Count on Zee Grill
Zee Grill just delivers time and time again. They are the perfect pick for a raw oyster at the bar with a cold crisp Coors Light, or a full on full course dinner including fresh lobster by the pound. Their signature Ceasar salad Zee salad is wonderful with the server splitting it open if front of you to garnish with a poached egg. Great vibe, wonderful service, engaged owners for a couple of decades at least. Feels like a Manhattan seafood bar and grill on Mount Pleasant. Cheers.

Second time at Zee and it
Second time at Zee and it was really amazing. We shared a variety of oysters and then had the duck and seared tuna. Shared the meringue and lemon ice cream. Good wine from Central Otago New Zealand. Service is always excellent.

As always, 10 out of 10 regarding the oysters, etc. On the seafood plateau, there were new variants of raw scallops and fish with amazing kinds of roe on top: delicious.
So now, 11 out of 10 I guess...

Really Excellent food
Food was excellent. My only negative was that we were seated at the very back of the restaurant and it was very loud. Fortunately the food was so good that we tolerated the noise.

Well executed dishes without being overdone. Reasonable prices, cozy atmosphere, not pretenious. It is easy to see what Zee Grill consistently gets great reviews. A real find for us. We will be back.

Best in Toronto so far!
I last was at this restaurant maybe 20 years ago. I moved to the States for many years and when I returned I (wrongly) assumed it was tired/not good anymore. My husband booked us in and I wasn't thrilled to go. What a fantastic surprise! The food was amazing. The best meal we have had in Toronto to date and we eat out a lot. The restaurant was packed with locals on a Tuesday because they obviously know how great this restaurant is. We loved everything we ordered and want to go back and try more. Highly recommend Zee Grill! We'll be back soon!

I really enjoy a good meal focused on fish. The fish for this meal was cooked to perfection.

Zee Grill is a quaint little neighbourhood restaurant. I took my husband there for his birthday and it was quiet, intimate and both service and food were great. We both enjoyed our drinks (martini and wine) and the food was a little different and super tasty. There were good choices for dessert and we even got a free aperitif.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family and we'll be going back soon.

Had walked by it for years...
Decided to give it a try for a somewhat special occasion. We were very impressed with the food, service and at quite reasonable prices. The oysters were very fresh and shucked perfectly.
We will be going here again quite a few times I'm certain of it.

My favourite restaurant
I have never been disappointed with any food at Zee Grill. Everything is prepared and served with perfection. It is indeed 'fine' dining. Try the crabe cake. It is out of this world!
And, the servers are all welcoming and very helpful - but not overwhelming - the perfect balance.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was outstanding. Excellent service. The plates were presented like little pieces of art. Will highly recommend.
Portions a little on the small side, therefore appetizers are needed.

The only issue was that I got a table at a back corner. OpenTable reservations don't get the better tables.

I had been craving oysters for a few days and Zee Grill satiated me. I had the chef select the varieties and I was quite happy with the dozen I got. Other non-oyster eaters in my party were not as thrilled with their steaks...I think it had more to do with portion size than flavour or presentation. The halibut, I was told, was spectacular. The staff was great too. Highly recommended.

Best seafood restaurant in TO?
It's certainly a candidate. Original but satisfying dishes, always-fresh ingredients, very well presented, never disappoints, friendly and accurate service (waiters know and explain their dishes well). Any seafood lover will go back again and again, as I do.

Delicious fish and seafood
We decided to give this place a try on a whim. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious. It seemed a bit cavernous when we first walked in, but once you walk towards the centre of the restaurant, it lightens up and the back area is well-lit. There is a screened in "porch" in the back that looked really lovely to sit in if it hadn't been so humid the night we were there.
Definitely recommend this place for anyone who likes fish and seafood!

Can't Say Enough!!
We have been to Zee Grill countless times and each time it get better and better!! The oysters are fresh and there are many varieties. The wait staff (props to Larry!) are all helpful and friendly. If you don't want to "schlep" downtown for amazing oysters and food then go to Zee Grill!! We will be back!!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time at the restaurant. Servers are professional, kind, and know their stuff. The food is amazing! A great selection of oysters.
Highly recommend the wild duck breast. YUM! The place is fairly small, which is nice because it creates a certain atmosphere that you just don't get at large corporate restaurants. Will absolutely come back.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere and wonderful
Great atmosphere and wonderful prompt service! Wine list was good, had all the favourites. The lobster croquiles were prefect and the scallops were the best I ve ever had and I have alot of scallops!

Zee Grill Never Fails To Impress!
My husband and I enjoyed a memorable meal at Zee Grill to celebrate a milestone birthday. We decided to treat ourselves and ordered the "Seafood Tower" for two (with an extra half lobster!) The seafood was fresh with bright flavours, and the sides were a tasty complement. The service could not have been better -- attentive without being intrusive, informed and always friendly. A trio of flourless chocolate deserts and the Meringue Lemon Ice Cream Sandwich were a decadent but remarkably light end to a wonderful meal. We always love the warm ambiance of this restaurant, and enjoy watching the professional bustle in the open kitchen. One of our favorite restaurants and always our "go-to" for special events.

