Absolutely Amazing 2/14/2012

Restaurant Zoe has moved and lucky me, right across the street! I just had the most amazing meal, awesome service and great dessert. Citysearch is slow on the update, but the new location is 14th and Union. Be sure to make a reservation - even during the soft opening the place was packed! I do believe I've found a new favorite. more

pretentious, high prices, average but odd food 2/26/2010

I am surprised at the number of high ratings this restaurant gets. Pros: good location, nice ambience Cons: portions are small for price, food is so so, service average more

Great service, cool atmosphere, good food 1/25/2010

Yummy cod meal and wild boar bolognese was surprisingly great to my non-foodie hubby. We really enjoyed the experience. Pros: Awesome service from host, to server to bread guy! Cons: mostly seafood...few meat dishes more

All-around disappointment during Dine Around Seattle 12/1/2008

Having heard great reviews of Zoe, I tried it out with some friends during the Dine Around Seattle 30 for $30 special. Dinner got off to a promising start with a nice glass of house wine, the large Garden Greens, the pleasant Celery-D?Anjou Pear Soup, and the rich, tasty Fresh Ricotta Gnudi. Pros: Good house wine Cons: Completely unsubtle flavors more

Wierd Service, High Prices, Small and Mediocre Servings 11/15/2008

The music isn't relaxing and the service is formal, but seems a bit awkwardly conducted; the decor is medocre - a sort of mix between a low-end downtown storefront restaurant and faux-luxury. That said, alot of nice, well-mannered people seem to enjoy the place, so I won't be too hard on it. Pros: Formal Staff Cons: Small Helpings, High Prices, Mediocre Atmosphere more

Still at the top of the list 11/9/2008

One of the best resturants in town. Food is excellent. Try the gnudi appetizer. The celery/pear soup is well executed. Squash risotto fantastic. The dining room is small and inviting. Service was top notch and unobstrusive. Go for the food, relax and enjoy your dining experience. Pros: Food, Service, Cocktails Cons: Parking in Beltown more

Absolutely a knockout! 9/19/2008

My wife and I heard about Zoe from a couple at another of our favorite restaurants (Divine up on Roosevelt). They spoke very highly of it, and they're weren't kidding - it's fantastic. We finally got around to eating there last night. Pros: Spectacular food, great service Cons: A little loud, but not unbearably so more

Charming service and food! 9/12/2008

Dining at Zoe is a lovely way to spend an evening. Though we had a to wait a few minutes for our table, the bar is not a bad place to have to sit for a while. The bartender was very knowledgeable about wines and pointed us towards a fantastic Washington state wine we wouldn't have selected on our own. The food was delicious (the chanterelle mushroom appetizer is really amazing) and the service was spot on. The space is really interesting- very elegant yet a bit edgy/industrial- impressive to be able to pull that off. All in all, a wonderful evening and we will certainly return. Pros: Lovely space, great service and food Cons: A little loud, crowded more

Great service and atmosphere, horrible, salty food 8/24/2008

I'd heard great things about this place so I was excited to try it for dinner. We shared the beet & wild mushroom salad and were disappointed from the start. This was extremely salty and the flavors did not taste good together. Couldn't even finish it, and we were splitting it, and the meal just went downhill from there. I ordered the fried chicken which again was WAY too salty, it just didn't have good flavor and was basically just a chicken breast fried in a pan that I could have made myself. My mom had the sea scallops and those were decent but the same saltiness overpowered her meal as well. The wine list was limited and they didn't even have a pinot grigio - what classy restaurant doesn't carry pinot grigio? We tried to cap off the meal on a good note with the $6 homemade peach sorbet - even this wasn't good. It was chunky and tasteless and we didn't even finish the small two scoops. Unfortunately this meal came to over $100 and the whole thing was a huge disappointment. more

