We stopped here on the SAFoodTour and the only thing we were served was their guacamole, made at our table which apparently other SA restaurants do, too. While guac may sound boring, Zinc's is anything but!! The 2 things that distinguish theirs are the wood-fired...More

We stopped by without reservations and they fit us in quickly. Food quality, flavour and temperature was way above expectations. Price was moderate which makes this a bargain. A bottle of wine and two fresh dinners with perfect portions for$75

Margaritas and guacamole--half price at happy hour! Along with great service and ambiance in the courtyard! We liked it so much that we went back the second night on the Riverwalk. We also shared an entree (shrimp kebab) that was delicious. So, a very enjoyable...More

We chose to sit on the patio and it was a lovely experience. It was quiet and the food was excellent. It did take us almost 15 minutes to have a server approach our table and they did not seem to be overwhelmingly busy. My...More

If you would like to get off the Riverwalk for a great meal, try Zinc. Just a two bock walk, you can dine indoors or out. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great.

We went for snacks and drinks and loved the courtyard atmosphere. It was cold out so they had the outdoor heaters running. The guacamole was delicious! We also had crab cakes which were flavorful and light!

Stopped @ Zinc after attending an Octoberfest party a friend held at his downtown condo. Zinc has always been a favorite of ours for its ambiance, its courtyard, and its extensive menu of yummy food and delicious wines. This visit was yet another wonderful experience....More

The best lamb burgers! We were here 3 months ago and enjoyed the lamb burgers so much that it was our first stop when we came back to San Antonio.

Description
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.
