My fiancé and I try to go to Zoe once a month. The people are delightful, fun, and exhibit professionalism as well. First, the cocktails, I'm a HUGE fan of Mary's Pondwater Martini; it is a dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives they prepare...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.

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...More
