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.

What a memorable evening. Service was outstanding! Food was outstanding! I had the filet mignon and mashed potatoes. Sitting outside was outstanding! Wish it was in my home town and I could frequent more often.

The noise level on the patio was deafening - I asked manager if we could turn it down a bit, he said no. Two tables come by and thanked us for trying - they found it way too loud too!

It was an outstanding and wonderful celebration of our 60th anniversary. They chose a lovely table next to the Tour d' Eifel in the center of the room. Our waiter, Andrew, was very professional but friendly. We all had the chateaubriand dinner and it was perfectly done and delicious. We all enjoyed chocolate souffles for dessert. A lovely anniversary dinner to remember. Belle Topp

It took forever to get our food, probably 45 minutes or so. My hanger steak was cold, the plate was cold. All in all, It was not a good experience. I always liked Zinc bistro, but it has slipped.

We have been going there for 15 years and this meal was excellent- one of their staples, the flank steak with pepper sauce was the best ever- additionally, our server was able to get the kitchen to modify their recent years lyonnaise type spinach salad to what used to be their actual lyonnaise salad with only frisée lettuce, and it was as good as it was years ago and as good as the real mc coy that I have had in Lyon itself- why did they ever change to the boring spinach version? We are glad that the quality is still there! Bon appetit

I like Zinc Bistro. While the cheese board was enjoyable there was very little cheese for the price. We opted for the 3 cheese option, but the cheeses were so small. After finishing it we asked to add 2 more cheeses to the 5 option, but were told that wasn't not allowed. So we had to order another 3 cheese board. Plus, it only came with very few accompaniments.
The $10 glass of cab was a delicious value.
Steak was very good as was the chocolate souffle.
My complaint w/this restaurant is they need a bigger menu.

Zinc Bistro NEVER disappoints! I usually come here for lunch on special occasions with my boss or coworkers, so coming here for dinner is out of the ordinary for me. However, Zinc was running a social media promotion and selected my entrée (Sole Meunière) for their ”Classic French Friday” feature, and I just HAD to try it. It was so delicious, and beautifully presented. Our server was very friendly as well. Zinc will always be one of my favorite restaurants.

We had a table in the greenhouse which was quieter than inside the restaurant or outside seating. The halibut excellent. We always have at least one meal at Zinc Bistro when we are in town. The wait staff is very professional and very knowledgeable of the wine list as well as the menu.

If you haven't been to Zinc Bistro's "French Friday" you're missing a GREAT culinary opportunity. This weeks feature was Coq au vin and it was delicious! We paired with a wonderful Burgundy (Zinc has a great wine list) and had a very enjoyable evening!

My husband and I love coming to Zinc Bistro for a special occasion. We came recently for our anniversary. The food is always so delicious. We came at lunch time and had a charcuterie platter that was as beautiful as it was delicious! I had the Croque Madam which was filling and absolutely delicious! The bread was toasted just perfectly and the creamy sauce and melty cheese were perfection! We rounded out our meal with the chocolate soufflé and espresso. Our waiter Shane was attentive and did a great job! Overall wonderful lunch experience! Can’t wait to come back!

French Friday at Zinc Bistro is a real treat. Each Friday they highlight a traditional French dish. During this visit it was Beef Bourguignon and it was some of the best I've ever had! Do yourself a favor and make a reservation at Zince Bistro. You won't be sorry!

Our first time at this restaurant. Our server Frankie was excellent. We loved the octopus appetizer. The flat iron steak was tender and rare. Got a complimentary soufflé for my wife’s birthday. The iced tea was flavored and was very good. We’ll come back.

We go to Zink all the time
Love the atmosphere and food
However last Friday we decided to for your new Friday night special
It was duck
My husband loves duck and will always get it wherever we go and it’s on the menu
That duck was so disappointing
It was very chewy
Kind of a bummer since we were excited about your new feature
I had flat iron steak and it was out standing
We alway love the food at this place and for sure will come back
Just that duck was just so disappointing
Thx
