“delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Decided to stop in for a quick lunch without reservations. It was very busy with the lunchtime pre-theatre crowd, but we were seated by Sarah, the hostess, on the patio with only a very short wait. The only downside was it was very sunny & warm and our table did not have an umbrella. Our waiter, Chris, arrived promptly and asked if we had 2pm theatre tickets. When told no, he took our order & told us we might have a short wait for our food. Both our drinks arrived quickly although I had requested to have mine served with our meal. It was a pleasant wait, "people watching" and after only 20min. our food arrived. The reuben sandwich had plentiful meat,cheese & sauerkraut and a side salad, and the naan vegetable pizza was delicious with a bountiful array of grilled eggplant,mushroom,onion,& peppers, goat cheese and topped with pesto & fresh arugula. A knife & fork was a must. We would definately return.

“Just Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We were staying at the Shaw Club restaurant in Niagara On The lake and Zee's grill is attached to the hotel. Our stay included breakfast and lunch at Zee's.Definatley one of the best restaurants in town. For breakfast we had the Eggs Benidict and my wife had the Salmon Benidict. Both were excellent.
Lunch time we had the grilled chicken and my wife had the Naim bread salad. Excellent again. Sercive was spot on and the atmosphere is very relaxing. We ate on the porch and inside as well.Beautiful gardens and a nice view of the street for watching the activity in town. We will return for sure

“Love everything about this restaurant......no buts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Every time we go the NOTL we go to eat at Zees Grill. The food is always fresh and delicious. We started out with the cheese appetizer which was wonderful, especially the local honey with bee pollen sprinkle!! Can't wait to go back!! Great waitress too!!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This restaurant is out of the downtown core, just in front of the Shaw...but worth the short walk. The ambiance, service and menu are all wonderful. We shared a vegetable flatbread that was to die for. Highly recommend...and the boutique hotel it is attached to is also beautiful

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We ordered lobster salads and a scallop entree to share. The presentation and quality of the food was very good. The waiter was very professional, friendly, and made sure we were given information on our dinner choices. We had a reservation at 6pm and the service was prompt as we had theater tickets for and 8 pm play. The seating on the terrace was very pleasant. My only suggestion is that a few more choices on the menu would have been great.