Excellent service and amazing food 7/24/2008

I've been to Zoe three times and every time I am blown away by their exceptional service. From the waitstaff to the bartenders to the hosts, they are all friendly, knowledgeable (but never snooty), and attentive. And then there's the food...oh how I long for the delicious food from Zoe. I love the ricotta gnudi as an appetizer and every entree I've tried has been to die for. Each dish is inventive and the menu selection will please any taste. This is by far one of my favorite Seattle restaurants. Pros: everything more

Average on all levels 7/1/2008

I recently ate here with a group of women friends and found the whole experience average at best. The front desk host was cold, rude and unhelpful with chip on his shoulder and I was an imposition by asking if my party had already arrived. The service timing was off, which compromised our dining experience. more

wonderful food, vibe and great service 6/3/2008

My boyfriend and I went for my birthday. the service was warm and friendly, the food was delicious, and we had a wonderful time. very romantic and intimate. more

Lacking hospitality 3/28/2008

I was somewhat disappointed in the lack of hospitality shown last evening when I asked friends to join me for a cocktail and an appetizer. We were obviously taking up a ""valuable"" table, as the waiter and expo asked numerous times if we were finished with dishes and glasses still half full. After 3 or 4 times, we finally gulped down the rest and quickly paid our bill - obviously, the warmth was lacking. Although the food and wine were excellent, I would ask them to reconsider the word ""hospitality"". more

Try the view from the bar... 2/29/2008

My boyfriend and I stopped in recently on a Sunday evening for a bite and of course it was packed. They promptly offered us a couple of seats in the bar area overlooking the restaurant. It was great taking in the atmosphere from there, and really was much more romantic than a standard table. The seared foie gras could not be better...even compared to some of the best establishments in Manhattan. Service impeccable. We'll be back soon. more

Number one all around! 4/20/2007

We went to Zoe on a Sunday night with another couple from San Fran and instead of getting a babysitter we brought along our 2-year old daughter, praying that 1) she would behave and 2) the staff was cool with kids. Well our dreams came true; daughter was brilliant but the waitstaff/maitre'd, were even more so. A huge thank you for making our daughter feel special and welcomed, versus ""dealt with"". Pros: excellent staff, wonderful food Cons: parking more

Fine Dining At It's Pinnacle 3/12/2007

At last, a fine dining restaurant that offers impeccable service, mouthwatering cuisine and reasonable prices that won't leave you broke. It's best to dine before 6pm because you will find nearby street parking and then only pay till 6pm. The regular menu prices are reasonable that warrants repeat visits once the 25 for $25 deal expires the end of this month. You may want to make multiple reservations this month to take full advantage of Chef's Scott's wonderful cuisines at rock bottom prices. I paid extra for two generous slabs of oregon rabbit pate that was excellent. The ricotta gnudi is simply fantastic that makes you wish italian restaurants would replace their gnocchi with gnudi. The prime beef coulet is generously served with 4 perfectly cooked medium rare beef. A generous serving of spinach with pearl onions and bacon and creamy mashed potatoes accompanies the beef. The dessert, a creamy not too decadent but perfect milk chocolate potde creme with cherries and peppermint sauce and a dollop of whipped cream is wonderful. Service is impeccable that all neighboring restaurants should emulate. Generous pour of single serving wine, prompt removal of dishes, constant refillng of water, and an endless bread supply with a plate of EVOO and balsamic vinegar to slather in. Thank you Zoe and Chef Scott for presenting a wonderful menu for the price conscious diner who seeks perfect service and quality food. Pros: Impeccable service, quality reasonably priced cuisine, the GNUDI...OMG!!!! Cons: Nothing more

Excellent Food! 2/25/2007

We spent Valentines Day dinner here and arrived 45 minutes late for our 5pm reservation (the only time slot left). The hostess was very friendly and sat us right away. We never felt rushed. My boyfriend order the seared tuna which was very good, but my duck was divine. It arrived very rare, but was so tender and flavorful. One of the best duck dishes around. They had about 7 inventive cocktails and were beautifully made. We had 2 drinks, 2 entrees, 1 side and 2 delicious desserts for $90. We were very pleased with our first time experience at Restaurant Zoe, definitely a place worth going back! Pros: Great food, good service, nice atmosphere more
