Always a great experience!
We had tickets for the Shubert Theater that evening and they were very attentive and made sure we got out on time without rushing us. Everything we ordered was terrific.
Zinc is reliably terrific! We have been going there from the beginning- unfortunately not so much in the last 5 years or so- Celebrated many occasions as well as Saturday night out dinners with friends. Thrilled to see the Chicken with Japanese Black Rice still on the menu as well as the duck nachos. Harder and harder to have restaurants that are independent and not owned by big groups. We will be back soon.
Our server, Rachel was an absolutely delight. She was very attentive and nice. I would definitely recommend going to zinc and we will be returning soon.
Thanks so much !
Love the atmosphere. The drink menu is great and the food is always fantastic. The staff was attentive and we had everything we could possibly need
Great innovative dishes, good wine list and staff were very helpful.
Food wasn’t great kind of bland. The waiter was in a rush, didn’t make the experience relaxing, he totally forgot to take the order from one of our guests that was sitting with us and there e were only 4 of us.
From the moment we entered this well designed space we were dazzled. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable; the food was extraordinary. The female chef (a James Beard winner) has created an extraordinary menu from the craft cocktails to an exquisite array of appetizers (Brussel sprouts and duck tacos were outstanding) and the perhaps the best rare tuna ever .. prepared with a expertly executed egg roll on the side and flash fried greens.
This is a restuarant not to be missed. We will return, often. Thank you Zinc for the little Wednesday night vacation!
We went for nye. Little disappointed food was just good, last time we went it was amazing
My husband and I dined at Zinc for New Year’s Eve. Everything was delicious, Zinc never disappoints.
We had a very nice dining experience. The food and drinks were delicious. Our server went up and above to accommodate our party as one member had a personal issue to quickly take care of and he held off our dinner so we could still all eat together. That was greatly apprecIated.
The Zinc team hands down is the team to beat in New Haven.
Excellent food creatively prepared. Outstanding service by a well-trained, friendly, helpful , knowledgeable , and accommodating wait staff.
Always a memorable dinning experience. Zinc is one of my favorite restaurants in Ct, and I highly recommend it without reservation.
Always great food and vibe
Absolutely fantastic service, atmosphere and food. Couldn't have asked for a better meal or time at Zinc. Will definitely return and recommend.
Great Resturant Great Food and Great service.
Enjoyable experience. Food was very tasty. Thank you
Nice staff, fun cocktails including daily special. Food was delicious-duck nachos, Brussels sprouts, roasted pork belly (superb) for starters. Reasonable portions. Entrees all great—special ravioli, Vietnamese chicken, tuna all inventive yet classic. The desserts were a disappointment but otherwise super good, we highly recommend.
All staff were friendly and helpful
Creative, modern cuisine that I would rate as among the best in New Haven. Our server Rachel was attentive and provided great recommendations. I’d highly recommend Zinc.
Our meal was excellent and made even better with the excellent attention and recommendations from our server. We look forward to going to ZINC again when in town and will recommend to all of our friends.
Zinc offers the best cuisine in town - it offers consistently superb food, outstanding service, a lively atmosphere, with an unparalleled chef and sommelier.
One of the finest restaurants in Connecticut. Interesting and creative menu, impeccable service by a well-trained, friendly and professional staff, and a wonderful setting. The staff is exceptionally accommodating on choice of table and food preparation as well as knowledgable on suggested wine selections.
Zinc if my favorite restaurant in Connecticut, and I highly recommend it without reservation.
Amazing!! Very picky foodies here and the food was outstanding
As always, interesting and surprising choices, attentive not intrusive service, beautifully prepared and seasoned dishes. A pleasure, start to finish.
Great service! Ambience! Good Menu!
Fun cocktails! Good wine list
Fabulous food and service - always consistently great!
Food wasn't great. Entrees were overcooked, drinks were mediocre. Simply not worth the hassle especially if you aren't already in New Haven.
One of our favorite restaurants in the state. Everything is delicious. Never have left disappointed.
Took my husband here for his birthday and we had a great time. Good food and fantastic service.
We chose Zinc to celebrate our anniversary this year. The food was fabulous! The service was excellent. We really enjoyed our experience.
Food was the best we’ve had in a long time. The Brussels sprouts small plate and the salmon entree were especially good. The vibe is hip, but unpretentious with a nice mix of people. A really great evening out!
Zinc was in top form Saturday night. The fennel and white bean soup was velvety and full of flavor, the butternut squash and barramundi were exceptional.
Dessert did not disappoint. We shared the peanut butter and dark chocolate mousse. The chocolate mousse was not too sweet with a wonderful chocolate flavor and the peanut butter mousse layer was subtle and a wonderful complement to the chocolate.
I rediscovered this restaurant after not having been in over 10 years. I have been there twice in the past month. The menu is fantastic, the service sublime and atmosphere elegant.
Excellent everything! Food, Service, and atmosphere, We will definitely be back
its very hard to find a place that has exquisite service and amazing drinks and food all in one place, zinc has all three and its very clean and well run, the menu is pleasing for my vegetarian family members and has excellent carnivore selections as well, all the portions are large and we are always satisfied, I feel its as close to a New York feel that you can get in new haven
Incredible food, great service. The restaurant was very accommodating to making our night special.
Zinc is our "go to" restaurant within walking distance of our abode... always a delicious meal and excellent service. Most staff are long time employees who show professionalism in every way, a rare benefit these days.
Excellent experience. Service was exceptional. My fiancé has celiac and cannot eat gluten. Our server went above and beyond to tend to her needs.
Outstanding in every way
