Ate here for lunch. Was a tad expensive for lunch and I was happy with my meal but I did have to go to the bar to get my own lemon slice for my drink.

Dropped in for drinks only. While they appear to have a good selection of wine and spirits, the beer selection is only bottles, limited and pricey. The place has a nice look and feel to it by using the history of the location to its...More

Zinc is a small restaurant/bar that offers seating inside and outside. It has a very historic feel to it since its surrounded by older buildings in Downtown San Antonio. I sat outside for a couples night dinner. It was very humid and out and would...More

Zinc Bistro is great! The food and beverage choices are pretty awesome and the atmosphere of the restaurant made it even better! The service was also great and Carmen made our experience that much better! The hummus appetizer is a must!!!

7 of us sat outside in back courtyard for my birthday dinner. Service was excellent as were the cocktails, appetizers and dinner. The beauty of the courtyard just added to the wonderful experience.

We had a wonderful time at this place. Great attentive service and excellent wine selections. We only ordered appetizers so did not try any meals there. The spicy artichoke dip is excellent. A perfect spot to relax!

First of all, we dined on the courtyard/patio and it is an intimate but relaxed space. From that location, the overwhelming crush of the Riverwalk fades away. I loved this feature! The menu is small but the food was a solid "good". I probably won't...More

Zinc was recommended by someone in one of the shops. We stopped and each had a drink(4 of us), and a couple of appetizers. All were very good. It was happy hour so drinks and food was 1/2 price - which was good since it...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.
