Mediterranean
Legendary Orange County chef and restaurateur Zov Karamardian has opened the doors to her newest restaurant, Zov"s Anaheim, located on the corner of Katella and State College. The 130-seat restaurant serves a menu of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine including several flatbreads or "Pitzas," Greek Shrimp Salad, Spiced Lamb Burger and Sumac-Roasted Sea Bass. The stylishly decorated entry leads to a welcoming and elegant bar that offers a local micro-brew beer selection, fine wines and several specialty craft cocktails. The two adjacent interior dining rooms are perfect for large and small parties. Just outside, the patio integrates seamlessly with the interior space and offers ample seating along with a fire pit and large flat-screen TVs.

“Lunch at Zov’s” has always been the phrase used by the OC Power Lunch community looking for upscale cuisine in a comfortable environment. Zov’s offers a unique happy hour and free corkage Sunday and Monday evenings.

Went to Zov's before a concert at Honda Center, and the staff was flustered and hurried, but slow to serve. Understaffed, perhaps. Good beer selection. Service mistakes were made, and it took a long time to bring out some hummus and babaganoush. Babaghanoush was great, tho, with pieces of eggplant and tomato on top. Salad looked good, but the Lamb Burger was too dry ... we left our car there during the concert, and did the 19 minute walk to Honda Center.

We had an 8 PM Sunday evening reservation. It was not crowded and we were seated right away. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We did a yelp check-in and received a free delicious dessert that was plenty for the 4 of us to share.

This is my go-to place to celebrate special occasions. I had an early 3:00 dinner on Mother's Day that was up to my usual excellent experience. We had my favorite waiter, Matt, who has served us many previous times, always with impeccable service. Thank you for top quality food and pleasant memories.

Eating on the Disneyland campus can be a soul-deadening experience unless you are 12 years old. Zov's was a welcome stop - I ate 2 nights back to back. And the mixed drinks are fabulous.

The original Zov's in Tustin I would always recommend, but I cannot recommend the Anaheim location. he food is not nearly as good as the original and the location, unfortunately, is small, very drab and dull in design and because of its size, noise is a huge issue.

We had a large group---7 people---with differing tastes and so we wanted a high quality restaurant with some variety so everyone would be happy. They were! Waiter gave great advice on choosing appetizers, helped others with "this or that?" choices, let people who like bland if something would be a little too spicy. Nice wine selection. We were too full after our appetizers and main courses to order dessert. Next time!

In town for an EXPO. Entertaining clients and everything close by the convention center was booked. I found this little jewel last minute on yelp with great reviews. Client was happy and the food and libations were delightful. The calamari was excellent and the service was the best!

Wonderful welcoming and very attentive service. We had the mezze platter to start and it was great. Friend had the sea bass and loved it. I had the grilled veggie bowl and it was a disappointment- I specifically asked for medium rare salmon and instead got a piece of over cooked salmon. I so wanted to love my meal but the salmon screw up ruined it.

I arrived before my friend and asked to be seated. Only tables were available when I asked if there were any booths, so I sat at a table and waited for my friend. By the time my friend arrived, about 10 minutes later, she joined me and the Maitre D told us a booth has become available if we still wanted one. Of course! This is my 2nd time to Zov's and all I can say is they don't disappoint! Excellent, food and excellent service.

Came to Zov’s on a Friday at 5:30pm. Had a reservation and my husband and I were seated promptly. Our waitress was very nice and helpful with the menu. After we ordered our food and drinks we did not see her for practically the entire meal. We felt bad for her because the restaurant was obviously way understaffed for the evening (JT concert and Honda Center) and she was waiting tables all over the restaurant. Our drinks finally came out and my drink was not the one I had ordered. I must have waited another 15-20 min for them to bring me my correct drink. The food was delicious... but the service was non existent. Fix this problem and I would definitely return.

I mean- I wanted to like this place. The beer was flat, the lamb chops were way over cooked, the “filet” was a sirloin and overdone. It was awful. I wish I could be less brutal, but this place needs to improve.

Honestly, I don't think that I would recommend this location. The lunch portions were very skimpy and expensive for what we got. And we each ordered a salmon dish that wasn't very hot. I also realized after I left that the waiter didn't serve us bread, which is always one of the highlights of my visits to Zov's in Tustin. Overall, I was disappointed by this experience.

The food was outstanding, my wife has some food allergies and Grabrielle communicated with the chef and modified her dish perfectection (parpadelle pasta with grilled chicken), while my pan grilled fish was amazing. Gabrielle attended to our needs and we got an outrageous sundae for checking in on Yelp. It was outrageous!!!
