” rating on the front window. The food was mediocre. The dumplings were heavy and the spicy ramen dish lacked punch. I enjoyed the tempora shrimp.
The restroom was quite dirty as was the floor and the walls leading to the kitchen and storage rooms.
When my wife pointed out a hair in her dish the manager tried to suggest it was not hair. He was polite, but one should not argue with your diners . Our Waters’s was nice. It was a lousy experience overall.
Randomly picked a Zutto for a team lunch (10 ppl) and was pleasantly surprised! Very good food quality and many interesting options. Service was attentive and friendly. Venue's got cozy, a bit rustic feel to it, which my team liked. Prices reasonable. We've had sushi rolls, ramen, various appetizers and sliders. Everything was tasty. We didn't drink but there were a ton of sake's and beers on the menu. Maybe next time!
We had to beg to place the order because the waiter would never stop at our table.
We order a paella that shouldn't even be called paella. The rice was burnt and the seafood wasn't prepared with it. They were just grilled separately and then tossed over the rice.
The sangria has almost no fruit and it tasted like industrialized orange juice.
Zutto is one of our staples in TriBeCa, the food is always great and we are never disappointed. Love that it is a casual neighborhood joint. You can go after work or for a casual date night out. From the buns, to the ramen & sushi. You can't get a bad meal here!!
Wanted a casual place to meet up with a friend and enjoy good sushi....Zutto was perfect. Tables are nice size and not on top of each other, service was friendly and efficient, and the sushi was very good. It nice to have sushi in a pub like feel instead of some of the sterile Sushi restaurants in the city. It's a comfortable place and perfect to catch up with friends.
We will definitely be back.
I hadn't been to Zutto in close to 15 years. When my friend suggested it, I figured why not. I was pleasantly surprised by the varied menu--sushi and pub food paired surprisingly nicely. My only qualm was my simple spicy scallop roll cost $11. It was good, but not THAT good. However, will still definitely return for the buffalo cauliflower ($6 happy hour special!) and portobello buns!
Zutto is in our neighborhood and we have been meaning to go for years--and we finally did. As often happens in Asian restaurants to us, we over ordered. Still, the food was very good and we would return. Each of us began with an order of rolls, followed, again for each of us, by a ramen.
We took half of the ramen home and it provided another meal (with our own additions) ; the ramen was almost as good as in the restaurant (meaning, it held up well and reheated without compromising the taste). More and more Asian restaurants are coming to Tribeca; Zutto holds its own with the others.
The space is really cozy (not code for tiny). We had a big table/booth in the back and it was spacious. We were greeted by the server really promptly and served water as soon as we sat down. The food was really really good (we had shishito peppers, a beautiful eggplant app, sushi, sashimi and ramen).
I thinks the prices are reasonable and it's a very pleasant night out.
It got a little noisy towards the end, but not unmanageable.
We specifically went for the Ramen as it got great reviews. Well, it's really not bad at all, but the bar was set for us at Shoryu in London. It's ramen was outstanding. Comparitively we would say this is closer to average ramen. Still, if you are not familiar with ramen try this. It's tasty. Service was a little indifferent and impersonal. We sat outside which made for an interesting visit.
Loved this Japanese with a twist restaurant. Had the Zutto Pork Buns, which were delicious and a bit spicy, but the Short Rib Buns looked great, too. I would try those next time. Loved the Zutto Fried Rice, which was a bit reminiscent of paella. The kimchi is an excellent addition to this rice dish. The Maine Maki Roll was a hit for lobster lovers at the table, and I really liked the short rib roll. Some of the better ramen I have had, too. Loved the noodles, but the broth got a little salty the more I ate. I enjoyed everything we ordered and this is a restaurant I would be happy to dine at again. Both to repeat dishes I liked and to try new ones.
