    Nice selection with interesting takes on classic restaurant dishes, with options for all ages and a nice dessert menu. Great service. A wonderful meal before our show at the Holland.

    The food was OK. Mine arrived barely warm, and they took it back to the kitchen and it came back piping hot. The server was good, but seriously overworked, as the place appeared to be sorely understaffed. It was very loud, tables are really close together the benefit of the place was it was at the venue where we wanted to be, and so there were no hassles with parking or being on time. We would probably not choose to dine here again.

    As a frequent patron of the Zinc, I am always happy with the friendly, attentiveness the staff. The cheesecake was wonderful. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the special last night. The pork chop was tough and much too thick, and the potatoes were room temperature when they arrived at the table.

    Zinc offered a convenient and delicious meal before a concert we attended. Jackie, the woman who fill our waters an drink order at the start, acknowledged how busy the restaurant, was but jumped in and took our orders to make sure our meals got into the queue. Because of her initiative and good service, we finished with time to spare. The food, staff and location get high marks from us.

    I consider this to be a fine dining experience. I thought for their price points, more options should be available to select from the menu. When asked for a little more bread, we were Told only 2 per reservation! The meatloaf was not as flavorful as it sounded like it could be as was the salmon. They listed soup on their paper menu but there was no soup. Now for the minor things but still an important thing: the host had a golf like pullover and to me, a crisp business shirt would have complimented his role , our table rocked so our server put a Napkin to keep it stable. In my mind all that should have been dealt with before customers came in. Server was nice but honestly the interaction wasn’t anything to write home about. I wanted this to be a special Dining experience, like the kinds I have always Had at the Flatiron when it was open and quite honestly there’s no reason why it shouldn’t have been considering the venue and performances. This was my second time there; hoping that it would be different than the first time; unfortunately it was not. I will not be back.

    When my wife and I arrived we were greeted by a woman that apparently was the FOH manager. She didn’t appear to be enjoying her shift. No sign of a welcoming personality, something that is expected in food service professionals that work the FOH. There were approximately 14 tables, most of which had an average of two to four people each table. There were 4 servers. The service was noticeably chaotic. It took longer than it should have to receive waters and menus. The waters were delivered by a server from another section. Took a while to receive our drinks. The food was very good! And prices were reasonable. Our server was very friendly. As a side note, I should mention that I have spent over 20 years as a professional in food service and have worked both front and back of the house. So, I get that there are those times during service when the rhythm isn’t happening. But, this is THE Holland Center! A world renowned, acoustic masterpiece when it comes to entertainment venues! So, the restaurant that is housed in there, should have professionals who are “on” at all times! You should be freaking rockstars when on the floor! We will dine there again, I just hope that the night goes better for the FOH staff.

    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.

    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.
