  • "I like Zed's and look forward to going again. Food is good and very nice amience. Service is always above average"

  • "Visiting Austin for a weekend getaway, dining out is one of the trip highlights. We were very pleased with our menu selections. My husband loved the fried chicken with spinach horseradish smashed potatoes. I liked the presentation of crab croquettes but would have liked a bit more spice and a bit more of the accompanying sauce. The creme brûlée was excellent and plenty to share. Next time I want to enjoy the outside venue. We would definitely recommend Zed's."

  • "We love Zeds. Its one of the best mid/upscale restaurants in the area. The nightly specials are always creative. An excellent choice for couples, group parties or business lunches. We really enjoy it. Highly recommend Zeds."

  • "Went to see my friend's band, Pearl, play...and wow, what a wonderful evening....the band of course was great...but the evening on the deck would have been great without the music....sorry Louisa! The ambience is wonderful...and the food was outstanding...especially the bacon wrapped scallops, the crab croquettes and the spinach mashed potatoes....Unfortunately our server was a bit nonchalant and despite our ordering drinks and food, failed to stop by as often as I thought he should have! But I will give him and the restaurant another chance....soon!"

  • "Zed's definitely made my wife's birthday a special event. The ambience was romantic, the food was fantastic & the service was great! This was our first time at Zed's but it will not be the last. I was so impressed that I recommended Zed's to my manager and he is taking his wife there this weekend to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Great job everyone!"

  • "Went for early evening dinner. Sat out on the patio. DJ was playing and the music was just right. Not too loud, not too distracting. Could actually carry on conversation without having to talk loudly. Wait staff was great! Food was fabulous! Pork Chop was cooked to perfection. Tender and juicy. Drinks were great. Loved everything about the place. Great dining experience."

  • "We went for Mother's Day brunch and I was not disappointed. There was a wide a selection for both adults and kids and all the food was very good. I would return again for a special brunch but plan on going for a regular brunch as I know I won't be disappointed. I'm so glad Zed's reopened and brought in some awesome cook(s). You should go and support this place. "

  • "I don't even know where to begin. Should I start with the fact that everyone looked confused when I said I had a reservation? Should I start with how un-accomodating they were when we requested a table inside? Should I start with the waitress making excuses about my mother-in-law "just having to deal" with the sun in her eyes? Maybe I should start with the bloody mary that was ordered and never delivered but still managed to make it onto the bill. Or better yet, I can start with the fact that we were left sitting at our table with nobody ever bothering to let us know that we didn't have the option of ordering off the menu (it was a brunch buffet only)."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I booked a reservation for brunch on Mother's Day. There was no indication on the website or when the restaurant called to verify the reservation that they were only offering a buffet. Once we arrived there weren't menus or signage to indicate how much the buffet was. The food was so-so and we paid $30 per person plus $4 per beverage. We won't come back after spending $200 for 4 adults and 2 kids, we could have given our mothers a steak dinner instead."

  • "I took my parents out for their birthday celebration. It was the first visit for all of us. The food was great! Excellent and attentive staff, though it was not very crowded at the time. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Zed's now has live music on select dates so the scenic view is even better now. The food and service continue to impress!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "This is a beautiful restaurant and the outdoor seating was very peaceful and nice. They have a great wine and drink list, I tried a new-to-me Scotch. The tuna appetizer was amazing and my bacon wrapped scallops were perfect. The service was impeccable. The only negative was that the chef did not have a medium rare or rare cut of prime rib. I had a wonderful birthday celebration and we will definitely be returning for another evening."

  • "Great value and delicious food! We would definitely recommend Zed's for brunch, lunch, and happy hour. Hope to try them out for dinner soon."

  • "I took the family (extended family actually) to Zed's for Easter Brunch. We had made reservations a few weeks ahead of time, and were seated immediately. Our waitress took more than a few minutes to come by for drink orders. We got in line for the brunch buffet, and apparently just in time, as by the time we got back to our table the line was ridiculously long. Members of our party that went back for seconds took up to 20 minutes to get through the line. Oh, the waitress...didn't see her again...had to hunt her down for the check. The food was great, but the buffet line was poorly managed (should have been two lines), and then there was our M.I.A. waitress. "

  • "We were at Zed's a couple of years ago for Easter Brunch, we liked it enough to try to go back again the next year but Zed's was closed. When we found out it was open again we booked another Easter Brunch for the 7 of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the buffet choices and seating outside with the Jazz trio. It was such a nice day. Also, moving the buffet outside was a great idea, more room. The only downside was the shrimp and grits weren't on the buffet as it was a couple of years ago. I was looking forward to it, but the shrimp cocktail was a good alternate. (Hope to see shrimp and grits next year.) Overall the family was very happy and Zed's will be our go-to Easter brunch place."

  • "Excellent brunch menu. Outstanding music by Jeff Lofton (his trio). Fabulous experience."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The items on the menu are excellent and the staff are very welcoming. We take a walk though the nearby trail leading to the restaurant before our meal. I would only change the opening time on Sunday from 11 to 10."

