I admit, we were weary after walking in to a very slow restaurant that seemed to be left in the 90s but we were left surprised and satisfied. Our server, Joe, was very laid back and knowledgeable and didn’t think twice when we returned a bottle of wine even after he let us tried it. My husband got the seafood Seafood Pepperdale pasta and I got to duo of duck. His dish was fresh, homemade and hearty and my duck was savory and filling. We will be back. I imagine it was slow because it was off season- but it actually turned out to be a great time to go!
The food was great from the appetizer salad to the entree and the server amazing. The plates & food hot and the flavours to die for.
Zee's Grill was truly a delight. We happened upon a special prix fixe menu the particular night that we went and wow, what a deal! Three courses for $39.00 (we added a fourth one) was awesome! The food was sublime and the portions healthy. Our server "managed" our meal to perfection allowing just the right amount of time between courses. It was a lovely dinner and I would highly recommend this restaurant when in town.
I have been dining at this restuarant for over 10 yrs. This is the first time I have dined inside. Have always dined on their patio in the warmer months. Perfect evening form the service to the food. My only issue was on the reservation when aske dif it was a special occasion I noted birthday (husband) but nothing special was done at the restauramt.
excellent meal, wonderful service. will come again.
Very quiet dining room - we were sat right away. However, after we had placed our order, the waiter sat another table right beside ours - and sat their small toy-breed dog on it's own chair directly next to our table. This dog sat right up at the dinner table with it's owners throughout the entire meal, directly adjacent to where we were seated.
Neither my wife nor I have any problem with dogs in general, but being sat next to a live animal in a dining room for the duration of a three-course meal was not something we would have anticipated in a place that bills itself as a fine dining destination. The waiter explained that the patrons were guests of the pet-friendly part of the hotel, but that (in keeping with health code requirements) the establishment generally does not permit live animals where food is served. He agreed that the situation seemed abnormal, but deferred to hotel staff.
The front desk on the other hand was not even remotely apologetic, and claimed this toy dog in a handbag, sat at it's own chair at the dinner table, was in fact a service animal, whose presence at the table was a medical requirement. A likely story.
Would not return.
Our friends and I had a lovely evening. Waiter was very efficient and friendly. Food was great.
The food was incredible. Great portions. Left with full bellies. Our server Sean was professional, delivered outstanding customer service. We will definitely be back
Just one word "wow" beautiful evening... Amazing food !! Loved our waiter Jay !!!!
Another amazing meal. We were there for fabulicious and it was incredible. Zee's really cares about what they are putting infront of their customers. Food was exquisite! And the service as always was top notch.
Enjoyed our first trip to Zees. Food, atmosphere and service were excellent
Great service by our server - Joe.
Great food .
Good value for your money.
This was a repeat dining experience.
Good location to the theatre .
Excellent from the first greeting to the last morsel
Wonderful ambience and service. The food and wine were excellently paired.
The food was gourmet quality, beautifully served and delicious. The service was excellent and the servers were friendly and helpful. We had an elegant dinner for two - with salmon and duck. Dessert was chocolate creme brulee, with after dinner drinks of Irish coffee and Harvey's Bristol Cream. The next morning, we had a sumptuous breakfast with farm-fresh eggs, fresh fruit and locally made preserves to spread on the delicious whole-grain bread. All-in-all, a great dining experience!
Delicious food, and fairly quiet atmosphere. I would and will go back!
Plenty of options, knowledgeable staff and amazing food.
We went to Zee's for a new year's eve dining experience and it was our first time there. We had a 4 course meal and everything was absolutely delicious and we would definitely go back. The ambiance was cozy and intimate which was perfect for us. Our waiter was professional, knowledgeable and courteous, the salmon bisk, salad and surf and turf were the main stars ... just delicious and well portioned. The start of the evening was a little shaky as we felt ignored by the front desk staff of the hotel and we could have used some assistance as it was freezing cold out, and we didn't know how to get to the restaurant when we got in... but after figuring it out and being seated, the evening got much better. 4/5 experience and that's a good thing ;)
My husband and I live nearby and wanted to do something special for New Years brunch. We had the eggs Benedict and weren't disappointed. Our server was awesome and so was the food.
