Been here 10 times but not in last 2 years. This was a Sunday at 5 pm in September, 2014. What a joke. Took 5 guests and had terrible service. Waited 70 minutes for only food, the main course, to arrive. It should only have taken a few minutes to prepare. Nothing special. The sun shown in the faces of... More

We ate at Zinc on very hot Saturday for an early dinner. We got to sit in front (by the bar) where you get a real bistro sense. The wine was great (great choices by the glass) and our meals perfect. I had the Ahi done just right and my husband had the evening special of sea bass. To finish... More

The food though was very good and the service was good. Very French in the US and the. signature... More

This was a pleasant jewel in the middle of the desert! Our server was very attentive but not too much so. My onion soup was so good it knocked me out! The lunch serving was a plate of three breads with a wonderful tuna salad on top with a tasty red relish (I don't remember the name because I was... More

This place came HIGHLY recommended. I was very happy with the server we had and the restaurant was nicely appointed. However, I didn't see the food being worth the hype. Yes, it was tasty, but I don't think the price and portions were in line. I also would have preferred a better seat. The people sitting next to us should... More

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
