    Small portions

    Unless you're on a diet, skip it. I ordered the regular serving size trout. I paid $24 and the fish weighed 3.5 ounces. If I'd caught the fish I'd have thrown it back due to its size.

    The best seafood in town!

    Wonderful scallops and amazing salmon stuffed with salted cod! what a treat. I laughed a little at the 'rainbow trout' (it's very GLBT friendly). Beautiful restaurant and very pleasant. Although we choose to sit inside, the choice of outdoor seating was nice as well. Felt like an artist in Paris.

    don't get excited

    Came to this restaurant based on reviews that were read which were completely misleading. Started off with stale bread, inexperienced servers and extremely salty food. Overall completely dissatisfied with this restaurant.

    Teeny Tiny!

    The food here was fantastic, I have to start with that. Unfortunately, given the size of the restaurant, our party of two was sat directly between two parties of 10+ people. We could barely hear each other, let alone get up from the table. Not BYOB but the carafes of table wine make for good value.

    my new favorite place

    So glad we finally tried Zinc - Im telling everyone I know about it. You must have the octopus appetizer, absolutely the best octopus I've ever had and prepared differently than any I've had. Service was gracious but not 'too much.' I ate at the much more famous 10 Arts a few days before this meal blew it away.

    Went woth a group of people to this small bistro and had a wonderful time: my grilled endive salad was the best salad I've ever had. Liver was crispy yet tender with a great sauce to match. Our server was very professional and caring and gave us good recommendations both on wine and food. Room seemed rustic in a very homey way. We all enjoyed ourselves and plan to return.

    Not worth it

    I was looking forward to my diner at Zink. It was Thursday (two weeks ago). We loved the atmosphere and the little glass of champain was a great start. The menu looked good, but... The muscles were mediocre at best, and I have had better lamb sausage at Race St. Café. for much less. I ordered the rabbit stew. It was not a stew. It was some uncooked pappardelle(?)in big lumps. The rabbit was supposed to be boneless but it had little bones in it and it was extremely chewy. My wife ordered the steak frits. Also chewy and something out of a diner. Our friend ordered the scallops. The only good entree. We had an inexpensive (but good) bottle of Pinot Noir and the bill added up to $200. Definitely not worth it. The waitress was friendly and very professional but couldn’t make up for the food. I was very disappointed. There are plenty of other French bistros in the city that are much better and affordable. Too bad.
