    My wife and I chose this establishment for our date night. We were very pleased with our evening. The staff were courteous and helpful. The food was delicious and well presented. The environment was pleasing to the eye. It is in our opinion; Ze Kitchen is a nice place to spend the evening.

    The food was great except for cold sweet potato puree and the sauce for lamb was not minty. Lamb was excellent. Husband said fillet was perfect, carrots undercooked.. Day after New Years very quiet. No ambiance upstairs. Think the tables although beautiful wood could use some decoration. At least set. No appeal upstairs and very cold. We were offered seating downstairs but chose upstairs. We did not move because we thought it would be easier for server. I think it would be a nice place on a busier night. We received a gift card for Xmas. I would go back on a weekend before recommending.

    A friend and I celebrated my birthday here, and we both enjoyed everything we ate. She absolutely loved her appetizer, six oysters with six different dipping sauces, and I was happy enough with mine, the calamari. We both loved our main courses: she had the lamb, and I had the duck breast. I didn't think I was hungry enough to eat the entire generous portion, but it was so good, I ate almost all of it. Instead of rice, I asked for mashed potatoes, and they were superb (one scoop would have been enough though). Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert, but I will most certainly go back there, so maybe next time I'll leave room for dessert.

    The bathroom and floors were dirty. The waitress was inattentive. The food was cold. The charcuterie board was excellent though. We made the most of my mother’s birthday celebration but I was disappointed in our experience.

    We were downstairs. Music TOO loud so difficult conversation. The ambient temperature was too low, it was "cold"............. For the same make, size and "kind" ie Sauvignon and Valpolicella you are $3.00 more expensive than others............. Escargots were perfect....soup ordinary. Chicken parmigiana was too "breaded", overcooked and burnt on the edges, Presentation was throwned on the plate. Desserts were, again, ordinary. You can undersatnd that after spending $158.00............we left extremely disappointed............

The menu has a wide variety from finger foods to to comfort food to fine dining... We will certainly be going back... Thanks for a wonderful 30th anniversary dinner ...

    My husband and I have dined at Ze Kitchen in the past. This time we opted to order something a bit more casual. I had the 7 oz burger with fresh cheddar, bacon, pickles & sautéed onions served with fries and aioli. My husband opted for the smoked pulled pork on a bun with fries and aioli. Both of our meals were presented on a beautifully hand-crafted wooden bread board. Very impressive presentation and the food was absolutely delicious! My burger perfectly grilled, fries hot and crispy & the pulled pork not too sweet. All of the food cooked to perfection! We shared a piece of the Ferrero Rocher cheesecake, garnished with hazelnuts for dessert. We highly recommend it and we will definitely be back!

    This was our 4th time to Ze Kitchen, with some notable changes: the menu (fine dining AND Bistro dining) is now all together on ONE menu, much more handy for ordering. We arrived for a 5:30 seating and left around 8:45, and never once felt pressured to leave, although, it was quiet on a Wednesday night. The food was excellent AND the wine list has much more selection now. I had the Tacos Trio (Beef, Shrimp, Chicken) with the Onion Soup, friends had Lamb and my husband had Steak 'n Fries, ALL were excellent. We did have to ASK for bread & butter, and I think, the bread was not from our local bakery, The Black Walnut, but it was white buns, whereas we prefer Multi-grain bread/buns. Desert was outstanding, as usual, but I was disappointed that the Cappuccino machine, was broken (again) AND that they did not serve DeCaf Coffee. The final bill was absolutely, reasonable for high end dining. Can't wait to return, love the Ambiance.

    Restauranf is far from the main city but beautiful. Love the ambiance. Upon arriving the hostess didnt seem so friendly. She was also seemed irritated when any of the guests in our group asked a question. It was mentioned to me twice by 2 different guests and also noticrd by myself. Regardless, Our server (male - forgot his name) was efficient and polite! For a large group, the service was quick! We really enjoyed dining in a private room. All of the guests really enjoyed their food! We will def be back again.

    1)Lack of host/hostess greeting. 2)Much too bright and noisy room upstairs; sterile, no atmosphere. 3)Waitress was sweet but management's lack of properly training waiters/waitresses. 3) The website implies a gastronomical adventure with class but lack of finesse and attention to detail and food was good but attempts to simulate French cuisine was missed. Certainly not reminiscent of the original, classy Heritage restaurant that first opened decades ago. If you want a romantic dinner to celebrate a very important milestone birthday, don't go there. My fault for not paying more attention to the full menu; only checked out the main courses which looked pretty fancy on their website.I like to give local businesses a chance and make my own review so I ignored the reviews I read before going. If you want a very casual night out with the kids then go there; I hear the pizza and tacos are good.

    We were overall pleased with our experience. Two items though: 1) we were never offered coffee or tea. Dessert was offered though. 2) When the 14 meals were served to our group there was a very long period of time between the first meal being placed on the table to the last. Some of my meal was cold while we waited, I am sure everyone's meal was somewhat cold.
