Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts. Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.

LOVE it. A must when in SA!

I can't say enough about this place. It's one of the best in SA, in my opinion. And I have eaten at most worthwhile restaurants in town. If you are downtown or strolling on the River Walk, make sure you stop by Zinc. The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. Everything from their pizza to... read more

My husband and I ate a quick lunch here and it was delicious! Although it is not directly on the Riverwalk, we ate outside and it had a quaint European vibe! I chose to have a salad with added chicken - and the chicken melted in my mouth! It was a rotisserie chicken with some type of blackened seasoning -... More

Loved the chicken. Great drinks and very good atmosphere. Not too noisy, so it's a good place to go for a business co-worker dinner when on the road. Wine list is pretty good as well. Wasn't expecting this in San Antonio. Lots of shops to browse before or after as well.

A great lunch place for business in the heart of San Antonio I've been to Zinc several times for lunch as it is an easy walk from most everywhere in downtown SA. In good weather, sit outside in the intimate small courtyard with a fountain. They have a reasonably priced lunch special every weekday and I've never been disappointed. Usually... More

Wine selection was Ok. Did not try the food. The night I visited many of the staff were definitely in training mode as some of them had trouble opening the wine, did not know much about the wine offerings and were learning how to make certain cocktails. Nonetheless, in spite of this, the staff were pleasant, attentive and trying to... More

I took my girlfriend to the river walk and as we were walking around I say a hotel employee outside having a smoke break. As is my custom when I don't know a city well, I asked the lady where to get a good meal at a reasonable price, since she worked downtown I figured that she probably had a... More

There are a lot of good restaurants in San Antonio but I keep coming back to Zinc. Friendly and attentive staff. Central location, tasty food and clever wine list. Try the calamari the Parmesan fries and the lamb burger and you won't be disappointed.

We were looking for a different spot this time in San Antonio, and on a tip from a hotel employee, we tried it out. We ordered and delighted on the antipasto, had possibly one of the best house salads I've ever had (only $3), and lamb entrees that were out of this world. Service was excellent. One of if not...

We (me, wife and 20 yr old son) really enjoyed our dinner. Had a couple of appetizers and burgers. Really enjoyed the cheese and meat plate appetizer, and the artichoke dip was good. My wife loved her salad. The burger was one of the best I have had. They have a very good wine list. The service was excellent except... More

I arrived here with a small group without notice and they were happy to serve us (unlike other restaurants) which was amazing. The prices are very good for downtown. The food is so delicious I want to travel 300 miles just to eat their shrimp po boy. My group ordered different things, we all tried each others food and we... More
