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.

We went on for dinner on Mother’s Day. The food was very good. The service was extremely slow.
Had I not been to Zinc many times before I may not go back.

What a great Mother’s Day. Other than my burger being undercooked which they quickly fixed it was a great lunch. Great service.

Superb service despite being very busy. Excellent food. We had chicken, scallops and lamb--each dish was well prepared. It was hard to choose from the varied menu, but each loved the dish and sides we selected. Don't miss the French onion soup or the chocolate souffle--magnifique!

The entire staff at Zinc Bistro are outstanding ! It is our "go to " place.

Matt Carter's food is simply divine. Whether it's salads, sandwiches, entrees, seafood or just a glass of wine and an appetizer, this is the place.

Warm friendly atmosphere, great food !

We really enjoyed our time here. The staff was accommodated our party with a large Akita puppy. We had a perfect seat at the end of the patio where we could easily keep the dog out of the way. The service was attentive and friendly. My party enjoyed the food and wine as well. It was a special meal for us celebrating a family reunion.

We always have a great experience at Zinc Bistro. Love the french cuisine and the wine list. Our servers have always been top-notch and make great menu and wine recommendations. I consider this place a "special occasion" type place because it just feels special when you dine there, even though we go for dinner or sunday brunch every couple months since finding it!

I love the Zinc and have loved it for a long time. We have gotten rigid over time and quit trying the various bodacious selections on the menu. We now just quickly order the “Oh Yeah!” curry chicken sandwich with a side of “I had no idea they could be this good.” truffle fries. One order of each is more than enough for the two of us. An ice tea also goes very nicely with this and gives you something to do while you engage in the best "people watching” this side of New York. Get an outside table and as close to the corner as you can for maximum viewing enjoyment. Yes, the food is all really wonderful, but the people watching is what puts the Zinc over the top.

Our waiter, Frankie, was super fantastic! Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, & enthusiastic. He suggested the special, which was a tomahawk steak for two. Problem here is I like my steak rare to medium-rare. Frankie sold my wife on the idea of medium rare “plus”. She loved it! The General Manager, Kat, came by and checked on the meal, etc. The four of us loved the place. My wife & I liked it so much we came back for lunch the next day. We sat outside & Myra was our waitress. Another great waiter. The GM, Kat, saw we were back and gave us a glass of delicious Champagne!

We can’t recommend Zinc strongly enough. By the way, get the Duck Confit sandwich for lunch!

We will be back when we are back in Scottsdale!

It was a Friday night, very noisy and we were seated in a very busy area, seeing the kitchen, service area and all the wait staff walking past and people going to the bathrooms! Not a relaxing evening at all, we asked to sit outside and told that there was nothing left as it was all booked - when we booked we were not given the option for asking for an outside table, which would have been so much more pleasant.

We've been here several times and it's always a great meal. I think they're very reliable this way. We shared the Chateaubriand which was fantastic. We had the truffle fries and haricot verts and both were terrific. Truly a great meal.

We like Zinc’s but Saturday at 5 minutes to 6 pm,I received a call saying our 6:30 PM reservation was. Cancelled....😮It was tough finding a replacement place for our guests and us👎🏼I Am surprised that Zincs haven’t called and offered some sort of gift card ....apologizing for the inconvience
The reason given was a broken waterline.

Had a reservation came there for a nice meal with another couple for my wife’s birthday. They told us they had problems and we could only get cold food. Ruined our whole evening since it was Saturday night and we couldn’t get another reservation. They did not even give us the courtesy of a phone call earlier in the day so we would have had time to make a reservation at another restaurant. Horrible

Good food but surprisingly not as good as the smaller and less ambitions Chez Vous on Scottsdale Road. Zinc is what it's always been - legitimate French food in a place that does not have much of that but over-priced.

We came for Easter dinner and had a fabulous meal. Our server, J.R., was fun and conversational and offered great insights on everything from wine to dessert. We split a house salad (good call), each had steak (my husband had the pepper sauce, I had the red wine reduction, both were outstanding) and finished by sharing the beignets, which came with blackberry and caramel sauces and fresh whipped cream (so good!)

We were seated on a hidden garden veranda toward the back of the restaurant and the ambience was really nice. I would definitely request seating out there while the weather is still cooler. Overall, we had a relaxed, enjoyable evening and a memorable meal.

It was Easter and maybe they were short handed so service was slow Food came before the drinks and drinks were ordered early. Salad was dry and maybe was sitting out a long time before served which is never really the case at Zinc.

We have been multiple times and all times have been positive and nice experiences. In our last dinner, service was very slow and inattentive, water empty a couple of times, and just non engaging...additionally the steak was a horrible piece (very tough and too much fat for a NY). Waiter never asked about the steak, so I didn’t complain, but for $40, I truly felt ripped off. Not sure I will go back, even after going 4x in the past.
