I have eaten here several times. The food is excellent and so is the service. However, I was slightly disappointed with the desserts. Some look like great pastries but they are more like cakes. I do recommend Zinc with five stars as long as I do not include the desserts..

We were very pleased that the menu included Thai and Indian entres among the more standard fare. I asked the waiter if these items were more than an attempt to spice up the menu a bit He assured me that the kitchen really did know how to do quality Thai and Indian food. He was right.

I have always wanted to try Cafe Zinc and am very pleased that I had the opportunity to take my daughter to lunch there this week. The menu is very unique and offers a variety of tasty treats. We try not to consume wheat and I do not eat red meat. We were both able to find wonderful food on... More

We stopped in for brunch on a nice day in August. We ate on the great terrace in the shade and watched the city go by. Very enjoyable. Foodies will approve. You can buy baked goods inside at the counter. Good lunch.

I have been to Cafe Zinc twice in my visits to Midland and both times I was fairly impressed. The only criticism of the place is that seating can get rather tricky in the winter since there is limited indoor space. The outdoor patio however is great. They seem to serve a french bistro style cuisine which I found spot... More

Iconic restaurant in a great hotel. Disappointed with our steaks at this visit.. Meat was tough and served with french fries....Outback Steakhouse quality steak for $40. Desert great...staff outstanding. I guess, avoid the steaks.

A bit on the pricier side but good none the less. They have great takes on classics and use fresh ingredients. Everything is made in small batches so you really get good quality. It is also all made in house.

As my 'group' of girls go to different restaurants to eat in Midland and other places, we chose the Zinc. It was a very contemporary setting, quiet, clean and had excellent food. The price is up there, but that is to be expected for this quality of food. Great assistance with the people working there, easy to talk to and... More
