We stayed at the Shaw - where the restaurant was located. Usually do not eat where we stay - but we are very glad we did. The lobster poutine with fries was WONDERFUL. Had to go back a second night to order it again.. MY husbands beef tenderloin was excellent too.
Everything freshly prepared - lots of attention to presentation. Nice indoor and outdoor patios.

Inventive menu in a delightful setting. My wife and I have had diner at Zee's a few times, and lunch on our most recent trip. Everything was consistently outstanding. They take great pride in using locally grown and raised food products, and of course, they feature local wines.
Conveniently located accross the street from the Festival Theater in Niagara on the Lake.
Enjoy!

We sat on the verandah on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon and enjoyed some bubbly, great food and a view of their lovely flower garden in full bloom. The server needs to work on being friendly but the food was worth our patience. We highly recommend the prawns and the crab cake. The house salad was fabulous. They also have a great wine selection. Next time we are visiting we will be going here for dinner.

Have a very nice dinner there before theater. Both of our salads were fresh and flavourful. Our entrees were well prepared and delicious. The menu featured local produce and meats. Our first visit to Zee`s and we will be back.

We read the reviews but decide to try it anyways. Maybe if it wasn't a special occasion for us, we wouldn't have been so disappointed. We are used to fine dining and good food, we consider this restaurant pricing as a mid price establishment.
We shared the Woolrich Goat's Cheese Parcel (Woolrich Goat's Cheese, Heirloom Tomato, Basil Parcel Local Green with Ver Jus Dressing) - about $10 it is more like a bagged baby green salad mix with a decent dressing. The Goat Cheese Parcel is about 2 inches square wrapped in phyllo pastry with a basil leaf. There were no heirloom tomatoes. This was tasty and and probably not intended to share but we were saving our appetites for our mains and desserts. The parcel was on the smaller side even if it was for one. The greens were nothing special. NOW, on to our mains... We each ordered the Roasted Chicken Supreme (Thyme and Woodland Mushroom Risotto, Crisp Prosciutto) because we were looking forward to a well prepared risotto. The chicken was done well -- flavourful without there being any strong seasonings. However, the risotto was indelibly salty. I understand that both shaved parmesan and prosciutto are salty ingredients, but the salt in this dish went over what you would expect with a few salty ingredients -- the ACTUAL RISOTTO was just too salty. We notified our waitress who apologized and offered a salad but we really wanted the risotto -- so we asked if they could make us more. After about 15 minutes 2 large bowls were presented to us -- but get this, there was only about 2 tablespoons of rice in each bowl. We each got one mushroom - no prosciutto, no parmesan. What a slap in the face, or a spit in the plate (how ever you want to look at it). Granted, IT WAS LESS salty then the first attempt, but WHY BOTHER? Most places get one chance to make a good impression - Zee's Grill got 2 chances and FAILED both times. I actually pulled out my mushrooms and prosciutto from the first dish and added it the 2nd bowl --why not, I paid for it!! SHAME on Zee's. We paid the bill and tipped our obliging server - but skipped desserts. We spent the rest of the evening drinking LOTS of water!
