Booked for a celebratory engagement dinner for 8pm. Once seated didn’t see a server for nearly 15 mins. Another 20 mins for a drink to arrive. At the 1hr 45 min mark we had still only been served one drink and one appetizer. It was now 945 and we were starving. We got up and left and went across the street to milestones who looked after us.
Appalling service for a hotel of this calibre. We did complain the next morning to the food and beverage manager who compensated us with a take away high tea. However this did not detract fro the fact that our special weekend was ruined

Each year two friends and I look forward to having high tea at Zoe's to celebrate Christmas instead of exchanging gifts. Unfortunately, this year was not the experience we have come to expect. It began with being told that the reservation times had changed but, that we would be accommodated. This was delivered in a condescending manner and was not information which was necessary. Our table was, as requested, in the window but, in an uncomfortable corner. Our server was a pleasant young man who, however, was rather over zealous. After asking us for our tea choices we informed him we would like cocktails first. When the drinks were delivered we were once again asked about tea. Once again we said we wanted to wait. This happened several times until we gave in. Shortly thereafter the teapots arrived at the table along with the towers. We still had not finished even half of our drinks. The rest of the afternoon went the same way and we felt very rushed. To top off the day it turned out that one of the husbands had left his credit card earlier in the day to treat us. This information had not been communicated properly and we all paid our own bills. Unfortunately, our experience at Zoe's was not the elegant relaxing one we have come to expect. We will be looking for somewhere else to celebrate Christmas next year.

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.
