Food was borderline mediocre — service was decent to great. Not worth the price
Good food, server is genuinely attentive. Everyone at the table was happy with the food and the drinks.
I loved food there, one of best Japanese food i ve ever tried. But service was not the best.
THE MOST AMAZING SERVICE AND FOOD!!!!
Amazing!! I would eat here anytime. Quality place, high quality Japanese.
Great dining experience with an unique array of Japanese inspired dishes ranging from Robata grill items to Sushi, along with a list of amazing entrees. The wine list is exceptional as well!
Good was excellent!
Had a wonderfull evening! The food is delicious, great wines and cocktails, and a young trendy atmosphere!
Fantastic food, great ambience!
Great food, service and atmosphere! Definitely will come back on our next visit in NYC.
The place looks beautiful and the food and service were very good.
Sushi was incredible. Tons of options. Service was great. Thanks!
Love Zuma and will definiteley be back! Recently, we were with a strict vegetarian/ non-fish eater and, surprisingly, they didn't have much of a selection of entrees for her. It is super elegant, beautiful, chic and expensive. But it's better with a small crowd because it is very noisy. Great drinks, too!
Was not sure what to order for the table so I had the waiter bring what ever he felt was best. Every dish was awesome and he brought a variety of food.
The third time I have dinner in Zuma, NY. the other experiences were great, but this time the waiter left something to be desired. For the price of the drink and the food the service should be impeccable.
Service is terrible.
Great spot, great atmosphere! Food is pricey but its matching the experience!
Place was very nice. Food was excellent. Service was very good. Very happy we pick this place for our Anniversary. Thanks for the Happy Anniversary Plate.
My 2nd time at Zuma the food is excellent!
Will be back
Great place with so many options to share and enjoy.
Reception standing to wait for business guest was poor. Service was weak.
Excellent feed and beautiful restaurant. Great service and interesting cocktails
Best food and great atmosphere
The food was excellent and the restaurant was beautiful! Pricey but delicious!
Made a reservation, waited 10-15 minutes to then be seated at the sushi bar (that was empty) and told that they didn’t have a table for me. Not sure why you take reservations if you don’t hold them. Also, if you are a midtown business lunch spot people expect to be seated on time.
Great meal and excellent service! Been several times and never disappointed!
I love this vibe and the staff are so lovely!
Ein In-Lokal in NYC, die Küche ist gut, aber auf eine unpersönliche Art und Weise. Ich saß an der Sushi Bar und konnte die großen Spannungen zwischen den Köchen hautnah mitverfolgen. Ich habe keine Spur von der asiatischen Gelassenheit entdecken können, aber ihre Arbeit wurde dadurch nicht beeinträchtigt. Da ich allein war, habe ich das als Unterhaltungsprogramm betrachtet. Max, der Kellner war Spitze, nett - aber nich die aufdringliche Ami-Bedienung. Wer die Noblen Restaurantketten mag und dafür die lautstarken Tischgesellschaften in Kauf nimmt, wird nicht enttäuscht. Und im Gegensatz zu Nobu wird man beim Betreten des Restaurants nicht von gesamten Personal angeschrien...
Our 3 meals came out at 3 different times. Their explanation is they have 3 different kitchens. This is unacceptable especially when you are paying a premium for the food!
Favorite place ever
The first time I went to Zuma i had the lunch special and my stomach didn't feel great afterwards.
This time I ordered off some of the specials off the menu and my stomach didn't feel great afterwards.
The options of dining experiences in the restaurant are great on both levels.
Food is fresh, will presented and flavorful
We waited 15 min to be seated. Food was mediocre at best. Chicken was a joke. Very noisy so don't expect to hold a relaxed conversation.
Even though we had a reservation for 11:00 pm. , we had to wait for our table. Once seated, management sent over 3 appetizers and apologized for making us wait. This is first class service. Great food, great atmosphere.
The food was excellent and we received great service from staff. Overall we had an amazing time.
Slow service, poor quality food. Pretty room. Go to Nobu or Koi instead. Zuma NYC is not like the Miami nor London restaurants. You will be disappointed in the food quality and service at the NYC location. There are far better places to go
Excellent food, atmosphere, and service!
I've dined at all 3 Zumas (Miami , Dubai and NYC) various times. Always good and service on point.
This time around our server Jada was stern, not friendly and while the service was good, her attitude was not
