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.

    Great service and delicious French food, a rarity in Arizona. Short ribs were delicious and don’t pass up tuna tartare.

    This is our special occasion go-to restaurant because the food is terrific. We also order the same things, & this meal was no different. My husband had the flat iron steak with madeira sauce, & I had the mussels. SO GOOD! The broth they swim in is also fantastic, & a spoon accompanies this "appetizer" to enjoy the broth, or one can soak pieces of bread in it which makes it way more than an appetizer. For dessert, we enjoyed, as usual, the chocolate soufflé. Yum!

    The food here is outstanding! Our waitress was friendly. My only complaint on our service was that no one refilled our water or asked if we wanted more drinks. We were told that we would get bread, but no bread came out. Everything we ate was wonderful. We had the bone marrow, duck, mushrooms, and cremebrulee. It is very noisy. Had a hard time hearing the conversation at the table.

    The food was amazing, but the service was sub par. The waiter didn’t check that this was a birthday special occasion reservation and therefore we were not able to get the soufflé. this was for my 30th birthday and so i was a bit sad about that.

    We ate our salads, salmon instead of steak on the steak salad and I had to salami salad. The pot of coffee was delicious. And my friend who was celebrating her birthday got the chocolate lava cake on the house. The patio has been updated and was lovely with the overhead heaters and our service was on top of everything.

    We’ve been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. Hands-down the best thing about it is the atmosphere! The lighting and the mood is very warm and inviting and there’s indoor dining and outdoor. For a more intimate romantic evening, choose the back patio. For fun people watching and outdoor atmosphere, choose the front patio, there’s always lots going on. Indoor dining is fun too and the atmosphere is warm and lively. The food is very good, and has a unique spin on a variety of dishes with a French flair. There’s something for everyone though with traditional choices like steak and Caesar salad and there’s also seafood dishes. The chef definitely likes to mix up the ingredients and presents ingredients and flavors that you don’t find everywhere. The short ribs in the Jadori chicken are both delicious! Give this place a try and don’t forget the pomfritts!

    Matt, while we have been coming for over a decade, I can finally say that the consistency of your cuisine is severely lacking. Your menu is simple but great and for many years shined with consistency in the execution of your French Bistro vibe. However, the last few times have been exponentially worse than the prior. This last time was for my birthday. While I have historically loved your moules, foi gras and crab crepe, they were beyond horrific and frankly was appalled of what was allowed to come out of your kitchen, as should you too. While this message will certainly never come across you personally so you can see with your own eyes, I want you to know that we once thought your restaurant was great, the rarity of the Valley that actually put out amazingly epic, simple yet complex, consistent food. Having many dear friends whom are amazing chefs here and across the globe, as is my husband. I am so sorry, Matt, you have destroyed the art for sheer volume and now just employ drones who have bastardized your vision. My 13 yo and 6 yo are better at execution and consistency with their craft. Love of food, which is love of life and brings together magnificence in sharing an experience to be felt and tasted with each bite. Matt, I beg of you to be better because I know you are. Respectfully, Paula
