    Zama never disappoints. Great menu, excellent food, and very cordial service. Food presentation is also a feast for the eyes. Convenient location and a worthwhile place to dine.

    Service was awful - my friend dishes had hair in them. Had to ask for the check twice, we waited for silverware for a long time, we were there for almost two hours. Not worth the wait and the food wasn’t even that great.

    Marvelous. Sushi is creatively conceived and presented. Marinated cod rocks! Just a top-class experience. Jonas is a terrific server, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

    I don’t eat seafood (by choice not allergies) and found plenty of options to mix/match while others enjoyed the sushi. Favorites were the crunchy tuna roll, Oh Toro, and truffle eel maki. I enjoyed the chicken lettuce wraps, strip steak bites, and portobello maki special. Great service from Jonas - he recommended an entry-level sake for the table which we enjoyed too.
