"Mexican-born chef-owner Richard Sandoval added an Asian accent to his modern Mexican cuisine for this chic eatery. Zengo is a hip, 200-seat, orchid-decorated, open-kitchen restaurant. During the week, locals drop in for a sampling of tapas and cocktails. We have enjoyed Kobe beef stone-cooked tableside, tequila-smoked salmon sushi rolls and pork dumplings with chile piquin sauce. There's a great selection of sak้ and an eclectic wine list but the fun drinks are the martinis (accented with fresh fruit pur้es) and mojitos (try the refreshing rum, mint, cucumber number)..."  --Gayot

"..Chef/owner Richard Sandoval has created an exciting spot that gives a fascinating combination of Latin and Asian cuisine, taking the best of both in presentation and preparation of the dishes. The design by international designer Jeffrey Beers brings a retro look with lots of red in Jetson-like Plexiglas lights and big, white, '70s ball chandeliers, stone walls, an orangey-red ceramic tiled bar, iron work and flower designs, merging all the elements together in this 150-seat restaurant. The focal-point sushi and ceviche bar and open kitchen add great touches to the scene. A huge lounge offers a comfortable place for gathering. Don't miss the cucumber mojito, specialty drinks and great wine list." --GabbyGourmet

"The essence of Zengo lies in the kitchen. Not in the resum้ of executive chef/owner Richard Sandoval. Not in the gorgeous nouveau-club lines of the dining floor. Not in the nightlife-beautiful waitresses. No, this is a galley story, with success or failure hanging on the ability of the cooks to translate into dollars and applaud a Latino-Asian fusion menu that sounds ridiculous but works shockingly well. Don’t miss the black cod and honey-fried plantains." --Westword
