Description: 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.

“Yummy late dinner”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Nice wine list by the glass. Great starters including the tableside
guacamole(spelling?)preparation , antipasto, and the truffle oil French fries. The burgers looked wonderful and got rave reviews from diners at adjacent table. Reasonable prices in a nice setting. Huge patio dining area but rain shut that down.

“Good Food/Great Ambiance”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

I ate a lunch and a dinner here while visiting San Antonio on business. Very good tableside Guacamole and the cocktails were very good as well. For dinner, my friend and I shared a chopped salad with Salmon tartare and the Strip Steak. The steak was good, nothing special. However, the chopped salad was presented beautifully and had fresh sweet corn that had been flash frozen. It was a wonderful mix of flavors and crunch-- very memorable. The place was bustling on a Saturday night and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food. Definitely worth a visit.

“Exceptional service and food for lunch”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Small bistro style restaurant and bar. Intimate, big city atmosphere. The portabello mushroom burger was terrific. The Zinc burger, their specialty, was thoroughly enjoyed by my wife. The $3.00 caesar salad was unbelievable in taste and price. The shaved parmesan made the difference. Our server was excellent

“Unique and wonderful”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Slightly off the river walk but a great place to eat and drink. Semis to take its name from the unusual bar counter top. Service was outstanding even with them busy. So good I go there each trip

“Nice Little Gem”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I was staying at a downtown hotel and wanted a good burger. Zinc was recommended by the hotel staff and I wasn't disappointed. It is hardly a burger joint (I like those too), though; rather it is a Bistro and Bar. A very nice/intimate space with indoor and outdoor seating and sort of upscale southwestern touch to it. I had the Zinc Burger and a beer. The burger was great and different as it had a parmesan tuiles and spicy tomato aioli. Just enough spice to make the cold beer refreshing and thirst quenching. Waiter was friendly, professional and knowledgable.
