Its like visiting family when we walk into Zoe! Sheila and Alex are amazing people and they keep us coming back along with the wonderful dishes! The best French Toast out there and a souvlaki, the size for 3 people! Have been there dozens of times and never had a bad meal.

Two words characterize Zoe's food: (1) Quality, and (2) Portion size. Zoe's is truly a dining experience. You can't beat this place!

The food is very good and affordable. I love the lamb burger. The servings are very generous. No matter how busy they are, you are served quickly and the presentation of the food is great.

I was here for lunch yesterday. It is the first time I visited the new building. I passed by this place on Transit road for a while and noticed that just about every time the parking lot was full. To me, that is always a good sign. I was here last year on the way back from Lockport Garden Walk... More

I've only been here for breakfast and there is always a wait but it's completely worth it! The omelette selection is creative and the ingredients are fresh. Service is always on top of things and the decor at the new building is more upscale but still inviting.

To start the service is fast, courteous and attentive. The breakfast's are plentiful and prepared quickly. Bacon crisp, rye toast is thick and fresh, home fries are thick and firm but not hard, scrambled eggs were perfectly prepared. I love this place...

Stopped in with family to try the new Zoe. Nice new restaurant with a nice bar. They also have seating outside. The booth seating seems a bit tight and the restaurant was very busy. The restaurant seemed a bit loud and it was warm due to the humidity outside. I do not think the air conditioning could handle the constant... More

After years packing loyal customers into their small restaurant, they remodeled the building next door during the summer and opened the new Zoe's this past week, The food is the same, and the service is better - I suspect they have a better kitchen and flow of food. My favorite appetizer is still their seared scollops, and their Greek flat... More
