In a very cold night out at the Symphony, Zinc, right there at the Holland, was a perfect place for dinner. It was easy for the six of us to talk, and the food was delicious. The service got us in and out without rush and the right amount of attention. Definitely I plan to return!

My favorite aspect of dining at Zinc is the convenience of eating at the same venue where I am attending a show and not having to find parking at 2 different places. Service was outstanding and food was very good. I would like a little larger menu, but I am happy to sacrifice that for the convenience.

It was nice to park once for dinner at Zinc, and then to just walk down the hall to the Holland’s Christmas show. This is a nice venue, and nice, but small, menu. An enjoyable evening, but If you’re looking for a stellar gourmet meal, look further.

Great if you are attending a event at Holland, a nice place to have a meal before the Theater since it’s inside the beautiful Holland Theater

The atmosphere was perfect for a dinner before the show at the Holland. The drink and dinner menu provided enough options to have a very nice and enjoyable dinner. The service was excellent and so were the food choices.

The restaurant is tucked inside the Holland Center, making it really convenient for a pre-performance meal. The surroundings were a little sparse, but the food and service more than made up for the lack of ambiance.
We had the meat loaf medallions and salmon, and both were quite good. Our server was friendly and courteous. I would dine there again when seeing a show.

We have tried twice to eat at Zinc and unfortunately both experiences have been disappointing. First time, the service was extremely slow and the food arrived to our table cold. This time, we had what seemed to be an efficient waitress, but obviously she was trying to service too many tables at one time. We ordered cocktails upon our arrival at 6 p.m. and waited 40 minutes for our drinks. (Once arrived, our cocktails were very good). People arrived later than us and received their food promptly. For some reason we waited an hour and 15 minutes for a hamburger that was delicious but we only had ten minutes to eat it before being late to the Rita Moreno show. The delay in service was adjusted on our bill by our very nice and vey apologetic waitress, but we most likely will never eat at Zinc again.

Went to Zinc on a date with my husband. Beautiful setting, staff was very kind. We were able to communicate without talking over others. The only downside would be the people seated next to us complaining about the table having wheels. Highly recommend. We will definitely go again.

I eat at Zinc when I am attending an event at the Holland Center. I have always had good service and a fine meal. I was suprised this last time as my waitress remembered me and brought me an ice tea when she came to welcome me and ask for my order.

Seated us immediately. House red and soup de jour wonderful....then where is the rest of our food? Waited and waited and waited....the salmon on the salad was too hot and the burger was like a patine from the freezer and too cold and the fries frozen with some seasoning on them. They comped the soup because of the wait...kind of ruined the beginning of a night at the theater.

ZINC is a great place to eat before a performance at the Holland. It was a little noisy because the floors are cement and there is a lot of glass, but they keep the tables pretty far apart so it's easy to navigate the space. The menu is diverse and the flavor of the food is great. Because everyone is there about the same time with the same targeted end time, the wait staff is working hard to get everyone's order. It took a bit to get bar orders from the wait staff. Would suggest getting a drink from the bar before going to the restaurant (the same bar serves the restaurant as the general area outside the restaurant). The wait staff was very friendly, worked very hard.

We had the Maple Miso Mustard Salmon, Pumpkin Spaetzle, Green Goddess Kale Salad, and Fall Vegetable Bisque, which were all delicious. Our server was top-notch and told us about little extras that made our first time here really enjoyable, like taking our drinks to go for the show and keeping our leftovers in the fridge so we could pick them up afterward.

Have wanted to try Zinc prior to a symphony performance. Four of us dined. Restaurant was not crowded. There was a large wedding taking place. Perhaps we hit Zinc on an "off" night. Staff seemed rushed even though only half the tables were filled. We had different entrees, all of which arrived lukewarm. The meatloaf sounded good and the topping was flavorful but the meat had an institutional look to it. And, again, it was barely warm. I know the soup of the day was good (and barely warm). I would really like to support this venue, however, they need to improve quality as our dinners were not a good value. Our dining experience was a disappointment.

The staff bent over backwards accommodating us since they had no reservation for us in spite of the fact that I had a confirmation from Open Table! Somebody needs to get their act together.

I really like Open Table but I really need a guarantee that there will actually be a reservation in my name. Embarrassing!!
Please fix this!!!

On the night of Tuesday May 22nd we ordered the tenderloin open-faced sandwich the beef had no flavor it seems like it was left over I ordered mine medium and it came well done the Truffle fries were each about one inch long we really thought that everything had been saved over from the previous day

My friend and I both ordered the meatloaf medallions. We both felt they were ok but definitely not worth $18.00. Mashed potatoes were so so. Veggies all 3 were bland.
My sister ordered the gnocchi and said it was very good.
The hostess was not on top of things. One ran ahead of us and placed the menus. We were not sure what was happening. There was only one other table of customers at the time.
