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

Having last eaten here in 2003, I was curious about how it would be 11 years later. Still reliably very very good. It and Brava may be the best restaurants in Lenox (but I didn't try Nudel). Extremely warm and accommodating service.

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
