Refused to add a protein in the Caesar salad, disappointing

We had a very enjoyable dinner with our friends. The food and service were superb, our server was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. She made our evening special.
We’ll definitely return next time we’re in NOTL.

This is what eating at a good restaurant should be. The food, the service, and the prices were all very good. The relatively quiet ambiance due to sufficient spacing between tables and the volume level of the background music plus the patio seating made for an overall outstanding experience and value.

A lovely evening, a little less so after a table of 4 sat down nowhere near us but were loud enough to share their lives with us-with fewer tables, sound seems to travel more. The food was terrific, the menu had lots of options and our waitress was superb.

We were so excited to get back to NOTL and the Shaw Festival. Zee’s is always our favorite when we have a show in the Festival Theatre. The meal is well-paced so you have plenty of time, but don’t feel rushed. The food is always outstanding. We both chose the Caesar salad as a starter. It was perfectly dressed and the crispy ham on the top was a perfect salty crunchy bite. My husband had the pork chop and I had the char. We were both very pleased with our choice. We’ll definitely return on our next visit.

This was one of our many visits over the years and the second one this summer. Once more we were pleased with our experience. The reception was smooth and efficient. Our server Anna was very pleasant and the service was excellent. The food was very good and plentiful. The veranda is very comfortable and a pleasant surrounding. We will certainly revisit in the future.

Super friendly and welcoming staff. Food was very fresh, delicious, and served promptly. Perfect spot for a date night, or just to enjoy some good food and watch the horse-drawn carriages in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We sat on the veranda/enclosed outdoor area. It was perfect for the outside climate (late summer evening). The staff and food was excellent. The cheese plate had a great selection of local cheeses. The only complaint about the food was that my husband found his steak undercooked for his preference.

Absolutely amazing service, atmosphere and food. Oh the food. Delicious.
Have not had such an enjoyable dining experience in soooooo long. In fact, we enjoyed our time there so much that before we left we booked a room in the hotel for two nights at the end of October.
See you then!

A wonderful dinner, with excellent food and service. The tables indoors are well spaced out for social distancing, raising no concerns about eating indoors. Both the beef carpaccio and smoked salmon were delicate and delicious. The duck and the chicken were well prepared and flavourful. As expected from Zee's, a lovely meal.

We selected outdoor seating when arrived hostess said nope not available. We said we requested out door seating she told us everyone does but you are going to be seated inside. No compassion or any type of explanation we saw a open table and were told no some one else will be seated there. We said we would wait and that that was not an option. All and all just a cold reception.

Our waiter must have been trained in a diner and not a white table cloth restaurant.

The wine arrived (after the soup- which had been spilled) and he handled the glasses by the bowl and not the stems

We received the bill/ paid , then the coffee and later on he came by to ask if we had paid ( really !!)

Only saving grace is the food was excellent

There is a real disconnect between the food quality and the server

With their prices, one would expect better experience

Food was pretty good, although it was VERY expensive. The service was great, but VERY slow. Also, we sat outside and there was consistent noise that took away from the experience.

We went for lunch. The food looked very nice but several items lacked seasoning. We had the caprese salad which desperately needed salt and pepper. My Cajun shrimp tacos were very bland . The tomato soup and the apple Brie grilled cheese were ok. The French fries were delicious and nicely salted. We had high hopes for the restaurant. Service and location was great but the food was sadly not.

Nice location across from the Shaw Festival. I had the confit duck which I found a bit dried out. My companion had a dead on medium tenderloin...said it was perfect. Sides were nice but someone must have dropped a salt shaker in the veggies.
Desert.. delicious. Great service.

We had the beef tenderloin and the pork chop with potato hash - Caesar salad and smoked salmon - we have had this a few times before in the summer and really liked it - this time - so bad - there was only half the portions for appetizers - beef tenderloin rubbery - my potato hash - greasy and had one small potato piece - the rest was onions and some greasy ham pieces - the bread that came to table was burnt on top and could not be eaten - we returned it and the next bread was better - carrots not cooked and the green beans over cooked - As i mentioned - this was like a totally different experience than before - we were there Sept. 16, 2021 at the 5 pm .
