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 us totally off guard. We went with what was suggested. Portions were not what we... More

Zoe's has been around for a while and has great ambience, friendly wait staff, and a good menu. The bar is top-notch as well. I don't end up here as often as I should but that says more about my laziness than anything. Its very popular around parents' weekend, sibs weekend, and the like so plan or make reservations in...

The atmosphere needed some help - maybe adding some candles and different lighting and ambiance. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious. We will be back!

Great wait staff and clean! Food is terrific! I love the oysters, crepes and the scallops as well as the salmon. Great cocktails as well. Nice place and a treat for Athens. Never a disappointment.

We went to Zoe's on a Saturday evening expecting that there wouldn't be room to sit or a long wait. It took us longer to find a parking spot than to get a table. The restaurant was comfortable and is a little noisy but nothing to complain about. It was filled yet service was fast. The bar took a few... More

We dined here recently with 2 friends and everyone enjoyed their meal for taste and quantity. My chef’s dinner salad was tasty and substantial, with fresh greens, egg slices, assorted veggies and slices of duck($14). The fish dish (halibut, a bit pricey at $26) and the scallops were very good. Wine was reasonably priced. The waitress was friendly, attentive and... More

Had a date night. Dining area is on the small side so I'd recommend reservations. We were seated immediately. Staff was excellent. Wine selections by the glass were limited but well selected. Food was very good. Flavors were great. My wife did comment her shrimp were slightly over cooked. I had no complaints.

Great place to eat located right off of Court Street. French / American menu offerings. Started with the $5.00 Chop Salad: Chopped romaine lettuce with spinach, bacon, blue cheese, and a blend of marinated red bell pepper, onion, and olives blended with buttermilk dressing. Entree - $14.00 Chicken and Mushroom Paprikash: Chicken, Crimini Mushrooms, Bell Pepper, Cauliflower, and Sweet Peas... More
