It was greatMy husband and I went to Restuarant Zoe after being given a gift certificate for my birthday
The people were very nice and the ambience fit just great. The food was wonderful.
I am still dreaming of the lemon macaron !
Definitely I will go there again.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable--in a good wayCelebrated my birthday with two great friends, and every part of the meal was fantastic. The steak tartare and the pasta appetizer were flawless, and the flat iron steak and duck confit were delicious but not overly dramatic or saucy--the true fresh flavors came through. The service was excellent--friendly, non-intrusive, and paced perfectly. Never felt rushed or abandoned. I'd go back in a heartbeat. I'm from Portland, and we have fabulous restaurants as well, but Zoe is a cut above.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Romantic DinnerMy girlfriend and I visited Seattle last weekend and stayed near Capitol Hill. We found Restaurant Zoe on Yelp and decided to give it a try after looking at the menu and reading good reviews. We were not disappointed! RZ was a very memorable experience, and we will definitely be going back next time we are in Seattle.
The service at RZ was simply top notch!
My girlfriend's favorite was the wild boar bolognese with pappardelle. We also had the steak tartare as a small plate (perfectly balanced), and shared the duck leg confit (rich and tender). Both were outstanding! We enjoyed our meal with a bottle of '09 Rosso di Montalcino, and had orange creme brulee for dessert. I can't say enough how great the food and service was!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Restaurant Zoe every time!This was our second time to Restaurant Zoe and we loved it. Had a great wine along with many dishes to share. It was perfect! Try the chocolate caramel desert!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood had a heavy hand on theFood had a heavy hand on the salt this time :( but we always come here when we visit!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceMy son graduated from the University of Puget Sound and we chose Zoe to celebrate this event. All the appetizers were fantastic but the most memorable was the gnudi. Flavorful; melts in your mouth dish. I believe we had at least 3 plates of this wonderful dish. The duck and the flat iron steak was also outstanding. The chocolate Cree brûlée was the most memorable although we felt you could not go wrong with any of the desserts we ordered. We had a bottle of Chateau Latour de Bressan which is a great value for a young Margaux. It was our first visit to Zoe and our family of foodies rated the food as the best during our graduation stay in the Seattle-Tacoma area.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotGreat evening of food with fantastic setting and great service. Will definitely be back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe kitchen is churning outThe kitchen is churning out some of the finest cuisine in Seattle. Duck leg confit was delicious. We also had several small plates including the bolognese pasta-- all superb!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here, and will be back!We've had great experiences both times we've been to Restaurant Zoe. My wife and I came here for our anniversary, and then just recently took a friend from the East coast there on a short visit and she loved it as well. Fantastic bartender and excellent, attentive, informative waitstaff. We're looking forward to going again!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual eleganceThe savory dishes were truly masterful, refinely complex and full of yum. Depending on where I attacked the plate I got a different yet complementary flavor that was clearly extremely well designed. I highly recommend the tasting menu served only on certain days.
I must add however, since the 5 savory courses were so wonderful I had very high expectations, and it fell short. Don't get me wrong that dessert was good, very good in fact. But not of the same caliber as the preceding dishes. It was clearly made by a different chef. The dessert was more common and somewhat monotone. It was just dessert and nothing to rave about like the other dishes.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and serviceExcellent meal and service was superb. we spent 5 hours dining, drinking and talking with friends. I highly recommend Restaurant Zoe!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe support staff with regardThe support staff with regard to water, tidbits, was exemplary but either the bartender or our waiter ran late. There were other instances where our party was left to scratch our collective heads waiting for a chance to flag some service down but, I must say, I am definitely looking forward to my return visit (loved my roasted endive salad).4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI've never been disappointedI've never been disappointed by the food at Zoe at either their original or their new location. It's always a treat. The service is generally good but on this particular occasion drink orders took ages. The end results were delicious but it was a little annoying. The food service was prompt and did not disappoint. The wild boar bolognese is amazing.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Dining ExperienceRestaurant Zoe is always a reliable destination for a lovely dining experience. Whether you are there for small bites at the bar with one of their expertly made cocktails or seated at a corner table, the staff make you feel welcomed and appreciated. Rob S. at the bar makes the best Negroni in town.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven't been to RestaurantHaven't been to Restaurant Zoe since they moved into this new location.
