We love upscale dining without the dress-up. We have been here once a week for 3 weeks now and have had exceptional meals each and every time. The specials are really well thought out, with a twist on the conventional. The scallops - every time - are some of the best we have ever had. All of the seafood dishes... More

Three couples went here to Celebrate Valentine's Day and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere allowed conversation and relaxation. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, and gave great recommendations. The salmon was flaky and very tasty. The red snapper and couscous delicious. The shrimp and grits very good. Because we had to wait longer than expected for our food, we were... More

We came here for the restaurant week specials and were very happy. My wife and I both had bar Zin's version of Cioppino, which included mussels, clams, scallops, and shrimp in a clear broth. Everything was fresh and delicious. Bar Zin has a huge wine list but we stuck with water.

We were here for restaurant week, staying in the Historic District. We decided to hop in the car and drive here for dinner (15 minutes) and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service charming. The menu was quite eclectic as were the beer and wine choices. All in all a great experience. If you are staying at... More

We were promptly received and seated and our waiter was right on point. We liked his candor and his recommendations and we had a very good meal. We have been here several times with a nice atmosphere and bar area. There have been occasions where we have stopped for a glass wine and appetizer at the bar as this place... More

1. This is a Bar/Bistro..... not fine dining as some sites indicate. 2. It is expensive for a bar/bistro. 3. It is noisy. 4. It has TWO rooms inside. One is a dining room and was has the bar and some tables. They claim the latter is considered a part of the restaurant but we disagree. For a comfortable evening... More

This is the other south side quaint restaurant for a nice evening of dining. The food is always great, and Tim and the crew are spot on. They cater to a more seafood palate, however, their Pecan chicken dish is awesome. We just need them to add some type of cheesecake for the dessert menu. The key lime pie is... More

My girlfriend and I come here once or twice a month. Every time we come we say we should come more often! We always start off with a scallop or oyster appetizer and my girlfriend always has any special that night that has risotto. Personally I always ask Betsy to bring me a random dish and haven't had a bad... More

Great flavor and ambiance, helpful and efficient but not cloying service. Serving size definitely adequate but not oversize, so room for small starter and shared dessert.

But, it was WONDERFUL! We went for lunch. The place is actually quite large, and we were seated in a corner seat just as you entered the restaurant. Staff was helpful and very friendly. We noted that there were many repeat customers who were known by the staff. We had wine, naturally. Nice selection of bottles and by-the-glass. I had... More
