One of the dinning stars of Seattle is Restaurant Zoe. The menu offers a wide variety of starters/sides from which to select the openers. Could not have been happier with the marinated olives, charred cherry tomatoes with the shishto peppers, and roasted cauliflowers. Well, now to the mains. Yes, when in season do opt for the King Neah Bay King... More

This was a great restaurant! Attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere and five star meal. We ordered the five course tasting and were delighted with each new offering. Both my 21 yr daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

went with friends for dinner. great atmosphere, but a little hard to hear in the section we ate. Perhaps a few soft furnishings would absorb the noise. the food was very good and a lot of nice options. The same could be said for the cocktails, a couple of which are creations of the bar staff there.

We ate here last night and enjoyed the food and service. I didn't see any main dishes that I liked the look of - most included meat or seemed quite rich in flavor and I am mostly vegetarian. So I had the baby mixed greens salad and a side of olives. Those olives were delicious. And, definitely more than enough... More

We arrived at Restaurant Zoe to receive a gift for a wine pairing with 5 course dinner. This was the first time we had ever been to RZ. Immediately upon arrival we were welcomed and the evening began. Worried a little about it being Father's Day we weren't sure if going out to eat was such a good idea- however... More

Our food was good and the service was exemplary, but it was difficult to hear our own table conversation because the hard surfaces in the restaurant just added to the noise from other tables. There were very few vegetarian options available and most of the fish entrees were shellfish. I thought the prices were very high for what was offered... More

We were there for the special dining Seattle, three dishes for $ 28.00. We started with the gnudi and it was delicious! Really an incredible stand out dish! Followed by the chicken and others at the table had the fish, both were good. Finished our dinner with the chocolate cake. I would return for the gnudi alone!

Our party of 4 dined at Zoe's for the first time and we all loved it. The celery root soup rocks and the salad was outstanding. Our black cod with Cantrell mushrooms and fingerling potatoes not only looked lovely, but also tasted delicious. Their panna cotta with berries was outdone only by their chocolate torte (everyone's favorite). Loved the extensive... More

We had dinner at a birthday at Zoes and we enjoyed the good atmosphere as well as the service and the food so much. the restaurant has a good sorted wine and a tasty dessert to a resonable price.
