So I found this place via TripAdvisor and I took the reviews into consideration, which led to me making a reservation for myself and 3 others. The outdoor seating is wonderful if you go in for an evening dinner. It wasn't too hot and there...More

We went there with a work group during a conference. Food is good and reasonably priced. Loved the courtyard patio. Fully hidden from the streets so very quiet with nice water feature. The wine list seemed pricy in comparison with the food menu prices.

The zinc burger was delicious. We also had the lava cake and it was tasty. The cocktail (flirtini) was not very good though. Service was excellent.

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.
