We visited Zinqué for our friends 40th birthday. We had a table outside on the patio. The view is beautiful and the ambience is excellent. The food was wonderful!! And our server was so great! Definitely would recommend

Very poor public safety compliance. Zero enforcement of facemasks for patrons waiting for tables or walking around the restaurant. Our server's mask didn't cover his nose.

Food is ok, nothing special. The quality of the sides is not great, the Gratin d’auphinois was a bit bland, ratatouille was over cooked and not very tomatoey. The salmon was good, the steak was juicy and tender and cooked medium rare as i wanted. Good slection of wine with affordable options. I’m french so i have some expectations when it comes to classic bistrot cuisine

Ate here twice while on vacation. If we lived here this would quickly become a local favorite for us. Tried lots of different apps & main courses. All were very good. Great experience!

Sat us at a table outside. They expanded the seating because of covid.. nice place. Little pricey but your paying for the location. But the table they sat us at had fries laying onThe ground around our feet. Nobody cleaned it. So we had to so we didnt step on them the whole time . No hard alchohol either just wine and beer

It was so great to get back to Zinque after the last couple months. They have reconfigured to maximize social distancing and we sat on the patio and felt part of it all but all at a safe distance from other diners. The service and food are always exceptional! Our favorite place in NB!

I recognize the reopening must be difficult, but we waited 40 minutes for our food with no updates. The only decent meal was the branzino. The burger was charred, the brussel sprouts undercooked (but charred), and the tomato avocado tartine had no flavor. The food was not worth the money. We would not go back or reccomend this restaurant.

Service has always been terrible. If you know this going in, then you'll be fine. Be prepared for long waits for water, food, wine, etc., and no coursing out of food. So appetizers will show up after entrées, wine will show up after appetizers, and it's always been this way. No excuse for re-opening. Takes a half hour to get the check... Just take a pass at this place.

Definitely would dine here again. They have delicious appetizers. My boyfriend and I came here and shared a bunch of food. I highly recommend that. We ordered the cheese board, cauliflower, lasagna, steak frites and they were all amazing. Keep in mind, the lasagna is not your traditional lasagna but it was still delicious (coming from my Italian boyfriend)

My friend and I went to ZinQue on her Duffy, we docked right in front of Zinque, we were seated right away. We sat around the fireplace and had the rice bowl, and a glass of wine, and we had a wonderful time. The food is delicious and atmosphere is very relaxing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant .

I reserved a week earlier for 6. Said it was a special occasion. The table available was very small for the food we ordered. The food choices are very limited and not filling. If we were to order more there would be no room on the table. As it was it was very cramped.
It got quite nosy later in the evening, like a high school hangout

Terribly slow service. Had to flag server down for anything and everything. Then to add insult to injury the restaurant pre-filled the tip at 20% (no wonder service was so bad).

This was for 4 adults and 2 kids (9 and 7 who eat like birds).

Definitely more of a hang out spot than a dinner spot. Extremely loud with amazing live music, so need a loud voice to keep up the conversation.

We were a party of 6, but the 20% tip was added to the bill already. The food took too long to deliver and the waiter never checked up on us. The food was delicious though.

We are regulars here and decided to take a dear friend from out of state here for dinner on Sunday January 12th 2020.
The lasagna was not edible and taken back . My husband and friend then ordered the roast chicken, then advised not available . Decided on a burger - less than average .
I felt embarrassed as we have never had an unacceptable meal here and always bring friends local and overseas here.

WE hope this was the last and only disappointing dining meal.

great food, great service, the ambiance you can't beat...should be a tad less expensive, however. But we were happy. The only complaint is we were freezing and asked the hostess to close the door, and she said she can't, the manager won't let her, which makes no sense at all.

Although we had at least four different people wait on us, they were all very accommodating, engaging and knowledgeable. We sat outside and had a great view of the harbor. Weather was cold, but the heaters worked well and it was very comfortable.
