We loved the food, it always delivers and our son loves everything even though he is only 7 but will tuck into tuna tartare, black cod, tempura prawns, we all loved the dishes. The ambience is festive which is also great, the only thing we would say that the service was tad rushed but understandable given the restrictions. We cannot wait to go back.
I am so disappointed with our experience at Zuma! The service was TERRIBLE. I have sent an email explaining our experience and am yet to recieve a response
Zuma embodies the meaning of exceptional dining. Three days later, I vividly recall the incredible meal that I enjoyed. I fear that the sushi has changed me forever -- everything else will appear subpar. Encourage someone in your party to order the cod entree. It is worth every savory bite. The wine list is not to be overlooked. The variety complements each dish. I look forward to my next visit! Well done.
Amazing! Felt like we were back in pre covid times. Sushi was exceptional as was the service.
They changed the menu to q very small menu, not as good as it use to be. Also we had 4 different servers the whole time we were there, not good!

Food was good but was seated next to the elevator that was sending out a very annoying buzzing noise every time it was used.
Entrees came at different times, about 10-15 minutes after my date’s dinner came.
Excellent service. Beautiful. Food was amazing. The steak melts in your mouth.
Took a friend out for a last supper. It was amazing food and service. P
I’ve been to several other Zuma’s and sadly nyc doesn’t compare. Food is very low quality. Our service when we were there was so poor. We called to say we are running a couple of minutes late and lady said she will note of it but can only hold table for 15 mins. We actually got there on time, got seated but waited at least 30 mins to get any attention. We have to wave at another waitress to get our order in. Every dish that came out was missing something and had to ask for something like soy sauce, wasabi, spoon etc. This was my 2nd time at this location, the 1st time was a fail as well and thought to give it a 2nd chance, but unfortunately didn’t redeem itself.
Excellent experience, highly recommend
Love this restaurant!
Zuma changed a lot . It was my last visit . Food was ok , nothing special , service was ok , not the place for Friday night .
One of our favorite restaurants in NY! Amazing food (lobster, steak & Chilean Seabass were phenomenal) and best lychee martinis I’ve ever had...so much better than its competitor Nobu...it’s pricey but worth it!
Poor service so so food. Not like it used to be pre-pandemic
Amazing! Food and service was outstanding as always
I came here to celebrate my birthday with a friend. Due to Covid the restaurant closes at 10. Our reservations were for 8:30pm. As soon as we were seated, we were told that the kitchen was closing in ten minutes. Everything else was great. The food, drinks and service were good, but we did feel very rushed. I feel like I have to go again to really get the full experience.
Wow it was super amazing first time ever having dinner at this place super sad it was the last day to dine in for us cause of COVID hope they open soon can’t wait to go back!!!
I’ve been coming to zuma for 3 years now and everytime im met with every expectation I have and they exceed it.
Fantastic food as always, the fish in NYC and the vibe is good, background music was awesome.
Wonderful experience as always at Zuma. Great food, better drinks, wonderful team.
good food, not their fault but covid hinders the usual liveliness
This use to be one of my favorite places. I couldn’t wait to dine here after they reopened. I craved this place during quarantine and was so disappointing. My Boyfriend and I come here regularly and miss the way things were. Maybe it’s due to the fact that they just reopened and need to get back into the groove of things but the ambiance is off as well the food came out late and not in order. I hope they really get it together because I love it there. The waiter did the best he could with the kitchen being backed up.
Just perfect.....the service, food and experience was captivating
It was unusually slow because we ate while the corona fears were rising. Food was great however. Highly recommend the black cod. Will come back.
Went there for my husbands birthday, service was great can’t fault that anywhere.
Food was SO mediocre? Don’t know if they’re having issues with the supply of their food cos the beef steak we had didn’t taste fresh at all, sushi was below par, black miso cod was ok- definately better at Nobu IMO.
Overall totally overpriced and not really worth it. Sorry.
Delicious. Portions are not big. A bit expensive. Went for a special occasion. Loved it.
Outstanding Japanese restaurant- my .3rd time there, never disappoints!
Always super. Chefs choice is the way to go. Service was super friendly and prompt.
One of the best Japanese restaurant In NY. Great service and great food. Coming back again.
Beautiful space a cross between going to Las Vegas and Miami
Lots of beautiful people and families
Great food and wonderful ambiance. I live this place on a Tuesday after work or Thursday / Friday as part of a night out.
Food was outstanding. Enjoyed several dishes, including the chicken wings, chilean seabass with green chili and ginger and a roll with several types of fish (cannot remember the name). Each one was delicious. Japanese old fashioned was a great cocktail. Attractive ambiance. Only issue was service was slow at times. Waiter was friendly, but seemed to disappear. Excellent recommendations, though.
Nice place. Food was delicious.
The restaurant is amazing. The food almost perfect. It’s a splash of taste. However in the desert we found a hair on the plate, something very embarrassing and not expect in a Restautant like this.
Service and food is outstanding there always have a great time at this restaurant. Highly recommend Zuma for all occasion dining.
Very good food and nice ambiance, the chilliean seabass and the beef were stunning
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we both loved it. They catered amazingly to my allergy and we accommodating to all my requests both before the date of reservation and on the night of. We are definitely going back.
Delicious food, beautiful setting, great service! We had a wonderful time.
very creative food, not inexpensive. the decor is nice but the service can be a bit slow
