Zee Grill Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar
Food is always great as is service. BUT I have come to realize that if you are hungry don’t eat here as portions are minuscule. We had the lobster and fries which took about 30 seconds to eat. Price should be half of what they are based on portions. Have gone here a dozen times but won’t bw returning as there are many other good places to eat with great service and food.
Loud neighbours next to us Great food as always. Fresh oysters and seafood.
My husband and I have been going here for decades. We usually have an appetizer of oysters (always super fresh) and then have mussels and frites. This time we invited friends who had not been here in years and they loved it. To celebrate we had deserts and they were amazing.
My wife and I were very pleased with the quality and presentation of the food...the Trout Pate... her whole lobster, and my Halibut Fish and chips were excellent.
Deb, said "Best Lobster".
The large, loud and mobile birthday party in this small restaurant enjoyed their evening; as a result, I did not.
It would have been useful to know of this booking in advance, or at least to have had an apology from the waiter when seated near the table.
Food was adequate, but not worth a special trip; the alcohol markup was excessive.
This was a second visit - the first had been encouraging, but the second disappointing, so unlikely to return.
On leaving, did notice 2 appealing menus nearby, so will definitely be back to the area.
We absolutely loved our experience. The food was incredible. Our waiter, Ken was kind and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the music and that it was too loud so we could converse. Overall great experience.
I have been to Zee Grill many times and have always been satisfied. This time, we were taking friends who were newcomers to the place. They requested a card so they could recommend it to others. Great food, easy-listening music, fantastic service!
Great as usual. Have been coming here since the early 80's. It only gets better.
We were dining with friends and chose this restaurant as a midway point for the two couples. It proved to be an enjoyable evening with delicious food.
Clam chowder, trout pate, beautifully prepared duck, seafood ‘stew’ and grilled halibut were all delicious.
The only downside was the very haphazard and slow service. We were never sure if we had our own waiter or if it was team service. Whichever it was it really didn’t work.
During the meal we were kept occupied chatting with our friends, but after a couple of hours we began to get a little annoyed with the slow pace.
Four piping hot coffees went cold waiting for cream which required 2 requests and 10 mins till it came. Surprisingly it took 20 mins to get the bill settled. 10 spent waiting for the bill after 2 requests and 10 more for the machine to appear, after two or three requests. Eventually the men had to go to the bar to expedite it!!
Like I said the food was excellent but I would suggest management look at ‘tidying up’ their service model and possibly the caliber of staff.
We did not eat extravagantly and at $100 per head it could have been a bit better.
Always great. One of my favourites!
Service was great! Closes early, Portions not big. Order lots of apps to help fill up. Beer options only local.. meh..
Excellent food, quality drinks, and extremely polite servers makes this one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a very long time. Highly recommend!
We have been to this restaurant a number of times before, but the last was probably 15 years ago. This place is a gem. I wish I lived closer to enjoy it more frequently. I had the Zee Salad. An outstanding presentation of the classic Caesar salad. Absolutely delicious. For an entrée I had the King Cole Duck. It was cooked perfectly medium rare as it should be, accompanied with two quenelles of potato....very yummy...a wonderful mix of mushrooms, tender haricots vert and a magnificent sauce. Just simply excellent. The service was also outstanding.
Thank you Chef and your team.
Three of us ate here and enjoyed ourselves - between us we had the crab cakes, zee salad, duck and encrusted panko halibut. All delicious and beautifully served. We did find the noise level
High which impeded our conversation. Great service.
Food was absolutely fantastic- Scallops and Mussels to start, and a half lobster dinner to finish. Everything was perfectly cooked, prepared and presented.
However.... our server really looked like he didn't want to be there and it was a bit off putting with the rest of the fantastic experience.
The quality of food and service was phenomenal. Staff were accomodating and always there to check up on you. The food was fresh and soooo good.
