The food here is so well done it is worth going regardless of what I experienced for service. I was seated and the gentleman introduced himself as my server, blew the menu so fast I could only ask one question. Then he was gone. I mean gone. I finally was able to flag down a very helpful gentleman. He helped... More

Great drinks and wonderful food. Want we had was very good, go for the Lamb Burger which I think is better than the Zinc Burger, much better flavor. If you are set on beef you will not be disappointed with the zinc burger. A bottle of Au Bon Climat will go well with the burgers, Do the Brioche Bread Souffle... More

I stopped here for a drink last night and decided to come in for lunch. I ordered the Texas Cobb Salad, which was diced salmon with greens, dried corn (crispy!) and couscous. It was fresh and light. I would come here again.

My husband and I visited here with another couple. We were looking for something just off the river walk at a decent price and were thrilled to find Zinc. Service was speedy and friendly, and the food was fabulous. The Zinc burger, at $10, was an amazing deal, and although the crab cakes I had were small, at $12 they... More

We were originally seated inside, but noise level was high. We asked to be moved outside and they did so. Much better. The food and wine were great. Prices not high at all. Dustin, our server, was wonderful.

Came for a late night meal after watching the San Antonio Spurs game. The kitchen closed at 11:45 and the bar stayed opened until 2:00a. We arrived at 11:30 and they were nice enough to set a table for our group of 6 (despite it being a Wednesday evening so near to closing). Service: quick and friendly. Ambience: lovely outdoor...

Off the busy Riverwalk, the outside dining area was a relaxing area to enjoy a delicious portabella patty melt. The combination of vegetables, seasoning, and cheese was just right.

This is the second visit. The first was four years earlier. Then and now we sat outside on the patio. Very nice. Then as now we had wine. Reasonable list. But, the menu isn't as creative as it once was. Perhaps I am rating because of that disappointment. But, the food we had - fries, calamari, duck wings, guacamole -... More

We were here on a food tour so did not see the menu. Had guacamole it was good. I heard the burger is really good. Definitely will return on our next visit to try.

Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts.
Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.
