    Booked with this restaurant on a whim, to celebrate my grandson graduating from Yale. Much impressed with the food and service. Waiters were very accommodating! The food was limited selection because of Yale graduation, but we all loved it!! I can definitely recommend this place!

    A mid $375 dinner for three. We booked here for a graduation dinner. The restaurant is usually closed on Mondays but they opened because of graduation weekend. The only offering available was a three course set menu at $95 per person before tax and tip. The layout for the table of three was strange as it was in the corner with a curved couch but we were each still sitting side by side. I get the impression there were no spare seats as the layout of the table didn't really make sense if there were spare seats. Didn't question it. The server was polite and friendly. We were given a small champagne toast in a large flute. A nice touch but honestly it made us laugh as the glass was maybe a tenth full. I've been given half full coupe glasses of prosecco before for birthdays and it was much appreciated. Always happy to accept something complimentary but visually it was amusing. The server came back to take our order and we tried to order our first and second course and asked if we could order our desert after dinner but was told that wouldn't be possible and full order had to be taken now. No issue if the restaurant was busy but it was 5.30pm and there were plenty of empty tables and considering the cost, it would have been nice to delay the desert order. While we were waiting for our mains, we were given a small salmon spread on a hard bread and some focaccia with a red dipping sauce. We had duck nachos, the humous and organic greens dish to start. All relatively tasty but none spectacular. Mains, two steaks cooked med rare and the Japanese chicken. Steaks cooked perfectly and all very good. This was the only course that I felt was value for money. Desert was two slices of chocolate coffee cake and the cookies. Cookies were nice but I would have served the cake with something besides coffee ice cream to contrast. Cheque was $375 w tax and tip and one glass of red wine. Definitely feel that the price was hugely inflated due to the graduation weekend.

    We were there for the special commencement menu, and every part of it was delightful starting out with a complementary glass of champagne. All the food was good there was an appetizer or salad then the entrée and then dessert all included and every bit of it was fantastic especially the service was so friendly and making the Reservation was so easy and accommodating to our needs. Thank you to Paul the manager and everyone at zinc.

    We went for Mother’s Day, I was upset we didn’t get the full menu but understood why it was a different menu for the day. That being said - there were 4 different choices for entrees. This was kind of disappointing.
