A word from Zin Room
The Zin Room maintains a cozy appearance, warm colors, and the active sights and sounds from the exquisite, floor to ceiling fireplace. Lofty ceilings give way to a semi-private mezzanine area for dining. We offer a lounge area with happy hour Monday thru Saturday from 3:00pm - 6:30pm and all day Sunday. We offer live music several days a week including most Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. An extensive wine list was the inspiration to name the Zin Room, that also presents a selection of classic and contemporary cocktails, including several signature drinks. "The AmaZIN Martini" made with Zinfandel, cream and raspberry liquor or the "Bourbon for Breakfast" featuring bacon infused bourbon made in-house. Guests can expect graceful touches in all the cocktails made at the Zin Room. The Zin Room also features five private rooms for banquets, receptions, and conferences to suit your needs.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went out for a night to celebrate our anniversary, I've been here before but he had not. We both loved it! He had an amazing Maker's Mark cocktail infused with bacon with a strip of bacon in it! Strange but good! My Ama-Zin cocktail was fabulous and we had the Cajun steak bites, perfectly done, the gouda mac and cheese and the truffle risotto...all were great! The worst part was it a was a tad warm and muggy in there, since it was muggy outside it would have been nice to be a little cooler but it wasn't unbearable. Also the crooner guy was there which we loved since we both love the old standards, very romantic way to spend our anniversary!"

  • "Our experience at the Zin Room was good! We purchased the Living Social deal and it was well worth it. The good was excellent! The only drawback was the service. When I got there, there was no one stationed at the host table, so after I waited a few minutes, a bar customer seated me. Then our bartender/waitress seemed very overwehlmed. It was right before the Bruno Mars concert, but it wasn't very busy, and she seemed to be running all over the place! It was a good overall experience, though!"

  • "Great night at the Zin Room! We ate here before a concert at the Centurylink and it was the perfect choice. The staff got us in and out in plenty of time! We started our meal with the smoked gouda corn chowder and a Caesar salad, both great! For entrees, I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf with mashed potatoes and braised kale (TO DIE FOR). My dining group had the Salmon with Ratatouille and the Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetable "Noodles" (julienned vegetables, sautéed). They cleared their plates before I had a chance to try anything so I'll use their clean plates as a sign that they loved it. We also ordered a side of the bacon-cheddar grits because why not? AND some of their famous mac 'n' cheese. Both were AMAZING. Thanks, Zin! I'll be back!"

  • "Our server was extremely attentive through our entire meal. We ordered an appetizer that was too salty to finish. My husband and I both ordered medium rare blackened steaks for the entree. Our steaks were neither med rare nor blackened. The 4asparagus spears were skinny and shriveled. The creamy potatoes tasted good but had large pieces of peeling mixed in which made enjoying them difficult. Next time we plan to spend over $100 on a meal we will go elsewhere and enjoy our food as well as our service."

  • "My husband and I thought the view was beautiful and the food excellent. The restaurant was quiet except for a constant slamming (every 5 - 7 minutes) for something that sounded like a freezer door but other than that it was fine. Our waiter was very polite and would never put us in an situation where we had to look for him. I will definitely go back again. I recommend this restaurant for anyone too who wants to enjoy a romantic date night."

  • "The wait staff was amazing. They were attentive to our needs and focused on maintaining our experience. The food was ok. I had the scallops and they were extremely salty to the point that I could not eat them. The waiter replaced them with a new order and they remained just as salty and I again could not eat them. I was extremely dissatisfied with my food experience."

  • "It took us over a half an hour to get our food, and our server did not seem engaged or interested in our experience. We had to ask about our food, and then the waitress seemed mildly annoyed. We did not receive much attention after it arrived. The food however was very good."

  • "We have dined at the Zin Room at least 6 or 7 times. It is hit or miss. I would say 5 out of the 7 have been a miss. This particular Sunday we were going to the Broadway Show Wicked at the Orpheum across the street. (as were most people in the restaurant) We arrived at Noon. We still didn't have water or have our order taken at 12:30. We asked the waitress what was the problem. She said they had No bartender, the hostess left, No manager on duty and two waitresses. The food was wrong. I had a Turkey Ruben..no Sauerkraut. My friend had a Strawberry salad, no goat cheese. My sister had a Blue Cheese, Bacon Burger with sweet potato fries. Regular fries and No Blue Cheese! "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "This was our second trip for my husband and me, but we took our friends who had never been there. We all loved it! Great dinner before the show at the Orpheum, great location, easy parking, and great service! "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The new menu is fabulous! We went to the Zin room prior to a performance at the Orpheum. It was super incredibly handy. We had close street parking for the show and a quick walk to the Orpheum after dinner. Their new menu had just taken over prior to our visit. They did keep some of the old favorites, but updated and added a greater variety of items. The waiters/hostess were courteous and helpful, but slightly slow (my only criticism). The food was flavorful and perfectly cooked. Overall a splendid experience. "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "I have been here before and it was just stellar. This time I could not even believe it was the same restaurant. I arrived before the rest of my party and waited nearly 10 minutes for a water. I booked through Open Table with the expectation of a Mother's Day buffet - this was not the case. I got an email a few days before stating something may have been inaccurate but the email did not have any details, I found out it was the buffet upon arrival. Our water and coffee without without refills, most of our food tasted good (though sides were missing) but it sat under the lamp for way too long and arrived cold. One of our entrees was inedible. The best entree was missing a main ingredient. The worst part - it was NOT busy!!"

