I am a foodie. If you're a foodie, you're probably reading this trying to decide if you want to visit Zin. I am completely on the fence on how to sway you on this one but here is my experience. The ambiance of the resturant was great - romantic and cozy. After a day of wine tasting and hanging out at Bear Republic Brewery, I didn't care too much for the wine list although there were some great wines. The food on the menu was not too exciting. I was expecting more eclectic, out of the ordinary food to match the style of the establishment from the outside and in. I had the braised short ribs. The sauce was way to tart but the basil corn salsa on the side was fabulous. The mashed pototos were runnyand grainy much like instant. The wierd thing was my husband had the Sunday special, Fried Chicken with mased potatos and his tasted like real taters. When I told the hostess/manager what I thought about the mashed potatos on my dish, she got really insulted and said we don't open cans or use anything instant here! Then she walked away from our table never to be seen. Okay, I was just advising her that the mashers sucked and to let the cook know!! A simple apology would have been all I needed. The attitude from the hostess, ruined my mood for Zin, and I will probably never give it another chance. In my opinion, I should have stayed at Bear Republic and had some of their yummy brewerery food.
Pros: nice ambience, nice decor
Cons: highly over priced ordinary menu
