Zov's at its best. Excellent food, excellent service! Waiter was amazing. Can't recommend enough. We had a group of 6 celebrating 4 birthdays. GREAT time and GREAT place.
We come to Zov’s every year as one first stop of our annual Girls trip to Newport Coast. It never lets us down. Great food, great service and great ambiance
WE always enjoy Zov's and it is one of our favorite restaurants. The menu is varied and there is always something for every appetite. Service has always been very friendly and prompt.
Everything was great, except we asked for the dessert menu and were given the bill instead., I guess they were in a hurry for us to leave the table? But the Brussels sprouts are my favorite!
Very disappointed in the ambience and service at Zov's in Newport Coast. Tables were so close together there wasn't room for adults to sit with out knocking into the nearby table/chair. Service was very poor. I love the original Zov's but not this poor representation of hospitality. The only thing saving it from being a one star is that the food was still very tasty. We will not be back to this location.
I’m surprised at how bad the service was. We normally go to the Irvine location and have terrific service. Maybe because the owner frequents that location , not sure. Hostess was lovely but it was downhill after that.
I dream about Zov’s hummus and lentil soup. Casual dining at its bests.
Always great food. Service was odd. Once we got our food, we never saw our waiter again and we would have ordered more drinks.
Very pretty and comfortable restaurant. Staff is very nice. Food is good.
Overall when you look at the prices and the quality of food, they go together . Not at the top, but it's also not the highest priced restaurant either.
First time at Zov's. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Service was attentive and quick. Several staff introduced themselves and let us know they were happy to have us and will be pleased to assist us. Drinks were quick, although expensive. We did not order appetizers, however, our greek salads came out quickly. Nice and fresh! Rolls were warm. I ordered Spicy Spaghetti and Giant Meatball, my wife order the Pappardelle with Short Ribs. Both were well prepared and hot. Other than the obnoxious gentleman next to us, this is a delightful restaurant for dinner.
We had one issue occur we had never run into in all our years of travel and dining. After our delightful server, Alejandro, cleared the table and packaged up my wife's leftover, he placed teaspoons down for both of us, saying he had something for us, and left. Now, we had discussed asking for a dessert menu, but had not asked for it. He came back with a dessert, telling us we were a most pleasant couple, and this was from him to us, with a big smile. We were quite surprised, and thanked him. It was a wonderful warm flourless chocolate torte with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. Excellent! What was more of a surprise was that it was on the bill!!!! Most unexpected, considering his personal delivery of the dessert. Now, we weren't going to argue over a $9 dessert after a wonderful meal with excellent service, so we didn't say anything, however, we thought it strange. We paid the bill, shaking our heads as the door was held open for us as we left.
Service was terrible. I had to jump out of my seat and flag him down in order to place our order and order more.
My dad, Phil McCormick takes us there whenever anyone from the family visits. He and we love it! He is turning 90 this year and it is the only restaurant he will eat at. It’s a good thing it is so delicious and the service is so outstanding!
Delicious food. Even my vegan daughter was delightfully satisfied.
Always a nice time at Zov's Newport. Warm surroundings, good cuisine and typically good service.
Absolutely loved it! Fabulous menu...creative Chef....classy service...friendly and attentive wait staff. I enjoyed simple green salad followed by the pan seared sea bass. OMG! The presentation (the stack up of the jasmine rice, shaved brussel sprouts, spinach, and the lemon caper sauce) along with the flavors of the dish were out of this world!
It’s never disappointing to eat here.
We are never disappointed when dining here. Took our friends from out of town and they loved too.
A great place to meet friends for an always delicious meal.
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!
The Food was GREAT and our waiter was Fabulous!! A wonderful knowledgable Italian man
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.
Salmon was excellent x2 dishes. Great service
Great service, great food
food was fair and prices high. service was poor.Patio was over half empty and waitress kept rushing us.
Will definitely be back
Not a gourmet restaurant. Had the chicken sandwich was dry without much flavor. Someone else had salmon salad salmon not made to order tasted like it sat around all day. Others had salad they forgot the chicken.
We frequent Zov's on a regular basis. Food is always excellent and service personal and professional. Love it!
Their food and services were fantastic. I would like to come back again.
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!
Our server Macon was awesome👍
Our waitress was extremely kind. Took extra time to make us feel welcome
Casual relaxed ambiance. Early dinner on Saturday.
Definitely repeatable. Enjoyed the sea bass, Short rib pappardelle and the meatloaf.
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.
Always love Zov’s. A favorite!
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.
