We dined here with my elderly parents, and all had a great time. The food was delicious, and accommodated our disparate tastes and needs (Vegan, Gluten Free, Picky, Carnivore!) The staff was amazing and we felt very cared for during our dinner. We'll be making this a regular stop in Palm Springs.

We have been vacationing in the Palm Springs area in March for the last 15+ years. Zin is always on our dining reservation list. We have never been disappointed. And, we have recommended Zin to many of our friends. Our only sadness is that we cannot dine at Zin and then attend the Follies.

Nice dinner. Celebrating a friend’s birthday. Question. Why ask in the reservation process if it’s a Special occasion? My response that it was a birthday didn’t translate into anything. Just asking. Many places help celebrate with a desert.

This is a restaurant on the strip where you can be "seen" in Palm Springs. Unfortunately that means it is right on the road and quite noisy. In addition on this particular day there was a rowdy crowd of about 8 drinking and partying so that added to the noise level.
Food not that inspiring although a wrapped shrimp and raw tuna appetizer were good, the "steak" calamari was just a greasy pile of not quite cooked fat calamari with uninspiring sauces. Eggs Bennie was just normal and probably could be eaten at Dennys. Nothing special here and not cheap. Lots of other places to choose from.

I have been a fan of Zin American Bistro for years. I haven't been in a few months. The wine list is still very impressive and the service was very good. I found the menu not very exciting. I had the Parm salad and thought it was awful. The mussel app was good.

This was our second time trying ZAB. We’re here last vacation and really loved it so decided to go back. The food was good but the service was slow and confusing. We had a really enthusiastic waiter to start and then he didn’t come back and we ended up with a waiter that was not so personable. The difference was significant. It’s a great place to people watch and the food is good but not sure if we will put it on our list for next trip.

Zin American Bistro
Responded on February 24, 2020

Thanks for coming in and we're glad you enjoyed your dinner. We are always happy to have you served by your favorite waiter so if you'd like to message me back and describe your waiter I'd be happy to put his name in your reservation notes. Most of my staff have been with me for 5+ years so odds are you could have him next visit. I can't look your name up by Spartyfan to request NOT to have the one you had last week. We hope you will visit again. My personal email is zin1ps@yahoo

A nice dining experience overall. Great service. The oysters and scallops were tasty and prepared well. Disappointed that the kitchen ran out of chicken schnitzel. This was the main reason we chose to dine here. The filet minion was sub par. Ordered medium rare and the meat was overcooked and tasteless. We are local and will try again but not a favorite place.

Zin American Bistro
Responded on February 24, 2020

We're really sorry we ran out of the schnitzel and even more sorry your steak was cook wrong. Please send Mindy a message back or call her at the restaurant - we'd like to make it right and send you a gift certificate for your next visit. You and respond here privately or email Mindy at zin1ps@yahoo We appreciate our locals very much and thank you for the 4 stars.

We celebrated Valentines Day at Zin, and it was a wonderful evening. Had a terrific bottle of Bordeaux red, selected from their extensive wine list. I had the steak frites as my entrée and it was cooked to perfection. However, the best treat was the cheesecake, made with goat cheese. Really special.

Always love the menu, service, options, and that the proprietor is onsite meeting, greeting, and resolving any issues that might come up. They didn't have our selected Malbec, but they substituted a slightly higher-priced bottle and honored the pricing on our original selection. Now that is customer service! Thanks Mindy!
