We ordered several dishes between the five of us. They were all tasty. They were also served quickly by a number of runners who were totally on the ball. Our server, however, though pleasant enough, was quite literally the least competent server we have had...More

I was looking for a restaurant as a meeting/eating place before a Caps game. Zengo was just up the street. We chose an assortment of appetizers and cocktails. I can't remember my drink (had a few), but it had strawberry puree. It was amazing. My...More

The dining room at Zengo is wide and airy, with lots of space between tables so that you can talk and relax -- it's a place that really invites you to linger. It's too bad, then, that the food, while perfectly fine, is pretty uninspired....More

Had an absolutely fantastic dinner at Zengo. My husband and I shared slow cooked pork ribs and Zengo fried rice. There was more than enough and no room for dessert. The menu is overwhelming with the number of interesting choices. Definitely worth a few visits...More

Went there for dinner last night and had a great time. The food was very flavorful and tasty though definitely overpriced for the portions. Even though there were several issues with our order and the timing of our service, the manager Giorgio took care of...More

We went there last Friday night for dinner. It was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. The place was loud. Very well attended. Menu was very interesting, a combination of sushi and South American food. We ordered a number of appetizers to share...More
