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 The atmosphere is outdated and dull.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!!!😊

Celebrating our son-in-law's birthday and had a great time. Food was great! There was a piano player the whole time we were there, and was just the right level.

We had a very nice table that was secluded and welcoming.... until the worker started drilling on the roof right above us! But the waiter quickly said that shouldn’t be happening and informed the manager who took care of things immediately. He came and apologized and we had a lovely rest of the evening, enjoying my husbands birthday. Our server was very good and the food was delicious. And we loved our desserts!

Love the atmosphere. The food is always exceptional. The only very minor complaint is the waitress seemed a bit too busy, maybe they didn't have enough staff on duty.

We were there for Sunday brunch. The food was good, and reasonably priced. The restaurant was very busy, and very noisy. It was difficult to carry on a conversation, and the wooden chairs quickly got uncomfortable. In short, good food, but not a place for relaxed mealtime conversation.

I made reservations for 12:30 and somehow we couldn’t be seated until about 30 minutes later. No one seemed to think it was not ok, as if it were normal. It was a Birthday Brunch. We stayed and the servers were very nice. Honestly don’t know if I’ll return.

I don't usually go there due to the popularity, however, I wanted to make an exception this past weekend and went for brunch. The overall experience was good, however, the noise level is way up, it's hard to speak one another hence everybody feels they have to shout. Food is good for Sunday brunch.

The Friday night noise was high with the piano overlay we had to ask them to turn down the piano amplification . By 7:30 the crowd thinned and it was better. Food and service were excellent! Recommend the enclosed and air conditioned patio for a little quieter experience, though it is still pretty noisy. Recommend prime rib, trout, pecan crusted salmon, all salads, pork chop and pastas.

I usually love Chez Zee but was disappointed with the Pad Thai special. There were very few vegetables just noodles. When they brought more vegetables I was charged extra for the mushrooms. I was not told there would be a charge. An excellent restaurant with a not so good special.
