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

Zinc has changed their menu since my last visit and the new editions are excellent. In particular, the seafood based entrees really stand out.

We ate here on Mother's Day as we were planning a bit of shopping in the afternoon. We opted for one of the outside tables to enjoy the nice day. Our service was prompt and attentive. There was a special "brunch" menu which was actually the specials of the day. The food was Excellent, one of the best tasting steaks... More

We had a great Mothers Day brunch. Great food, excellent service. One of our favorites. Not for kids, though.

This is a wonderful looking and busy restaurant. Stopped in for lunch while in Scottsdale. It is located in an area with lots of food choices. I must say that for the money I was underwhelmed by the food. We had salads and sandwiches that looked wonderful but lacked in the taste department. The service was good but the hosting... More

We came here for lunch after a long absence. The service was great and attentive. It's a fine French bistro experience, replete with the small tables, mirrors and brass handlebars. My wife had the french onion soup. Great flavor, Very cheesy, and loaded with onions. She also had the spinach salad. This was also nicely done. Wish there were 2... More

Visiting from WA State and lucky to stop for lunch. Delish cheese plates and dishes! Nice wine selection with attentive staff. Grilled chicken curry sandwiches were full of flavor and had a nice bite :-) a must side is the Frites!

The food delivery here was so quick it was like being in a fast food restaurant. Literally within less than 5 min for Halibut special, chicken and agnolotti. Food was OK -- not bad at all, but the sense of rush and desire to turn the table turned what should have been a nice experience into one less than expected.... More
