If you go by other reviews, you might think that Zengo has really gone down hill in the last year, or since changing things up a bit. I would argue that this is not the case. We visited Zengo previously about 15 months ago and then last Friday. I was not terribly impressed with our earlier visit. This time, however,... More

For many, many years, Zengo has been our favorite restaurant in Denver. THE place for special celebrations and to entertain out of town guests. Our last visit there was a shock. The staff was not welcoming and indifferent to our concerns. The music was so loud and noisy, my husband said he felt like someone was banging a pot next... More

I struggled on what to rate this restaurant. The food wasn't bad and the service was great. But man...that price tag! I had brunch here this past weekend with 5 ladies from a business startup we're all involved in. The atmosphere was welcoming and we stayed nearly two hours without pressure from the server to turn the table over. Perhaps... More

My husband and I have been dining at Zengo for years, we actually met there ~13 years ago. For my birthday this year, we invited my in laws and our party of five visited for brunch on a Sunday. The usually fantastic brunch didn't go well so after, I reached out to the corporate office with my feedback and disappointment... More

My son, two friends and I went there after a trip to the Aquarium. I was a bit hesitant as I'm not adventurous as far as food. But, what a wonderful surprise. The restaurant is beautiful and their bottomless brunch was fabulous. We ordered little bits of everything to see what we liked and we loved it all. The food... More

Returned after a 2-year hiatus to find new décor. When Zengo first opened, the fusion scene was in its heyday. Combining Japanese and Mexican food was truly a novel experience. Crab empanadas, citrusy salmon poke, bulgogi kimchi street tacos... all are still really great flavor concepts complimented by inventive cocktails. But the "wow" factor that Zengo had in its early...

It was two of our birthdays. We got there in time and had to wait for about ten minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. I ended up calling the restaurant (yes from my table) to ask for service. Someone came, apologized and offered a free round of drinks and appetizer. We got our food and had to wait for about... More

It was our first visit to Zengo. Used a Groupon and immediately felt discriminated against for doing so. Samantha, our server, brought us tea for two with enough hot water for one. It wasn't busy. We were early and other than waiting on us she was folding napkins. Food was great. Had the chili and garlic edamame, tuna poke, dragon... More

My wife began dining at this location around 10 yrs ago. We enjoyed the mix of cultures that connected taste buds. Our visits were not only the food but the wait staff that made each visit special. Late summer 2016, it was announced that there would be a redo to the dining room as well as the menu. We waited... More

Now understand I am not complaining about the food. The complaint on this review is about the service. It was not rude in any way but it was extremely slow. It took 20 plus minutes to get what was our appetizer roll to the table and it came with our dinner. But our entire dinner didn't arrive. My wife's vegetable... More
