    Perfect place to have a quick bite or dinner before a show at the Holland. Very accommodating and insured our food got to us quickly. My cheeseburger with no bun was delicious.

    My steak was cooked properly but it had a lot of gristle throughout. Not usual for Zinc. Everything else was excellent.

    Our GSM wine suited both salmon and ribeye. Speaking of which, the ribeye special was a superb value and gratifyingly well prepared and served. Speaking of which, server Cole was informative and attentive.

    When placing my glass of wine, the steward knocked it over and it went in my wife’s direction. From the thighs down she was soaked. She was given soda water and towels. She dried off her ostrich purse and shoes as well. The table was cleaned and reset. The steward repeatedly apologized and we did tell her that my wife was ok and accidents happen. While she was cold and wet, we had a wonderful meal and our waiter was excellent. We had no dessert. It was surprisingly to us that we were given the full bill. I believe our waiter must have felt sorry for us as he brought us two bottles of water to take with us to the symphony performance.

    Service was slow and inefficient. Salmon and sauce was excellent, but Brussel sprouts were undercooked and not edible (too hard to chew) Bread & butter did not arrive before soup & salad, only when we asked about it. We arrived at 6 (as reservation was made) but did not have time to finish our meal and glass of wine before the 7:30 show.

    The single biggest benefit to dining at ZINC is when you want to enjoy a meal prior to seeing a show/concert at the Holland Center. On the two occasions we've done just that, our experience has been sufficient enough given the unparalleled convenience of simply walking upstairs to see the show. If I were evaluating ZINC outside of that context, I would be less impressed. I say that, not as a criticism so much as an acknowledgement that ZINC is not a full-service fine dining restaurant. The food has always been well-made and satisfying, but the menu is small and several of the dishes share elements, likely to accommodate for the fact that it doesn't operate on the same scale as a full-size standalone restaurant. The service is similar in that the staff is always friendly and polite, but both times we've had concerns about the speed with which we have been attended to by our waiter. This last time, it seemed like there was only a single waitstaff person for the entire dining room. There were others helping with running food and drinks and clearing tables, but they all looked like they were being asked to do too much. In conclusion, if you are seeing a show at Holland, don't hesitate to grab a table at ZINC for a pre-show meal. They fill that niche quite well. But if you are just looking for some fine dining in downtown Omaha, there are better options.

    Enjoyable evening meal and great service But we asked to take home extra food and had the waitress take our plates out into the kitchen to place leftovers in boxes. We were told as has been the routine to pick our leftovers up at the bar after the symphony. We came to the bar and there were no boxes of left overs and no one knew anything about them! Had been good to that point. We've picked up leftovers up at least 2 times before and no problem. Several people were also looking for their leftovers.

    My husband and I had a nice experience her before a symphony performance, 6pm reservation and 7:30pm showtime. Service was somewhat slow for us but we finished our meal with time to get to the show. Unfortunately there were several tables (some were even seated before us) that did not get their food before showtime and had to leave hungry and disappointed. Make sure and leave a good cushion of time if you plan to eat here.

    I had the grilled salmon entrée, and the vegetable kale soup. The salmon, brussels sprouts and potatoes were excellent, I did not care for the soup. My friends had the chicken entrée and thought that it was very good as well however, the green beans that came with it or not as tasty as she had hoped they would be. We will definitely be back.
