Awesome! I took my son to the Brunch for his 21st Birthday. It was an experience to remember. There is a reason they are famous for their meat selections...it was superior by all means. Me being a big breakfast person, I would definitely recommend more selections of the sides...as they were limited. With that said what was offered was nothing short of delicious. The staff was friendly and very attentive, the place was very clean and the attention to detail was awesome! I would definitely go back again.
We're so glad that you enjoyed everything, and that you choose to celebrate your son's 21st birthday with us. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank You! Jake Kosseff General Manager

Great place. I would normally go on Mondays on their slow days. Without any notice they got rid of the special Monday rates and found ourselves with a $70 higher bill. It's frustrating to go to a restaurant and then find out they change the price.
Nunu, I am truly sorry that you were caught off-guard when we stopped our limited time mondays at $39 promotion. It Ran January through November 2019. However, we will be bringing back $39 Mondays on all Bank Holidays in 2020, so you can take advantage of this deal again. Humbly, Jake Kosseff General Manager
I love the twist to the Brazilian Steak format. Had great service and explained everything to how it works. We had first timers.

We were really looking forward to eating at Zed again. It had been our go to place for years after it first opened but hadn't been back quite a few years. It was super disappointing. The restaurant was pretty much empty while we were there. Our server was lackadaisical and seemed irritated by the simplest questions (could we have salt & pepper was one). If it hadn't been for the other staff members we would have felt totally ignored. Food was not the best - definitely downscale from our last visit. The offerings were strange also - there was no bread (not even crackers - not even in the kitchen we were told) except for dense slices of sweet bread, chock full of fruits and nuts - - not quite what you'd like to eat with the charcuterie they offered or with the plentiful supply of cheeses. They also offered salmon with cream cheese, capers and egg, but no bagels. Finally, difficult to understand, they served hot meats (brought to the tables) but no hot side items - so with your hot chicken you could have fruit or salad, no potatoes, no rice, no dressing, only cold things. The desserts were decent, especially the tiny red velvet cupcakes and the potato salad was also pretty good. Everything else was pedestrian, typical buffet food - - - while the restaurant used to be "special" now it's just a plain old buffet. For value, there used to be an option where you could opt out of meat (for vegetarians/vegans) but now whether you eat it or not, you pay the full price. The one bright spot was the manager/supervisor. He stopped by our table and was quite pleasant - he listened to our complaints and said they were working on totally revamping the restaurant. I'm not quite sure how that will go but we probably won't go back.

Whenever I come to Chicago, I go out of my way to have brunch at Zed 451. The service is amazing and the food is excellent. I'm a vegetarian but my friends are not, but when I mentioned I was, the kitchen made me a plate of grilled vegetables - which were delicious. Zed 451 is one of my all time favorite restaurants and I'm excited to go back!
Jason, We're so glad that you continue to enjoy ZED451. We appreciate your business, and that you took the time to leave a detailed review. We will look forward to seeing you next time. Jake Kosseff General Manager
The food was good. The meats were pretty good. Salad, bread and soup selections was enough..... not over shelling. The only complaint I gave was the soup. I went to get soup section twice but found that it was never refilled. Service was very good. Waiter was attentive.
Tina, I'm sorry to hear about the soups, and appreciate you telling us. I'm sorry that we didn't fix it while your were dining. We are happy to hear that the rest of your meal was enjoyable, and appreicate you taking the time to share your experience. Jake Kosseff General Manager
Food and service was horrible. Had to wait over 45 minutes from them to bring out meat well done, when they finally brought out the meat is was a little platter with 4 pieces of meat for the entire table. Never again!!!
Wonder ambience, great staff (friendly with personality), unique food selection. (Attended Brunch)
Senitra, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your brunch at ZED451. We appreciate your business, and that you took the time to share your experience. Jake Kosseff General Manager
Wish the bartending staff was more attentive to our group. Had to remind them about drinks we ordered but never came and waited a long time for someone to take our bill so we could pay.
I am sorry to hear about the slow service at our bar. I will definitely look into what happened on the 26th, so that we can endeavor not to have it happen again. Please let me know the next time you dine with us, so that I might apologize in person, and grab you very quick drink. - Jake Kosseff, General Manager
We have now been twice. The food is amazing. Not the cheapest, but holy hell - you won't leave hungry! Our last visit was on a Sunday night, and the service was much faster than on our previous Saturday night trip. Maybe because it was slower, which certainly worked out to our advantage. We will be back! (Not for a while though... we're still stuffed from the last trip!)
Tyson, We're so glad you enjoyed your experiences at ZED451. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice, detailed note. We look forward to seeing you again. - Jake Kosseff, General Manager