One very loud table spoiled
One very loud table spoiled the evening for a lot of people. They quietened down after other diners spoke to them. But the staff ignored it.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We lost count of the times we've been here. The restaurant tinkered with the seafood plateau (no more crudo and other little delicacies (lobster instead)), so we went for oysters straight. 6 varieties, all super fresh and delicious. Sugokus (no not the puzzle ;-) ) a nice addition; like a meatier Kumamoto. After lots and lots of those: Chilled mussels. divine, as is the trout pate with a glass of pinot noir for dessert. Service outstanding as always. Will return, but you knew that. Oh, and bring back the original plateau.
7/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
The wild Salmon and Halibut were perfectly prepared. The vegetables were crispy and delicious. The sauce light and delicious.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent location, good food
If you are going to a play, the location is literally second to none. Make a reservation.
Dinning outside on their covered veranda or in the front garden is an added treat for summer starved Canadians. The food is slightly inconsistent. At our table of four, we started by sharing two orders of the delicious fritters. For entrées, we had two excellent dishes (the halibut & the scallops) and a very decent vegetarian dish. Unfortunately, the tuna was not good; it was slightly overcooked and fishy. Having left most of the tuna untouched, it would have been nice for the restaurant to offer to redo it, prepare something else, or to adjust the bill. None of which was done. Aside from this misstep, everything else was great and we would return.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first experience, we found this restaurant by accident walking on Mt Pleasant. It was such a nice surprise. Food was incredible. Service was friendly and prompt. This time we brought friends for a special occasion. We were not disappointed. Food was still incredible and the service attentive. Highly recommended.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A different experience
Caring and efficient service.
Every item on the plate had a purpose and taste.
Really admired the meek presence of the Chef amongst the diners.
A memorable dining experience

Zee Grill Does it Again
This is the second time my wife and I have been to Zee Grill, approximately 1 year to the day from our last visit, and it did not disappoint. Our last experience was excellent; great food, service, location, and atmosphere. This visit was no exception. We both chose well for appitizers (the trout pate is excellent, the Hawian Salad is outstanding), and the Lobster's for the main course were both large (2lbs), however, still sweet and tender (prepared very well). If I had to pick one thing that was not as "up-to-par" when comparing year over year visits was the service; it was still good, but it felt a little slow at times. Overall, great experience, and we will be back again.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
After a very good green salad I had the fried scallops. I hesitated over the price ($24) but saw this dish as the most interesting in a fairly limited menu. In the event, the scallops were fantastic - lightly breaded and barely cooked, extremely tender and flavourful.
The server was very attentive and knowledgeable, and took the time to engage in conversation about Toronto and Ottawa, where I live and she visits frequently. All in all, a very enjoyable evening.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Food, Highly recommended...
Myself and My wife went to Zee Grill for our engagement anniversary. The place offers a great eating experience, complimented with great service. The food came on time, not late and not quick to serve. We were not rushed at all. We enjoyed the nice quiet atmosphere. We had a most smooth and wonderful tasty crab.
This place is not expensive!!!!

Zee Grill was zee greatest
Really enjoyed our meal. Service was exemplary - perfect balance between friendliness and attentiveness, with being at all intrusive. Food was excellent - interesting with some unusual flavours, lovely presentation and very well prepared. Over all, a terrific evening - we'll be back!

As one of few great fish restaurants in the uptown/mid town zone, Zee Grill or Phoebes is consistently a winner! The staff are great, the food is fresh, the ambiance is awesome, warm moody lighting and a happening vibe! We were delighted to get a reservation ona saturday night! Bravo.

Wonderful seafood - great prices!
Looking for a restaurant that would suit my pescetarian husband's tastes and found it at Zee Grill. Knowledgeable, friendly service, a variety of fresh oyster choices, a varied if somewhat limited menu and reasonable prices - it added up to a great night out. We also appreciated the noise level, which came from people having a good time rather than a loud soundtrack - we'll definitely be back! (Be sure to try the Trout Pate - it is outstanding)
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Grilled Calamari was possibly the best we've ever had. Actually, all the food was pretty good. Fresh, decent portions and tasty. The service was really good too. A must try.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
classy, friendly and reliable
We've been going for years and never disappointed. Great seafood, frites to die for, and kid-friendly service even without kid-specific choices. They make it work. Have enjoyed as a family or with a crowd. Quaint to say the least.

Good seafood in midtown
Convenient location midtown with relatively easy parking. Food was good. Moderate portion sizes so we didn't leave stuffed.
Waiter was a bit frenetic.
