Good dinner. Food came out too fast even though I asked the server to slow it down. At one point we had 8 dishes on the table for dinner for 5. Was not much room to put our drinks down!
Excellent all around!
Very neat place but the food underwhelming in my opinion
You just can’t beat the combination of beautiful, modern decor, great food, attentive service and for lunch, decent value. I will be back for sure
Fantastico lugar, experiencia que repito en cada visita a NY; en esta ocasión más tranquilo de lo habitual por ser domingo. Un error en algun eslabon de la cadena de comanda nos dejó un buen rato sin el plato principal, no obstante lo cual la atención y amabilidad del servicio hizo que no se le diera más valor que una simple incidencia... Gran experiencia que volveré a repetir!
Great restaurant great vibe great service and great food
Zuma is overall a great place but the service was off this time. The food came all at once and not spaced out. The drinks when we ordered two they brought one and we waited a long time for the second. Definitely a drop in service levels
The food is really amazing and the special plates wont regret trying them
Zuma has it all... delicious food, an attentive wait staff and a wonderfully welcoming ambiance. It’s great for a date night or a quiet dinner with friends. Try it!
Wonderful New Year Eve! Certainly recommend. Very well organized, good food, music, atmosphere. Couldn’t be better.
Wonderfull: service, place and food!!! And the company
Absolutely an experience you can't miss.
One of our favourite restaurants without a doubt.
Food was nice, the guy whi
I spend my Christmas day at zuma , and o regret it 😊👌🏻
Das Essen war sehr lecker. Super service, sehr freundlich. Mussten auch fast gar nicht warten.
Very good overall
My second time here and it’s still good. Good service, great food, nice crowd. I do recommend this place, must visit.
Waited about 20 minutes past our reservation time while others walked in and seemed to be seated immediately. Several items were brought to our table in error and one thing was misheard by the server resulting in the wrong drink brought to us.
Food was unique and delicious
Outstanding. We had the tasting menu and it was one of the best meals that I’ve had in NYC in a while, and that’s saying a lot.
Très bel endroit et très bonne table.
Out as a client and the lack of clarity on drink prices was uncomfortable. Otherwise beautiful place with even more beautiful tasting food.
Although restaurant was empty, they refused to serve me the lunch tasting menu as they require a minimum of 2 people simply because of space needed for the dishes.
Great customer service. Dishes were hit or miss. Some were excellent, others were average. Expensive given the quality of the food. Cool vibe but very loud.
Beautiful venue. Lovely lunch place.
Awesome food and service. My favorite restaurant.
Great food as always. Service was lacking a tad.
The manager was extremely rude when we complained that no one warned us we would be sitting upstairs and would only be able to order off of the bar menu.
It was a good experience overall. At the beginning of the meal I told the server I had an allergy to truffles. We ordered the upgraded tasting menu. The first course came with truffles! I pointed it out to the runner who apologized. Then the second course came with truffles on it!! The rest of the meal was without incident. Love the dessert platter every time!!
Always great ambience and delicious food!
Terrible seating situation - they direct you over to the bar and then a slew of confused hostesses come by and ask one by one what your name is - this goes on for 30 minutes past your reservation time. Then when you go ask the head “hostess” she says “yea we are still setting the table” Oh ok. Then when you sit down the server finally comes over after another 15 minutes and says “any questions?” with no further greeting. No, and I’m great! Thanks for asking. We have had plenty of time to study the menu. The meal was sub- par Japanese at best and I could have been happier going to a hole in the wall sushi joint. Maybe that’s because I wasn’t given any recommendations or direction whatsoever and couldn’t dare bother the staff.
Excellent food and attentive service but a bit pricey.
As usual- excellent food, impeccable service but very noisy.
food is very good but the check in with hostess/getting seated is very poorly run
Great experience, great ambiance and great food. 10/10
Usually is great. Last night the service and food were sub par. For $500 for 2 people I expected much better. The Managment acknowledged the poor situation, but no effort was made to rectify the situation. In fact, after waiting up to 45 minutes for each course the rushed us out!
We wanted to enjoy great food and good ambience, but got far from it. From the moment we sat down, people stressed getting food to us. We started with a drink and asked for some edamame. They arrived fast, so far so good. But while we were talking, suddenly 3 courses came to our table (we ordered the omakase). We were surprised, special when they tried to push 2 more courses to our table. We had to call for the lead there to slow down, but even then they stressed through the evening. Luckily had had great party (my wife) with me, because this was below average. Also, they serve so much food it feels like a waste. If we wanted fast food, we would have gone somewhere else. What a disappointing experience :(
