They charge bottle water 8 times to the market price, which was too much. Service was good, decoration also very morden.

We watched countless other couples just turn up and be showed their table, our table guests were apparently eating desert for a good 1hr 45mins! Subsequent food was incredible and the waitress out of this world, such a shame the Front of House in NYC was a total shambles. Get a grip NYC, this is NOT what Zuma is about.

Zuma used to be a restaurant where I would bring my guests and partners for excellent food and service. Last night the service was so appalling that we did not get to taste the food. Booked the table in advance, on the day after 25 minutes of waiting in an overcrowded upstairs bar and still no table, had to leave as the only option offered was to wait even longer. If you have a meeting or an event, cross this restaurant off your list as totally unreliable.

I really hope they return to their previous quality. My wife and I are fans of the restaurant group and have dined about five times at Shōtō in DC since they opened in February, which is in fact exceptional, and it has the same menu for the most part as Zuma NYC. Please re-up your game, Zuma NYC!!

We arrived on time, and we were promised the next table available at the lounge. They then changed the reservation time in their booking system and OpenTable by 45 minutes to pretend we had the wrong time . We verified our email confirmation, confronted them and they realized their mistake Oh btw, thanks for the free edamame, it really made us feel better after the heated security person threaten to throw us out, not to serve us and call the police. I am still shocked to have received threats on the place We were supposed to enjoy.

App plates were not cleared and were left on table after placing entree dishes. Empty glasses were not removed and new drinks were brought had to ask the waiter to buss the table for 20 minutes waited. Water was never refilled had to ask multiple times. Real bad experience especially with the high expectations we had

El servicio todo servido a destiempo y en una mesa que no cabían para 3 personas los elementos del servicio. Quizás en la cena sea más agradable y tranquilo con otro público que al mediodía.

The main dining area was beautiful I ordered the Waygu steak which was wonderful; very tender & flavorful. My friend ordered the spicy beef tenderloin which he loved. We had a side of asparagus that was seasoned & cooked veryy well. Overall, it was an amazing experience & would def return.

The food was of the highest quality, especially the lobster that was so soft it broke with chopsticks! So good. The only thing i was disappointed with was the fact we had flown in from the UK to celebrate a big birthday and despite mentioning that on my booking that wasn’t mentioned, i would have liked a birthday drink or desert sent over as a special touch.

Lots of space between tables (instead of normal NYC crammed). Food quality very good and tasty. One of the best seaweed salads that I’ve ever had. Fried calamari was also great. Service was very efficient. Wait staff were great! Very friendly, helpful and on top of their game. Dishes came out of the kitchen very promptly. My one gripe is that it was extremely over priced even by NYC standards. $240 before tip for: two non-alcoholic drinks; one glass midgrade champagne; 2 calamari appetizers; 1 seaweed salad; 1 California roll; 1 shrimp tempura roll; and 1 platter of 9 pieces of chef’s choice nigiri. The nigiri was not anything unusual or exotic that you can’t get at any other sushi place and was alone $68. (A similar dish in New Haven costs about $23, so I would have expected to pay $35 ish in NYC). So everything was great except the price.

It takes 30 min for someone to show up at the table but then later, there are 5 people hovering and trying to take plate from you before you are even done eating. It felt like a full blown harassment. The only redeeming quality was desert.

We saw tables available but still they refused to sit us and asked for to wait on a waitlist to be seated on a table… what is the use of the reservation then?
