2am and I couldn't sleep and realized it was because I was so upset by our dinner here. Where to begin. First and foremost, we specified that my son had a peanut allergy both on the reservation and in person with our server. When the...dessert came, we asked again just in case and lo and behold, there was an item with peanuts in it that noone told us about until we asked. Very dangerous and very careless of them!!! Infuriatingly so, given the well known dangers of peanut allergies. Secondly, after spending 200+ per person, we all left hungry and unsatisfied. To clarify, my husband and I came here last year for omakase and we loved it and raved about it. We brought our kids and a friend and her son this year to enjoy the experience with us. The quality of the food is good but the quantity and portion control was just awful. For example, Last year sushi sashimi course, 2 slices 2 pieces per person. This year was 1 slice 1 sushi per person. Last year, two of us shared a large peice of black cod. This year, SIX of us shared 2 peices about the same size. Same thing with the rib eye steak. 6 people sharing a tiny portion when last year, 2 of us shared a slightly smaller portion. Truffle mushroom course was made and served in the same size pot and same total portion for 2 people last year as 6 people this year. And so on and so on. They have INCREASED their prices but DECREASED their portions. What a rip off. Timing of the courses was all over the place as well. Some courses came out fast and all together and then there were long periods of time between other courses. It was a good 20 to 25 mins before we got our last dessert course. Bizarre. Icing on the cake...... I specified that we were there to celebrate a birthday and they completely did nothing. No birthday message whatsoever. Whatever. We were already displeased by the time we got the check only to find out they charged us $6 plus another $6 for the one sprite my son ordered. We had asked for a "refill" on the skinny small glass of 90% ice and 10% sprite he got, and got charged $6 for it. Honestly??? The food was good but no matter how good, when you leave hungry after spending 200+ per person, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I can see that the owners managers don't really even care about their customers bc they haven't responded to any of the negative reviews on here. I doubt they'll see or care about this but needed to warn everyone. Such a disappointment.More

Have been going to Zuma ever since they opened and the food is always great but each time i go the exeperience seems to worsen. They over book so the kitchen is always slammed and the food just comes out when they feel like it...and there is no flow or rhythm with the courses anymore . on this occasion all out hot food came before our starters then we had some lovely rice delivered to the table but with nothing to go with it I would always go back but the management her really need to get a grip on service and make sure the experience matches the food.More

We stayed at the Zuma last week on the 4th of July weekend, I've been trying to get a table there for the last 3 times in Vegas, and finally managed to get one, therefor was really excited and looked forward for this one. After...a quick glance at the menu, we decided to go with the tasting menu, we were told it would be 5 courses meals with about 15 dishes. The dishes were ok, some stood out more than the others, but as expected from a Zuma name branded restaurant. The food was coming way too fast, the feeling was like they were trying to make you eat and leave, and turnover the table to the next guests, how fast was it? You would get 3 dishes, before even finishin one or two you would get 3 more, and 2 more, until we figured this out and asked the waiter to stop and slow down, we found ourselves eating the meat dishes cold. My recommendation: be attentive to the pace and ask the waiter to try not to go super speed, especially in smaller groups. Service wise, from the waiters it was okay. some dishes were taken too fast before we were done with, some right in time, some were misplaces and we had water spilled on 1 of us from the bowl of ice of 1 of the dishes. Until then everything was still an okay experience we had enjoyed, at the end we asked to talk to a manager before paying in order to provide feedback for the restaurant to improve, something most of places accept and take with gratitude. 3 minutes later the manager was at our table and he approached us very aggressively, literally attacked us verbally and accused us that we do not want to pay the bills. Now come on, do your homework Mr. Manager, we are hotel guests for past 4 days, we have credit card as caution in the system, we attended the other restaurants in the hotel including Blue Ribbon and experience was fine there, did you really believe we intended to walk out without paying? Even after trying to explain you slowly and for 10 minutes, you didn't understand why we called you and after realizing you falsely accused us, and not only he didn't apologize but also the attitude didn't change and kept on being so hostile towards us. So Mr. Manager if your priority is not to create a great experience for your customers, not being attentive to them, not being caring, then even with the best food in the world (which it wasn't) it will not matter. I wouldn't let this manager run anything, let alone the Zuma Restaurant. To sum up, after expecting to dine at the Zuma Vegas for so long, I definitely not recommend you to eat there until a proper management is found for this branch, find a better place where you are wanted to spend your money at. BTW as a disclaimer, most of my reviews in Tripadvisor have been positive, if I did took the time to share a bad experience here there's a true reason behind it.More

