Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro
Fantastic food at a cool venue. Our server was personable and the ambience was great. It was a little loud as it seemed like a couple corporate events were going on, but it was well worth it
Fabulous duck with lingonberries. Loved the Brussels sprouts. Petit Syrah was nice. Potato pierogi were an excellent side. Only one of had the beef and also enjoyed it.
Mostly excellent. One hiccup, the dessert was marginal.
Too much garlic for my taste. I had the chicken dish. Didn't get to finish it.
Love the changes for the fall menu. The duck breast is outstanding, as is the lamb.
Worth the trip; excellent food, great service, a bit too noisy though. They do a “Wine Flight” and if the wines happen to pair well with your food selection, it’s a nice treat. Oh yes, the lamb was excellent!
I expect to return on a regular basis.
Service is top notch. Bartender was very capable. Food was delicious.
One of our favorites. The food was good as was the service. Only negative—- Caesar salad had no anchovies.
Incredible food very creative and prepared expertly! fantastic service perfect ambiance!
Food and wine were delicious! We ate upstairs and then had an after dinner drink downstairs while listening to a live jazz band.
Great dinner experience at Zinc. The Chef happened to be near the hostess area. Greated with a warm hello and specials in the menu. Jesse was a fantastic server. Overall ambiance lovely and fun.
Very enjoyable meal, the food and service was excellent, and the ambiance was unique, rustic and classy.
I fail to see why there is not a 'catcher' checking each plate before serving. Lamb dish had a 'wilted' vegetable that was far closer to raw. Not difficult to see, surely?
A great place to meet, even if it's just wine, desserts, and conversation!
Loved the scallops and the cheese plate for desert.
Always loved the ambiance at Zinc. We’ve had appetizers at the bar and then one day we had brunch, but had never had dinner. Our experience was great, with an attentive waiter, and the food was scrumptious, with an immense value from the tasting menu. Chef Chris stop by to say hello at the table. Overall, it was a fantastic time, which is a great pleasure, especially since my husband is a French MasterChef. Looking forward to our next opportunity to have dinner there
The food was superb; we had dinner, the Aux Dog for a show and came back for dessert. Our server for dinner, Heather, was a delight. (Our server for dessert was as well, but I don't remember her name >.< )
I would fully recommend Zinc, it was a wonderful experience.
Outstanding food both in terms of quality and presentation. My guests were from Santa Fe and thought Zinc to be on par with the best restaurants in their city. My salmon was perfectly cooked. Solid wine list-lots to like about this local icon.
We found Zinc on Open Table and are very glad we did! It was a great experience. The restaurant is industrial/urban/Southwest-contemporary--a really cool ambiance!
Our waiter was terrific and told us all about the menu, since we were 1st-timers.
We had nice wine and a very delicious meal!
I haven't been to Zinc for over a year even though the restaurant is nearby. We were attending a play and thought it convenient. The food was terrific--I had an appetizer and salad. And the service was unobtrusive but thoughtful. I like a restaurant that has excellent food and is unpretentious. I do wish you would offer an imaginative vegetarian entree. That is why I ordered an appetizer and salad.
Brought some out of town guest and it’s was awesome! Our waiter was so helpful and kind. Definitely coming back in the future.
We had looked at their menu and it looked interesting so we thought we would try it. WE are glad we did. The waiter and service were outstanding and the food a delight. The place filled up and the noise level got higher so I would not say that it is a quiet romantic spot for dinner. But that did not spoil our evening. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Zinc is an all time Albuquerque favorite. We go there most of the time when we are in Albuquerque. The menu was brand new the night we were there but neither of us could resist the tried & true beef tenderloin with blue cheese mashed potatoes - absolutely delicious.
Very lovely birthday dinner. Small plates are great, and I still brought home food! The truffles were delicious.
Zinc is one of my top 3 places in Albuquerque. Great food and great service every time. And less expensive than lots of other places not as good.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We truly appreciate it!
our favorite dining out place for special occasions , always great
Thank you! We will see you soon!
The flank steak is to die for!
This was a real treat for us. The waitstaff could not have been kinder....we need a little extra help sometimes, as one of us is in a wheelchair. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Top notch from beginning to end.
Another great dinner at Zinc. We had the artichoke appetizer which was very tasty. I really enjoyed the angel hair pasta with shrimp scampi. Chopin Martini was great, with hand stuffed blue cheese olives.
I went here for my birthday. It was very enjoyable. Somewhat expensive but good quality food and service.
Lovely room, excellent service. Just a very nice neighborhood place that is worth a trip.
Excellent food at a venue that is casual and welcoming.
Food excellent; we will return. Service also way above average. A bit noisy
Nice atmosphere and service , but the food was very disappointing. The ceasar salad was
bland , the meat arrived not as ordered.
Hope they improve because it looks like a lot of money was put in the restaurant design.
While the noise level is high, particularly when the band starts playing in the basement, the food and service is excellent.
Casual dining out. Food was very delicious, great selection of wine. Service was outstanding.
Enjoyed immensely! Will definitely go back! Food and wait person were excellent!
I would like to go back for a drink, but since we ate there I would not recommend having dinner there.
My name is Knut Voggel. I am writting the review because I payed the bill! We have been a party of Four and every one was happy with her/his appetizer and entry. The service was professional and friendly. This was our third visit at Zinc Winebar and Grill and not our last one. Thank you.
Water refills stopped after bill paid, very warm inside. Food & service great until we paid.
