    Updated menu is terrific. My wife loved the new bulgogi eggs benedict. My traditional eggs benedict eggs were perfectly poached. Our server Mary was knowledgeable and attentive.

    Brunch at Zinc was pleasant but I was disappointed that their more breakfast oriented menu was no longer available at 11:20am on a Sunday. Apparently it changes over from breakfast to lunch at 11am. It would be nice if a more brunch oriented menu could be offered at the weekend without a late morning changeover. The food I had was fine but I would have much preferred to have a breakfast skillet or similar. In fairness there were three breakfast offerings available as specials but they were not quite what I was looking for. Service was prompt and friendly. The environment sitting outside is very pleasant.

    Our dinner was very good overall except for the pan seared ribeye steak. It was literally three quarters inedible, fat and gristle. You can say ribeyes are marbled but to pay for one quarter of a steak is ridiculous. It was very gross.

    Very enjoyable sitting outside. Comfortable and not loud. Service was nice but slow and not very attentive. It was not at all crowded. Should I really have to ask for a water glass refill? We had to ask for coffee and dessert! A better variety of dinner music would be welcome. There is so much good, classy, easy listening, background dinner music available. The 3 piece jazz lounge band with the bass saxophone up and down the scales gets real old after 15 minutes. Mix it up a little please! Overall though we had a nice time.

    The restaurant is beautiful. The staff was friendly and the service was good. But every time we eat there we freeze because they keep the restaurant so cold so if you go be sure to layer up.

    It's always nice to sit out side and enjoy a meal at Cafe Zinc. The food was great, service wonderful, and the best outdoor seating downtown. It was noisy but with a party of six women nearby not unexpected. We were all enjoying the beautiful day.

    The service as usual was outstanding. The food was excellent, and the ambiance was very good. The only negative is that you can sometimes hear the conversation of the table next to you. The restaurant cannot control the volume of the other guests, so that is not a knock on the restaurant. Enjoyed our breakfast there.
