    My wife and I came downtown to see a concert at the Ace theater and wanted to have Dinner before the show. We decided to try Zinque because it was right next door. We loved the place, everyone from the hostess to the bar tenders to the waitress were so pleasant and attentive and fun. It really makes your dinner so much more enjoyable when you have people serving you that make you feel like they're your friends. As far as the food goes, their Grilled Shimp and the Steak- Frites were outstanding (some of the best fries I have ever eaten). If you're looking for a place with a great atmosphere and exceptional food, you should check this place out. Oh, by the way, they make the best Bloody Mary's my wife and I have ever had. Hell, we decided we'd go back there just to order another Bloody Mary. Enjoy

    The food was mediocre. Each persons food came out at different times. The muscles wete overcooked. They kept delivering another tables order to our table. Lastly I had to go to the bartender to pay because our server was too busy. I think maybe they're understaffed.

    Zinque was not the "French restaurant" we expected, but rather a modernized European and limited menu. Understaffed but very nice people. Delicious food, not skimpy portions but not generous. Be prepared for QR code menu & payment, industrial seating, extremely loud.

    Dinner was great…but our waitress pitched us on dessert, then neglected to get it to us…lying to us over and over that it was coming. After a half hour, she took the dessert off the bill, promising it would be right up. After 45 minutes, she told us she thought we had already gotten it. We left with no dessert, and a bad ending to a good meal.

    Ok so we were seated inside the restaurant INSIDE, as we requested. And we were seated right next to a couple with an ill behaved pit bull that just kept pulling on its leash and “visiting” us. Sound like a fun evening to you? Since when is it appropriate to seat dogs deep inside an INDOOR restaurant?

    Our server Erin G. was great, friendly and on top of it. The support staff was great too. It’s a great place for people watching as well( sit at the low tables towards the exit). It was my first time there and it will now become a staple.

    We had a lovely meal here before a show at the Ace Hotel. The food was good, the service friendly and it felt like an early evening in Manhattan versus a hot day in LA. Definitely recommend for those looking for a place to grab a bite before a show.

    Decided to try Zinque since we were seeing a show next door at The Theater at Ace Hotel. Staff from hostess to waiter to bus team all friendly, attentive and helpful. The menu was unique and everything we had - food and cocktails - was tasty, original and very reasonably priced. Good job - will go again.

    I was excited to try out the Zinque DTLA after having a great experience at the Newport Beach location a few years ago. It did not disappoint. We arrived early and I'm glad we did. The place really filled up shortly after we arrived and had already place our order. Our server very kindly advised us that if we waited too long to place our drinks order it might be quite a wait. Turns out we got our drinks very quickly. The really nice thing is that even though the place was full by the time we finished our meal, no one rushed us to vacate the table. In fact, we had to ask for the check!

    Great place if you are headed to The Orpheum Theater. Been there a couple of times now. The food is great and at a good price point for DTLA. The cocktails are expensive, but good luck finding them much less expensive anywhere in the area. The staff is super friendly! Service can get a little slow if they start to get busy, but it is usually easy to flag someone down and get whatever you need. If you have a show to catch, you might want to tell your server in advance so they'll know to scoot the check out.

    Great place to eat before a Joe Jackson concert at the Orpheum Theatre. Loved the tuna tartare flatbread as an appetizer and enjoyed steak-frites with peppercorn sauce. Very French in an Arts Nouveau building district.

    They should heighten the security, I was confronted by a tweeker while in the bathroom. The manager was very unenthusiastic to help find the camera footage to identify the suspects. Foods alright, DTLA is a mess don’t blame it on Zinque 🤙

    Lovely spot for dinner!! Portions were substantial and everything tasted delicious! We had steak frites and the salmon plate, and the flavors were spot-on. Our server, Ivan, was absolutely wonderful - attentive, great recommendations, and friendly. The only drawback was the slightly noisy street traffic (we sat outside), but the location in busy DTLA creates that by default - there is plenty of indoor seating if that is what is preferred.

    The restaurant is in serious need of a few professionals and an expediter to bring them up to a reasonable level of service. The evening started with multiple missteps on my husband's martini. He'd ordered a dry Bombay Sapphire martini with an olive. The server came back after a while to say there was no Bombay Sapphire - which we didn't mind - so DH switched the martini to Grey Goose Vodka with the same "dry, with an olive" instruction. The drink arrived with a huge slab of lemon peel instead of the requested olive. I spotted it heading our way, and said "that really doesn't appear to be an olive!" so the server returned with three olives. A bit of overkill, but unfortunately the glass was full to the brim so there was no place to put them even though I traded the lemon peel for the olives. The waiter brought a napkin. He tried, and points for that. I suspect the bar was at fault on this one, but it's possible the waiter also doesn't know enough about drink orders to communicate clearly. Still, no harm no foul. Sadly, the evening continued its downward trajectory. We'd each ordered a salad as a starter, followed by a flatbread for each of us. After a surprisingly long wait, a single flatbread - mine - was delivered to the table along with the offer of two plates so we could share. I explained this particular flatbread was my main course, and the runner left. I ate my flatbread while we waited. And waited. Finally the salads arrived with my husband's flatbread in quick pursuit. We even received the wine we'd ordered to go with the mains...eventually. There were other small things, but the overall impression was amateur hour. The room is nice, the choices reasonable, and the server friendly if not particularly polished. But the kitchen is apparently in chaos when they can't figure out the timing for a basic order of two salads and two flatbreads for two people. The place wasn't even that busy or I would have cut them slack. Sadly, wasted potential.

    We have rated at Zinque several times and enjoyed it. However, this time things were very different. Staff were curt and dismissive, food was not served to us at anywhere near optimum temperature and one member of our party of four didn’t get served until all others at our table were finished with their meals.

    I'd booked Zinque for a date night after having a pleasant previous experience at this location. There were plenty of reservations open for the evening, and I now see why. The restaurant was maybe half full I that, but our server took 10 min to come over once seated and take our drink and appetizer orders. He was slightly helpful in letting us know one of our preferred options was out of stock, so he recommended the more expensive alternative. Thanks. When our tuna tartar did come, it was WAY too citrusy and barely tasted of anything but grapefruit. To accompany the healthy sized portion of tun were four, hard pieces of bread each about the size of a quarter. With two people those went fast, so we ended up just eating the rest with a spoon. Thirty min later and no word from our server despite him bouncing from table to table around us, I flagged him down so we could put in the rest of our order. We elected to split the branzino which I'd call mediocre at best. The only real flavor came from the chimichurri, which I'd hardly say warranted a price of $34. All told when leaving I had to apologize to my date because I'd spent the day hyping up the restaurant. TLDR, if you do go to Zinque come for lunch, flag your server down fast, and order the burger.
