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.

Stop in for a glass

We arrived late and the place was still busy. A great atmosphere, helpful staff, nice wine list and menu, everything we needed. It's a short walk off the Riverwalk, but that was a plus, a bit of a haven away from the crowds. Would definitely go again.

The bellman at Hotel Contessa recommended Zinc when I asked for a suggestion for a quick lunch and a good glass of wine. Located just off Market St and close to the River Walk, nice bar area in an old building with large windows and exposed brick in the bar, dining room in the rear with doors that open to... More

I travel to San Antonio for business 6 times per year and always eat at Zinc. It is always a friendly place to set at the bar and eat. The food is excellent and the priced is reasonable. I recommend the Texas Chop Salad, very good. Very good selection of wine as well.

We had drinks in the bar and dinner with friends from New Jersey at Zinc in January. Everything was delicious -- well prepared, hot. We will frequent Zinc when we are downtown.

Zinc is a restaurant that suffers from being outstanding when things are going well and a shame when it isn't. Our first visit was so good there - food, drink, service that we thought we'd found a gem on our trip to San Antonio. If we had left and never gone again this review would be quite different. Sadly, we... More

We just had Margaritas but this was a really nice Riverwalk escape. Really cool back patio, bar and attentive service. Although it's a Wine bar, it had a great menu that we look forward to sampling!

I had the portabella patty melt with sweet potato fries. I was very pleased with my meal, the sweet potato fries were the best I've ever had. We also had the guacamole that is prepared tableside. It was fresh and delicious! Our server was very attentive and friendly. I am thrilled that we found this little gem. I will definitely... More

Brought my CEO here for dinner. He liked how quiet it was in the inside dining room area. He also raved about the table-side guacamole. I always come here for the burger. It's always ranked one of the best in the city. I have a feeling we'll be back in July when we hold our conference there this year.

Zinc is probably a place to drine wine and hang with friends. The building and ambiance is very nice. Especially in the courtyard. The prime rib was a bit tough and the sides were cold. The bread was like a crouton. I was with a large group, but the price paid demanded at least base-line quality. It fell short.

In a limited downtown location, it was difficult for us to find good, affordable food. We actually ended up going to zinc three times during our visit. It was always tasty, including the stuffed portobello mushrooms on cooked greens and white chocolate cherry martini! It's also great that they have fresh smashed tableside guacamole.
