Bar Zin came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. The ambiance is outstanding, the food is fantastic, the menu variety is tantalizingly unique, and the wines are superb. Our party of nine was graciously accommodated by an excellent waitstaff, unfailingly gracious even though we...More

We met two sets of friends here last night and are shooting ourselves that we haven't visited more often. We had one unfortunate dining experience here some years back with a large family group, but it was on a holiday. We'd "discounted" for that but...More

We have eaten dinner here several times, and it is reliably excellent. Menu is always fun to enjoy - fresh ingredients and wonderful preparations. Nice ambience - upscale but not stuffy. Not really for kids. We recently moved to Amelia Island, and enjoy the restaurant...More

Full house at lunch but not too noisy. The wait staff are attentive. Burger came with fries but menu made it seem sides were a la carte. Next time, would clarify and ask for a healthier side.

Always a favorite, but their Restaurant Week menus were too good. Both of us had the roasted red pepper soup that was wonderful. Dinner entree was chared salmon over sweet potato and chorizo with green beans, way too good! Deserts were great as well.

BarZin is close to where we always stay on Amelia Island and never disappoints. Every time we have eaten there, the meal is always good. During the warm months, they have a nice outdoor seating area that is great for a romantic evening. Seafood dishes...More
