Diner Reviews
  • "We really enjoyed our dinner. fFoodwas very fresh,tasty and creative. Loved the plates."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We had lunch at Zee's before attending a performance at Shaw. They have a well-balanced menu and very nice wine list with wines from the region. The food was excellent and you can't beat the setting on their wrap-around porch surrounded by beautiful gardens. The servers were very attentive."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Disappointing. Tuna was overcooked. Small portion, more like an appetizer and not a main. Salad that came with it was good. Service was not good. Waiter did not know his wine, and I mean, at all. His attitude did not appeal, either."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food at Zees was exceptionally tasty and beautifully plated. Service was excellent and prices on target for the quality. We sat outside and it was most pleasant. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, well informed, polite and professional. It was a great dining experience."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • " I was very upset with the waiter. One of the meals I wanted to order identified that it came with seasonal vegetables, so I asked what was being served. He responded "whatever had come in that day" so I asked if he could check what was being served - he refused and then asked what vegetables I didn't like - I was very put off with his attitude. We had arrived at 6:00 for an 8:00 play, without having coffee and dessert we made it out at 7:55, everything took too long and my dinner chicken was overcooked."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Our second dining experience at Zees and we loved it. Food was great, service was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We enjoyed our lunch at Zee's very much last week. The patio is very pleasant and the food was fine. The location, a bit beyond all the shops but still within walking distance, made it more relaxing."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "If you close your eyes and think about the ideal locale for a brunch served on a wraparound porch, this is it. Zees has a fixed charge breakfast menu (i.e. all hot items are $14.95 including coffee). All items are presented well, served hot, and taste great. A terrific experience."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We had a lovely dinner on the patio. Service was excellent, food was fantastic and we really appreciated the vegetarian options that were available. We had a difficult time choosing. Ingredients were fresh and unique."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was great and our waiter was very helpful"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Had a 6:15 reservation so we could make a 8 pm show. Did not get our food until 7:35 and by then we had just cancelled our order. So we went to our show without dinner (just wine and bread) and this was supposed to be our anniversary dinner. Very surly waiter. Manager was apologetic but made no overtures to discount our bill or make it right."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The service was great, the food was great and view from the terrace was so pleasant. A great restaurant overall is highly recommended even for the most discriminating of diners."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The four of us thoroughly enjoyed all our dishes. Everything was tasty with some unusual interpretations. Service was friendly and unpretentious but still professional. The porch is a wonderful spot when the weather is right. We were able to carry on a conversation so the noise level was just right as well."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our Zee's burger and pasta special were great, and the wine list included a nice selection from the local vineyards. The restaurant staff was friendly and the service was efficient. The location is great - right across the street from the Festival Theatre. We had a wonderful time and recommend Zees Grill."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My wife and I are from the Falls and we find Zees to be one of the best dining experiences in the whole region. The food is outstanding and the servers are always knowledgeable, friendly and professionable. We have dined at Zees at least half a dozen times and have never had a bad experience. The consistency speaks volumes of the chef and management of this establishment. As a business administrator myself I appreciate how had that is to maintain and deliver great service every time."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Zees Grill is an excellent dining choice in Niagara on the Lake. Our meals were delicious and the serving staff were extremely competant. Several vegetarian options were available."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food was delicious. There is a vegetarian vibe that accompanies many of entrees. While not a vegetarian I enjoyed all aspects of dinner. Outdoor dining was beautiful in one of the most beautiful towns in the world"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It was quite warm and very humid the evening we dined (6:00 PM) at the restaurant. The AC's in the main dining room were either not working properly or they were unable to cool the space to a comfortable temperature. After complaining to our server, she told us there was no way they could adjust the temperature. After ordering our meals, it took quite some time (approximately 50 minutes) for us to get our food."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The burgers were very good however charging $3.00 to substitute fries for a tiny Caesar salad is a little much"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had no expectations, we booked it online, this was our anniversary dinner. Can't say enough about it. Our seating was against the railing outside on the porch, very nice. The food was outstanding , the service and friendliness of the staff was great. I would recommend this restaurant. We are a very picky couple! enjoy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "4 of us ate at Zees once again and we loved it. Food is spectacular, well presented and portions are plenty. Will definitely go again & recommend it to my friends."