We hadn't been to Zee Grill in a number of years but it's always been a favourite of ours. We decided on the restaurant for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was great, as we expected it would be. From the oysters on through the main courses it was excellent - calamari, scallops, and tuna all top notch. Staff were very accommodating (Chris took care of us), including keeping flowers in the walk-in fridge for a later surprise. Highly recommended and we will be back.

The food and service were incredible. I don’t normally like seafood but after having the food here, I’m a huge seafood fan now! Will definitely come back.

Another night of perfection. One of the city's best oyster shuckers on board. Food portions, presentation and taste outstanding. Kitchen, wait staff on top of their game. A wine list that is varied and not breaking the bank to enjoy. Well done!

Food and drinks were very expensive. Wait staff told us to order everything at once because they were very busy but there were only 3 tables occupied when we were ordering. Prices of food and drinks were astronomical. One piece of oyster for $4 and one of the oysters served to us did not have the oyster’s flesh only the shell. Will not come back to this place.

Took a date to here for oysters on Wednesday night. My date liked it so much that we reserved for dinner the next night. Food is great, service friendly and the ambience is warm and casual. I especially love the special calamari noodles with shrimp and lobster. Very unique and a winner all around.

We went for a birthday dinner. While the food was great, the service was abysmal. The staff needs to be given a dress code (our waiter wore a baggy old t-shirt - didn't even introduce himself as our waiter, the bartender had a backwards baseball hat.) We ordered cocktails, which were very good, however, the food was brought five minutes later. The waiter quickly explained he was going to open my salad, but never even gave me a chance to say I was ready. The waitress who brought our food ignored my request for salt and pepper, and then when I had to call her back loudly, she just brought over a pepper mill and started to put it on. The whole dining experience was over in about an hour. As well, I had indicated it was a birthday when I booked online, however, there was no mention of this at all. Although we liked the food, we wouldn't return.

I dined with my friends and the food was delicious. I had the baked oysters which were so delicious and then had the calamari noodle special. It was so tasty. The broth was light and perfectly seasoned and the tiny clams were so fresh. I can't wait to return!

I have enjoyed 3 wonderful dinners at Zee Grill since February but Thursday May 16 was completely unacceptable. The Oysters Rockefeller tasted like sea water, with a little spinach some bland cheese, then microwaved. Zee salad good as always. Our main was the special, thinly sliced calamari, baby clams and Fogo Island shrimps. It was tasteless with no spices except salt, no sauce and the clams were so salty we could not eat them. We sent it back and the second main came which we could eat but it was unremarkable.
I assume the regular chef may have left, been sick or away. I could not believe the decline in food quality. I had taken a friend telling her how good it was and ended up being very embarrassed.

I had an excellent meal. I chose the specials, and had fried octopus and pan-seared halibut. Both courses were outstanding. Fish was fresh and expertly cooked. Vegetables also great. Recommend the restaurant to anyone.

Zee grill never disappoints. The oysters were fresh and the entrees were delicious. Can’t say enough about the desert...sticky toffee pudding and the lemon meringue ice cream sandwich. Thanks for another great experience.

Whenever we go I wonder why we do not go more often as that would enable me to memorize the names of some of the oysters.....

We love the service at Zee Grill. We like to sit at the bar in this cozy resto and enjoy the lively atmosphere and some really good seafood. The owners are always very gracious to us and give great recommendations on the menu or the wine list. The bartender also gives great service with drinks, oysters and knows the menu inside and out.

Zee Bar is the perfect spot for great seafood, outstanding customer service in a welcoming family restaurant.

Other than having the lights turned on us at 10pm on a Saturday to leave - a good meal. For sure felt rushed off our 8pm reservation. We closed the place at 1015.
