first the plus factors😍: good chef, creative presentations of routine dishes, salmon, sole, chicken, scallops (albeit slightly raw, undercooked, in a nice reduction)...selections unimaginitive, but tasty. The atmosphere is really poor. The frat-house noise level is so high, you must essentially scream your order to the waitress...nice staff though, doing as well as possible. I can't understate the noise level... More

My husband and I know that we can rely on Zoe to provide a great meal and excellent service. Tonight was no exception. Even though we aren't "regulars" enough for anyone to really know us there, we were nevertheless personally greeted. When we asked about a favorite drink we'd had there months ago, but wasn't on the current drink list,... More

Tonight my girlfriend and I went to Zoe to celebrate. I ordered the rockfish (special for the night) and it was delicious. Our waitress was Susanna. She was awesome. I was dying of thirst and kept finishing my water the second she refilled it, so she left a glass water container at our table for us. She knew all of... More

For the last month the food has been inconsistent. The food can be very good at times and not so good at other times. What has consistent is the temperature in the restaurant itself. If you like eating in a restaurant where you have to step outside every ten or fifteen minutes in order to cool off then you will... More

Zoe's menu sounds amazing and delicious. The food is fine, it features a much more creative selection than most other Athens options. It is not worth the expense-the meals I have had have been so-so. Try salaam, purple chopstix or Casa nueva if you want quirky and local.

The butterscotch creme brulee will change your life. :) The food was great. We each ordered something different and then shared so we could experience it all. A little pricey, but so much better than another night of "fast food".

I love this place--just the white linen tablecloths alone would do it for me but I also love the old plank floors, the huge old bar and the view of the kitchen. The food is also excellent and inventive as are the wines and drinks. The wait staff is well informed, answers all of your questions and is very attentive--all... More

The Jasper Martini and the Moscow Mule cocktails are just perfection! We have always enjoyed their appetizers-always great. The food is mostly pretty good but we have had some disappointments here and there; however the Monkfish I had a few days back was delicious (and this is not one of my preferred fish but I am for exploring flavors in...

The location in Uptown Athens is nice - away from all the chains on E. State Street. The food here is very good to even excellent and reasonably priced. But everything about the inside is cheap, drab, and depressing which leads to the place having zero atmosphere. Absolutely no character at all, which is a shame because again, the food... More
