Please don't get me wrong. We were so excited to go back to Zo, since it's been about 2 years since our last meal there. We've read such great things of late and were really looking forward. Called and made a reservation at the bar for 7:30. Arrived on time and the bar was full, except for 2 ends seats. Keizo (owner) gave us a very unwelcoming glance. We then asked the gal in front if those are the only 2 seats available. The thought of sitting up against the wall, not in front of Keizo really turned us off. She didn't seem to understand what I was asking. Another employee translated to her what we were asking and she explained those were the only 2 seats. We sat and really didn't feel pampered or welcomed in the least, so we got up and left. No one seemed to care. Ended up at Kiriko on Sawtelle for an omakase. Owner Ken-san was a delight. We had omakase and really enjoyed everything, albeit expensive at $152.00 for the two of us, sushi only. Live and learn.
