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.

It was a very nice evening. Service was outstanding and so was the food. My only quibble is the acoustics made chatting and hearing each other challenging, but otherwise it was a lovely evening.

Highly recommended.

Zinc Bistro has been and will always be one of my favorite restaurants in Scottsdale! The menu never changes, is typically "French" (for the most part), and even with the new socially-distancing requirements for tables, the atmosphere is soothing and mellow. Am so glad they are still managing to survive in these turbulent times.

SO disappointed. I have been to this restaurant 4 times and this was the WORST experience. We were there more than 2 hours before we received our appetizer! Server checked in every 20 minutes. NEVER explained the situation, never communicated the problem or expectations etc. I literally had to express our frustration with the delay. ALSO had to discuss with the manager personally. Super disappointed. Manager comped us dessert and cocktails, but we arrived at 7:30pm with a reservation and left at nearly 11pm. I love the food, but we were the last guests to leave! I would recommend with a warning

A wonderful French bistro experience in a local shopping center. Good social distancing and all employees wearing masks. Fairly simple menu one should be able to find their options adequate but not extravagant or questionable. Great wine by the glass options. Fresh oysters usually available. Fast and very good service. Keep your water refilled or an iced tea. Prices reasonable. Salads plenty in size. Every tribe ever had was cooked perfectly

Probably one of the top 5 dining experience we’ve ever had! Every single staff member, from the hostess to the people refilling water, just everyone was fantastic and so kind! It was one of our first date nights since COVID hit, and we had an absolutely amazing time! And the food... OMG. We had mussels, flat iron steak frites with au pouivre, and scallops and every bite was delicious. We’ll be back as soon as possible! Thanks to our server Tony for making it a beautiful evening!

Zinc Bistro is very serious about keeping you safe when you choose to dine their during this pandemic. They keep everything clean and their staff wears masks the entire time. The food is simply outstanding. If you enjoy Foie Gras make sure you visit Zinc and order the Chef's Choice Seared Hudson Valley Fois Gras. It's a signature preparation that changes dailey. In the last 6 weeks I've had it 5 times (all different) and it has been out of this world delicious each time. Zinc also has the best fresh oysters in the Valley! The Truffle and Parmesan Frites are delicious. This current visit I had the rosted duck breast. Outstanding. If you're in or near Scottsdale don't miss your chance to enjoy a meal at Zinc Bistro!

We sat outside which was nice because we could have a normal conversation. Inside was much more energetic, which some people may like more. If you like quieter dining then definitely request outdoor seating.

The food was amazing. I would highly recommend the Caesar salad to start and the bouillabaisse entree. My wife had the short rib which was also excellent. We had the crème brûlée desert, which was better than most I have had before. All in all we had a wonderful date out.

We’ve walked by this place numerous times but made our first visit over the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I noted it on our Opentable reservations but no one made mention of it and didn’t ask if we were celebrating anything special. We were sat on the front patio. Having walked through the restaurant though to go to the restrooms, we’d request the back patio next time. Our waitress was friendly and personable, our food was good. We shared the three cheese board, I had the French onion soup with the wedge and my husband ordered the Le Zinc. All was delicious. I had better French onion other places, especially Paris, but it was still good. I liked the unique dressing on the wedge and my husband said it was one of the best seafood towers he’s had and a great deal for $100. We would go back again.

Average French cuisine. Bread basket, dry; wine- delicious; mussels to start, very good. Had the scallops, they were briny and not good. Also, scallops were served with very dense risotto.

This as our first time visiting Zinc - we sat outside and the atmosphere was lovely. Our server, Julia, was FABULOUS. She knew the menu well, even suggested a wine for my husband's second glass.

We tried the Crab Crepes (phenomenal) and the bouillabaisse (depth of flavor was wonderful). Enjoyed the truffle fries with three dipping sauces, and finished up with the Ricotta Beignets.

Cannot wait to go back and work our way through the menu!

We were seated and were ready the order by the time the waitress finally showed up to take drink orders (place was pretty empty when we arrived). We ordered extra crispy truffle fries as an appetizer and French onion soup for before the meal. Later, two corner tables were seated near us. They both got drinks before us... meals and checks when out came the floppy, under-cooked fries appetizer. Flat tasting onion soup... needed brandy or sherry. Meanwhile, both corner tables paid and left the restaurant as my husband had his soup and skipped the soggy fries. I did order another fries order which came through crispy (got it right).

Our food was finally served. His chicken sandwich was on a tough and rustic bread, soggy and the chicken breast was burned. 5 bites of my omelet before there was any ham.

At the end of the meal, the waitress brought my husband another coke when my glass of iced tea was just melted ice. Had to wait for her to come back in the area to step 2 feet from our table to get the pitcher of iced tea for a refill.

Maria was the waitress. And, we both saw and heard her spill my fries on the ground after she took them away to package. She brought back my omelet and fries (to go packaging) and told me she got me a fresh order of fries. I should hope so!!!