Phenomenal service and food. Can’t say enough for this restaurant. Will return the next time we’re at Niagara on the lake
Wonderful dinner at Zees. Great food, great ambiance. Waiter friendly as usual.
Although the restaurant was full, it was quiet, without the clatter of dishes and loud voices that often make quiet conversation difficult. The service was friendly and attentive; the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Substitutions due to my allergies were no problem. We’d recommend Zees Grill and will go again.
included in our order was a turkey sandwich; it was terrible. The meat obviously just came out of the fridge. It was cold meat on dry bread. There was little little dressing with poor flavour.
We had a lovely time! The food and service were great :)
We have eaten at Zees several times and always found it enjoyable, good food and good service. We will definitely recommend it to others. I have stayed at the Shaw hotel and therefore had breakfast, ate lunch on several occasions and twice for supper. Our waiter Jordon served us twice and found him knowledgable and gave us good service.
We both enjoyed our evening really appreciated the level of service and both our dinners
First time here. Came for the steak and lobster. You only get half a tail but it is cooked to perfection. We had to ask for butter. Not sure why it isn't included.
The steak was incredible. Soft, perfectly cooked and the au jus was very flavourful. The smoked mashed potatoes were a nice touch.
The crab stuffed mushrooms were ok. The crab meat needed a touch more bite.
The service was great and very knowledgeable regarding the wine selection. Being in the wine region it's to be expected.
Overall we left happy and satisfied.
Service great food great all around great and the shuttle was just an added bonus!
Wonderful service from everyone. Our server John was amazing. Food was full of flavour, artful presentation.
Excellent meal and waiter. The salmon appetizer was a wonderful surprise.
The entrees we hot and delicious. Will come again.
First time dining at Zees. It was a Sunday so fairly quiet. Had lovely table not far from fireplace.
Surpirzed by 2 pieces of sushi which came with the bread, totally out of this world, and I’m not a sushi lover.
The kale salad was exceptional (shared). The risotto and steak perfect.
Would definitely return
Food was good. EXTREMELY slow to come out. Service was okay.
Very good food and service! Definitely would recommend. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the short rib and both were delicious. Great presentation too. Serving size was perfect.
Had the braised short rib. FANTASTIC!!!
Booked a reservation here based on the Fabulicious menus online, and it was a great choice. The service was outstanding, our waiter offered good recommendations for wine, and was very accommodating. The 3 courses came out at the right times, not too much waiting, but also not having to hurry through each course. We were lucky to be seated right in front of the fireplace, in my opinion the best seat in the house! Great for a romantic dinner, or for a casual night with friends. The kale salad was incredibly flavourful and a large portion for a starter. The root beer braised ribs were so tender, and the right mix of salty and sweet. Delicious green beans and roasted potatoes for sides. Would definitely choose this restaurant the next time I'm in town.
Great over-all dining. Our favourite place. Need a menu change. Bring back the pork chop.
Food was very good - just the right number of choices. Service was great - always nice when they let you taste the wine if you're not sure before you order.
Zees has always been a big favorite of ours we always choose Zees. However our visit this time was disappointing. The food choice was very limited, the restaurant was cold and unwelcoming.
The soup and sandwich was good but the lamb burger was not that tasty.
The service was fine not as good as usual but acceptable.
The restaurant is very stark and felt dreary which doesn't reflect the rest of the venue.
Was here for my birthday, been to Zees before and it was a pleasure to have my special dinner there. As we live in Niagara-on-the-Lake we could have chosen any number of fine restaurants in town but Zees was our choice.
Well done ! Great food and service, just need to turn the lights up a bit, too dim/dark for my liking.
