Great ambiance, food & service for the price range, great value! Loved the table side guacamole!
Extra bonus is the happy hour prices!
Superb service, Excellent. food. Will return next time in San Antonio. Extensive wine selection. One of the best resturants we visited while on vac.
Wonderful food, ambience and service!! Great to get off the chaos of the river. I had crab cakes. My husband had shrimp po boy. Excellent prickly pear margarita!
The food and service were very good, but the noise level was too high for us. The previous time I came, it was for lunch and I sat outside, which was delightful.
We visit twice a year during convention events. The service this was time was the worst. Twenty-three minutes to receive our water and drinks. Crazy!
Excellent food and relaxing atmosphere for the weary conventioneer!
I brought my date here thinking it would be a lovely time, however, it was quite the opposite. My date and I were very underwhelmed with the entire experience of food and environment. The only part of the food that was mildly enjoyable was the appetizer and the dessert. The second course was supposed to be a lobster ravioli but then we were notified that they ran out and only offered one thing as a substitute; scallops. The scallops were quite bland and nothing special. The entree we both ordered was the steak and we both asked for medium but when they came out mine was much bloodier than my date’s. Come to find out mine was rare. After dinner my girlfriend was having stomach pain and cramps. She took antacids but that didn’t help at all. She had to take prescription medicine just to make the pain bearable. Overall the experience was horrible, underwhelming, and we shall not return unless otherwise compensated for our visit. Very disappointed.
My husband and I came here for our Valentine’s Day date. It was perfect! Affordable, romantic setting, extensive wine list, and the best filet mignon I’ve ever had!
Valentine’s dinner menu was phenomenal. Quick and outstanding service.
I made reservations for Valentine's day with my wife. We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time which was 7:00pm. We were immediately seated, but to my dismay, the hostess escorted us to another building leading to a larger room for large groups. We were in the corridor, up against the wall. Imagine sitting in a hallway. Although the food was very good, we waited roughly 45 minutes between our second course and the Main entree, or third course. Overall, we were in the restaurant for approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes. I really don't know what I have to do to be seated in the main dining room. (This has only happened once, and the irony is that I didn't have a reservation at that time.) Our table was quiet initially, until the large group began entering through our room to get to the banquet room. Very disappointed!
My husband and I decided to try Zinc Bistro & Wine Bar for Valentine's Day. There was a four-course Valentine's Day special, $45 per person, so we decided to do that. We also bought a few cocktails and truffle fries. The truffle fries were great, the texture of the fries was crispy on the outside and they were paired with a great dipping sauce. The cocktails were all well-made, my favourite was the sangria which contained red wine, liquors, and apple bits. We received a choice of lobster bisque or warm spinach salad (we chose the former, and it was tasty), lobster ravioli, an entree, and a dessert. My choice of entree was the redfish, which had delicious sun-dried tomatoes on top. It was OK, but too salty for me- even with the sweetness of the tomatoes added. My husband's steak (black angus center cut filet) with asparagus and mashed potatoes was perfect. The steak was cooked they way he prefers it (medium) and the mashed potatoes had a great, chive-like seasoning. By the time we descended upon the dessert, I couldn't eat very much. My husband devoured the chocolate box, and enjoyed the hints of citrus/mousse. I would have, as well- if there had been room for it. The service was not good, due the amount of people dining out for Valentine's Day. I think we would have received better service on a normal night.
Awesom Valentine’s Day meal
Always amazing meal. Great service (they allow you to enjoy your meal, not rush you out). Tasty cocktails.
I chose this resturant from the Internet. This was our first visit and everything was great. The food was amazing, we all agreed. Service was exceptional. We had a wonderful Valentine's Celebration. Thank you Zinc Bistro & Wine Bar.
We enjoyed a nice candle lit lunch on Valentine’s Day. The food was great and the service was amazing!
This was my second visit to Zinc, and I am even more in love with this place than before! We visited Zinc for lunch this time, where we started with the Zinc salad with apples and goat cheese. For my entree, I enjoyed the most amazing (and large!) ham, cheese, and tomato on brioche. Surprisingly, there was also asparagus on the sandwich - it was a bit much for me personally, but what an interesting touch! The potato salad tasted great, but was lukewarm in temperature. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be that way or cold. My mother ordered the hummus and pita bread for her entree. It was a beautiful display and tasted even better; 2-alarm is the perfect name as the serrano peppers were definitely hot! I will definitely visit Zinc on future trips to San Antonio.
We love to go to Zinc’s, great atmosphere, always pleasant, food is excellent and they have the best tasting frozen Prickly Pear margarita’s! Highly recommend
Zinc never disappoints. My husband and I prefer it to its sister restaurant Boudros. The prickly pear margaritas are a must for anyone that likes a sweet margarita. Even at almost $11, it’s worth it. We always start with the spicy spinach artichoke au gratin dip. So rich and creamy with a nice kick. At $4 each we both had a salad. I love the Zinc salad with goat cheese. I chose crab cakes for my entree. Nice size and flavor with the sauce. Greens on the side with pear and avocado was an interesting combination. My hubby got the short rib sandwich. The meat was very tender and flavorful with a nice spicy sauce. The bread was a little much so he ate it open face. He really liked the potato salad and house pickles it was served with. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the cool night with the supplied ponchos and patio heaters. Not touristy at all. Highly recommend. Off the Riverwalk but worth it. 2 margaritas, 2 beers, appetizer, 2 salads and 2 entrees... bill was $81. Carmen was a great server. Next time we are in SAT, we will be at Zinc.
great service, great food, welcoming staff. will definitely come again !
We literally stumbled upon this restaurant which is near but not on the ‘River Walk’. Friendly, genuine and helpful staff advised they that the half price bar snacks were still available, and what an option! We had the Calamari and Hummus with a beer and soft drink, fantastic and literally a meal. So good we went back two nights later for an equally enjoyable dinner. Terrific!
