Nice restaurant - has a patio feel to it but they have heaters when it is cold. it was fairly full, but not noisy which made it comfortable to eat and talk. The menu has a good variety and we enjoyed our entrees. The best part for me was the dessert. Creme Brulee is my fav and theirs is impeccable.... More

This place is a good option for a happy hour time. There are good prices for wines and the food is good, although I think we have better options in town, I would come back. Ask to hostess to stay in the patio.

Zov's knows how to deliver on excellent, fresh food in a relaxing setting. Enjoy this location for casual dining (bakery side) or more upscale business lunches, romantic dinners. Lamb burger, lebneh, any of the salads or sandwiches are a good choice. Nice for breakfast, too. $5 all you can drink champagne on weekends. Various other locations around Orange County...all great... More

Food was flavorful with creative choices, service attentive, and prices were very high. $3.95 is just too much for iced tea!

I have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner---the last two times for lunch. What I like about this place is the fact that they take what one would consider a normal dish and then just move it to a higher level of taste. Not overtly fancy, but things are just a little better. This last visit I had their... More

The quality of Zovs is great, but the (to go) price for lentil soup and a salad (Greek) is about $18. Seems high to me for the portion size.

The bakery side of Zov's is perfect for breakfast or lunch, while the dinner side is an excellent choice for dining in the evening. It is our go-to place for a quick dinner prior to the theater. The service is fast and efficient. When they say they'll get you on the road within an hour, they mean it. And the... More
