My husband and I recently found
this restaurant and it's very close for us so we were excited to see the great reviews. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. We both really enjoyed our app';s and entrees. The dessert was also delicious. My only issue was that they charged 20 dollars for a martini. I think that is about 5 dollars more then even some of the best restaurants in Toronto. It also was not a great Martini. We won't order them again."

I booked Zee's about a month ago
because, quite frankly, Rodney's Oyster House, was full. I checked the internet and found that Zee's was mid town and it served oysters. Thought I would try it. Was very glad I did. The restaurant is small and cozy. The brick walls are surprisingly warm and relaxing. The servers are well trained and well versed with the menu. And the food is extremely well prepared, innovative, and flavourful. I went back this past Friday (April 11, 2014), and was once again very impressed. A definite 4-star rating in my restaurant book!"

This is a dining experience with
character. The food was fresh and interesting and well prepared. It was beautifully presented and the service was excellent...attentive but not intrusive. The reservation was honoured with no wait time and the entire experience was memorable."

With a craving for a quality
seafood dinner, I came here with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. I didn't know whether to dress up or go casual to the restaurant. We played it casual, but could have easily dressed up for this place. You're good either way. Great ambiance and service. We were pretty new to the whole oyster scene and our waiter walked us through how to eat it, the flavors and textures to look for. It's as important as enjoying a glass of fine wine. The diver scallops were ridiculously good. Black cod was so fresh and tasty. We also had the tacos and seviche as appetizers and were some of the most tasty apps I've ever had. Seriously, the freshness and taste was divine. I will definitely come back here again."

Zee grill combines the flavor of a
local neighborhood restaurant with a great quality of food found at high end eateries."

ZEE GRILL WAS A TRUE FIND. THE
FOOD IS EXCELLENT. THE WINE EXCELLENT. THE MENU IS SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE. THE FOOD QUALITY (I LOVED THE POKE SALAD. THE SCALLOPS WOW.) THE FOOD QUALITY IS VERY MUCH ON PAR WITH THE "HOT SPOTS" OF TORONTO. YET THE PRICE AND THE NEED TO BE SCENE HYPE IS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. THUS YOU GET GREAT FOOD, GREAT VALUE AND A TABLE AT A DECENT TIME WITHOUT TOO MUCH TROUBLE. . ITS LIKE SOMETHING YOU WOULD FIND ON A WELL ESTABLISHED SIDE ALLEY IN PARIS OR ROME..."

The ambience was nice, the food
was good and the service was good, but the portions were too tiny and I left wondering why it was so expensive."

This is truly the best food,
ambiance and serviced restaraunts I've been to in Toronto! Outstanding home made everything from the kitchen is spectacular!"
Dined on 3/6/2014
I love this place. The service is
reliable...and sometimes outstanding. The food is amazing, and the ambiance is hard to match in this neighbourhood. Dim lights and warm brick walls make for a very inviting space. Great for a couple's night out or a group of 4-6. Highly recommend it!"

My second time at this place and
it impressed me more than the first. The place has a very laid back personality. I have to say that the staff added to the ambience and made it a great night. There was a sense of pride by the waiter on the quality of the place."
Dined on 2/27/2014
We have been to Zee Grill before
as it is in our neighbourhood. The food is very good - fresh and tasty. The room is very loud but that wouldn't discourage us from going again. Our waiter interrupted several times to check on the food which was a little more than called for but that is a minor fault. Overall, we really enjoyed it and will definitely return."

Went here recently for valentine's
dinner. It was a pleasant experience to say the least. Just to tell you about the highlights, we loved the appetizers kob salad and calamari. All the fish were cooked perfectly, and seasoned well. All the deserts such as ice-cream and soufflé are made in-house as well. Our server was kind, smart and quick on her feet. We didn't have to look around for her attention or ask for anything because she brought us everything we needed before we asked for it. This was impressive considering it was valentines day with a full house of diners looking for a perfect evening and shows the owner's effort and attention that goes into running this restaurant. In all, we left zee grill smiling and satisfied."

Pleasantly surprised! The food was
vibrant and the staff was great. Couldn't ask for a better atmosphere for that special night."

The four of us enjoyed our
appetizers and main courses. Lobster bisque and fish tacos were delicious. The Chilean sea bass was perfectly cooked with bok choy and pot stickers. It was a decent sized portion and I felt I'd had a very healthy meal. Service was excellent. It was very quiet and cozy on a cold winter evening. We'll definitely go back there."

I found the menu enlightening. The
meal was not full of salt. the flavours were so clean and individual. I will be back in heartbeat. I wish this restaurant was closer to home."

If you like fish, than this
restaurant is a must. It has great service and good list of wines."

This restaurant has been a family
favorite for years. This time we were celebrating the birthday of our younger son. As usual, we had a great time. The lobster bisque, which three of us had, was wonderful. I had the diver scallops, which were very tasty; the others had either the cod or the sea bass. Praise all around. The desserts, apple tart or creme caramel, were also excellent. All in all, a fine dinner. Congratulations to Chef Eckhardt and his staff!"

You can always count on the Zee
Grill for a wonderful dining experience with friends. The atmosphere is like a Manhattan seafood grill in the heart of North Toronto. Jac and his crew have some wonderful creation to meet the desire of your tastes and diet. They have a wonderful wine list and a great selection of beer from Coors Light to interesting micros. A must try is the Zee Grill salad. Naturally the Lobster is a sure bet, but you won't go wrong on this menu. Enjoy."

This was my second visit within a
month. I recommended zee grill to my sister. We shared an extremely small crab cake appetizer which was not hot and we felt was too expensive. Our scallops were large and tasty however they too were not hot. The noodle veggies were delicious with the potato but they too were not warm enough. The flour less chocolate cake was excellent. Our server was nice enough but not as attentive/interactive as I had experienced there before. Would give this visit a 7 ."

My mother in law was visiting for
the holidays and before she left we took out for lobster. She absolutely loved it. It was perfect. Atmosphere is wonderful. It is cozy with beautiful stone walls and candle lit. Service was excellent. Very professional, kind, helpful and efficient. My mother in law wants me to take her again next year! Cheers."

First time at restaurant, dining
with my wife and long-time friends. Great food, service (staff very busy yet attentive), ambience (liked the exposed brick on the interior and just-right lighting) - we couldn't ask for anything more, except warmer weather! A pleasure to meet Jacques, co-owner with his wife."

I had the roasted
lobster--terrible. Too much sauce on it; lobster was over-cooked. Didn't taste at all like lobster. Tried to exchange the vegetable (endive?) for something I would like, and wasn't allowed to."

Phebe's Zee Grill has a light
touch with seafood - deliciously sauced & appropriately seasoned - great presentation. And they give diners the time to savour the food & chat. We love this place."

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

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."

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."
Dined on 11/23/2013
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)"
Dined on 11/21/2013
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."

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!!!!"
