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.

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.

We love Zov's Newport Coast and drive a little further (from Coto de Caza) for the location and great staff.
Your atmosphere is perfect- attentive staff without being invasive, excellent food (brussels sprouts as a starter- yes, please!) and great seating inside or out on the patio.
My husband and I come here together, we bring friends and our grown kids and I have come on
weeknights with a book group. Every visit has been comfortable, tasty and enjoyable. Thanks, Zov's

Took my friend to Zov’s for a birthday lunch. Greeted warmly at the door and seated in a comfortable booth. The food was excellent: cauliflower app, Greek salad and a perfectly cooked salmon dish. It was healthy food & well prepared. They brought a lovely complimentary dessert. Each dish was plated beautifully. Our waiter was delightful. First visit & not the last.
