“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

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 every course as well as wine pairing were excellent. Our server Megan added to the experience. She is probably one of the best servers we have had in a long time. The fill in manager was also pleasant and hard working- We will definitely be back again.

“Expensive with loud dining”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

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 and for even special nights out, I would opt for a different restaurant. The portions were tiny, and although I was replete, it took two shared appetizers amongst the four of us to get there. The sparkling water came in a glass vessel, with no name, so it was probably out of a SodaStream machine rather than a Pellegrino. Most of the wines vintners were minor players, but the prices were high, too. They're currently working on an outdoor area, if dining outdoors is your thing.

“Enjoyed our Dinner”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

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!

“Seattle Restaurant Week Find”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

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 wine list, the pleasant atmosphere; and our server could work in the finest restaurant in Paris. He was prompt, unobtrusive but attentive, efficient--perfect. Our only criticism--way too much salt in the mashed potatoes that accompanied the chicken breast and sausage-stuffed cabbage. But that sausage stuffing was marvelous. With a favorite French restaurant gone, we plan to frequent Zoe's.
