A New York Style Parisian Bistro. A 4000 sq, foot restaurant that is designed with contemporary sensibilities, yet returns the nostalgic ambiance of an authentic Parisian bistro. Round marble bistro tables and wicker chairs spill out onto the sidewalk, offering a kind of people watching one might indulge in, along Boulevard Saint-Germain. Zinc Bistro also offer a romantic garden patio secluded deep in the restaurant, lit by candles during the evening, creating an unforgettable ambiance, or a relaxing atmosphere near our fountain in the afternoon. The oyster bar stands at the end of the 25 foot zinc bar, serving fruit de mer platters, as well as all of the accoutrements. We bring in shellfish daily, offering the freshest oysters, clams, mussels, and lobster in the desert.

La Zinc plateau de fruits de mer, no oysters, was enjoyable. (iced seafood appetizer)

Crab crepe appetizer was also enjoyable

Flatiron steak was inedible due to the amount of vein not trimmed.

we had the eggs benedick The portions were way too small and the crab cake was hard to find because you made it so petite. Was disapointed with how small the portions were and over priced.

Outstanding service starting at the front of the house and very attentive wait staff. It’s a very nice French bistro style menu. Food is attractively presented, tastes fresh. They pay attention to the little details. It’s a comfortable setting. The French press coffee is so good.

Zinc Bistro has been a favorite for years. Can’t beat the Onion Soup. Nice atmosphere and plenty of outdoor dining available. It’s on the pricey side but worth it.

Excellent experience. Very busy spot. Outside dining area small but lovely and comfortable. Great menu...lots of appealing choices.
High grades from our group for the tuna tartare, flat iron steak, duck breast and mussels Provençal. Generous drink
size and well chosen and fairly priced French wines. Angel, our server, was knowledgeable and attentive.
Most certainly will go back next time we’re in town.

Our anniversary dinner for two was midweek after a long day of work, and we were met with welcome and warmth. The twinkling lights and softly lit interior reminded me of the cafes in Paris, though the menu was more varied and showed more than French influences. The manager gave us champagne to toast our marriage, and we were sat right next to the Eiffel Tower .

It was a little cheesy and perfect until the tuna tartare showed up. This little appetizer was an artwork for the palette. It was the kind of good that made us discuss not eating out again at lesser places.

All of our food was delicious, and the evening was a romantic perfection. I cannot recommend Zinc Bistro enough.

It made a Wednesday night after a long day unforgettable.

The food was great. Service was really good. Ambience was ok, it's hard to tell these days with all the social distancing spacing preventing the restaurant from being at full capacity, and it was a Tuesday. Overall, great, will be back.

We came here for a valentine's weekend dinner and the service was amazing. The ambiance was terrific and very romantic. The food was delicious, we had steak frites. I had the New York strip while my wife had the filet. Mine was good but hers was cooked to perfection. It was so soft but not chewy or undercooked. It was perfect. Our waitress Ashley was wonderful and made the experience great. I would come back here.

I requested outside, and we were seated in the terrarium, noisy table, croque Monsignor was way too much, could be smaller, powdered sugar and jam should be offered with it.
Wine list is very$$$.
