Not only is Zinc so convenient when going to the Holland, the food is uniformly excellent and imaginative.
We were pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. My husband had the filet and I had the mac n cheese. The filet was wonderful. The Mac n cheese was a little gummy and the cheese sauce was thick.
It's a great place to dine before a concert or other event at the Holland. Parking is easy because you get there early, the food is very good and changes from time to time. There could have been a few more blueberries in my salad, but other than that, the dinner was delicious; well prepared, served attractively.
We weren’t going to an event at the Holland, just one nearby. This was a nice, intimate space, good for a romantic evening out. The server was just the right amount of attentive, and the food was excellent.
Only open 2.5 hrs before Holland Center perfomances. Fantasic place to have dinner before a show!
The staff was friendly and our server was very helpful. We eat a special diet and she knew what was what on the menu. The Symphonic Salad is top notch!
The only negative I have is the time it took me to figure out how and then make the reservation. The internet site was difficult to use and I about gave up after trying for some time without luck to make the reservation. Even after I got so I knew how to do things, I took some time to get finished and to have some feeling that I had got the job done correctly. We have generally made a reservation for 12:30PM on Sunday and that was not even a possibility so we selected 12:45PM and came early and were seated right away. We will be back, when the next Pops concert is available. Hope this message helps in some way. Sorry to be so critical, but it is how I feel.
We were seated 5 min. before reservation time; 25 min later we were told our order would be out in 3 minutes. Instead it came out 50 minutes after we were seated! One order was meatloaf. It was barely warm. The other order was for the "half" salad. We were charged for the full salad. When we commented, both of our meals was comped. That was nice, but why should we come back? This venue is geared to get people to the performance on time. We had to eat in a hurry for that to happen.
A lovely experience in a warm and inviting room.
The food choices are always above ordinary . Of course, the flavored butter is the BEST!👍👍
Always good - good variety and interesting selections.
Open faced beef sandwich and kale salad were great. Right size portions. Citrus cake was excellent. Will be back! Excellent service!
We were very graciously accommodated for our last-minute request to add a third person to our party. While fulfilling this request did to seem to create problems for Zinc on this particular occasion, we do know that at times it can. We truly appreciate the effort to accommodate our request.
Convenient right before the symphony performance. Nice atmosphere.
Our dining experience was very pleasant and tasty. The price was very reasonable! Of course, being able to go into the concert hall from the restaurant was most convenient. We had found a parking place nearby because of our earlier reservation. Without hesitation, I will dine at Zinc again!
Excellent! Food was delicious and service was perfect.
Our waitress was crabby. She snapped at me 2 or 3 times! I ignored it b/c I wasn't going to let it ruin my night. The venue was cold. Food was average, There are better restaurants in town when you have a special night out.
I already have recommended it! It’s a fun way to start a cultural evening!
Eating at Zinc makes the whole evening so much more enjoyable. Food and service was great. We plan to eat at Zinc every time we go to the Holland.
As usual, the Zinc staff and food are outstanding and we easily arrived at the show on time.
Super nice waitress and waiter.
The food was excellent. It wasn't too busy so noise was not an issue.
Loved the infused butter!
Great service and fabulous location. Wonderful food!
The venue is only open when events are taking place at the Holland. The reservation slots where 5pm or 7pm. It would have been nice to have a 6pm option, and I made the reservation a week in advance so I am not sure if they just don't offer a 6pm option. The food was good.
Very pleasant experience. Our waiter, James, was wonderful.
Great ambiance, great service, great food! WMade for a very nice evening.
Chuck called us and was able to move our reservation up to a better time and that meant a lot to us as well as super service from April and even a good conversation with the couple seated next to us
Good food. Very relaxing before the show. Convenient.
We booked as we were going to a show. Were told they didn’t have one dish my husband wanted and almost everything else apart from burgers and Mac and cheese would take too long. They shouldn’t take bookings that are too late before a show. We got to eat about half our meal
I felt bad for the hostess as she could not seat us at our reservation time as other guests that had been seated for awhile & had dinner were not getting up to turn over their table. So the later reservation guests could not be seated & then finally when we were the waitress was really hurrying to get to us & get our food out. They did an excellent job in working together & making everyone happy. We made the show on time thanks to the excellent staff!
Service was extremely slow - it took over 30 minutes to get our cocktails and longer for our food, which was only warm. The sauce on my meat entree was congealing. We had to stand up to leave to get our bills. We had 5:45 reservations and barely able to get to our seats by curtain. They need more help apparently. We will continue to dine there as it is extremely convenient to drive to one location to park, eat, be entertained, and leave.
If you want a burger and standard beverage choice beforehand that is convenient to your show, this is an okay spot. If you are looking for anything more, the restaurants in the near area will likely please you more.
Delightful evening and delicious food. Fast, efficient and great service.
Enjoy this experience when attending concerts. Park once and enjoy a leisurely pace dining and then attending the concert.
Great way to relax and dine before attending a performance. Atmosphere is calm, menu offered a nice selection of lighter fare as well as full meals. We were told this menu changes twice during the season. Our meals were very good with “dainty” portions. The service was excellent. Attentive, helpful, well informed about what they are serving. Kudos. Drinks and wine list was adequate for this venue. Dessert offerings were unique and quite tempting. Overall, a pleasant experience, no regrets. Will most likely return prior to the next performance we attend.
If the food was more on point I would recommend. Location makes it convenient to Holland Center events/major plus.
The food was excellent and the staff was friendly. I was disappointed in aspects of the service. We ordered a bottle of wine for the table. The bottle was served to us UNCORKED which is an unheard of procedure. No opportunity to inspect the cork or sample the wine first. The server poured a nine ounce pour into the first glass and set the bottle on the table and told us to “divvy” up the rest. It was an extremely classless presentation of wine. And by over pouring the first glass it made the rest of the pours uneven as we attempted to fairly “divvy” up the rest of the bottle. It was completely unbalanced between the delicious food and the serving of the wine. I expect more from the Holland.
Allow yourself at least an hour and a half. Waitress was distracted. Deposited food and disappeared before you were able to ask for anything else. ordered wine with dinner and dinner was pretty much gone before it got there. They are used to one sitting so apparently they think that if you are finished before the concert starts, you're good. Limited menu becomes more limited when several items were not available that night (not out, never available.) they have been better in the past but this night was subpar. Having said that, we like the convenience of not having to walk from somewhere else to the concert venue.
From the hostess to our server Jackie...our evening at Zinc was fabulous...tasty food and remarkable cocktails!...perfect start to Lizz Wright concert!
Service was great, James was our server and very personable! Food was not very hot. Had the steak sandwich, not much flavor.
Food is excellent
Bar service and mixed drinks were terrible, just get a glass of wine
Dinner in the past has been disappointing until the last symphony. We are optimistic that they certainly could not screw up a hamburger. Our order was not even close to being delivered while 3 tables who arrived after us were served. Then, 40 minutes later the entire plate was room temperature. We recieved our new entre 20 min later and the cheese was burnt and cold. It was awful!
