My husband and I were traveling and searching for a place to have dinner in Athens. Zoe’s was the perfect spot. This is dining, not eating. White tablecloths, subtle jazz music, a fine wine list, and excellent food!

Athens is a charming college town and Zoe's is the perfect spot to enjoy dinner. Loved the inventive craft cocktails. Loved the food and the ambiance. Great for a special meal or just a normal weekend dinner. Servers very helpful. Highly recommend.

As we tend to stay away from name brands, our Athens friends picked Zoe for our big night out. Waitress (awesome shaved head) was fantastic and bantered with us and did a phenomenal job. Food was very good. We all skipped alcohol as we were...More
