Lovely lunch spot, great service and food selection. We had a Chef selection of 5 cheese plate and paté with yummy wine selection. The waiting staff were very attentive yet gave us plenty of time to chat and catch-up. Great ambiance and quite the place to people watch!

This charming spot includes a lovely and cool garden courtyard. Sipping cocktails and chatting over lunch is perfect, but go beyond perfection and finish up with the chocolate souffle. The staff is lovely and never allows you to feel rushed. The shopping surrounding Zinc Bistro is some of the best in the Phoenix area as well.

Zinc Bistro a taste of France in Scottsdale (Arizona). Probably the best French restaurant near Phoenix. Great food and service. Perfect located inside the mall. Max Carter (Executive Chef). Very good wine list..

I stop here for a glass of wine and a sampler of cheeses. The selection changes frequently. Served with sliced apples, jam, and crackers, it's a real treat. Service is a little sluggish, so only 4 stars

Zinc strikes just the right note...easy access in an upscale shopping center, prompt seating, friendly servers (definitely NOT French!) and the food you crave: drippy French Onion soup, butter lettuce salad, generous pomme frites with delicious dipping sauces and a monster MacCheese. Pretty good wines-by-the-glass, too.

This is a wonderful small French cafe with excellent food. Highly recommend this place for a romantic evening or a nice casual lunch with friends.

Located in a North Scottsdale open mall, the Zinc Bistro is neither a cafe nor a truly French bistro. Its rather big and open but with a large model of the Eiffel Tower in the center and French touches in the decor. But it does sport a bar and they have a casual dressing clientele (appropriate to the weather). The... More

Our absolutely favorite lunch stop. Wonderful sidewalk seating, urban indoor bar seating, a hidden interior courtyard....a place for any mood. We use the interior court for dinner and larger lunch bunches. There is an inventive menu...again, for every mood and appetite. Good cheeses, salads and small plates. Big linens, white tile floors, books and magazines about. It feels like the... More

It seemed a little out of place. There are much better lively places to go, but our group wanted the Bistro. The food was good, not really french. the drinks were not served in anything fancier than a water glass, and it was very empty.
