Came here for the Dine out menu 2017, our sushi and sashimi were superb! Unfortunately it made the braised beef fall short as it was too salty and tough to bite into. The waitresses were very nice, but it was hard to gain their attention when we needed tea refills.

This was a wonderful experience. Our server, whose name I don't know, unfortunately, was great. He was fun to talk with and made suggestions for us that gave us a memorable meal. The menu at Zen is huge, so his guidance was really helpful. Will definitely be back!

Very noisy. Service was perfunctory. We felt as if we were just an annoyance for the person who had to serve us. Food excellent but way overpriced in most cases. We will not return.
