    If you are wanting a quiet dinner with linens & nice furnishings this is NOT the place to go. Not too many “business attired” guests( maybe they didn’t see a dress code or don’t care about those sorts of refinements. Felt like we were eating at a cafeteria but service was good, food was good but limited, & the bay view is nice…….had to ask our server to repeat what she was saying twice because of the noise. Probably won’t go back but would recommend it to party people!!!!!!!

    This is a great little restaurant located in a very boogey shopping street. It sits on the pier , so you have a lovely view of the slips and the water. Despite the fact that’s it’s in a stellar location, the food is affordable and tasty (unlike other waterfront establishments). The options are more of a brasserie with steak frites and coq au vin. We were seated outside on the pier. I didn’t know ahead of time that they were dog friendly, otherwise my pup could have also enjoyed the cool breeze and delightful atmosphere. This is an easy recommend for decent, affordable food in Newport.

    Had a delicious meal outside on the patio. The ambiance, service and quality of food were all spectacular. We shared the ratatouille, green lasagna and le bowl with frittata. So happy with our selections. We would definitely go back to dine again!

    My entire meal was delicious. Two members of my party felt their starter was excellent but their entre was only ok. Desert was amazing - chocolate mousse is one of the best I've had. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect. The noise level was a bit high.

    First time dining a Zinque and it was a real pleasure. Came here to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent, I had the steak and frites and my husband, whose a big burger fan, ordered the burger. We finished the meal with the flourless chocolate cake. Everything was very delicious and not expensive for what we got. The restaurant itself has great atmosphere, lots of heaters to keep you warm and a great view of the bay. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Not a great experience. Wrong entree sent to and took ages to get the right one even though it was a cold entree. Before those members of the party had finished there late entree the mains arrived and were put on the table. Unbelievably 2 of the hot mains were cold. Once again took ages to sort out heating them up. To be fair theu were replaced with fresh ones but we were happy for what we had just to be heated up. Not a great experience. They did not add the standard 6 person 20% tip but i added it since our server tried to make an effort. Sorry but won't be back.

    Lovely time, as always, at Zinque. I go there for their happy hour regularly. This time, the stars of the show were the Malbec, fried artichoke hearts, and the fries. We supped, we talked, and enjoyed the beautiful view of the bay.

    It was a tad disappointing. Food was ok, although two standout dishes, the burrata appetizer and the bread for tartines. Really busy, and first starters came out too quickly, then we weren’t ready for our mains s we asked them to wait, and it took forever. It was our Anniversary and we wanted to enjoy our meal, but it all felt sloppy and not special. Ok for a casual evening, not for a night out.

    Second time we have dinner there and both times we loved the food! Beautiful place with a very cool vibe. Location is great. Only negative on both our visits was the service. First time the server was not engage or friendly but we did get good service from the runners. Waters and other needs were met. Last night seemed like our poor server had too many tables because he was very friendly but we never got checked on. In fact we would have had a second drink but we never got the severs attention. I will definitely go back because I loved the food and ambience. Would make this place amazing if the service had been a little better but not a deal breaker. Thanks!

    The starter was nearly 30 mins and then when it arrived 1 minute later they brought mains! No room on table for the 3 dishes and one main was hot so we had to send it back to sit in a heater until we finished starter. Rice bowl dish was tasteless. Coq au vin dish had bacon in it (not on menu), my husband doesn’t eat pork. They offered feee dessert for the error and the dessert requested wasn’t available! Won’t be returning, overall poor.

    Lovely restaurant. We were here for brunch. Good aperol spritzes. My husband had the breakfast burrito; it was so good. We also had a side of potatoes that were excellent. I had the breakfast sandwich and found it unimpressive. It needs some aioli or something. Finished the meal with lattes that were very nicely prepared.
