Locally owned and operated, ZINC brasserie is a French-inspired restaurant that strives to provide fresh, delicious food, attentive service, and a warm atmosphere. The ingredient driven menu changes seasonally, with great features available nightly.
The Hearth Tavern can be found at ZINC, and is a casual tavern setting with an open view to the kitchen and the wood-stone pizza oven. Walk-in seating in the Tavern and on the Patio.
The full menu is available by reservation in the main dining room, and the tavern offers up an abridged version of that menu, with all of the pizzas available.

The restaurant was nice and warm on a -3 degree evening! Everything was good. The plating of the food was outstandingly creative. The portions were nice size. The taste was good. It is a hidden gem that you can not recognize from the street. You must enter and be surprised.

We had a very enjoyable dinner with a quiet atmosphere. We ordered our favorite appetizers of Lobster Bisque and oysters on the half shell. I ordered the handcrafted cocktail, cranberry martini, which was wonderful. The Surf and Turf and the Filet Mignon meal were also fabulous. We were not disappointed with the food or the wonderful staff.

They over all have great food. The surf in turf is a very tiny portion and the steaks are not flavorful at all.

The food was amazing from appetizer, entree and dessert. The restaurant was a little louder than I would have liked this time but that was mainly b/c there was a larger table of people. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs and the food came out quickly and was awesome.

Amazing place. The staff was extremely friendly. We went later in the evening for my husband's birthday. When we had desert the waitress even placed a candle in desert and wished him happy birthday.

We were excited to try Zinc for the first time and came away a bit disappointed. The escargot was completely lacking garlic, the entrees were expensive, but not that special and at the end of our dining experience, our server was nowhere to be found. We eventually had to ask another server for assistance and never did see our server again. For a place that markets itself as top level fine dining, we were disappointed.

Food, service and atmosphere is always top notch whether at Hearth or the more formal Zinc. Never been disappointed.

Heard a friend mention it so decided to try it out. Was very pleased, called friend and thanked him for "name dropping" lol. Very cozy, not a huge crowd atmosphere. Service was great and the food offering were some that are not on every menu in our locale. Chef does a great job, and ingredients are the best. * Will go back !
