Caesar Salad dressing had no flavor, lettuce was brown and beginning to wilt, cheese was waxy. (Server took off Bill, but I would have preferred a good salad.)
They have a chef presentation which was going on when I came in. He was talking about how their pasta is lightly tossed, like it would be in Italy, not soaked like a soup that you may experience at the Olive Garden. I was sold, I ordered the homemade ravioli, and when it came out, it literally felt more like a gnocchi soup than a plate of ravioli. And the flavor was nearly as bland as the salad. I wasn’t surprised when I asked the bartender if it was always this slow, and she replied, “I was expecting it to be slower actually.” We were supposed to close, but the owner is keeping us open a few months longer now. Not shocking at all. So many good places in Kzoo, this is not one I’ll be back to.

Even with it being Valentine's day, my girlfriend and I didn't have to wait on a single thing. Service was very quick, food was immaculate, the setting was romantic. It was a truly special night!

The filet was way under cooked (asked for Medium .. it was rare), and my guest had asked for salmon and risotto.. after being told that it would be difficult but they would figure something out, it had mushrooms in the risotta and he really cannot stand mushrooms. Unfortunately, after letting the staff know, they apologized but didn't offer to make it right. So he sat there for the rest of the evening picking out the mushrooms. The potatoes with the filet also had a whole layer of oil.

I love going to Zazios during Restaurant Week. I met a friend (who doesn't eat meat) and was happy with the non-meat Rigatoni. I had the steak and it was prepared as ordered and it was delicious. The salads and desserts were great too. The young woman who waited on us was very helpful and accommodating. The whole meal was delightful.

Zazzios is one of our favorite restaurants in town. I was a little disappointed to learn there weren’t any specials for Saturday night dinner, but, we still have an amazing experience.

Visited for New Years Eve. Overall the food was good though the Lobster corndog and striped bass were very salty. The soup and desert courses were very good. Overall service was very good on such a busy night.

They ran out of the main course (fish) by our 8pm reservation. We did not get a drink for one hour. We did not get bread for 1hr 10 mins. There was no music as advertised. Every table was sitting without food. How do you do that when you know how many reservations you have. The Manager was doing nothing. We reported issues to front desk. Epic failure for New Years Eve!

Went to dinner for our annual Christmas Eve dinner. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. We started with crab cakes and calamari. Those were e very good. We had filets, pasta and drinks. All 6 guests were happy with their meals. It was quiet so we were able to talk without problem and our server was wonderful. We will return.

I took my mother out for a birthday dinner. The food was phenomenal. Our waitress Madeline was fantastic! She had great recommendations and kept on top of our table. When we got seated I mentioned in passing that we were celebrating an early birthday. The restaurant comped our dessert which was above and beyond what we expected of them. The whole evening was amazing. My mom is still raving about how great her meal was. This is definitely a place I would take anyone visiting to show them the best time. Every time I have been to Zazio’s the food and service has been above and beyond. I just wanted to make sure all the staff knew it was greatly appreciated and 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone. Thank you for making the night so enjoyable.

The halibut entre was the best I have had. All in our party of four were very pleased and impressed with the food, both in presentation and taste. Two of the party are celiac and were comfortable with attention to our need for gluten free.

I brought my girlfriend to Zazios for her birthday. We normally have a great experience, but not this time. Her food came out good, but I ordered the Chop and it came out like a hunk of leather. I reordered another dish but by the time it came out, my girlfriend was done eating. The place was very slow to.

Had a pasta entrée as September was pasta month there. Pasta was good, for $12.00 more you could add scallops and that got me 2 small scallops. Didn't feel that was a good value. Loved sitting outside on their patio and the service was good. Cocktails were good also, however glass by the wine is very pricey.

Food was meh. Several dishes which contained truffle oil relied too heavily on it to carry the flavor rather than accenting. Scallops were cooked well. There was a lack of seasoning. Definitely not worth the cost.

why did zazios stop making its own bloody mary mix? Did you change the recipe for your honey butter? It did not taste the same as in past years. The newer help does not seem as well trained as previous help when they were new.

We went for Sunday branch on restaurant week, my husband and I had the steak and eggs, it was made to perfection, it took a little time, but it was worth the wait, we sub the sting fries for truffle fries and that made it even more special, I don’t believe Zazios have a Sunday brunch on a regular bases but just for restaurant week.

We had a wonderful time. The food was fantastic and the service great. This was the first anniversary for my mom since my dad passed away and I wanted to do something special for her. I took her for restaurant week, and she raved about every course she had. This could have been a really rough night for her and she had the best time. We would recommend Zazio’s to everyone.

The food was fantastic! Restaurant week gave us an opportunity to take my mom out and she enjoyed it so much we went for brunch the next morning. We could not rave enough about the food. We would definitely recommend Zazio’s. We are already planning our next trip!
