Bar Zin Bistro Wine Bar

Wonderfully creative menu and lively and friendly bar scene make for a lovely evening out.
Great food and service, as always.
We had a wonderful time. The wine list was very good and the staff was accommodating and knowledgeable.
Noise level was too high. I had trouble hearing some in our group. Food was very good. We enjoy the specials
Creative movement enu options, good wine selection
New menu is excellent.
The only reason for a less than 5-star review is the stark lighting in the back room. We dined in the front room the first time we went, and, in contrast, its lighting is pleasantly more indirect.
We've had a great meal with delightful service every trip to Bar Zin. The menu should appeal to everyone, although one member of our group this trip, who won't eat seafood or anything that his mother didn't serve him in the 50s, labeled the choices weird. I count that as a testament to the wonderful creativity of the chef.
In town for conference and wanted something away from where we were staying. This ended up being a great choice. Excellent food, friendly service, and good wine. Dessert wasn’t the best but no other issues.
Food was very good.
Excellent meal. Salmon mahi mahi and shrimp the best meal we have had in a long time
Great meal with great friends!! Too bad about the very loud table across from us. Made conversation difficult. Who knew someone could laugh so loud!!
I recently took a friend who I have not seen in 45 years to Bar Zin. I know the food is always spectacular. Bar Zin did not disappoint me. My friend enjoyed what he described as the best salmon he had ever eaten. I ordered my usual, the French Country Salad with chicken. The salad has great flavor and the dinner portion gives me just enough for lunch the next day. The tables at Bar Zin are not on top of each other making conversation easy. This is a place I go to often and recommend highly!
We love Bar Zin and go here frequently for lunch & dinner. We tend to enjoy the meals at lunch more and find the choices more interesting than the dinner selections.
We were vacationing in Amelia Island for a few days and Bar Zin Bistro was the best restaurant we ate at. The food, atmosphere, service were all phenomenal! We can't say enough good things about the place. We ordered and tried the appetizer ribs and fried green tomatoes. The ribs were tender and some of the best ribs we ever had at a restaurant (and we are from the south and used to good ribs!). For dinner entrees, we had the seafood pot pie and my husband had the scallop with pork belly over risotto. They both were excellent! Honestly, the risotto was the best we have ever had! There were other menu selections we would have loved to come back and tried had we been in town another day. We will definitely be back!
went before going to jazz show. The server was charming, the food was great and as always we were totally pleased
Very elegant dining--delicious food and excellent service.
Great dining experience for our anniversary dinner. Food and atmosphere were wonderful and Natalie was an incredible server. She turned what could have been an ordinary dinner into a very special evening!!!
Great spot on Amelia Island. Never disappoints. We’ll be back!
New menu items ...very nice new choices
The fried chicken is good.
The restaurant is on the small side but the food is big in flavor. We were there on a Thursday night but they still had a crowd. I can see if the dining room was full it would be loud, but what place isn't these days. Started with oysters which were fresh. Hubby had the scallops and I had snapper. Both dishes were cooked wonderfully. The staff was very friendly without being creepy. Highly recommend
Loved the food and had excellent service. Will return soon.
Love coming back to this local Ameli island casual dining location. Great wine, and lite food.
Love Barzin. Tim, the owner, is a friendly & gracious host. Not sure he actually remembers us, as we are only in the island a few times a year. But he always makes us feel like he does, which is awesome. Wait staff was also friendly and attentive. We ordered the halibut special which was very mild and tasty but perhaps a little over cooked. Beet soup was very unique and refreshing, fried green tomatoes were absolutely delicious. Wine list is always as winner here too. We chose to eat inside because of the steamy weather, but dining Al fresco is very nice at Barzin. However, the interior decor is very comfortable and casually elegant as well ... Just a little noisy because everyone is enjoying the experience. Whether you're a local, or just visiting beautiful Amelia Island, Barzin should be on your dining short list!
I understand there is a new chef. She is wonderful!
We had a great time. Our waitress, Addison was adorable and added to the enjoyment of dinner. The food was prepared perfectly and the restaurant offered new and different menu items. I can’t wait to go back!
Excellent food and service. Great complex tastes on many menu selections. Very good wine list.
Amazing food and amazing service!! The scallops were phenomenal!
Fabulous food great service. Met the owners. Great hospitality !
Always a good time at Bar Zin. We usually take out of towners here as always a sure thing. Service usually great. Just off this time.
Bar Zin consistently has wonderful food and great service! We have enjoyed this restaurant every time we have gone.
BarZin always has good food. Love sitting in the bar area.
Excellent entre. Good friendly service. Food served was way better than my cooking and my husband and I are good cooks.
What can I say about Bar Zin... it’s amazing, fabulous, phenomenal, extraordinary: there is not enough adjectives in the English language to describe this restaurant. It’s located off First Coast Hwy in the Palmetto Walk Village . The staff, ( Montana, Mindy & Toni to name a few), food, drinks, even the customer are wonderful. It’s a fun, upbeat, friendly, family atmosphere. There intentions is to use local farmers, products and seafood to creat a farm-to-table menu. It’s a neighborhood atmosphere where “everyone knows your name” and is welcomed.
Make the last bite of the day...the best bite of the day
This excellent restaurant never fails to meet all of our expectations. The presentation is extraordinary. The service is exceptional. The atmosphere is quiet and engaging. We have been customers for many years and can vouch for the consistency of excellence at this fine restaurant.
We dine at Bar-Zin every year when we go to Amelia Island. The food is amazing and guaranteed to be the best you will find! An exceptional spot on the island.
Outstanding menu. Good wine list. Preparation is flawless
A consistently excellent place for dinner. Excellent staff familiar with wines and menu. Natalie did a great job!
Best restaurant on island. Eat there every time I come here. Which is 3-5 times a year. My favorite restaurant since Snug Harbor. Which means I’ve been coming here 30+ years
This was our first time here. We found it on Opentable the first night we arrived on Amelia Island. We had a wonderful server named Natalie who was informative and friendly. She has been at the restaurant for three years. We enjoyed it so much we went back a second time and requested her.
