Unfortunately, this restaurant has closed but another similar restaurant is established in its place. There will never be a replacement for Zake....it was fabulous.

My friend and I had purchased a google offer to try the restaurant out. We were pleased with the food and service. We had two appetizers, edamame and stuffed jalapenos, both enjoyable. I had the chicken tempura and California sushi rolls. I play it safe : - ) My friend didn’t like her first order because she didn’t realize that... More

After an afternoon of shopping at the quirky Trader Joe's grocery store in the old Alabama movie theater on Sheppard my wife and I happened on Zake Sushi Lounge located next door. We showed up at an off hour (3pm) but the staff treated us like royalty. The selection of foods was varied, artfully presented and reasonably priced. I got... More

I've been going to Zake for years. They have great happy hour specials and the happy hour seems to keep extending. Not one of these places where the happy hour lasts 2 hours and then that's it. I think it is at least 4-7PM and often if you call they will say happy hour is lasting all day. I'm always... More

Nice lunch: best appetizer ever - hot crab roll, paper thin and crisp, good shrimp entree and better than average flan for desert. Perfect value. Service could be a bit faster. Overall very good experience

We went late on a Friday and it was pretty quiet, which was just what we wanted. There was a group of us, and the server sat us immediately and took our orders. This was my first time there and the service was prompt and immediate, and the food was fantastic. The manager even came by to see how we... More

The happy hour is what has us coming back multiple times. Much of their menu is reduced in price and the sushi is very fresh. The service as previous reviews cite is pretty weak but the food itself and the happy hour deal is the attraction.

The managers here demonstrated the worst customer service I've ever seen in my life! Please do not patronize this restaurant because they care nothing about making customers happy and honoring their promotions. There was hardly anyone in there on this Saturday night (01/21/12) at 9:00 p.m. and the customer service is most likely the reason. A friend of mine and... More

Great food, but the service is deplorable. We had to wander the restaurant looking for our server, not once, but twice - and the place was nearly empty - we were one of about four tables occupied. If the service is lousy, it doesn't matter how great the food is. Speaking of their food, they have a great menu with... More
