    The attentive service rather than the food made the dining experience. Portion sizes too large , more attention to quality

    We've been to Zees many times, and always enjoy it. It's a bit pricey, but the service is great and the food is good. This time, we shared a charcuterie board with the only issues being that we don't eat meat -- which we didn't tell the server so it's on us, and also the amount of food is over the top. I asked about taking a slice of Brie home, and the server brought a cardboard container, which I forgot to use. My bad. I'd definitely recommend the restaurant my small screw ups! :)

    We had the fixed price menu for 2 and found the options available to be varied, enjoyable and extremely well prepared. The wine menu is Niagara focused and the red we chose paired with the food beautifully. All in all a very nice dinner experience.

    This was our first visit to Zee's since before the pandemic. Happy to report it is still very good. The menu is not long but offers plenty of variety. Wine selections are almost all local, something that is not nearly common enough in Niagara region. One special recommendation and one minor complaint...save some room for the lemon-lavender cheesecake, which is quite superb. And charging extra for bread in a restaurant at this price point is a bit naughty -- the owners should rethink that. Overall a good experience and we promise not to wait so long for our next visit.

    Had an excellent meal here. My wife's tenderloin was perfect. The chicken marsala was good but it lacked much Marsala taste. I thought it was just a red wine sauce. But still good.

    The server was incredible, clean, nice environment. The steak just wasn’t good quality, really fatty. Lobster was super overcooked &n hard to pull out of the shell. 100$ per plate menu on NYE & just didn’t feel like the food was on par. Won’t return but other than that we loved our server & such a nice, unique little place!

    Would have liked to have had more lactose free choices on the menu. I brought my sister there for her 60th birthday from Woodstock, and I live in Mississauga. Though I mentioned it was for a birthday nothing special was offered. Not sure I would come back again. Loved the woman’s washroom doors.

    Chose your restaurant after reading reviews and looking at photos. Worked out well for me as I have relatives living in Youngstown NY so we have a new meeting place. I was impressed by the friendly staff and ambience. Our waiter was excellent and patient, food perfect for a luncheon, hence the five stars. Will reserve again next time l visit Niagara on the Lake.

    Service was good, food was really disappointing. We had the turkey sandwich and brisket with cheese. Both lacking in taste. Kids had grilled cheese, which had very little cheese. And the chicken fingers were overcooked. Simple meals that were somehow cooked poorly.
