Went for our 20th Wedding
Anniversary, and restaurant had a Special Decorated Table for us. Food was phenomenal, but service was extremely slow. I think our waiter had too many Large Tables he was having to service. It took a really long time to just get water & the drinks we ordered!

Dining room is a bit quirky, but fun. I had a pretty basic meal, but everything was prepared well. Service was exceptional. Nice experience!

My husband and I went to Chez Zee for my birthday celebration. The staff decorated my table with “celebration” ribbon and a “Happy Birthday” place card. Our waiter, Mario, was fabulous and granted all of my requests while keeping our iced tea glasses full and clearing all used dinnerware from the table. He also told me that my dessert was on the house, so that made me very, very happy! The food was delicious, as always. Chez Zee is my favorite place to dine in Austin. I always treat my out-of-town guests to a meal there.

Chez Zee is an old favorite. The entire menu shines, but the desserts are legendary. Best Italian cream cake in town, and try the Kahlua Crunch pie which is amazing.

We went for my daughter's birthday. Everything was wonderful. The food was great. Our server was terrific. There were banners on the table, and a Happy Birthday sign. And management comped her dessert. We had a wonderful time.

Our group of friends always enjoys our get togethers at Chez Zee. Food is great, atmosphere can sometimes be a bit loud, but we like the energy. Service is excellent!

We had a really great waiter. Food was good. The desserts were delicious. My complaint is, every time I come there it doesn’t matter how much cream I put in my coffee, it still stays black. You really should upgrade your “cream”to heavy whipping cream, or something that actually changes the color of the coffee and makes the coffee creamy.

The menu is extensive and everything was delicious. Sunday brunch included a delicious omelet, grits and croissants with strawberry butter. Pomegranate lemon mimosas with a sugar rim were really tasty. The restaurant is beautiful and they had live piano music during brunch. I will definitely go back to try dinner.

The food was really good but we were disappointed that they were already out of prime rib on a Friday night at 7:30 p.m. It' s only available on Friday and Saturday nights. We had gone to Chez Zee specifically for that.

Always one of our favorite brunch spots, especially when we want a place that takes reservations. The food is consistently good, the ambiance is festive, and the service is good even when it is busy. Especially love the outdoor patio when waiting for a table or just as a spot to take a few cute pics.

This place was beyond disappointing. The atmosphere is outdated and dull. The food was just bad. I had the tuna and it was barely seasoned and covered in an awful mayo sauce. My son's pizza was go greasy he would not eat it. We should have left when we saw it was 90% empty on a Saturday night.

We normally come here for brunch, but their dinner menu is just as tasty, especially the extensive dessert menu. We all ordered a variety of plates and shared. Everything was good. My son’s off the kid menu was a very large portion so he had leftovers as well.

The staff seemed simply put off by any little request. They tried to give us a table that was in the middle of the hustle and bustle when I specifically requested a quiet table on my Open Table reservation. When I asked for the quiet table that was plainly available the lady looked at us and said “I’ll have to ask.” The waiter brought us croissants without any plates. When we asked for an extra plate so we could sample the dishes, the waitress looked perplexed. The food was ok but the service left a lot of be desired for...

A friend from San Diego was visiting Austin for the first time and I knew this was my first choice to bring her for lunch. She tried the quiche & veg soup and she loved it. I always get the crab cakes ( which are to die for) and the house salad when I come her. They make the best crab cakes!! I can’t wait to come back!!!😊
