They decorated the table and gave us a free dessert.
Food was well seasoned and was served promptly. Waiter was helpful and unobtrusive. Good restaurant, will come again.
This place is our favorite restaurant in town. It was a bit more hectic than usual, but that's to be expected on Easter Sunday. The food was amazing and our server did a good job in spite of being double sat with a large group. She was a trooper!
We had a surprisingly disappointing experience on Easter day. I chose Chez Zee, because I love the ambience and the food is always solid. They had a lot of fun activities for the kids as we were waiting, so it started out great.
Unfortunately we were seated in the back room under the air return, which was not the most festive of spots to be. Then, my husband’s migas were not as good as they typically are, and my spinach and mushroom omelette had still cold pieces of spinach throughout.
Still, I will recommend it to others, and will try one more time because I’m hoping this was just a blip!
I've been at Chez Zee many times. But on Easter was very disappointed in the food. I ordered the quiche and it was terrible - very small slice and looked burned. Most of my plate consisted of potatoes! Ended up sharing my daughter's eggs benedict, which was very good. My granddaughters both got the kid's pancake with one side --- really? Did not look appetizing at all.
Chez Zee has the best brunch in town, by far!
Food is always good and fun environment.
Good selection of food.
We love the casual clientele, eclectic decor, yummy brunch selections, and semi-formal service.
Good food and great desserts. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
Appreciated getting a table in a quieter area, per my colleagues request, due to their hearing situation. Always enjoy the bacon quiche, delicious! Our server, George, told us it was his first day - he did an outstanding job!
Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate you taking the time and we let George read your review. It made all of our day! So glad you loved the quiche and can't wait to see you again very soon at Chez Zee~!
Had the meatloaf special for lunch. Delicious! Tried the coco leches cake too. The piece was huge but I have had better desserts from Chez Zee.
This place was so hyped as 1 of 100 best brunches and always packed. So when family came to visit, I booked a reservation for the 6 of us. The flavorless food, and loudness of other diners, made our dining experience a 0 on a scale of 1 to 10, yes a zero! We won't be back and we'll never recommend it to anyone visiting. Awful. I would think diners at such a nice place would be a little more quiet/conservative by speaking softly, as they are at other nicer restaurants. Maybe you should install some sound dampening padding on the ceilings? Otherwise, ask diners to be respectful of others by being quieter. Very not classy at all. They had live piano music. Sadly, we could barely hear it over the diners' voices.
Chez Zee is the best place in Austin for lunch!
Thank you to Chez Zee for the outstanding staff. food, decor, reservations, and parking!
Always a great meal!
The last few times I have gone at lunch, you seem short-staffed. Takes away a bit from what should be a wonderful dining experience!
Hi Kelly, Thank you so much for your review! I am so sorry we seemed short staffed when you were in. We have hired a new bunch of servers and will be fully staffed the next time you are in. Thank you for letting us know and for your reveiw. We will look forward giving you service that is up to our usual Chez Zee standards next time you are in!
The perfect place for a friends' lunch gathering so we could catch up!
Hi Sylvia, Thank you so much for your review! So happy to hear it's one of your favorite places!! I did ask the kitchen about the quiche and they would not tell me! i did try though ;) Thank you again for your wonderful review Sylvia. Look forward to seeing you very soon at Chez Zee!
Tried a new entree “kale/ quinoa salad”. Very good and will order it again.
Thank you Tom! The kale/quinoa salad is one of our best sellers. I'm so glad you like it! We will look forward to your return visit!
Wonderful, eclectic restaurant. The Chicken Adrano was fantastic; the creamy sauce was perfectly complemented by the salty capers and mixed well with the rice pilaf. Sauted veggies were tender without being overcooked. My friend had prime rib and it was equally as good as the chicken. The wine list is comprehensive without being overwhelming. Love the red piano. I definitely recommend Chez Zee to anyone visiting Austin.
Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate hearing from you and loved reading your great descriptions of the food and your experience. Can't wait to see you again very soon at Chez Zee!
We have always enjoyed dining at Chez Zee’s.
It’s probably been a year since we have been there and we have always had very tentative and friendly servers, but this was the first time we have ever had bad service.
Our waiter continually disappeared for long periods of time.
We had empty water glasses and almost skipped dessert because we were afraid to send him away again after waiting forever to get a dessert menu and to wait for him to come back to take the dessert order.
Still love Chez Zee and will be back to try it again, hoping that was just a fluke.
I took and my friend and her five year old daughter. They were visiting from SA. I wanted them to have an Austin experience. We all had a lovely time — camped at the table for a couple of hours and tipped appropriately for doing so. The service and food were wonderful as always.
Our waiter Luke was extremely attentive, and everyone said their entree was delicious; I would definitely recommend Chez Zee!
Service was slow. One of the guests was unable to be there. The waiter never came back to check on us until I went up to the service station. We were there for 2 1/2 hours. Many people that came after us left well before us. One in our party was unable to sit for long periods and left after 2 hours.
Thank you for checking in with us. I'm so sorry to hear the service was slow. I will look into this and make sure it doesn't happen again. Please apologize to your guest and let them know we are so sorry that the service was slow and they had to leave. If you have any issues in the future please get a manager and we will fix any situation immediately. I am so sorry we were not able to do that when you were in. We will look forward to hearing from you again!
Busy Saturday morning. Seems like a lot of bday, anniversary celebrations going on. Perhaps more people to run food/drinks?
Nothing special for the price. Service was marginal. Parts of the meal were over cooked.
We had a delicious lunch and enjoyable visit. The noise level was comfortable. All of us were happy with our food choice. The Thursday Special of pork tenderloin medalians were very flavorful. My friends commented how delicious their food was.
My sisters and I took our mom to celebrate her 85th birthday. We had a great experience and our server was outstanding
Tiffany was fabulous! Funny, attentive, great service.
I've loved coming to Chez zee for years. The food, service & ambiance are always amazing!
Love the piano but everyone tries to talk over it----real loud.
Consistently good food and service. Timbre is a very good server, and we enjoyed her very much!
We love to Birthdays at Chez Zee. Always delicious!
I was planning to surprise my gf for her bday so I specified the dessert ahead of time. There was a complete disregard for the instructions on the reservation. I've been coming to this place for years but after my experience recently, I will not be going back. Chez zee really dropped the ball.
Good service and great food. Got a table in a quieter area of the restaurant as requested. Our initial server was a bit intrusive but still did a good job. The second server was much better. He was there when needed yet not hovering around. Even the valet parking attendant did a great job too. The food was perfectly prepared and the taste was exceptional. We spent 2 1/2 hours savoring our food and enjoying our conversation. We were never rushed though we spent about an hour just talking after finishing dessert and paying the tab. All in all a very nice experience.
A great birthday celebration was had by all of us.
We love Chez Zee and have been there many times. Huge variety of options on the menu and everything we've ever had there has been excellent! Service was a tad inattentive on our last visit for a late lunch, but this was unusual compared to other visits. We've taken lots of family and friends to Chez Zee over the years because we live nearby, and it's always a hit.
My only complaint is always: the NOISE, and I don't know how you remdiate this problem.
Too noisy. Screaming kids at table next to us. Food was good. Place needs a cleaning and update.
Folks who work there are great. Good wonderful. Noise level made conversation extremely difficult. We will definitely come back.
My wife and I lived in Austin for 38 years, and moved to Virginia 15 years ago. We visit Austin each year to see family and friends, and make it a point to have breakfast at Chez Zee at least once during our visits. The food and service are always outstanding.
As always, Chez Zee’s was excellent. It is always our special place for Celebration. Service was better than excellent.
