    Some of the food was very tasty, including our beef entree, a Caesar salad, and the house bread. The cheese plate was disappointing and the pork belly unremarkable. They servers were kind and helpful, but it seemed a bit understaffed. The experience was good, but for price it seemed it should have been exceptional.

    Enjoyed an excellent dinner with friends at Zees. We wanted a laid back dinner to enjoy some conversation and great food. We were not disappointed. Our server, Kim, never rushed us but was there when we needed her. The surf and turf, artic char and halibut were all done to perfection with excellent sides. We will be back.

    The restaurant was steps away from The Festival Theatre. It was nicely decorated. Service was very good. Celebrated our anniversary and they gave us a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. A nice place for dinner. I had the tenderloin and it was cooked how I asked. I would go again.

    Service was excellent. Food was average at best. My potato was raw in the middle and the veal could have used more sauce and it was unevenly cooked. They was barely any sauce on my plate. My wife had halibut that really did not have any flavor.

    There were 5 of us, including my partner, for whom we were celebrating a birthday. 3 of us had the Halibut and 2 had the steak. The meals were cooked perfectly, including the vegetables. Some restaurants don’t get that right, especially the veggies. The service was perfect! No long wait times and plenty of pleasantries. A candle on the birthday girl’s dessert was a nice touch. I would recommend this restaurant and come back again. Others in our group said the same.

    My wife and I had a lovely time at Zees. We had a 5:30 reservation, which was good for getting to a performance. Kim was our server and, just as when we last dined a Zees pre-COVID, she was friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful: delicious beef and prawns in the correct proportions. And a nicely chosen glass of local Ontario red. The porch was a good place to be on this evening.

    Our waiter was fabulous. The hostess grabbed me an emergency sugared beverage without hesitation. A+ experience for us all around. Our food was great - we had the cheese plate, ahi tuna, Caesar salad, and surf & turf (tenderloin & prawns). All done as ordered. And I was able to get the chipotle butter on the side so I could use as much or as little as I needed for my steak.

    Compared to a few years ago we found that the quality of the food had declined and the service bordered on poor. We were very disappointed and wont be returning unless there are an abundance of reviews that show it's improved.

    The setting reminded us of a comfortable covered plantation veranda. Comfortable. Roomy. Relaxing. Nice blend of indoors and out. The service was excellent too. The mature servers were attentive, efficient and pleasant. The menu was varied with choices that satisfied each of us. Being just across the street from the Shaw Festival Theatre made Zee's the perfect destination after seeing an outstanding production. We'll be back. Mike Hanson

    Not a great experience. Our waitress was less than cheerful. The wines offered by the glass were all from the Niagara region, and the reds were awful. Very little in terms of allergy accommodation. Salad was partly wilted. Risotto was good.

    The only negative comment was I didn't love the Halibut dish. Not much flavour and the rosti was mushy. Needed more texture and a taste.

    Had lunch on the verandah before a theatre performance. Service was punctual which was important for us. I enjoyed my salad Nicole but believe a piece of French bread should have accompanied the salad.

    The setting and service was good but the food is mediocre and overpriced. I had the salad Niçoise. The tuna was fine but put on top of tasteless potatoes, green beans and a few olives sprinkled around the plate. My companion’s Turkey sandwich had real roasted sliced turkey but very few slices compared to the thickness of the bread. Very disappointed in the list offering Niagara wines by the glass.

    After a mix up with seating we settled into a lovely lunch on the porch. 3 of us ordered salads. It would have been nice to have a roll or bread with our “greens.” Service was very good. We will return next season.
