Best breakfast! Omelette and grits croquet were to die. Yummmm. No better restaurant
Everything went according to plan. The food was terrific, service great.
Excellent service. Excellent cocktails and wine. Nice atmosphere. Food was not superb unfortunately — most dishes were just ok, but one main dish was nearly inedible. We were there on a Monday night, so maybe it was an off night for the restaurant since so many reviews are rave.
We went for Sunday brunch. The service was outstanding and the men options were good, although they didn’t match the online menu and they don’t have a ‘natively’ gluten free option on the menu. We sat upstairs and had a great view of the kitchen which was fun. They also had a live musician that was very pleasant and not so loud that it intruded on our conversation.
I felt I had to keep asking for water. We have a bottle of champagne (server only poured first glass) then we ordered a bottle of wine same thing. I thought it was odd. Eating out regularly had never had that happen.
Excellent for wine
Great staff from the moment we walked in with the hosts, to our server approaching our table quickly. Everybody was friendly and professional. Drinks, appetizers, and main dishes were all timed perfectly. Food was really good. This was a wonderful start to our evening that ended with a concert at Popejoy Hall.
We had a terrific time. It was a date night for me and my husband and we loved sitting across from each other and enjoying fine cocktails, delicious food and friendly, professional service. We're from Santa Fe, so there are many good restaurants to choose from, but we were going to a concert in ABQ and wanted to eat there instead.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere. It's a great bar with a great restaurant.
It was a great choice for Valentine’s Day! The only downside was getting a tucked away corner table that was right above the band in the basement. Other than that, an amazing date night!!
My family and ate at Zinc for Valentine’s dinner. We were seated by a door that said “utility closet” or something like that. Not the ambiance we wanted. My meat (filet mignon with mole’ sauce) was tasty, tender and nicely prepared. The twice baked potatoe was almost flavorless. My daughter has a vegetarian relleno which was uninspired and my husband and other daughter ate a chicken and prosciutto dish that neither liked a great deal. We’ve had breakfast/brunch at Zinc and it was very tasty. This dinner...not so much. The server was so busy he didn’t respond when we told him we didn’t need anymore water and just absent mindedly filled our glasses. It may have just been that the restaurant was very busy, but even then, I’d like the food to be scrumptious. Won’t be returning for dinner.
Zinc was a great spot for friends to enjoy dinner. The wine was wonderful. Food was spectacular. Overall, a great spot.
As always our dinner at Zinc was fantastic! The scallops are amazing the plate presentation beautiful and I love being able to choose a small portion or the regular. Thanks Zinc for another excellent meal!
The entrees were perfectly done. We had beef bourguignon ravioli and a squash stuffed relleno with quinoa and kale. I can think of restaurants here in ABQ who have done as well, but none who have done better. The ravioli were delicious and the chefs somehow worked some magic to get the relleno really crunchy on the outside, a triumph of texture and taste. I really liked the pairing of cheese and fruit with the salad I ordered as well. Nice work, Zinc, thank you for the top-notch dinner experience.
We sat on a loft overlooking the dining room and food prep area. The view was great. Overall, the atmosphere was wonderful, the service was excellent, and the food was good. The prix fixe menu of three courses is a good value. Also a lot to eat. If you are dining as a couple, having one person order the prix fixe with appetizer and dessert and the other ordering a plate only is a good idea. You can share the app and dessert. We did a French wine flight which was great. My wife had beef tenderloin which was great. I had chicken paillard which was, sadly, average. I wouldn't recommend it.
