    My wife’s salmon was fine. I tried the Thai special soup and it was tasty - well prepared. However my supposed Tuna Nicoise tartine was rather strange. The components were stacked up on top of a small thick cut circular piece of toasted brioche bread. Not at all like a typical tartine presentation and the sweetness of the brioche did not work well vs the other ingredients. The chef was trying too hard to produce something visually impressive vs focusing on the taste of the dish. Better to just stick to the basics and execute well…

    We had an excellent meal with cocktails before. The calamari appetizer was delicious and the dipping sauce very good. One of us had salmon another had the duck and another the tenderloin . All were excellent and cooked just the way we ordered. . Our server did a great job. My only recommendation would be to have a printed menu detailing what bourbon and scotch were available. Our waitress had to read the list, and I was looking for one particular one and not paying attention to all the others. When she was done, my scotch was not on the list and she had to re-read them.

    I had a delightful lunch experience at Cafe Zinc, where Alyson served us. Her attentive and friendly approach added to the overall positive atmosphere. The menu offered a diverse range of delicious options, and the presentation of dishes was impeccable. The ambiance was cozy, making it a great spot for a casual lunch outing. Alyson's excellent service made the dining experience memorable, and I would gladly return for another enjoyable meal.

    We enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve dinner in a dining pod! The food, service, and ambiance were all 5 star. I had tried to reserve a dining pod months ahead but there were none available for Christmas Eve. When our dining reservation was confirmed I left a message asking to be contacted if a dining pod became available. One did and we were called to be asked if we would like it…the opening was for an hour later than our indoor reservation. It worked out perfectly. The adults enjoyed a drink in the bar and the teenage boys used the curling “ice” which included ingredients for make your own s’mores over a fire pit and a $20 food/drink voucher. It was a great evening!

    Food and service are good quality, but not worth the premium prices that are charged. Have typically only gone there on special occasions when someone else was paying. I did/do make a decent living, but it’s on the upper end of what I’d pay for a meal.
