ZINC Holland Center Dining
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!
We had a 6:15 reservation for a 7:30 performance. We ended up getting to our seats just as they were dimming the lights. Service was slow, slow, slow. Slow to be greeted by our waiter, slow to have our order taken, our wine was delivered mid-way through the meal, waited 20 minutes after the entree to ask about our dessert and bill. Rather than a relaxing evening and stroll to our seats, we were on edge waiting for the waiter and then finally, for the bill and the credit card to be returned. This place is hit and miss on timing. Last month it worked out perfectly, which is why we came back this month, after having stayed away for a year. Will not return this performance season.
Zinc is a good option if you want to eat prior to an event at the Holland Center. Go early. We ate at 6:30 before a 7:30 show. Two different items we ordered were sold out which was disappointing.
Our server was amazing. Location is great if you are attending an event at The Holland. It’s noisy like a cafeteria, and the menu is not Keto friendly.
Atmosphere was great. Food was excellent. We went in before a concert we were seeing at the Holland theatre. We were 15 min past our reservation time but the restaurant wasn’t busy and there other people still dining. Sadly, our sever saw us sit down and I saw her roll her eyes. She was ready to be done for the night and clearly was not happy about waiting on us. The food was incredible. I would like to have tried desert but she brought us the check and never asked if we wanted any. It’s too bad her rushing us made the experience less than exceptional.
I would definitely go back if I am ever in town again.
Our experience was excellent, Sam, our wait staff person was an extremely pleasant young lady and really helped make our evening great!
I have eaten at Zinc many times and have enjoyed the food , the service is excellent .
It was the first time eating at ZINC. The service was outstanding and the meal was awesome. You were not felt rushed the waitress provided us suggestions as well as drink suggestions. I would totally recommend this prior to the concert. We did not realize they were open for lunch during the week. We will be going for lunch in the future. Thanks for a great evening.
Service has been hit and miss for years at this restaurant, but it's convenient to go to before a concert at the Holland Center. This visit featured outstanding service from James H. The table was pre-set with rolls and butter, so we could nosh while our food order was taken. Delivery of drink orders was slow, but that was due to drinks being handled by an bartender outside of Zinc, rather than Zinc itself. (Note: if you advertise Perrier on the drink menu, don't stock red grapefruit Perrier in a can as your only choice. Pony up for a supply of the unflavored stuff in a bottle. Sheesh.) Food orders came quickly, although as always, the food is never piping hot - it must be coming from a kitchen some distance away. The food was good and portions were reasonable. Desserts were delectable, but on the small side for sharing, so be sure to order your own dessert.
Really nice place with a good, seasonal menu and good variety. Very convenient for shows at the Holland. Never feel rushed.
We went about 90 minutes before a show, and were done about 10 minutes before showtime. There was a rush on salmon, our waitress said, which delayed our meal a bit. The kale salad was delicious, the veggies gratin were good, if cheesy. The wine selection was very good; the PN and white Burgundy we drank were generously poured and quite good. Our waitress was very pleasant. As it was just before a show, it was busy and a bit noisy but not loud. Lots of nice natural light came through the windows. They conveniently offer sippy cups to take drinks into the show, and refrigerate your leftovers for you to pick up after the show. All in all, a very pleasing, accommodative experience.
It was a very nice evening. The food and service were wonderful. It was also very convenient, the dinner and shower the same location.
