There are a lot of fish on the menu and most are fresh, wild, and locally caught. Our server was very knowledgeable and offer tastes of wine for us to make a decision. The only down side were some geese who wanted to join our party. One of the specials of the day was sea bass. The fish was offered... More

But the view was on a slant . It was very busy the night we went and it was reflected in the service. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either and I sensed some tension among some staff members. The food was totally average and for the price it just wasn't worth it.

The location is great and the patio with views of the lake is very nice. The service and bread were very good but I was not overly impressed with our salads. I ordered the Ahi salad and a layer of skin was still on some of the pieces of fish. One friend ordered a salad with shrimp and the shrimp... More

After eating at The Landing, next door, we were pleasantly surprised at the upscale menu at Zin. I have been there three times in the last month, once for lunch and twice for dinner. With the warm weather upon us, we chose to sit outside near the fire pit on all three occasions. The only thing better than the fabulous... More

I have been to this restaurant several times with always getting great food and service. On week ends there is music which is very good. Every dish I have tried here has been fabulous.

The reservation was made by someone else, a person with a taste. I was quite taken by the atmosphere. The food we all had were simple but very fresh and tasty. The location is great. The service CD is good. The prices are reasonable. I'll be back here soon.

I'd been here for happy hour and enjoyed the selections offered. It's been a while since I had a meal here. Met a gf here last week for lunch and we both had excellent salads (seafood salad and blackened halibut salad). A good salad is hard to find in this area. Can't wait to go back.

Whenever the temperature goes up (and that's pretty much anytime of the year) we love to sit outside by the lake and dine on the delicious seafood dishes! There's always a cool breeze and it's such a romantic spot! A great bar inside for chilly evenings and also love the Sunday brunch!

My first time at Zin with my friend, who has been there several times. The dining area was slow for the Thursday evening, but the bar was hopping! Went with the waitress' favorite dish and she was spot on! I had the scallops with mushroom risotto. One of the best meals I had while visiting the LA area. My friend... More

We loved the waterfront location on the lake. Everything looked good inside and out. The menu was varied and interesting. But the service was so inattentive we had to ask the busboys for help with what we needed. Once they told our server we were getting impatient he started to come around a little more often, but was still distant... More
