Zinc Bistro & Wine Bar
Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.
Zinc Burger is outstanding. Place looks a little run down. Service good.
We are absolutely headed back, tomorrow!, with a friend in tow. The food and drink were so good that we want to explore the menu further. Also, we had no room for dessert last time, so.....
He had the short rib sandwich and I had the crabcakes. And both styles of margarita. Just great. Service from Dustin was stellar.
As usual, the food and service was brilliant. Our waiter, Dustin, was efficient and personable. The only downside was that there were several groups that evening and the noise level was distracting. My wife and I had a difficult time hearing each other.
Not bad. Great service. Good food. A few anomalies. Bar oddly built. No room for legs. Need to work on the staff. Many employees in public spaces overheard having conversations they really needed to be having somewhere else. Some employees were arrogant and rude to each other. Wine list needs work.
The lamb and Brie burger was fantastic as well as the shrimp!
Overall expericance was great ! Waiter could’ve been more attentive but food and everything was great
Good food, quirky place, more casual than I expected.
The steak and potatoes are absolutely next level and worth every penny. Tableside guac is always fantastic. Great wine selection. Oh and don't forget to try the bread pudding souffle! I love going here!
Zinc is consistent in every aspect! We always enjoy this hidden gem of a restaurant. The drinks and the food menu are always fresh and tasty. We enjoyed the Calamari as a shared plate. The Prickly Pear Margarita, yum and also the Whiskey drink with crushed ice.The entrees we had were the Sirloin Steak and the Fish and Chips (Cod) with fries. Delicious! I usually enjoy the Lamb Burger! The Menu is small but always has something, that I want to try! Give this place a try, either with the two of you or a group!
The parking can be the catch so shop around for the best pricing in downtown San Antonio!
We continue to return to Zinc because the food is great and the wait staff wonderful, especially Daniel.
Good place. Will go back again. Good location off river walk and out of main tourist traffic.
Love the small plates!
Great service from Sam, the bartender and excellent waiter!
Great food and great wine
We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and they treated us very well. Patrick, our waiter, was awesome and brought us glasses of champagne on the house to start the evening off. Drinks, appetizers, entrées, and dessert were all sensational. Thanks to all the staff and management, and to Patrick, for making it a memorable evening. We shall be returning when we come back to San Antonio.
Zinc is the best place to enjoy wine and delicious eats in downtown San Antonio! The service is wonderful and the food and wine selection is amazing.
Nice place tucked away from the mainstream. Highly recommend it!
A hidden gem, unique food and drinks. High quality food and service.
We met up with some friends from out of town and were not disappointed! The Spinach dip, Lamb Burger & Prosecco were my top faves.
Celebrating a birthday. Enjoyed the option of ordering from the Restaurant Weeks menu or regular menu. Great wine list with many options by the glass. Great quality at reasonable prices. Everything we ordered was delicious.
Delicious food, great ambiance and the service was amazing
Restaurant is more of a bar experience than a food experience. Food and service were very good. The noise was more of a loud bar environment, not conducive to a relaxing dinner. Loud party was very overwhelming to other dinner guests, Management did nothing to calm the atmosphere.
We discovered Zinc on our last trip to San Antonio. it was quite by accident. We were just killing some time walking around taking in some sites and thought we'd pop in for a bite. The place was crowded that night and they sat us in the back patio (it was a wonderful September evening). The food and service was wonderful. When we returned recently to San Antonio we made a reservation through Open Table and sat in the dining room this time. The 2-alarm hummus, the "made at table" guac, and the shrimp were fabulous. The service is amazing. The staff really takes care of you at Zinc. If you're in SA anytime, make time for Zinc.
Very quaint and convenient with great food and drinks.
Brought a large group here and they were very accommodating. Food was delicious and great service. My salad came out after my meal and I wasn’t happy about that and brought it up to the server. Ultimately they removed it from my bill which was very nice of them.
Nice atmosphere. Good service. Tasty lamb burger entree
Awesome place that is very affordable.
Great wine list, well rounded. Will go again next time I’m in town.
The host kindly sat us ahead of our reservation time. No one else came to the table for more than fifteen minutes. Don't know what happened there, failure to communicate to wait staff, we were inexplicably rendered invisible, or what. We left. Everyone, including the four or so wait staff who had ignored us, were quite friendly as we walked out.
Food Nd service has been consistently good since the day it opened
Thus was my first time at Zinc. Great experience, friendly and attentive staff and the food was not only delicious but presentation was wonderful. We really enjoyed everything.
Cool atmosphere. Fantastic service. The prices are reasonable and the food was great.
Our server was phenomenal. I wish I could remember his name. My friend's pizza was delicious. The hen wings were not good to me. The guacamole was pretty good. It was missing the heat I'm accoustomed to having.
This place was mediocre at best. Our waitress disappeared for about 30 minutes near the end of our meal, and we had to go physically find her because no one else came near our table. The food was bland and dry, outside of the okay calamari.
Delicious food and great service! Will be back!
Fantastic find! We went because a waiter at another restaurant recommended it. The food is amazing and very well priced. Get the guacamole prepared table side as it is unlike others you’ve had and so great. The zinc burger and short rib sandwich were so good we had to finish it even though we were stuffed.
Slow service and noise level was so loud we could barely hear ourselves. Crab cakes were disappointing. Dessert was the highlight!
Everything tasted fresh! We ordered a ceasar salad, margharita pizza, ham & cheese melted sandwich and the chocolate molten cake. Just wish the chocolate molten cake was bigger!
My favorite lunch spot in SanAntonio. The selection was great and the service wonderful! Our food was fresh and flavorful.
