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.

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.

Fabulous dinner with my husband. Attentive and lovely server. Food was delicious!!! We will be back. The best New Endgland chowder that my husband has ever had...my sudado dish was incredible! The fact that it is a family run business makes it even better!

Having eaten in many restaurants across the globe, and finding on par North America to be the poor cousin of fine dining I found this restaurant to be a pleasant change. Attentive service, comfortable environment without blaring music. The waiting staff new the menu including the ingredients and understood if changes needed to be applied for allergies. I would say this is one of the best seafood restaurants in Ontario, if not Canada or North America.

Definitely two thumbs up from me, and I will ensure I make a return journey when I'm in the area again. Absolutely worth the drive, but with a wine cellar as good as this....take a taxi.

The service was superb; Larry was outstanding. The food was beautiful and delicious. My only complaint the last few times dining here would be the price. In comparison to other seafood restaurants it ranks above the others in price. In my opinion. Definitely a break the bank/special occasion sorta place. But we shall return :)

No longer a consistent neighborhood choice. Too busy to make sure food is served properly or to provide adequate service. Had to track down another waiter to take our coats, bring salt, bring bill. Food delivered too quickly, main coarse while drinking cocktail and yet not hot. Not a relaxing dinner out.

Our dinner at Zee Grill was excellent. First class service. Our server was most attentive. Martinis made to our specifications. Fabulous food. Delicious oysters and well cooked fish. We have been to Zee before and we have always been pleased as we were this weekend.

Great meal as always. Sadly the female server (waitress) was a disappointment. Inattentive and lacking in charm is the kindest description. What a pity! So we deliberately left no tip. However, our enthusiasm for the food and ambiance is unaffected. We will return....

Indifferent service and small portions made our second visit to Zee Grill a displeasing evening out. I was looking forward to introducing my parents to a great restaurant but instead left hungry with no desire to return.

This is one of my fav top 5 Seafood restaurants in Toronto, even their desserts are top notch. They make their ice cream in house and the selection of raw bar are amazing, PEI Mussels are here Folks💕 Tonight I tried the halibut fish and chips, it’s the lightest greaseless yummy full of deliciousness with PEI mussels. Special thanks to Larry and my fav chef Jac Eckhardt for always accommodating me and the gang💕

A beautiful cozy place with a wonderful not to long menu but the food was amazing !!!! Appetizers were delicious I highly recommend the grill squid, lobster croquettes and Sudado.
The restaurant has a raw clam and lobster bar and a very good wine list. The service is good Our waitress was very friendly. I really loved this place. I will definitely comeback .

Food was excellent! Service was fantastic. Although, it did take a bit for our server to get to our table at first (it was busy since it was Valentine's Day, so very acceptable for the wait). Once we ordered, the food came quick and the service was very accommodating. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

The food was very good and our waiter was great, but we were completely ignored by the manager for several minutes when we entered. When I asked her about our reservation she seemed annoyed and said the previous occupants were just paying and we should sit at the bar if we want. She was surly and dour -- not a good way to welcome your dining guests.

We chose this restaurant because it is primarily a seafood restaurant and we live close by. This is our second time at this restaurant. The food was well prepared and very good. The wine list is quite expensive with the lowest price for a bottle is $49. Overall, we enjoyed this restaurant. Reservations are recommended as the restaurant was quite busy for a mid-week dinner.
