Great service from Jon. Nice eclectic menu choices. Varying wine selections without being busy or “Cali Cluttered”. Definitely a return is in order.

Service and atmosphere were great. Food was alright. Not bad but just average and a bit expensive. Seemed like a good place for a brunch

Was really looking forward to having Brunch with my girlfriends here but have to say, it was underwhelming. Our server was hardly present and it took asking twice to get small plates for our appetizers that we were sharing. She asked us if we wanted anything else or the check and we had to remind her that we still have drinks coming. They were not busy so it was a bit disappointing that the experience was such. The food was ok and the drinks were ok.

We had brunch here since we were staying at the hotel. The brunch was very pricey, but good. My husband and I split the breakfast sandwich and strawberry French toast. Both were very good. It was just pretty expensive for everything.

We had the “ZuZu, take the wheel” Chef’s choice option from the dinner menu. Everything was prepared well and tasted great. Not too sparse and not too filling. The service was excellent.

Menu was creative and well executed but pricey. Atmosphere was lively to loud with a full house at 9. Service was competent but nothing special. Wine list was a disgrace to fine wine. We drank beers from an equally unimpressive selection.

We arrived a little early for our 5pm reservation for dinner, but they were able to seat us immediately.
We were happily surprised to see that there was a Happy Hour on Sundays and so we ordered a sampling of items from the HH menu of which our favorite was the Brussels spouts and Stuffed Pretzel. We ordered dinner, but saved room for the Show Stopper shake for dessert! Our server, Hilary, went above and beyond to make our meal memorable. She even had a happy birthday chocolate added to the Show Stopper and a sweet birthday card with gift card for me- the birthday girl! Needless to say we will be back and look forward to sampling more of the menu items.

After waiting 20 minutes at our table without being greeted I informed the hostess. After another few minutes went by I asked a server if she knew who our server was.
She took care of the problem and a server came over.
We order our food that was mediocre .
Not impressed with the food or the service. Would not go back or recommend.

Amazing. Food was excellent, service exceptional with solid recommendations (I always love to ask the servers for their opinions on the menu, especially when it changes like ZuZu’s does). This was our first occasion here, but we loved it and will absolutely be back. Drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts were all spot-on. We even went the following morning for brunch after our massages at the hotel spa. Followed recommendations again for breakfast & was not disappointed at all!!

Took my grandaugter to Zuzu for our "Special Wednesday Night" Dinner. I had your VH Salad with salmon. Perfect salad. She ordered your 2.0 Burger with fruits and loved it. I was so happy to see her eat it all up. Then she found out you had milkshakes for dessert (her favorite) and she ordered a Caramel S'mores Milkshake. She said it was "YUMMY!" She is an old soul and we loved the 50s decor. This was my second time to Zuzu.

Just because it is restaurant week, chef and culinary team should not check out. The fried chicken sliders were barely edible, several nice food entrees were missing because restaurant week and there was no chef's feature because, you guessed it, restaurant week. Drinks were great, dessert fantastic and service was nice but food, just left a bad taste in my mouth.

Service was excellent and very accommodating which made the dining experience quite nice. We went during Restaurant Week and ordered off that menu. The Steak Tartar and Salmon dishes were excellent as were the desserts. Cocktails were perfect. Small but decent wine list. We plan to visit during Happy Hour in the very near future....love the decor!

Food was outstanding. Half off wine during Restaurant Week was a bargain! We were surprised by the automatic 20% gratuity added to the bill that was not verbally disclosed by the server. People who don't review their bills might be double tipping.

The restaurant week menu was amazing. I had just finished a big presentation at work and my boyfriend took me there to celebrate. Everything was perfect. Our server, Alizandra (apologies if spelling is off) was fantastic, kind, and professional. The salmon was the best salmon I’ve ever had! The cinnamon creme brûlée was life changing. The Pinot we ordered was fantastic (and quite potent). Thanks so much for an amazing experience. We will be back and are anxious to try the happy hour menu!

What a disaster we had. We decided to try ZuZU for Restaurant Week and arrived at 5:00pm. The place wasn't busy and remained that way. The server was slow in getting our order and the first course came out around 5:40pm. Soup and Cheese, should have taken them 10 minutes at the most. The cheese was fine, but the toast points were burnt. The Mushroom soup had one crouton in it and after that was gone complete one note puree. Then the horrible main course. We both ordered the flank steak medium. 30 minutes later both steaks came out rare, border line blue. Red throughout and cool (not quite cold) in the middle. The side of roasted parsnips ended up being one small parsnip cut in 1/2, two pearl onions and two grape tomatoes. That was the complete main course. We sent the steaks back, I dont mind medium rare but I want it warm in the middle. 15 minutes later both steaks were medium well and burnt on the outside, leaving that nasty after taste in your mouth that you just cant get rid of. The 1/2 parsnip this time was raw and crunched like a fresh apple. We gave up and just asked for the desert course. The desert was decent but the cinnamon creme brulee came with a tart raspberry puree on top which did not go with the cinnamon at all. That puree would have made the chocolate moose cake a home run. The manager apologized profusely and offered us coupons for our next visit, we bluntly told her we would never return. She took 20% off the bill, the final insult for not being able to eat the main course at all. There are 100s of restaurants in Scottsdale, absolutely no reason to visit ZuZus

ZuZu is really understaffed and with the staff they do have, they're very subpar. Sloppy attire and diner level experience. It's clear management's strategy is short term cost focused and is driving this place into the ground. Food came out cold and undercooked, scones were mentioned several times but never made their way to the table, manager never stopped by after food was sent back, and prices were double what I'd pay for this quality at an upscale resort's restaurant.
