Food was excellent (beef tenderloin) and service was very good. Ambiance was boring and basically a big open room where you could hear every individual in the room. Nothing done to creat a unique atmosphere... music was odd choice and one speaker so didnt sound good. Based on food and service they have the opportunity to turn the space into something that is a fully stellar experience.

In Niagara on the Lake to see A Christmas Carol and had a lovely dinner at Zees Grill.
This was our 4th dinner at the restaurant and we have never been disappointed!

Didn’t care much for the fall menu. Too many strange combinations. Tasted heavy. Bouliabaise was delicious, but extra salty, fish with potato rosti combo way too heavy. Service and ambiance wonderful. Would go back for sure

Our service and server were excellent. Very close to the Shaw Festival which was handy for us as we could keep our car there after the show.
The food and presentation was excellent with an adequate portion.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you.

If you are looking for a pleasant spot for lunch in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Zees is for you. The food and service are always good. We sat in the heated verandah, but the heaters were not working properly near our table. Unfortunately, I caught a chill and ended up with a bad cold.

We enjoyed a delicious quiet meal on a blustery night. Service was attentive without being overbearing. My artic char was moist and flavorful. I don't know about my husband's pork tenderloin because he wouldn't share. Lovely setting for a night out.

Very nice dinner experience. Good service. Pumpkin soup was a little too spicy and the fish stew had a lot of green stuff in it that was extraneous—otherwise delicious. The tenderloin Was perfectly grilled and the potatoes were creamy and delicious. Music was a little loud. Would definitely return!

We went to Zee’s for lunch on a cold, wet Sunday. The glassed in dining area was bright, warm and quiet. The wait staff were cordial and very helpful explaining the menu and describing the wines on the menu. It was a pleasure to find many local wines, some of which are not available at the LCBO. The food was delicious. We lingered over our coffee and did not feel pressured or rushed in any way. I would certainly return to Zee’s and recommend it to my friends.

The atmosphere was very friendly and comfortable yet elegant feel. The bouillabaisse was amongst the best I have had. Great flavors and huge shrimp and scallop along with mussels and a bit of lobster.
My husband had mushroom risotto and said it was also great.

Service was fast and polite at 6:30 pm although the place was not busy. Lobster dish was delicious, but quite small with lots of risotto. Prices are a little high for what you get, but nice restaurant.

It's one of the best choice in this little town center.
The window seats offer you both a view of the streets and some sunshine,during the good days.
It's been a long time that I can taste a pumpkin bisque which is not too salty, and the choices are relatively healthy, too.
We order a french dip which have a beef sandwich and a potato fries, and a soup. Share by two.
I have snooping the plates on other tables. the pasta looks good too.
Overall I will recommend this this during your stay of Niagara on the lake.

Zee’s was new to us. Have been to most restaurants in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Great atmosphere, quiet. Across from Shaw Theater. Started with curried mussels which were tasty. Then on to lobster poached in butter with lobster risotto. Too generous! The best creme brûlée ever. Thick crispy top that broke with a perfect crack! Splurged on a $$$ bottle of Cabernet. Would recommend this to anyone who didn’t have kids. Would not bring kids here. Very small bar area. Would eat here next time we’re in the area.

We really enjoyed the food (wrap, salad, smoked salmon, gespachio soup). The table in the conservatory was bright and enticing. Lovely ambience. Attentive wait staff. Lunch was served in a timely manner, and we had time to enjoy a brief stroll before attending the play at Shaw. Relaxed timing to get to the show on time! The restaurant was close to the theatre so we only had to park once.

Four of us dined there before attending a performance at the Festival Theatre conveniently located across the street. The menu does not provide a lot of variety but the selections we chose were excellent. We took advantage of the BYO wine feature, part of the reason we selected this restaurant. However we were very disappointed to find a total charge of $20 corkage for simply removing a cork from the bottle that we brought and pouring into each wine glass. Would the corkage charge have been less if we brought a screw-topped bottle? The corkage charge should be clearly listed on their website, which should also include a list of all beverages with prices.

Best Surf & Turf we have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection, prawns were delicious and dessert was to die for. I 100% recommend anyone looking for an amazing dining experience in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Amazing! Our server (Kim I believe) was fantastic. She recommended our entrees and we loved them. The swordfish was one of the best meals I've ever had. Delicious. The ambience was perfect. We wanted a romantic quiet restaurant. I can't wait to come back. Thank you for an excellent experience!

We had minimal time between shows at the Shaw. They had a very reasonable lunch menu, with good choices. Tasted great and they got us in and out with ease and a cheerful manner. What more could you ask?

I have eaten here more than 5 times and this was the first entree I did not consider good. I ordered the swordfish and it was overcooked and dry. My wife's salmon was, however, excellent.
