I thought this place was just average. Each course missed the mark for me - duck confit rolls should have been fried, in my opinion, to give them a crisp element, beef stew had a sauce that needed to be degreased more and the mashed potatoes underneath had too much butter - so it was fat upon fat. Creme brûlée... More

We ate here last summer, and it was good, not great (although the mussels appetizer and the chocolate bread pudding were wonderful). Went back again this summer - what a difference. Ordered the same mussels. No garlic toast garnish this time (frites instead, which, while pretty good, were too much food for an appetizer), the mussels were tiny, and the... More

This place is a joke and defines folie à trois. It's clients are as pretentious as the wait staff. The food comes close to being good but falls short on quality and quantity. Please visit the place if you require a good laugh. Cheers.

Responding to a review like this is difficult because it's more of an opinion than a legitimate review. Here at Bistro Zinc we are always happy to accommodate our diners to make sure they have a pleasant dinning experience However, Blair J has labeled our staff, as well as our clients as pretentious. Which is obviously a baseless assertion. More

I was disappointed by our dinner at Zinc. The food was good, but not interesting and in many cases lacking in flavor. The service was extraordinarily slow. When we raised the issue the waitress and manager were not responsive or willing to do anything to make up for the problems. I should note that the room is beautiful and the... More

My wife and I had drinks and dinner on Saturday, July 5, 2014. Nice bar area with no TV's, a nice touch. Modest but high-end liquor selection. Very lovely bartender. Don't know her name. Tall, slim, brunette. It was quite busy. James Taylor was playing Tanglewood so Lenox was all abuzz as it always is when he plays. Great atmosphere.... More

I had a wonderful meal at Zync. The food was very good - we shared a bunch of dishes and the restaurant was so accommodating and split everything onto two plates. The restaurant is also very cute and fits so nicely into the New England town.

We had friends here for a couple of days from North Carolina. As we thought about where to take them it was suggested that we try Bistro Zinc in Lenox. Well we did and we were not disappointed. The food was wonderfully prepared and the service was excellent. Need I say more!

Zinc is a charming restaurant divided into two sections: the bar that has the traditional zinc covered bar and the light airy restaurant. The menu includes cpq au vin, pork schnitzel & boeuf bourgignon. Our party tried alo three and found them delicious. The only drawback (while good) was the slow service. The waitress indicated that some staff were no-shows.... More

Bistro Zinc is a beautiful place, a touch French-bistro-looking but actually more modern and spare, with lovely vases of flowers to enhance the clean look of pale wood, zinc (yes, on the windowsills and the bar) and retro black and white tiled floor. The food is pretty too although we felt the chef had a bit heavy hand on the... More
