Both days, i snagged outdoor seating at breakfast, what a treat. Nice breakfast, nicely served. A couple of evenings, we had drinks and bar snacks from their very creative menu and all enjoyed

We go there every year when we stay in Scottsdale. I simply adore this place. We went for happy hour this time and had another wonderful experience. Our server, Kim was delightful. We sampled the happy hour menu ~ everything was delish. Highly recommend the cheese assortment & veggie/chip tray. I always beg for their truffle fries & chef has... More

We had time to kill before leaving for the airport on our last day so I wanted to make the most of it. I thought a really nice upscale brunch would be a good way to end the trip on a high note. I had read a lot of good things about this place and their brunch in particular so... More

All of the meals eaten in ZuZu's were very good and the service was exceptional. The restaurant is casual yet the food is fairly sophisticated.

The best way to describe Zuzu is “eh”. I can’t put my finger on what exactly made the experience so blah- it was a combination of the lethargic ambience, mediocre food and average drinks. That being said, there was also nothing terrible, thus the three stars (I probably would have given 3.5 stars if had the opportunity). I dined here... More

Stopped in for dessert and coffee at Zuzu. Wanted to try the new creations of Pastry Chef Audrey. It was above and beyond what was expected. She has knocked it out of the park. Ordered the chocolate mousse and the cheesecake and banana caramel bavarian!!!

With an early flight into PHX (8am on a Sunday), I knew my crew needed a good breakfast before heading off to Spring Training baseball. Made a reservation ahead of time. We had a gorgeous booth reserved in the ZuZu's mid-century modern dining room. The food was AMAZING! Coffee hot and strong. Service friendly and attentive. Fun people watching.

Honestly, ZuZu in NOTHING special. We were in between lunch and dinner and ordered off the lounge menu, which had decent choices. The chicken quesadilla was TERRIBLE, especially for AZ!! The meat was dark and unsavory and something in it was off. The ZuZu burger was average and the bacon was burnt. The poach shrimp were large, firm, decent. The... More

While we only ever got breakfast here the morning that we left, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was it a great, bright spot but the staff was excellent. I got the stuffed french toast and my fiancé got the breakfast burrito and we both devoured it. Prices are on the slightly above average side.
