    Always good food with an exceptional service staff. Staff remembers previous visits and makes every effort to make you feel like welcomed old customer.

    The lunch special of chilled melon gazbacho and arugula burrata salad plus a chicken parm salad were very good, the room was small and cool. Our server was attentive and sweet. It was a busy holiday weekend, and the street traffic could be heard even with the doors closed which is a problem for all restaurants in downtown, I'm sure. Maybe one day they'll close off the street! I will recommend and return!

    The food was excellent, the service was great, but the noise level was annoying. It was extremely hot and we were forced to eat inside the small restaurant and not outside where it would have been an even better experience.

    We had dinner there last Sunday. We were the only ones there (it was, however, only 4:30) and had the place to ourselves. The service was excellent as was the food. The $39 pre fixed menu had great choices for all three courses. The ambiance was nice too (again, we were the only ones there at that early hour).

    Great service. Enjoyed the brunch. Short rib Benedict was a hit with 3 of us at the table. Wife enjoyed the Apple chicken sausage and Brie omelette. Bottomless champagne topped it off nicely. Excellent attentive service. Thank you to Kelly for a great experience.

    Amazing food & cocktails. We tried different prix fix menu items and all were delicious. Our server was fantastic, host was friendly and genuine. Will definitely make this a go-to every time we are in town.

    We tried pre fixed dinner. My husband had braised short ribs, half of meat was just fat and greasy. Vegetables tasted like microwaved frozen. Had to pay extra $15. Not worth it. I had salmon with asparagus. Salmon was okay but not seasoned at all. Asparagus were very tough to chew. Servers were trying hard to keep doing something since there were not many customers at dining. One of the worst dinner we had for the price we paid. Definitely need to improve their food.
    Zin American BistroResponded on June 29, 2024
    We're sorry to hear this was your experience. Our beef is prime and sometimes there is more fat on a few that slip by without us noticing. We don't use frozen vegetables or have a microwave to heat food. I hope you mentioned your dissatisfaction to the server and they took it off your check because we want all our guests to leave happy. After 20 years with the same owner, we pride ourselves in knowing we only serve quality and care about every dish that goes out and know this is not the usual or we would not still be here. If you did not mention this to anyone prior to posting here and want to have it made right please email the manager by responding to us directly with your information.

    Portions were way large, we would have loved a smaller portion option, even at the same price because the food was delicious!
