Great food and great drinks, but slow service. Kitchen took so long for our dessert that we had to cancel it. Easy parking on the corner of Olympic and Broadway.

Wasn’t sure who are actual server ever was. We had great service at first then as it got a little busier felt like we were forgotten about . Our main courses didn’t come out at same time. Had to flag down to order dessert then it took a really long time had to flag down again to ask for check them out dessert was brought with the check .

Overall great food but felt a little slighted once the bigger parties arrived.

DTLA location. The restaurant hits all the negatives: ambience, service, food, location, parking, bare table/hard chairs, noisy, bad 'music' and cheap/flimsy paper napkins.
I called the restaurant the day before and they said they did not offer valet parking but there were lots on either side at $8 flat fee. Turns out that is the day rate; after 4:00 PM it is an outrageous $20.
Mediocre flatbreads, pate and steak. Branzino is good but arrives whole [with the head], no implements and no waiter to debone it. Inexcusable!
$30 corkage which is high for the quality of the food.

The staff service was marginal. Food was delicious, the wine was nice. A 20% tip was added to my check without my knowledge but was pointed out, we were a party of two.

A hip dining spot. Cold indoor interior, especially in winter. Sterile without any fabric textiles, no cloth napkins, tablecloths,rugs nothing to warm up room but few upholstered chairs- industrial decor- cold and loud and dimly lit. Nice menu options, food was good, presentation nice. But cold shortly after served, and cold climate inside didn’t help. Service was great! Personnel wonderful. Good for hipster/college/20’s -30’s age group.

Zinque has really good French bistro food without the expensive price tag. This is a wonderful neighborhood bistro perfect as a regular hangout, for parties, al fresco dining and for special occasions. We sat outside and had some unwelcome attention and behavior from a colorful character and security took good and immediate care of us. Steak Frites cooked to perfection!

We ate outside. It is noisy but in a NYC you can easily ignore it kind of way. Food was fabulous for all 4 of us. Service was slow and you had to ask for things that they should have been on top of. But would definitely go again.

Opted to sit at the bar, and everything was perfect.
Two great bartenders who were super on top of it. One minor thing was the soda machine was not working but they were able to make alternative drinks.

Our waitress was great, really sweet and attentive! Food was good and their spicy tequila drink is very spicy!!

One thing we didn’t like is a woman had her dog with her at the bar and let him off his leash several times. The dog was allowed to come to our table for a while and we had to ask the owner to get him. He was a huge bull dog…

The drinks were delicious but the food was mediocre (except for the fries which were excellent), and the service wasn't great either. We got a bunch of veggie and sharing and plates for the table, including the flatbread. Maybe the mains are better...but I'm in no hurry to return.

My waitress, a blonde Asian woman, recommended a number of dishes.
I asked her if that was too much food for just two people, and she said she didn’t think so. I have a good appetite, but we had enough food for four people. She was absent for most of the meal, but when she brought the check she had a mobile payment tablet where she added 20% as a tip, before I could even do anything. I was on a first date so I didn’t want to look cheap so I went along with it. I felt like I had my pocket picked. The restaurant owners don’t seem to care, as I’ve seen a number of bad reviews based on waiters who are grifters or downright rude, and a manager who was literally forcing people to leave their tables at closing time just because he wanted to go home. What a dump!

First and last experience at Zinque DTLA. Service was truly poor. Felt like we were doing them a disservice by coming in to be honest. Both waitresses had chips on their shoulders and did little to nothing to make us feel welcome or provide any kind of experience at all. Food was mediocre at best. Pretty disappointing as I had high hopes for this place.
