Dominic is an excellent waiter, and we appreciated the attentive service from his assistants. Nicole warmly greeted us like we were family, even though they were extremely busy.

Have never had a bad meal at Zin. Was a lovely spot to go with guests from out of town to show off the Palm Springs dining experience.

Zin has become an annual stop on our annual visit to Palm Springs. We’ve never had a bad meal... XXX Macaroni & Cheese is reliably awesome. I had the Belgian Beef Stew this year which was amazing... even more so when paired with a nice glass of red at the suggestion of Neil the bartender. We’ve taken to eating at the bar, in part to chat with whomever else happens to be sitting there, but also to to visit with Neil and watch him ply his craft.

Lobster bisque was thin as water and had little if any lobster. Fried chicken was great.

Interesting menu. Nice options. The steak was prepared perfectly but the sauces were perfectly average. It would have been better if the steak were presented bare.

I had the Sand Dabs. Not an attractive fish. Gray in color and an overall bland and soggy dish. Not tasty or appealing to the eye.
Forgot our cheese plate, had to ask for a glass of water a couple of times...overall disappointing. We have been here several times and were excited to bring our friends here for their first time. Not an impressive night.

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.
