Highly recommend this place. Especially liked their mojitos and sangria, guacamole, and zinc salad. Be sure to make a reservation though.

I came here based on the positive reviews that I had seen hoping to find a good place without the craziness of the River Walk. I was able to sit immediately at the bar though the place seemed very busy. Seemed to be more locals...More

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.
