We love the brunch here at Zed 451. We come very often. The food is great as well as the selection.

The only thing we didn't like was that the maple turkey sausage is no longer on the menu.

I visited Zed 451 this past Sunday 3/3/19 for my boyfriend's birthday for the first time. Everything was perfect, from the food to the ambience. However, the server Tiffany was BEYOND AMAZING, she went above and beyond to accommodate ALL of our needs. She truly made our experience a memorable one. Thank you Tiffany and we will definitely be back.

I enjoy the brunch much better than the dinner. Our waiter did not seem to be enthused, however it could have just been his personality.

Me and the wife decided to have a night out in town, since we recently moved to the suburbs and we actually had a babysitter. We are used to going to Fogo de Chao and Texas de Brazil, So we decided to give this place a try. We mad resrvations for 7:30 on a Saturday, we got seated right away which was good the waiter came by and explain the whole concept. So we headed to the salad bar and ate some salad. After 30 mins a chef finally came to offer us some meat, and another 30 mins later another guy came. So after 1hr only 2 people came by. So we told our waiter and he finally got a few more guys to come, We ended up spending almost 3 hrs there because the chef's would take forever to come by us. In my opinon it is not work it, go to Fogo or Texas de Brazil

I have been a hide fan for years. Was a go to place for a nice date with my wife or bringing folks from out of town. High quality, tons of choices. Things have changed. The number of dishes on the harvest tables have declined significantly and are basically made from cheap ingredients. Where is the parm? Prosciutto? Duck pastrami? All gone. Replaced with cheddar ?

Took forever to get meat to come around. No more stones so you have to flag a waiter down to get plates. Meat was very underdone and since when are skewed rolls of bread a replacement for one of the meat dishes? The Moroccan chicken was always my favorite. Pleased around once in the over two hours I was at the table. Same with the mahi. Hanger steak passed at least 10 times. Lamb once.

For the price I can no longer recommend this place. Was terribly disappointed. Tons of other options for what turned out to be close to a $200 tab for two people with one cocktail and one Diet Coke.

We enjoyed our dinner. Our only dissatisfaction had to do with part of the service. The chefs did not make their way to neither our table or the one next to us very often. We had to ask for someone to visit us. It seemed as if we were just overlooked. The food was delicious!

Great food! Fun experience! They were very busy this Saturday night. We had reservations for 6 at 7:00 but had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. Wait staff seemed busy so the service was a bit slow. Would have liked a bigger selection beer. No beer on tap. Overall, I shall return!

The food was good - the variety of protein offered was a lot compared to other similar restaurants. The service, however, was poor - it was slow and we waited a long time for the meats that we requested.

The items on the buffet had been sitting out quite a while (clumpy rice and beans, wilted lettuce, soggy tomatoes etc) and I was there for the earliest dinner service opening of 5pm. There was a shrimp option served at the bar but our waitress wouldn't bring it to us in the restaurant area. The meat was okay but there was a hair in my chicken and the waitress took it away but didn't give us a credit on the bill. Very surprised at the lack of care for the customer experience.

My husband and I tried zed451 for the first time. I was so excited because I’ve heard such great things about this place and we love Brazilian steakhouses! The service was TERRIBLE. We asked for our sides twice that came out half an hour later. I promise you they only brought a total of 3 types of meat. We asked for the chicken and it came out also 30 minutes later. The salad bar was great but I’m honestly very disappointed in the service. We paid so much and didn’t even get our moneys worth at all.

The meat options are terrible. The servers are slow. There is no taste to the meats. The best dish I tried was the apple butter chicken thighs. The beef ribeye and sirloin are slightly seared on the outside and totally rare underneath. Total waste of time. Never again.

The place was very nice. The salad bar was a little different and offered different things that not every salad bar has. I enjoyed the different breads.

I felt that some of the meat was good. But the men who serve the meat aren’t very knowledgeable on the meat. I was repeatedly served very very rare meat. What is the point of asking if no matter what I get a barely warm piece of bloody meat? One guy came by and was surprised by how rare it was and apologized.

Probably won’t go back.

Not somewhere I'll be visiting again. The ambiance is great and the service was fine. The food is not steakhouse quality.. Meats were overcooked and fish tasted old. You will be over-fed to try to make up for the poor food quality. Not worth it.

First visit and every thing was on point. Food was excellent, atmosphere was pleasant but service could have been a bit better. I asked for a coke and never got it, a few other simple requests were forgotten. But I would still go back and would refer this restaurant.