Absolutely wonderful. Food and Service was excellent. After going to the "best" seafood restaurant in Boston for virtually identical meal, Zee Grill beat Boston!
Came for anniversary. Great selection of oysters, though not cheap. All food choices were amazing. Service was great, attentive and helpful. Indoor dining room very noisy (patron conversations) so we decided to eat outside. Nice little patio, open air. Only suggestion would be to relocate dumpsters which are just outside patio area. Didn't notice any smell but did take away from the ambience. Would go back.
We have been coming here for 35 years or more and tend to come on special events. This past Saturday marked our 49th anniversary. We can count on great service, fabulous food and a pleasant atmosphere. Next year, the big 5 0, and we'll be back to share it with you.
It’s not a cheap evening, but for a special occasion it’s worth every dollar. Love the food and ambiance. Definitely recommend.
Amazing food! The seafood was fresh and delicious. My 7 year old love the fresh Newfoundland Cod fish and chips and my 9 year old tried his first oyster!
Our reservation was for 6:30pm, and half an hour later the place was pretty much full. So reservations are definitely recommended especially for Saturday dinner. Beautiful interiors, cozy seating. We sat at the patio. Service is pretty good. Food was quite good as well. Not blown away by the starters we had (chowder and Panko shrimp), but the mains were much better (grilled lobster & halibut). They have a small menu, FYI, and the only non-seafood items are duck and steak. Would we return? Probably not. Would we recommend to friends? Sure, if they are in the area and craving seafood.
Service could have been more attentive
We really enjoyed the quiet ambience and our delicious dinner.
Lovely spot - nice brick walls and homey decor. Food is good - largely fish and seafood and it's nicely prepared. Service is nice and efficient without being instrusive or making you feel rushed.
Reasonable and always reliable Great casual seafood without attitude
Enjoyed some wonderful fresh oysters! Dessert was delicious also. A most enjoyable time
Fantastic!! As usual. 👍🏻
Had the fish taco sampler and side of fries and side of green beans both sides were larger than anticipated and the fish tacos were very tasty! I didn't realise there would be so much dip for them I didn't finish the dips at all.
the food is great. really try the food. good atmosphere nice place for dinner. Staffs are okay. there were some goods and some not. they can really improve on like pay attention to our table. let the guest know bottle of water cost $7?! (750ml mineral water) our server didn't inform us the cost. all she said was big bottle of flat water.
Great local surprise! Very attentive service. Food was outstanding.... can’t wait to go back!
While my fellow diners said the oysters they had were excellent, and my grilled calamari were grilled to tender perfection, both the New England chowder and the Zee salad were surprisingly bland-tasting. The salad, especially, needed something. If it was meant to approximate a Caesar, as our (knowledgeable, attentive and patient) server said, it should have included the traditional flavour boosters of anchovy and Parmesan, and it had neither. The lemon flavour was too faint for my liking, as well. But the desserts made up for it. The pressed chocolate souffle and sticky toffee pudding were especially delish, including the very creamy homemade vanilla ice cream. I look forward to returning soon to try more menu items!
Always a good time at Zee Grill! Food was delicious, service and ambience just right. I’ve been there many times and I’m never disappointed.
One of our favourite restaurants. Food, as always, was excellent. Service, not so much. It was hard to know who was looking after us and hard to get the attention of anybody when we needed some service. I assume it was a momentary lapse or poorly trained staff.
Nice neighbourhood restaurant, enjoyed the seafood. My only complaint would be size of fries.
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name.......................
Zee always provides a comfortable environment and consistently well prepared food selections including my favourites, the Zee salad and the Half lobster dinner. Try the ice cream for desert.
As always, excellent service, phenomenal food. One of our favourite spots to dine.
I took my wife to Zee restaurant, she had the lobster it was big and tasteful. I had the 8 oz steak 🥩 it was great 👍🏿 we also had shrimp 🍤 crab 🦀 cakes and wine 🍷.
We will be back.
