Authentic and artful Provencale and Tuscan cuisine, complemented by a perfect balance of market fresh California stylings. Part of the menu offers classic dishes, the other rotates innovative, seasonal fare.
Zazou, Víctor and friendly staff have been a wonderful part of our dining nights for many years. We will miss this gem of a restaurant but excitedly anticipate the opening of the new restaurant. Guy et al have never disappointed.
overall zazou is fine but the restaurant is closing at the end of august
Closing the next day for a revamp - which it desperately needs! Used to be a great restaurant - hoping it can re-open and be what it once was...
Great food, drink and service! A gem of a restaurant in Riviera Village
It did not disappoint. The food was good. Worth a return visit.
They are closing at the end of the summer and have a Prix Fix menu that is a good value. My wife had crab cakes, chicken and chocolate bread pudding. I had eggplant and shrimp/carrot gnocchi with creme brulee. All well done with great service. Thanks.
Another great meal from Zazou. We had great service. My wife had the short rib and I had chicken au poiver. Both our favorites and cooked to perfection. The fries with the chicken are a great accompaniment. Thanks again.
Been here 4 times over 4 years and never disappointed. Had a variety of dishes and it has always impressed.
Not a large place. Nothing at the beach is so get a reservation jik.
We all had something different and the entrees were all terrific (filet mignon, Amalfi Pasta, Jalapeño Pesto Pasta). The Brie and Bulb appetizer was recommended by our waiter and it was excellent! We would highly recommend it!
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.
The food was excellent. Our party enjoyed the Monkfish and the Bone Marrow pasta. Guy's famous bread pudding was as good as ever.
Food great--especially the octopus, bursts and prosciutto, and the wild boar pasta.
The restaurant was good just not great. Very expensive; ice tea was "fountain". Service was SO slow due to an onslaught of people. Waiter was nice; ambience nice; I was so cold.
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!
We were a group of 6, who had not seen one another in 11 years. We were accommodated perfectly, and not rushed when our dining experience continued beyond 11pm. Thank you, Zazou!!
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.
Local vibe, good wine selection, friendly servers. I ordered a Thai Salad with steak, medium rare. The cut of beef was not very good, and they served it bleu. Would go back for drinks maybe. There are a lot of options in the area.
I met a friend for dinner and had a great meal. I had the fish and she had the boar ragout. Both were well prepared with great flavor. We said we would look at the dessert menu...which we did and ended up with a chocolate bomb that was great.
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.
I've been to Zazou on several occasions and this was a date night with my wife. Dependably good food. Nice atmosphere and easy to talk. Always good professional yet personal service. They didn't disappoint and we love The Tiramisu!
