Zin American Bistro
Special occasion placeZin continues to be our go-to place for celebrations, the latest being for our fourth anniversary. The crab cake sandwich special for lunch was perfect, as was the XXX mac & cheese.
We highly recommend it.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect evening...Dinner was amazing! We had a great table on the patio. Nicole the hostess was, as always, exceptionally warm and inviting. Our server Susan was delightful and quite attentive. We were happy that the food was exceptional as the last meal was not quite up to their usual standards. The new kitchen team seems to have hit its stride. Our party ordered the Hanger steak, schnitzel, and Zin Burger and everybody was really pleased with the food. Service was prompt but not rushed, and we had a wonderful bottle of wine to accompany our meal. Can't wait to go back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood deal in Palm SpringsVery good wine list. Food was very good and nicely presented - perhaps a bit too much sauce on the short ribs. Service was excellent. The only glitch was someone had forgotten to change the soup of the day on the chalkboard at the front.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThey need to update theirThey need to update their web site. I was disapointed that they no longer serve Ahi Tuna. Difficult choices when one is trying to watch what they eat. Overall the food was very good, though (just not figure friendly) and service was attentive.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMZin American Bistro can beZin American Bistro can be a busy spot during Palm Spring's high season and like many seasonal restaurants it can effect service. During off season it's much more laid back and enjoyable. A good table outside on the rail offers a great people watching spot which is a big part of PS dining. The food is good to excellent. Our service was outstanding. Our waiter continued to check with us even after he was moved to work behind the bar. There is not doubt we will return.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsZin is one of those restaurants you go back to each and every year because you are never disappointed and this year was no exception! Was surprised to see so many changes -- much more outdoor dining and a new bar since last year's visit. The food is always consistent and if you go, don't pass up their fried chicken and creamed spinach -- a signature dish and it's fantastic! It's also very reasonably priced for a very nice dining experience in Palm Springs.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in a great location.Great food in a great location. Fun to sit on the patio, watch the people go by,, enjoy a tasty cocktail and an excellent meal.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our go to local spotsWe have been to Zin dozens of times with just ourselves or up to 12 people. It can't get any better. It's our go to spot before playing a show (we are musicians). Quick service when you need it. Also can be a nice place to spend a few hours with friends.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent value on the SundayExcellent value on the Sunday brunch, with reasonably priced dishes and unlimited champagne or mimosas for modest single charge. Since renovation about a year and a half ago, the restaurant has a good-sized sheltered outdoor area that's most pleasant in the right seasons.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out in Palm SpringsWe wanted a special dining experience to share with our visiting grown children. We had a mix of menu needs. At Zin we were semi outside dining without being concerned by passing people. Each of us had a delightful and pleasing choice including the prix fixe selection. Our waitperson was a delight, took good care of us and made us laugh. The food was well presented and the whole meal from hors dovers, wine, desert left us all feeling we made the best choice for our evening.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMjust a short walk to the FolliesWas there for dinner before THE FOllIES. I hear the place is really busy later on each evening, but for us, we received a very nice welcome and a place of our choice. We enjoyed the filet of sole... perfectly prepared, and a dish of mussels, which per our choice, we tried it in a lemon grass sauce. YUM. Started off with a Pomegranite martini, made with FRESH fruit. A bit sweet, but delicious! Id go back. Then, walked right over to the follies without having to find more parking. Another plus!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the areas finest! TheOne of the areas finest! The chef knows about finesse and subtlety; and the wine list is excellent. Service is flawless and friendly.
So, apart from the intrusive music in the background and bad acoustics, we enjoyed three of the best hours of our entire week in the desert.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMvery enjoyable -- but tablesvery enjoyable -- but tables a bit too crowded -- we were 6 and there was a small table with two people within half an arms reach but that could be just because it was so busy on the Thursday night downtown P S -- we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the food and the service was really first rate even though she was really busy

We have had the pleasure of dining here for lunch, brunch, and dinner and have never been disappointed.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMYou need some nice off dry Rose´Having visited Zin as a tourist three times now for lunch and dinner and each time feeling complete satisfaction on every visit. I feel totally comfortable saying that this is one of the better high class restaurants in Palm Springs.
Each visit we used their $29. 3-course Prie fixe meal deal from the Palm Springs visitors site and always found the food to be superb, the service very professional, and the ambiance exquisite.
The owner runs a tight ship and this attention to detail is always evident.
You wont go wrong dinning at Zin!1/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
