Unfortunately despite sending an email asking how everything was, the restaurant leaves no way to actually give them feedback as the online form does not work. If it was after my first visit I would say 5 stars, but after my second Im mildly annoyed. In my first visit the bill was about $400 something for two people which is pricey but reasonable for a fancy place. The second visit left some bad feelings. That said, I've been here twice, and both times the food is delicious in the grand scheme of food. However....$700+ including tip (yes, you read that right....) for two people? I'm not sold on that. It was definitely food-gasmic (tho lets ignore that their idea of decadent apparently involves putting copious black truffle on EVERYTHING...again, be creative at this pricepoint). Lucky I like truffle but I expected more imagination with the food. The dessert was totally boring (milk choco lava cake and fruit? really? i could make that). I would have hoped for a little more ingenuity with the dishes, given that it was my 2nd time and the dishes were  exactly the same even though I paid extra for the "seasonal" omakase  (last time I just got the "premium" one)-- the last time I was there was 4 months earlier in the winter, so you'd think the "seasonal" dishes would be different....a point comes off for charging me like $50 for a supposedly special menu yet giving me basically the same omakase I got when I was there in the winter. Next, comfort-- I specifically asked when I reserved for an indoor table that was NOT in the sushi bar area. What did I get? A table in the sushi bar area. You put me, a tall-ish woman in heels, and my 6'4" boyfriend at a tiny short table by the bar that was more appropriately sized for a child (literally--an 8 year old girl at the table next to us seemed very comfortable). I realize you are trying to do the low-seated Japanese experience or some such thing but it doesnt work here. They were pompous enough to demand , when I called to confirm my reservation, that I dress appropriately and stated they would limit my time at the table to two hours (for the prices you charge, I should be able to sit there for three bloody hours if I want). Here's the thing-- if you are requesting people dress nicely, which for most women means high heels with a skirt or dress, then Im not sure how they felt it was adequate to seat me at a table where my knees barely fit under the table and were constantly banging on the metal bar under the table, so I had to sit sideways to get relief, and never mind that my exceptionally tall 6'4" boyfriend looked like he was seated at a children's table. The food was outstanding, tho unimaginative per above, but at least on my last visit I was seated at a normal size /height table --  this time it was difficult for us to be physically comfortable, and was told by the staff that all "normal" tables were reserved and thus unavailable. I saw a two person table open and it is unlikely that whatever couple was slated for that table was our height, so I'm not sure why we couldn't sit there given that I specifically asked for a normal indoor table when I reserved a month earlier. It is somewhat disappointing to spend $700+ on a dinner and not be comfortably seated throughout the experience. It is a small detail comparatively, but for the price point and your insistence on certain attire, you should not be seating people for full dinners at these tiny low tables that are sized literally for children and that at best are more suited for casual drinks by the bar-- not a full sit-down multicourse rather expensive dinner with patrons that are 6'4" and would clearly be more comfortable at a regular sized table. Even the shorter woman at the table next to me had her legs in a ridiculous angle trying to fit under the table because she was wearing very high heels. I mean it is somewhat ridiculous to even have such tables utilized for full dinner service. At your level of service these are details you should pay attention to. Finally, while I enjoyed our waiter overall, there were some things I did not like about the service, and given that I saw another review with a similar complaint on tripadvisor, its not just this waiter. For starters-- do not offer me edamame with the subtle implication it is akin to a free bread-basket (it isnt, btw, it was $7 and we didnt even eat it because the guy practically forced it on us the second we sat down so we just said ok thinking it was complimentary). In fact, we are spending literally almost a thousand dollars on dinner-- maybe you can just give the effing 3 cent edamame for free to the table. My drink order was forgotten. Twice. then they messed up the order. Unacceptable at this pricepoint. Finally-- the waiter upon giving the bill pointed out that the included tip was not "his" tip but shared amongst staff. Yeah I get it, some places pool tips. But it's poor form to guilt me into giving more. Not as much a fan as I was the 1st time.
The sushi I had here a couple weeks ago was great, probably some of the freshest I've personally tasted. I thought the environment was cool, but I wish the servers were a little more friendly and personable, I guess it's the style of cuisine.
No words for this place. For quite some time I've been wanting to go to Zuma but for whatever reason I always ended up elsewhere. I am so glad I finally went. I ordered the wagyu gyoza, calamari, pork belly and then the special chocolate cake. I have no regrets. This place is ideal for celebrations, dates, etc. I will definitely be coming back
