Our group enjoyed a memorable lunch here at Bistro Zinc. It was a windy and cool day in Lenox, so the cozy, bright and charming atmosphere was truly welcoming. The pesto grilled cheese sandwiches were a hit! Golden grilled sourdough bread was filled with field ripened tomatoes, Jack and Mozzarella cheese and topped with fresh pesto. Comfort food to the...

Stopped in here for lunch on Saturday and it was so good we returned for lunch the next day. Warm, cozy, inviting. Only knock was that on our second visit, the waitress cleared my companions plates before I even was halfway done with my meal. Obviously she was in a hurry to clear the table and get us moving along,... More

Had an early dinner at Bistro Zinc and found it quite nice. A wide variety of French inspired offerings. Very nice atmosphere and our dinners were especially good. Would definitely go again.

From my delicious Moscow Mule to the bread, the main course and the absolutely wonderful apple cider donuts, this meal was perfect! Would love to come back!

Went to the restaurant with set expectations as we had previously had a really nice meal here, although long ago. It was a weekend night and the restaurant was fairly busy. We got drinks quickly and they were really good. That was the only thing that was really good. I was with a large party and we ordered a number... More

We try to have lunch or dinner at Zinc on most of trips to or through Lenox. We always enjoy the food, service and ambiance. We especially like the French influenced menu from salads to steak-frites. Most recently, we ate at the bar but the dining room is always full of interesting people enjoying well-prepared selections.

We always make a visit to Zinc when we are on our way to an evening concert at Tanglewood. We have been doing this now for five or six seaons. The restaurant always pleases, particularly when we ask for seating in the front room, away from the bar. The service is warm,friendly and pleasant. And the entrees are delicious We... More

Over the years my wife and I have enjoyed many a fine meal at Zinc, but since they lost their long time chef, the food has been mediocre to say the very least. The first time I ate a meal prepared by the new chef I ordered the BOEUF BOURGUIGNON. What came was not Boeuf Bourguignon, which is a kind... More

We had a very bad dinner at Zinc. Started with my Martini, straight up. It came, not filled to the top of the glass. It was about 2/3 filled. When was the last time you saw a Martini straight up and the glass not filled to the top? Next came the onion soup. It was quite good, thick and lots... More

The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. The food is another issue. I ordered the duck breast with some vegetables. The duck came out twice and was well done each time. The vegetables were tasteless and not seasoned. You could count the corn pieces on one hand. They say you eat with your eyes first. This was the poorest visual... More
