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!

Food wasn’t that good service was just okay and price was very high for mediocre food. Whole time I was wishing I had went to Le Petit Paris instead

The Tuna Tartare as an appetizer was fantastic and the Lasagna as my main was amazing. My friend had the Branzino and said it was delicious. Enjoy!!!!

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.

We sat on their patio, which was nice and quiet. Loved everything we ordered - tuna tartare, mussels, and steak frites. Service was great. Would love to go back and check out their brunch.

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 homeless is a problem. A homeless person literally walked into the be outdoor dining area up to tables next to us asking for money. HUGE TURN OFF!

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.

They brought the appetizers and main meal at the same time so our table was very crowded and we felt rushed to eat everything before it got cold. Also felt like they were trying to speed us up to use the table sooner. Food was great but the service was a little rough.

I reserved a table for 6 and called in early to make sure if I can fit in one more person. I was given an okay, but when I arrived at the time of the reservation, I was on hold for 30 minutes. Then finally, we were seated outside on the street without the fence. We kept bumping into homeless people during the dinner. For such poor ambience, the food was way too expensive. I come to Zinque often for light brunches or small gatherings, but it's definitely not ideal for big groups.

Best staff in DTLA. Everyone who works here is so nice and it makes your dining experience so wonderful I really really appreciate all of you. The drinks are amazing in the food is top notch too (definitely went through a period during the pandemic when it wasn’t up to par but as everything is open again…) Zinque has honestly been killing it.

Cute! Definitely get the ratatouille and the pan con tomate with proscuitto- they never miss. Awesome service, delicious food, and great bartending! The indoor seating is a little quieter than the outdoor, which is on the street. We love every staff member we interact with here, and will definitely be back.

Seemed like a nice place that wasn’t paying attention to the details. Bad bathrooms and just weird vibes that haven’t recovered since moving things around in COVID. Food was just fine.
