What I miss most about city living was access to many good eateries in the neighborhood. Never had to go far for excellent taste and quality food. Well right here in Lake Barrington is ZaZa's, so no need to settle for anything less than excellent....More

Four of us went and each ordered different entrees. We were all happy with the food. There is an excellent whitefish entree and a great risotto "manzo". The risotto has mushrooms and steak - way good. We shared fried calamari and a Caprese salad -...More

Excellent food and service. Went on a Saturday night expecting advertised music and they didn't have any. The establishment sent over a nice dessert tray for the 2 birthdays we were celebrating.

Had lunch here today. It is not crowded for lunch, but I would make a recommendation for dinner. The ZAZA salad is a favorite of ours. The eggplant is nicely done and NOT over dressed.

Not quite 4 stars. It was an evening of hits and misses, a bit disappointing. The ambiance of the restaurant is great. Dark and cozy on a cold winter's night. Started with cocktails. My martini was not the best. Not icy cold but in a...More

I missed going here for years due to lack of awareness and then confidence in location and value for money. My huge loss!! The food here is excellent and the place is way cozier and cuter than you would ever expect from the outside. The...More
