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.

GREAT place to sit with friends!

If you like wine, this is your place. GREAT selection and great food, VERY reasonably priced. We had guacamole freshly made at our table as an appetizer. Lamb burger was great. I'm coming back here again.

Zinc is a great place to go to that is away from the touristy river walk, although it basically a cross the street, you get a more local vibe at Zinc. Amazing wine and sparkling selection, and some of the best Mac'n'cheese I have ever had. Great atmosphere with a wonderful patio.

Me and my boyfriend came here on a Monday afternoon for lunch. We didn't want too much so we each ordered a glass of wine and 3 appetizers to share. We had the escargot, faux gras, and chili Mac and cheese. Everything was so good. We decided to go for a dessert and espresso since they had a pumpkin crème... More

We love Zinc!! Every time we are in SA we visit. The Chocolate Raspberry Martini is one of my favorite drinks and a great value at happy hour. The outdoor courtyard dining is like a small oasis and a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle along the Riverwalk. Everything we have eaten here has been great - from the... More

I had the prickly pear margarita -- wonderful. Burger was good. Calimari was spicy and good. I was with a large group in the back patio. Staff was attentive and helpful. Casual small place.

Food was not as described on the menu. Pear was missing from the salad and the cheese plate was all wrong ... We order a few plates and kept a menu in order to explore other options to add. We were told our cheese plate would take about 15 minutes since it is all freshly cut. This was fine -... More

What a charming place with great appetizers and wine list. Our waitress was very well spoken and attentive. The table side guacamole was good and hubby's lamb burger, very good. We would definitely go back!

I might disagree with some of the other reviewers. We had a great time! We were greeted & sat promptly, choosing the courtyard. That was a nice setting with several birds and an acceptable Texas evening temp. The wine book had many to choose from, way to many for us. We were offered samples of the wine before we bought,...
