Service seemed stressed, talking about the menu items very fast. Not an intimate experience for us.
Ambiance does not provide a special setting, rather cold and generic
Food was excellent and witty. Loved every bite.

Excellent food, good service but not great. They bring the food as each plate becomes ready. An order of a side dish of grilled asparagus came ten minutes after we had finished everything else. I prefer to eat my main dish along with my side dishes at the same time. I would recommend it for a one time experience, but I doubt I'll go back.

Been there a number of times over the years and while I’ve always enjoyed it. It has not become the value it used to be. The drinks were good, but small for the price. Food was very good, but not as outstanding as it used to be. Service was also very good, but not superior. The parking was very disappointing as far as price, but maybe I’m out of touch.

The chopsticks sets on the table were greasy. When I tried to wipe them, the paint , brown stains came off. So I asked for forks and disposable chopsticks. But the feel of it was not clean and not very pleasant.

Impressive presentation of high quality food. Impeccable service. Went out of his wife to recreate a smoked whiskey cocktail that is long off the menu.

Subtle but joyous presentation of the dessert platter to celebrate a birthday

The hosts are terrible. They treated us with arrogance and disdain. Also, when we finished the meal and were waiting for the check they rushed us out, basically kicked us out to seat another party. Honestly it does not matter how good the food is, your client experience is terrible. Will not be coming back

I never give reviews but the fact that 2 minutes after paying the bill. $675 for 3 people, we were asked to leave while still had wine in glasses. Might have been rudest thing I’ve experienced in any restaurant and I am a regular at Zuma. Most likely won’t be going back.

Great experience! Tasting menu is unique and outstanding! Specialty Cocktails were great. Cold Saki selection that Dan our waiter chose was delish! Entire wait staff was welcoming and informative about what they were serving us off the tasting menu. Dan definitely set the tone for a great evening. One of the best meals and nicest experiences we've had anywhere in the world.
