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.

Food was terrific; as usual! The restaurant was very busy and the kitchen was backed up. Took quite awhile to get our food but we used that time to visit with family we hadn’t seen for over a year. The biggest issue we had was the noise level. It’s so loud and the acoustics are so poor, we could barely hear each other. I will certainly return for the great atmosphere and food but will probably put this restaurant as my go to lunch location as the noise level is far less at that time.

This is such a special place. Close your eyes and you are in a bistro in France. Using Open Table really helps- you always get a great table!

We had an amazing experience! The food was delicious, and our server, Hoak (not sure I’ve spelled that right), treated us like we were the only guests in the restaurant. We had a blast and will be back for sure. We love Zinc!

Keeping in mind that I ordered the scallops the food was average. The scallops were dry and lacked flavor. Three scallops for $45 that lacked flavor was disappointing. Overall t he food was ok but pricey.

Zinc Bistro is superb every time we go! We always ask to sit in Frankie's section. He is the most attentive and entertaining server...an absolute 10! We order the mussels every single time. They are so decadent! If you are still hungry for dessert, get the strawberry cheesecake... you won't be disappointed.

First time eating here, but won't be our last. The steaks (flat iron and hanger steaks) were cooked perfectly, were very tender, had lots of flavor and were generous portions. The wedge salad was also very good. Service was very good. The restaurant was pretty crowded for a Thursday evening, so it was a bit loud and hard to hear conversation at our table. Would have loved to try the chocolate soufflé but we were too full - maybe next time.

Everything my wife and I ordered was delicious. Although we ordered 2 roasted beet salads, our waiter told us that the salad was very large and we might want to consider sharing 1, which we appreciated. It turned out to be more than enough to share.
Our waiter was terrific throughout the meal.

Friday evening at Zinc Bistro: great food, lots of people and even more noise. Not the ideal spot for a dinner with friends if you want a conversation to be heard. I'd recommend for the food certainly, and off peak time if you are wishing for conversation.

We ordered the flat iron steaks that were recommended by the waiter. They were only warm when they arrived at the table. We asked to have them heated up and when they came back out they were still not hot. The steaks were tender and had great flavor, but just weren’t close to hot enough. The French onion soup and sides were excellent.

Great dinner for our Wedding Anniversary . Service was excellent from Frankie. He recommended the best selections from the menu. We have been dining at Zinc for our special occasions for 8 years and have never been disappointed. Thanks for another wonderful meal.
