Great food, cool space, but wasn’t a comfortable place to dine given server, hosstess etc weren’t wearing masks. If all the staff was wearing masks we would definitely go back!

Hostess was incredibly rude. It was clear there was no communication between the staff, which led to us being reseated after we had to Ask to be moved inside because it began pouring rain...
The hostess came over again while the server was also speaking- and kept banging on the table and waving her hand at me instead of maybe tapping the server and getting his attention. She told us she needed the table and we had to move, even though she just sat us there, and then just walked away. Just super rude and completely ruined our experience.

Nice place, great ambiance. If you're looking to take your time dining, tell them ahead of time so you're not rushed. Also mention to your waiter you want the food spaced out in courses, otherwise they just bring everything out as it's finished. Other than that, nice experience, will be going again.

Been there a few times. Has always been great. This time, service was horrible. Drinks too forever and showed up with half melted ice spheres. 2 of the 4 of us hadn’t been there. They weren’t impressed. Went back for breakfast this morning. And you forgot my order. When I asked, the manager brought me the wrong item. I ate it anyway. Was with another set of friends. All 3 of which were talking about their bad experience with you guys. Not great. Not normal either.

Excellent service, and nice ambiance. Ordered bunch of appetizers and entrees to share and loved each bite. The drinks were also great. Got a Manhattan first and wanted a boulevardier but the server didn’t have it on the cocktail menu; so, I had to order a Negroni and aske to substitute a Japanese whiskey instead of Jin, delicious 🤤

The Music is VERY VERY LOUD. The hostess was very nice and did everything to make sure we were seated comfortably. The waitress was very friendly and took our order quickly so we could get the happy hour prices.

We found that we were shouting and having difficulty hearing each other so we asked if the music could be turned down. Our waitress made the request and we could hear someone play around with the volume, but it was not turned down. Immediately the music got more aggressive.

2 people told us that the volume of the music is part of the ambiance. I have to assume that Zinque caters to providing music for a bar crowd rather than those who prefer to enjoy conversation with their drinks and dinner.

I love this restaurant. We went for dinner last night, but the restaurant part was pretty full, so we decided to eat at the bar. Fun and inviting bartenders paved the way to interesting conversations with the people around us. In fact, we were having such a good time that we didn't even order dinner until about 90 minutes after sitting down. Mark, the bartender was a show on his own, and Sereia or Serina (sorry, I can't remember, but it means mermaid) was very sweet and made a mean Martini!
Food = delicious. We split our meal, so the short ribs pappardelle and roasted brussel sprouts. The short ribs were so delicious, I ignored the veggie and devoured the ribs. Fantastic! So glad to have a great restaurant within walking distance. I will be back!

Not sure whether you all are suffering the grand opening blues, or it’s a matter of being understaffed. Pick up the slack, and will be back

My reservation was for 9:00 pm; I arrived at 8:45 pm and was seated promptly by the hostess. By 9:25 I was still waiting to be greeted and assisted by a server, I had to ask a buss boy to bring water for the table and to send someone over as I was ready to order and was tired of waiting. By 9:30 the waitress responsible for our section of the restaurant had already taken orders for two larger parties that had arrived later than me. I tried with all my might to be patient but nearly 40 minutes of waiting was entirely unreasonable. By 9:35 the waitress was still a no show and so I left. I cannot believe that a reservation is entirely meaningless. For a Friday night the restaurant wasn’t packed or busy so I cannot understand why I had to wait that long to even get water. It was a birthday well spent, I guess. LOL.

Pleasantly surprised as I once went to their prior location on Venice and the menu was much more limited. The food and their portions are fantastic and provide great value. The grilled shrimp appetizer was great and generous, The Basque Chicken fabulous and the Moules Frites very flavorful. Our server was also delightful. And ample parking in the Ross parking lot. My only criticism is that the wine list was pricey - cheapest white wine is $52. Also, I absolutely refuse to read a menu with those stupid QR codes - makes for an unrelaxing dining experience zooming in and out and up and down on a menu. However, our waitress happily provided me with a paper one. Can't wait to return and also to see the attached marketplace.

Lovely ambiance, great vibe. Cocktails were phenomenal, with decent happy hour pricing. Food was truly subpar. Paté de campagne tasted like liverwurst (nothing like Paris or Montréal) and oysters were tasteless and shucked very poorly (each one had to be detached from the foot by us at the table and most were mangled). The quiche lorraine was extremely greasy with an almost sweet crust—but definitely the closest to what we ate in France. The french fries were awesome. Overall, I probably won’t go back for dinner as this meal was not impressive, but I would go for cocktails and french fries, olives, or other bites. The ambience is truly awesome and the service was quite nice.

Nestled between Ross and Barry's gym, Zinque manages to make that all go away once you enter their patio. The restaurant itself is lovely, with a large bar and a great wine list. We started with the Smoked Salmon Tartine, which could have been a meal in itself. It was perfection, with generous pieces of salmon on legendary Poilâne bread. I had Moules-Frites in the classic white wine and Pastis broth with thin, crispy fries perfect for dunking. My hubby had the Ravioli. I had a bite and they were delicious. Dessert was the raspberry tart with port. Everything I could have wanted. Our server was very personable and efficient. All in all, a perfect birthday dinner. Will def be coming back. Soon.

Hi, It was a Birthday Celebration and at the end after everything was paid for and several guest left, the server came up to the birthday girl stating she need to pay for a beverage. The server seemed very out of it, not present or focused. She forgot serveral items and needed to be remind about things several times. I believe it's important to serve your guest well. Thank you.
