Located in the northern part of Austin, Zed's is a nice getaway from fast food joints. This place has a quaint patio area in the back where they sometimes host bands. The air is one of an upscale restaurant but anyone and everyone goes there. They're steak is juicy and tender and their drinks pair nicely as well. What's the... More

I believe this place closed as we went for Sunday lunch around noon and there was nobody there and the place was locked up.

Had a wonderful dinner after recommended by our hotel. It was late so I had a salad and the soup - both delicious !! The ambiance was nice - also has a bar area with tvs for sporting events - a large meeting room for those needs. Very yummy !!!

We called to make a reservation, and despite their looking like they are open on their website, it seems that they only do private parties now.

I used to really like this place and looked forward to it when visiting Austin regularly. This place is no longer open for normal business, only for events as of 11/12/16 per a sign on the door. Very disappointing.

Zed's has been one of my favorites in the Austin area for a while. Had a chance to visit again this past weekend and was not disappointed. My friend and I only had appetizers, but they were so good! We had the Goat Cheese on honey served with crustinis and the Crab Croquettes. Both were so good. I also had... More

While visiting family in Austin, we went to Zed's for happy hour. I ordered the baby back half rack with regular fries and a beer. The food was great, the service was fast and friendly, and yes it only cost eight dollars for a full half rack of 6 to 7 ribs. I'll definitely be going back when I'm back... More

We were regular Zed's patrons when it first opened & it was fantastic. After it closed & reopened, we weren't enthusiastic to go back because of the menu (too eclectic). However, we recently ate there on 3 occasions--two brunch & one dinner--because the menu seemed much improved. All I can say is, it has potential for being great, but falls... More

I had the occasion of visiting Zed's last night with a group of women and the food was okay. My only complaint is that some of us paid for our food with cash and when the waiter returned with our change he did not give us all of our money back. When I questioned him about the actual coin change... More

I almost left when I pulled into the parking lot, because there were very few cars, on a Thursday night, not usually a good sign. The hostess offered the dining area or the lounge. I opted for the not so dark lounge with the other 6 people I saw In the restaurant. The lounge consisted of the bar mostly 4... More
