The food was terrific. The ambiance was nice with our table facing the lake giving us a nice view. Being from out of town now I forgot that many NJ restaurants are BYOB and therefore was surprised they didn’t have wine. Our waiter Dennis was very friendly and knew the menu well and was able to answer any question related to any of the dishes.

Great food and service. There appeared to be a problem with the kitchen hood/vent system when we came in, as the place was very smoky which made it hard to breathe. Overall, great food and will return!

Although this has been a favorite restaurant over the years, we were quite disappointed in the fact that we were charged $3.50 extra for using a credit card. This is a relatively upscale restaurant for the area and the prices reflect this. We do not carry that much cash with us. Obviously a few dollars is not a whole lot, but it just felt wrong.
This, in addition to the echo in the new location, which makes it hard to hear one another, will probably make us hesitant to come as often as we used to.
It’s really unfortunate because we do like the food and the staff.

Zinna's Bistro
Responded on February 11, 2020

Thank you for dining with us. Unfortunately family owned businesses such as ourselves are no longer able to absorb the fees the credit card companies charge us. We are forced to pass along the cost in order to stay in business. We hope you will dine with us again.

Although the food and service were as wonderful as in the old location, we found the new location a lot less cozy. It was difficult to have a conversation because the music was a bit loud and the room was very echo-y

A lovely atmosphere, but quite noisy . The mussels were quite small and overdone. The meat we ordered was overdone. We ordered one dinner medium and another medium rare, but unfortunately both came out well done.

Short ribs with bacon marmalade was very delicious and a nice size portion
Caesar-salad was crispy with fresh croutons but only 1 anchovy. Chicken piccata was good with lemon capers and artichoke hearts
I am glad I ordered moms carrot cake it was moist with coconut and delicious cream cheese icing.
The restaurant moved to a new location very pretty and modern interior
