    Everything was amazing except for where we were seated. They sat us up stairs and the vibe was not it . I would definitely come back but ask to not be seated upstairs unless you want something more private and intimate then upstairs is perfect .

    Decided to try Zuzu for my friend’s birthday and let’s just say I left disappointed. Let me start off saying that this place exudes beauty!! The ambience was amazing. I had the Sailor Moon cocktail which was delicious and my friend had the strawberry lemon drop; they charge $2 to put sugar around the rim btw. Our waitress was the worse. Instead of listening to what we had to say about our dislikes she kept trying to push dishes on us and asking why we don’t like certain items; like why does that matter. I have a food allergy and asked if the pad Thai could be made without the cilantro and she said no and went to recommend something that I already stated that I don’t like. When I finally settled on a dish she started minimizing the dish and tried to discourage me from getting, it turned out to be amazing. She really ruined our experience and we will never dine here again. I have never encountered a waitress who spoke so negatively about the food while trying to push the most expensive items on the menu; they charged 20% auto gratuity which I’m sure is her motivating factor to push those dishes. But had she been a better waitress we would have ordered an excessive amount of food that would have exceed the cost of the dishes she kept pushing. The patio is beautiful and I will stop by for a drink at the bar, but I won’t dine here again.

    Came in for dinner last night and let me tell you it was the best experience we have had in a long time. Everyone was extremely pleasant. We pulled up and noticed they had valet in front of the restaurant. What a great convenience. The host greeted us with a smile and walked us to our table. Randy our server did an amazing job explaining the menu as we have never been before. He recommended a couple amazing rolls and honey walnut shrimp to start. For entrees we had the 5 gold curry and the rock shrimp garlic noodles. The portion sizing was perfect! I can't say enough positive things about ZuZu. We will be back!

    We had a great time when we came to Zuzu. The drinks were amazing. Best craft cocktails we have had. The food was hot, fresh and coursed out perfectly by our server Randy. The price for the items were very reasonable. The manger touched the table which we haven't seen done visiting restaurants in a long time. The bonus is they even had valet on Woodward.

    Heard so many good things about Zuzu so we had to check it out. Came with a group of girls and had a blast. We sat in the bar area for happy hour. The menu was perfect for us ladies. We enjoyed our rolls (spicy tuna, cucumber avocado, and tempura shrimp) Our server Heather suggested we try the What We Do Is Secret. The cutest craft cocktail ever. Pink and bubbles. The service we received was nothing short of 5 stars. Everyone in the entire restaurant was amazing and super friendly. Management is doing a great job at this place. Can't wait to come back.

    Zuzu is a must visit! We celebrated my birthday here and let me tell you that we all had the time of our life. The host was so accommodating with our large group. We were offered inside our outside. Michigan weather you must take advantage of the beautiful days so we chose the patio. It was absolutely gorgeous out there. The large green booths with flowers and cherry blossom trees that light up were a beautiful touch. Our server was Randy. He never missed a step in service. He suggested the large format cocktail called Sei Less. The presentation on it was so adorable. It came out in a red dragon that smoked out of his mouth. For entrees Randy suggested more of a family style since we had a larger group. This was amazing as we tried different dishes that they offered. We had the pepper steak, garlic tofu and mushrooms, yaki noodle, and the seabass. All the dishes came out hot and extremley fresh. The portions were just enough for all of us. But let me tell you the Seabass was the best any of us have had. The manager touched the table and she thanked us for choosing Zuzu to celebrate my birthday. We ordered the celebration cake for dessert. The entire staff came over with sparklers, a huge light up cake and made sure I felt special. The whole patio even started clapping. What an experience!!! Great job zuzu staff.

    From the minute we walked in we were blown away. The restaurant reminds me of somewhere out of town. The host was very sweet when we arrived. She checked my rain coat and umbrella for me. We were seated in these beautiful red couches. It reminded us of a super VIP table. We came to celebrate our anniversary so it suited the occasion well. The food was simply amazing. Our server was Randy, and let me tell you he was great! His recommendations were phenomenal and perfect portion sizing. Look forward to coming back.

