                                    Our server Meena (sp) was very good and attentive. I had the meatloaf, which was good. My wife had a salad with chicken that she enjoyed. A good place to eat if you are going to an event at the Holland. I would not choose to eat there if I were not going to an event in the same building.

                                    We were there for the deGrasse Tyson venue, and we have dined at Zinc before. It never disappoints! Excellent food and service. Reasonable prices for this type of venue. We had the spring tart, which was absolutely delicious. I had a bowl of the chicken tortilla soup, which was yummy, because I wanted to have room for dessert. My choice was strawberry shortcake. The couple next to use each had one of the other dessert choices and we all felt they were delicious. I really appreciate their varied menu. Next time, it's "Mr Holland's Meatloaf"...just because I had a difficult time deciding. I appreciate that there is a quality restaurant in the Holland Center.

                                    Five family members had a fab dinner before attending the lecture by Dr. Tyson. Choices, preparation, and presentation were outstanding. Will be back before all future Holland events.

                                    The Mahi Ceviche "blossomed" with flavor. The pan roasted salmon was a show stopper. My new favorite restaurant.

                                    Was freezing. Under vent possibly. Hard for us to enjoy ourselves because of air on us. Food and service were good.

                                    The dining room was cold, and pretty empty because I mistook the showtime and got there an hour early. So there is no explanation for why fresh English peas were over cooked to an army green, served alongside green beans for some reason that were sautéed to within an inch of their lives. Risotto was a pile of rice that was somehow both mushy and dried out. It could be a beautiful space with intimate, elegant details… But alas. No zinc bar, no flowers, no frosty buckets of champagne. Not even a reasonable cocktail list. A shame… Hope this place upgrades someday but until then will not be dining here again.

                                    our food took awhile to get to our table. Upon arrival, the food was warm and not hot. I had Mr. Holland's meatloaf, it was served with augratin potatoes and whole carrots. My Partner had a Short Rib Burger, served with French fries. The carrots were under cooked, the potatoes were cold and the portion of meatloaf seemed small. they did bring me another portion of meatloaf, without me asking for it. My partners food was also cold, as far as dining there again, probably not, there just was no value for the food that was served.

                                    Lovely waitperson. I think her name was Julie? Food was ok. Soup (broccoli asparagus cream soup) had a wonderful flavor but was way to thick. Needed a little stock. My salmon was done perfectly but the wedge salad was a little bland and the wedge looked tired. Strawberry shortcake needed more strawberries and the shortcake was a little tough. Good value for the money however.

                                    Our food was excellent! The service on the other hand was not so great. We sat there for about 10 minutes before anyone came to our table (& we were seated by a host). The server was friendly and apologetic. We try to be patient w/ Covid and staffing and the holidays. We place our order with our drinks right away. My husband asked for his soup before the meal. I ordered a side salad - that shouldn't need to be specified to be prior. We didn't see a server until our drinks and the next person was a gentleman that brought out our food - before the soup/ salad. We mentioned the soup/ salad. My husband still wanted his and I asked to take mine off (my food was already here). They were extremely friendly. The food was amazing! Although mine was supposed to come w/ scalloped potatoes (part of why I ordered it) and I got mashed. Oh well. At this point we were going to eat what we had. Our show started in 25 minutes. They brought my husband the wrong soup, which they corrected. They did bring me a salad "at no charge." That was very kind. Our server never came up and apologized for the mix up. The service was either really off that night or they need to be better organized. Overall, we'd go back since the food was amazing and the convenience. We planned on 1 1/2 hours before our show. I wouldn't do any less than that. If you want dessert plan on 2 hours. Again, worth it for the food, but grad a drink on your way in. You'll need it!

                                    Traditionally, a night at the symphony for us began with dining at a favored restaurant and then rushing to finish in order to arrive at the Holland in time to park and take our seats. We dined at Zinc for the first time a year before the pandemic, choosing it merely for convenience. We were both very pleased with the experience, and now generally book a table before most concerts we attend. The description "gem" may be overused, but it truly fits!

                                    We loved the convenience to the Holland Center! It was so easy. We will do it again! Food was flavorful and prepared as expected. Carrots were good but not done. Our reservations were for 5:30pm and we had a leisurely meal with dessert and had no issues getting to our seats prior to the performance.

                                    French onion soup had unusual seasoning. Hamburger was real done plus. Salad great. Decor was not done abstract pictures that were sub par. Could use a musical. Thanks heme. Maybe a opry house or a concert or dance. Very low star. Being at the concert is. “A” plus. Convenience “ A. “ plus.
