    Restaurant smoky due to poor ventilation. Need crostini with mussels.

    Zoes Steak & SeafoodResponded on November 22, 2022We apologize for the smoke...it was pretty bad that evening. We have taken steps to get that corrected. I have also spoken with Chef Paul about the mussels and we are now including some type of crostini or grilled baguette. Thank you for the feedback that evening, Abbott! We hope that you join us again!

    Wonderful dining experience. We were seated at the chef’s table and enjoyed delightful bites prepared by Chef Paul. He came to our table and chatted with us for a bit. Our server Chantel was the best. Pleasant, attentive and super sweet. The entire staff was friendly and polite. Food was absolutely amazing. I ordered the New York strip steak and my husband ordered the tile fish. And let’s talk about dessert…. the carrot cake was just beautiful!!!! We will definitely go back!!!

    We had a great dinner at Zoe's! The food was delicious and we were pleasantly surprised when we mentioned we didn't drink with the different alcohol free options that the waitress provided to us instead. The non-alcoholic beer and non-alcoholic mojito were great paired with our duck and fish. We will definitely be back!

    Zoes Steak & SeafoodResponded on October 29, 2022We are happy you dined with us and we could accommodate! Not everyone drinks alcohol and those guests still deserve amazing service and delicious options. We look forward to seeing you again!

They even wrote a personalized card wishing us a happy anniversary and many of the waitstaff came over to our table to personally wish us a happy anniversary. If you haven’t been here you are missing out!

    Pricey but good. Wagyu Wednesday was nice with half off the wagyu tenderloin that was melt in your mouth and did not disappoint. My husband got the halibut which was good but pricey. My son said the soup was the best, some apple cauliflower bisque topped with seafood and crostini. The baked Alaska was a yummy way to finish the meal. Overall a good experience with great service. Just costly.

    I enjoyed Zoe’s, but it was definitely not catering to my age group (late 30’s) and reminded me more of my parents type of traditional steak & seafood restaurant. The wine list is superb and the appetizers tried to be different, but they fell short of great. Temperatures were off (not hot) and flavor profiles didn’t quite hit the mark.

    Went to Zoes for the first time on our anniversary at the recommendation of a friend, overall the experience was "fine." There was not much to complain about or pinpoint, it was an "okay dinner." I will preface by saying that we enjoy going out to eat and do not mind spending money on a fine dining experience, we were expecting to spend a few hundred dollars on dinner and cocktails (which we did.) We had the lobster sausage for an app, we were told it was one of their most popular. It was tasty but nothing to write home about. My husband got surf and turf ribeye, the steak was cooked nicely but was very BLAND. I do not think they even seasoned with S & P. Our friends had the octopus for an app and that was better than the sausage, imo. Our friends got filet mignon oscar style, same thing- bland. We also got the burger which was better than all the entrees. Our cocktails/wine stayed empty for long periods of time... There was an opportunity for the server to upsell us on more drinks but he was not very attentive. The serve was just ok- they auto grat every table, our server would have gotten more from us if the service was better. The runners and bussers were very nice! I did enjoy a bottle of unique wine from their scratch and dent list (I think that is what it was called.) Overall, this restaurant was underwhelming and expensive. The overall atmosphere was dark and dated and not really special feeling. There was a hand written card on the table thanking us for celebrating our anniversary with them, but nothing said from the sever or offer of a celebratory dessert. If you are looking for a steak house with a similar vibe Byrd and Baldwin is about the same price and MUCH better. Hope this helps someone...

    Several of us got the Wagyu beef burger, and it was chard and tasted burnt. I’ve never known Wagyu to be cooked that hard. The hamburger buns were also burnt as well. The waiter was very nice and knowledgeable though.

    Overall Zoe’s turned out just ok after a few disappointing moments. The octopus appetizer was ok, but the portion was so small & the potato puffs accompanying were ice cold. I told a server about this when she came by & said she would inform the chef - I’d already ate the 5 or so pieces of octopus before she stopped by to check with us. Entrees were 7 oz filet which was undercooked (med rare not medium) & cold in the middle so the server sent it back to reheat & it was fine. The meal portion size was quite small. The seafood bouillabaisse was good. Servers were very attentive & nice and gave us a delicious dessert to share on the house due to our meal issues. But the worst moment was when the check was issued with a 20% tip for a table of two. The total bill seemed incorrect so in reviewing the math the tax was included in the calculation of the tip. This not right & should be based on the meal cost only. I spoke to the server about this & told her this not unacceptable so she had to speak to a manager who then removed the automatic tip so we could add our own (we gave 20% cash on the meal cost). Otherwise this meal would have cost us another $5 or $6 more due to tipping on the tax. Diners need to be aware of this attempted practice if you dine here (or other places that do this) as it is plainly WRONG. I don’t know if Zoe’s kitchen had an off night or what but we were less than impressed, except for the server staff who were all great. The plate portions were small given what we paid for. All in all we cannot see giving Zoe’s a very high rating & would be reluctant to go back in the future.
