Never a disappointment at Zee! We ate under the stars on a beautiful night Jack, Rian and all take such good care of us - always our favourite date place

Unfortunately our service was not great. Pleasant but not attentive. Had to refill our wine glasses ourselves throughout and had to ask for our water to be refilled. No one was paying attention to our table other than to deliver the food which was good and made up for the service.

The atmosphere, service and quality of the food were excellent. The only downside was that there were no specials available. A couple of extra choices would have been welcome.

We had the rocket salad. It was very small. The seafood poke bowl was okay but pricy for the size. My husband had the lobster roll. It was 31.00. He said the hot dog bun was ordinary , the portion of lobster could have been more generous and to throw less than a handful of potato chips on the plate was alarming. Really, potato chips in what was once a top rated restaurant and such a small portion. My friend had the ahi tuna dinner. He wanted to go for dinner afterwords. We ordered French fries. They were 8.00. Couldn’t they fill the tiny cone shaped vessel to the top. It looked half full. Potatoes are cheap. Give me a break. We were disappointed. We hadn’t been here in a long time and it’s the last time. Sorry.

We have had better oysters before. These were small, and watery. As for the lobster roll, it was hard to actually taste loster. Lots of filler. Alcoholic drinks were also watery.

We were there for anniversary. We sat outdoor while by the street but it did not affect our experience dining here. Amazing food consistent from appetizers to main course to deserts (highly recommend : poke salad, steak frites, sea food stew, cream caramel, toffee pudding). I don’t know how they did it - excellent food but without much a wait at all. I plan to visit again soon.

Great service. Seafood was high quality and fresh. Patio ambiance although right on the road was very nice. Highly enjoyed. Just felt there could have been more flavour in one of my dishes that was kind of bland. Other than that it was great. I will return

Although the menu is limited, the quality and taste of their dishes are amazing. I had the grilled sea bass fish that had a delicate butter taste- best fish I have ever had. The tuna pancake was really good too. And my margarita was perfect, not the usual watered down cocktails I often get at other places. It's pricey and portions are small but nevertheless worth it. Ps- the sticky toffee pudding is delicious as well! Enough for 2 people to share:)

We've been coming. to Zee Grill for years now, including multiple pick-up orders throughout the Great Pandemic of 2020-21, & I highly recommend them.

All the food is great, with a particular shout-out to their excellent clam & corn chowder. Fish & chips are also quite delightful & their shellfish is always high-quality & excellent.

Best seafood in midtown.

Friendly staff, outstanding food. The poke salad, ahi tuna and crab cakes are a must try appetizer. As a main we chose the fish stew sudao and a steak which they were kind enough to butterfly for us. As we shared everything the staff included serving spoons with each meal.

ordered fish and chips. I asked for frites to be hot and crispy. They were cold, soft and mushy,. Fish was also just barely warm. Disappointing. For the price especially disappointing

I used to come here often - probably last time I was here was a year before COVID. The courtyard patio dining was always a lovely spot. That is what I thought I was reserving for dinner last night. But no - it was a table on the street - beside Toronto traffic noise and exhaust fumes. I asked about a table in the courtyard - they said they would see - had to ask twice - no go. They really should post the two "patio" dining options when you reserve - so you know what you are getting. There were very few other diners on the street patio but it still took a long long time to be served. No cocktail menu. Once our actual waiter came - he was terrific: efficient and pleasant. Food was average. I will not go back there again - ever. It's a shame - this used to be a top notch dining establishment.

Great place to eat, we couldn't decide between a couple of dishes so the staff made their suggestions - the food was delicious and the staff were very attentive, they asked us if we were in a rush or we wanted to enjoy the wine and take a slower approach to the food (we opted for slower) It was our first visit, but we will definitely be back for many more visits.