  • "Great neighborhood find! Food was delicious and the service was very friendly and helpful as well as attentive. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Nice restaurant. The waitress was very attentive and the food and drinks were good. The one issue we had was the long wait time for our food. There were just a few diners in the restaurant section, yet it took well over a 45 minutes to get our food. We experienced this long wait time with the previous Zed's and was hoping for faster service with the new Zed's, but unfortunately this still seems to be a problem."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We went for my husband's birthday. It was a very nice evening. The only thing I regret is not making my reservation after dark.. I think the atmosphere would probably have been more romantic because I saw they had strings of light around the outdoor railing and candles on the table so I'm guessing they have a different vibe at night.. Next time, I'll make sure to do that.."

  • "We were in Austin for four days and ate there twice once for lunch and second for dinner both times the service and the food was fantastic great pacing nice restaurant quality food and we had a five-year-old with us."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Excellent brunch. The food was very flavorful. Service was very good. Would have given 5 stars, but we had a long wait to get our bill. I would definitely go again and recommend it."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Good not great food and very good service. The bar was busy but the restaurant was about 40-50% capacity. Great for happy hour"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We were fortunate enough to try a preview of the crab croquets for the Spring menu. Delicious! And of course had the Thirsty goat steamed clams and the grilled artichoke which I love! Terrific!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I had a late evening reservation @ 9:30 pm. We ordered salads almost immediately instead of an appetizer. Our waiter comes by after about 8 minutes and ponders that our salads should have arrived and went to retrieve them. We finished or salads about 9:50. After a considerable wait, at 10:02 we were informed they botched my rib eye and our order was being redone. And we sat, and sat, and sat. Finally at 10:19 we were served. It took 17 minutes to plate a medium rare rib eye and a salmon dish. Not once did a manager come by. It took 50 minutes to get our food. And it wasn't even very good. My $36 steak was half gristle. No discount for messing up our order, no offer of a free dessert. no acknowledgement that there was a problem. NEVER AGAIN."

  • "From day one, Zed's never disappoints...BUT there have been several changes with their menu. As soon as I find something I love and tell everybody about it, they've changed the menu and don't offer anymore. That is my one chief complaint with Zed's. While they've been closed for a while for remodeling, and while I knew the menu would perhaps change again....and it did, I was not happy with their current selections. Just seems like there's not a lot to offer or enough variety... or nothing jumping off the menu saying... "Ooo... I wanna try THAT!" I should say. Maybe it's that way because they're trying to reach a certain clientele perhaps. In the end the bacon wrapped scallops and crispy brussle sprouts were delicious!"

  • "I cant believe I hadn't found Zed's already! the server was wonderful, the food outstanding and we will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Zed's has become one of our favorite places. The setting/view is gorgeous, service is attentive and food is tasty and affordable. Would love to have live music and maybe rotating specials to compliment the brunch menu! We'll be regulars for sure!"

  • "Went there with family, including a young child, for Valentine's Day dinner. Showed up around 8:45 PM for a 9:00 PM reservation and were shown to our table right away Live band was playing and was very good; not overpowering, allowed for easy conversation at our table in the main dining room. We shared the 'Dinner for Two' filet mignon/lobster dinner; lobster was OK but a bit chewy, both steaks were ordered rare, one came out rare, the other was more medium. Maitre d' suggested dry wine; the wine turned out to be a little spicy and dry, went well with the filet. Price was a little high so won't be going back right away but we are looking forward to a return trip eventually."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The Valentine's Day ambiance was very romantic and the meal was amazing, as always. The double-chop pork chops couldn't have made me any happier. Tender and juicy and enough to fill me up. The restaurant has always been a "hidden gem" of mine, but I'm hoping that it becomes a well-received gem to the businesses parks and neighborhoods around it."

  • "My boyfriend and I went there for Valentines. It was a fabulous experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "V-Day special was $75 for filet mignon, a side, salad, rolls, lobster claw to share, and a dessert to share. The wait staff were great, the ambiance was lively (but music is too loud if you sit close to bar). House salad was excellent. They make their own lemon vinaigrette dressing. The salad has bits of cranberry, feta cheese, nuts as well as salad field greens. Steak was melt in your mouth. We both chose the smashed garlic potatoes as our side. The dessert was chocolate mousse to share. The only issue I had was that I booked the reservation online, and I asked for a table off to the side. But the staff took us to the LEAST PRIVATE TABLE IN THE RESTAURANT."

  • "My wife and I went to Zed's for the first time on Valentine's Day, and it was terrific. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We really enjoyed ourselves and am very happy to have stumbled on this restaurant! They have an outdoor patio overlooking the river that is really nice!"

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a great time at Zed's. the service was great and the food even better. I must say the steak was one of the most tender steaks any one of us ever had. We had basically a three course meal, and enjoyed every course. Perfect Valentine's day dinner!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This restaurant has done a 180 turn for the better since it reopened recently. The food is much better, the service is professional and friendly, the view and grounds remain wonderful as they always were. The chef and many of the wait staff have been imported from the recently closed Cool River Cafe and the result is a new menu without the weird and terrible food items the old Zed's served, as well as an incredibly good new wait staff. Kudos to the owner for making this bold change! I'd recommend Zed's to everyone now."
