It was a night for celebrating a birthday. Zoe's was kind enough to allow me to bring flowers early to be placed on the table. When we arrived, there was a birthday card from Zoe's. The service was excellent. The meal was cooked to perfection. Altogether a wonderful evening.

Zoes is a great date night restaurant. The service was fabulous, all employees were extremely friendly and wanted to make sure we were taken care of. The Waiter was very knowledgeable and gave us recommendations on what to eat and they did not disappoint. The food was absolutely fantastic it arrived in a timely manner and was prepared exactly how we ordered it. Overall my girlfriend and I loved Zoes and will be dining here in the near future.

My wife and I love Zoes. We have enjoyed many special occasions there by ourselves and with family and friends. Also have entertained many of my business associate over the years! Always amazed at Marc’s vast knowledge of wines! Congrats on your 10 year anniversary and looking forward to enjoying fine dining over the next 10 year and celebrating many more special occasions!

Used to get great steaks here last year....not sure if it was because of restaurant week or what but, the steaks were very fatty and kind of tough. Salads were tiny and too chic for a chop house....also the Cesar salad was very anchovies tasting and smelling and very salty. They had no wild caught seafood and the farm raised salmon dinner was tiny. Not a great value as I remember it being in year's past.

My husband and I went to Zoes on our first date night in a long time. It did not disappoint! We splurged for my husband to have the wagu tenderloin and I had the filet. Both were amazing!! The food was well worth the cost and the service was outstanding!

We have been to Zoe’s for our anniversary and a birthday. We absolutely love it! The food is amazing as always. The service is beyond compare. From the time we pulled up and the valet led us in, to the servers who catered to our every want and need, to our boxed leftovers being carried to the car and our car right at the door before we walked out. Truly top notch. When you dine here, you are not just a table to push out, you are a valued guest in their home. We prefer this so much more than Ruth Chris steak house now!

Very good food. Good selection. Accommodated us with a more private table after refusing their table selection for us. Vegetables a little too al dente for my taste (it was taken off my check which was what I didn’t want to happen). My daughter and I would return to eat here.

Atmosphere is tired, and in desperate need of updating. The steaks were very good. The sides, blah. The wine list is remarkable! With MAJOR markup. Our server was outstanding. The best we've had in the area. Will we revisit. Highly doubtful.

We went for New Year's Eve and were NOT aware that the prix fixe menu was the only menu available. And they did not allow sharing. So, we were surprised. The food was great; they had beautiful selections; but we were not looking for that type experience nor were we looking to spend $200 + per person for dinner. The food here is great; I would suggest when you reserve you do it over the phone and ask questions.

I liked that the valet knew that we were arriving for our reservation (even though we were a bit early) and I especially appreciated that he knew we were leaving and had our car at the front door warned up for us. The food was delicious! The decor and ambiance reminded me of old style smoking/dining clubs, which I like.

Zoes Steak and Seafood provided a 5-star 3-course meal, paired with exquisite wine selections for each course. The in-house sommelier spoke about why the particular wine was chosen for each course while also asking what our preferences were in wine selections. The food came out perfectly prepared and matched the wine selection to a tee with each dish. Surprisingly, the food came out quick. There was enough time for my wife and me to chat but also no time to waste as the food was served to us promptly. We loved it! The only downside to this place is the price, so come ready to spend hundreds. But, for us, this was well worth every penny. It will definitely be a very special occasion spot for us from now on.

My husband made an early reservation at Zoe’s for my birthday. It was spectacular! The staff were friendly and our table was ready when we arrived. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful with picking out a great bottle of wine within our price range. Each of our courses were delicious and cooked perfectly. This is a fine dining restaurant for those who appreciate really good food and wine.
