This is a nice place and the service was great. Our server Kim was excellent and really made the evening nice. We really enjoyed the Crispy Pork Belly which was braised in cider and served with an incredible carrot purée. Dinner was good but came...with a little disappointment. The Surf N Turf was great with the exception of the lobster which was a mashed clump of mush served on top of a delicious tenderloin. The Prosciutto Wrapped Pork was good but the Smoked Bacon Bean Cassoulet looked great except the beans were crunchy and not cooked enough unfortunately. Hopefully the kitchen staff can be more careful and perform as well as our server for a more overall perfect experience.More

We had booked a reservation at Treadwells for their special Thanksgiving dinner tonight (we requested this particular dinner) and were told when we arrived that they had run out of turkey due to the heavy amount of takeout orders. Very unorganized. However, we ended up...at Zees and were very pleased with the excellent service we received. Dinner was delicious, from the warm soft bread, butternut squash soup, the turkey meal and yummy creme brulee for dessert. My only complaint was not enough gravy, it was so flavourful. I should have asked for more on the side, my fault. The evening ended well after all.More

We had dinner here with another couple while on a weekend getaway to NOTL. We’d eaten here before and recommended it to our friends. Food was good, we all had steak and it was cooked perfectly and tender. There was a reduction sauce that was...nice but it was also on our baby new potato’s. We would have rather just had a small amount drizzle on our steaks as it is a strong flavour and a little salty. Big shout out to our server Kim! So friendly and efficient. She really made us feel welcome and her service was top drawer!More

My hubby and I went here for a nice date night while staying in NOTL. We were seated on their covered patio. Our server was friendly and super helpful without being intrusive. The nice thing is that you can choose (mix and match) from their...patio or their inside dining menu. The food was very fresh, well-prepared and tasty. I had a beautiful fresh green salad and my main was Arctic char served with a gorgeous strawberry and cucumber chutney and vegetable couscous. Hubby enjoyed beef carpaccio and seafood bouillabaisse. When it came time for dessert, we opted for a special coffee instead. When the bartender saw that I was having a hard time deciding, he came to our table and offered to make me anything I wanted. In the end I went with his suggestion - coffee, vanilla vodka, kahlua, and whipped cream. Delicious! We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend Zees.More

Mere steps away from the main bustle of the shopping area it seemed a little less hectic. We dined on the beautiful covered patio with an abundance of hanging plants and whimsical garden decor. Service was prompt and attentive with all the Covid-19 precautions in...place. We both enjoyed their house specialty turkey sandwich. This is not your lunch box version but turkey sandwich kicked up many notches, really. Toasted rosemary focaccia bread with just the right char. An incredible cranberry infused aioli, fresh greens and then the flavourful, moist slices and chunks of turkey that was brined to add another layer of flavour. We shared the sides of garden salad and fries. The fries were crispy and hot. Amazing salad of mixed greens, dried cranberries, toasted pecans and feta cheese all tossed in a lavender honey vinaigrette. Yum! Prices in line with this area. Good size portions. Have to go back and try the calamari that is prepared in five Asian spice served with citrus Yusuf aioli, sounds good. We selected our meal from their all day dining menu. Worth checking out. Enjoy.More

Sorry Maria for the delay in getting back to you - not absolutely certain about this but in our experience we've found Zees to be very accomodating. I'd suggest emailing the restaurant directly.
