A spectacular experience as always. The Brussels Sprouts, Beet & Goat Cheese Salad and the Chimichurri Skirt Steak were fantastic. And our Server, Carlos took great care of us! The restaurant is also perfectly laid out to handle the current Covid restrictions.

We were disappointed to find the breakfast menu had changed. The food was served cold and grew colder while we waited for condiments. (Eggs and pancakes). The server was very nice. The runner seemed overwhelmed or distracted. The patio was nice.

The food was delicious, with ample portions. To-go box means two meals for the price of one. Great service. Attentive and friendly. We were made to feel welcome.

I went to celebrate my BD and at the same time valentine’s day with my wife, and everything was on top from service to food. I am glad I could get a reservation at Zov’s on that day!!

Delicious food. Fast, excellent service. All the servers were super friendly. One of busboys, Francisco, was super attentive, constantly refilling our glasses...such a hard worker! We all noticed! The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is the dessert menu. It was so short...despite the fact that Zov’s delicious bakery is behind the restaurant. I highly recommend offering deserts from the bakery at the Bistro. We’ll return!

Valentine’s Day. We’ve been here a million times. The only negatives I experienced were no bottomless mimosas and it seemed to take a while to get our check. Service was great at first and seem to tail off. Regardless, we’ll still be back!

Reserve for four people and two separate tables did not receive what I asked they put us at the same table. Was uncomfortable especially it was a special date food came later than it was expected. We did not received our food yet and they started taking our utensils and cups away. But the food tasted was good . But I personally would not go back again.

A Tustin favorite, this restaurant makes you feel at home. Despite the Covid restrictions on dining, the wonderful ambience hasn''t changed. The functional restrictions are barely noticed.

Zov’s is a great place to eat. The food is delicious. Even better, the outdoor seating (with excellent air circulation) makes me feel very comfortable about being there. And the staff is very careful about protecting the guests’ health. This is the only place I eat out.

This is by far the best place to dine in Orange County. I should know I have been coming here since the 1980’s when they first opened. The food and service is excellent. Year after year they exceed my expectations. There are not enough stars to rate this excellent restaurant!!

Are server Brianna was so nice and friendly and made our night!!! The food and ambience was awesome. We had two people in our group that have never been there and they totally want to come back. Also the hostess was very friendly too!!! Thank you so much. My daughter loved the fact that our server’s name was the same has hers but spelled differently.

We didn’t realize our reservation was for the indoor Bistro rather than outdoor side of ZOVs. So we just explained our preference to sit outside & they were wonderful to allow the change. Service & food all perfect!
