Came here while on a work trip with a group. BarZin did not disappoint! From appetizers to main course...everything I tried was off the charts. (And of course being in a group, we offered one another samples of everything we had) Make sure this is on your itinerary for your trip!

The setting is pure islands. Mossy old oaks shading the area and outside seating. Mixed drinks well made, with a kick. We had perfectly presented salads, a filet cooked to perfection with one of the best brown sauce reductions ever. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced by restaurant standards. Service was outstanding and unobtrusive. This wasn't our first time... More

Bar Zin has been a good addition to dining on Amelia Island for several years. It started with a very small interior and outside tables near fire pits for colder weather. It has now expanded to an additional large, indoor room. It still has a mixture of small and large plates, and a varied and mostly affordable wine selection. More... More

Made a reservation for a Monday night (truthfully, not much else was open) and we were very pleasantly surprised. They have an enormous wine selection - great for wine lovers. And the menu was extensive and interesting. Must have something for everyone!

BarZin has quickly become my favorite restaurant and every time we're in town, we have to make it to BarZin! We had our first dinner here with my now in-laws and everyone was blown away with the menu, wine, and overall atmosphere. We ended up booking our rehearsal dinner here and it was a great setting with a private room.... More

Good food. Good service. Fresh fish from the ocean. Cant ask for more. Flounder was great. It's a oily fish which was lightly breaded. Wine selection is good.

A regular to Bar Zin because the food is outstanding in a most pleasing atmosphere. Always have fantastic different specials. Seem to get my favorite frequently which iis crunch Crunch Tuna. Served cold over a bed of salad with a tasty dressing.

Our party of 10 enjoyed a variety of dishes, from chicken Marsala to a portabello burger, which were plentiful and tasty; the tuna appetizer was deemed very good by our tablemates. The restaurant was full even at our 8 pm reservation time - it appears to be a popular place. Parking seems limited, but the central location on Amelia Island... More

We love upscale dining without the dress-up. We have been here once a week for 3 weeks now and have had exceptional meals each and every time. The specials are really well thought out, with a twist on the conventional. The scallops - every time - are some of the best we have ever had. All of the seafood dishes... More
