This was my second time to zinc and it couldn't have been better. The fact that you can get a full portion or sampler portion of every dish really makes the place. Great wine exceptional service and great ( hot food ) zinc never disappoints. I will be back soon!!!!!

Best in Town
My wife and I dined at ZInc for our anniversary. She had the lamb and I had the tenderloin. Both were of excellent quality and prepared perfectly. Our server was attentive but not smothering always appearing at just the right moment. Love the wine list.

Our Dinner at ZInc was our favorite meal while we stayed in Edmonton. Service was excellent and the food divine. Well done Edmonton.

I love the food choices and the option of selecting smaller servings and more of everything. I had two appetizers and two main courses and an alchololic beverage for only $33.00! I have season's tickets to the Citadel and as a group we try different restaurants within walking distance. This restuarant was a find. Will definitely return, this time with more friends! Thanks for the 10% discount for AGM members!

Had a wonderful dinner with friends from out of town. We oredered the tasting menu with wine pairings. The chef had no issue with changing my friends dinner to accomodate her specific tastes. Loved everything!!

The staff was friendly and food was good...cant ask for much more!
Best part of our Zinc experiance was the apitizers .... hands down!

Went on a tuesday night for our anniversary dinner. We were the only people in the restaurant for an hour until another couple arrived. The service was great (of course we were the only people there). Had the Chef's 5 course meal with wine pairing and we enjoyed it very much. I would like to go back again during the winter so I can experience all the lights of downtown at night.

The food, the wine, the VIEW, the staff...everything was phenomenal! Highly recommend !

Had an outstanding meal at Zinc's. Never rated a restaurant this highly before. Everything was perfect.

Zinc exceeded my very high expectations. Everything, from the moment we walked in, was perfect. The food was incredible (my husband and I are VERY hard to please). A++++ on everything!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always tasty & presented wonderfully. Our server was attentive but food service was slow. We were a table of 6 and it wasn't busy so we thought food would come out promptly. Overall, we enjoyed the food & ambience (as always) but food service could be quicker.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I started off with the short rib surrounded with ravioli. It was okay but the medeira sauce and onions was too sweet. The main dish was breaded fish and salad which was excellent. The champagne dressing was exquisite. The best by far was the banana bread pudding which is one of the best desserts I've ever had, especially when paired with the Sauterne.
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love it Love it
Group of 6 going on Friday night in Summer time, that's only 2 tables occupied. so is not very busy. our waiters she is so nice and friendly, she recommended Duck to us and it's a right choice. just like any other fine dinning the portion is not big, but we do enjoy the food and place.

Zinc is a very good restaurant for lunch. Great atmosphere and great food.

Nice for lunch
Had an enjoyable mid-week lunch at Zinc. Everyone liked their food, portions were spot-on and service friendly and prompt. Nice ambiance and reasonable noise level. I imagine as an after-work drinks location it could have a bit more buzz as you'd want. Convenient location in the AGA building. Will return.

20th Anniversary Dinner
Zinc was perfect! Our server, Claire, was amazing and knowledgeable. We had a great time with her. The food was wonderful... everything was top notch and was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary! We will definitely return!

Zinc is First Class
Does not get much better than Zinc. Service, food, ambience top notch.

Go for the chef's tasting! Great way to explore the menu. I was surprised at how empty the restaurant was for a Saturday night however, but we enjoyed the intimate atmosphere.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
Had the chef''s tasting menu with the wine pairing. Outstanding value. For $100, Got to try small portions of 8 dishes plus salad and dessert, 5 types of wine and icewine. Excellent service, restaurant deserves to be busier than it was.

Went for brunch with a few friends. I'm vegetarian and the chef was very accommodating in creating something for me that wasn't on the menu! Definitely a very classy place, and excellent for meetings because its quiet.

Kudos to the chef=- I had the salmon with fennel/grapefruit salad= and it was outstanding!! Excellent portion size, and the superbe bread pudding desert was soooo good!!
My husband had the cod with quinoa and that was so tasty-he was impressed
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greatly exceeded our expectations!
This was our best dining experience in many, many, months. Not having eaten here before we chose the Chefs Tasting, which actually included a taste of 3 appetizers and 4 entrees, all of which were wonderful (except I prefer my pork medium rare). All were inventively different and new approaches from the standard fare. The wine selection was also excellent. We will definitely return soon.

