    We enjoyed a lovely dinner with great service. The only problem was our table - which was right inside the door between the bar area and the dining area. We constantly had people walking by us - either going in or going out! BUT - service, food, wine - everything else was delightful. We highly recommend Bar Zin. We love the concept of small plates. It helps us dine well - and not over do it!!

    Haven’t been to Bar Zin in a while, and decided to try dinner there again. We had the scallop ‘small plate’ on menu. All I could taste was butter, butter, butter. Their ‘small plates’ have entre prices, so be aware. Husband had tuna ‘small plate’ which was delicious. Felt very rushed with attentive staff.. Our dinner lasted an hour and we were out the door.

    From Heather at the bar to PK and Katie as our servers, we could not be more pleased! We had the halibut, grilled shrimp and rack of lamb. All were excellent! I highly recommend BarZin if you've not been before.

    We go there often and were taken to a table outside which we declined as it was hot and the table was in the sun. We next were taken to a large high top in the back room and asked to sit at the bar. Service was OK. Entree order was delivered in the wrong portion size. We won't be back there for quite awhile!

    Fun Friday night on Amelia Island. The smoked cheddar cheese on the charcuterie was fantastic. Paired really well with a bottle of Juggernaut cabernet sauvignon. The prosciutto on the charcuterie was heavy like aged ham. The country French salad was oh so fresh and tasty. The crab-encrusted flounder was amazing. The veal piccata was flavorful but was overfloured. Terrrific service from Patrick! The Lemoncello cake for dessert was heavenly as were the lemon drop msrtini and bourbon Mahattan after-dinner drinks prepared by Shane. This restaurant never disappoints!!

    The catch of the day was really good, but pricey at $36 for a small plate of flounder. The fried calamari was more like calamari fingers, and while not awful, a bit uninspired. Country salad was amazing. The small plate of the day was an over-battered and over-fried egg roll. I think we were expecting something a little more upscale, but with the TV screens it almost seemed like a sports bar. Our server was Connie and she identified herself as new. She was lovely, attentive, and spot on. The jalapeño margarita was good.

    We loved the food and the service! Truly special. The noise nearly stole our joy. Inside is simply too loud. Nobody can hear, so everyone speaks louder making things even worse. Sit outside. The heat is more bare-able than the noise. Simply great people and great food. We all loved it. Find a way to enjoy it where the noise isn’t overbearing.

    My wife and I got away for the weekend to Amelia Island… I knew of this place from a long time ago and the fact that it was still in business told me it was great! As I suspected… The scallop risotto is the Mac daddy of everything

    The food and service were great. I sat outside on the porch, and it was beautiful! The fried oysters were fantastic and so was the bread pudding, the salad, and the tuna. I think it is pretty noisy inside (that might be just the bar, I don't know), but it was lovely outside.

    Our server Katie was very nice and she did a good job. The food was really good but not great. Calamari was a little chewy and the chicken skewers were a little dry. But flavors were great. Young girl who greeted you when you arrived was not friendly. We were a little disappointed but love Bar Zin and will be back in time.

    The service and food were spectacular and the restaurant is ver nice. The noise level was so high though so it was tough to have a conversation. That said, I think it was more about the loud guests than the restaurant. We would go again and perhaps sit outside

    Bar Zin is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit. We never have a bad meal here. The mussels were outstanding and the truffle fries were extremely flavorful. Our server went the extra mile to help us celebrate a birthday and anniversary. You must try this place it will never disappoint.
