Chez Zee Ratings and Reviews

Friendly wait and host staff, quick and professional service, and (most importantly) delicious food from a diverse menu made for a great brunch. I strongly recommend making reservations for early weekend afternoons, as there was a pretty lengthy wait by the time we walked out. I only make trips down to Austin every once in a while and will definitely be returning to Chez Zee on my next trip.

I asked for a more private table possibly in a corner, and I got exactly that!! I felt famous for being taken care of so well. Food was delicious. Love that the rooms are separated by glass to block out extra noise.

Always festive - pleasant jazz trio and tasty food for Valentine's Day. Attentive waiter without being pushy. Main dining room preferred over the gallery which is really an extra event space. Save room for dessert!

Chez Zee was noisy but that's not uncommon. The steaks were prepared and seasoned well but tough. Not expected for the price. The waitress was a bit harried and apparently no one ever taught her how to serve a bottle of wine. No tasting or cork offering, just overfilled the glasses straightaway.

This place just feels great. I love the decor. It's cozy and everyone is friendly. If I ever owned my own restaurant, this is what I would go for. There's a magician there sometimes, which adds to the character. (He's also really good.)

Chez Zee has excellent dinner choices and fabulous desserts. This is a great place for a birthday, anniversary, or just a date night out for dinner. We had the New Orleans Pecan Chicken and Pork Tenderloin with Black Cherry sauce this time and both were wonderful! No matter what we order, the food is always presented beautifully and tastes great. If you've never been to Chez Zee for Valentine's Day, you must go! But advanced reservations are a MUST, as it is a very popular place to go.

A very Austin atmosphere. The menu was outstanding, and everyone in our party loved their selections. It was a little noisy, but it did have a good family vibe. We had grandparents, parents, teens and toddlers and everyone seemed to enjoy the celebration

We come here often, so obviously we like the place a lot. Food is always good and there are many options on the menu. We were in for an early dinner and were fortunate to sit in a quiet corner, which was delightful as the place can get noisy when busy (which is often), especially if you're seated in a big room. Service was a tad slow this time, possibly as we were a bit out of the way. Overall, a most enjoyable place to dine.

From making our reservation to finally dessert, we had a wonderful time! We are 5 women friends that were celebrating a belated Christmas and a birthday. My friends were concerned we'd be disturbing others in the restaurant and I voiced this to the reservationist. She reserved the perfect table and area for us. My friend's birthday was perfect with the thoughtful touches on the table. ..a happy birthday banner with her name on it. ..very nice! The food was delicious! I ordered baked salmon, spinach and mushrooms and ate everything, it was so good! The baked bread and olive oil dipper-yum and the dessert lemon rosemary cake outstanding! The service was perfect. ..our waiter was there when we needed him but not too often. They were very attentive when I had ordered blue cheese dressing for my salad and it was good but didn't taste like blue cheese. They replaced it with a less lemony version of their homemade blue cheese dressing. The place itself is comfortable, beautiful with the special lighting and not too bright. All in all we enjoyed ourselves immensely as all the staff of Chez Zee seemed to care and certainly put their action into it!

We could have gone anywhere si I searched online menus for good brunch fare and chose Chez Zee, a perfect choice-easy location, great food, etc. We asked to be seated in a quiet section, the staff really worked to find such a table. Conversation was going nonstop before we realized when been there almost 4 hours. The staff didn't rush us and continued to fill our water glasses and freshen our coffee. Perfect in every way!
