Beautiful location and setting, and the ambience was fantastic. However, the service was less than great (a bit slow, forgot part of the order, etc.). As for the food, we started with the Charcuterie Board which was good, but the meat to bread ratio was a unbalanced. For the mains, we proceeded with the "Sunday Gravy" (lamb ragout) Tagliatelle which was absolutely divine, as well as the Steak Au Poivre which was a bit underwhelming. We ended the meal with Pumpkin Creme Brulee for dessert, which was very good. I would certainly return, but would order differently next time.

We returned after an excellent experience in October. The food was still good and service was excellent. The bread of the cucumber sandwiches was a little dry on the edges. Not sure if that was due to our late seating. We would return if we are in town again

Such a warm welcome from our perfectly bilingual waitress who treated us like family. Steak au poivre was perfectly prepared to requested temperature. Crème brûlée with pumpkin was a hit with our 7 year old! Zoe’s Autumn drink paired perfectly with meal. Such a perfect first Canadian dinner after being on the road since 4 am.

The decor & ambience of Zoës is lovely and the much-appreciated service was attentive and unobtrusive. My friend and I were grateful to have been able to sit and chat for much longer than our allotted time.
Our high tea was lovely and really quite delicious. My one criticism was that my scones were cold and my friend had a couple of dry gluten-free desserts. On the whole , while very pricey, it was a treat and a perfect place for our reunion.
