The only negative thing I can say is that the menu online offered truffle fries with the Friday night Prime Rib special and they did not have them available.....the menu online had not been updated. The waiter was very nice and made up for it by bringing us a plate of their regular fries, which we enjoyed. The food was great, service great, and we will be back again!

Service and ambiance are nice, but the food was fair. We had Lucinda's Basil Cheese Torta as an appetizer, and the cheese spread was presented as a large chunk of creme chese wrapped in provolone, which was not very attractive. The prime rib and flatiron steak lacked flavor.

Overall, the restaurant is ok, but nothing special. Would not return.

It was delightful to be able to eat at Chez Zee's again! A dear friend took me out to eat for my birthday and he hadn't been to Chez Zee's in about four years. It had only been six months for me! Both of us had a great meal and were delighted with the Lemon Torte desert offered for my birthday meal!

so glad to see this place open again for dine in. Food is always consistent- think they are still building up staff but if you keep in mind that they are "re-opening" and service may be slower, you will still have a great time.

Chez Zee is the perfect place to meet a friend for dinner on the way downtown. We sat on the patio and enjoyed wine, appetizers (the fried pickles are always a hit) and a nice meal. My wife selected the lamb chop special. Not only did she enjoy it, we all thought it looked wonderfully presented as well.

Fabulous service, company, and food. Although I choked on the salmon, that was my fault for trying to talk and eat at the same time. Haha It really was delicious. Such a cute place to go.

I brought my best clients, Chez Zee is one of our favorites. The service was good, the food was quite good as well. I ordered Tequila Lime Chicken, and would have enjoyed it much more if the chicken, rice and broccoli had been hot instead of almost cold.

Always love brunch at Chez Zee - they continue to practice covid safety protocols with spacing of indoor tables, which we greatly appreciate. The music was an added bonus.

We were celebrating a friend's milestone birthday and it was great! The food and service were excellent, although the temperature was cold. The live pianist was the icing on the cake. Would definitely go again.

It was our daughter’s 20th birthday. The food was excellent- delish! The special of the night was prime rib. It was hearty. Hostess, waiter, & wait staff were very friendly and on point. There was love piano music. The ambiance is lovely (beautiful lighting inside). Made reservations ahead of time & they even had a special, personalized Happy Birthday sign on the table. All the food was fresh, excellent portions and savory. The gluten free birthday cake (chocolate torte) was incredible! It was a very memorable night and we will cherish it forever. I highly recommend this very crafty (you really feel the hard work put into this original establishment), gustatory gem. As my daughter said, it really had “the vibe.” I really appreciate hard, original work and you can feel it here at every level.

Our first concern was Covid safety and they did an outstanding job. The restaurant was quiet except for some very nice piano playing, and the tables were well separated.
The wine choices were a bit limited (no Italian Pinot Grigio) but good otherwise. The food and the service was outstanding, and we will definitely return frequently.
