I have alwsys bern a fan of Zees. Even with the craziness of Covid19 the service and food was wonderful.
Amazing night the food and flavours were wonderful!
We both had the Northern Lights drink with a demo from the bartender and it was the most AMAZING drink I have ever seen and tasted really made for a fun and special experience !
We felt very safe the whole time with great distancing and vigilant service!
Overall a wonderful night!
One of best place in NOTL . Great food and nice ambience. Service was ok but felt a bit rushed.
We’ve temporarily relocated to the area and this is our third visit to
Zee’s Grill. The food has been consistently outstanding, the service top notch, and the ambience can’t be beat. Their signature turkey sandwich is just so good!!
We’ve loved it so much we’ve made additional reservations to introduce other friends to this true gem.
Thanks to everyone at Zee’s!
We just came up for a drive and wine tour
The food and service is always great. We were very happy to see Scott our server, who is always pleasant. We look forward each summer for the pass 15 years going to Zee's restaurant.
Lovely! Good food and service.
Would recommend dining here.
We had a very enjoyable dinner at Zees. Fantastic staff and the food was delicious! Very attentive staff and we didn’t feel rushed at all. Highly recommended!
Loved the Covid attention and special request my diverticulitis bout , really appreciated, thanks .
Our one year anniversary can not be any better...
Everything was perfect
100% I will come back again
We had a great time! The food was good. Our server, Joe, was fantastic! He was very attentive and professional! I would definitely be back and would request Joe to be our server.
Bouiilabaise was too salty and not enough broth, shrimp taco very good, excellent service and good Trius chardonnay
After a long day of wine tastings, zee’s was perfect! We loved the veranda and ambiance of the outdoor seating. Service was attentive and consistent. Definitely would recommend as well as visit again!
Had lunch on the patio with my husband. It was a lovely wrap around porch with a nice atmosphere. White sangria was refreshing. Food was all great, but the shrimp tacos were to die for. Best I’ve had !
Will definitely be back.
Our server, Jenn, was amazing. Food was on point, plentiful and well seasoned. The mixed berry compote was so good we bought a container to take home. Highly recommend.
Zees has 2 patios available now for dining until the interior can open.
One is outside with umbrella-covered tables. The other is on a open-air verandah and is much more comfortable.
The food and service are very good but the menu is very limited right now and many of our past favourites are no longer offered.
Overall, it wasn't bad. Our server Kim was excellent. Found our main courses to be much too salty and one of the apps (tuna dish) was lacking in flavour and the tuna was more seared than expected.
Really enjoyed zees fully covered patio. The service was great, food was on point and the atmosphere is lovely. Nothing bad to say will be back again soon.
Service and food was greay
Very pleasant. Good food and I look forward to a new menu In the spring
We had a lovely dinner at Zee’s. Our waiter Trevor was great. I thought the wine was a bit expensive at $48 for bottle that sells for 15.95 in the LCBO.
We would definitely go again.
Another fantastic experience at Zee's. The food was phenomenal, and the staff were amazing. Really is a highlight of our trip to NOTL.
We come her often. Food never disappoints. If they have the truffle fries, and the pork belly on the menu, those are awesome (but it’s more of a summer thing). Truffle gnocchi was a decent substitute this time.
The only issue at our recent visit was one of the people in our party tried to pour himself a cup of coffee from the lobby while waiting for the rest of us to arrive for dinner (it’s a hotel restaurant, so it’s all attached) and the front desk clerk admonished him saying “that’s only for hotel guests”. Never mind that we had a reservation for 14 at the restaurant...and we were literally, the only people there. I mean really? Seemed a bit petty, especially considering there wasn’t exactly a crowd. AT ALL.
A bonus- they have electric vehicle chargers. Those, I can understand have hotel guest priority. Although we’ve also been here when gas vehicles have hogged up those spots, and the staff don’t seem too inclined to call those people out on it.
Despite this, dinner was excellent and waiter was awesome. Will be back.
Outstanding service and food. The waiter was exceptional!
The desserts sounded delicious on paper. However the crème brule was much smaller and much sweeter than anticipated. The Death by Chocolate was very scant with the fudge.
Zees is always a great stop on any weekend for dinner while in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Service is excellent; the food tastes excellent and cooked to perfection.
The food was awesome at Zees and our waiter Sean made it a perfect dinner!!
This restaurant went above my expectations. The personal service was awesome. The knowledge regarding the menu by our server was very welcome.
Excellent food, perfect portion sizes, friendly service. Very positive experience overall. Will definitely go back!
Absolutely wonderful. Our server Trevor was extraordinary. It was a treat spending time with him. His service was impeccable. The food was excellent. Our favorite restaurant in Niagara on the Lake.
Second time at Zees and once again they did not disappoint. The meal was delicious and the service was genuine and friendly, the atmosphere was lovely, a quiet gem on Niagara on The Lake. I requested a seat by the fireplace and while it couldn't be guaranteed, I was told they would make a best effort, and they succeeded so I was appreciative of that nice touch and Trevor who attended our table was just tops! I'll def be back.
Good food, great service. Professional staff for every meal we had in the restaurant. Food looked , and tasted good.
Attractive restaurant with attentive and helpful service.
Wonderful food. Wide selection of meat as well as vegetarian options. The mushroom risotto and gnocchi were hot and extremely tasty. The ice cream had such lovely tastes. The use of greens was lovely. The "Death by Chocolate" was satisfying and did not make us feel overly full by the end of the meal. Overall, a wonderful night with delightful food. I would HIGHLY recommend it to friends and family. We frequent Niagara-on-the-Lake yearly and this is the 4th year we have visited this stellar restaurant. I look forward to visiting again next year!
Outstanding service, exceptional food. The chef is a master at his craft.
Everything about our experience was superb - ambiance, service and truly wonderful food. We both had the baulabaise and it ranked with the best I have ever enjoyed, including in Paris. EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY!
I live nearby and Zees is one of the restaurants I go to for special occasions. The food is always fresh and delicious. Service excellent. The menu changes frequently so there is always something new to try. In Summer the wrap-around porch is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch, or dinner for that matter. My guest enjoyed it as well. I will return! Best to make reservations.
Based on this one experience I would not recommend Zees - at least for breakfast. First, our server gave my husband and I lukewarm tea which was not fit for consumption. When we asked for tea that was hot she said she was unable to make it any hotter so we had it replaced with coffee, which was fine. Second, we each ordered a bowl of fruit with our poached egg - the egg was fine but the fruit was mainly old and tasteless - a few fresher pieces were sprinkled on the top but everything underneath was barely edible and we left most of it.
We were guests of the Shaw Club Hotel which was lovely, so we expected much more. We would recommend the hotel but advise people to eat elsewhere, at least for breakfast, which is unfortunate.
This is a must do before a show at Shaw Festival Theatre. At first arrival, one of our servers first questions was regarding going to see a show on that night. They made every effort for us to get everything we wanted and the bill in more than enough time to make it to the show we had tickets for. That is only the beginning, the service was spectacular, the food was unbelievable (we had the Arctic char and the truffle gnocchi....both were just incredible), and dessert just topped off the whole meal perfectly. Their heated patio was a fantastic place to sit and enjoy a great holiday season meal. We cannot wait to go back.
Great eggs benny and banana bread french toast and our server Hilary was so helpful
