4 Star Restaurant

One of the few restaurants in northern Ohio that is worthy of a 4 star rating (out of 5). Excellent food and wine selection along with a nice atmosphere. Would recommend making reservations.

If you are a foodie who likes well done mixed drinks and excellent wine selection then you need to try Zinc. Wines are very reasonably priced. The owner/chef is creative. Good bar scene, try the cucumber martini

I have reviewed this restaurant a couple of years ago but they have moved into a nicer larger space and the offerings continue to be cutting edge. Fortunately, they continue to offer their lobster bisque, a delicious terrine of lobster chunks and bisque, covered by puff pastry. Be careful as the bisque is quite hot... I suggest you take the...

The wife and I visited on a Saturday night, it was fairly busy. We went with an order of mussels, woodfired oysters and the farmstead pizza. The food was fantastic, and the service was good. My only complaint is their beer selection. I am craft beer IPA nut, not really any good ones to choose from. I settled on a... More

I would say this is probably one of the best restaurants in the Sandusky area. Loved the decor in a beautifully restored building downtown near the water. The meal was excellent in both presentation and taste!

First time to the relocated Zinc. More airy and brighter than the previous location that we visited a few times a year. You can rely om getting something that will be flavorful and delicious. They're always coming up with great tasting dishes

The new location for Zinc is very cool, the historical buildings in the area are being restored so well, leaving the charm of the old work under, as the design! Very well done! The unique menu has allot to offer for every taste. A nice mix of seafood, meats, pasta, salads, and of course desert, all specially prepared, and very... More

This is more of a review for the adjacent Hearth Tavern located within Zinc Brasserie. We have eaten here at least a dozen times in the past year since its opening. Each meal has been great. Delicious wood fired pizzas and a great selection of salads and appetizers that changes with the seasons. We especially love the bets and Brussels... More

We recently had a special family gathering -- 13 folks ranging in age from 4 to 80 -- that could not have gone better. The service was impeccable -- friendly, attentive, unobtrusive. We ordered off the menu, but seemed to present no challenge to the kitchen with the volume & variety. Everyone's meal arrived at once, in a timely manner,... More
