Wonderful little restaurant, great food and service. Get an outside front table as it allows for some good people watching.

We are frequent Palm Springs visitors, first time Zin Bistro eaters...We loved it. Amazing food...fantastic people watching. We sat outside and had a great view of the Spring breakers enjoying the desert.
We had the Fried Blue cheese olives and Butter Lettuce salad to start...yummmmmmyyyyyyy....I had the special...Risotto with Beef Cheeks....mmmmm...my husband had the Belgian Beef Stew. We were both beyond happy with our meals. Both were full of flavor and the meat was so tender!! I would call the food Succu-licious!!
Service was excellent as well. Price was great and appropriate for the quality of food. Overall...I would have dinner at the Bistro again and again and again!

Try Lucas' cucumber, lime, mint, and jalapeno martini. Extremely refreshing with a nice kick at the end.

The food was amazing. The Nicoise salad I had on my FIRST visit was great. So much so that we had to go back for dinner a couple of days later. Not only was the service friendly, but so was the clientele.

The location also makes it great for people watching when sitting al fresco. I will definitely go back whenever I am in town.

We started with happy hour, sitting at the bar. The bartender was absolutely the best bartender ever! He was definitely a mixologist. Our reservations were at 7 and our table was ready. We ordered the veal meatballs, they were good, not great. The bread was awesome! Our appetizer, carpaccio, was outstanding. Our friends ordered the macadamia crusted chicken schneizel, and it was the best. I highly recommend that dish. Vin has excellent patio seating in the heart of all the Palm Springs action.
