Zoe is the paradigm of northwestern haute cuisine served casually and perfectly by an incredible staff. I've been eating at Zoe since they opened in Belltown and followed them to Capitol Hill, where the food continues to wow. The five course chefs tasting menu is everything. Don't miss this place. Or the Rosemary margarita or anything involving wild boar.

We are at Restaurant Zoe recently, and had a really nice meal. It was a warm evening, so we sat outside in their enclosed patio. It was just perfect. The food was delicious. We had a Wild Boar Bolognese appetizer that was scrumptious. And, I had the most amazing crab stuffed ravioli for dinner. Finished up with house made cookies... More

The green lentils, brocollini w/golden raisins and the spicy margarita were awesome. We brought visiting east coast friends for dinner and everyone enjoyed it. Service was great, too.

The roast chicken was excellent. The Stilton cheese plate was good and the pot a creme was delicious.

More of a bistro than a fine dining venue, the restaurant is simply decorated throughout in dark wood. For our amuse bouche, we were presented with some foie gras parfait crostini with date puree. The parfait was too salty and killed off the flavour of the foie gras. The bread was a homemade focaccia which was soft and well seasoned.... More

We went to the Restaurant Zoe on a Sunday evening. The menu available in the Internet looked promising and we were not disappointed. I opted for the spicy wild board lasagne as an appetizer and it was just delicious. The main dish, a sirloin steak with polenta and various vegetables was also very good. Even though polenta is normally not... More

Great food. Original combinations of very fresh ingredients. Sometimes surprising combinations, but always in the good sense. Well prepared food, served hot to all the guests at the same time (bravo). Impeccable service. Noise level in the "atrium" (the part of the restaurant that can be opened to the outside when the weather allows) was very acceptable. Great wine list... More

My experience tonight at Zoe was a disappointment although the eveing did lead to some thoughts about restaurants and rating them. Can an absolutely outstanding waiter save mediocre food? The answer is clearly no yet at Zoe our waiter – my wife and I together for dinner – was a phenomenal server. Along with being personable, he knew the menu... More

The Good: Awesome service! The servers were really great. I also love the interior, it's a beautifully decorated space. Very 'modern barn' but it really works. The technical preparation of the food was also quite good, for example, my duck was perfectly cooked. Presentation was top notch, the food looked beautiful. The Bad: The actual taste of the food was... More
