we have been to ZuZu for cocktails, but this time, we tried Happy Hour + dinner. we were disappointed. the Happy Hour menu is very sparse, and the food was just OK. the only item we really liked was the Shrimp Cocktail from the standard dinner menu. to us, this restaurant looks like it needs a "makeover."

Had a 12pm reservation. Couldn't figure out where we were supposed to park and ended up parking on the street and walking. Had to wait another 10 minutes before being seated. Service was slow. Our waiter was nice but never seemed to be around when we needed something (clean plates, drink refills, the check). Food and drinks were overpriced and not very exciting. We shared the smoked salmon plate (menu says it comes with bagels, but it was served with toast) and the enchilada style burrito (giant but nothing special, pretty flavorless and didn't seem to be any cheese in it). For the prices I would expect more unique items and better quality. This was definitely a one and done brunch for us.

We went for my graduation celebration and it was amazing. Every dish was so good. It would have been nice if they’d done something special, since it asked when I was making the reservation if it was for anything special, but regardless it was great.

We wanted to try this place but we stumbled into it during the the AZ Tiki Oasis event and the place was jam packed with people wanting a table. The food overall was pretty good but I’m not sure the value for the money was there. The service was also just ok probably because they were so busy. For $80 lunch for two people with no drinks you would expect both amazing food and amazing service. We may try this place again on a normal day but it wouldn’t be my first choice for lunch.

We very much appreciate how the staff at ZuZu made our anniversary dinner memorable! We received a nice card at the end of dinner with a coupon to use for a future visit.

My husband ordered the steak with chimmichuri sauce and I had a chicken dish with pistachios and grits. Both dishes were surprisingly lacking in seasoning and needed additional salt. The flavors were a bit odd for each dish, but perhaps our palettes are not as refined as the chef. We also had the lobster bisque which was completely overpowered by micro greens or some kind of leafy herb that was used for a garnish. The bits of soup we had without the herb were quite tasty so it is unfortunate to have only enjoyed a few bites from the large bowl.

Overall I’d recommend ZuZu for their happy hour drinks and food as well as lunch. However I would NOT recommend ZuZu for dinner unless you enjoy a more eccentric flavored meal.

Great food and outstanding service from Rachel (hostess) and Jon (waiter) for our party of nine. We had a great table on the patio. Everyone loved their food, especially the steak burgers and a really tasty chicken breast dish with special grits. It was my birthday and the restaurant gave me a handwritten note with a gift card for a future visit and a yummy desert of my choice. I had the chocolate creme brûlée which was incredible! Highly recommend - you won’t be disappointed.

For the price of $45/person, not worth it at all! Minimal food that was bland. Only eggs offered were casseroles. No omelet station, carving station, side dishes. Only a tiny cold and hot bar served by staff that made sure to give you a small amount. Only good offering was cold shrimp and small crab legs. Oh, and a kale salad. The only green offered. Drinks $13-15 each. Tab for 5 was $400 before tip. We were hungry soon after. If we could get our money back I would in a heartbeat. Not worth it!

Food we had was outstanding. Seems like a very limited menu so that is why we chose to eat there only once during our stay. It was a busy night so food took a little longer than expected buy we were just fine with it since we were on vacation and we were watching the Zags beat UCLA in basketball! Our waiter was amazing as is all the staff at Hotel Valley Ho.
