Description: 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.

Visited with a large group of people. The service was great and there were no problems with the food whatsoever. The servers knew their wine and all their recomendations were spot on.

We did a late dinner of several appetizers and a bottle of wine. The cheese board was the best I've ever had (honey comb, figs and many fantastic cheeses included) Server was attentive, atmosphere was nice and the hostess was very inviting. Sitting inside or out would be a treat for any occasion.

This was a great place to sit in the court yard, order a couple glasses of wine & try a few of their dishes. There were two of us for a girls weekend & we tried the flatbread & the "crack" burger. The burger was good, but we are suckers for a good flatbread and a tasty glass of wine.... More

Great place away from the madding crowds of the Riverwalk Website said Happy Hour 3-7, but when we got there on Sunday at 5, found no HH on the weekend However, the bartender honored it, & was very generous, since it was on the website, delicious wines & food.

Their portobello-melt was spectacular: a large grilled portobello (without the swiss cheese for vegans) over a bed of steamed spinach with caramelized onions on top and sweet-potato fries. A great server (Eugene) brought over a cart and made the best guacamole I've ever had by hand for us at our table. I had it for lunch, then came back and... More

The atmosphere was great when you first walked in and the staff was right there to greet you. They have outdoor seating but not good for August in Texas. The staff was very helpful in making our selection and seemed very knowledgable about their menu. We will definately be back the next time we are in San Antonio.

We went for a lunch while in tow for work and we were all impressed. I had the lamb burger and I was outstanding! The other all had the Zinc burger and raved about how good it was. Nice atmosphere and the service was great.

This is an amazing 'find' in the heart of the San Antonio Downtown. Situated a short walk away from the famed Riverwalk, it's a great place to spend a quiet evening enjoying the food and drinks. I've had one of the best Bloody Mary's ever at this bistro. Oh, and you just have to try their Calamari the next time... More

On a recent trip to San Antonio, my husband I stopped at Zinc for a cocktail, and we liked the menu, so we decided to have dinner in the bar. Everything that we ordered was delicious - the calamari and New York strip steak were both exceptionally good. We were also impressed by the wine list. We liked Zinc so... More

I try to read the reviews when picking a place to eat. Well my TA friends this y'all hit it on the head. Wonderful is not enough. My wife and I hit this place about 10:30 on a Sunday night, tired and wore out. Well the escargot was killer! The crab cakes are what crab cakes should be. Nothing to... More
