Excellent food, but get there early....

Our dinner was excellent. However, they had run out of three of the main courses. The onion soup and beef bourguignon was perfect, as was all the food we were able to order. The chocolate bread pudding, for dessert, was superb. This is a good restaurant, but I guess have a 7:30 reservation is... read more

We were 5 couples out together for the first night of a reunion get together dining at the highly recommended Bistro Zinc. Needless to say, we were looking forward to a pleasant dining experience. The restaurant was not full and I expect that our 8:00 pm reservation was on the late side. Two of the dishes we ordered... Fried calamari... More

After reading good reviews of Bistro Zinc, we, a group of ten went there for dinner. Nine of the ten meals were well below par. My husband had the steak Frite and could not chew it and sent it back. Two people ordered the hamburger which looked wonderful--they were dried out and not edible. The grilled shrimp were mealy. I... More

steak frite was very good - large portion; my husband's duck confit was dried out. Service was very good with extended pauses between courses

Good food in a lovely bistro atmosphere. Great waiter and Manager who promptly took both main dishes back after they were lukewarm and were not as described on the menu and delivered two new entrees with a smile. They even gave us a complimentary dessert. The beef bourgignon was full of umami goodness. The cow au vin was also delicious.... More

My husband and I ate here after a long day visiting our kids at camp. The food was fine but not stellar. The server was helpful, but our food came out way too fast. We were hoping for a more romantic evening after a hectic day.

Have been here many many times and always superb. Doesn't matter what you are in the mood for, it will be good, beautifully presented by a good and well informed staff.

While visiting Lennox we eat at Zinc. It has a very varied menu with something for everyone. Staff were helpful and willing to give advice and had good food knowledge. The kale salad was delicious and a good start to the meal.

Bistro Zinc has been serving great fare and ambience for years. Happy to say that our visit over the 4th was special as well. The steak frites was perfectly prepared and the Bibb lettuce salad was light and savory. The vibe is laid back and perfect for the Berkshires visit.

Very nice food. Elegant setting. Accommodating staff. Deserts perhaps the crowning touch but salads and specials were tasty.
