Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and drinks for brunch. Ask for Joey and he'll take care if you."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated his birthday here. It was our first time eating here, we had previously been to the rooftop. It is similar to a Brazilian steakhouse. The salad bar was amazing! I am a vegetarian so I had tofu and veggies for my "meat". My husband tried all the meat. However, we sometimes had a hard time understanding what the chefs were saying the meat was, due to the noise level. Our waitress was excellent and we enjoyed the wine selection as well!"

  • "One of the best meals of my life. Our waitress Anna was great as well."

  • "We celebrated my sister's birthday here and it was amazing. Our waiter, Richard, was super attentive and personable. Lemon berry nojito is a must."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food, atmosphere, service ...all amazing! Just slightly noisier than my wife and I would have wanted for our particular occasion and wish they had a bit more variety of seafood. We plan to bring friends and family here soon."

  • "Us sisters (8) were celebrating our next to the youngest sister Madeleine's birthday. At 50' Madeleine is still very loving, emotional and now a vegan! So where else would I suggest. Zed451 was the perfect place for all to feast happily. At Zed451 so much attention was poured on her from the ZedMobile ride, right down to a specially made 'non-diary' dessert that floored her. She was elated, she said she felt like a celebrity. She and everyone at the table plans to spread the word and return. So look out, we'll be backkkkkk! Thank you all, 2212SistersJ"

  • "One of the best rooftops around. Comfortable and beautiful. All the fun and filling up of a Brazillian steakhouse with a wider selection of food choices. Good value for what you get and a very friendly staff"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The salad bar was adequate and after that it was disappointing. Perhaps because we were seated in the furthest back corner in with large parties we were forgotten about. It was too loud and basically, the staff was dysfunctional. Probably good for a large group, not a table for 2."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "VERY relaxing atmosphere and great staff. The entries were very good and the salad buffet items above average. While not a "five star" experience, ZED451 was fun and more than adequate for a normal weekend or a group function. Will definitely visit again."

  • "Zed451 is my favorite place on earth! I've only been there once for brunch, but I will DEFINITELY be back!"

  • "This was such an awesome dining experience. I can't wait to return. I have been to Brazilian Style Steakhouses before but this one has an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication that the others cannot acheive. The waitstaff were all terrific and entertaining. I really can't wait to get back. oh yeah, the food was top-notch as well."

  • "We were there on a Friday night with a group of 9. The salad experience was ok, nothing to rave about. The meat that was brought around was ok, you can get a lot better at a decent steakhouse. We definitely noticed that the servers brought an abundance of sausage and chicken, which was nothing to rave about, we had to ask for beef. And we ordered a bunch of sides, hoping they'd be better than the salad bar, they weren't. I'd rate it mediocre at best. We won't be back. Not worth the money. I think it's a novelty, but not sustainable. The restaurant was half empty the whole night. One of our guests had requested five restaurants, a week out this was the only one where we could get a reservation. That explains it all."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "It was abundant without losing the delicious. So many diverse options bring a multitude of flavors. That goes for the salad bar and the main course selection. The sides were savory and good enough to share... If you want too... The desert was awesome, we got a bread pudding which was the best I have ever had. The service was perfect, the entire group never has an empty glass and everyone was polite and seemed to want to be there which always gives us as diners a good vibe. I want to go back and do it all over again. Forget that, I will be back and do it all over again. Overall, it was a great dinner with superb service."

  • "I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. I had so many great places to choose from. Great reviews for Zed451 rooftop won me over. It was definitely a great experience. Food and service was outstanding. Went upstairs to the rooftop for few drinks, cozy and very romantic atmosphere! Definitely will be back!"

  • "I was out for my parents anniversary dinner. I was put in charge of finding a restaurant for the meal. I could not be happier with the choice I made. ZED451 was an great atmosphere for the occasion. We got drinks on the rooftop first then went down to our table in the dining room, it really was a great way to go about our meal. Drinks were delicious on the rooftop. Food was absolutely outstanding we left as full as possible and enjoyed every bite. The service was great as well. Very attentive to all needs throughout the meal."

  • "On a random Friday night, my boyfriend and I decided to go out dinner, but wanted exceptional food with a rooftop. After a little research from Yelp and Zagat, WE FOUND IT! It had a amazing reviews, but could it stand up to the challenge? IT DID!!! The food was flavorful, tender, an simply mouth watering. Thank you!"

  • "This place is truly a treat! Designed for parties of all sizes- be sure to go with an appetite."

  • "The whole experience was great there. The only reason I did not max out all the star ratings is because as great as this play was, I've had better at a similar concept restrauant. This place is still great, especially for a romantic or special occasion evening. It's worth the money and the time to give it a try."

