About this Place
Our philosophy is simple. Every need, every guest, every time.
Couple that with our award winning small plates creations and you have the Zins Experience.
We're located in Downtown Cedar Rapids, in the historic Ely Building on the corner of Third Street and Second Avenue. That's us with the white Zins flag and the valet parking.
While we specialize in a small plate format - allowing you a wide array of options every time you dine with us, we also have options that cater to the larger appetite with our "Big Plate" and "Bar Top" specials.
Our bar is not only stocked with premium spirits, but we also have the finest wine preservation system - also known as "The Oz" that allows us to pour fine wines by the glass, instead of the bottle.
Spend some time perusing our lunch, dinner and brunch menus, or call us for the next event you need catered or for private parties. Whether you sit in the main restaurant, at the Chef's Table or in the Ruffalo Room, our top notch servers will ensure the "Zins Experience."
Also open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch Tuesday through Friday.