We had brunch on a Sunday
We had brunch on a Sunday and the food was excellent. More important, though, was that I asked for something to be done gluten-free, and the chef went out of his way not only to accomodate that but make it delicious. It was much appreciated. Our waitress was so nice and had such a warm personality that it was a wonderful experience all around. We will be back for dinner!

Love this place
Excellent food and service. My family had a wonderful time.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but...
Had an excellent meal at Zinc - a sharply designed downtown restaurant. Only problem was no one was there! It was a Tuesday night, so I didn't expect a big crowd but there were only two other people in the restaurant. It looked quite dark from the outside (couldn't see much in the way of lights from the street), so it is possible people thought the place was not open. I wasn't sure myself and only tried the door because I'd made an Open Table reservation. Unfortunately the ambiance and energy associated with a crowd was missing as a result.
On a good night with a good crowd (before or after the symphony perhaps) this would be a fine dining choice. It is readily evident they employ a top flight chef here.

Fine Restaurant & Great Location
Had a family birthday dinner here - food was great - location was great with a nice view of City Hall. Service was great and would recommend to anyone.

Love the everchanging Mac & Cheese
Zinc is a nice place for dinner, but very expensive. So if you are looking to try Zinc on a budget, I would highly recommend their lunch and brunch options. Every day they have a different Mac and Cheese, and every time I have tried the dish it has been unique, artistic, and super tasty. They were also very accommodating to me as a vegetarian and willing to modify any dish so that i could try it. Staff are always friendly and I have yet to be disappointed for lunch!
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
I took my partner to Zinc for his birthday after hearing how good the food was from a client that had their wedding there. And the food was absolutely fabulous. We had the smaller portions of the appetizers which allowed us to try a couple. I had the pork entree and he had the beef, both of which were superbly prepared. The only disappointment was the beet side, that although colourful, lacked flavour. The service was attentive but not cloying and the drink menu was diverse. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to enjoy a nice evening out, with great food in a modern upscale atmosphere.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal and lovely evening
The Chef's tasting menu was a great choice. While normally you select one dish from a set list of appetizers and mains, with this tasting menu we were given a small taste of each. Overall it was very good - make sure you go hungry!
The only note I will make was that while the service was adequate, it certainly wasn't up to the standard of a five star. The servers were there, they made the essentials happen (and did well), but there wasn't anything extra. For example, our wine glasses were never refilled for us (not necessary, I suppose, but typically in this type of restaurant that's a given).
Also, for a Saturday night the restaurant was only 1/3 full by 7:30. I'm not sure why? Food is good, service is meh.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
check for closing time
Closing time is sort of optional, depending on the mood of the staff, so we started a meal at 8:00PM and would have loved to stay until 11:00PM but were asked (politely, at 10:05PM) to leave by 10:30. Not good form after $350 tab for 4.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great place to eat. Easy to get into for lunch which always surprises me as the food and service is top notch.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice tasting menu
The restaurant offers tasting plates on all their menu items, a great way to try quite a few items. There was a large party going on inside the AGA that at first was very distracting and loud but I think they asked to turn down the music because after a little while it wasn't so bad.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
They took the salmon off the menu & I have very very disappointed about that.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you so much. Great food...great presentation.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I recently took my sister to the Zinc restaurant for lunch as it was her birthday. I wanted to pick a place that I'd never been before. It turned out to be a lovely afternoon. The food was very good, the servor was such a polite young lady, and overall we really enjoyed ourselves.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful option of tasting menu
Food and service was great. The ability to choose a full size vs. a tasting portion from the menu is such a wonderful idea. If they include a descriptive statement on their on line menu, it might attract more people to go to Zinc.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM

The food had great flavour and was very good. Would defiantly go back again

A Hidden Gem
The view alone is wonderful and then the food which has never disappointed , sometimes I think the portions could be more but thats just because it's so good , the waitress are always there and are quick to explain the menu , the brunch on the weekend is great also , this has quickly become a favourite and I'm picky.
