Seated next to a very large and vulgar party, although we requested quiet seating in advance. Astonishingly, the toddler at the next table took off his shirt and dropped his pants right in public. I'm surprised they were not asked to leave. My past experiences at Chez Zee have always been a treat, civil, and attentive. This visit, in short, was an embarrassing nightmare for me and my guests. I'll give it one more try.

I had the blueberry bleu salad and my hubby had the grilled steak salad. Both were very delicious and generous portions! Steak was tender. The dressings on the salads are homemade in the restaurant and they are delicious! Ambiance was mellow and quiet. They had live music in the corner with a gentleman playing soft jazz on piano. What a cool restaurant! Patio would have also been very nice as it is covered and very inviting! Our server Chris was amazing—very attentive. And of course, after having salads for dinner, we had to try the dessert 😁 as they are known for their yummy treats. We shared the Granny Smith apple pie a la mode—it was absolutely “melt in your mouth” divine! Perfect size for us to share! Highly recommend Chez Zee!! Two thumbs up and we will definitely be back!! Soon!!

What makes our experience review-worthy was our service. Dylan was fantastic - the perfect mix of skilled professional and funny charmer. He made our night extra special and I will ask to be seated with him again when next I visit.

It wasn't crowded, but the service was super slow - despite there being a lot of people working. The food was just ok. It was also really dark - in the middle of the day.

I have a hard time deciding on an order as the menu is so good and varied. I had the brunch waffle and bacon which was delicious and enough for me . CZ is one of my favorite places to eat.

The service was outstanding but doesn’t make up for the menu. Horrible! My boyfriend had a pizza and it was LOADED with cheese, WAY TOO MUCH. I had the pork and it was “eh” nothing special, definitely could make it better myself. Very disappointed as it was a recommendation from a friend

No, it was just a plain table. The wait person forgot several items we ordered and had no idea about the cake we'd reserved. In fact, as soon as I arrived I noticed the greeter/wait staff seemed in a bad mood. They looked so gloomy that I felt sorry for them. Is this typical for a busy Sunday? I think for the next birthday we'll try somewhere else.

The food came pretty quickly but was mediocre at best. The eggs weren’t fully cooked. The crab omelette was not good at all and not as advertised. The pecan crusted goat cheese salad was not as stayed in the menu and needed lots of extra dressing to make or edible. This was my second attempt at brunch and I will not be back.
