Everything was just about perfect. This is a nice place to eat that does not feel at all stuffy. The menu size was just right - plenty of variety, but not too much. Eat the nachos! Fabulous appetizer!

Dinner with another couple on a Friday night stuck in the little party room in the back with a bunch of people with name tags. Other than this the restaurant was great. Ask to sit in the main room near the bar where it feels like a hip restaurant and not a conference center. The Brussels sprouts and shrimp appies... More

I have love this restaurant for over 10 years! It never disappoints. The service is classy and professional. The food is fresh and unique. The menu is always changing. I'm always sad to see a favorite meal removed but blown away by what has been added. You can never go wrong. I love coming here for girls night out or... More

Zinc have a great attitude to their food; they source everything locally and it is always prepared with real love and knowledge by the chef. My wife and i have been there several times before and we have always enjoyed it, but our most recent trip was just perfect. The desserts in particular were just amazing and presented beautifully. It's... More

I was told this restaurant was a solid pick, but it was simply an amazing lunch. From the soup to the main course, it was spot on perfectly done and delicious! We shall return many more times!

Conveniently located down the street from Yale University, Zinc is a chic restaurant with a semi-formal environment. Wait staff is excellent and food choices range from fresh fish to well prepared meat dishes. Nice wine and Drink menu as well.

I have been to Zinc perhaps a dozen times, and every time I make sure to try something new. While I recognize that many of the claims of 'farm-to-table' freshness are as close to political promises before the election, Zinc really does their homework and fashions a menu that highlights seasonal locally-grown products, both vegetable and otherwise. My co-workers and... More
