The restaurant was not very busy. I’ve definitely had better food and service at the same price. I would expect a little more. The wait was minimal so no complaints about how quickly food was served.

Food was fabulous as always! It does get a little loud and can be hard to have a conversation but we love the place!

Awful parking, way too loud. Can’t even hear the person right next to you. Reservations are useless. Reservation for for only 4 people and they sat us 30 minutes late.

We’ve been coming to Chez Zee for over 15 years. This was the first time our service was poor. We waited forever for our waiter to take our order, and then had to flag staff down to order dessert and drinks. We were celebrating a family birthday as we often do there, but this may have been our last time. Disappointing.

We celebrated my sister's birthday with brunch. The table was decorated for a birthday and our wait staff wished her a happy birthday no less than 6 times and that was before they brought the birthday dessert! The food is always high quality. My favorite is the pecan waffle. It is awesome. The crab omelette received rave reviews as well. The best advice I can give someone regarding Chez Zee is to always make a reservation. This restaurant is always consistently busy and the wait times can get long without one.

We had the Portobello plate, the salmon plate, and the veggie pasta plate. Love the portobello best! Delicious Caesar salad, and brownie bites for dessert.

Parking has become a problem and the valet staff is not very good at managing the increased demand.

Service was slow yesterday at lunch and the restaurant was comfortably full but not slammed.

Please, please fix the women’s bathroom toilet. It has been in poor service for quite a while.

We always have a good experience at Chez Zee. Be sure to make a reservation. We waited over an hour one time before we learned to call ahead. The food, drinks and service are all good.

They were very bust and in spite of our reservation, we were left standing in near the hostess desk for over 15 minutes . The hostess flitted back and forth between the dining areas and the front, clutching her tablet with available tables on it? Perhaps it wasn’t working? The waiter was just ok. Didn’t seem particularly interested in us or taking our orders, made no suggestions. Food took a long time, bit I understood they were busy. What baffles me is how of could take so long to get cocktails and the appetizer cheese tray? Also we were never offered nor received bread for the table. Entrees were all nicely prepared and food was good.

We went to the New Years Day brunch. Needless to say they were very busy and seemed very
rushed. While the food was good, it wasn’t quite as good as usual. But we love Chez Zee and will certainly be back. It’s a great bistro and is typically 5 star.

The French toast is always amazing. But for the price the food should come out hot.

It has been a while since we have visited Chez Zee and our memory of the food was much better than what we experience on New Years Eve. My husband had the pecan crusted salmon and I had the tequila lime chicken - they were fairly bland. Even though, we had a reservation, we had to wait about 30 minutes. It was extremely loud and we could not hear the singer - she was overwhelmed by the musicians. The hallway to the restrooms was wet and slippery.

New Year's Eve at Chez Zee is always a treat! We enjoy the great music (in both rooms), and both the regular menu and specials, in a relaxed and yet beautiful atmosphere.
