I've been several times there and have tried about half of the pretty small menu. They don't change it, but they don't have to. Everything is amazing. The atmosphere is very unique and exactly my taste as well. I highly recommend this restaurant.
This is our favorite place to eat out especially if we are entertaining guests. We like to sit out on the balcony. I love their daily fresh fish choices. They also have great signature drinks.
If you go, get the burgers! Wowza. That meat is perfection. And the poutine is killer. Really cool atmosphere. Menu is shifty, so ignore what's online - cocktails included. Don't get your heart set on a Mint Julep because when you go, it may not be an option. Maybe there's a way to check their social media for updates? Anyhow, our waitress and hostesses were super friendly and accommodating. Very clean. Easy going vibes. Everyone in the restaurant seemed comfortable, enjoying themselves. We'll definitely go back. Anytime we want burgers, Zazu's will come to mind.
Fantastic meal and service!
My wife and I have been to Zazu many times for lunch. This was our second trip for dinner. The menu is rather small, but everything we've tried is downright delicious. The chef's expertise is self-evident. Every presentation is delightful and yummy. The Bibb Lettuce salad is quite large, with what seems to be an entire head of farm fresh lettuce garnished with lots of bleu cheese and bacon bits. The Pan Seared Scallops were perfectly seared and extraordinarly tasty. The Wood Grilled Bistro Steak was cooked exactly as requested and tasted as good as it looked. It's a long drive for us, but we plan to return often.
Always good food and great service. Highly recommended.
Always consistently good, can’t go wrong with anything on the menu
Great service, great food, great ambience. My new favorite.
Fabulous lunch. Fish tacos were divine. Bread pudding exceptional.
Really enjoyed everything about our visit. The location was great, easy to find and get to and in an area of town that was safe to walk from the nearest parking lot. We were seated immediately upon arrival and the food service was terrific. All the food was delicious, we sampled each person's meal and although we finally decided the fish or scallops were tied for best dish, the short ribs were not far behind. Desserts we're also great. Best first visit I have had in a long time, and will certainly be putting Zazu in the rotation for more frequent visits.
Great restaurant! Really enjoyed the appetizers and dinner. The food was top-notch and worthy of any foodie. Service was attentive and we will send friends there anytime.
Outstanding! Highly recommend the raw oysters, the pan seared scallops and bread pudding for dessert. Service was top notch. Will definitely come back next time I'm in town!
The food, atmosphere and especially the customer service was outstanding.
We came with a large party for Mother's Day. The food was good and the server was great. Our biggest concern was that the area we were seated (the small platform between the first and second floor), there was a huge gap between the floor and the exterior window. We had small kids with us that could have easily fallen through. I don't know how this is not a code violation. Just make sure that you specify that you have small kids and do not need to sit near the front window.
Another small issue is that it did not have many options for low-carb, which made it hard for some of our guests to find something that they liked and could eat.
Great service by Robert and the rest of the staff. We loved being seated on the balcony. Made the dinner extra special. All of the food was delicious as usual. This is our go-to place when entertaining friends and family.
Everyone in our party of 9 LOVED their meal! One person said the salmon was the best she had ever had at any restaurant. Our waiter was incredible!
Fun location...good food and great service
Amazing food and service as always. Bread pudding is a must for dessert!
Great spot upstairs and outside
Service was excellent and so was the food. Everyone at table enjoyed their meals.
Zazu was great! We went with our family- mom, dad and three under 10. We all think they have the best burger in the Auburn/Opelika area. The service was really great too. We had a male server that was so good even my two oldest kids talked about how nice he was!
The meal was more expensive than most places around but I guess you get what you pay for! I will definitely go again.
Great food, loved the decor and location. One of Auburn Opelika’s best!
We dined at Zazu on April 27, 2019. We enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very lively. We are so glad we accidentally found this restaurant! We would recommend Zazu highly!
Zazu's is always a favorite! The food is amazing, the cocktails are amazing and we always see so many friends!
My wife chose Zazu as her birthday wish and she totally enjoyed herself. Both our meals were spot on and delicious. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant. We had a wonderful experience.
Zazu Gastropub was a perfect place for our family's Easter lunch. There was something on the menu for everyone...brunch items, burgers, entrees...and it was all delicious! The spring roll appetizer was phenomenal...I wish I had just gotten that by myself!
Visiting from out of town for Easter Sunday. Made reservation for 10:45 and wondered why the restaurant was not yet busy. Discovered no bar service on Sundays until after noon in Opelika. Menu had many scrumptious sounding dishes and reasonably priced. Pancakes are dinner plate size and a bit gummy in the center. Eggs Benedict with crabmeat was tasty. Overall good but nothing spectacular. A mimosa would have been nice. Will try again.
We were in Auburn to visit family and celebrate our daughter’s COSAM award at Auburn. We had a lovely dinner at Zazu. Our server, Caitlin was wonderful, so pleasant and helpful. Dinner was delicious!
Great food, great service, neat atmosphere, good value!
Making a reservation on line was so simple and convenient, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was very pleasant, attentive, and quick! The food, as always, was delicious. Zazu Gastropub is my favorite place to share a meal or a drink with friends and family.
I cannot believe we haven't come to Zazu before!! We absolutely loved our food - incredible appetizers, delicious entrees, and amazing desserts. We couldn't decide on one dessert and ended up ordering both the blueberry cobbler and the bread pudding - both incredible!! I highly recommend for a date night or celebration dinner.
Atmosphere is great. The menu has a nice variety and the service was good.
I often take potential employees to Zazu for dinner. Our experience on April 4th was wonderful as usual. There were great drink and appetizer selections. Our table ordered both and they arrived quickly. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their entrees. Of course, we had bread pudding to finish! Thanks Zazu!
Nice dinner shared with another couple.
Found this gem while searching for best bread pudding while eating dinner at a different restaurant. We ordered drinks and dessert — great service and ambiance. Had such a great time that we will go back for dinner the next time we are in Opelika.
Went for my boyfriend’s birthday and was not disappointed! Our server Brooke was very sweet and attentive. All of the food was delicious, it was basically inhaled that’s how good it was.
If you get a desert, definitely try the bread pudding! It took a little extra time for them to make it for us, but it was absolutely worth it.
Overall, great food, great service, and a lovely atmosphere!
We enjoyed a wonderful birthday celebration! Everything was perfect, and we’ll definitely recommend and return!
The food was excellent!! Chicken and waffles, Opelika Hot Brown, and hush puppies were well preparing and filling. Definitely recommend the brunch!!
Great food and very nice atmosphere! Service was also wonderful!!!
