We had not been to Bar Zin before despite being regular visitors to Fernandina Beach. Excellent fare and service by Toni. Glad to have found it!

Well prepared food in a modest dining atmosphere. A little noisy but tolerable. We ordered scallops and braised pork hock from the entree menu, forgoing apps and salad as the entree prices are high. Our entree were well prepared, but accompanied only by a serving of a starch (risotto). Again, well prepared, but not very good value. There are better choices on Amelia.

I didn’t know that it was only beer and wine, but once we got settled into our table it was an amazing night. Wine list is not too pricey but done great options; food is excellent and service was super too. A great spot and I’ll be back.

Dinner at Bar Zin was better than ever! To start with, our server, Lyndsey, was so pleasant and efficient! We were participating in Restaurant Week and the selections were perfect for both me as well as my husband, who has a gluten allergy. We each had a glass of wine, followed by excellent appetizers, entrees and desserts. My husband raved about his flounder entree and said it was one of the best he has ever had. My steak frites was cooked to perfection, as hanger steak should be, quite rare and delicious. We both ordered decaf cappuccinos to accompany our desserts. The meals was definitely a memorable one!

Enjoyed our date night during Restaurant Week '19, both had steak frites from the prix fixe menu, the frites were more mundane than we anticipated leaving us kinda disappointed but appetizers and desserts were home runs. Overall nice dinner in pleasant atmosphere.

Absolutely. It is one of the more dependable dining spots in our area. My comment on noise level is I am hearing Impaired and My hearing aids pick up a lot of extraneous table conversation and probably would not bother Most patrons. It certainly would not inhibit our returning again and again.....WJS

We went during restaurant week, which is usually a mistake. But we had a wonderful time. Food was great, I had the hangar steak, himself the stuffed flounder. The salad tasted as good as it looked and it was compliments of the house as there was a minor issue with one of the appetizers. An issue we hadn’t even noticed. The service was great but not intrusive. It’s really a lovely place on the south end of Amelia island. Worth the drive if you’re in JAX or elsewhere. I highly recommend you check it out.

Our meals at Bar Zin have been very good. They are reasonably priced and have a good combination of flavors. Special house salad with pears was excellent. Entrees were very good, but my wife is sensitive to salt application and felt her flounder was a bit too salty. My shrimp and crawfish entree was delicious,. The dessert, a creme brûlée was fantastic and wines were very good, and I appreciate our waiter steering me toward a more hearty pinot noir.

I've eaten at Bar Zin many times and I always enjoy my meal. I love their roast beet salad with added chicken. You can add shrimp or oysters too. The fried green tomato trio is great. My husband really likes their burgers and truffle fries.
