I really enjoyed the ambiance, the charming service and the delicious food here. If you have no ethical problems you must try the seared foie gras appetizer prepared in whatever way the chef chooses to do it that day. A perfectly seared slice of melting goodness on super crispy buttery toast accompanied by kumquats and crispy cipollini onion rings was... More

We ate off the nice lunch menu, the food was very good. We had mussels, chicken sandwich and salads. The bread was excellent. We were on the late side of the lunch time, and were seating immediately. Service was knowledgeable and prompt. We look forward to returning on our next trip.

It started with the bread being cold, completely cold. It was not even luke warm. We were dinning with a small child and my kid was banging a spoon onto the table and the manager walked by and just grabbed the spoon out of his hand and walked away. He never mentioned anything to us about our child being loud.... More

It isn't often that you find a French bistro in a mall in Arizona but that we did find.We had reservations and despite the fact that it was ridiculously hot 106º, made it there on time. Seating was prompt and only the bar was very busy. Cocktails were a good start and interesting. I asked the bar tender to make... More

We travel to Scottsdale once a year and always make time to stop in for lunch. The zinc burger is always so good and the seasoned fries are perfect. It is a large portion of fries and can be shared between a few people. The staff is professional and nice. Highly recommend for lunch.

Excellent French food, it took me back to when I was in Normandy. Pricy, very pricy, but very worth it. Excellent staff service too.

My husband and I dropped in to Zinc Bistro for lunch yesterday (Sunday) without a reservation. We were actually on our way to a nearby restaurant but had parked closer to Zinc so decided to give it a try. We were lead to a centre of room table nearer the back of the restaurant. I asked if we may be... More

We had a very nice lunch here. However, we came based on looking at the menu on their website which we discovered was not current. Some menu items had changed and others had increased in price...so take that into consideration before going. My husband had a main course seafood dish with risotto which was beautifully presented and I had the... More

I was appalled at how I was treated by the staff at this restaurant. I arrived to celebrate my birthday lunch with my elderly mother just before 11:00 am when the restaurant was scheduled to open for lunch. We were pretty much shoved out the unlocked door by a classless server tucking her shirt into her pants and exposing herself... More
