A large group of us were here during a conference -- 37 in all. They were able to accommodate us with no problem. They gave us a pared-down menu with four courses. The food was excellent. I had the salmon and it was delicious. The...More

Impeccably cooked, delicious food, friendly service, you have to try the artichokes and the salmon! And take your waiter's recommendation on the wine!

I like the restaurants look, friendly staff but food was just ok. Not really worth coming there for a special occasion. Definitely overpriced.

The most impressive thing about Zinc is the inventive desserts, elaborate confections with interesting flavor combinations miles above the usual ho hum offerings. The tuna main course is a generous serving of sushi quality fish with tasty spring rolls and a variety of sauces. Salmon...More

We have been to Zinc before and always enjoyed the electisism. But this time it was ridiculous and not practical as well as hard to eat! Too much deep frying which lent itself to rather "greasy" foods. Quite surprising! Our waitress barely smiled and explained...More
