Seated immediately, had the pleasure of Caine as our server. Wonderful suggestions, great wine special. Business associate had Manhattan Seafood Chowder to start, then on to Ahi Tuna, I enjoyed the pear salad to start then had chicken saltimbocca for main course. Topped off with heavenly chocolate coconut cream pie. Outstanding experience!

Mine was good but came with what looked like a potato lasagna, which I was told was a scalloped potato. It was really dry. I was hoping for a... More

After living here for 3 years, I decided it was time to try this place out. The open air feel of the venue is pleasant; lots of light coming in. Despite the openness, it was quite easy to carry on a conversation at our table of six. I was not feeling well and the waitress picked up on it right... More

I thought the waiter was a little hurried but other than that it was a wonderful experience the Steak Frite which is what I had was delicious and everyone else's entree seemed really nice and they enjoyed it immensely!

Zinc was the venue for my ceremony and reception for our small wedding. The staff was incredible to work with and allowed us to create a custom brunch menu as well as bar menu. Both the ceremony and reception were beautifully decorated and all of our guests enjoyed the food and drinks. We had the entire restaurant reserved, so there... More

Wine selection is great. Duck confit and smoked trout appetizers and the dinner specials (salmon & bison) were delicious. Service (our waiter was Jesse) was excellent.

Last night we went to Zinc on central to have a meal. We both ordered the small tenderloin strip entree and really enjoyed it! The waiter was very friendly and gave great service. It is nice to know that you can always get a good meal at this restaurant. This is probably our 5th or 6th time we have eaten... More

Zinc is a lively three level bistro in Historic Nob Hill. Featuring an open, urban ambiance, Zinc offers casual fine dining on the main level and the loft mezzanine. For those looking for an exciting show, the exhibition bar offers seats right along the open kitchen. The menu focuses on high quality - yet affordable - American bistro fare and utilizes seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farmers. The Cellar Bar offers the same extensive wine list and premium cocktails as the upstairs, but in a more intimate lounge atmosphere with a lighter menu. The Cellar also showcases live music on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights, and a DJ every Friday. Visit www.zincabq.com for menus, pictures, and upcoming events!
