Everything was wonderful, as always! We were celebrating our anniversary and the menu and cocktail list looked fantastic online. We are late diners as well and appreciate that they are open late. We had the scallops and the pork belly/loin dishes at the recommendation of our server, Garret. Both were delicious! Garret was very attentive and made wonderful cocktail recommendations as well. Obadiah Parker, a local musician, was an unexpected but highly welcomed addition as the entertainment for the evening. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic experience with Zack my server. He recommended exactly the right amount of small plates and in the right order with the right wine pairings. The food was delicious. The yellowtail hamachi crudo was outstanding!!! The peanut butter cheesecake with lime and fresh blackberries was a delightful way to end my meal.

Always have a good experience at Hotel Valley Ho and ZuZu. We made lunch reservations because it was Christmas Day but they were very slow. Had an Orange Breeze cocktail (my favorite) at the bar before lunch. Had the ZuZu burger and “double fried” fries. Service was spectacular. Ordered the “showstopper” shake for dessert and it didn’t disappoint. We live in the neighborhood and always enjoy dropping by for drinks and dining.

I made reservations for my family of 8 to have Christmas Brunch. They had two options for dinning. In the restaurant with specials and full menu or in the Sands bldg there was buffet. We choose the buffet. It was wonderful. They had fantastic array of many different dishes. The service was excellent. The dining room and patio area was very festive. I will absolutely recommend this event. Thank you Hotel Valley Ho for making our Christmas special.

This was a wonderful dinner with friends. The food was truly fabulous. A couple of raves from our table were the "best" chop ever eaten and the scallops were just perfect. Will definitely be visiting again.

We had a group of eight with reservations. They were ready for us, and the service was first rate. The food was excellent, and there was something for everyone. I was impressed with the menu. The great service really made it special. The server was prompt, pleasant, gave us plenty of space for conversation and took care of everyone. The food arrived all together, with no one waiting for their meal. In a party of 8, that's pretty good!!! Would go back in a heartbeat. The decor is awesome. They have great poolside tables as well.

Went for Thanksgiving special dinner and to celebrate a birthday. I indicated in my reservation, and confirmed when my the restaurant called to confirm my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. There was no acknowledgement of a Birthday celebration when we arrived. They had a nice outdoor seating area, when we asked if we could sit outside, we were told no. The service was very slow. We sat for 15 minuets before our waitress came over to see if we wanted drinks. The food was ok, but the rolls were stale and the portions were small. I was very disappointed with our Thanksgiving meal.

lovely, unique brunch spot with mimosa and bloody mary bar! our reservations were for the 10am on the patio and it started off lovely, but we ended up moving inside to the bar after eating around 11am, because the sun was moving and it was getting HOT! The many patio umbrellas weren't enough shade for our table, although the majority of other tables were completely shaded. The bar area is fun and retro with table seating options as well as at the bar.

ZuZu is one of my standbys, a completely reliable venue for any meal of the day, including cocktails and Sunday Brunch, which was the occasion of my most recent visit when I sampled a couple of new southwestern egg dishes, both well-spiced, tasty and utterly satisfying. The Valley Ho’s and Zu Zu’s ambiance are from the mid-50s to the mid-60s and are generally fun. I take meals there by myself but also choose it when I’m with friends who enjoy well-prepared meals and with whom I want to relax and catch up. I recommend it for any occasion.

A group of friends and I were there for a birthday celebration & we had a blast! I ordered a drink that I didn't like and gave it to my friend across the table. The server noticed that and brought me another drink that he thought would be to more of my liking - without asking me. It was a very nice thing to do and made me realize he was paying attention to our table even when he wasn't right by us. The food was fantastic as well. OMG the show stopper shake - AMAZING!

The 1950s architecture and vibe of this hotel is the coolest. The lighting at night is very dramatic, and it gives both a chic and cozy feel. The bar menu is extensive and offers great, fresh options. The patio is large and provides a great outdoor dining option. Our server was prompt and attentive and confidently guided us toward delicious options. The duck and mushroom tagliatelle was fabulous, and the scallops were incredibly fresh. As far as Ceasar salads go, the kale and Brussel sprout Caesar was large and flavorful. Don't skip the cheddar popover!

We made reservations at Zuzu for restaurant week. When we arrived we were sat promptly and were delighted to find out that they also had a half off wine list! Our server was fantastic and helped us choose a delicious Chardonnay. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared. After dinner we moved to the cocktail area to enjoy the live music which was also fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

We took our daughter her for her birthday dessert. Had heard of the amazing desserts here, and they did not disappoint! We had three different ones to share and coffee to round the dessert time off!
Desserts were amazing and beautiful, the services was excellent! Our waiter was considerate and spot on. He also "got" our family personality and smoothly fit his work style to our needs! We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I enjoyed our meal and our waitress was wonderful. Two of us ordered the steak special and absolutely could not cut it with the knives we were given. They brought us other knives, but they were barely adequate. The flavor was great and the sauces and sides were amazing, but I have never had meat that tough in a restaurant. Perhaps it was just an exceptionally tough piece, because I have always found the food here to be outstanding.