    Our wait staff was polite, and helpful, but lacked experience. The main course was brought out while we were still eating our appetizers. The main dishes were cold by the time we ate them. The wine glass had smudge marks on it. The service and food do not match the price charged for dishes. The food was mediocre

    The atmosphere was great ! We ordered sushi and apps with tomahawk steak for dinner. Our reservation was 5:30 and everything came out so fast we were done by 6:00. Everything basically came out at one time even the salad I ordered for dinner came out with the appetizers. I wish it was timed out better. There was a lot of things that were on the menu were not available. I definitely would recommend going for drinks and appetizers. They had a DJ on the patio, which was really nice

    What they don't tell you is that they'll charge you 10$ per bottle of water per person. I had a party of 6 and spent 60 dollars on water alone. Service was pretty meh. Our server wasn't the kindest and made some snarky remarks. He was pretty impatient with us ordering too and rushed us, saying that all orders had to be sent to the kitchen all at once. The food of course is pricey, but pretty good. Whether or not I'd recommend is debatable. Super expensive for skimpy portions of food. The best part of the experience was definitely the ambience. Lots of space to take cute photos. I think that if we had a better server, the experience would've been a lot better in all honesty.

My daughter loved it and can’t stop talking about how fun it was to cook at the table. Can’t wait to bring back the whole family and enjoy it with them!

    It was my first time and I thought I was really going to enjoy the experience. I asked for good seating and got sat next to the checkout counter. My waiter was all over the place assisting others as well as me. I heard so much about the place and to just get a blah experience was so crushed and my bills was $200!

    TL;DR: So the ambiance is decent and the location is great. The food was just ok, nothing to write home about. To be honest, I prefer my local cheap takeout restaurants in comparison. Here’s why: 1) I get what this place is trying to exude… the presence of bouncers (probably for the “Upstairs” bar/nightclub), the hosts at the entrance that give off the “I don’t care” and “you’re not on the list” club vibe (until you tell them you have a reservation)… they’re trying to seem “cool” and “exclusive”. This is reinforced by all the bottles of Armand de Brignac (Ace of Spades) on the walls and at the bar. They’re appealing to a certain demographic. I get it, just not my thing. It’s very Instagrammable, though, if that’s your thing! 2) When we walked in, aside from the aforementioned, they immediately brought us outside… it was cooling down out and we were not planning on that (it’s early May). When I made the OpenTable reservation, I wasn’t asked about a seating preference. I mean, yeah, outside is a “cool” vibe, but we didn’t want the cool temps. Plus it was somewhat windy. When we asked to be seated inside, they almost seemed genuinely inconvenienced by that request. They got us seated inside, but at THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE booth “thing” that I’ve ever sat upon in my life. They are the roundish booths off to the left when you walk in. Whoever thought those were a good idea should be fired. 3) As I said, the food was fine. And the drinks weren’t bad (not amazing but not bad). But the prices? WOW. SUPER pricey for what you get. But that’s the thing… the food is FINE. Not amazing. Definitely not spectacular! For those prices, it better blow me away. Which it didn’t. 4) Last thing… the tip. I didn’t know that the tip was already included in the bill, nor was it disclosed. That’s a bit unusual for small parties (3 people). There was also no immediate indication on the bill that it was already included, which seems somewhat fraudulent. So I tipped 20% on top of the bill.

    Wok station was broken so we were limited as to what we could order, food was overpriced for such small portions, and some of it was literally flavorless (the beef egg rolls in particular). Loved the ambiance, however going back would be a waste of money for sure for me. I need the food to actually be worth the price. Tao in Chicago and other locations definitely got it right with the food portions, flavor, and pricing... this place however, not so much.
