This is the second time I've been to this restaurant and each time I've been nothing but impressed! The building that houses ZaZa is an old original building that has been nicely maintained and updated while keeping the classic atmosphere.

I'm sure they could handle a group of 40 in the bar area, particularly on a week night. I'd suggest reservations to be on the safe side.
