Delicious Food!

We had lunch here, and loved it! I got the Zinc salad, which was refreshing and healthy! We stayed at Shade so in the morning, they offer a beautiful breakfast, complete with fresh beet juice!

A group of us were in town for work so we decided to make this our last-night dinner. We checked out the menu online and were impressed with what we saw so off we went! Upon arrival we were told there was a benefit going on but that they could seat us outside - they had heaters going so this... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Zinc@Shade. Reviews such as yours only help us learn and grow. I would like to start off by apologizing that your experience at Zinc was anything less than perfect. We are fortunate enough to have many large parties but this is no excuse that other guests shouldn't have the best service possible.... More

Usually make my way here a few times a month on a Friday or Saturday. Really great place to grab a few drinks and great food. Zinc has a fantastic vibe and the service is always spot on as well.

I sat in the lounge but I would like to come back and try to sit on the terrace for dinner. Looks like a great spot for a date! The lounge had a great bar scene. There were great finger foods to go with my Moscow Mule. Service was on point. The waitress recommended the Short Rib Tacos and I... More

one of the best lunchtime salads I've had. Great asian style tuna and hamachi salad with avocado and citrus dressed salad in a cucumber ribbon bowl. Just super. Could eat it again and again.

Great food, great location, and tasty cocktails! Service was good too. I had dinner and drinks here with two colleagues when we were in town for a meeting. We sat outside. It had an energetic atmosphere.

We are regulars here and will rave about the weekend breakfast/brunch. Great with kids, couples or solo. Gustavo, Polo and the rest of the staff take wonderful care. Recommend highly the spicy scramble, any of the omelettes and the tacos if later in the day. Easy relaxed atmosphere is great to relax for an hour or two on a Saturday... More

I love Zinc at Shade ... food is very foodie worthy, but a big bonus ... most people just don't think of Shade as a restaurant ... but the food is great! My favorite is breakfast and brunch though. The reason, you get a really high end foodie breakfast that's incredible, it's usually not too crowded, and it costs no... More

Was meeting a friend for lunch so we chose Zinc! We both ordered salads and they were excellent. Fresh ingredients and large portions. Drinks were good too :) Would highly recommend Zinc if you are looking for a fun place for business or pleasure.

Menu is tasty. Really like the fusion taco choices. The outdoor seating ambiance is really nice for having drinks and appetizers by the bar too!
