Some items inthe menu may sound strange(how about pop corn soup!), but the food is really very good!

Great dining experience! The
Great dining experience! The only negative review I have was that we had to wait for around 20 minutes despite having made a reservation for a specific time. Other than that, everything was perfect. Would definitely go again!

The food was superb. I love how they took traditional foods and did a twist on them. For example, ceaser salad with a parmesan cheese creme brulee. Yummy! Or the popcorn soup, like eating the best popcorn ever. Try the ginger mojitos. The server was very attentive. Will definetly recommend to everybody and will be going back.

The noise level from the bar
The noise level from the bar was way over the top. It totally intruded into the dinig experience.
It took much, much too long for management to put a stop to it.
Once they did, the evening was very nice.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend it to people who have any issues with hearing or just want a lovely quiet evening of dinner with someone special or with friends.

Fresh, Flavorful and Funky
The food was fresh, imaginative, presented beautifully and very flavorful. I had the snapper and my wife had the seabass, both of which we would recommend. The popcorn soup appetizer was unlike anything I have ever had, not sure if that's a good thing or not but probably still worth a try. Our server, Argelia, was absolutely wonderful and charming. The chef stopped by our table two separate times to see how we were enjoying everything, which was a nice touch. The decorations and overall ambience was fun, funky and quite hip- very South Beach-esque.

Very much enjoyed our anniversary
Very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner there. More trendy than I would usually enjoy but the food and service were very good. Leave room for dessert!

Isla Verde Treat
Creative menu in an interesting, contemporary dining room. Probably the best in Isla Verde. Be sure to experience the popcorn soup. Have a cocktail before or after dinner at the Mist on top of the hotel. Great view.

The armosphere and food amazing!
Awesome food and atmosphere! Tastes for the adventurous or not so adventurous. Imagine 'popcorn soup' full of exotic flavor- we have never tasted anything so delightful to the senses! All the dishes wee ordered were just as incredible- all five senses enjoyed the evening immensely!

This was the best meal we had while in Puerto Rico. The food had elements of traditional Puerto Rican cuisine with a creative spin on it. An example of this would be the gnocchi made from maduros. The dessert we had consisted of basil flavored ice cream, a chocolate lava cake, nutella powder, and raspberry coulis.

Zest was the perfect dining experience. First, whatever else you do, get the cocktail known as The Edge. It is superb! For our entrees, my wife and I both had the pork cheeks which just fell apart (in a good way)! If you are staying in San Juan, do not pass up the opportunity to dine at Zest!

The soup in the bottle was amazing, as was the shrimp with chili sauce!

Creative and superbly executed menu
We did not have high expectations, but Zest was one of the best meals we have had in some time. The creative menu appears over the top at first glance , but the Popcorn Soup was fantastic and the butter poached lobster with squid ink rissoto melted in your mouth.
Service was great and the modern decor was cool without trying too hard . If it were closer to home we would go back again and again... We still need to try the desserts!

Great restaurant in a cool location
The food is amazing. Contemporary cuisine with original and tasty combinations (the sea bass is absolutely wonderful)
The service is good, but very slow (it is Puerto Rico!)
After dinner you can't miss the rooftop Mist. Breathtaking views and cool music.
Absolutely a must in Isla Verde.
