Great food but weak service

I had heard a lot about Zinc and thought it would be a good idea to take my wife there for our anniversary. The food was pretty darn good. My wife and I shared the calamari, antipasto plate and the crab cakes. The food and wine were good but the service was severely lacking. We spent 150 dollars there and when you spend that kind of money at a restaurant you expect top notch service. We waited about ten minutes ... view more

Best kept Secret

It was our anniversary and we wanted to try something new and we were definitely not disappointed. Zinc is nestled in a secluded little side street on N. Presa. It's a little small inside but the courtyard is where it's at. Candlelit patio tables, fountains throughout, ivy covered terraces, you almost forget that this is San Antonio. We ate outside, of course. We had the escargot. It was cooked beautifully in garlic... view more

Hidden gem in the bustle of San Antonio

Zinc is definitely a great place to enjoy the San Antonio evenings! I have been here many times, and although they have received some bad reviews, I have never had any issues here. The outdoor dining area is quite romantic, and has a classic appeal. The service has always been excellent, and the food! The Lamb sandwich is my favorite! Definitely something to try if you stop in! You will not be disappointed!

The Wait Staff & Bartenders are Excellent

I was in San Antonio the week of Jan 25 thru the 30th,\r I was at Zinc every day sometime 2 times! If you get\r in there ask for Alley, she really knows her wine and \r is a wonderful person. She can direct you to anyplace\r you are looking for and if she can't she will find someone who can. Stop by, you will love it there.

Looked forward to it all week, was very disappointed

I had hoped for more interaction from the bartender when I was trying to choose a wine or menu selection. Usually at wine bars, the staff knows the wines well and when I asked for a recommendation, I would have appreciated at least a few questions about what I was looking for in a wine or what I would be pairing it with on the menu. I got none of that. My steak was overcooked and the bartender never checked ba... view more

Perfect 2 nights in a row.

On a girls weekend trip to SA we came across this really cute little wine bar and restaurant. The first night we came in late and found that they do a special that changes every other day. Every part of it was wonderful and it was approx $10. Our server, the wonderful Christie, took fabulous care of us and then brought us separate checks where she even split of the price of items we shared between the three of us. Al... view more

Great Atmospher/Ambience, Great Service

I must disagree with the mostly negative reviews ""Zinc"" has gotten. I have been there at least five times and have always had a good to wonderful time. Regarding the service - our server offered to GO BUY US CIGARETTES WHEN WE RAN OUT even though they do not sell them there. Further, when it's cold out, the outdoor seating is accomodated with very warm thick Mexican blankets that you can literally wrap around yo... view more

Snooty, pricey and basically not fun at all.

If you want to feel stupid about wine, go to Zinc. The servers are so rude and snooty that it's just uncomfortable being there. Ridiculously expensive wine list and smoky as hell. This place is well passed it prime - I prefer to go to Drink around the corner.

Overhyped, pricey and soulless.

Expensive drinks all around, snotty staff, and so smoky you can't even see the people you're with. Been there a few times and it's gotten worse every single time. Avoid avoid avoid.

Tough Critic

What a great spot! We loved it. The staff is very engaging and the bar food was excellent. My lamb sandwich was to die for. They are a full service bar, but of course wine is their claim to fame. We were only disappointed with the poor stemware selection. All that good wine poured into inferior glasses was a shame. Can you imagine drinking a Pinot Noir from a Bordeaux glass? LOL I wish I had a reason (or enough p... view more
