I am so happy that it was a very smooth, efficient process to book a table for 15 people for brunch. We all had a great time and enjoyed the food, the variety of options to choose from and the ambiance. Service was great! Parking was easy - just valet for free for 3 hours or easy to find public parking.

We were conducting a business breakfast meeting and made the reservations. We will not be coming back. It was absolutely embarrassing. Had to get up myself and get coffee to serve us throughout the meal. Had to repeatedly request juices be delivered. Food order of client was wrong and all of ours was slow coming and cold. Put together get your own coffee, wrong food, cold food, server who wasn’t listening and inattentive and waited in an uncrowded restaurant 45 minutes for eggs and bacon skip it!!

We made a reservation for Saturday evening at 7 :30 pm. When we sat at the table we were given a very small menu and told that because of an event they had at the hotel/restaurant earlier they’re basically out of everything and offering a very limited menu. That was very disappointing and I think somehow the guests who made reservations should have been notified ahead of time. We had to scramble to find another restaurant that had availability which is not easy on a Saturday night.

I made my reservations multiple weeks in advance. When we arrived it turned out they had some event there and as a result the music was loud and their menu was modified to only have a few items!! Hence if we didn’t want one of the few options we were out of luck! Hence we left without eating! It was a total bust! I was disappointed since I drove in from Seal Beach. They had my phone number they could have called and warned me! Poor management!

Location is great, one block away from the beach and MB pier. Outdoor seating is comfortable, they have outdoor fireplaces at each outdoor table as well. Weekend mimosa special is $24 for bottomless. The avocado toast is my absolute favorite, delicious and not too heavy. The brioche French toast is also amazing.

Great menu and a beautiful location near the pier. We had a delicious with great service out on the patio.
Recommend the tuna on rice cakes, street tacos and absolutely the loaded avocado. Many times we will just stick with the appetizers because we are not big eaters but like to try different dishes.
We will definitely be back to this establishment and may even spend the night. Would like to try their Sunday brunch.

Lovely location, good food, drinks and vibes. Amazing manager. Some of the staff dont leave warm and fuzzy feeling. A little late for appointment, but still seated in requested area. A few minutes after being seated, unceremoniously asked to move to another location..reason given..late for appointment, seating choice is a preference, not a guarantee? Really? Then why was i seated then moved if this was juat a "preference" wouldn't same rule hold true for other guests? Manager did try to make up for this situation ans comped an appetizer. Unfortunately, really not digging that "preference" situation. Although have frequented this place a lot, my "preference" may now be to try other places..

Zinc is my favorite place to eat in Lenox. I always sit at the bar with my friend (zinc of course) where the service is excellent and by now familiar. They normally have specials, both appetizer and entree, and I often have them.

We went for a friend's bday and they had an area sectioned off for us. They had made a Happy Bday sign with her name and had flowers on the centerpiece. They were professional and put everyone's check separately so there was no confusion with who owed what. The food is great the atmosphere lovely it was a great experience. I highly recommend.

The experience at zinc with my friends and wife was amazing. Hailey our waitress was very knowledgeable about advising us on flavors of the red and white wines, appetizers Truffle Fingerlings, Spicy Tina in Crispy Rice, and entrees Blackened fish tacos, Angus Ribeye steak, Santa Fe bowl, and Seared Saffron Salmon..... all delicious!

The service was amazing whether it be the drink server, waitress or the manager. And I recommend sitting outside it’s a fabulous view very modern and open.

The 2:30 seating for the Mother’s Day brunch was met with hot trays with dried out egg dishes - never mind the total for 7 people with tip was close to $1,000

The service was good - he brought whole bottles of decent champagne to our table

The place was fun but the food was a unmitigated disaster

This doesn’t include food made at station

Bad experience for Mother’s Day. Restaurant called to confirm reservation but didn’t bother to tell us brunch would be “specially priced” because it’s Mother’s Day. Ok, my wife and family are worth $85 per person for a nice (but nothing really above and beyond) breakfast buffet. But when they ask me “would you like coffee?” am I really expected to ask “is that included in the $85?” I mean, who doesn’t include coffee in the price of an $85 buffet?!?! If I’m expected to ask if coffee is included what comes next? A surprise charge for ordering from the omelette bar?!Decent enough meal but the whole experience really just left a bad taste in the mouth.

Place, food and ambiance are great. The service was a bit slow. We were a party of 9 so had a lot of order, but two coffees were cold and the bottomless Mimosas did not have any fizz left in them. Other than that our Starters and Entrees were delicious and warm.

I had a positive experience with zinc@shade this past Sunday for a small bridal shower. Customer service was excellent -- I'd like to acknowledge Shelly who went above and beyond assisting us with seating and Eric who attended to our food and beverage needs throughout the entire time we were there. I highly recommend the ambiance at zinc@shade for a special event.

Unfortunately,, it was a bit too cold to enjoy sitting outside when we dined. Our food was very good as were the drinks. However, our primary server was not attentive to the point that we ultimately had to request a manager to pay our bill.

This is a hotel sports bar that serves mediocre food and drinks. Don’t go here expecting any place suitable for a date night or decent service.
