I have been here for the dinner service and I was impressed. I think they do brunch amazing. Other brunch spots do mini chicken and waffles but their version is on point!!!
Typical brunch spots are always so busy and packed but on a Sunday afternoon it was full but not to the point where you can hear what your next table guests are saying. Also those biscuits and the maple bacon...damn..mouth is salivating as we speak. Nina was very gracious and checking in on us frequently. I will be heading back to Zed451 for brunch for sure!

The staff was incredibly friendly and they did everything to make our occasion special, including complimentary champagne and a birthday dessert, but the food was just okay. A plus for service...B for quality of food.

We went for the Brunch to celebrate by daughters birthday. It is not your typical brunch as they have some breakfast dishes (eggs, bacon, French Toast, biscuits and gravy, cinnamon roles) along with the great salads, cheeses, deserts that you have with your traditional Brazilian steak house. They also walk around carving a wide variety of meats. The food as outstanding. There was not a single item that our group of 5 did not find delicious.

The atmosphere is also very nice, warm and inviting.

It is a bit expensive, but well worth it

Pros:
-Terrific ambiance, very chic and polished.
-Great for groups: we had a table of 9, and the self-serve salad/appetizer bar and rotating meat is very easy for everyone
-The food was so good. There's something for everyone at the buffet, and as it's all you can eat you can go back for what you like. We had several different kinds of chicken, a few cuts of beef, sausage, two types of fish, and fried plantains. Everything tasted great.

Cons:
-For the amount of food we got, this was not a great value. Although it's all you can eat, we were awkwardly shuffled around and the food stopped coming around as often as I'd like (see below).
-The service was not great. Our waitress took our plates after only a few rounds of meat came by. I asked if the service was over and her response was "Well you've had one of everything". I don't know about you, but the reason I go to Brazilian Steakhouses is to have five of everything and leave with my pants unbuttoned.
-The servers themselves were okay, but the meat wasn't as rapid-fire as it normally is at other Brazilian Steakhouses.
-There was a dripping HVAC vent above me that dripped on me several times throughout the evening and was not remedied.
-The drink order took well over fifteen minutes for everyone to get their drinks. One person at our table (who had only a glass of champagne), waited for at least another ten minutes after everyone had been served their drinks.
-Someone at my table had a fly in their wine and let the server know. She responded that the bartender closes all of the wine bottles after they poured (uh?), so the fly could not have been from the bottle... missing the point.

Easter brunch was a success. We had family and friends in town and they were very impressed with the restaurant. I was a little disappointed with the service because the protein was served slow. Other than that, everything was ok.

It was good overall but the service was a little bit slow. After rush hour, the chefs don't come around that often and we had to wait for a long time. We really liked the steak but had to wait for a long time for it to come. Hope that the service could be improved.

ZED has always been one of my favorite restaurants for brunch, however they stepped their game up this past weekend. One of our friends in our group is vegan, and the staff made sure she still had amazing food and an awesome experience! Thanks ZED!!! Great food! Great drinks! Wonderful staff!

My experience here was magical. The server and staff are so friendly and welcoming. The always made sure our water was filled, and our wine glass wasn't empty. The food is cooked perfectly and mouth watering. The buffet selection had incredible endless choices. They also surprised us with complementary champagne since my boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary! I defiantly recommend this place for a romantic dinner with your partner.

The location and ambience is wonderful. The bar area is a great place to hang out and get a drink. The meats they brought out were good, same quality as the other Brazilian Steakhouses, but the buffet was very disappointing. I thought it was more expensive the other Brazilian steakhouse restaurants and the food quality was not as good.

We have had brunch at Zed for several years, sometimes for a special occasion but occasionally simply as a treat. We love everything about it. The great service, the harvest tables -- buffet tables where we go up again and again -- the fresh fruit, the salads, the house-cured salmon and bagels and the rest of the fabulous food. Can't recommend it highly enough!

The food and service were lacking today. I waited almost 30 min for the hanger steak to come around medium rare. The first time it was well done and very dry. Towards the end of the night we asked for coffee before we ordered the dessert and we received the dessert before the coffee. Overall it was an ok at best dinner. Nothing special. We'll go back and give it another try.

My server was Great. Everything seemed to take a really long time. The meat, some of which never even came to my table where just slow. I never knew if I should leave the table for all the great sides. Or stay and wait for meats and other treats. I just wanted a complete hot meal. All the pieces never really came together for a good eating experience. What food I had was really good . The process of getting it all in 1 place was exhausting. When I went for eggs finally, they were cold and stick to pot. Disappointed. I had been here before couldn’t remember why I hadn’t been back. I guess I know. Friendly staff, tried to make it better. Lost me on the first 10 mins after behind seated and no one had shown up. Thanks

Great experience, environment, and staff! You can’t go wrong. If you’re in a budget approach with caution. However, this is the place you must try! I highly recommend this place for serious couples, married couples, and birthday parties. This may be my top five place to eat in Chicago!

Really nice atmosphere and our main server was good. Salads, cured meats and cheeses, breads average. Don’t really think you need chili at a Brazilian steakhouse. With only 4-5 sides that can be ordered ala cart, just put them out as part of the meal with the other starters. We were told 12-13 proteins by the server but after only 30 minutes it seemed to be the same items of 4-5 meats. Someone from management came by and asked how things were and we asked about seafood and any pork items. Then those items came out. They need to be alittle more attentive as to what is coming out. I’d have to say when we were in town 2 years ago our experience was much better than this time around. Maybe the fact it was a Friday night and only half the restaurant was full maybe an indicator that some changes need to be addressed. Hate to say it but next time we are in town and want Brazilian steakhouse looks like it will be Fogo de Chao. We all agreed seasonings on some of the meats were too heavy. On the bright side we enjoyed our drinks and desserts.
