Returned after a 2-year hiatus to find new décor. When Zengo first opened, the fusion scene was in its heyday. Combining Japanese and Mexican food was truly a novel experience. Crab empanadas, citrusy salmon poke, bulgogi kimchi street tacos... all are still really great flavor concepts complimented by inventive cocktails. But the "wow" factor that Zengo had in its early...

It was two of our birthdays. We got there in time and had to wait for about ten minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. I ended up calling the restaurant (yes from my table) to ask for service. Someone came, apologized and offered a free round of drinks and appetizer. We got our food and had to wait for about... More

It was our first visit to Zengo. Used a Groupon and immediately felt discriminated against for doing so. Samantha, our server, brought us tea for two with enough hot water for one. It wasn't busy. We were early and other than waiting on us she was folding napkins. Food was great. Had the chili and garlic edamame, tuna poke, dragon... More

My wife began dining at this location around 10 yrs ago. We enjoyed the mix of cultures that connected taste buds. Our visits were not only the food but the wait staff that made each visit special. Late summer 2016, it was announced that there would be a redo to the dining room as well as the menu. We waited... More

Now understand I am not complaining about the food. The complaint on this review is about the service. It was not rude in any way but it was extremely slow. It took 20 plus minutes to get what was our appetizer roll to the table and it came with our dinner. But our entire dinner didn't arrive. My wife's vegetable... More

This place has exquisite food. Delicious samplings. Expensive, but the brunch is bottomless as are the drinks. So with that, it's not expensive at all. Staff is very attentive, friendly and surprisingly serious. Good atmosphere, open and inviting. My only complaint is that this place is HIPSTERVILLE! 80% of the patrons are class-A, textbook hipster/yuppie. I actually had a good... More

My husband and I went to Zengo for Denver restaurant week. Denver restaurant week is a great way to try a new restaurant. It occurs every year in February. During this week participating restaurants will have a special restaurant week menu. Zengo offered a 3 course meal. Food was good, price was good. I got chicken on skewers, then a... More

The good at Zengo was varied and excellent. Best food we've had in a long time - each dish was so good we kept ordering more. Asian with a Latin flair. And, the wait staff and the restaurant manager were welcoming and warm, making us feel comfortable and ready to come back for such a great experience. Great decor, good... More

Zengo used to be our favorite restaurant in Denver, but a recent remodel changed more than just the decor. The electronic dance music was so loud it made conversation almost impossible, and when we asked if they could turn it down, the answer was "No". We asked our server if there was a quieter section in the restaurant, and again... More

We were serve a cold and too salty soup. The dim sum were also quite disappointing, chewy. We left after 20 min to head to another restaurant.
