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.

    One of our favorite date spots. Eating at 2 PM we missed the lunch crowd and ended up with the Garden room to ourselves. Oysters & Prosecco, shared steak frites, and chocolate soufflé with French press. A perfect day!

    Food spectacular. Duck well prepared and Caesar Salad as good as I’ve had. Service extremely weak. Somewhat inattentive. Worst of all, a yapping dog uncontrolled by owner. Why allow this on an upscale restaurant? Still, loved the food and ambiance.

    Nice French bistro setting, but $50 for a dozen oysters is a little bit much. The rest of their prices followed suit. Unfortunately the Flat-iron steak was very tough, the duck undercooked on the inside. The steak tartare was very good. With those prices, I was shocked that they did not offer corkage if you wanted to bring your own bottle. The waiter tried but was turned down in spite of the fact that we not only offered to pay corkage, but to also buy an identical bottle of the same wine from the restaurant. We were regulars there when they opened in 1999, but sad to say, we probably won't be back. If a restaurant wants to charge premium prices, they need to deliver a premium experience.

    We had great lunch. Started out with oysters from Nova Scotia and Washington state the Mignonette is so tasty and great with the best bread. The Bottle of house red Boudreaux was medium-bodied. I love their MOULES MARINIÈRES with string frites. We had to get dessert Beignets, crème brûlée and press coffee.

    Zinc Bistro never disappoints. The stock for French onion soup is back to its old quality. Thankful for that. Pate maison was good and so was the beef tartare. I had the short ribs, they were good as well. Will return

    Server couldn’t be bothered and seemed absolutely miserable. When I asked for a wine list she just gave me the most evil eye and seemed so bothered that I asked. I was a server and you never know what someone is going through but this was at a different level.

    This was our 2nd time. We requested the courtyard, as it is where we were seated the first time and really liked it. It makes you feel as if you have been transported to a European secret garden! I have some annoying food allergies and our server was SO helpful in making sure I had a meal that I wanted and could eat! It was a beautiful evening. We will be back..

    Our server, Ashley was fabulous. Her knowledge of the menu, wine list and answering all our questions was first class. She told us she had worked at Zinc Bistro for 10+ years and it showed. What a professional, which made our dining experience that much more enjoyable. The food was outstanding and I to walked into the kitchen later to congratulate the chef in charge, Jesus. My Duck Confit was the best I have ever eaten and I'm quite the confit aficionado. Oysters were delightful and served correctly, still attached (to ensure the Oyster was from THAT shell) and not fake. Quality French Champagne, Veuve Clicquot by the glass is rare and was outstanding. My wife said her Gnocchi was a little too firm but enjoyed it none the less. If French food and wine is your thing, Zinc Bistro has the best atmosphere and is the best restaurant in Scottsdale/Phoenix.

    We've dined at Zinc many times in the past few years. This time we had hoped to treat our house guests to a special experience. However. The oysters two people in our party ordered made them both sick. Sorry, we won't be going back again.

    Our first visit and I will definitely return. We sat in the garden where we felt transported with the sounds of the fountain, the birds and the twinkle lights. Lovely, busy but not loud just enough to feel drawn in. Started with the french onion soup which was hot and full of flavor. Shared a chicken basil sandwich served on the most delightful rustic bread. The flavor was perfect. Added an order of truffle fries which were crispy and needed no seasoning though they were served with a choice of 3 sauces. Finished with the beignets and a cafe. Brilliant. Absolutely recommend.
