Teatro ZinZanni's main event is part circus, part dinner theatre, and always magical. Described as "the Kit Kat Klub on acid" and "the hottest ticket in town" Teatro ZinZanni is a night out unlike any other. It is a three-hour whirlwind of international cirque, comedy and cabaret artists all served up with a scrumptious multi-course feast and elegant libations.

Sorry to say that by the time you read this Teatro will be closed after years of being a Seattle icon. Tonight was amazing. The variety show/circus acts were always entertaining and the food wonderful considering the number of people being served but tonight seemed special. Thank you Teatro.

Another Seattle experience worth going to. Always fun, at times rowdy depending on the crowd. Everyone has a good seat and is fed well by the perfformers themselves. Always a changing venue so you can

We went to a Sunday matinee not knowing exactly what to expect. The show was well timed, funny, and performed by talented and skilled performers. The acrobatics were impressive and awe-inspiring! The food was interesting and alright. Unfortunately, our server was inexperienced and service was slow and pretty inept. He even got our dinner order wrong. The manager did apologize... More

This was our 6th or 7th trip to Teatro Zinzanni, spread pretty evenly over the 19 years from when they opened in Seattle in 1998 through last night (including one visit to their San Francisco venue, which is now shuttered). Their current show, "Welcome to Wonderland", may be the best of the bunch. Other shows may have featured more spectacular... More

A $700 evening in theory should blow your socks off. It was an awesome show but when you pair it with a crappy five course meal it sucked. We ended up having to go to dinner after we left because we were all starving. The salad was blah and the soup was disgusting... our appetizer was pretty good but I... More

We have gone to this venue four times and never have been disappointed. The entertainment is great. A few sexual innuendos but nothing overt or terribly raunchy. The food has always been great, the wait staff (part of the entertainment) are very good and attentive. Just a great fun evening.

Don't depend on them for a big party. Made reservations six weeks in advanced for a party of 12. When we arrived we were seated not only at two separate tables, but about 15 feet apart with an aisle between us. We couldn't talk to each other and if we dared to try to text each other a waiter would... More

I didn't know what to expect from this visit. But I was impressed. The artists, the show, everything was sooo good. And the atmosphere was so incredible. Definitely worth another visit.

The show as a whole was brilliant. Though it was carried by the troupe. The food was just so-so with a side of lets keep it simple. The constant pandering to sell or purchase an extra made me feel like a tourist in a third world brushing off vagrants accosting me for my spare change. I did make the purchases... More

I really really wanted to give this 5 but I cant. I have been to alot of diffrent types of dinner shows and as far as that, in its category it's by far the best, however I feel like you need to compare both the show and the dinner to a restaurant and a play. That being said for the... More
