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.

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.

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 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.

Food was okay. A little on the cold side. Our entrees came out while we were still eating the appetizers which was very annoying. We complained to the waiter - he apologized but that was it. The atmosphere is lovely though. Will give it another try in the hopes it was just a bad night.

Food was great. I was disappointed in the names of the food, somewhat misleading. Chicken fried beignets are chicken tenders. Misleading. Our waitress was funny, but extremely slow and forgetful. She literally ignored one of our friends and didn’t take his order. This just seemed to carry through the night.

This is minor to some, but major to other who have great noses... Every time I visit your restaurant I'm taken aback by smelling the restrooms upon entering and leaving... Bad disinfectant smell.. kinda ruins what you were expecting to experience by great food or the last thing to enter your nose on the way out. There has got to be another disinfectant that smells better... Our noses (smell) are a great part of enjoying food.

First time visit to celebrate a birthday. Had reservations for brunch but waited 30 min for our table. The restaurant is old and quirky. Unfortunately, the carpet is old and the place had an old, mildewy smell. We were seated by a table of 12 and it was so loud, it was difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was okay. No one at our table liked the specialty french toast. One person loved their lobster omelette. Parking was a nightmare (the valet is located as you exit the lot, which doesn't work very well). I had heard great things about this place so it was disappointing. Won't go back.

This place is great. The ambiance is wonderful, almost like dining in someone's home. And even tho there's quite a few tables packed into the space, the noise level is low. The food was great, tho I wished the biscuits and gravy was smothered in more gravy. That bowl of bacon tho? So delish. The only drawback is parking. It's tough, tho there is complimentary valet. And do make a reservation.

My date ordered a white wine by the glass. The server asked her if she wanted the cheaper or more expensive wine by the glass. She said she wanted the more expensive one. The server goes to get the drink, then comes back and says they don't have any more of that wine to serve by the glass, and that she would need to order a full bottle. My date says that in that case, she will just get the cheaper white wine by the glass. The server goes to the back to get it. Then he comes right back and says nevermind - that he can serve the more expensive white wine by the glass after all. In other words, this inexperienced idiot thought he could upsell my date to a full bottle by lying. Not coming back.
