Restaurant Zoe can be found in the Capital Hill area on Union Street. While the menu is a bit limited there are more than enough options to satisfy almost any tastes. There salads are fresh and well prepared as is there variety of seasonal soups. I had a pasta dish and my work colleague the scallops. Both hit the mark.... More

We really liked this interesting space in Seattle's Capital Hill neighborhood, with an inventive, fresh menu and an industrial feel. At happy hour, oysters were a delicious bargain, along with tasty brussel sprouts and some great beers.

Went for a birthday dinner with my husband and parents. Ambiance is comfortable and lively. We had two suggested starters - both delicious and unique. All four entrees were spot on. Presentation was beautiful and the flavor profiles were creatively complex. This was our second visit to Restaurant Zoe, and it was as reliably enjoyable as the first! Highly recommend.

It provides a good atmosphere and has an excellent bar and wine list at reasonable prices, but we were attarcted more by the appetizer menu and not the main menu. The wine was fantastic at a reaonable price and the appetizers delicious! Highly recommend the steak tartare. However, The main menu only has 4 or five things and none were... More

Especially on a Sunday, it is nice to find a restaurant this good without going downtown to the hotels. A party of 4, we shared 4 appetizers (wild boar pasta exceptional, cheese plate and gnudi quite good, mushroom special just ok). Very short list of entrees; the sablefish and especially the short ribs were excellent (ribs must have been done... More

It was a wonderfully cool, clear evening and we chose to sit on the open patio. Although this is located on a busy corner, the vegetation makes one feel like they are in a very attractive, and quiet, private (well, semi-private when there are other diners) garden. The staff was friendly, the sommelier knowledgable (and helpful). The food was artfully... More

Arrived without reservations on a weekday but able to be seated at table instead of bar. Excellent service and a nice wine list with knowledgeable sommelier. Food very toothsome but as with fine dining portions rather petite. My duck was cooked to perfection. Will return especially on Mondays when most bottles of wine are half price.
