Good Meal but Mixed Reviews

Four of us went here on a Friday night. The service was good. The divers scallops with rock shrimp was outstanding. So was the grouper. Two of us had the hangar steak which was nicely cooked to order and delicious. However, it was heavily peppered and one of us found it a bit overwhelming. The... read more

Visited here while shopping at Kierland Mall. Lots of great restaurants in the area and this one is no exception. Short wait for lunch.

A perfect New York, Parisian style bistro if that's what you love, as we do. Wonderful to sit outside for lunch and people watch. Great, bubbly atmosphere inside. It's hard to resist the crab salad or the truffle fries. Good wine list too, even by the glass.

My daughter and I dined here on a Monday night recently on a short escape to the desert after Christmas. Even thought it was Monday, things were busy and a reservation is a very good idea (we had one). We started off with the Spinach salad and the crab crepe. Both were wonderful, but we did have to remind our... More

Great service and very good restaurant. We were lucky to have Frankie for a waiter. He was very helpful and lots of fun. We were not aware that the lunch menu and dinner menu were so different. He was able to get a few of his favorite dishes which weren't on the lunch menu. The mussels were great and so... More

We ate there for lunch. The service was very good and the sandwiches and salads were first rate. After lunch they served great coffee in a French press.

Very pleasant place to have real French bistro food. The food was excellent and tasted like in our favorite small bistros in Paris. The service was excellent as well and the prices were very good for the value. I can recommend the Croque Madame!

Zinc is in Kierland Commons, an upscale, pretentious, contrived trendy, crowded ritz strip mall in Scottsdale. Compared to its neighbors, Zinc creates an atmosphere that is more authentic and perhaps even homey and comfortable. It feels "French" (to an American who has never been to France). The food is very good, with a reasonable selection. We had the Chateaubriand, which... More

We've been wanting to try different French Restaurant and Zinc Bistro was it. We made dinner reservations through Open Table for a Saturday night. When we arrived, we were greeted and seated right away. I did observe that the front of the restaurant which had a bar and a few table was extremely loud. We were directed toward the middle... More
