Dinner is always amazing there. I’ve never had a bad meal. Service is great.
Excellent food and service as always. The restaurant is on the smaller side than many restaurants in New Haven, however the restaurant has done a great job in putting up plexiglass barriers between tables and maximizing the space in a safe manner. An excellent choice for great food and service.
Great before show. Time for drinks, apps, and meal.
Great farm to table dishes and best restaurant in New Haven
My server (Sean, I think??) was super knowledgeable, welcoming, and patient!! Thank you for a great experience, and the food was AMAZING!!!! The pork belly was simply just divine and so so fulfilling, even for a small plate!! Thank you for making my solo dining experience comfortable and wonderful! I will definitely come back again. :)
Zinc is and has always been a favorite of mine. The food, service and setting are perfect every time, very consistent for many, many, many years.
Food was creative in presentation in content. And it tasted great. Quiet enough so we could talk. Large plastic “windows” between booths. Front desk very helpful. Overall experience was great, and we would return.
The food was not great at all considering it was restaurant week ! We expect much better for the price! Much better restaurants around!
Restaurant week tasting menu was fabulous. Duck leg confit was exceptional!
The food and our drinks were excellent! Really interesting menu that leaned into international influences. We started with a delicious cheese plate that featured some local cheese choices that were really flavorful.
Our waiter was excellent, offering us great suggestions and really accurate descriptions of the menu choices. We sat outside in a small patio space that was tucked behind the restaurant and it was the perfect date night experience.
We went and tried zinc for the first time . It was phenomenal. We had the pork and brisket. We had the cheeses and peanut butter moose . Drinks were great. Will be going back frequently !
Went there for restaurant week. The food was spectacular! Every dish unique and flavorful. We did modify our OpenTable reservation to add 2 people by actually calling, and that wasn’t noted when we arrived. So we had to wait 30 min to get our table. It was a busy night, though. Overall it was a great experience!
all around amazing food and ambiance. Something special in New Haven.
Thank you for such an enjoyable restaurant week experience. We had a lovely time and are so happy we could spend the night enjoying a unique, seasonal, delicious menu.
Our first time visiting. We will be back. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent! Thank you!
We ate on the patio behind the restaurant. The food and service were great as usual.
Great food, great ambience. Best restaurant week experience so far.
Fantastic food and service. Tasting menu was great and interesting specialty cocktails
Wonderful as ever Zinc does a great job. Very busy but good excellent, service attentive, and our back banquette possible fir serious discussion. Great job Zinc.
We have been going to Zinc for special occasions and for not-so-special occasions for many years. We have always been very well served and very well fed, and never disappointed. The friendly staff gives us helpful comments on the menu. Zinc is where we want to be, land we treasure it.
The staff was very nice and food was delicious.
The whole dinner was spaced perfectly. No rushing you in and out. Well done.
The food was terrific. It was among the noisiest visits we have had there. Many on the waitstaff seemed new and seemed to be attending to so many tables that the service was less attentive than in previous visits.
We will certainly return, though we might favor a weeknight rather than a weekend.
Best food I’ve had in a very long time. So much so I tried things I would have never tried on the menu. Cannot wait to come back!
Sean was amazing and very patient with my friend. Food was delicious, I wish I could eat here everyday!
DELICIOUS food and wonderful service—can’t wait to come back!
Food was in a word, spectacular. Can't believe we've lived in New Haven County for nearly 9 years and only now discovered this wonderful gem. We will certainly be returning.
Zinc has always been the best restaurant for me and my family. The food is delicious and well-sourced, and the service is of the finest. During these restrictive times, Zinc is the only restaurant we will visit.
Never disappointed when we visit zinc! Staff and food are both out of this world. Sean and Shamar are fantastic. Could not ask for a better experience/atmosphere. It was our 2nd anniversary and they made the experience that much more amazing. We don’t come often but we’re always excited when we do. I would highly recommend zinc!!
Best restaurant in New Haven!
Very good. Bartender was helpful in picking out wine. Tuna was great; plate a little overwhelmed with fried seaweed or kale(?). Very good potstickers/dumplings.
Love the bar! Fun to people watch; close to parking.
Server and the person helping us seat very very rude.
Food was good but brink OK
Outstanding as always. Zinc never skips a bear and NEVER shows its age. Always fresh, creative, delicious and welcoming.
I loved the ambience ! The food was eclectic but full of flavor ! Cooked well !!❤️
Came here for a second time for DPW meal no. 9. Food was as delicious as I remembered and the service was great. One of my top three favorite places in NHV.
All in all a lovely evening… The ambience is elegant soothing, the wine list was sufficient, and the food, while not flawless, was very very good.
We all felt that we were being rushed to order, to eat fast and leave. If you are in a hurry great. If you want to have a business dinner, find another place.
Amazing food and service. A cheese plate and yellowfin tuna are the best.
The best restaurant New Haven! It never disappoints; and I’m sure thatit never will.
Delicious creative food in a convivial elegant environment. Extraordinarily professional, knowledgeable and warm staff.
