"Best food I have had in the 9 months living in Huntington Beach. I can't believe it took me that long to try out Zimzala but this is hands down the best restaurant! Our server was excellent and super friendly. I can't wait to head back soon!"

"The service was good except a bit slow. We waited at least 10 minutes and then had to summon help to have a server greet us. The menu was a little confusing, using terms nobody would understand without asking questions. But the food was absolutely delicious. PS The barstool chairs could use a soft cushion."

"Not considered a brunch spot at all. The menu had only a handful of choices which doesn't constitute a traditional brunch. We were very disappointed and wished we had picked a different place to go out for a real brunch."

"The menu was limited but the food was well-prepared. Those of us who had been there before were disappointed that a great Tagine dish is no longer on the menu. Very limited wine list.
They seem to be trying to make the space into more of a sports bar--had a ping pong table set up! But it was quiet enough for us to talk.

"I really enjoyed the hotel and restaurant being dog- friendly. It was great to include our puppies in a morning brunch. Unfortunately the dog menu was out for the day, so we weren't able to order off what we had seen online. The food was pretty good - and our server was nice as well. I had heard great things about the restaurant and the brunch there so I think my expectations were a little high when I went. I apologize for a not-as-rave-review as I planned. The view is incredible though. Very pretty look towards the HB pier and water. Next time I will ask to be under the canopy more towards the streets - we were sat where the view was pretty but the sun was just too hot."

"I have to say the place was very nice but unfortunately the kid that was serving us was really bad...... He came 6 times to the table to keep asking the same questions about the order, we were waiting for 55 min for our drinks and food, and the restaurant was only at 33% max
I requested to have a different server and the lady that took over was much better

"We live in Huntington Beach and we've eaten at Zimzala a couple of times, but for Father's Day it was such a disappointment. They were short handed, took a while to get your food and it wasn't the quality it use to be - should have had both Father's Day menu and regular menu. It wasn't that crowded, but apparently bad planning when the poor waiter had to keep apologizing for how long it took to get our food, that they were short handed - not great planning on Zimzala's part, but boy they sure got those drinks to you fast enough.
All of us were not that happy and won't go back, it's in a great location and their patio's view is great, but a very disappointing eating experience."

"their website said they had hummus as appetizer and when I tried to order it they said it had been gone from menu for couple months at least. Very disappointing as I had selected this spot for just that item.
Our server Taylor was wonderful however and we did find couple of good items on menu. Drinks were tasty = he had one of specialty cocktails and I had a rose Prosecco that I loved.

"We love Zimzala because you can eat dinner with your dogs on their outdoor balcony. They even have a menu for dog food.
Though they recently did some radical changes to the menu and took away our favorite Cheese Plate and their only pasta dish. They still have some great appetizers, though.

"We've been in love with Zimzala since we moved here 18 months ago. The new menu was disappointing. Too few choices and some of the top sellers have been taken off. They were out of the wine we love and the service seemed "off"...we didn't have menus, the appetizers were not appetizing and we hope things will go back to the reason we started going there. It seemed the bar area has been enlarged and the dining experience is suffering."

"Arrived On Time for our reservation. Quickly approached by Sara, who did a fine job with drinks and taking our order. Thirty fice minutes later we saw her again - "the kitchen is backed up." Ten minutes later the food came. We won't be back."

"We like to go for breakfast and I like the granola with yogurt. Also we like the waffle with blueberries and bananas.
The service is ok
That they turned this hotel into a "dog" hotel as well as the restaurant is only a pleasure for dog persons...
