Not great

The best part of the evening was being greeted by a friendly host. Our server seemed like he had better places to be. He id-ed one member of our party but blindly served another (who was of age, but younger than the carded member). When he served our drinks a strange, marijuana like substance fell... read more

Zinc Bistro & Bar - Lenox, MA 1/12/2015 Discover a French Jewel in the Berkshires... Zinc Bistro & Bar... It's a Monday night and given the locale as you might expect it was not busy. With the fresh fallen snow, off street parking was scarce so the large parking lot behind the restaurant was very convenient. I walk in the... More

The appetizers were quite yummy so probably a great place to go to the bar. Found the burger extremely greasy and the fish was just OK. Don't think we'll return. Not sure why this place was so highly recommended. Also, be aware there is a front seating area and a bar dinner area. Went for a romantic dinner but were... More

We had a wonderful lunch at Zinc. The setting is pretty, tables spaced well enough to enjoy a private meal in a pretty setting. The wait staff are attentive without being annoying. The room is reasonably quiet. There is an interesting menu with great fresh soups and salads. The wine selections are good and the price is moderate. This will... More

Not that impressed with Bistro Zinc. Maybe it was an off-night, but the waitress wasn't all that friendly, and my boyfriend's meat didn't cut right in the soup. At least they took that off the bill. Nice restaurant but not the best.

This is a nice place for dinner in the center of Lenox. Very good food and drink, and nice waitresses. My wife ordered a vegetarian polenta dish from the menu, and as a special that night, there was polenta with shrimp which I ordered. Clearly they are very skilled in preparing this dish, and it would be a good idea... More

My husband and I were recently visiting family in Lee, Massachusetts when we had an opportunity to dine at Bistro Zinc in Lenox. From the moment I walked in I liked the restaurant. It was casual, warm and very welcoming made even more so by the maitre d. The menu boasts "typical" french fare, i.e.. french onion soup, moules frites,... More

We chose Zinc as we were walking around Lenox, and are so glad we did! We each had a cocktail that were not lacking in their punch. We then had the Duck Confit appetizer, which was unbelievably seasoned, followed by two very good pear/goat cheese salads. The flat iron steak and breast of duck were two very tender choices for...
