Zinc is consistently good and they offer a fixed price tasting menu that is one of the best deals in town particularly when you consider how good the food is and the choices they offer on their tasting menu
Been at Zinc's several times. One of my "go to" places when in Albuquerque. Good wine list and a good variety of Bourbons( ask what else they may have- not all on the menu). The food is always very good. The specials are creative. You will not go wrong having a meal here.
Excellent food, service and ambiance.
This was my 3rd time dining at Zinc, so obviously I like it. We had brunch prior to attending a local theater production and it was wonderful. They can even make bacon and eggs taste great. We will definitely go back.
We enjoyed our meals for restaurant week. It was noisy but most often times it is. The wine was very good. We hadn't been there is quite a while. The noise is a bit much for us.
AMAZING service & food as always. This is the place to go on a date or anniversary. Thank you ZInc!!
Was able to schedule a reservation on short notice. Not a large menu, but a great variety. Ahi tuna and beef tenderloin had excellent flavor, but both arrived undercooked.
Amazing restaurant hands down!!!!👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Delicious, another new seasonal innovative menu. I had eggs Benedict with a salmon patty on one side and braised beef on the other. My friends enjoyed a grilled chicken salad and bacon and eggs. We also enjoyed apple upside down cake. Price, our server was exceptional.
This was our first time eating at Zinc. It is a great restaurant with wonderful food. Great wine list as well. Our server was very friendly and very professional.
We really enjoyed our evening and would go back again the next time we are in Albuquerque.
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.
Great brunch. Excellent food and atmosphere.
We ordered off the 3 course menu and it was a generous delicious portion on all 3! Friendly staff, waiter was great and beautiful restaurant.
Lovely date night dinner. Excellent bottle of wine and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing appetizers, salad, entre and dessert,
Our waitress Allegra was exceptional. She was attentive and provided great suggestions on menu options and pairings.
Great food and ambiance, will be back soon.
We love Zinc, and once again it did not disappoint. We stop in Albuquerque enroute to Phoenix, and always look forward to an evening here. I ordered the beef bourgione ravioli and my husband ordered the lamb with gnocchi. We got the smaller portion and it was plenty of food. Both were wonderful. I’d also recommend the smoked trout appetizer. Yum!
The service is always wonderful and for extra fun, try eating at the bar by the kitchen and enjoy a view of a fine tuned kitchen.
Great creative high quality food with good sized portions.
Everything was very good and I’m glad we chose to dine there.
Food was great as always, only issue was (no fault to the management) a very loud group was seated nearby which made most conversation difficult. The upper level is generally a little quieter and will be the plan next time.
The food was really good. The service was fantastic. I really enjoyed my visit.
We went to Zinc for a birthday dinner. The staff was excellent -- friendly and helpful, yet professional. Our waiter provided great wine recommendations, after asking a few questions to understand what we were looking for. The food and wine were excellent. The dessert menu looked wonderful, but we had cake waiting at home, so passed on those.
A varied brunch menu with vegetarian options. Excellent coffee!
As always, Zinc surpassed our expectations for a fantastic dinner on New Year's Eve. Great menu, food and service, all fantastic. This is the 3rd year in a row we've chosen to dine at Zinc for our New Year's Eve special dinner.
A wonderful New Years Eve meal for our group of 7. The duck confit eggrolls were the star of the show but all meals were delicious and the service was impeccable.
As always, the restaurant lived up to expectations. Great food, Great atmosphere and Great service. We've been fortunate to have Brian as our server the last 3 times we've dined at Zinc. He's always knowledgeable, pleasant and great at what he does. We'll continue to dine at Zinc for most of our special occasions!
