Granted, not the most amazingly progressive food, but it is a PERFECT neighborhood bistro. It's equally good for a hearty stew on a chilly Tuesday evening when I don't want to cook and a quiche and salad on a warm, breezy Sunday monring (the wall of windows facing the street open when the weather is nice). It is always a joy to eat here.

I frequently visit Chicago from NYC. Bistrot Zinc is one of the few indulgences I make time for when in town. The food is consistently good, and the service is, as described below, helpful without being intrusive. The wine list is not overly expensive and there is a good [select]ion of wines by the glass. This last time, my colleague and I explored the tastes of March menu. The roasted endive tart was delightfully refreshing, and the salmon coulibiac was prepared with a lovely, creamy mushroom sauce. My colleague enjoyed the grilled pork tenderloin just as much. Dessert was wonderful as well, with a creme brulee flavored with just the right amount of vanilla, and her mini warm apple tart was right on also. I look forward to my next visit!

I am so disappointed in this restaurant. It seems that every time I go there, the food is worse than the last time. I only went again because I had a coupon and I was sorely disappointed! I was there this evening and we both ordered teh steak frites. The steak is a cheap quality thin steak and the fries were rubbery and semi warm. The waiter was very nice so you can't balme him for the bad food that comes out of the kitchen. That was the only good thing about this place. Take my advice, skip this restaurant even if you get a coupon.

Truly, a casual little French joint. Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. I feel like I'm on a Parisian vacation every time I get there.

The food is just excellent, and the place is warmly decorated. feels like you're actually in france. service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. the poulet grand mere is so amazing i can't believe it's chicken! lamb or beef stew in puff pastry are also excellent. prices are reasonable, between $14-20, but well well worth it.
