This is an amazing restaurant and cannot recommend it highly enough.
The food amazing and rate it over a 10. Have been to Zov's in Tustin many times and enjoy
her Newport Beach Restaurant as well. You will not be disappointed and
encourage everyone to try this amazing restaurant.

Zov's classic burger is absolutely fabulous. We love to order at the bar, from our favorite bartender Dennis. He is so professional and fun!

We love Zovs. Our server was so personal in conversation and answering specific food choices questions . He was aware of every single ingredient and would also offer tasty food substitution options. Since his family was Sicilian he was interesting to talk with regarding his personal interests in food and family. We would definitely return and look forward to this fine dining experience!
Thank you!!

Horrible, cold food served to us yesterday. All 3 us had burgers that looked like they had been purchased at Costco. Our cheese was not even melted on top. One little tomato and a piece of iceberg lettuce. Beyond disappointing.

Met up with friends for Sunday brunch at 10am. We sat out in the patio area that was covered with heat lamps, which was nice since it was overcast that morning. The service was excellent by our server, Melissa and Guillermo! They would come and check up on us frequently and making sure our drinks (bottomless mimosas) were never empty. The breakfast was delicious as well! We each ordered a breakfast plate and shared a plate of the brussels and bacon side and those were absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Zov's for brunch!

I had let the staff know I was bringing my mother in for her birthday, and you'd have thought we were royalty. We were seated immediately and attended to often. Our food was beautifully presented, colorful, richly flavored though light for lunchtime, and even better tasting than expected. I will return!

Everyone in the party was happy with their food. I ordered the Spicy Lamb burger, excellent as usual.
I normally eat at the Zov's in Tustin. I like the presentation of the food better there. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Visiting the area from Oakland. First time visit and I will definitely go back. The food was terrific.
Had the lamb kabobs and the mezzanine platter. Wow! Also had a hamburger and draft beer. Delish! Beer was icy cold....mmmm!
Service was excellent. Plenty of free parking.

There are other locations, but this is one of the best. It's located in a shopping plaza. It has a well appointed interior and a very nice patio available. The staff is exceptional.

We’ve been regulars at Zov’s Newport for several years and before that in Tustin. We appreciate there is no corkage fee on the first bottle since they have an extremely limited wine list. Our only issue is the cost of salads. We thought they were a little high a few years ago, but now they are up to $20. Considering the ingredients in virtually all the salads, these are a bit high. We’ve actually started going to a few other restaurants in the area and have been impressed.....Summer House & Bandera.

Superb service, innovative additions to the dishes like baked garbanzo beans which give them a crunch.
The dishes are presented on clever shaped plates. The rolls are delicious and fresh from the oven
They have specialty cocktails like pamogranate martinis!

Long wait for food. Food was cold. Forgot to bring appetizer. Ignored table for long periods of time. Food was bland. Horrible experience. Tustin Zov’s is superior in all facets of dining. Shame this place has the Zov’s name.
