The slow service and unexceptional meal did not live up to expectations. Menu selection can be improved.

Great to find a contemporary restaurant downtown Edmonton. Proximity to theatre and placement within the art gallery is a plus. Service was timely, presentation of meals just ok for the price. One expects more flair and artistry with a $30 meal. Shrimp main course should...More

Great menu with fine ingredient. Beautiful wine list (not too expensive) We drank a wonderful red wine from South Africa. The place is like a piece of art. Only thing the duck was too salty.

Usually you expect soggy hot dogs and sloppy fries in an institutional restaurant but Zinc changes that bar. The menu is adequate but the food was excellent, along with a good wine selection at a fair price. Destination on its own

The menu was small but everything sounded delicious, I chose the duck - Devine! The location, at the art gallery and across from the park was lovely. Only draw back was the noise level. I'll definitely go back!

The restaurant is beautiful, set inside the Edmonton art Museum. The decor is modern, cool and welcoming. Tables are nicely separated with comfy chairs. We waited quite a while for our server in a near empty restaurant for dinner service. The small menu was interesting,...More

over rated ... very small portions, actually went home hungry. Entrees arrived cold with mushy risotto. Service was slow and when we mentioned the meals were cold the server said she would let the chef know and that was the end of that.
