Very Good but Give it Time

This is a very good restaurant, with a pleasant and interesting décor (they love Basset hounds), well prepared delicious food, a decent wine list, and comfortable tables. They are, unfortunately, understaffed, and you can wait a long time for everything here; drinks, your order taken, your order... read more

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Bistro Zinc. The entrees we had were the steak frite, coq au vin, and beouf bourguignon. All were delicious and the portion size was generous. There were also a nice selection of fish entrees and salads if you are looking for less traditional french food. You could even get a burger. The wait staff was... More

Food here was very good and fairly priced. The interior is quite nice but the tables are crammed side by side so it is impossible to have a private conversation. It was very difficult to get between our table and the next table when it was time to leave. The service was fine. The wine list had only one option... More

I went to Bistro Zinc around 9 pm on a Saturday evening planning on getting a quick glass of wine and maybe a little bite to eat. I sat at the bar since I was dining alone and the bartender, Rachael, immediately made me feel welcomed by offering both drink and dinner menus. I ordered the fried oyster salad which... More

We have eaten at Zinc any number of times over many years and have enjoyed every meal we have had there. The food is excellent and the ambiance is lovely. The bar area is less formal and we like it there as well. The service has always been great. This is our favorite restaurant in the Berkshires.

A good restaurant for dinner, but better for lunch. Not up there with Alta or Chez Nous. Solid menu selection and decent service.Junior staff do not know the menu as well as they should.

Nice menu and relaxed service. Right in the heart of the village. Portions were ample and dishes came out nice and hot.

As an occasional visitor to the Berkshires, I've been a loyal patron of Bistro Zinc for maybe fifteen years or so because of its great atmosphere (in the main dining room) and reliable food and wine menus. I have always enjoyed the lively-but-not-intolerably-loud atmosphere of the sunny main dining room, the straightforward and nicely prepared French bistro fare, and its... More
