The service was horrible the waiters would come every 30 mins with different selection of meat but they would spill juice and blood from the tray all over the table. Then they would give you the smallest portion possible and wouldn’t ask you if you would like another piece, of you wanted some more you would have to ask them. I also think the food wasn’t seasoned all to well. Definitely would not recommend this place out of all the Brazilian steakhouse is this Hass to be the worst. I figured since it was downtown Chicago it was going to be delicious but I was way wrong.

Our family dines here often and it’s our go to spot for out of town visitors and for celebrations. The food and service are always outstanding. Nina is our favorite server, she’s always very pleasant and goes beyond our expectations, and Jose was super friendly and helpful. The food is always fresh and delicious, as well as the drink selections. Ambiance is impeccable and relaxing and has a great rooftop during the warm months.

Our waiter wouldn’t speak directly to me, he was very slow, and the food was just subpar. The service was not reflective of what we spent. :(

Multiple visits to ZED451 over the last 2 years have seen the quality of the experience go down. The meat selections seem to be reducing, and the speed of the service seems to be really slow, especially in this last visit. We were seated in a dark corner and seemed to spend long intervals with empty plates. They did comp the drinks, which was appreciated, but we were still left with a bit of a downer of an experience.

Nice option for Date Night. Restaurants staff is approachable and informative. Meat is prepared perfectly with medium rare to well done. All the accompanying dishes are delicious.

Brunch here is always OUTSTANDING and our server Jay was phenomenal, this was carried over to the entire staff; the manager Louis was also a delight to meet and chat with. Louis told us about other offerings at ZED451 and we certainly plan to come to enjoy some of them.

Zed451 is certainly not the restaurant it once was. Selections were poor and customer service leaves a lot to be desired. It's definitely no longer worth the cost, with so many other fabulous restaurants in Chicago.

This was my 3rd time going there and the worst. There were fruit flys by the bread. I repeatedly asked for medium rar meat and it was well done with each sample. The fries were luke warm

Went on a Saturday around 1pm. Picked the place due to the great reviews and awesome space. Seemed understaffed for the amount of customers. We waited ~7-8 min in between servers - which is not normal for a Brazilian steakhouse. Manager (?) and servers seemed to notice our frustration and came by to ask if they could bring something specific. Manager even came back with food at one point, which was appreciated, but too little too late.

Couple other points
-There were flies on the buffet food
-The first serving of bottom sirloin was very rare - looked like they went though a lot before getting to us.

I’m sure this place is great 99/100 times. Unfortunately I can not justify trying this place again with another perfectly good Brazilian Steakhouse right around the corner.

From the time we walked in the door and sat down, all the staff was very welcoming and most accommodating. Our server Fernando was super awesome. The food was amazing. To be honest I didn't eat anything else until later that evening because I ate so much at ZED451 Weekend brunch. Thanks everyone. We'll be back.

Meh....Quite expensive for the meal and service delivered. In the past, had been a favorite. Hoping we just had a bad night. Overcooked and slow to arrive meats, not attentive waitress, mediocre at best salads...for $100/person with dinner and 2 glasses of low end wine...not worth it.
