3 out of the party of 4 had the fish and chips and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel.
The service was top notch! Certainly a place to be recommended.

Food is excellent. It is one of a few places in the city that one can get a beautifully steamed whole lobster - which is what we came for and we were not disappointed. Our wine was also lovely and the place has a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Service was good. The only thing I notice was that no one took any extra care with my elderly mother. No one pulled the chair out for her, which usually does happen in other places. So I was a bit surprised by that.

Our service was not very friendly and we were crammed next to another table. The food was great but the portions were so small. Even the glass is wine seemed shorted. The food was wonderful but it would be hard to justify a return visit.

That is the only place to have fish and chips. The service was very good too. The place is just a bit dark and needs some renovation.

The food and atmosphere are excellent. Unfortunately the server was not friendly or very interested in us. We had to ask for water refills, another drink etc. We have been to this restaurant many times and rarely is the service much different. The food however, is delicious!

If you appreciate carefully prepared food and reasonable portions in a slightly quieter atmosphere, this is the place for you. It was our first visit this evening and it won’t be our last!

We hadn't been to Zee Grill in a number of years but it's always been a favourite of ours. We decided on the restaurant for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was great, as we expected it would be. From the oysters on through the main courses it was excellent - calamari, scallops, and tuna all top notch. Staff were very accommodating (Chris took care of us), including keeping flowers in the walk-in fridge for a later surprise. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Another night of perfection. One of the city's best oyster shuckers on board. Food portions, presentation and taste outstanding. Kitchen, wait staff on top of their game. A wine list that is varied and not breaking the bank to enjoy. Well done!

Food and drinks were very expensive. Wait staff told us to order everything at once because they were very busy but there were only 3 tables occupied when we were ordering. Prices of food and drinks were astronomical. One piece of oyster for $4 and one of the oysters served to us did not have the oyster’s flesh only the shell. Will not come back to this place.

Took a date to here for oysters on Wednesday night. My date liked it so much that we reserved for dinner the next night. Food is great, service friendly and the ambience is warm and casual. I especially love the special calamari noodles with shrimp and lobster. Very unique and a winner all around.

We went for a birthday dinner. While the food was great, the service was abysmal. The staff needs to be given a dress code (our waiter wore a baggy old t-shirt - didn't even introduce himself as our waiter, the bartender had a backwards baseball hat.) We ordered cocktails, which were very good, however, the food was brought five minutes later. The waiter quickly explained he was going to open my salad, but never even gave me a chance to say I was ready. The waitress who brought our food ignored my request for salt and pepper, and then when I had to call her back loudly, she just brought over a pepper mill and started to put it on. The whole dining experience was over in about an hour. As well, I had indicated it was a birthday when I booked online, however, there was no mention of this at all. Although we liked the food, we wouldn't return.
