    Stopped in for the breakfast buffet last weekend prior to joining a seminar. Overall the food and service were pretty good. I did experience a couple of minor issues though. First issue was with the toaster. It does not heat up very well, and I had to run my bread though 5 times, before it was mildly toasted. It was still not toasted as much as I wanted, but I got tired of standing there and running the bread through repeatedly. The other issue is that the food on the line was a little cool, not nice and hot. I would expect that even at a buffet the food should be hot. Other than that, as I had mentioned earlier, the food and service were quite sufficient.

    This was our 1st visit to Zink & we were celebrating my husband's b'day. I had the wild mushroom & poblano chile crepe appetizer and filet mignon as a main dish. The crepe was very tasty but too rich to finish. The filet was grilled to perfection and the steak sauce served on the side was a masterful surprise. My husband enjoyed Thai chicken wontons (appetizer) and flank steak with chipotle-lime fries and tomatillo salsa. Beautiful presentation, attentive but not over-bearing service. Reasonably priced bottles of wine. The sous-chef, maître d' greeted us and other servers pitched in to assist our capable and courteous server. Next time, we'll either enjoy appetizers OR main dishes--but not both. We look forward to trying lunch at Zink!

    You don't typically expect a great dining experience at a hotel restaurant, but Zink is a happy diversion from that rule. We're locals and Zink is a restaurant that we choose to go to, we're not going because we're staying at the hotel. The chef cooks creative, fresh dishes that always please the palate. The menu offerings change with each season and the daily specials make deciding what to have even more difficult! They always have one or two wines by the glass that catch my eye to try with my meal. We always leave happy and full.

    We arrived with friends for our 43rd wedding anniversary. We immediately felt welcome and knew it would be a fun dinner. Stephanie was especially fun and we enjoyed bantering with her. Kind of quiet for a Saturday evening but Zink suited our needs and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food was very good and the decor is fresh and modern.

    Convenient with onsite parking. Food is good, not great. The wontons were nicely crisp on the outside but cold inside making me believe they were frozen... The shrimp enchiladas served in a cast iron skillet were extremely hot and did not cool to a tolerable level all the time I was trying to eat them.

    We were there with a party of 8 on a Monday evening. Several of us wanted to order the smoked scallops, but were told they were out. Other than that, everyone seemed to enjoy their entrees. The shrimp wraps apps were a big hit. The Ruby Trout, Wood Oven enchilladas and pork belly entreess all got thumbs up! The server did a great job - I can't remember his name, but he was very friendly and attentive with a nice sense of humor.

    Brunch was officially over when we got there at 1 on Sunday for some reason. We had a reservation and the place was completely empty, nevertheless we were seated next to the bathroom and close to the kitchen. My Korean BBQ flatbread was not great. The chicken sandwich on naan was popular but not terrifically notable. $9 per tiny mimosa was a surprise on the bill. Service was fine, but then we were the only ones there. Decor was nice and high end. The prices matched the decor but not the food. They were cleaning up while we were eating, dirty mop bucket out 20 feet from our table. Sweeping up. Not into it.

    The food was good here and service also good. Not much going on the restaurant on a Saturday night so I really couldn't find a category to specifically rate this place except a typical hotel restaurant on Saturday night--quiet, but not romantic. We liked the fresh bread they served and my entree was very good, but my partner was disappointed in his flat bread pizza. Happy hour prices were a value.

    The food is great at Zink. And the service is even better. The hostess who seated us was personable and sincere, as we had a conversation about Dining Out for Life that showed how much the staff was committed to the charity. Our server Natasha was outstanding, attentive but not intrusive, patient as we took way longer than we should to make up our minds about what to order, and just generally a pleasant and endearing person who was engaging but professional. I highly recommend Zink.

    The service and food were ok, but I expected it to be outstanding and was very disappointed. The food for the price should have been hot coming out of the kitchen and very tasty, it wasn't. The service was poor when we did not receive timely refills or were checked on more than once. It was not worth the time or money.

    We had a group of 9 for Easter Brunch and Zink Kitchen + Bar was the perfect choice. I made the reservation long-distance and sight unseen and we couldn't have been more pleased with the whole experience. The food was excellent as was the service. Our party included some with food allergies and the chefs and servers were all very helpful and knowledgeable. Our table in the Atrium was elegant and allowed us to visit with one another while enjoying a delicious brunch. Each time we explored the brunch items we were surprised and impressed with the variety and quality. Thank you so much for helping to make our Easter special.

    My wife and I have come 3 times to Zink for special occasions. Each time, we have had good food, good service, and a good time. We tend to eat early, as we like a relatively quiet atmosphere. Our only objection is that the dining area tends to be chilly, and we usually wear a jacket or sweater for warmth. On our most recent visit, we had an appetizer (or a half-salad) and the Chicken Sausage with Pasta dish from the entree section. Very filling. I had a house wine, and it was perfectly adequate for my needs. [Also, as we were there during happy hour, it was discounted, which I hadn't expected!] Some day we will make a meal of appetizer + salad or flatbread pizza. Looked good at a nearby table!

    I am Jim's friend . However this is my e-mail so you can change the name if you care to. It was a pleasant evening with friends. Our waiter Tylor was outstanding. He was patient with us ex;plaining the menu and not rushing us at all. However the guys said the beef selection was tough. I had a wonderful chicken soup and a salad that was enough for the 4 of us. I find extra large servings such as that is a poor presentation. The fish on it was dry. I'm being honest since I like your restaurant and feel you could make some adjustments so the locals will come as well as hotel guests. Hope this helps. Peggy

    Food was very good. I had the Paella and it was perfect. Mussels were a tad small but hey this is the middle of Colorado. Wife love the Arctic Char and it was a huge serving. Interesting Pomegranate dessert, probably go another way next time. Drinks were cheap and the total bill was just about right for the 2 of us. With tip ~85. We walked in and were the only people there although it was on a weekend and they are typically busy during the week. Although it's in a hotel they do a really good job at separating the kids in the pool from the people having a quiet dinner. Will go back.

    we were greeted very well but that was about it. the menu was restirctive and the $8 kids meals were outrageous. My salad was good but should have been $12 not $15. My wife's fish should have $18 to $20 not $26. But the worst was the waiter, he essentially stumbled on to us with no introduction then he showed frustration when we didnt know what we wanted from the less then twenty item menu. We then were offered to the chef to make a sandwich of our choice. Spent $74 on a mediocure meal that I was left unimpressed.

    I selected Zink from Open Table for our Valentine's Day celebration. Most restaurants were booked so I gave this restaurant a shot ( a shot in the dark). We were delightfully surprised. They have obtained a new chef who presented a wonderful special for the holiday. First we had the Drunken Mussels, (delicious), then a light fresco salad with creamy goat cheese, the T-bone lamb, cooked perfectly and served with crispy crab potatoes and blanched spinach, and finished with chocolate mouse pops and strawberry sauce. They also make a fabulous Zink martini. The service was efficient and friendly. (We had Tyler as our server.) I heard that they have a great brunch on Sundays, so we plan on a return visit to try that as well.

    My wife and I make it a habbit to try new locations whenever we can and I decided to take my wife to Zink for Valentines Day as the reviews read well and I thought the special $55/person menu looked nice. We could tell there was potential here, but by going with their pre-packaged Valentines Day menu we seriously didn't choose well. The best part of the event was the attentiveness of the service, second to none. However, while the dish presentations were very professional looking and the flavors of the main course items were nice, the value for the overall meal was lacking and simply not worth even half the cost. Sadly, the food was somewhat on par with ordinary chain steak houses, but for twice the price of their best cuts.
