Chez Zee Ratings and Reviews
We went on a holiday Monday night so it seemed a bit empty. Our food was fine. I had the garlic shrimp pasta, which was delicious and my wife had the Jalapeño Stuffed Chicken, which was very good. Our service was fine but not very personal. All in all, it was a good dinner but the atmosphere didn't do a lot for us. They did have a piano player there, which was great, but it still seemed a bit quiet and empty. Perhaps it would be better on a weekend night.
My husband & I visited Chez Zee for my birthday. We told them of the occasion ahead of time and they decorated our table and gave us a free dessert. Brunch was phenomenal . The food, service and atmosphere were on point. This was our first visit and we hadn't even gotten through our meal before we started to plan our next. Will absolutely come back.
The food was delicious usual! We always love coming here. You know that you can always expect a delicious meal, what ever you order. and the staff is very nice and polite. Atmosphere comfortable and relaxing and is place that children are welcome. Will eat here again. Like next week!! Lol!
I have a regular lunch date at Chez Zee with friends. I love that I can make a reservation and be seated without waiting. Service is always good as is the food. On Saturdays, you can always expect it to be crowded with a high noise level that can interfere with conversations.
We mentioned the rice didn't taste quite right. The Waitress said thank you for letting her know and didn't try and bring us more rice or a different vegetable?
It was probably an off night. I love this eatery and will still visit until I see this becomes a regular occurrence.
We celebrated my husband's birthday at Chez Zee. The atmosphere is fun and feels like a party no matter when you go. Our table was decorated with ribbons and a plaque reading "Happy Birthday from Chez Zee!" It made us feel special and very welcome. The entrees were delicious, but the real star is dessert! The dessert menu is impressive and all are made onsite. We have gone in the past just for dessert. Also the staff are so warm and helpful. Service is always excellent!
Chez Zee used to be a favorite spot. Sadly, service was abysmal this time. It took half an hour to get our order taken, the server never checked to see if all was ok, and we were stuck in the Sahara as far as water refills were concerned. It was also the Sahara "dessert" 'cause we were never able to get an order in at the end! It took three hours to get in and out -- and it felt like our waitstaff needed to be reported to the missing persons bureau! I literally had to chase her across the restaurant to get the check.
We haven't been to Chez Zee in a while so we thought we'd go for a casual birthday dinner. We were so disappointed. Chicken was rubbery, wait staff was less than well trained and we felt rushed through our entire dinner even though the restaurant was mostly empty on a holiday weekend. We won't be back.
My wife and I went for brunch on Saturday. I ordered the Peppa Bloody Mary which was ok but was way overpriced for the size. Wife ordered a Champagne Mimosa that was just ok. I ordered the steak and egg breakfast and the steak was tough and heavily seasoned with rosemary. I like rosemary in light doses but it has no place on a breakfast steak. The menu made no mention of this and if it had I would have ordered something else. The potatoes were overcooked but cold and soggy at the same time. The sliced tomatoes were under ripe and tasteless. My wife ordered the goat cheese, tomato and avocado omelette and the goat cheese was for some reason very salty. This ingredient combination sounded good but it seemed to be missing something. Ordered a side of bacon that was cooked crispy as ordered but was overly salty.
The service was very good.
Chez Zee is my top choice of restaurants in Austin. There's a large variety of outstanding food, the atmosphere is fun and very pleasant, and the staff is the best I've seen in any local restaurant. Kudos to the staff for all they do to make people like me want to keep going back there!
