This was my second visit and it wasn't like the first visit. On the first visit, the food was better. The second, not so much. I brought a friend along for the brunch and I had to let her know that I wasn't quite as satisfied as before. I would recommend Zed451 to others because everyone's experience may be different. The ambiance is always the same...peaceful and quiet. The staff is always professional and friendly.

We had the weekend brunch and it did not let down. The first course is amazing by itself, but is followed by 9 delicious "proteins" that are all unique and delicious. Our server was outstanding, friendly, attentive, and made sure our family was taken care of.

I've been here before and the service was better. Out of the 13 meats they supposedly had, only about 8 came by during our service and they came by at a frequency that was way slower than other restaurants or even this one on a different day. I had to beg the waiter twice to get him to bring us the top sirloin, and when it finally got to us it was 11pm and it was cold, the last batch of the night. I saw other dishes being delivered to other patrons in other parts of the restaurant that I never got to have. It appears that the place they sat us was just not on most of the walking-paths most of the waiters used. Overall, it was a pretty bad experience for 75$ a pop, but what can you do. Normally it's a pretty great restaurant.

Food and environment are amazing but the service is terrible from some workers and great from others. My waiter was upset that I tipped 15% and not 20% because it was New Year’s Eve. He argued with me about acceptable tips yet he didn’t give me service but once only to give me my check.

Dinner at ZED celebrating NYE...not a stellar experience. Service was slow, salad bar selections were not replenished, raw bar presentation was terrible. Cheddar biscuits are much needed, at this per person price point. Second time dining at ZED, not a wow at all on NYE.

Celebrated NYE with the Seafood and steak buffet it was delicious. Downside to the rodilla style is that you can get overlooked pieces at times because it depends on when the server comes to you. Fogo de chao does a better job at serving meat to your liking.

Go to the bar for the samba band and dancing, which are great, but don't go there to dine. Appetizer bar is fine but main course is poor.

The recipe for the chicken and waffles has changed, it was quite literally the only reason we continued to come here, the new recipe lacks seasoning, lacks spice, the meat is not proportionate to the amount of waffle, and the meat portion is too small, it is also dry. We'll find a new spot.

My favorite place for brunch. It’s an outstanding value and always has a great selection. Service is exemplary as well - I mentioned I didn’t see any deviled eggs and our waiter came back 15 minutes later with a plate and explained they’re not there customarily there for brunch but the chef specially prepared 3 for our table.

My brother came into town and I figured we should try something new. The food is amazing with lots of choices and the service was fantastic! Just make sure that you pace yourself. Once you’re ready for the second course, they come around with the meat choices so fast that you may eat way too fast. The desserts are small and is just enough for 1 serving. We had the key lime pie, apple pie and the bread pudding, let’s just say make sure you leave room in your belly. Our server Fernando was pleasant and ensured that we were well taken care of. Even the manager Mark checked in with us to make sure that we were happy. Hands down to the front and back of the house. We will definitely come back for more.

We had a great experience here. It was our first time here and the waiter did a good job giving us a thorough explanation of how the dinner works. The quality of the steak and chicken were superb, and servers were bringing them out at a quick rate so that we weren’t waiting around too much. Servers were very friendly and funny. We will definitely be back.

Arrived early around 5:45PM because we had a show to go to. We were only 1/4 tables that were there at 6PM, on a Saturday: should have been a warning to us. We waited an hour only to receive “top and bottom sirloin” not seasoned well as well. We left early and pod for our mistake; will never come her again.

The food was fantastic, there were so many different options. There was a point, in the dinner, where my date and I had just finished our served entree; the waiter came over to apologize for our empty plates. He then proceeded to send 6 different servers to our table with different cuts of meat. The service was excellent. We look forward to coming back!
