We had a pleasant late afternoon lunch after visiting Naumkeag. The restaurant was pretty quiet, given the time of day, but comfortable none the less. We had good service and good food - the bibb salad and butternut squash soup as appetizers, then meatball and rigatoni (a special) and the shrimp nicioise salad as main courses. I have no complaints... More

We visited on a random Thursday evening and made reservations for 6PM. We arrived and the restaurant was nearly empty. It took 15 minutes for us to be noticed after we were seated, and another 30 for our drink order to be taken. Really? I ordered a glass of wine before dinner and it was never replenished even though my... More

I would like to thank you for choosing to dine with, and taking the time to leave a review. Unfortunately, the service that you received certainly does not meet our standards, and I apologize for that. Over the past month we have had several new trainees, and not all of them have worked out. I believe that the evening you... More

I had dinner with two friends last night at Bistro Zinc. As usual, the food and service were great. The manager, Seth, and his staff are very welcoming. I can never resist the moule frites...the portion size is just right. Also, the shrimp tempura and the burrata appetizers were really good. One of my party had one of the best... More

The food is good but the rest of the experience ruins the experience. The wine list is horrible - and the pour is worse. The staff was not friendly. I've been there four times over the past 3 years, I loved the food the first time, was disappointed with the wine and pour from the beginning. Staff has always seemed... More

This is a lovely restaurant in the heart of Lenox. It was not busy when we went, but this was midweek at the end of October. The meal was delicious. I had the pan fried cod which was cooked to perfection. Service was friendly and prompt. Would recommend.

We dined at Bistro Zinc on our first night in Lenox and upon arrival found the staff to be very welcoming and attentive. The lighting is a little dark and intimate, but adds to the atmosphere of the restaurant. Good range of dishes on the menu and great wine list. We both opted for the chicken and whilst very large...

Bistro Zinc should write the book on what true and sincere customer service looks like! We ordered the grilled cheese duck confit - ruined me for all other grilled cheeses! and the mussels. The host came to our table to apologize for a miscommunication between the staff and chef - they were out of mussels. We ordered the trout. While... More

We made a reservation on the same day. The little restaurant was busy but cleary a favorite for locals it seemed. The environment was upscale casual. The menu had a variety of options including something for vegetarian diets.
