The prices are high, but not unwarranted for the quality of the food. My only complaint was that they sat me at the bar when I came in by myself. Not particularly comfortable, and not appreciated when the restaurant was 70% empty with ample tables available. When the dinner rush I suppose they were expecting didn't show up, I got... More

Food quality and service is consistently good. Best value is lunch- dinner a little pricey.The chicken is my favorite and the beet salad is excellent. Zinc always has great Michigan beers available too.always the restaurant we return too.

I have never been disappointed with my meals here, and they have always impressed my dining companions (one of whom is now my wife!). I had duck here once that was one of the best meals I've ever had, as well as steaks, and desserts! Do yourself a favor and check it out some night!

We had a birthday dinner here recently which was exquisite. From entering the restaurant and through our stay was quite an experience. Food was exceptional as well as the service. The four of us combined had, lamb and bison, scallops, steak, and chicken. All meals were cooked perfectly as requested. Sides accompanying the meal were also delicious. Thanks to Tommy... More

The Zinc is always a treat. Sometimes I stop for an afternoon coffee and dessert...other times dinner or lunch with friends. Always geat food and service. Great choice for breakfast as well....don't forget dessert or freshly baked bread to go.

Excellent service, excellent food, great wines...atmosphere is reminiscent of a European Bstro. The bakery items are all very good, several european-style hard breads...always a wonderful experience

If you are looking for a great place with great food, you should definitely go here! Arguably the best food in Midland! Their food is always delicious and filling. They have their own pastry chef that makes incredible desserts (and they have a display case for you to great bread and desserts on the go). Definitely a must go-to when... More

Never been disappointed. Menu changes very little but always specials. Service is very good. No reservations, so have a plan B, which is not so easy in this town. Food has not disappointed. Prices are a bit high. But again good food is hard to find in this town.

My daughter and I grabbed a late lunch at Cafe Zinc - you can get the lunch menu up until 5 PM! The offerings seem pricey at first, but the portions are very large and the breads served on the side are gourmet. I had the Vegtable Tofu Pad Thai which was excellent, hot and pefectly presented. My daughter enjoyed... More

One of Midland's best restaurants with a unique selection of both meat and vegetarian entrees. They also make the best mojito in town ! Summer is always special with their outdoor dining option. Classy, friendly service, and even a small bakery counter for take-home breads & desserts.
