Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts.
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.

Daniel was perhaps the best server. He was friendly and attentive. The portions are perfect. You don't need a doggie bag and you don't leave feeling guilty. The food is superb. I came back after 15 years of remembering how special this place is. It did not disappoint. I literally came back to San Antonio so I could bring my husband to ZINC. finally, three words: prickly pear margarita.

Amy, our server was excellent in navigating the delicious menu. She also gave us touristsy ideas that were very helpful. The duck wings were crunchy and excellent. The Texas chopped salad was amazing and the lamb past was yummy comfort food. Okay the truffle fries were worth the decadence. Wine by the glass was excellent and the the prickly pear margarita was fun. A definite go back to restaurant

We started with escargot and it was fantastic. Both of our entrees were delightful and the molten chocolate cake was a perfect finish.

Located close to the riverwalk, Zinc had good food for a much more reasonable price than some other restaurants in the area. Food was good, service was a little slow - I didn't receive my wine until after my entrée had arrived, and even then I had to track down a different waiter to get my wine. Other than that, great experience. Will definitely be back.

I love this place, food is excellent. Drinks amazing. The only thing I don’t like is the co-Ed restroom in the middle of the dinning room. The only turnoff

Great place to get a tasty, we'll priced meal. The location is right off the Riverwalk. Therefore it does not have a tourist feel. The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable.

We were a bit disappointed. We booked a reservation online and mentioned it was our Anniversary. When we arrived, we were seated at table next to a door that the wait staff used about every 30 seconds. I should have asked to move outside to the courtyard, but didn't. Our waiter was kind but not attentive and approached our table with sweat dripping from his forehead. We had to ask for refills on our drinks. Overall, the food was great, but the lack of attention to info/requests and the waitstaff was less than desirable.

Our group of friends traveled to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl, and I was given the task of making our dinner reservations. My friends just had a few requirements: fabulous food, great ambiance with casual vibe, and on our walking route from our hotel to the Alamodome. I had been to Zinc on my last visit to San Antonio (springtime which was great for sitting on their lovely patio!) so I knew it would fulfill every requirement but perhaps being on our route as I could not quite remember the location. I was so pleased to discover it was only a block from our hotel and on the route. My friends were so very pleased with my selection. We started with the Boudro's tableside guacamole which was extra tasty and moved on to delicious entrees. Three of us enjoyed pleasant wines from their very good selection. The fourth member of our party enjoyed the prickly pear margarita which she declared as the best cocktail she had had EVER! Our table was ready when we arrived, and the service was prompt and professional and never hurried. It was a most enjoyable dinner, and each of us hopes to return.
