Stopped in to just take a look at the hotel because my husband and I like mid-century modern architecture and design and our group ended up staying for dinner at ZuZu. Very happy with the food selection - we had vegetarians in our group - and everyone enjoyed their meals. Specialty drink selection was okay, I know it was geared... More

I always love coming here to eat. Comfort, great food, good service....what more could you ask for? I could see myself giving this 5 stars, but I guess it is really a 4 star kind of place which means: you can eat here anytime, regardless of what you are wearing, time of day, etc. That makes it better. Actually, as... More

We loved the hotel's mid-century modern decor -- it's perfectly done, from the lounge to the restrooms. Lovely patio areas, don't miss the pretty one in front with a fountain, by the fireplace. Great cocktails at the bar. This was a great meeting spot for our food tour.

I had the pleasure of having lunch with a dear friend. Both of us opted for the Zuzu burger. A great choice. The beef is top choice, and the burger comes with blue cheese and bacon. We both selected fries as a side. These were mediocre, unfortunately. I had an ice tea, which came with a very thoughtful touch: a... More

We ate here for lunch and the roasted tomato and goat cheese casserole appetizer was delicious! It comes with a side of crusty, warm, delicious bread for dipping. So good! Highly recommend

The setting was beautiful and unique! The staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome and at home. The food was great i ordered the scallops which was very balanced in its flavors, would definitely recommend.

Everything about this was good, not necessarily great! We received good service, good food and had a good experience. Everything else at the hotel was AMAZING. We sat outside on the patio since the weather was perfection! Might have been a better experience inside.

Go for the brunch, stay for the Bloody Mary bar! I had the California Grilled Cheese - gruyere mix on sourdough plus sautéed onions and avocado. Very good. My tablemates were all happy with their choices as well. A pleasant and attentive waitress. And that Bloody Mary bar - wow. Amazing garnishes including thick delicious bacon. A treat, worth a...

Four of us went there for the recent Restaurant Week fixed price dinner. We had high expectations as the restaurant has an excellent reputation and usually an establishment will use Restaurant Week to highlight their cooking. Unfortunately, this did not measure up. The service was poor from the beginning as we had to constantly ask a passing server for assistance... More
