Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "A friend and I were supposed to having dinner at the restaurant across the street and happened upon zed451. We loved the ambiance and the food was awesome! The drinks were very good as well. Our server was awesome! He made excellent recommendations for us."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "I surprised my husband for Father's Day. He was impressed, happy and full at the conclusion of our meal. He mentioned that he did not want the day to end. The attentive service, excellent food and informed wait staff only enhanced our experience."

  • "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."

  • "I dined for my 30th Birthday and I absolutely loved it! It was great for my party of 14 and they put me in a semi-secluded area. The food and service was amazing! I will definitely go back as soon as I can!"

  • "My girlfriends and I visited Zed451 two weeks ago for a Sunday brunch. The food selection was fantastic aside for a few of the meat items that were too spicy for our Latin palates. After brunch we went upstairs to the rooftop and enjoyed some more mimosas. The bartender was very attentive and friendly. Overall great experience."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "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"."

  • "We went here on a Friday night, 8 people total. We made sure we had reservations. Our waiter was initially very attentive, explained how it works etc, took our drink orders promptly. He got some of the drinks order wrong. Zed is similar to a Brazillian steakhouse. The salads and first course were phenomenal. The charcuterie has really good meats, cheese and spread. The salads were a little bit limited when it comes to selection compared to Brazzas and Fogo, but nevertheless tasty and fresh. The issue was the steak servers were slow and took a loooong time to get to our table. We had to ask our waiter repeatedly to have them come over. Also the crab cakes were so-so. Looked at the rooftopmenu and will try this next time instead of buffet."

  • "The meat tasted delicious and not too salty. I was pleasantly surprised to see catfish, salmon and scrimp on the skewers. I would have liked more variety of side dishes and harvest table. The wait staff was friendly, always smiling and gave exceptional service. I will definitely go again just based on excellent wait staff service."

  • "Zed 451 is unlike any other restaurant in town. Unique concept (love the rocks!), interesting combinations of very fresh food, beautiful, open ambience, and servers who make you feel like they really appreciate your business. This is our anniversary tradition. A true gem! "

  • "We were treated to great service. Very accommodating to our vegetarians and the kiddo at our table. Everything but the venison was amazing, and even that was good to but the sauce was a bit overpowering for the meat. Only complaint was it was a bit warm in there due to the fire pit."

  • "Amazing food, drinks, and atmosphere! If you're in Chicago you need to go Zed451, you may shy away because of the price but it is absolutely worth and you will enjoy every bite!"

  • "There were 10 of us celebrating a special birthday. The service was fantastic. The drinks were tasty! The buffet was delicious... especially the kale salad and mushroom dish! The servers were attentive and professional when the meat started coming around. If you are a vegetarian... I would not choose this place! The crab cakes were my favorite! Best part of Zed.... after dinner drinks on the roof top deck! With so many roof tops around, this one is still a hidden treasure! Lounge seating, bar stools, and fire pits in a quaint and uncrowded setting! I will be back!"
