We loved Zinqué! The service was terrific as was the food. We were all thrilled and since it’s within walking distance, I think it will become our local hang-out!

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.

The food was good, however not brought to our table at the
same time. Therefore they had to wait for my Burger to arrive.

Service wasn't great.

We each ordered 2 glasses of wine apiece at Happy Hour price $4.00 off
each glass.

When the bill came they did not take off the discount. The waiter then had to"fixed it" but didn't take off enough.

Not a great first visit..

The restaurant is beautiful......the food was amazing.

I have to the restaurant when it was on Abbott Kinney several times so I will go back....BUT....there was a party on Sunday evening and they had a DJ. I love music and I adore loud music but this was over the top and rude to everyone else in the restaurant. You could not hear yourself think let alone hear the people you were out with.

As I said I will go back and try again....I do think this was an isolated incident.....I hope!

The food was exceptional and patio was perfect. We indulged in the happy hour wine specials and shared a few dishes from the dinner menu. Steak Frites and Raviolis Gratin were our favorites! I’m still thinking about the Leek and Gruyère Quiche and trying to convince myself not to go back for a second round today! We’ll be back again and can’t wait to try more of their menu.

To say the food is not carefully cooked is a vast understatement. Grilled Branzino properly crispy on outside but very undercooked inside - had to leave 40% of meat. Same with steak ordered medium but instead came medium rare (on the rare side) but very burnt on the outside. Mentioned and showed undercooked Branzino to service staff - they said they would mention to kitchen but did not offer to take off bill or offer any compensation.

Food and wine were delicious, but the happy hour food portions are quite small. Servers were friendly and prompt. It’s a beautiful design and worth checking out. We’ll be back again.

I went to Zinque in Venice at the old location and also the downtown location. So already a fan.
The tuna tartar was amazing!!! The cheese plate could have had more variety of flavors. Seemed like a lot of stinky gooey types of cheese. The place is so pretty. I will go back for sure.

This will be our new neighborhood go-to. The menu is wonderfully, refreshingly "simple" meaning not easy but classic, including new approaches to classic French cuisine. The space is gorgeous and casual, the music did not drown us out and the service was quick and impeccable. Hats off to manager, Noel(le?)

My only comment is that the noise level is a little higher than I would prefer. That being the case I would choose a table on the outer rim of the patio. One other comment is the price of wine by the glass is too high.

Good food
The waiter was terrible. I eat out a lot and our waiter
was the worst I have ever encountered. Impatient, rude
and unpleasant. I was with 4 friends and everybody
was shocked at his behavior. For instance, I asked him
What desserts they offered and he said read the menu,
I said, oh you have a lot and he said four but I guess four is too many for him to tell us. So unprofessional!

Zinqué is a cool spot in Venice that has great ambiance. The food is good. I have not had anything there that knocked my socks off, but I have never been disappointed. With the combination of great atmosphere, great service, and good food, you have a safe, go-to spot in my book. I’ll be back.

Cool little spot. Service was lack luster. We ordered an app with our wine and it took 30 minutes for someone to come back to the table and ask if we wanted to order food, turns out our appetizer was never even ordered. I was catching up with family so we weren’t in a rush but imagine taking 30 minutes to greet a table in addition to the app order not being placed by the other person that took our drink order. On a good note, the whole branzino was divine, I will be back for the ratatouille but the brussel sprouts were cold and bland.

Very average experience.
Obviously, dining outdoors under a tent in a restaurant parking lot is less than ideal, so it is what it is lol.
Food was solid, no complaints.
Was happy to see they had Estella Daura gluten-free beer. This is one of the best GF beers I've found over the years, and I've never seen a restaurant have it on their menu, so cheers to that.
For the restaurant: my other fav GF beer is "Glutiny" pale ale by New Belgium ;)
