Found ZuZu on open table. We had a great experience dining outside. Majority of tables are in the shade. All tables were wiped down and all staffers were wearing masks. The host was very polite and was always seen holding doors and greeting guests. Our craft cocktails were great. Also talk about a hidden gem...$5 mimosas. We will be back just for that. All of our dishes were great and the portions were great for the pricing. Sharon was our server and was so polite and attentive. She overheard we were celebrating a birthday and provided a handwritten birthday card and a gift to bring us back for our next experience. We will be back. Great job Sharon!

The 2.0 burger is excellent, priced a bit high but good. The setting was ok, due to COVID we were set on the side of the patio next to something not so pleasant, table was on a slight slant. They did not seem to sanitize as well as they should have. Out server was excellent!

Amazing ambiance. Servers were attentive and we were greeted with a $25 gift card for my girlfriends birthday. The food was delicious, drinks were well made. Maybe we missed drink specials or food specials but it was a bit pricy for a casual night out. Loved it and would go back however

The service was a little slow. We were there for a special occasion and I feel like there was an opportunity to make us feel a little more special and welcomed. We waited awhile to order our drinks and food. When we ordered our drinks it took at least 10 minutes for our bottle of champagne to arrive. For the prices and reviews, I expected more and am a little disappointed.

We were early so ordered from the "casual cuisine" menu. Jake was great and made good recommendations. The calamari was outstanding. Some of the best I've had. The other show stopper was the butterscotch pudding cake. If you like butterscotch, you should try this. The ZuZu burger and fries were both far above average. We were early and the only diners for most of the meal, so yes, it was quiet. It was a very nice dining experience and we will go back.

Consistently good service and food quality. Beverages are also excellent. The service can initially come off as snobby, for sure, or overly polite (not great "bedside manner", if you will). Dining area can be noisy which makes it difficult to have a conversation with others in your own party. It's the way the tables are arranged, really. Bloody Mary bar doesn't always have the same items available. This last time, they were out of some of the garnishes. That shouldn't happen when spending that kind of money on a drink bar. Remodeled Zuzu is SO much nicer than it used to be, though.

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.

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.

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.
