Highly recommended! Been there for both breakfast and dinner. Both were superb. Pork tenderloin was my favorite...........Mmmmmm! Lights and music during the evening make for a terrific combination.

Came here for a Sunday morning brunch. I had the garden omelet with fruit cup and avocado. Friends had eggs Benedict, goat cheese omelet, and French toast. Complementary croissants were warm, fluffy and delicious. They served them with thus fantastic butter mixed with strawberries. Would definitely return!

First time here with a visitor from the UK. Although we had made a reservation they were a little behind so we had to wait, but nothing too bad - we only had to wait an extra 10 minutes. Placed our order without much of a problem and it was really good. We had migas (with sausage added), crab cake... More

Had a family brunch here and it was amazing. The food is wonderful and the portions are definitely shareable! We had the creme brûlée french toast as an appetizer and the the eggs Benedict for our main entree. The complimentary croissants and strawberry butter is an appetizer in itself. The decor is exciting and the servers were friendly and prompt.... More

Always stop here in Austin. Excellent food and nice décor. Hey, It's always Christmas here at Chez Zee. Food never disappoints. Always fresh and tasty, but a little pricey sometimes. Have been here many times.

Had dinner here again recently and continue to be impressed. I started with the Aztec Corn and Shrimp bisque, followed by the fish special. My wife had the Gorgonzola Jalapeno Pasta. Everything was great! And don't forget about the fresh bread! Looking forward to going back!

I had brunch at Chez Zee and I was VERY impressed! This is the first brunch I've had in a long time that was truly a great dining experience in both the food, atmosphere and service. It is worth checking out! Their hollandaise is amazing!

Stopped in for an early dinner. We were seated promptly and our waiter Jeremy was outstanding. This was our first visit and he had great recommendations and they were not the most expensive items on the menu which told us he was not pushing price but quality. We had the crab quesadilla as an appetizer and it was outstanding. You... More

This place always get lots of attention in the local media for their Sunday brunch. My husband and I decided to go and give them a try. We have seen lots of positive write ups of their creme brûlée French toast. We ordered the breakfast platter that included the French toast along with 2 eggs, potatoes, and your choice of... More
