I thought the waiter was a little hurried but other than that it was a wonderful experience the Steak Frite which is what I had was delicious and everyone else's entree seemed really nice and they enjoyed it immensely!

The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our waitress was very attentive, but not too much so. Very nice atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Zinc was the venue for my ceremony and reception for our small wedding. The staff was incredible to work with and allowed us to create a custom brunch menu as well as bar menu. Both the ceremony and reception were beautifully decorated and all of our guests enjoyed the food and drinks. We had the entire restaurant reserved, so there... More

Wine selection is great. Duck confit and smoked trout appetizers and the dinner specials (salmon & bison) were delicious. Service (our waiter was Jesse) was excellent.

Last night we went to Zinc on central to have a meal. We both ordered the small tenderloin strip entree and really enjoyed it! The waiter was very friendly and gave great service. It is nice to know that you can always get a good meal at this restaurant. This is probably our 5th or 6th time we have eaten... More

In a definitely upbeat and sophisticated atmosphere, Zinc offers an inventive, eclectic menu, a superior bar, and food that delivers on taste. The gazpacho and the elk steak were particularly tasty on a recent visit. Zinc has a solid place among the city's top restaurants, and their Sunday brunch is a standout. Their manager Ralph is a pro and makes... More

We love the service and food in the cafe. The food is fun and interesting and the staff is fantastic. However , we made a mistake and went to the cellar bar which needs somebody to watch the bartending staff . They need to find a person who actually like people to work there . There is an odd vibe...

We ate upstairs and loved the food and our server. It was quiet on a Saturday because everyone was downstairs. Bryan, our server, was so much fun. He gave great recommendations and really made us feel welcome. We ordered two cocktails which were mixed perfectly. We then ordered the pre-fixe meals which were prepared beautifully. I'd come back here again... More

Zinc is a lively three level bistro in Historic Nob Hill. Featuring an open, urban ambiance, Zinc offers casual fine dining on the main level and the loft mezzanine. For those looking for an exciting show, the exhibition bar offers seats right along the open kitchen. The menu focuses on high quality - yet affordable - American bistro fare and utilizes seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farmers. The Cellar Bar offers the same extensive wine list and premium cocktails as the upstairs, but in a more intimate lounge atmosphere with a lighter menu. The Cellar also showcases live music on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, and a DJ every Friday. Visit www.zincabq.com for menus, pictures, and upcoming events!
