Chez Zee has been one of my favorite brunch spots in Austin for years! They have consistently excellent food, a huge selection of food and drink and such a lovely waitstaff including an awesome piano player. The ambiance is fun and whimsical and just puts a smile on your face. In addition to brunch, they have an excellent lunch and dinner menu and are known for absolutely amazing desserts that you can eat in or take out. Love, love, love Chez Zee!

We were two sets of parents celebrating the following day’s engagement of our children! Everything was perfect, and the Groom-to-be’s out of town parents thought the restaurant was great! The piano player is such a wonderful touch, and the level of the music is perfect for dinner conversation. Our fish dishes were cooked perfectly, while the pork dishes were a bit overdone, though they still had terrific flavor. We absolutely LOVE Chez Zee, and will be back real soon! Highly recommend for a true and uniquely Austin experience.

Always a pleasure to eat in the whimsical Chez Zee. We enjoyed pancakes, French toast, eggs, potatoes and meat. The courtesy croissants and strawberry butter are a hit.

My Bestest girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday and our belated Christmas together and we sat out on the middle outside porch and it was just so lovely we really enjoyed our food and we will be back it was just the best ambience
And our waitress Alma was the best she was just so great thank you so much
Thank you Chez zee
Ps the only reasonI put moderate noises because we sat at the table outside right next to the road and there were a lot of ambulances going by so and fire engines and so it was kind of loud siren noises but otherwise it was very enjoyable and not noisy we were there from 330 to 6 pm so it was a very quiet time

This is the only time I’ve had a meal that wasn’t great and we’ve been eating here for close to 20 years. I’m going back to my normal brunch choices either Eggs Benedict or Eggs Sardou which are always perfect.

My husband had his old favorite - the New Orleans pecan crusted chicken, and it did not disappoint. I tried something new - the chicken stuffed with jalapeno cornbread stuffing topped with red chili sauce. It was great, and I was thrilled to see that the jalapeno cornbread stuffing is offered as a side. Nice to come back to an old favorite.

Birthday lunch with family- very relaxed and enjoyable. Entree salads were great and we were presented a wonderful slice of lemon-rosemary cake for dessert. Worth the trip for the cake alone! Prompt service and quiet lunchtime made for a perfect birthday luncheon fora special lady.

Great food, drinks and service—the spinach dip is a must try. The portions are pretty big (except for the drinks). For the prices, I had more expectations for little things like restaurant decor but especially for drinkware. Nothing special.

Me and my friends had a great experience at Chez Zee. We always love the weekend brunch, especially the croissants with strawberry butter! Ian was our server and he was excellent, he gave great service and suggestions. He suggested the pear mimosas and they were to die for. We will be back again soon!
