On our last night in Niagara we had a late dinner at Zee's Grill in the Shaw Club Hotel. It was a beautiful evening so we choose a great table on the veranda which made for a terrific dining atmosphere.

The food was outstanding, after an amuse bouche I had the gazpacho which was perfect on a warm summer evening, and my wife had a watermelon & strawberry salad which she said was amazing. For an entree my seared tuna was some of the best I've ever had, served with an asian flair. My wife equally enjoyed her west coast halibut. For dessert we shared the dark chocolate and hazelnut candybar which was incredible. The food at Zee's was likely the best we had on our trip to Niagara. Service was good as well, though perhaps a little bit rushed, and the pricing was very reasonable.

Zee's is definately on the top of our list for another visit in the future!

Group of 4 women, early May, neither pre nor post theater so no excuse for terrible service. Reservations made well ahead of time. Waited 10 minutes to be seated. Another 20 minutes for first drink order. Another 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. By this time we're getting pretty cranky but did not complain. Charcuterie was outstanding. Poutine as well. Don't even remember what else we had because we were so annoyed with the inexcusable wait. On the plus side - best washrooms in NOTL.

Pretty presentations and delicious food make this a nice place to have lunch. You can sit on the porch and people watch. The service is very friendly and accommodating.

Loved sitting on the porch with the colorful gardens. The yogurt starter with honey and fruit was the perfect start for the day. the serving staff was warm and friendly.

Zees Grill offers gourmet food, beautifully presented, and impeccable service. We enjoyed both a lunch and a dinner at Zees, and it was by far one of the best restaurants we've been to, anywhere. The local wines may not be as subtle or robust as those from Napa or Europe, but they are very good. Pricey for the quality, but worth the experiment to try them.
