Food was good but bit overpriced. Overall we had a great time because the server was great and it is a great location for us. We usually eat at the bar with Diego who is an outstanding bartender and makes great drinks.

My husband and I had dinner at Chez Zee Restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Our spinach salad, New York strip steak, and the Gorgonzola and artichoke pizza were all delicious. The romantic evening was further enhanced with the beautiful vocals of jazz singer Diane Donovan, a local host at KMFA radio station. We didn’t have to go downtown to get delicious food, good service and wonderful music. Chez Zee frequently has great jazz musicians performing there. What a fantastic idea and a wonderful treat for Austinites!

Valentines Day dinner was wonderful. The Sea Bass was so incredibly delicious and the dessert sampler allowed for taste of the Lemon Rosemary, coconut and chocolate cake. One of the best meals I have had in a very long time.

When we got there they said we had no reservation and that there was a 45 minute to one hour wait. When we showed them our reservation from open table they changed their tune and said oh that’s because you said you were going to be late. That was completely false and doesn’t even make sense with the initial comment of you don’t have a reservation. Eventually they agreed we had a reservation and seated us but we felt we got placed at a not so desirable table. Once there the the server we had was awesome and did a great job. Probably the most disappointing was no one ever apologized and seemed to indicate it was somehow our fault. Food and service was good but doubt very much that we’d ever go back due to being treated badly like we didn’t have a reservation and no apology for their mistake. I’d pick another place that values their customers more.

Excellent menu choices, and hot food arrived in a timely manner. Special needs were met (no garlic!)
Waiter was knowledgable and accommodating, yet slightly flip in attitude. Attitude of greeter was rather brusque..yes we had reservations! Perhaps training on customer relations, and I know the majority of customers are of the golden age, but even more reason to show respect and patience! Great anniversary celebratory lemon thyme cake.

Love Chez Zee, they really do a great job. Only reason I put four stars instead of five is due to the noise and how crowded the restaurant is. They have so many options, all great, and the service is wonderful! Don't recall ever having food I disliked at Chez Zee, to the contrary, it's always, what am I going to have because there's so many wonderful options!

We had a large party to accommodate and the restaurant was excellent. From the time we made reservations to the actual dinner, we were super impressed with their service. The waitress was very attentive and had refills there before we asked. The food was excellent and there was not a complaint. Even my picky eater, finished her meal. The only drawback was the seating area was cramp and there was little room for the waitstaff to maneuver.

Chez Zee is always a great choice for special occasion or routine dining. It always looks like it's holiday time. The food is fine, if not breathtaking, and the staff are always efficient and friendly. The cakes are excellent, too. At brunch, there's almost TOO much food!

Great service but very loud. We did not care for the dessert we ordered so the waiter comped it. That was very nice of him. He also split our meal and didn't charge us extra. He went above and beyond to please us!

The Zeetini was refreshing. Abbott was our server, and she was very attentive and friendly. All of our orders were delivered promptly, the orders were correct, cold things were cold, and hot things were hot. The bread and olive oil were delicious. The ambiance was perfect for a ladies' night out. We had a wonderful time.

I made reservations the day before for 6. I arrived a few minutes early. The hostess said some of the party had arrived early, then took me to the middle of the room, pointed vaguely to a table and left. I looked around, not recognizing anyone . . . and walked back to the hostess station. She realized someone else had been seated at my table and quickly reseated me . . in the middle of the room. I was upset as the first table would have been perfect (it was against a wall in the corner), with two children also in attendance. It was difficult to converse with everyone as my father is hard of hearing. Although we had perfect service by our server (sorry I don't recall his name) and the food was good, I always appreciate a friendly greeting (which I don't remember getting) and being seen directly to my table. Most of the staff was very kind. . .the hostess needs some lessons on customer service.

Went for Sunday brunch with my husband and three kids. The food is fantastic and there were choices for everyone. The atmosphere is very nice but still comfortable and welcoming for kids. They had a magician walking around who blew the kids’ minds. We had a great meal and a great time.
