    We had a lovely meal here before a show at the Ace Hotel. The food was good, the service friendly and it felt like an early evening in Manhattan versus a hot day in LA. Definitely recommend for those looking for a place to grab a bite before a show.

    Decided to try Zinque since we were seeing a show next door at The Theater at Ace Hotel. Staff from hostess to waiter to bus team all friendly, attentive and helpful. The menu was unique and everything we had - food and cocktails - was tasty, original and very reasonably priced. Good job - will go again.

    Really enjoyed our dinner here before a show at the Ace Theatre. They were short-staffed, but the folks working were amazing and really nailed service. I also enjoy the wide variety of fresh and healthy offerings. Everything is prepared fresh. Our vegan and vegetarian guests were pleased.

    I was excited to try out the Zinque DTLA after having a great experience at the Newport Beach location a few years ago. It did not disappoint. We arrived early and I'm glad we did. The place really filled up shortly after we arrived and had already place our order. Our server very kindly advised us that if we waited too long to place our drinks order it might be quite a wait. Turns out we got our drinks very quickly. The really nice thing is that even though the place was full by the time we finished our meal, no one rushed us to vacate the table. In fact, we had to ask for the check!

    Great place if you are headed to The Orpheum Theater. Been there a couple of times now. The food is great and at a good price point for DTLA. The cocktails are expensive, but good luck finding them much less expensive anywhere in the area. The staff is super friendly! Service can get a little slow if they start to get busy, but it is usually easy to flag someone down and get whatever you need. If you have a show to catch, you might want to tell your server in advance so they'll know to scoot the check out.

    Great place to eat before a Joe Jackson concert at the Orpheum Theatre. Loved the tuna tartare flatbread as an appetizer and enjoyed steak-frites with peppercorn sauce. Very French in an Arts Nouveau building district.

    They should heighten the security, I was confronted by a tweeker while in the bathroom. The manager was very unenthusiastic to help find the camera footage to identify the suspects. Foods alright, DTLA is a mess don’t blame it on Zinque 🤙

    Lovely spot for dinner!! Portions were substantial and everything tasted delicious! We had steak frites and the salmon plate, and the flavors were spot-on. Our server, Ivan, was absolutely wonderful - attentive, great recommendations, and friendly. The only drawback was the slightly noisy street traffic (we sat outside), but the location in busy DTLA creates that by default - there is plenty of indoor seating if that is what is preferred.

    The restaurant is in serious need of a few professionals and an expediter to bring them up to a reasonable level of service. The evening started with multiple missteps on my husband's martini. He'd ordered a dry Bombay Sapphire martini with an olive. The server came back after a while to say there was no Bombay Sapphire - which we didn't mind - so DH switched the martini to Grey Goose Vodka with the same "dry, with an olive" instruction. The drink arrived with a huge slab of lemon peel instead of the requested olive. I spotted it heading our way, and said "that really doesn't appear to be an olive!" so the server returned with three olives. A bit of overkill, but unfortunately the glass was full to the brim so there was no place to put them even though I traded the lemon peel for the olives. The waiter brought a napkin. He tried, and points for that. I suspect the bar was at fault on this one, but it's possible the waiter also doesn't know enough about drink orders to communicate clearly. Still, no harm no foul. Sadly, the evening continued its downward trajectory. We'd each ordered a salad as a starter, followed by a flatbread for each of us. After a surprisingly long wait, a single flatbread - mine - was delivered to the table along with the offer of two plates so we could share. I explained this particular flatbread was my main course, and the runner left. I ate my flatbread while we waited. And waited. Finally the salads arrived with my husband's flatbread in quick pursuit. We even received the wine we'd ordered to go with the mains...eventually. There were other small things, but the overall impression was amateur hour. The room is nice, the choices reasonable, and the server friendly if not particularly polished. But the kitchen is apparently in chaos when they can't figure out the timing for a basic order of two salads and two flatbreads for two people. The place wasn't even that busy or I would have cut them slack. Sadly, wasted potential.

    We have rated at Zinque several times and enjoyed it. However, this time things were very different. Staff were curt and dismissive, food was not served to us at anywhere near optimum temperature and one member of our party of four didn’t get served until all others at our table were finished with their meals.

    I'd booked Zinque for a date night after having a pleasant previous experience at this location. There were plenty of reservations open for the evening, and I now see why. The restaurant was maybe half full I that, but our server took 10 min to come over once seated and take our drink and appetizer orders. He was slightly helpful in letting us know one of our preferred options was out of stock, so he recommended the more expensive alternative. Thanks. When our tuna tartar did come, it was WAY too citrusy and barely tasted of anything but grapefruit. To accompany the healthy sized portion of tun were four, hard pieces of bread each about the size of a quarter. With two people those went fast, so we ended up just eating the rest with a spoon. Thirty min later and no word from our server despite him bouncing from table to table around us, I flagged him down so we could put in the rest of our order. We elected to split the branzino which I'd call mediocre at best. The only real flavor came from the chimichurri, which I'd hardly say warranted a price of $34. All told when leaving I had to apologize to my date because I'd spent the day hyping up the restaurant. TLDR, if you do go to Zinque come for lunch, flag your server down fast, and order the burger.

    The location is great, very convenient to the Ace Hotel and many theaters. The atmosphere was nice, even though we sat outside on the street. Our servers were really nice and the food arrived quickly (almost too quickly, as we received one entree before the starter). The cocktails were *excellent*. Really, it made the whole rather average meal worthwhile because they were clearly made by a skilled bartender. Espresso Martini and the La Francaise. I had the quiche lorraine, which came out overdone and tiny, like one of those little frozen quiches. Very thin, mostly crust. Fries were good. Wife had the steak, which was cooked well. The prawns were tiny and cool, but flavorful. So, it was a mixed bag. But the service and cocktails were great, so I'd recommend popping in for a cocktail for sure!

    Deviled eggs and charcuterie boards were excellent. The bread on the salami toast was way too hard but still tasty. The steak frites was delicious, ask for both the chimichurri and peppercorn sauces! The rotisserie chicken won raves, as well as the quinoa bowl with hanger steak. The alsacienne flatbread was dry but flavorful. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent spot in DTLA! Service was amazing, which is rare for dtla. They have amazing mocktails that are delicious and beautiful. Very appreciated. The food was excellent (my only issue was with the original bread we got, it was teeth breaking hard. But they brought us new bread that was perfect). Few steps to the Orpheum, highly recommend eating here before the show!!!!

    The food it pretty good, and the prices are really good for a DTLA restaurant. We also like the negronis. But the service was terrible. Our server disappeared for long stretches. Two at our table had their entrees delivered about 7 minutes before the other two arrived. Getting the bill and then the receipt for the bill took unreasonable amounts of time.

    Zinque is great except for one thing. They break the most basic rule of restaurants. The food runners don't know where the food goes so they either get the wrong table or get the wrong person. Plus, they have to interrupt your conversation to get the food to the right person. With a large enough table you don't always know what people at the other end of the table order. Restaurant 101 - mark the position of the order on the ticket so the runners deliver the right food to the right people.

    Food was amazing! The smoked salmon with the potatoes au gratin were so delicious. My fiancé had the steak frites and that was very tasty. The service however was non existent. The waiter was rude when asked what wines to pair our food with. After food was dropped off, we didn’t see our waiter for almost 35 minutes. Food was delicious but service was horrible. Would only recommend take out.
