This place will throw you back to the 50’s and 60’s for sure. Great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff and food was delicious. The only thing I would say to change is - bring life to the dish being served. It was just like bam there it is.

The food was excellent. Had the Albacore Tuna and the sauce was to lick the plate. I had to ordered fries to be able to eat the last bit of that sauce.
The other great thing was the live music. The duo was amazing.
Service was also very good.

Bloody Mary bar is terrific! They offer all kinds of yummy things to add to your bloody.... bacon, green beans, celery, different seasonings , olives; it’s delicious and fun!

Ordered eggs Benedict, they were flavorful ! They also bring little breakfast muffins to the table which were crumbly ( I loved these with my coffee), my two dining companions thought they were too dry. Our server was attentive and nice!

I would recommend this creative little breakfast spot in the Valley Ho Hotel.

I’ve been a life long lover of HVH. I was so excited to see the restaurant remodel. It’s gorgeous. The restaurant & service & food was uneventful . The food runners were super friendly. The waIt staff, not so much. Waiter seemed unhappy to be at work. He only did what he needed to do. Felt lime we were am intrusion. Food was just ok. I’ve been here so mama times & it was great them. Instill miss Trader Vicks. Love the entire hotel, it’s the most beautiful hotel

As a local for 11 years busy with kids, we had not been here and now I am kicking myself! What an incredible asset to us here in Scottsdale!

We decided to have dinner here with our son home from college before we went to ZOOLIGHTS (another wonderful experience).

The vibe is so cool! We sent some pictures to our son in Dallas, TX that works in advertising and said it could be out of the set of MadMen!

Our waiter, John, was wonderful and the food was incredible! The dates are a must have and then VH salad is incredible!

My wife and I are looking to get a group of friends together to do a group dinner and our Dallas son in Advertising wants to check it out too!

Great job ZuZu!

ZuZu is iconic and the food is delicious. The home of movie stars in the late fifties and sixties has just undergone a renovation which thankfully enhanced instead of ruining its mid-century ambiance. The food is unique and delicious. A special place we love to visit. We enjoy using the valet too, which is free with a validation (though we always tip liberally). Can't beat this spot for brunch!

Service was a little slow at brunch, even though the restaurant was not very busy. The mimosa bar seems a little pointless - three juice options, three other options (flavored syrups, I think), and a bowl of mixed berries you can add to your mimosa. I would prefer to have a mimosa flight if they wanted to have a different or customizable option. They used to offer a great scone basket with brunch, but did not offer it this time. Omelet was ok, description sounded better than it was. Ingredients were not cooked into the omelet, seemed to have been almost completely cooked and just folded over the filling ingredients. Overall, decent but cannot compete with better brunch options in the area.

Having lunched at ZuZu several times in the past we were disappointed mainly in the food. We missed the potato chips they made specially and the burger was under cooked and sandwich too big to eat as a sandwich. Sometimes less is more.

We started at the bar and really enjoyed their barrel-aged infused drinks. The bartender was friendly and helpful. We should have stopped there.

The service in ZuZu was inattentive and the food was mediocre. Our favorite “dish” was the Kennebec chips with French onion dip. The Elote salad was over chilled and boring, the chimichurri cauliflower appeared to have been prepared at least one day in advance, the crispy poached egg was a bland and starchy mess. The only discernible flavor in the Ahi Tuna and avocado was the overly prominent sesame oil, which won the battle against the oddly paired corn chips. And while we both really like caramelized onions, they obliterated the flavor of the light fish in the Hiramasa crisp - and why even include that flavorless wafer?

Then, when we finally got our wandering server to bring us our check, we saw we’d been charged for 2 glasses of wine we’d not ordered. After we gave him our card for the the corrected bill, we discovered the amount charged to our card was literally 7 times the correct amount. It took another 15 minutes or so to resolve that (we hope it was resolved - we are monitoring our credit card online).

The evening was even more disappointing because we live close to the restaurant and have enjoyed better experiences in the past. Can’t imagine when we will be moved to return.

Brunch:

We had 7 people in our party and everyone enjoyed what they ordered.

Coffee is good. They have non-dairy creamer options.

I have a weakness for lobster rolls...this one was good. It had a little too much tarragon for my taste. The bread is perfectly buttery.

The only reason I am giving them a four rather than a 5 is the donuts had more cooking oil flavor, but the dipping sauces were great....loved the marshmallow.

Service was a 5

I would definItely return here for brunch. If you have not tried it, you should.

After having to send back avocado toast three times because it was done cold the first time with the eggs so cold that the yolks were hard, the second time it was covered in olive oil, and the third time it came correct but all of the other people eating were done with their meal. It seemed crazy that something so simple could be so difficult to prepare. The waitress reached across us while we were speaking to pour coffee rather than walk around. Poor overall and disappointing.
