My husband introduced me to G-Zen a couple of years ago, and I fell in love with it. It has the best food I have ever eaten, except for my husband's cooking; even the water is good. Because of the distance, we do not get to eat here often, so it is a real treat when we do. We are... More

The food is great and different, the service is good. The place is small but well decorated. My only issue is its really expensive and I had to hold off on going there as much as I wanted to.

Have dined there on several occasions, and never disappointed. Imaginative choices, great service, great taste. A little pricey, but well worth it.

The chefs at G-Zen are exceptional in both the way creative, delicious food is prepared, served, and for the service offered by management and waitstaff. I adore this restaurant for the abundance of food served, and the range of delights. Both cashew-based raw cheeses are offered, homemade bread, and a variety of intriguing soups, salads and entree's with chef specialties... More

We had a reservation for our party of seven for 8:00 PM and arrived right on time. We... More
