We were looking for a restaurant with both vegetarian and lo-carb options and Zin fit the bill. Everyone in our party found something. The ambience was lively, but not noisy, and the patio facing the street was cozy and fun.

Healthy to comfort food always delicious and beautifully presented. Great wine and beer menu.
Really love the patio dining right in the heart of Palm Springs perfect for a romantic dinner for two or group of friends getting together.

We were greeted by the most friendly host. She was fantastic. We had a nice meal seated outside. Good for people watching.

We five had a reservation for 6:30 pm. We were not seated till 7:00 pm. Annoying! I was surprised that nothing was comped to us, despite the inconvenience. A FINE restaurant would say "Appetizers or Desserts on the House!" Zin is a great eatery. But, they could profit from learning some business skills in customer satisfaction.

We ate at Zin's after a day of golf in Palm Springs. Had a lovely table outside so we could people watch while enjoying our meal.

Everything from drinks to dessert was excellent. There were 8 of us and everyone commented that they enjoyed their dinners. The mussels were fresh and prepared perfectly. I had the hanger steak and it was delicious!

The only slight down side was that our server was not the friendliest person. We were trying to joke with him and he really didn't seem to want to interact with us. The service he provided was good, never hovered or ignored but just didn't seen to want to be there.

other than that it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely go back.

We were all pleased to find a restaurant that met all four of our party’s food requirements. The steaks were fixed perfectly for the meat eaters. The salmon was a delight, and the special duck gave rise to rave reviews.

Specialty drinks added to the occasion served by friendly waiters. Our hostess was especially gracious and gave us seating where we requested. Overall the evening was a delight and this restaurant will be our list for our next trip to Palm Springs.

We are regulars at Zin Bistro and this was a business lunch. Perfect setting for that along with your romantic dinner or dinner with friends. Fresh menu, always friendly service. Do check it our for lunch. A little more casual and nice to enjoy the patio with the street scene right there.
