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.

    First timers. Everything was fantastic. Our bartender, Ali, was very friendly and attentive. The crab crepe was delightful (could’ve used a little salt or more sauce), wedge salad was fantastic, and the steak frites was great. Wanted to try the ricotta beignets, but we over did it.

    The place is lovely and bustling, but the noise level forced us to eat outside (it was very hot and ceiling fan didn’t help much on enclosed patio). Food was good, but portions are quite small for the money. Service overall was good, but water glasses need to be filled (as requested 3 times) more often or put a nice pitcher on the table if short-staffed.

    I love Zinc Bistro! It’s consistently excellent food, great service without being all in your space, an excellent mostly European wine list - what more could you ask? Thank you all for being consistently stellar all of these years!

    Always a delightful experience - no matter if it’s a weekday lunch or a special occasion dinner on Saturday night. The staff is warm, gracious, and friendly. The food is delicious - so consistent! We’ve been fans since our first meal in 2004.

    I love French food! I was not disappointed. Friendly staff greeted me and my waiter was jovial and engaged. I ordered the seared foie gras with a side of truffled frites. A cold glass of champagne accompanied. I loved Zinc Bistro and will be back.

    The tuna tartare appetizer is definitely one of the best tuna dishes I’ve had. Very tender and just enough spice. For entrees we had the short ribs which hubby said weee very good and nightly fish special which was good though I might have preferred a little less onion and a little more drizzle of the sauce 1 but excellent piece of fish and all beautifully presented.

    I am absolutely enamored with this restaurant. My second visit and I requested Ann (my server) she is knowledgeable, efficient, welcoming and kind. On this visit she enthusiastically recommended the Friday Special and yes it was! Tempura Shrimp on a bed of salad BUT no ordinary salad; honeydew melon, marcona almonds, mint, lettuce and other delightful items lightly dressed with a honey garlic dressing, absolutely delicious! The shrimp was cooked perfectly in the tempura style. Thank you Ann we will see you in November and we are bringing friends...I will call first to make sure you are on shift that day ;)

    Dinning outside reminded us of doing the same in Paris. The weather was perfect and food was delicious. Our waitstaff, Mayra, was very friendly and helpful in ordering. I had the beet salad and my wife had the french onion soup--both were outstanding. For our main course we split the flank steak which was made just right. A delightful dinning experience and one we plan to indulge in again.

    The food at Zinc Bistro is fantastic. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday and they brought out a delicious chocolate soufflé with a sparkler on top. Some in our party ate from the brunch menu - the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich is a must! The pastrami sandwich, French onion soup, and the Mac and cheese are must-haves. Don’t forget the crème brûlée- it is magnificent. The service and decor was on point. A definite favorite restaurant.

    Overall we loved Zinc. The Oysters were good from 3 regions, the Bordeaux I selected was great, but we came there for the Bouillabaisse and that main entry was not good. There was 2 pieces of market fish, some kind of Sea Bass, but it wasn't like the many Chilean Sea Bass I have eaten so many times and it had a few muscles, but that was about it. It was full of onions and other vegetables, but not so good and the bread on top was not great. Except for that we loved the night where we celebrated my 68th birthday and our up and coming Wedding Anniversary.
