Fabulous service from Melinda. The food was amazing and came out quickly. My egg nog Brule for dessert was perfection. We both had turkey dinners with my favourite veg, Brussel sprouts. Can't say anything negative and would definitely go again when we're in NOTL.

The food was tasty and the meat course cooked to tender perfection, if a bit 'over sauced' and salty'. The prices were somewhat higher(compared to Oakville), but the portions were generous. The hard surfaces increased the noise level. More booths perhaps would help to dampen the sounds.
The wait staff was efficient, courteous with just the right amount of attention paid to our comfort and enjoyment.

Location across from Shaw Festival theatre and wait staff were sensitive to getting you out in time for 1 pm play. Small lunch menu but very good quality. All offerings very lunch sized with no larger mains in case you want your main meal at noon. Local wines but interesting choices and offered half litre. I was here about a month ago and I was disappointed to find the house salad no longer has goat cheese on top and the grilled cheese changed from Brie with apple jam which was excellent to tomato basil. Shrimp tacos excellent- tortilla toasted in grill while some restaurant just serve the tortilla cold.

We were going to the theatre afterwards, and the server made sure she and the kitchen knew that. She was thoughtful, offered suggestions,, didn’t rush us, had a sense of humour and was overall terrific. As was the meal. I had the Arctic char which was perfect. And my husband enjoyed his pork chop.

Dinner was outstanding! The Arctic Char was the best I’ve ever had, and the Beef Tenderloin was cooked to perfection. Vegetables were fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. Our server was most attentive and accommodating. Overall I highly recommend Zee’s Grill.

The first thing that struck me was that the solarium floor appeared as though it had not been swept (it was 11:30am). I did not have a large appetite, so only ordered the Caesar salad. I requested to have a bit of bread on the side. Although I did receive it and it was delicious, it felt as though the kitchen was doing me a special favour by granting me the bread. My salad was tossed in roughly twice the amount of dressing it should have been. Instead of the slice of pancetta being distributed throughout the salad, it was served as a slice. While this was visually attractive, it requires the customer to process and distribute the pancetta through the salad him/herself. It’s nicer, in a higher end restaurant, for this step to be done by the kitchen. Also, the pancetta was chewy, dry, and difficult to cut through, especially with a regular table knife. My husband found that the tomato basil soup was overly bland. He also found that the coleslaw inside his shrimp taco had too much dressing and that the shrimp themselves were covered in too much sauce. It was dripping out of the tacos. He found the flavour of the tacos to be ordinary. This was our first visit to the restaurant. After having seen good ratings for the restaurant, we were expecting that the food would be excellent.

We like to try new places to eat in NOTL when we visit. The location is very good and the seating very nice with plenty of windows overlooking the main drag where you can watch the horse drawn buggies go by. service was very attentive and friendly if not a bit stuffy for the type of restaurant environment. the hostess was very upbeat and welcoming. We ordered our food and within a few short minutes it was delivered to our table - this seemed a bit quick especially since my meal was a risotto that typically takes a while to prepare. Having said this it was generous and tasty. My wife’s Turkey sandwich was sliced processed meat - not overly appetizing - for the price I would have expected better. The soup starter was very good. Covid safety protocols were excellent.

We have eaten there many times and it was always exceptional and excellent. This time, perhaps due to Covid and the cool fall season and other things, the menu was restricted and everything just good.

Decent experience to start but then I noticed everyone got bread in the beginning. We already had our app + main and no bread was offered. Our waiter “Sean” said because I got the charcuterie board, it already had bread so he didn’t offer. He offered me bread as I was paying the bill. How does that make sense. At least offer us if we want more bread at the start. I had to ask his manager if they offer free bread. Anyways the most rude and disrespectful waiter ever. Personally I tip on service and one mess up gets you $0 tip. I didn’t tip him at all then he see the receipt, throws it on our table and walks off. He needs to learn from respect and manners when you don’t receive a tip. Good food, but service is trash and this will definitely ruin your night. I wouldn’t recommend this place at all.