  • "ZED 451 is a Brazilian-style restaurant with some interesting twists, not the least of which is a really different and extremely tasty "salad bar." The variety of meats that are brought on a stick to your table is outstanding -- everything from steak to crab cakes, from chicken to salmon. Service is superb, very attentive waiter and excellent table staff to make the meal enjoyable. Food was very good. This restaurant is a fun place and a great change of pace from the usual steak house fare."

  • "Zed451 was recommended to us for brunch by a friend that lives in Chicago and we will be returning every time we travel through the city. It's a bit pricey but worth it! Great for a special occasion and very romantic for a date. The rooftop bar looks nice too, although we did not check that out. Hands down, this was the best brunch I've had in a long time!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We usually love this place, and have been here on numerous occasions. But on this last outing on a Monday night, the salad bar was not up to its usual standard. The offerings did not seem as varied as usual and there was no seafood. It made us wonder if they were scrimping a little. Also, sadly, there was hardly anyone there. Admittedly it was early on a Monday night, but still. We hope this was just a blip on the radar. When Zed is on its game, it is way more creative and interesting than the usual Brazilian steak house type of place."

  • "I had a party of 4 for lunch to celebrate my uncle's birthday. The food was very good. Our server Jasmine was awesome. There were enough fish and chicken selections for those who did not eat beef or pork."

  • "I recently brought my significant other there to celebrate his birthday. We dined for brunch and we had a great experience. Our host Richard was very attentive and pleasant. The birthday presentation of desserts with a candle sealed the experience. The staff who brought out the food were pleasant as well. It was a great start to a great day."

  • "I especially enjoyed the variety of flavors at the harvest around the fire - great mix of flavors. I could have dined on that alone!"

  • "Food, service, everything was top notch. The only thing I would change is the loud music at times."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious! Only disappointment was that you can no longer order dessert on the roof. We didn't know that."

  • "Went for son's college graduation. Great food, cool decor, mostly excellent service. The gaps in service were valet parking, "too busy, sorry not available". Really?? Drinks, took about 15 minutes to get our cocktails, "sorry we only have one bartender". ... On a Friday night no less. The rest of the service was really good, including the vegetable brochettes they made for my vegan daughter and the signature graduation dessert for my son. All in all a success, but neither of the "gaps" were excusable for a restaurant of that price and quality."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our server whose name I believe is Jason didn't ask if we were there for a special occasion. He was a bit dry and short, not rude or mean, just maybe a little bland. I was surprising my husband for our 3 year anniversary. And even though the cooks did decorate a plate for us saying "Happy 30th anniversary", lol, It was after I went up to the hostess to ask her during our meal if she could let our server know that it was a special date and that I wanted something nice written on our dessert plate. Our server however would have known that had he asked if we were there for a special occasion. Other than that the food was amazing. And I really can't complain about anything else."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "tastes better than this. The meat was oversalted, salads were soggy, our waiter let us know right away that she was just out of training. Horrible waste of money. The website menu doesn't highlight the fact that it's a buffet."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "It's definitely the service that stands out the most. The ambiance is perfect and the settings are done wonderfully. I drove up from Indianapolis and brought my husband and father for Father's Day. They were treated exactly as I had hoped. Impeccable food. Brilliant selection. Deliciously yummy mimosas. I definitely recommend trying this place!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Went for the 10am-2pm Sunday Brunch for Fathers Day. Only charged the usual $34 per person; no mark up for Fathers Day. Excellent Brunch with Harvest Table (salads, bread, desserts); and frequent visits from the servers. Fantastic Cajun Maple Bacon. Roast Turkey, Ham, Sirloin, Crab Cake Benedict. You name it. Small Mimosas only $3. Went to check out the roof top after Brunch. Nice view; and would be great on a warm Summer evening. Highly Recommended!"

  • "Food was very good, great atmosphere, and polite servers and staff. Awesome roof deck with a different menu so will probably try that some other time. It's also a nice way to start or end the night by having a drink on the roof."

  • "There were 6 of us in town for NEOCON. I (female) was entertaining clients(all women) and was apprehensive because I thought 6 women ,who normally eat very light wouldn't enjoy this dining experience. Was I ever Wrong! We had a great time and ate way too much because it was mostly great."

  • "The food was amazing. I told everyone there they should be ashamed of themselves for making food that scrumptious. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. We went there for my moms birthday and she had a great experience. They even brought out a decorated plate with "happy birthday" in chocolate accompanied by desserts. All I can say is "amazing"."
