Good food and service
We were traveling through and relying on previous reviews, chose this restaurant. Food was very good, very substantial portions. Service was exceptional. Waitress became a friend. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Highly recommended

What a pleasant surprise to
What a pleasant surprise to find this kind of food/service/ambience in the middle of Washington. The staff was very helpful, from giving directions to making recommendations.

Who knew Yakima would have such a wonderful restaurant. The cannelloni was so delicious I may never be able to order it anywhere else.

In the past couple of years the food at Zesta Cucina has improved tremendously. Good selection of entrees and a nice range of price points. We had the scallops which were absolutely amazing, but had a difficult time making a choice as so many items sounded great. From past experience the crab cakes are wonderful as well. The sauces and accompaniments really enhance the flavors of the main ingredients. It's still noisy but worth putting up with for the food.

Excellent food, service & atmospher
Food was incredible, what a surprise. The sauces for all the dishes were divine! From the starters (calamari, stuffed mushrooms), salads, steaks, scallops, pasta and dessert-pretty. Some of the very best food in all of Yakima. Everything was presented artfully. Portions were generous, so the moderate prices are justified.
Vibrant spot, noise level tends to be 'energetic', so a quiet dinner may be a challenge weekend evenings. Service was amazing, we wanted for nothing. They predicted everything we needed or would need before we asked for it. Lovely decorations of hanging glass lanterns, warm and inviting, artfully presented and I personally loved the white lights on the tree branches-a food wonderland for all senses!

Food was excellent. The restaurant was busy enough that the server had problems keeping up with the load. Server was friendly and nice but seemed hurried and flustered. Service could have bee a lot better.
