High class area and matching food.

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... read 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.

We recently had dinner on the patio of Zinc Bistro. One of our party is intolerant to Canola oil so we asked our server Martin to make sure she was not served any food containing it. We ordered the lovely Kumomoto oysters to start. They are rare to find in Phoenix. The steamed mussels and crab legs were also delicious.... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch visiting with locals soaking up the spring sunshine noting soon the weather would become unbearbly hot and the outdoors not suitable for dining enjoyably. This afternoom was quite nice. Food is good for the price. Nice place to kick back and down a cold one. Somehow there is a nerdy snobbishness. Transparent to most, but... More

Lunch in the little patio is gorgeous and their Parmesan fries are worth the fat! Reserve a table as restaurant is usually busy. Most dishes are excellent. Lunch nicer than dinner. Staff can be a little 'up themselves'! Excellent Caparainhas! Scrummy!

After a lackluster experience a couple of years, recently decided to give another try and glad we did. Were so smitten that we dined here three times within about 6 weeks. My daughter and I began our first experience during our girl's night out, and were delighted. Fabulous French Martinis, great service (and the best woman bus person I've ever... More

This charming little restaurant in the heart of the Kierland Commons Shopping Area is a wonderful place to stop for lunch or dinner. They are known for their Truffle Fries (be sure to share), and we love their Crabmeat Salad & their Duck Confit sandwich. Very nicely appointed with a French flair & a lovely outdoor patio.

First time to Zinc Bistro in Scottsdale, turned out to be an awesome experience. Our waiter Jason, was very knowledgeable about the wine selections and the menu. He was very attentive, but not over bearing, just right! Food was excellent, French Onion soup, delicious, perfectly cooked Steak, Fresh and tasty Scallops and awesome Chicken dish. Will definitely return!
