OMG. The cioppino is to die for. Seafood lovers will be thrilled. This is a hearty dish, scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of fish in a citrus tomato based sauce. Zov has never disappointed us in the more than 30 years coming here. The lamb chops are my other go to dinner dish here, the cioppino is definitely going to demand to share my palette. Can't wait to come again for another portion.

Really impressed. We had Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon and Albacore Tuna Sandwich, and we all loved our meals! Service was Excellent. Reuben was the best!! Audrey was wonderful as well. They took such good care of us! Even the owner came by and made us giggle. Can’t wait to go back to our new place to eat in Tustin.

sit at the bar for happy hour pricing. Bartender makes very good drinks and the happy hour menu is nice as well. We like the beef tostadas.

It had been awhile since we had been to Zov's and we were surprised to find the dinner area was a glass-enclosed patio with ceiling heaters that did not keep the cold drafts away. Not the cozy atmosphere I recall from Zov's many years ago. While Open Table had stated there was no corkage fee for the first bottle, we were told that policy was no longer in effect. The wine and food was expensive, and for those prices we expected at least a tablecloth on our table. Service was a bit slow, but the food we ordered was tasty.

I remember eating here maybe 20 years ago and remembered that I thought that the food was dry middle eastern food. It's still dry middle eastern food. The lamb burger was difficult to eat because it was dry, even though I asked for medium rare. I also couldn't taste the middle eastern spices. Our waitress disappeared after serving our water. I flagged another server and he was good. The baked goods looked terrific, so maybe I'll try it in another 20 years and just order that.

My friend and I arrived at Saturday evening, just after 8pm. (They close at 9pm.) The bakery was already closed (at 8pm) and we were directed to the Bistro side. We were greeted and seated by the hostess. There was live music (a woman with a mic and an amp and a guitar.) The atmosphere seemed fine. We sat there for 20 minutes and no one ever came over to greet us or take a drink order. We left after 20 minutes. I won't be back.

Came here for Mother’s Day since we’ve been here before and was disappointed. They had a prefix menu, and the selection was not the best off of their regular menu and the price didn’t make sense. It was an appetizer and entree for $65/per person, which is more than if you order off the regular menu. Food was also okay. Service was wonderful, staff was friendly and quick. However, we did leave disappointed and wished we picked another restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day.

I was disappointed with my dining experience at Zov's for several reasons: 1) I had to wait longer than I wanted before a server came to my table to take my order, 2) although I asked for the Chicken Paillard Salad without goat cheese or raw onions (which he honored), and the server offered parmesan to which I said yes, the salad came with no cheese at all, 3) although the greens were reasonably fresh, nothing was special about them (they were like, or were!, the supermarket bagged kind), 4) no bread or crackers or any other go-with was offered, 5) the couple of measly small wedges of tomato in the salad weren't ripe (come on, folks, this is early September in Southern California--red ripe tomatoes are EVERYWHERE!), 5) the total with diet Coke and tip came to a few cents less than $30. That's too much for a meh salad. On the bright side, the candied walnuts were delicious, and the server was smiley.

This was a very unusual choice for a business dinner but I thought that everyone might enjoy something different and no one was disappointed. Great Mediterranean food and very good service. The group had the large appetizer platter and NOTHING was left. Chicken,halibut and kebabs were ordered for main dishes and everyone complimented the chef. Forget desserts. Positively sinful. Would return. Prices are in line with $$$ restaurants.

We both had the scramble-so good! Excellent service. Enjoy having a more upscale breakfast. Coffee cake and hash brown is also delicious!

Zov's is a local favorite. Great happy hour menu, stick around for dinner and don't miss the hot fudge brownie desert made with marshmallow cream. Flavor profiles are bold, Mediterranean/Armenian vibe. Great hummus but also excellent steak. Put it simply, Zov really knows food!

This is a great restaurant for a date night... even if you’ve been married for years. Great food... nice wine... and save room for dessert.
