Excellent menu and well executed. The waiter had an attitude and just wasn’t nice - but he took good care of us and all was accurate. No reason to for him to be pompous and carry that attitude as if he was in a stuffy Beverly Hills restaurant. Otherwise, great dinner!
Service was slow. Otherwise, the food was good!
Nice setting - great food
Food was great as usual. Chilean sea bass was sautéed with a delicious butter sauce with tomato chunks.
Very enjoyable. Great location. Good and diverse menu. We’ll be back.
Poorly managed. Food was great, waitress was great. Supporting service staff was gruff and not friendly
Everything was perfect. Our server Jamie was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. Our experience, as usual, was superb.
Ambiance and service was good, food was poor, especially for the price.
Started off having to wait 35mins for our reservation. What’s a reservation for if you have to wait so long for it?
It was a busy evening but that’s never an excuse for poor service, restaurants that are generally busy should know how to staff appropriately to give their dinners a good experience. The wait for service was too long and during dinner no one came to check on us - shame, I wanted a second glass of wine.
The medium rare steak we asked for came out medium well and the Halibut was very dry. For these prices I would expect better cuisine.
I imagine that this place is better during the week. I wouldn’t recommend going here on weekends.
Too expensive, average service food was ok, not great
Got to the restaurant on time waited while 2 girls at the front desk were gossiping. Finally was seated, not close to the water where I had asked. They brought us to a table with 2 seats, not 3 so we waited until they set up the other place. Ordered an appetizer, asked for a spoon, after a few minutes no one came back, asked another person for a spoon - again, no one showed up. Got our dinner. It was fine, nothing special. This was a special occasion, so I was looking for something really good. After we had finished, I asked to have the rest of my dinner wrapped up, everything except the rice. When I got my Togo box back they put the rice in it. Then I got the bill, 18% gratuity added. No mention of this beforehand and I honestly wouldn’t have mined if the service was good.
Social distancing protocols were followed.
Great location right by the lake. Very nice being able to relax and watch Canadian geese and other birds in the water. It was not crowded even though we did make an on-line reservation just in case. Our service was excellent and all Covid precautions were taken by the staff and the restaurant. Tables were a nice distance from each other. We just had appetizers and the fried pickles were great as well as the fried calamari and shrimp. We would definitely return.
They forgot our appetizers and I had to remind them twice. From cutlery to drink orders everything had to be asked twice for it to come to the table. Took exactly an hour to get our food. They comped the appetizers but honestly I’ll pay for my own food... what I need is professional service at this price point.
A Sunday afternoon late lunch with lake view and beautiful weather. Food and service were good and the view great as usual. The hostess seemed inattentive and in a bad mood, but we just ignored that aspect of our lunch😁
Beautiful location, great service, good food and a reasonably priced wine list...what could be better? Zin Bistro offers a wonderful Sunday Brunch/lunch menu as extensive as you could ever imagine. They also have all you can drink Mimosas for, as I recall, $16. All the safety precautions you'd want, I highly recommend Zin Bistro.
We love eating at Zin! The food and service are fantastic and the setting by the lake is picturesque.
We made a reservation for 7:15 got to our table at 8. you could've just gave us table at 8
We were seated an hour after our reservation time. It was very crowded and social distancing was non existent. We were a party of 4 (2 couples) and each of us were charged for the entire check and had to request that was corrected. In no rush to rerun to this restaurant.
Nice table just inside that looked towards lake and sun setting while live music played outside. Staff was friendly. Great food.
I would like to give them no stars. I booked the place for a special occasion. Unfortunately we were seated someplace away from the actual restaurant seating. How can that table be special and romantic, my husband and I left.
Very nice outdoor dining. Service and the Food is good
Best view, great food, wonderful staff. Zin’s is our choice for taking out of town guests!
There are no other words except to say absolutely amazing, it's right on the lake, it's lit beautifully. The food was very good, little pricey for some, but definitely worth it.
Took over an hour to get our food as we watched other diners arrive after us and get their food. Not sure if it was a kitchen or wait staff issue - no manager on duty either. But to their credit, our meal was comped.
The vibe was perfect with a two-piece band playing soothing sounds, the electric boats pulling into the nearby dock, and the sun setting behind strategically placed umbrellas. Given all that, it was a pleasant surprise how great the food and drink was too! Everything from the espresso martini to start to the double espresso to finish (okay, I have a pattern). Our table enjoyed a variety from the menu including salmon, sea bass, lamb, pork, bacon-wrapped shrimp, calamari, and more. Everything was great.
I have dined at this restaurant numerous times. However, after COVID, this is the second time I went there. The first time I had a reservation and when I arrived they said I needed to wait 45 min for my table. That was unacceptable and I left and went to another restaurant. The second time, again when I arrived on time for my reservation, they did not have a table ready and I waited 35 min for a table. I was about to leave again and go to another restaurant just before the table became available. This restaurant has a nice ambience and good food. However, for some reason their reservations are being mismanaged after COVID. I am not going back to this restaurant, at least until we come out of COVID, if ever, as one cannot plan on getting a table on time.
Always the best! Love this place to death! My favorite
Lovely place, good service, the food is good, but soaked with tons of butter....just so you know if that is a factor.
We'll be back as always, but it tends to be a caloric splurge.
The view was awesome Happy Birthday!
On the lake...beautiful, quiet, good food and good service
Food was just ok. Lacked seasoning both on the filet and chicken fried lobster. Service was sub par. Didn't bing a steak knife with the entree and even after a second request they still forgot to bring it. Used the bread and butter knife as the filet was getting cold. View of the water was nice.
The restaurant said they were not taking reservations through open table. We waited 45 min for a tiny table. Service was bad.
Waited 1/2 hour for a reserved table.
Worst table there
Music was not very good! I liked it better when there were 3 guitars and one vocalist, not just one vocalist and one guitar. There was no interpretation of the music.
Wine list was limited. Seats out on the grass too sunny.
Usually, we have good experiences here but not this time. Perhaps they were short-staffed but our waitress didn’t even check on us after we ordered our food till the very end. We had to keep requesting for water to be refilled, etc. The same with the diners adjacent to us - they even had to request utensils multiple times.
Maybe was just a bad night.
I was excited to finally dine at this restaurant since I have noticed Groupon has been advertising this place for some time. Finally I made reservations on a Saturday evening at 9 pm. About 1.5 hours before our reservation, i received a call from the restaurant stating that they can't take 9pm reservations and offered us 8:30. Luckily my fiancé and I were ready, but since we live about 35 miles away, it would have been a bummer if we were not ready after making reservations at a specific time.
Once we arrived to the restaurant on time, we were informed we had to wait another 15 minutes because they booked us for 8:45 even though by phone they confirmed reservations for 8:30.
After about 15 minutes of waiting to be served, our waitress comes and realizes that we don't have a drink menu. She then quickly drops off the drink menu and does not come back for another 15-20 minutes. This resulted in us having to ask a different waitress to call ours.
After our waitress finally came, we were able to be served normally. Food was decent and so were drinks. However, food was over priced for no reason and customer service was horrible! Because of this, I don't see myself returning to this place or recommending it to anyone else.
Beautiful setting, great menu and fantastic service. We will be back.
Lovely neighborhood gem. Added bonus water boats on westlake - a lovely distraction and super smooth music and singer under the stars adds to a delightful evening!! Reservations recommended!! The Ahi appetizer is my favourite and love the lobster raviolis; my husband is a big sand dab guy!! One of his favorites and nice size portions. Enjoy!
