My daughter and I ate here recently on a Saturday Night. I was looking for a restaurant that went a little beyond the Six Usual Suspects for the entrees, in as my daughter is not a fan of Steak, or most meat in general. Zengo with its tapas-based Asian Fusionesque menu seemed like a fit. We'll the first problem was... More

For 10 + years, Zengo has been by far our favorite restaurant. Many birthdays and many great meals. Unfortunately the new menu has none of our favorite items. The portions for the dishes we ordered were very small. We will not be going back. Very sad about this..... no more Won Ton Tacos. :(

Zengo has been closed for the last few weeks as they transitioned to a new look and a new concept prototypes at the Dubai Zengo. The new Zengo 2.0 is superb. The decor is elegant, the staff is professional, and the new menu (mostly Asian) is flawless. You must try the sweet potato cheesecake for desert. Besides being delicious, the... More

WOW! We've had the opportunity to dine at Zengo a few times now, and each time exceeds our expectations from the last. We have not visited for any other meal service outside of brunch, but let me tell you, the brunch process (yes it's a strategic process!) is quite spectacular. For $35 you can enjoy bottomless drinks and unlimited small... More

Visiting a friend we walked to this place as we do to everything in Denver! The food was different but good! I probably would not go back but it was a good one time experience. Prices are not bad! We had the Thai Chicken Empanadas - good, pork belly ramen and split a BBQ organic salmon.

I love Zengo! From the ambiance to the food, everything is amazing! It's got such a great atmosphere and the service is really good. The food is so unique but it's not too exotic. I always love going to Zengo and recommend it to anyone looking for a fun night out and the best food!

I was there for happy hour with 2 other friends. The drinks were terrific and the food was yummy. But the service was lackluster. It took forever for the food and drinks to arrive. I was planning to order another drink but the waitress brought our check without asking if we wanted anything else. I decided not to ask for... More

I have been going to Zengo since it opened and I was immediately hooked on the Wagyu beef. It comes raw, with a hot stone for you to place the meat on to cook. Its quite an experience. And it is so delicious. I mean, it is something to tell all of your friends about. The rest of the food... More

Zengo has been my favorite restaurant since the first time I went there with my sister who lives in Arvada, Colorado. Then Biblioteca (attached to Zengo) became my favorite due to the super cool atmosphere. Went on Sunday (never been on a Sunday) during the day to meet family for lunch. Very disappointed to find out that it was a... More

Went for brunch and had a fun time. The mimosas were good and the unlimited plates option made it fun to try a lot of dishes. I would say that we collectively only loved a handful of the dishes and thought the rest were just okay. Still had a good meal and left satisfied.
