It's hard to beat this eclectic menu in such a romantic setting. Outside dining and a wonderful bar are plusses. Nice wine selection and creative cocktails round thr evening out nicely.

Party of 7 and everyone raved about their entree. Would definitely return and highly recommend. Service was friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is intimate without being too dark or loud.

Nice place.... we tasted almost half of the menu and it was above imagination... the only thing will take down is the price on the steak but it is worth every penny.... kids left their plates totally clean.. it is a 10 star to me

I order the shrimp and rice and it was delightful. The shrimp was very fresh and the bell peppers were grilled just right. The atmosphere and service was also great. I really enjoyed it and plan to go back my second night here in town....More

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.
