This a good restaurant and better than most around. The food is a little more innovative than the average restaurant and the food is a little more creative and with a European twist. Prices are average and ths ervice met expectations. if you want something a little on the European side such as cured meats and different salds over the... More

We had a lovely lunch here in a wonderful setting. It felt and tasted like a lunch in a Paris bistro. Portions were large and well prepared. Service was attentive and thoughtful.

Nice place in middle of Kierland Shopping Ctr., white table cloth, great service, many interesting small dishes, atmosphere very nice with exceptional service and good selection of wine, sauces are exceptional, portion sizes are small but prices are double what you might think for some dishes so small. Outside seating fills quickly. A good place to be seen with bragging... More

Thanks to Catherine, concierge at Westin Kierland for pointing me to this authentic French Bistro in the middle of the desert. Fabulous Flat Iron steak, complete with crispy shallots, pomme frites and string beans. Adding 180 ml of Beaucastel to attentive staff led to an excellent experience. Don't pass this one up.

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to Zinc Bistro. My wife ordered Croque Monsieur and love the crusty brioche with creamy leeks, melted cheese and ham. The Mornay sauce was a nice touch was a nice twist on a classic. My wife loved the shoestring fries too. I ordered the brunch flat iron steak with a fried egg and... More

The quality of the food, service and wine selections made for a great night with friends. One of the few places with Sancerre on the menu. Made my night! I highly recommend this restaurant. Well worth the price which I found to be reasonable. There were four of us in the group. Each ordered something different and none of us... More

This place is in Kierland Commons and was packed for lunch. We sat inside because the wait for an outside table was too long. We started out with the parmesan truffle fries---to die for. Very generous portion. Two of us had the shaved chicken salad and the other person had the beet salad. They were both excellent and good size... More

My wife and I had a lovely romantic dinner at Zinc on a warm delightful November evening. The patio was full so we sat inside which was perfect. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and an attentive staff of servers. Right after we sat down someone brought over water and when we asked for lemon she came back with that... More

We ate on the patio which was a very pleasant experience and fun if you also have a larger group. I had an omlet which was nondescript. I didn't hear any rave reviews from the friends I was with. I'd go there again to relax on the patio and try a different dish.

Went there for lunch with a group of retired teachers. We were seated on the very pleasant patio and the wait staff was attentive and efficient. I ordered the steak salad which was delicious but was not exactly a generous portion. Others also remarked on how scant the portions were. Asked a friend specifically about their mac & cheese dish...