TLDR; Good Food, Good Vibe, But don't complain! Let's start off by saying, the food is terrific. We took the Omakase, and most dishes were terrific. The best ones were the steak, shrimp & crab All fish dishes were also terrific. The worst one: Vegetable...dish - inedible. (Which at the end of the meal, we were made aware we could have had changed. At the end, not when we literally left it uneaten) Which brings us to management. For a meal that costs 170 per person, we expect a certain level of experience. Some cons: * Food was served in a hurry, not taking into account the pace of the people dining. * Bowls that were chilling the food started leaking all over the table and diners. * Due to the pace, items like steak sticks were cold, and were re-heated, which ruined the dish. * Chilled dishes that were left on the table were left unchilled. This also ruined the dining experience. When we brought this to managements attention, things spiraled out of control. A person identified as a manager of the restaurant, accused us for not paying! We believe this was a loss in translation. However, the complains at this point were not heard, and the manager was on full defense. There are high expectations when you pay this much for a meal, and ruining the end of the experience did ruin the whole experience at the end of the day. So make sure not to complain, or you may be accused of something you didn't say!More

We’ve been to Zuma before and in Miami, but it’s been a few years since our last visit. In LA we go to Katsuya in Brentwood and we basically benchmark most mid-to-high-end sushi restaurants to it (sorry Nobu). Zuma’s presentation is actually quite nice. The...food is served with care and visually looks great. The drinks were also quite good and the overall vibe didn’t feel stuffy or scene-y which was nice. SERVICE Our waiter was very nice and relaxed. He offered recommendations and took good care of us throughout the night. FOOD I feel a bit bad leaving a negative review on the food, but we both felt that it lacked flavor and we actually left a few items virtually untouched. The rock shrimp dressing had virtually no flavor and just felt like dipping the shrimp into a flavourless yellow mayo. The maki was better, but again, we didn’t really get any explosion of flavors with any of the 6 items we ordered. I want to emphasize that it’s not “bad” sushi…It’s just not as good as we expected it to be and when you spend $20-$35 per sushi roll it just needs to be amazing. We will most likely never come back.More

Superb Asian themed food creations. All cooked fresh and served superbly. A very vibrant and cool place that attracts A-lust types. The Sushi is divine, as is the signature cravings. You must try the Burning Sensation cocktail as amazing

My wife and I had a really incredible dinner. The atmosphere, ambiance, food taste and presentation were superb. The staff were all super friendly. Special shout out to Josh the manager, and Snoop the chef who kept entertaining us. The waygu skirt steak was insane,...so much flavour and so tender. All the sushi rolls were also great with the chirashi maki being our favourite. But the most noteworthy for me was the Burning History cocktail, a must try for any whiskey lover.More

I have been to other Zuma in other cities, this one had average food! No wow in any of the dishes and we ordered quite few. The food was coming so fast that it was hard to enjoy. It was obvious that they wanted to...turn over the table. The best thing was the ribeye steak. The sushi we can get in any decent sushi restaurant anywhere.More

Always have an excellent time while dining at Zuma; absolutely love the secret sushi roll and everything on the menu. Sit at the bar and get front row action to the bar service, you can watch while they make your fancy cocktails.

We live in Vegas full-time and have dinner on the Strip at least once a week. Zuma in The Cosmopolitan is one of our top favorites. It is a very beautiful restaurant, the staff is very professional and the food is superb. The portions are...not large (which is fine by us) but they are superb. The cocktails are divine and my husband's favorite is the Burning History. The music is low enough that you can carry on a conversation. We have visited restaurants with wonderful food and music so loud you had to shout. We don't go back to those. We have never had a bad experience there.More

The "high top" seating is in the bar/lounge area. The "regular" seating in more of the restaurant. As the night progresses, the music is turned up and the bar turns into a bit of a nightclub feel. If you want that, choose... More
