Lovely patio setting. It was windy though, so not as pleasant as other times. Server was nice and efficient. 2 tables left before ordering because of the wind and cold.

A wonderful lakeside restaurant for brunch or dinner fully equipped for outdoor dining with serene views of Westlake and the mountains. Extensive menu which offers something for everybody and every dish is well prepared and nicely presented. Great good, great service and a beautiful venue. I highly recommend it.

The only thing we didn’t like was being seated 15 mins late and then waiting almost 10 mins for a waiter to come over. Once we were actually seated we were also told firmly we have 1 hour and 30 mins for our table. By the time we had actually been seated and got our drink order taken. 25 mins had passed of the 90 given. Not cool!

We will be back to Zin Bistro. The view is absolutely lovely and service was excellent. If the menu could expand little more I would have given 5 stars all around. The hostess was very sweet when we were greeted & our server was on top of things as he had many tables to take care of. The atmosphere is very comfortable with all the accommodations the restaurant has provided during this pandemic.

They were closed. Why does OpenTable allow reservations when a restaurant is closed. This review is a rebuke to OpenTable and the restaurant for not updating the site that restaurant is closed. Wasted my time

I got there confused because I wasn’t sure where the restaurant was located. I opened the door to see who was in there and there was some people laughing and talking; nobody asked me if I needed help or something. I went back outside to ask someone else and I was told that the restaurant was in fact the one that I went into. I tried to go in again to ask if it was open but a lady locked the door instead of asking if I needed assistance.

Showed up to our “reservation” to find a completely closed restaurant. So, I guess I’ll have to call each restaurant individually to make reservations from now on. Smh

The outdoor patio and fire pit are lovely! The food was fantastic. Our server did her best, but the wait times were really quite a problem. Our appetizer took so long to come out the the server came by and apologized after 15 minutes, offered to take it off our bill, then came by and apologized again after another 20 minutes and offered us a round of drinks. However when we got our bill the appetizer had not actually been removed. They told us there was a a 90 minute limit on the table when we arrived at 5pm, which I completely understand, but when it takes 50 minutes to get the appetizer and then another 30 to get our meals, that 90 minute limit becomes problematic. This was a birthday dinner and we had intended to celebrate with a dessert, but we cut our meal “short” due to the extremely long wait times.

The service was so bad. Hostess was incredibly rude, waiters were dismissive, they couldn’t even bring the bare essentials like utensils when our food arrived. I just finally got up and went to the bar and grabbed utensils. The food was ok. I’ll definitely never go back - purely because of how disappointing and frustrating the service was.

I gave you middle of the road stars because I like the place, but don't accept a reservation that you can't honor. that is why I gave a 1 star overall. Just state no reservations allowed- or take out only, that would of been better instead of me driving all the way to your restaurant to find out it was take out only and that wasn't going to work for me that day.

Great place for lunch dinner. Next to a lake . The food was great but you have to let the kitchen know how u like ur meal or they will over do it. For salads ask dressing on the side. Overall amazing experience.
