Breakfast on 9/27. Food was tasty and nicely presented. Seating outside very pleasant and as requested.. Once again service was slow and also forgetful. Ample opportunity for them to raise their game if they feel motivated do so.
We really enjoyed dining at Cafe Zinc. Both the food and service were excellent. We
definitely plan on going back when in the Midland area.
Food was delicious and not over priced. Mary Ann our waitress is fabulous.
Outdoor dining was elegant but not stuffy. The waitstaff was attentive without being obsequious. The menu was appropriately sized, with enough variety to satisfy everyone without being too large to make quality diminish. Our food was excellent, in significant quantities. The hummus appetizer was particularly tasty and well-presented. Price paid for quality received was well within bounds.
College friends met on us on their way to their cabin. We ate outside, liked the menu and the fact that we could delete some ingredients, and the service was excellent!
Very friendly staff. Our waiter was the best. If I could remember his name I would ask for him everytime I went to Cafe Zinc.
Alyson was great with service?
It is very pleasant sitting on the sidewalk separated from other tables by beautiful planters filled with still gorgeous and fresh flowers. I hope this becomes a permanent seating option once COVID-19 is gone. You watch passers-by, see friends you have not seen since March, all that while enjoying a very good mean (as usual), chat with friendly staff and eagerly await new desserts. An experience like no other!
lovely! tried a dish we were curious about. it was great — smoked fish plate.
our waiter was superb! we shared a great, gooey chocolate chip cookie afterwards and he warmed it for us with out being asked! that topped the goodness!
Great, fresh healthy food and fantastic service. The hummus appetizer is awesome.
Excellent food and service. My wife and I both had the Filet Oscar and it was delicious.
You can not beat outdoor dining at Cafe Zinc. Our server, Alyson, was amazing.
Always great food and service! Our favorite place when we come to michigan for the summer.
Had brunch. Took a while to be seated although not busy as the hostess was slow to provide service.
Dish was nicely presented but the hash browns and the chicken sausage patty were extremely salty - and I like salt !
Overall a pretty average experience...
The food is tasty, but you don’t get much for your money.
A great meal eaten outside with friends on a beautiful evening. Can't get much better!
6 women from all over MI very much enjoyed our lunch at Cafe Zinc! The menu made it hard to choose, the food was delicious, and the service was excellent!
CaFe Zn was an overall enjoyable experience. As a college kid, money is pretty tight but I was still able to afford a high quality meal with high quality service and ambience for my girlfriend and I. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for an experience that is a little classier than a bar and grill or mom and pop diner but, also not looking to break the bank.
We loved the food - hard to find duck confit in Michigan, and it was great. The staff was so gracious. We hope to come again!
our waitress, mary, was wonderful. we enjoyed a great birthday breakfast for my niece, stephanie. all of us left very happy.
It was my birthday and we had a lovely lunch outside. The menu had a nice selection of moderate to higher priced meals. I was surprised at the quantity of food that was served. I ordered the fish tacos and three were served with a side order of fries. They were very good, but more than I could eat, so I took some home for a later meal. My boyfriend got the prime rib French dip sandwich with a salad. He said both were excellent, but too much to eat at one setting; a great value for the price. Because it was my birthday, they offered me a free dessert. I chose the key lime tartlet which arrived adorned with fresh whipped cream and a lit candle. Yummy!
My only disappointment were the prices on the wine menu. It would be nice to have a house wine at a more reasonable price. However, we did enjoy a couple of drinks off the “specialty drink” menu.
Great way to spend your birthday
It has been over 5 months since we visited Zinc. The food and service was as good as when we visited last time. We will return.
Food has been exceptional every time we’ve dined here. Service was okay- not great, not bad. Diverse menu of offerings that should appeal to anyone.
Excellent food and I love eating out on the patio.
Great waitress ...excellent food....sat outside....
Enjoyed outdoor seating lunch by way of a reservation. Friendly, skilled staff and interesting, tasty food.
Always feel welcome, good and service is fantastic
Always a great place to get outstanding service with delicious food
We had a nice lunch outdoors. We felt comfortable with the social distancing and enjoyed finally getting to go to our favorite restaurant.
Absolutely love the Zinc. It’s Midland’s finest restaurant.
Love love love
Nice food selection and courteous staff. It’s not your typical New York bistro ... you can take your time. You never feel rushed. Quality of the food is good, flavors a bit more on the sophisticated side and nicely combined. Portions are just right, so don’t expect to take food home. This is not that kind of restaurant. You can dine outside, too and the street is quiet, making for a pleasant dining experience. We plan to come here regularly.
Very healthy food choices and meticulously prepared. Service was excellent as well. Highly recommended
Had a great table on the patio with gracious service. Loved the scallops with corn purée! Frites with truffle aioli is always a fav!
Wonderful restaurant in Midland to enjoy any meal of the day! Beautiful ambience and delicious food and drinks. The staff is attentive and professional. Several safety precautions have been taken to keep customers safe. One of my favorite places to go with friends.
We brought my mother-in-law who is 94 years old out to lunch/dinner. Food was excellent and the service is great! I totally recommend this place.
Service was great! Steak was excellent. Scallops were way overpriced at $34 for 3 very small scallops and a few potatoes / tomatoes. I left hungry.
Great job with the food and the safety!
Indoor or outdoor is great. Protocols are strictly followed.
