It was closed DOWN when we got there, not very happy that there is no communication between this restaurant and open table to let people from out of town know that the restaurant is in fact no longer in business.

Steak was very fatty and very hard to eat. Salmon was over cooked. Waitress was not sympathic to my complaint. Worst meal I ever had at a restaurant that is billed as high end. I can see why they are closing.

My sister & I were hoping to have a nice meal prior to a concert. She got there before me & ordered a drink which took 15 min. Mine took at least 15 min. We planned our order but waiter said we should try the "fixed price theater " menu which
took him a few minutes to bring. We ordered that as he said it was ready to plate. We got our first course 30 min later. Many people around us were being served and came in after us. Finally cancelled the rest of our order as we now had 10 min to get to our show. The kitchen did send out one commentary dish while we paid our bill. Very very very poor service. Cannot count on Zins for decent service. Especially before a show which they r in walking distance to three venues. Will not go there again.

I've been eating at Zin's for a long time at Zin's and was a little disappointed in the menu changes. I think it may be a momentary flick until it settles out. Look forward to eating their the next time I'm in town. Service was great as usual and love the option of valet parking.

One of the entrees had an issue. They fixed it right away and gave us a credit for one of our sides. Great that they try to make things right.

the tapas concept is fantastic. the ability toy and share a variety of plates makes the dining experience an adventure. the mixologist was just simply great. my Manhattans were are work of art.

We had high hopes for Mother's Day brunch after reading that Zin's was the best brunch spot in CR. Unfortunately it failed in every way possible, which was disappointing for our family members who drive an hour to get there. The service was insanely slow -- not so much our waitress, but rather the kitchen. The wait staff split our tapas in two courses. It took over an hour to get our first course, which was about 20% of our overall order. The second course arrived 30 minutes later -- all super small portions. We were there almost two hours and left hungry despite ordering 2-3 plates per person (and we were a table of mostly old women). The actual food was very average. Unfortunate...hope this place improves.

The only time I have been there was for Mother's Day brunch. Maybe they don't typically do brunch. Small plates/brunch don't really go together. We waited at least 45 minutes for our first plate 1 egg plate, 2 salad plates. English muffin was the third plate, might have been better served with the eggs. Waitress was not around much, we asked several people about our food. Food was decent, décor was nice, (other than my ripped leather chair).
