We enjoyed our evening however, very expensive for what you get. We ordered the pork tenderloin & was disappointed. At $35 a plate a few pieces of pork with beans is extremely pricey. It's not the first time we have tried Zee's but it'll be awhile before we go back. There are other fine dining restaurants where we feel you get better value for your money.

We’ve temporarily relocated to the area and this is our third visit to
Zee’s Grill. The food has been consistently outstanding, the service top notch, and the ambience can’t be beat. Their signature turkey sandwich is just so good!!

We’ve loved it so much we’ve made additional reservations to introduce other friends to this true gem.

Thanks to everyone at Zee’s!

Had lunch on the patio with my husband. It was a lovely wrap around porch with a nice atmosphere. White sangria was refreshing. Food was all great, but the shrimp tacos were to die for. Best I’ve had !

Will definitely be back.

Zees has 2 patios available now for dining until the interior can open.
One is outside with umbrella-covered tables. The other is on a open-air verandah and is much more comfortable.
The food and service are very good but the menu is very limited right now and many of our past favourites are no longer offered.

Overall, it wasn't bad. Our server Kim was excellent. Found our main courses to be much too salty and one of the apps (tuna dish) was lacking in flavour and the tuna was more seared than expected.

We had a lovely dinner at Zee’s. Our waiter Trevor was great. I thought the wine was a bit expensive at $48 for bottle that sells for 15.95 in the LCBO.
We would definitely go again.

We come her often. Food never disappoints. If they have the truffle fries, and the pork belly on the menu, those are awesome (but it’s more of a summer thing). Truffle gnocchi was a decent substitute this time.
The only issue at our recent visit was one of the people in our party tried to pour himself a cup of coffee from the lobby while waiting for the rest of us to arrive for dinner (it’s a hotel restaurant, so it’s all attached) and the front desk clerk admonished him saying “that’s only for hotel guests”. Never mind that we had a reservation for 14 at the restaurant...and we were literally, the only people there. I mean really? Seemed a bit petty, especially considering there wasn’t exactly a crowd. AT ALL.
A bonus- they have electric vehicle chargers. Those, I can understand have hotel guest priority. Although we’ve also been here when gas vehicles have hogged up those spots, and the staff don’t seem too inclined to call those people out on it.

Despite this, dinner was excellent and waiter was awesome. Will be back.

The desserts sounded delicious on paper. However the crème brule was much smaller and much sweeter than anticipated. The Death by Chocolate was very scant with the fudge.

Second time at Zees and once again they did not disappoint. The meal was delicious and the service was genuine and friendly, the atmosphere was lovely, a quiet gem on Niagara on The Lake. I requested a seat by the fireplace and while it couldn't be guaranteed, I was told they would make a best effort, and they succeeded so I was appreciative of that nice touch and Trevor who attended our table was just tops! I'll def be back.

Wonderful food. Wide selection of meat as well as vegetarian options. The mushroom risotto and gnocchi were hot and extremely tasty. The ice cream had such lovely tastes. The use of greens was lovely. The "Death by Chocolate" was satisfying and did not make us feel overly full by the end of the meal. Overall, a wonderful night with delightful food. I would HIGHLY recommend it to friends and family. We frequent Niagara-on-the-Lake yearly and this is the 4th year we have visited this stellar restaurant. I look forward to visiting again next year!

I live nearby and Zees is one of the restaurants I go to for special occasions. The food is always fresh and delicious. Service excellent. The menu changes frequently so there is always something new to try. In Summer the wrap-around porch is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch, or dinner for that matter. My guest enjoyed it as well. I will return! Best to make reservations.
