I enjoyed my food at Zama and I would gladly eat there again. I would just wait a few months before my next stop in because to leave satisfied you are going to have to open your wallet. Zama is a bit upscale and they have a progressive menu to justify their prices. And the food is good. But you can most likely spend a fraction of the price at other restaurants that offer Japanese food and leave about as happy. The atmosphere is unique and the decor is pleasant to the eye, but the seats are very uncomfortable no matter if you're in a chair or on a booth. The food was nice and had an abundance of fresh flavor combinations. We had to wait a bit but the service was pleasant and helpful. I don't want to sound too negative as I really did enjoy Zama, I just wouldn't rush back to show my friends.
