Perfect table outside over the lake. Food was outstanding. Filet and scallops.
Too bad we could not order tapas cuz we are not seated in the “bar” or inside that’s the bummer I didn’t understand that We were seated by the water front n we did enjoy the view
Love the Halibut Tostada! My friend loved the Ahi Salad. View was incredible. Server was great as well.
It was such a lovely evening! The food was amazing & the view was amazing. It was bustling & yet everything came out in a timely manner. Our server was perfect. The live band was having some issues of their own but it was nice that they had live music!
The location was beautiful, the food and service very good. It was a bit cold out and the only thing I would say that made the evening a bit less enjoyable was a that the outdoor heaters kept clicking off and we kept having to have someone relight them. They do look a bit old, so I think that investing in new heaters might be a good idea if they cut out on a regular basis. I loved the chicken cordon blu, it was so good and its not often you see it on a menu anymore - so that was awesome. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and the desserts didn’t disappoint either. A very nice evening!
We love the food and the friendly service!
Very disappointing experience. As soon as we sat down a waiter rushed over and poured water and reached over the table and spilled it all over 2 people in our party of 4! Oysters were bad. Meal was adequate and plentiful. Very noisy atmosphere. Service people rushing around and was very distracting and not relaxing. Plates clanging and dropping on the floor! Waitress was nice and attentive. I will not return.....
My first time here and I made reservations vis open table with a note about the special occasion of a birthday. No mention made by the waiter. He was very busy and the second we sat down he wanted our drink order. We needed a minute and he was back again and we hadn’t even open the cocktail menu. Again we told him we needed a minute. There he was again in a minute. This time I explained to him that my boyfriend was feeling ill and I would call him back to the table when he was feeling a little better. He seemed perturbed. We asked if we could have our candle lit. He said he didn’t have a match. Needless to say, candle never got lit. 😂
Another great dinner at Zin's Bistro Americana. Beautiful lake view.
This special location has been a favorite for my family and friends for many years now. It is a gem of a spot play sweat on the waterfront where you can enjoy a sunset over a deliciously prepared meal.
Just ok, at best. Old and really a bar scene.
Great food and atmosphere. Drinks are pricey except happy hour, but you have to sit in bar.
The view from the table was beautiful.
The waitress was inexperienced and not attentive.
All four of us agreed that the meal was mediocre at best.
The baramundi was good, but the rice was tasteless and the vegetables were undercooked.
The macadamia nut crusted halibut was a bit overcooked.
The tarte tatin was not a tarte tatin, pretty to look at, but a tastless mess. It was not an apple pie, nor a tarte tatin.
We go to Zin Bistro often and I think this time everyone in our party of 5 really enjoyed everything. The short ribs were awesome!
Service and food were fantastic!
We live close by so we enjoy going to this restaurant ever so often for a special date night.
Also they have great live music on some night.
Food always good. Lots to choose from however ran out of our sons fav dessert/ bread pudding .. on a Thurs....
The only good thing in this restaurant is the location only. The food was way below average and so expensive . The service was below average too, we ordered crispy fried calamari and a charcuterie and cheese platter as starters, the calamari that needed more time for cooking came first and after a good 10 minutes the charcuterie and the cheese platter arrived!!!! There was a very loud live music from the twenties!!!!
Zin was recommended to me by a friend when I inquired about a good Agoura spot to meet up with an out of town friend. We were seated on the patio and were given privacy, with very good service. Our orders were so different, but each was good. I would send anyone their way!
Ambience was very good but food was just ok. The Barbecued short ribs were a bit tough and chewy.
Amazing outdoor facing the water Valentines dinner. Seems that there’s live entertainment daily. Plenty of parking space.
Horrible slow service
Nice restaurant with good food and a wonderful view. Drinks are a bit pricey though.
Beautiful setting right on the lake. Wonderful views and romantic ambience.
Food is consistently excellent. Love this restaurant!
The setting is so lovely and the service was excellent.
Tables with beautiful view of the lake. Extensive menu with variety for all diets restrictions. Greek salad was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive.
Food is always good, but I had two appetizers and a drink and it was about $60 per person....a bit pricey.
Nice atmosphere/ambience and good food. Recommend going while it’s still light outside to enjoy the views of the lake.
Great restaurant! It’s upscale casual and they accommodate kids with a few simple “kid- friendly” offerings. The ambiance is excellent. The outside dining overlooks the lake- lit up and gorgeous at night! Food was excellent. Pricing was fair.
Overpriced and less than remarkable
The lake is nice
We have been to Zin numerous times, always good. Our waiter tonight was almost non existent however. Normally they are quite good.
Lakeside views and ambiance enhance the delicious food.
Good service at a high price
We waited over one hour for our entrees. Staff gave us a bottle of wine to compensate, which was appreciated.
Had the cod felt is was to salty and the portion was very small. This restaurant is terribly overpriced for the quality of food they serve.
Had a wonderful time!
The Zin Bistro is a nice combination of open areas and private tables--so you can be in the middle of the bar scene or a quiet observer totally focused on your dining companion, as you wish. The menu starters are nicely plated, generously portioned--burrata and the (3) cheese plate, for examples. (The honey served with the (3) cheeses is its own delightful detail). Salads and salmon were on expectation--very nice. The ratio of busing, water service and server attention--very adequate; no waiting or wondering if you have been forgotten. Price point is reasonable for the nice area. Small detail, but fun: there are no speed bumps in the parking area!
Going to Zin Bistro Americana was a last-minute decision, but a good one. While an exact match to the type of table we requested was not granted (given the late booking, probably not noticed until we appeared), efforts were made for a "best we can do at he moment" table, which was sufficient. Great efforts of all of the staff at every service juncture, given the rush of holiday luncheons simultaneously taking place all around us.
The food was well-presented (though I'm never pleased when a food runner arrives and asks "who ordered what," though this is common these days), and the portions were reasonably small -- which is quite refreshing. The Lobster salad was a disappointment (a bit more lobster was expected), but not at all bad. The seared Ahi salad was "just the right amount," and I was wise to ask for the sauce/drizzle to be served on the side (it was overpowering, at a minimum).
VERY professional staff, "nice" food, and a beautiful surrounding. We know what to expect when going to this restaurant, and what to expect, primarily, is an excellent staff, adequate food, and (on a beautiful day) beautiful surroundings.
Glad we went, and looking forward to going again!
We had a $200 Groupopn for four and did not use it all. Great onion rings for appitizer.
Lobster salad was outstanding (entree) also Caprese salad was a great appitizer. The sand dabs were great and I have had the sea bass before which was outstanding. Really fair prices for the quality of food. Highly recommended for a nice waterfront evening.
My favorite place! Food, service, drinks, and ambiance are always on point!
Been going to Zin for a number of years. Still thinks it's a good place for lunch, but dinner was disappointing. The Sheperds Pie was not done in a typical fashion, just had a big chunk of pastry thrown on the top like a giant piece of bread. I had the Lobster Ravioli and asked for just a small amount of sauce. It came swimming in sauce. Either the waitress wasn't paying attention or the cook didn't read her note.
All in all was not the best experience.
