This is an upscale eatery. Small-ish menu. The service is friendly and gracious. The atmosphere is quiet, which is equally suited to a business meeting or romantic dinner.

We often dine at Zinc while visiting my husband's mother in Midland. It never disappoints; from wine to dessert the selections are always top notch and the service is excellent. The setting is beautiful and if you are there in the summer try to sit on the covered porch.

I was impressed with the interior design of this fine dining establishment. Pretty, unique and classy. Prices are on the high side. The menu is rather limited. French pastry chef supplies breads and desserts. As is often the case however, the desserts were beautiful but didn't taste that good. Portions are good size.

We had a business dinner at Café Zinc. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. The food was amazing. This is the fanciest restaurant I have eaten in.

This by far the best formal place to go in Midland. The H hotel has another restaurant but it is not worth the price. The staff here is friendly and the food is consistent

First time at Cafe Zinc. Nice menu and pleasant wait staff. Table placement makes it difficult to converse -- which detracts from the ambience. Prices seem a bit stiff for what is offered.

Beautiful and lovely atmosphere but pricey. Good quality food with presentation, but was still hungry afterward.
