The staff at Zinc was so accommodating, helpful, and very friendly. We were very well taken care of.
Best overall restaurant in New Haven. Creative, tasty, the best service personnel in town (Rachel is exceptional), healthy, farm to table. A romantic ambience. The place to take a partner or colleague that will unfailingly impress. Something on the menu for both vegans and carnivores.
They have done a phenomenal job making the place safe with plexiglass separating the tables and spacing them out! It was a wonderful experience!
We had their Prix Fixe menu and it was superb. Their clever food combinations are as good as ever, never disappointing, and very reasonably priced.
The food is superb! That staff outstanding. Michael, the manager and sommelier, is keenly intelligent, brilliant at inventing new cocktails and knowing great wine, and making us feel comfortable and well taken care of. Donna, one of the owners, is a wonderful host. It’s the best restaurant in New Haven.
We did an early dinner on Saturday. I had a tuna and my husband had a salmon. Both entrees were delisted.
Pretty and safe outdoors setup for the pandemic. Excellent food and service.
Outstanding food. Excellent service. Consistent for 21 years!!
Uniquely delicious food with exemplary service.
Such a treat to be able to eat outside during this terrible time of pandemic. Loved the service and set up. Excellent wine, great food.
Amazing food. Great service.
We had a party of six and everybody was very satisfied and happy with the food and restaurant. We will be back. Very nice patio and delicious food!
An excellent meal, well prepared, and nicely served. Enjoyed a nice chat with the owner, who came to our table. The outdoor dining area was an oasis in this difficult time. We will return often.

5 stars. Pleasure to dine in their outdoor space with such incredible food, service and ambiance.
Took my wife here for her birthday and we had a wonderful time. Never had a bad meal at Zinc
wonderful date night for restaurant week! great service and yummy food.
We came for restaurant week, the menu was fantastic, service was prompt, and we had a great time!
So ... we will not be going back anytime soon! The food was mediocre and the portion size was small. We sat outside amd there was an excersize class going on outside right near us...this made it a little uncomfortable and very noisy.
We went during restaurant week to try it out because we heard great things about it.
Much better places to eat in New Haven!
Great night on the patio. Loved the duck nachos!!
Delicious food and cocktails. Service was wonderful as well. Very nicely setup for outside dining.
We had a great experience . The food was great and service was excellent. Thank you Donna, Denise and team!
Everything was nice except we were freezing. No heat lamps were avail.
Exciting and interesting dishes. The staff is so friendly and accommodating.
One of the few restaurants we go and think to ourselves, "this is better than anything we can cook at home". Great service and spacing.
Awesome service and food.
Great food service and drinks.
We sat inside, and near the bar, and the bartender was our waiter. The Martinis and other cocktails were strong and true. The burger was awesome, although the fries lacked inspiration. Duck nachos and beef lettuce wraps are the perfect apps. Overall the atmosphere was friendly, relaxed, hospitable—which is saying a lot in these COVID times.
Our favorite place. They followed state protocols which was a big plus for us. We love it!
THE FOOD WAS FABULOUS AS USUALLY!! WE LOVED EVERYTHING!!! :)
Love Zinc.. Recommend to everyone. The outdoor seating is a plus
We really enjoyed the outdoor dining spot that they set up for COVID and the food, atmosphere, etc. were lovely.
Always a great experience at Zinc! Glad to have them back.
The outdoor seating is lovely and the meal was exceptional! Definitely going back again soon!
We frequent this restaurant and have found that every time we go, the food from appetizer thru to dessert is excellent and the service is excellent. If you have not been to Zinc then you are truly missing a great experience. Ask for Joanne as your waitress. She is phenomenal and very knowledgeable about the dishes and the wines.
As always, a wonderful dining experience at Zinc. Even with the complications of CoronaVirus, Zinc was busy, and yet safe social distance between tables. A pleasure to be there!
Excellent food all around, nice presentation and great service. Kudos to the chef!
Our food was delicious, especially the mushroom ravioli. Service could have been better. Our waitress seemed very cranky and never smiled. They also sat us next to the door on a freezing night and the chill coming by every time the door opened was bothersome.
Field greens salad and grilled tuna were both outstanding. One of the best meals I’ve had in years!
It was a wonderful restaurant and the staff were amazing. I had Malaysian Shrimp Fried Rice Fried Brown Rice, however disappointed in the shrimp quantity only had three shrimp in the bowl, but the flavor and meal was enjoyable. I will recommended to my friends.
Wonderful evening. We enjoyed our dinner and wine by the glass was delicious (Pali PN).
