    For the hype and price this place is just ok. I had the miso sea bass. The fish was cooked well but lacked flavor and did have a bit of a fishy taste. The skinny margarita was too sour. The layout is long and narrow and it’s awkward to walk through. Most of the guests are too cool to be courteous and barrow right at you forcing you to step out of the way. I imagine fights breaking out when two really cool people bump into each other because neither refuse to move.

    The ambiance was impressive, the adherence to the theme was appreciated and unique. Service was prompt but also unique as the person who took out order was different than who brought out our food was different than who asked us how everything was tasting ect... I found the food to be was very tasty and I liked the smaller menu. We each tried a beverage, 1 appetizer, 2 rolls of sushi and shared an entree. After dinner we went upstairs for music and a coctail. The feedback that I would offer someone asking me about it would be: fancy interior, tasty food, loud vibe and very expensive for the portions offered. NB, an autogratuity of 20% is added to your bill. Great to see such a unique concept in downtown Detriot but not anticipating a return anytime soon.

    I asked the waiter for a glass of a house cab red wine. Brought me a 59$ glass of wine. After that I’ll never go back and will not recommend it. Sushi was decent but that’s so shady

    Let me state I have been to numerous nice restaurants. This is cute- excellent decor, a great menu, great food and drinks. We went during happy hour and we inquired about the HH menu. Our waiter was snotty about it and said he had NO idea bc they do not have a HH menu in the dining room- ok strike one we went early to try the HH menu- no big deal we are still going to order food. We had to put the entire order in at once and we were totally oversold on our food. He should have indicated we were ordering way too much, instead he said these are small portions, to be shared, they were huge portions and we had a table full of food, then he was pushing for us to order more and order entrees. I was really turned off by that. Usually servers try to assist customers into not making that mistake, but I could tell here all the server- JAKE, cared about was his 20% gratuity, which he added onto the bill. Not that I care bc good service gets 20-30%, but this all will make me never return and I will not recommend this place ever based upon being oversold and the tip added to a party of 3- and he did not indicate he added the gratuity. Cute place, nice concept, but NO thank you.

    Server wasn’t attentive nor helpful. Walked away while asking questions about menu. Also tables by the windows had a cold draft coming through them. Felt rushed eating dinner so tables could be turntover for the next guest. First and last time dining here.

    The food was fantastic. The restaurant deciding to seat us upstairs in the bar/club area made the evening very unenjoyable. Loud music, flashing lights, made the experience very unappealing. Especially for celebrating Valentine’s Day. I have no idea why they would seat people upstairs. It’s not like it’s a cheap 1 star restaurant, it’s supposed to be an upscale restaurant, especially at the prices they charge. Trying to converse and enjoy a meal why WAP by Cardi B is playing in the background is not what I’d expect from a place claiming to be fine dining. If you’re going to shove people in your club, how about turn the music off until it turns into a club.

    Was excited but ultimately, this place had too much hype. The service was okay- server was nice but they checked in on us one every 30 minutes roughly. The food, including the sushi, was extremely oily; entrees/appetizers were pretty average and were not at all worth the price. There are so many better places in the area for “Japanese” food. I think the best part of our dinner was the drink my wife had: great presentation and flavor. I’m confused as to what the “experience” is supposed to be but there was nothing special, just a weird club vibe in a room with roughly 14 tables. Ultimately, I would give the food rating a 4/10, the drink rating a 6/10, the service rating 3/10, and the overall value a 1/10. I’m more than willing to pay for a great experience and good food, but here? No thanks. I don’t know who in their right mind gave this place an 11/10.

    Lipstick on both of our glasses, service was very rushed, food was okay but not worth the price point. Overall pretty disappointed because I really wanted to like this place. It’s great for a few drinks after dinner somewhere else, but not for a date night with your significant other.

    We had an excellent experience dining at ZuZu. The honey walnut shrimp was outstanding. Sea bass was delicious too. Everything was great. Just pay attention that a 20% gratuity is automatically added to your bill.

    The food was overall lackluster. My friend had the pepper steak that was pretty good, had very little steak and was mostly veggies. The prime rib skewers were different, not bad but I wouldn’t order again. I ordered the shrimp lo mein. It was just shrimp with overcooked noodles, and a dry sauce but no veggies. Unsatisfying. Drinks were just ok. Ntm the valet left my keys inside my car accidentally. That was unsettling. Wouldn’t recommend.

    So loud we couldn’t hear our server, expensive and the service was mediocre. We were waiting for our 4th person to join us and the server told us they were seating our table again promptly at 8pm so feeling unwelcome and rushed we decided to order without her. When we told the server our order she insisted we are supposed to share dishes which confused us and made us feel like we couldn’t order what we wanted. We ended up with too much food that tasted just ok. My friends tried to cheer me up by letting the server know it was my birthday dinner so they brought a seizure inducing strobe light and fake cake tower to wave around at our table which was odd. The saving grace for this place was the chocolate mousse dessert. Too bad I’ll never get to have it again as I don’t plan on coming back.

    This is an absolutely beautiful restaurant and the service was incredible from our waitress to the Bartender Omar. However, I think that the food and drink menus need some work. I wasn’t impressed with any of the food ordered (sushi rolls, Napa salad (best part of the meal) and pepper steak. I’ll try it again in the summer to checkout the patio vibes.

    For the price level and prestige that the restaurant offers both in presentation and presence online, I expected so much more from the food, the staff and the overall experience. If the restaurant wanted to be an elevated Chinese/Asian outpost, it could pull some notes from some other notable establishments around the country, i.e. Tao, Mr. Chow, Phillipe Chow, or Hakkasan. This could be so much more and draw in such a bigger and larger palleted clientele if you focused more on the dishes and service rather than just being a cultural destination.

    Amazing service, food and drinks! Our server Rosario was professional, pleasant and kindly answered all the questions we had. I cannot emphasize enough on the importance of having a great server. They will either make or break the overall experience & he did such a great job that we ended up coming back the following week with a larger group. Venue is beautiful, sushi was delicious & the rock shrimp noodles were so good!

    This was my second time dining here and while the first time wasn’t the best I figured I’d give it another chance since it was super crowded the first time. This last visit was worst than the first and the place was empty. The food came out randomly (while also being cold) so my party all ate at different times and the manager tried to tell us that’s the new trend!🤣 Everything is overpriced on top of being just ok and I don’t mind paying for an good but expensive meal…this was not that! The waitress actually walked around with a customers plate in her hand for about 5 minutes while she talked to the bartender, rang up some orders, etc…before finally delivering it! They are charging $20 for a small cup of fried rice which was mostly peas and dried out “Wagyu” steak. The place is pretty and very instagrammable but I’d never go back for anything other than drinks. There are much better food options in downtown Detroit.

    The waiter was very pushy about food and alcoholic beverages. He was inconsiderate as we do not drink alcohol. Had family out of town and it was not a pleasant way to show them a Detroit experience.

    This was our first time at Zuzu, but we will be back. Everything we ordered was delicious. We love sushi and have it regularly. So we know the difference between good sushi and less than good. The sushi at Zuzu was really delicious. When having other food items, we also were very pleased. Also the portions were ample. Our waitress Paris was terrific and we recommend her.
