Great place for lunch dinner. Next to a lake . The food was great but you have to let the kitchen know how u like ur meal or they will over do it. For salads ask dressing on the side. Overall amazing experience.
It was nice dinner with family
Nice location. Only average food and service. Probably not in a hurry to eat there again any time soon.
This was a truly outstanding dining experience. The food was excellent, the service was attentive but not obtrusive. The location was obviously lovely. Eating outside at night was perfectly balanced between breezy and airy but not cold. Amazing dinner.
Food was amazing and the ambiance on the lake was fantastic. I will be coming back.
Food was amazing. From appetizers (burrata bruschetta, snapper device, calamari) to main dishes (braised ribs where meat is falling off the bone, fried chicken & lobster , shrimp scampi) were delicious and very much worth it. Would come back in a snap.
The food was excellent and the service was very good. My only complaint is that I made a 7pm reservation and when I arrived was told "ok, we'll put you on the list and let you know when a table opens up" and so we waited until 7:30pm to be seated. I was told by the hostess that they are not allowed to reserve tables. If this is true then why do they accept reservations? I saw two other parties who also had reservations get frustrated and leave after waiting over 20 minutes.
Zinn never disappoints!!
Fantastic atmosphere . . waitress wonderful service..We ordered Fettucine Bolgonese- very good and good size portion. We also got Tomahawk steak- rib eye- a little fatty. Delicious dessert- Chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream..We bought our own wine which was fantastic- 15.00 corking fee. I will definitely go again and soon
Zin is one of my favorite restaurants in town!
We absolutely loved being outdoors by the fire, the ambience was perfect for an early chilly evening! Had never eaten here and the menu was enormous with many options for our gluten free and vegetarian friends. Great time boating over and docking in daylight.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch out on the deck at Zin Bistro. The weather was perfect and the view of the lake fabulous, a much need break from the COVID craziness! My one friend really liked her Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and fries. My other friend loved the Halibut tostada...that will be my choice next time. I had the Lobster salad. The salad greens were fresh and tasty however, there was very, very little lobster on the salad.
Perfect restaurant for a business luncheon
A true disappointment
We went to celebrate my wife’s birthday which they ignored. Why write on the reservation if one is going to ignore it.
We decided to share their baked fish special. My wife asked if it was spicy. The waitress said they could make it without the spice and put the spice(Sauce) on the side. It was still way to spicy... for me. My wife enjoyed it.
The service was adequate but it seemed as if they were only going thru the motion.
They could have done so much better.
I was disappointed with the quality of the food. Sand-dabs were tough. Dessert: ice cream filled with ice chips.
Service was good.
Beautiful restaurant right next to the lake. The food was exquisite. The service excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch on Sunday. We will be adding this restaurant to our list of favorites.
Tasting in preparation for a baby shower that will be held there in December. The food and service were amazing and my niece is so excited to have her event at Zin (we appreciate the hand sanitizer on each table and all the safe guards taken by staff). Jaymie our server was lovely. Zin is a neighborhood gem!
Excellent menu and well executed. The waiter had an attitude and just wasn’t nice - but he took good care of us and all was accurate. No reason to for him to be pompous and carry that attitude as if he was in a stuffy Beverly Hills restaurant. Otherwise, great dinner!
Entertainment was great as well as the food! We frequent this restaurant often!
Service was slow. Otherwise, the food was good!
Nice setting - great food
Food was great as usual. Chilean sea bass was sautéed with a delicious butter sauce with tomato chunks.
Very enjoyable. Great location. Good and diverse menu. We’ll be back.
Poorly managed. Food was great, waitress was great. Supporting service staff was gruff and not friendly
Everything was perfect. Our server Jamie was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. Our experience, as usual, was superb.
Ambiance and service was good, food was poor, especially for the price.
Started off having to wait 35mins for our reservation. What’s a reservation for if you have to wait so long for it?
It was a busy evening but that’s never an excuse for poor service, restaurants that are generally busy should know how to staff appropriately to give their dinners a good experience. The wait for service was too long and during dinner no one came to check on us - shame, I wanted a second glass of wine.
The medium rare steak we asked for came out medium well and the Halibut was very dry. For these prices I would expect better cuisine.
I imagine that this place is better during the week. I wouldn’t recommend going here on weekends.
Too expensive, average service food was ok, not great
Got to the restaurant on time waited while 2 girls at the front desk were gossiping. Finally was seated, not close to the water where I had asked. They brought us to a table with 2 seats, not 3 so we waited until they set up the other place. Ordered an appetizer, asked for a spoon, after a few minutes no one came back, asked another person for a spoon - again, no one showed up. Got our dinner. It was fine, nothing special. This was a special occasion, so I was looking for something really good. After we had finished, I asked to have the rest of my dinner wrapped up, everything except the rice. When I got my Togo box back they put the rice in it. Then I got the bill, 18% gratuity added. No mention of this beforehand and I honestly wouldn’t have mined if the service was good.
Social distancing protocols were followed.
Great location right by the lake. Very nice being able to relax and watch Canadian geese and other birds in the water. It was not crowded even though we did make an on-line reservation just in case. Our service was excellent and all Covid precautions were taken by the staff and the restaurant. Tables were a nice distance from each other. We just had appetizers and the fried pickles were great as well as the fried calamari and shrimp. We would definitely return.
They forgot our appetizers and I had to remind them twice. From cutlery to drink orders everything had to be asked twice for it to come to the table. Took exactly an hour to get our food. They comped the appetizers but honestly I’ll pay for my own food... what I need is professional service at this price point.
A Sunday afternoon late lunch with lake view and beautiful weather. Food and service were good and the view great as usual. The hostess seemed inattentive and in a bad mood, but we just ignored that aspect of our lunch😁
Beautiful location, great service, good food and a reasonably priced wine list...what could be better? Zin Bistro offers a wonderful Sunday Brunch/lunch menu as extensive as you could ever imagine. They also have all you can drink Mimosas for, as I recall, $16. All the safety precautions you'd want, I highly recommend Zin Bistro.
We love eating at Zin! The food and service are fantastic and the setting by the lake is picturesque.
We made a reservation for 7:15 got to our table at 8. you could've just gave us table at 8
We were seated an hour after our reservation time. It was very crowded and social distancing was non existent. We were a party of 4 (2 couples) and each of us were charged for the entire check and had to request that was corrected. In no rush to rerun to this restaurant.
Nice table just inside that looked towards lake and sun setting while live music played outside. Staff was friendly. Great food.
I would like to give them no stars. I booked the place for a special occasion. Unfortunately we were seated someplace away from the actual restaurant seating. How can that table be special and romantic, my husband and I left.
