    Disappointing! Exceptionally loud in the main dining room and changed tables but the band made it impossible to hear each other. The service was unfriendly and negligible. Had to ask repeatedly for butter and finally received it at the end of the meal.

    Staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious--a falafel Greek salad and a chicken and bacon panini with fries. And the location on a small lake is just lovely.

    Gorgeous and engaging setting and atmosphere, lively locals, very lively service from the host to the server. My only reasons for 4/5 stars: Caesar Salad was flavorless, and the amazingly talented band was too loud to sit inside, but it was freezing outside by the lake Eve with the heaters. Even so, the incredible filet made up for the cold!

    We were given old menus so when ordering we had to begin all over again. The table wasn't set and ready for us and we had a reservation. The food was not hot when it arrived. It was overpriced for the food value. Loved the music and couldn't hold a conversation because of the volume. Otherwise it was great evening.

    Multiple times eating here at Zin. Love the view of the lake, the music is great, and the service is excellent. Had an issue with the Mahi Mahi this time....was not fresh at all, but switched to the Salmon and it was great. Great neighborhood place.

    Great place, staff, and management. Last night it was raining like crazy, we had a reservation. They called and asked if we would like to cancel because of the weather and that we would be the only patrons. It was my wife's birthday so asked if it's ok that we could still come. They not only seated us even though no one else was their but they were extremely gracious, food was great with very little wait time 😋 and did a little desert for her birthday.

    Well, I assumed since it was lakeside this place was going to be pretty nice. Walked in and everything looked the part. Live music, fire pit, views of the water, check... check... check. Then we got sat and the hostess said she would bring over kids menus... never came. 15 minutes later our waitress said the didn't have a kids menu but could do a cheese pizza or chicken fingers, mac and cheese. Fine. We ordered the calamari to start and. This came straight from whatever vendor Chili's gets their frozen foods from, from the freezer to the deep fryer. But whatever, it was ok. Then the meals. My wife got the Macadamia nut crusted halibut... same, looks like it came from the freezer to the pan for $42. I got the Chicken cordon bleu... it was not bad, but the fries were definitely, from some frozen food vendor. Every meal tasted uninspired and wildly overpriced for what you were getting. I guess paying for the ambiance. 4 adults, 2 kids, one appetizer 4 adult entrees, 2 kid meals, 3 beers, 1 glass of wine, 1 margarita, 2 shared desserts, $340 (gratuity was included for some reason.. not that the waitress let us know). I honestly feel like we would have gotten a similar meal at Applebees or chilis for 1/3 the price. Maybe would go for drinks some time, but not for a birthday meal.

    Generally if there's no special event going on, it's not hard to get a table here. We had family in town and were able to get a table for 6 + a baby with little notice. The food really impressed our guests, as well as the live music.

    It was Christmas Eve, when families want to go out and enjoy each other’s company but they had live music (not Christmas music) turned to a very high volume along with the football game blaring, we couldn’t even have a conversation. A very disappointing holiday evening. I’ll never come back to this restaurant again

    We asked and it was confirmed the regular menu would be available on Xmas eve, yet when we arrived there was a limited Xmas eve menu with elevated prices. A filet mignon is $48 on the regular menu and was $62 on the Xmas eve menu; fettuccine bolognese is $32 on the regular menu, and was $48 tonight. Food was delicious, but it would have been nice had they been honest with us when they confirmed our reservation two days in advance.

    The gentleman at the front desk that met us a was a nice enough young man with braces, but the problem was as soon as I asked him about getting a reservation checking on a reservation and getting a window seat or seat overlooking the lake. He just talked about how very busy you were and it’s just been exhausting and it’s just been so many people and he was emotional, so that was not what I’m used to. Secondly, I had the macadamia nut halibut and it was dry. It was over cooked. It was like a frozen piece of fish that had been thrown in the oven. I should have spoke up. I should’ve said something to the waiter and I didn’t and that is my fault but my food was horrible and the the rice was cold. The one thing that was good was the sautéed spinach with garlic in. It will be challenging for me to ever come back. My husband had the three seafood dish and he said one out of the two seafood dishes were decent, but we were enjoying our company with our friends so he didn’t say anything. Bad food bad front desk service. Cathy Archulet.

    The food was tasty but overpriced. It was the only thing that saved this place. I’m not sure if it was a shortage of staff or new or training staff but we waited forever to get a menu, to take our order, to get the heat lamps turned on (they sat us outside), and then we waited (and sweat) for someone to turn down the blast furnace! The only thing we didn’t have to wait for was the check. So disappointed ☹️.

    We were celebrating a birthday! The cocktails were very good, but the food was very disappointing! The onion soup was very salty, the halibut was thin and dry, the rice was cold, and the seabass smelled fishy. The creme brûlée birthday dessert was good. It’ll be awhile before we return. Hopefully, the kitchen will improve on the quality and temperature of the food.

    There was excellent live music but unfortunately one of our party has hearing issues. After being seated and serving us drinks we asked to move tables. They were so gracious and found us a quieter table even though it was very busy. Our servers were fantastic. And the food was excellent as always.
