Went to Zoe for the first time with a friend, and couldn't wait to bring my sister back there. Second time around I used a Gilt certificate and was equally pleased with the food, the ambience and the service. Our server was friendly, and helpful. We each had a cocktail, which was alright. First course was the Kale and Radicchio salad with anchovy, parmesan and burrata toast which was very good. If you don’t usually like the bite of radicchio or kale, then this is not for you, but I enjoyed it. Before the next course Chef Zoe came out to say hello. She was bright eyed and lovely. It was such a nice touch to greet the chef and tell her how much we were enjoying the meal. Second course was Lamb, two ways. One piece was coated with crumbs and the other had a hard seared plain crust, with some pickled veggies on the side. Third course was the whole grilled Dorade which came out piping hot. It was cooked perfectly. I would have liked a little more of the pickled grapes with it though. For dessert they brought us piece of key lime pie and strawberry shortcake. The shortcake was so good I could have eaten it without the toppings, and in my opinion was one of the best strawberry shortcakes I’ve ever had. I liked the key lime too, but the consistency could have been a little firmer. All in all it was a lovely dinner and I would go back again. I’ve already recommended Zoe to friends and will continue to do so.

Got coupon from Gilt to Zoe for $59.50 for 5 course tasting menu for two. Drinks: sake x 2. Course 1: HALF egg with some weird salty sauce on top. Course 2: a small toast with pulled beef or veal with some mustard. Course 3: radicchio salad ( bitter cut up leaves) WTF? We both returned the dish...never got replacement, even though we said it was bitter. Course 4: broiled fish. The only descent one, however no side with it, only few pieces of marinated grapes. Course 5: dessert. Can I call it that? Strawberry shortcake wannabe. A big mess. The waiter could use a few lessons on how to be friendly and smile ( esp how to be kid friendly.) Ordered plain pasta for one child and hamburger ($17) with FF for the other and a cocktail for my husband $12. The bill was $31.57 plus $59.50 that i prepaid. gratuity was based on full price: $36.80. Decor: plain and boring. Bottom line: came home hungry and less than satisfied with this night family outing. Very disappointing!

I had brunch at Zoe a few weeks ago with friends. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was laid back and comfortable- the perfect combination for a lazy weekend morning. We all had a wonderful time.

Small but cozy LES restaurant with minimalist decor and very good food. There is a lot of heart put into the cooking at ZOE. My favorite dish was a bucatini made with uni and cracked pepper. Really delicious turkey rillettes also.