The food is as excellent, if not better, than before.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & great companyThis is a great place to take family and friends if they're in town visiting, to go out on a date, or to have a special night out with fiends. The food was delicious, and the pace of meal allowed me to enjoy my food and not feel rushed. Our waitress was also very friendly and knew what she was talking about when it came to the menu. If you're looking for a restaurant with romantic ambiance and delicious food and drinks, I would highly recommend Restaurant Zoe.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a superb dining experienceHad a superb dining experience at Restaurant Zoe. The wait staff was knowledgeable and gracious - offered us tastes of liquor from the distillery next door, helped us pick a fine wine. The food on the selected list was outstanding - we all felt we had the "best dish". I fell in love with the gnudi and the rhubarb trifle. We have put Zoe on our repeat list.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat small restaurant.CoolGreat small restaurant.Cool yet cozy setting with high ceilings and simple tables and chairs lets the food be the star.

Perfect timing for service and letting us enjoy our time together.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined at RestaurantWe have dined at Restaurant Zoe many times but this time we took our kids (boys, ages 7 and 10). They had wanted to dine at a "fancy" restaurant and while we have no plans on taking them to this caliber of restaurant on a regular basis it was an interesting and enjoyable experiment. Our waiter was great with the kids and the food, while not kid focused, was delicious as always and we all had a wonderful evening.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood for ThoughtOnce again I enjoyed everything about Zoe.

We got there early before the Friday night rush so we didn't have to wait to be seated. Our server was great - polite, answered all of our questions and brought us our cocktail almost immediately after we ordered them. The food was delicious and I thought the portion sizes were perfect. I would definitely recommend Zoe for any occasion.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite SeattleOne of my favorite Seattle restaurants - always a wonderful experience. I love their wild boar bolognese and order it almost every time I visit.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent....Excellent food and service overall and well worth a 1st and repeat visit.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dining experience wasOur dining experience was exceptional. Outstanding roasted endive salad and delicious chestnut soup. The bolognese
Was superb. And the cheesecake was wonderful. We had a great bottle of Bordeaux. Derek has built a superb
Wine list and he always stops by with friendly advice and good words. Service was excellent. Zoe has taken it to the next level!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and service.Wonderful food and service. There were only 3 other tables but still exceptional service. One person in the group didnt eat meat and the calamari was stuffed with sausage (to be fair they list the name of the sausage but none of us foodies knew that was sausage cause it wasnt called out in the menu). The server took that into account and gave us the ghnocci app for free (which was soooo good). I will definitely be going back soon.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRZ 2.0 is a winnerOur first time back to Zoe since they moved to the new location. Wonderful server (professional and friendly and knowledgeable; the trifecta.) Every dish we ordered was excellent, both in taste and appearance. And as in the past, they have a killer list of specialty cocktails that are worth sampling through. Thanks RZ 2.0 for the great experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love ZOE! We used to enjoyWe love ZOE! We used to enjoy the adventure of the former, downtown location, but the neighborhood did get scary toward the end of their tenure there. When they first opened in the present location, the food was very rich, and they had changed many of their standbys that we had come to love. Recently, however, they've added back some great salads and are bringing back our favorites (including the seared foie gras.) Service is always friendly and professional and the ambiance is surprisingly "downtown" for Capitol Hill, which we like.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!My wife and I tried Restaurant Zoe while on vacation in Seattle. What a great find! We greatly enjoyed the short rib and apple/cranberry crisp dessert.Also, when ordering a drink, ask for a "bartender roulette"! You won't be disappointed.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb dining experience.Superb dining experience. Hearty salads. . The short rib was tasty and the burger was delicious. We have dined here several times in the past year and it seems Zoe has it the groove on consistency and quality of food and service.2/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat late night diningGreat food, beautiful space and good service. We'll be back.12/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
