One of our favorite restaurants on the island. Huge shame that that was their last evening open. Now closed.
Bar Zin Bistro is a real Jewel. Our dinner and service was excellent. Don’t pass on this fine establishment.
Great food and service as always.
A great restaurant for a dinner for two or a group of 8. Nice wine list and dinner selections on the menu.
Service was excellent
Waiter Dylan was fantastic
food was plentiful
looking forward to return
Nice menu good selection shrimp and watermelon salad was delicious and different. Swordfish was superb seafood pot pie was only good the lobster was overcooked. Presentation nice but hard to eat that way. Needed to put it on a plate. No big deal. Chocolate bomb was delicious One of our favorite restaurants when in town
We experienced a great lunch here.
We both had salads topped with a wonderful piece of grilled salmon.
we love the burgers, but anything we've eaten hasn't disappointed...delish and great quality food
Monday night dinner with friends visiting from Tampa.
We started with a nice bottle of Angelina Pinot Noir to go along with the French country salad and a serving of the Irish cheddar porter cheese that was on the evening’s charcuterie plate.
My wife’s seafood pot pie was amazing and my flounder entree was equally as good.
Our friends loved their entrees, especially the hanger steak and its accompanying sauce.
Wonderful warm and personable service from Paula and we appreciated the manager, Christina, stopping by to introduce herself.
We finished the evening with their tremendous tuxedo chocolate dome cake. Super evening! Look forward to our next visit soon.
Weeknight Wednesday date night started with a nice bottle of Angelina Pinot Noir from Sonoma that was recommended by our warm and friendly server, Lyndsey.
The wine paired well with the Irish cheddar porter cheese from the charcuterie offerings for the evening along with the country salad.
The espresso hanger steak was cooked perfectly...but arrived semi cold. The steak and the au gratin potatoes would have tasted much better had they been warmer.
Likewise the swordfish romesco was flavorful but it and the accompanying potatoes and green beans were cold.
Given the kitchen issues with the entrees we decided to skip dessert.
Hopefully dinner will be better on our next visit as the ambiance is very nice and the menu has a variety of choices.
Stayed at the Omni and this place is close by. Both my husband and I had a fish dish and it was fabulous . Server was super friendly and gave us a great recommendation for breakfast the next day.
food was good, very creative. Deeply overpriced for what you got.
Fabulous Friday night dinner on their porch with wonderful, warm friendly service from Anastasia.
It was our first time dining here and we were thoroughly impressed.
The Brie on the charcuterie was so good and the greens on the artisan salad were fresh and tasty.
My wife’s steak was cooked perfectly and my fish was equally as flavorful.
Nice selection of wines by bottle!
Look forward to dining here again soon and often!
As always amazing service, beautiful evening, sat on the patio. We normally love the food here but they were definitely off that night. The flounder meniuere was crispy but flavorless. It sat on a bed of cannelloni beans that tasted like they had just come out of a can off a grocery shelf. The few mussels in the sauce had little flavor. My husband ordered the kobi waygu burger medium rare and it Came out very well done. We sent it back and it was perfect when it arrived but it took over 30 minutes and I was done eating as much I cared to eat by then not to mention my food was cold by then. So I sat there while he ate. All in all Not the typical wonderful food we are used to at this restaurant so I’m hoping they don’t have a new chef; that he was just having a bad night.
We had the west coast oysters which were a special that evening and they were the best we’ve ever had! Everything was outstanding as usual. Karen
Service is always prompt and friendly. Outside seating during the pandemic is a big plus.
Dinner portions are huge.....I miss the small plates menu that was offered before the restaurants closed. Specials are usually good and interesting.
This was my first lunch at Bar Zin. Gorgeous day. Great companion. We ate semi-shaded on the patio and enjoyed it all.
fish and chips....fish was dry and very fishy tasting. Overpriced, especially considering I ate half the fries, which were good and picked at the fish.
Quality of food had always been very good here, but this meal was a huge disappointment.
Outdoor seating with ambiance and spaced nicely for this trying time. Food was excellent! Server was a little stressed/distracted being the only one.
Fabulous dinner, sitting outside on their patio, with no rush. Ahi tuna was excellent and the portion was huge....spouse felt the same about espresso steak! So nice to breathe easy, as the tables were spread apart, and enjoy a lovely evening. Our server gave us great recommendations and made the night even better! Highly recommend.
One of our top choices for lunch on Amelia Island. Always an intriguing daily special, and very pleasant wine list.
We just moved to Fernandina Beach from Illinois. We love local restaurants vs the chain. We found Bar Zin Bistro Wine Bar to be an adorable place to enjoy fresh food, great wine selection, atmosphere. Definitely a place we will visit again.
This was our first visit to Amelia Island, and we were lucky to discover Bar Zin! We gave it a try for lunch and returned for dinner. Amazing service and food is simply outstanding, creative and delicious!
We ordered hangar steak x 3.
meat was barely lukewarm. Waitress was absent. I will not be going back again nor will the other 4 people with me!
Wonderful experience, as always! Bar Zin is our go-to restaurant. We love the ambiance. The food is always marvelous! And the service is superb.
Menu choices were limited due to COVID-19. Food quality and service were outstanding as usual. Thank You Bar Zin
The swordfish was so tender and moist it melted in your mouth. The rolls were sweet, fresh, and yummy. The service by the staff was outstanding.
Cold Soup, Undercooked Broccoli as well as stale, served Hangar steak with a butter knife??
Two visits in 4 days....outstanding both times.
Looking forward to next visit.
Wonderful burger and fries!
Lovely dinner on the patio. Delicious food and great service.
Awesome Service and even better food
The food was delicious!
Another restaurant we had made a reservation at was closed due to Covid and I’m so glad as we had a great experience and the food was excellent at Bar Zin!
Great food! Great atmosphere! Would recommend to a friend!
Very nice evening to share a family meal. We sat out on the patio and had great food and service.
Fabulous! Amazing service and fantastic food. One of our favorites when we visit the island. We always want to go more than once.
Excellent service and food. Social distancing was followed and cleanliness was evident.
The waiter was great. Good recommendations and truly knowledgeable about menu