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Across the street from Festival Hall, friendly atmosphere and good food. Our first dinner was perfect. When we returned for a second dinner, the food was inconsistent and not as good as the first meal. Service is terrific, but menu is limited and it is difficult to arrange for any deviation from the set menu--we wanted a side order of a delicious cheese, not possible."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The menu isn't extensive but everything on it is original and well thought out. The watermelon and strawberry salad was a standout appetizer; perfect for a summer evening on the terrace. All the entrees were excellent, with the scallops and tuna being particularly good. Service is attentive but relaxed after the post-theater crowd depart. The wines by the glass were a bit hit or miss but then again, Niagara wines are hit or miss . . . Overall, this place is one of the highlights of the Niagara-on-the-Lake dining scene."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "After a great dinner at Zee's I can understand why it is so highly rated for dining in NOTL. It would be well worth the drive from any surrounding city as well. After a week of "fine dining" I opted for the burger. It was terrific. My companions ordered full meals and were both very happy with their choices. I've always been a fan of Charles Inn and this second restaurant will now be part of my list of great spots to eat when I am in Niagara on the Lake. It's also very popular as an after theatre spot."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The lunch was great. We sat on the porch and the ambience was casual and charming. We have gone to Zees often."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Very convenient for the Shaw theatre. Wines are expensive at about $9.00 for a 5 oz glass."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "But kind of small sized portions for the price. Friendly staff accommodated outdoor seating which was great. There was a large group there that same night and some of the guests were smoking outside and we could smell it and it was not good"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Enjoyed a great meal in a very romantic setting - Foodie approved! Great selection of both meat & vegetarian options, complemented by a great wine list. All tied up by wonderful service! We had a beautiful evening - thank you! Will always visit when we are back and until we will spread the good word!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Provided a very nice dinner experience. The food was quite good, and the service was outstanding."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Excellent service - great food - and we love the veranda - easy access to theatres."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "When in Niagara on the Lake I always have one dinner at Zees (always on the porch). Two reasons: the ambience and the food. Half the credit for the ambience has to go to the town of Niagara on the Lake (NOTL), sitting on Zees's veranda all you can see is the marvellous hortidulture of NOTL. The food never disappoints. I would not recommend Zees before going to the theatre, to avoid feeling rushed."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Food was amazing, great presentation, good wine list from Niagara and the wolf, definitely to consider for a foodie experience !"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The best thing to be said about Zees is that it is across from the Shaw theatre, and thus convenient if going to a show. The food was O.K. but the husband does not want to return because he did not like the choices on the lunch menu. The service was slow, but we anticipated it would be because of the pre theatre lunchtime rush. The server was very pleasant."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Right across from the Festival Theatre is Zee's Grill, with inside, veranda, and patio dining. We were delighted with our choices which were inventive and tasty. Niagara wines are featured on the wine list. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Have eaten there many times. Great food, easy walk to Shaw theaters. Look forward to going again."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This restaurant is located directly across from the Shaw Festival's main theatre. We had lunch there before the show and it was enjoyable. Three of us had the reuben sandwich but the general consensus was that there wasn't enough sauerkraut on it. The fourth person had the chicken club sandwich and said that it was good. For dessert, I had the lemon ice; it was 4 scoops of lemon sorbet (too much) and some frozen fruit that you could break a tooth on. Perhaps the fruit could have been thawed. Two of us had the cheesecake and it was delicious. Overall, it was a nice lunch and we would go back."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant! Great food and service. Dined on the veranda and it was stunning.. loved this place! we went for dinner and we were very satisfied. Also if your looking for a place with healthy options in niagara on the lake this is your best bet. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Our lunch at Zee's - pre-theatre - was relaxed but on schedule for theatre and the food was absolutely exquisite in quality, taste and presentation."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The entire town of Niagara on the lake was blacked out, so the kitchen was closed. :("
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Excellent food and service and wonderful view. It definitely enhanced our experience at Niagara-on-the-lake. I highly recommend Zees Grill!"
