Food was delicious!!!! Everything was great. A little loud inside but outdoor patio with heaters on was perfect. Definitely coming back again to try more great food and great wine 😊
It was very comfortable even though we just sat at the bar. And the service was excellent.
I have been a fan of Zinque from the first time I went. The food is extraordinary. They are willing to make changes to their meals per request. The people who work there are always nice and patient and willing to help make your experience comfortable and fun. There are so many wines to choose from, love that. You can have full entrees or just have a bunch of small plates. Seafood and champagne to burgers and fries. And it's very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit!
Went to Zinque for dinner with friend on a Saturday night. The rudest host I've ever encountered. Clueless servers. Mediocre, at most, food - four meals we served at different times, two of them arrived cold. Will not go back and will not recommend to anyone.
Awesome, very good food and great vibes
Food was ok. We ordered vegetables but were all so oily:(
We were not seated for 30 minutes even with a reservation, but accommodated extremely well for the wait with 10% taken off the bill and drinks on them.
Everything was fine but not amazing. Food was average and the tables on the patio are not great for dinner. They are small, high and wobbly. Only good for having drinks not eating dinner off of.
Had 6 pm reservation for 3 to celebrate my birthday. Only table was next to the host/hostess “station” by the front door. They kept reaching into our eating area to pull out the “reserve” signs, menus, etc. We suggested they place all that on the edge of our table to be less distracting. At that point, they moved us to a better table away from the host/hostess. The food is pricey and seems to be extremely a la crate, which we realized when the whole fish came with nothing else, other than lemon wedges and sauce. For that price point, there are other better restaurants. There are no desserts, other than ice cream, although there are about 7 on he menu. I’d recommend going there for a drink, not dinner.
Nice staff, simple and tasty preparations. Sometimes live music or anyone can jump on the piano as they did the last time I was there. Outdoor patio and in door seating.
Wow - I was so surprisingly impressed with Zinque! I initially wrote it off when looking for a tapas restaurant because it has a 3.5 on Yelp, but a friend suggested it over another tapas restaurant we love but have been to many times. We decided to try it and we were all very impressed! Literally every dish we got was delicious - we ended up ordering the pan con tomate, burrata and prosciutto, mushroom flatbread, le bowl with chicken and cauliflower, steak frites with chimichurri, and brussel sprouts. Everything is great for sharing and our waiter made excellent recommendations. A huge plus is that they have Oberon cabernet sauvignon on the menu! I haven't seen it at many other restaurants. My only regret is that we didn't order dessert - I was craving the flourless chocolate cake but they were totally out by the time we tried to order it. Overall, an excellent night at Zinque and we will definitely be back!
Came here with a few friends I hadn’t seen in awhile and Zinqué never disappoints. The food and wine is great as well as the service. Will for sure be back!
This restaurant was a mess. It was very loud and crowded, the food was terrible and overpriced, the seating was literally parties sitting on top of each other. Terrible experience I would never go back.
Staff is friendly , prices are really affordable and the quality is quiet high
We have been here twice in one week. The food is incredible! I particularly recommend the curry soup, tartines, flatbreads and gratin potatoes. You will not be disappointed.
If you sit on the patio make sure you are near a heat lamp, we were freezing as we were at the one table that did not have a lamp.
Second time here. Love this place. Had the same great waitress again. So nice. Attentive but never intrusive. Made great recommendations. Didn't bat an eye when I sent back the ginger beer I ordered which arrived in a glass with ice. (I wanted it neat and in the bottle). Didn't care that I had to leave our occupied table for about 30minutes to deal with an urgent matter. Very European vibe in food and service. Zinque is a go-to spot for me.
Great for groups - awesome munchies.
Delicious food with a creative flair, excellent outdoor seating, service that was both low-key and attentive, and fun people-watching! There was a good range of choices, both entrees and small plates, and the wine suggestions were excellent. Definitely a find, and we will be returning soon.
The food was good except the steak had a char on the outside which was as inedible as shoe leather. The worse part of the experience was the chairs. They were small, unpadded metal rounds with a wire torture device for a back. They were barstool height so you couldn’t put your feet on the ground to alleviate the pressure on your legs. After about 30 minutes of sitting in them my legs were going numb and my back was on fire. I had to stand for the remainder of the meal. The waitstaff was friendly but passed my table by too often for the table next to me, which had more guests, before asking if we needed anything. Perhaps just an oversight as my table was back in a corner but very annoying when I had to wait at my table which had already been cleared by the buss boy for a long time to get my check. I finally flagged the waitstaff down to ask for my check and it was very apparent by the curt reply that I had bothered the waitstaff for asking. I will never go back.
Server was totally disaffected and not helpful at all
Went for happy hour. Good wine, but very small pour IE little too expensive for happy hour. Super good waiter. Good plates. But, not happy about minimal amount of wine we got per glass.
Zinque is a perfect laid back French bistro and Bar with good wine, moules frites and charcuterie
Been going here for years. Great food. Poor service. One of these day they may figure out the later.
We tried it both for breakfast and for lunch.
The ambience is cool: cozy and a bit romantic. While the staff very nice (more in the evening that not in the morning).
The menu is varied and it can satisfy everyone's taste (from vegetarian to carnivore.
Great wine list and great music on Saturday (maybe don't go there on Saturday if you need a quiet place to talk) ;)
Great waiter Great Value Great
Good food, delightful service. What's not to like?
Always good at Zinque Try the moules frites, charcuterie, a Moscow Mule or a glass of Sancerre.
The Service is so stressed and took my plate 2x before I finished, doesn't like French restaurant!
Great food, service and overall experience sitting outside. I've been twice before inside and it was also a great place to have a glass of wine and a small meal.
Our table was not ready when we arrived. We had to wait 15 minutes. We were then given a table directly next to the front door, with people lining up next to our table. I actually saw a group of four sitting at this table , only waiting to be seated at an actual table for dinner.
We asked for a new table, and the communal table was offered as our only option, it seems to me that this place over books and does not honor the open table reservations.
Relaxed, authentic French vibe ... most friendly people, excellent food -- grilled prawns, moules, caprese salad, frites, wine ... lovely tarts for dessert.
Highly recommend ... would easily eat here every night.
The food is good. The service can be slow- I guess spotty and relaxed (but friendly). This is just a bar so one shouldn't expect a silver star dining experience, even if the prices might deceive one into thinking it is. Nothing exceptional about the place and one pays the Abbott Kinney tax !
Very slow, very small servings for the price. Charcuterie may have been more expensive than G jellina...
Zinque is an attractive bistro that serves very simple food...salads, burger quiche and sandwiches. Happy Hour has nice wine specials and good flatbread appetizers. It is very loud inside because of patrons who don't have "Inside voices" plus music. If all that appeals to you, this is a cute place with decent food and friendly service. Probably best suited to younger patrons who don't have trouble hearing over the din.
The rice bowl not quite as good as Melrose Zinque, many lacking some dressing, a bit dry.
Nice staff. Nice intérieur.
Very nice atmosphere and food. Friendly service. Good place to spend time with friends!
Food was cold. Every dish! The flatbread, ratatouille, and Brussels sprouts, all room temp or cold. Kind of lame considering the cost. Our meal was over 100 bux. For two people. At least the wine was good. I like zinque a lot and the last two times I've been there this week have been off. That's why I am numbed and writing this. Come one Zinque!
Great locals hangout for wine and food. Nice food selections including plenty of vegetarian options! Good for small parties. Seats could be more comfortable. We lingered at our table and never felt rushed. Will definitely return!
