Over the years my wife and I have enjoyed many a fine meal at Zinc, but since they lost their long time chef, the food has been mediocre to say the very least. The first time I ate a meal prepared by the new chef I ordered the BOEUF BOURGUIGNON. What came was not Boeuf Bourguignon, which is a kind... More

We had a very bad dinner at Zinc. Started with my Martini, straight up. It came, not filled to the top of the glass. It was about 2/3 filled. When was the last time you saw a Martini straight up and the glass not filled to the top? Next came the onion soup. It was quite good, thick and lots... More

The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. The food is another issue. I ordered the duck breast with some vegetables. The duck came out twice and was well done each time. The vegetables were tasteless and not seasoned. You could count the corn pieces on one hand. They say you eat with your eyes first. This was the poorest visual... More

We had both a nice, informal working lunch in the bar area and then returned for dinner. It was the best of the meals that we had in Lenox during a pleasant weekend. French Bistro-style.

We stopped in late Sunday night when most places were already closed. Lucky for us! The Zinc Bistro is attractive and the food very tasty. Our sever was friendly too. The carafe of wine was a good choice. Be sure and try this restaurant

The bistro is quite elegant and the food was tasty in this Berkshires restaurant close to Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. I enjoyed the duck breast. Service was friendly and efficient. Prices were reasonable.

Portions were very small and expensive for what they were. I will not be in a hurry to go back. Service was ok

We had a lovely lunch to celebrate a friend's 90th birthday. I had been here for dinner which is a bit pricey but delicious. The lunch menu is extensive and within the price range of most local restaurants and food and service are excellent.

The menu is creative and the food delicious. My wife and I were there and had the coq au vin and the sauteed duck breast and summer sausage. The wine pairing was solid, recommended by a knowledgeable waiter. The chef, Q, came out to say hi, which was welcome. The dessert was an apple tart that was not too sweet... More

A charming comfortable bistro in the heart of Lenox, with its own parking lot. Whether you sit in the lovely front room or the back bar area, the architecture and appointments make you feel as if you are in Paris. Unlike other local spots where you may feel a bit rushed to let them turn the table during the busy... More
