About Zinc Bistro

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.

After seeing Zinc Bistro on Food Network on, I think, Best Thing I Ever Ate I decided I had to go try their French Onion Soup. It was touted on the show as being superb. Well, not so much for me. I prefer a more beefy broth flavor and this had a sweet finish. I couldn't even eat half of it. But I had started with the crab crepe and OMG it DEFINTELY was superb. I will say service started out a little bumpy. After promptly being brought water, no waiter in sight for 5 mins. I asked someone to send the waiter over. He came in a couple of mins with the excuse that he had been making coffee. After that, the guy was a rock star and checked on me frequently and got the 2 glasses of wine out quickly both times. I already have a reservation there for Valentine's Day and am looking forward to it...except for trying to find parking but that's another story.

Zinc Bistro maintains its consistency year after year after year. Just a consistently good French restaurant. I always look forward to a meal at Zinc Bistro.

We haven't been to Zinc Bistro in a while and we realized what we were missing.
I had their fish special and it was a flaky white fish that was excellently prepared. The sauce was very light and not overpowering but extremely tasty.
The house "greens" said was also delightful and left room for the main course. My wife had the prime flat iron steak which was prepared to her liking.
Service was just right. Our server was their when we needed her but also gave us our "space" during dinner.
We'll be back!

While vacationing in Scottsdale we had a late night dinner there. The French onion soup is fantastic--it tastes like it has about a barrel of sherry in it. The mains (duck and chicken) were excellent takes on traditional French cuisine. For what it is--a bistro tucked into a shopping center--it's quite good.

Great experience, especially the service! We were seated near the kitchen which was the only negative. Food was delicious, most notable was the mussels! Busy side station. We recommend asking for a specific table away from kitchen and service area.

Atmosphere is awesome.
Service was good.
Food came luke- warm and was nothing special. Steak flavorless and tough.
The salad cost $12 and was literally only field greens and dressing.
Nothing special or memorable.
Oh, the bread and butter were very good!

One of our favorite places to dine! It's almost to a science, the consistency is that good. This visit I encountered the beef cheeks; a heavenly braised dish that just melted in your mouth. Inspired dishes classically prepared to please any palate that wonders its way.
Superb!

I don’t like to write negative reviews. That being said this was an overpriced and poorly executed meal. Specifically the iberico pork was overcooked and so salty bordering on inedible. The scallop dish was beautifully presented but overcooked and rubbery. The risotto and the scallops were under seasoned. A shame really but for the price the food underdelivered to say the least

The restaurant was very crowded and noisy. I couldn't hear the hostess ask my name. We were seated in a courtyard area (our favorite location), but I felt squeezed into our table. There were 2 large, noisy tables next to us. It took awhile to get waited on and we did not get our entrees for an hour after the order was taken. The waiter was very pleasant and not to be blamed for anything. It just seemed there were too many diners for the restaurant to handle. The noise level and some of the crowded feeling was part of the nature of the restaurant. This was a favorite restaurant of ours, but it shall be placed in the "don't rush back" category for awhile.
