This might be my new favorite place to eat, the food was absolutely amazing and unique.

There were A LOT of very obnoxiously loud and drunk patrons in the restaurant who killed the vibe, but I think that was out of the norm since the manager asked them multiple times to quiet down and it was obvious that the bar tenders and servers were annoyed by their behavior. Hoping that next time we go it is a quieter classier vibe!

I had not seen my mother in two years due to the pandemic and we decided to meet here for lunch. Neither of us had been here for many years. We were very impressed with the design of the restaurant but our best experience was the service. Ashley was an excellent waitress who was working hard but always took the time to check in on us. The food was delicious. I really hope it is not another two years until I see my mom but when I do see her it will be here.

My boyfriend and I visited for our anniversary and had an excellent experience. We both ordered the “ZuZu Take the Wheel” and the chef hand crafted the most delicious meal just for us. My boyfriend also added the drink pairing and he was pleasantly surprised by each beverage he was served! I am unable to consume alcohol and the amazing bar tenders whipped up the most delicious tiki style beverage just for me!

The evening was full of fun surprises, delicious flavors, superb service, and incredible ambience. They also had a live band that was the cherry on top of this perfect evening. We cannot wait to come back again! HUGE kudos to our waitress Ana and all staff that we interacted with! You made our anniversary so special.

Great dinner experience with my wife at Zuzu. It started off with complimentary valet when validated. Next came a cheerful greeting by the hostess (Heidi) followed by wonderful service by the delightful Alex (Alizandra). The decor was very hip and attractive with great use of shapes, lighting and colors. Delicious, well presented drinks ( tamarindo Cosmo and a pineapple tiki drink), some of the best parmesan truffle fries we've ever had and Amazing pork belly grits. For dessert we had the S'mores Short stopper shake which was awesome! The only fail of the night were the drunken wings because the skin was flaccid and not crispy. Otherwise the wings were meaty and had good flavor. We decided to box those up so that we could crisp them up in the oven at home. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend dinning at Zuzu.

Great special day. They are great about birthdays and made it really special. The food was good and we ate off the brunch menu. You are going to pay hotel and Scottsdale prices so that means $100+ for 4 for brunch and only one mimosa.

Fun brunch. Had the poke bowl with cauliflower rice. Rice was a bit too warm and semi-cooked the raw fish. Companions had no complaints whatever. Love the setting; almost expect to see Sinatra wandering around with a whiskey on the rocks!

The only thing bad about this place is when you make a reservation it doesn’t really mean you get to your table on time. I showed up early just so I could check in so I can get in and out by my reservation time. Nope I waited an hour to be seated. From my original reservation time I waited 35 minutes. I probably would not go hear again unless I got in on time to dinner.

We loved the food. I had the ahi tuna and avocado with tortilla chips. My husband had a hamburger. Both meals were delicious. I even took 1/2 of it home for lunch the next day. Still delicious. We did get a toast appetizer. Very good, but seemed overpriced for the size of the order. The service was good until the food arrived for some reason. We then waited awhile to get the bill. If we had been in a hurry, I would have called someone else over, but we were fine. Looked like music was going to start up and they were very entertaining.
