I chose to eat at Zee's because they had a vegan option on their menu and I was not disappointed. The restaurant was quiet, the wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious.

We were staying at the hotel for a few days and had a specific menu that was part of our stay package. The food was okay...main course arrived cold. Have previously enjoyed a dinner from the regular menu that was more imaginative.
Breakfast each morning consisted of generous flavourful portions.

So nice to have a high end restaurant in the hotel. It is especially nice when it is a nasty night. The beef ribs are absolutely delicious.

All was excellent. However, the cheese and meat board is huge but it’s very deceiving: the actual food amount is very small.

We had a delicious meal and the service was outstanding. My only complaint is how difficult it is ti carry on a quiet conversation with someone across the table. It is a very open room with high ceilings and the noise level was very high.

Food was delicious, sophisticated, and artfully presented. Service was friendly and attentive. Bauetiful location directly across from the Shaw Festival Theatre. Perfect place for a perfect date night in my books- tasteful dinner and a show!
The short ribs were incredible and a generous portion- my husband had to finish mine (he was pleased to help). The Artic Char was terrific too.
I love a cheese plate, and this one did not disappoint.

It's a great place to eat, the food is outstanding! Great service and outstanding value compared to other restaurants in NOTL. I had the short ribs, fall of the bone tender and lots of flavour huge portion. You won't leave there hungry. Chef Matt Tattrie has nailed it at Zees, I highly recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our traditional Christmas dinner all prepared & presented with a twist. The best mashed potatoes ever! And wow cranberry sauce! Cranberry orange amaretto cocktail was like being in a candy shop.
Excellent service, waiter Jay, all done with a sense of humour.
We will hope to return prior to next Christmas.

We were here with friends on a weekend get away. Our meal was included as part of a promotional hotel rate and we ordered off a special menu which included 3 courses. We did not expect the value we received as this was after all a reduced price! The meal was beautifully presented, the portion sizes VERY generous and it was delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was quiet, elegant and relaxed. We would definitely return for another visit.

We arrived earlier for our table and it was no problem, the waitress took us straight in. It was fairly busy however the room was warm and like the waitress very welcoming.
The service was very efficient and the food was equally as good coming to the table in good time and very hot too.
As always a great visit to Zees.

First time there, would not go back. Four people three meals were fine. The fourth which was supposed to be short ribs was not that cut of meat. It looked like two huge bones that you would give your dog. My husband said it was very grissley and lacked flavour.

Laura was an amazing server. She was knowledgeable about her menu and an amazing young woman. Zees has an outstanding menu and there was nothing we did not enjoy. We love food and we love Zees. We are just sorry that our chef was not able to make an appearance but that is not a criticism. We WILL be back.
