I recently dined at ZuZu and I really enjoyed it. They have a good menu and something for everyone. If you’re a local or place to make it to Phoenix, head over to Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale and see for yourself, you won’t disappointed.

My friend and I went here to celebrate her birthday over lunch. The table location, staff and food was excellent. They even offered a dessert for her birthday. Definitely one of those places that I will return.

We ate lunch here and it was pleasant. It was quiet so you could have a conversation which was nice. The service was quick and very friendly. The food was very good...we had the hummus platter which was amazing, the steak salad and the ZuZu burger. The burger due to size was messy to eat, but very good. We would return.

Such a great and perfect place and ambiance to talk to colleagues or family. The ZuZu burger was wow top 3 burgers I have ever had! Really great place, location, and atmosphere; went with a couple colleagues, the music was perfect for millennials and Gen Zs, and it was just great. Really amazing servers too! I look forward to bringing many friends and family here in the future.

Love the quirky 70s vibe this restaurant has, the lighting was very romantic. We had the ahi poke, calamari, and scallops. All were phenomenal! I would definitely go back. You even get a 20% off coupon on the bill for your next visit.

Great food, the scallops are excellent. The restaurant validates valet parking, so you can drop your car off in front. The restaurant is on the far side of the bar/ lounge and is seventies retro with a dark ambience. The wait staff is attentive, and the food was excellent, albeit expensive. Don’t forget to get the parking ticket validated at the hostess stand.

My company and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at ZuZu, both the food and the ambiance. I was greeted by the staff even before I entered the door of the restaurant. There are quite a few interesting items on the menu along with the more usual ones; plenty of choices reasonably priced. The service is excellent. I had fun watching people coming and going to and from the hotel lobby, checking out the latest fashion trend. If you like a trendy place, ZuZu will not disappoint.

The food was terrible. The vegan burger was burnt and obviously cooked on the same grill as they cook their meat. Their showstopper shake was photo worthy but not really worth eating and the panda cotta was like vanilla jello. So disappointing as I love this hotel and property.

I have eaten here a lot and usually really like it, but they have limited the lunch options, so there are very few sandwiches. Neither can my companion or I thought that our meal was any good. I may avoid at this place for lunch in the future

I would recommend this restaurant. I took my husband here for Father’s Day for the first time and we had a great experience. We were uncertain where the restaurant was within the hotel so we pulled and asked the valet personnel and they were super nice and welcoming. We get out of our car and walk up to the restaurant hostess where we were greeted pleasantly. The hotel ambience was like a scene from the 60 or 70s with a modern flair very cool and the service was spectacular. We ate the Steak and Eggs and it was cooked to perfections with the chirchimme. It was a great choice. This is definitely a place we will visit again soon.

Good food and nice atmosphere for a joint birthday date night out with my wife. We got the cauliflower appetizer (don’t remember the name of it) and it was delicious. The scallops were amazing and the zuzu burger was on point too. Band that was playing was ok, could have been a little better but wasn’t terrible. Definitely will be coming back!

The food, service, and ambiance is always great here, we just feel the pricing is a little high for the setting. However we continue to return as it's one of our favorite spots. The bacon wrapped dates are amazing and I always order the quinoa spoon salad with poke added on top which is great, and my husband enjoys their burgers & fries. But please bring back the truffle ketchup!! Also this review is for dinner in the restaurant. We won't return for lunch in the bar area as we waited almost an hour for just a salad... seems understaffed for lunch.

We went for restaurant week. The Filet Mignon and veggie pasta was wonderful. The banana cake dessert was over the top. Our favorite thing however was the chopped salad. It was wonderful. The wine menu was nice too at 50% off select bottles. We did not order that but a few glasses of the Rombauer Chardonnay. It was a bit pricey but a good pour.

We enjoyed the yellowtail sushi appetizer and the chicken was outstanding. My wife’s scallops were just pretty good, a bit greasy, probably wouldn’t order again. The Manhattan I had was outstanding. Ambiance and setting were very nice and Zuzu was very kid friendly...bonus. We’ll be back.

What a fun gem of a restaurant. I love that they haven’t modernized the place. Slate rock on the walls. Takes me back to when I was a kid. Ok I enjoyed the nostalgic part being there played. Outside of that, the food was AMAZING! All four of our party reacted the same way after literally eating every last bite. Yummy! For sure we will return!