  • "I wanted to treat my girlfriend to a nice dinner before surprising her with tickets to a show at the Orpheum. Given its location, the Zin Room seemed like the perfect place. And it was. Great food, wide variety of wine, and even a bit of live music. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating to some of the time constraints we had that night."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "After reading some of the other reviews, I was surprised at our experience. I had been in this room many years ago when it was not the Zin Room. The owners expanded the space and redecorated it completely. They did a very good job. The space was modern but romantic. It was a Saturday evening and their were many people in the restaurant. However, we got almost immediate, friendly service. We did not have to wait long for our drinks and food. The food itself was excellent and, for us, just the right amount. The only issue was that is was somewhat noisy, but it was a Saturday evening and there were quite a few parties going on. Next time we will try it on a less crowed night."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I have been to the Zin Room before and had good service and loved the singer who performs on Friday nights. My mom was coming to visit from out of town so I made reservations for Friday night. We were seated, our drinks brought to us, and our orders taken. Then nothing for 30 minutes. The waiter refilled our water once and said our food was taking longer than normal but no explanation. We sat there another 30 minutes, nobody came to our table at all during that time. Our food never came. We walked out after sitting for just over an hour being pretty much ignored the entire time. We walked down to Sullivans and had a delicious meal with exceptional and friendly service. Next time it's Sullivan's the first time. "

  • "We had tickets to a show at the Orpheum and wanted to a good, nearby place to have dinner. We found the Zin Room through Restaurant.com, and it was perfect. We arrived ten minutes before our reservation, and we were seated quickly. The server even asked us if we were planning on going to the show, so he could pace his service around our schedule. The food was fantastic. My wife had the Zin Macaroni and Cheese, and I had the BBQ Short Ribs. Both dishes were full of flavor, though I think my wife won the competition; that Macaroni and Cheese is amazing. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to eat downtown on a Friday night."

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant - was recommended by a local. Food was amazing. Portions a little on the small side, and they didn't bring one of our side dishes with our actual meal, but once they did bring it was great! Good wine selection. Was a little stuffy (tempature wise) in the restaurant, but other than that, would definitely go back."

  • "We both enjoyed a wonderfully prepared meal and of course we shared with each other to which we unanimously agreed we would eagerly come back and similarly share another pair of offerings. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Our experience was on a Friday evening before going to another event. Reservation was honored and seating prompt. Service overall was really great and the atmosphere was just right, quiet, efficient but never felt rushed. This being our second time at The Zin, it seemed to me that the menu was smaller and less varied than before. In the end we had a nice meal but not really up to the price range they charge, or what we remembered from our first visit. We'll go again in the future, but will be looking for alternatives."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "They were out of several things we ordered and our waiter was pretty green. I understand newness, but he was pretty slow on top it. all of our food was really bland which was such a disappointment because I had several people say it was great. It was our anniversary so kind ofa let down for a special occasion. But maybe we'll give it aanother try some time."

  • "Awful service. Ten minutes before we saw a waiter. When he did eventually arrive, he was drenched in sweat, did not explain the menu, never told us the specials (and there were some, I overheard other waiters). We ordered a bottle of wine, after waiting 30 minutes he came back and said they could not find that bottle and asked if I wanted something else. In ordered another bottle, he brought the wrong one. The food was uninspired at best. The bruschetta was simply toasted bread topped with either chickpeas (good), beats and goat cheese (OK), or diced tomato and onion (not seasoned). The onions in the French onion soup were burned. The short ribs were good, tender and flavorful. The deserts seemed pre-made and frozen. "

  • "Waited 20 minutes to get served. Our salad came out before bottle of wine food was so-so lacking in flavor and spice. But once I found a Band-Aid in my linguine and clams the night was over. The manager was very apologetic and assured us he this would be addressed. He stated in the 10 years he had been a restaurant manager this is the first time he had ever seen this happen. I certainly wish it wouldn't have happened to me."

  • "I could of got the same food at half the price at some other restaurant. my wife and I went for an anniversary dinner and we didn't like the food I had a grilled chop and she got steak. Her steak was some of the worst steak I have ever tasted she couldn't eat it, it had no taste what so ever... Anyway service was slow and they made you feel as if it was a privilege to be eating there, which wasn't the case at all. topping it off the prices were ridiculous I honestly believe they have raised there price because for some reason they believe themselves to have a fancy atmosphere! Again not the case There is nothing fancy about the place."

  • "We love The Zin Room. It is has a beautiful and unique atmosphere. The food is always delicious and we've always had great service. Every time we stop we are always very pleased! The great thing about this restaurant is whenever your in the area they are open. There hours of operation are very accommodating. It's a great place to go after a show at the Holland or the Orpheum."

  • "We dined at Zin prior to attending an Orpheum Theatre performance. It is a perfect spot to get an early parking spot and then walk to the Theatre. The food was excellent and our waitress friendly and fun. When we first arrived there were not many diners (we were quite early because of the performance), and the music was over powering. We asked that it be turned out... no problem... they willingly accommodated us. Highly recommend this downtown spot !"

But entrée arrived before soup and salad with explanation that soup and salad would be complimented to us along with a free desert. Great recovery by restaurant from its mistake. I would recommend this place to all based on our first experience there. Any place that corrects its mistakes as generously as they did is to be commended. Food was delicious, prepared well, and presented gorgeously."
