Fodor's Review

Crisp walls, warm tile floors, and tall windows are bright and inviting in this stylishly modern French bistro, which feels like a country house in Provence. The kitchen turns out expertly prepared and refreshingly simple classics like steak frites (with fries), coq au vin, and grilled pork loin with collard greens and baby turnips. The long, zinc-topped bar, always full and determinedly sophisticated, is the best Lenox can offer for nightlife.

This place stinks!

Went there recently with my wife and have to agree with previous comments about this place going straight down hill. Go to Church Street Cafe or Cafe Lucia (if you prefer Italian food). The food at Zinc was distinctly average but, I thought, quite pricey for the level of quality. This is a change from previous visits when I thought that, while the service wasn't very good, that the food was ok. I wonder, also, who orders the wine. The house wine is

substantially below average and the wine list seems to be completely lacking in imagination. They might try finding someone who actually enjoys drinking wine to help with the ordering. Our server must have been having a bad day because she wasn't very pleasant nor was she very friendly. The table next to us remembered her from last time they were there and asked to be seated in another section. We had already ordered or I would have done the same. The woman posing as manager on duty was completely indifferent/oblivious to her surroundings. I think that this restaurant has lived its' day....go elsewhere

*From 5 star down to 2 star*

I have for a few years recommended this place to friends and family. But something has happened to the once wonderful little place.

best dining in Berkshires

I love this place! Sophisticated gourmet dining in bright art filled rooms, professional yet friendly service and food to die for! Chef Mike Stahler's creations include a wonderful salad of mixed greens with goat cheese wrapped in phyllo ($10), grouper with sweet corn, fennel and rhubarb sauce ($25), lamb loin with artichoke barigoule and potato puree ($24) and a wonderful creme brulee and apple tart tatin($6). . There are unusual after dinner drinks

such as a cappucino martini with vodka, kahlua, baileys and expresso. Wines are available by the glass, half bottle and bottle and range in price from $35 to $250 with some excellent selections in every price range. We always try to dine at Bistro Zinc before enjoying any of the many cultural offerings in the Berkshires and we have always enjoyed the fine dining experience it has to offer.

Pretty good for only dessert in off season

We were treated very well as walk ins on a Monday night in late April, only wanting dessert and coffee. A lovely looking place with good food.... in a walking district.
