This is our favorite casual but fine dining place in Athens. Wait staff are always accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. The food is clearly the best prepared with quality ingredients in town (and we have eaten everywhere in Athens). Probably our favorite meal is...More

Came here for dinner and started at the bar, which was a good choice as the cocktails are great. Was well looked after at both bar and table with very attentive service. The food was good but not as memorable as fine dining style food...More

Zoe’s does nice restaurant food. I would literally describe the cuisine as nice American restaurant food . It’s high quality. Service is good. Prices are reasonable for what it is. The non-alcoholic drinks are great and made with care which is rare. Good place for...More

We enjoyed our meal at Zoe. My dad had black grouper, I had a shrimp and peanut Thai dish, my mom and my daughter had chicken picatta and another chicken dish and my husband had hangar steak. Their pasta was homemade and delicious. Our waitress...More

Wanted to have a nice dinner with my daughter during mom's weekend. Zoe didn't disappoint. Though my scallops were over cooked, our salads were delicious and my daughter loved her pasta meal. Waitress was very good. Atmosphere was cozy. Would go again.

The food was good. We decided to share several courses to try many things. We were told they did not have any more of the "special" for the evening that we ordered after we already had our appetizers & salad. At that point substituting caught...More

I am a patron, not an employee, but I have made reservations there in the past for a special occasion or a largish group.
