"This unassuming little restaurant really surprised me. The food was outstanding. I had the vegetarian lasagna and my friend had the gnocchi. Both were perfect. We also had a great little wine and the hummus appetizer. Don't pass it up just because it's in a strip center. The inside is very cute."

Legendary Orange County chef and restaurateur Zov Karamardian has opened the doors to her newest restaurant, Zov"s Anaheim, located on the corner of Katella and State College. The 130-seat restaurant serves a menu of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine including several flatbreads or "Pitzas," Greek Shrimp Salad, Spiced Lamb Burger and Sumac-Roasted Sea Bass. The stylishly decorated entry leads to a welcoming and elegant bar that offers a local micro-brew beer selection, fine wines and several specialty craft cocktails. The two adjacent interior dining rooms are perfect for large and small parties. Just outside, the patio integrates seamlessly with the interior space and offers ample seating along with a fire pit and large flat-screen TVs. <br /><br />“Lunch at Zov’s” has always been the phrase used by the OC Power Lunch community looking for upscale cuisine in a comfortable environment. Zov’s offers a unique happy hour and free corkage Sunday and Monday evenings.

"There are not a lot of restaurants near the Anaheim Convention center so I was thrilled to find this place. I took clients there the first night I was in town. The food was so unbelievably fresh and delicious, that I went back several nights later with another group. Both groups raved about the food. Don't miss the mezze platters!"

"I cannot believe this restaurant was just noted as "One of the Best New Restaurants in Austin." The food was truly bland. My friend ordered the grilled shrimp. She got weird bites of unrecognizable stuff in her shrimp. Our drinks were not great either. The server was very nice and accommodating and the atmosphere was good; but you can't have a great restaurant with bad food. I was truly disappointed overall."

"The food and atmosphere was wonderful. I would look at the wines online ahead of time. Our waiter could not help us choose one and I was not familiar with most of them."
