Zazou Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Service was attentive. Held reservations, which could have been due to the fact that Zazou was 80% empty on a Friday night.
The price didn't match the quality of the food, which was extremely disappointing, especially for a birthday dinner.
We ordered the Mediterranean salmon dish which was courteously re done because it was served cold.
The filet was low quality meat, but cooked perfectly medium rare. It was served with french fries, which were not terrible in an of themselves, but AWEFUL in a $38 steak dish.
Bread pudding was ok.
I was late for Mother's Day reservations so it wasn't my first pick, but Zazou ended up being a wonderful choice for celebrating my wife on Mothers Day. Excellent Bloody Mary's to start, fantastic brunch selections and helpful + consistent service we're up to the Mother's Day brunch expectations!
I have been to Zazou many times over the last several years but last night was just average. The service was very good but the food was just ok. I ordered the scallops- and the little muscle was on all of the scallops. Culinary school 101. Such a sloppy preparation of the scallops. The cauliflower was mushy and the purée was not hot. My friend had the monkfish and she was disappointed. Another friend had the short ribs- they were delicious but presentation???? A pile of potatoes, veg and meat- can't you do better than that?
Sadly, I will probably not come back to this restaurant which has great memories for me. It send like the kitchen just doesn't care.
The dinner was with special friends from the UK and the service was great. The waiter made several great recommendations for our appetizers. We ordered every one of his recommendation but the octopus and shrimp on toast were the best! Don't forget to order desert as the tiramisu was delicious. All in all, the evening was wonderful.
One of the dishes had a lot of red pepper flakes in it and it was not listed on the menu as spicy or even that it contained red pepper. That was a disappointment. The food was good but it had been a long time since our last visit and it was not as good as we remembered. The prices seem to have gone up a lot to andcthe value was just not there.
The food was over priced. Too much for the bree chease and bread. It was the same price as the clams?? The filet mignon. While the meat was tender, it had absolutely no flavor. Think Prime has by far a better filet.. Service was slow.. The bus boy said it was unusually busy so I won't hold that against them.
We've been to Zazou several times and know the food is always good quality. This night it seemed they were in over their heads a bit. We waited 30 minutes past our reservation for a table to open up. The bread, for which there is a charge was slow to come out of the kitchen. My wife's steak was cold when delivered. Once that was remedied, all was good, but took some effort to get there. Assume this is a one off experience.
Alway love dining here and last night did not disappoint. Lots of different items on the menu that you don't find at other restaurants. We split the polenta-delicious and the beet salad. I also had the French Onion soup-it hit the spot and my husband had Duck Legs and he loved them. We decided spur of the moment and luckily we were able to get in. Can't wait to go back!
I am not from the area, so I relied on web reviews and the general vibe of Zazou's website in choosing to book a business dinner there. It was completely underwhelming. The restaurant was virtually empty when I arrived just before 7 p.m. in advance of my guests, but no one greeted me as I entered. In fact, one employee looked directly at me, turned, and walked into the back without so much as acknowledging me with a "Hi, someone will be with you in a minute."
Service was generally pleasant, but our server seemed disinterested in attending to us over the course of the meal--in spite of the fact that we were virtually the only patrons in the place. Entrees were adequate, dessert was nice enough, but tables were bare (counter to the photos showing full linens, suggesting a more upscale experience for dinner) and presentation was lackluster. Further, we got the impression that staff wanted to close up early, and that impression was reinforced when the lights went up a bit and music shifted to thrashy, loud rock around 8:30 p.m. in spite of dinner hours posted as 5 to 10 p.m. Mind you, our party of 5 had an average age of 55--not exactly the headbanger demographic.
I travel to the area fairly regularly for business, but I will not be returning to Zazou for business dinners. The experience was not on par with the level of quality my organization delivers.
This was my go to place for many years but it looks like things are getting too relaxed. We got two orders of the Peppercorn chicken and fries. Cold.....Servings have been squeezed down noticeably. I love the location but the place needs to be refreshed to match the newer places opening up.....
